Baxter’s Black Sheep Saloon Berwyn – Closed

NOTE: Baxter’s Black Sheep closed in December 2010.

The Berwyn space that was the Main Street Café is now Baxter’s Black Sheep Saloon. This shouldn’t be all that surprising, considering that Main Street Cafe co-owner Jessica Morrison is the daughter of the owner of Baxter’s Saloon in Paoli.

We don’t have any further details, though one might guess a simplification of the menu would be among minor changes to the place. If you’ve been, comment below.

  1. Sorry — tried to send you this on the Contact Us section but it read: Comments Are Closed.

    The snake-bit lower level space on N Wayne Ave right by the Wayne train station (it was a girls clothing store, then a cake bakery for about a minute) has posted a sign: Pizza Restaurant coming..
    The space above, the old Cafe Procopio, looks nearly ready to open with a Yogo Santo something, complete with a cow on the logo. Good luck to all.

  2. We had been to this restaurant last winter and really liked it, so when we had gotten a gift certificate on, we decided to go back. We had a nice table by the window and there was music, we were looking forward to a nice relaxing meal with good food. Boy, were we disappointed. Our server took our drink order and then disappeared–after about 15 minutes we had to ask the hostess to remind him about our order. We finally got our drinks, my wine was lukewarm and my husband’s beer was flat and he had to send it back. We had to ask for bread while we saw other tables getting it without asking. When our order came, my husband had ordered a burger with bbq sauce and cheese, however the burger came with neither of these items. When he pointed it out to the hostess (who was obviously with the management), she did not even apologize, she acted like she didn’t even know what was supposed to be on the burger, took it back, and when it came back, all the kitchen did was slather it with bbq sauce–obviously not the menu item my husband had ordered. He returned it again. He ended up with another dish which we paid full price for–we were never offered any apologies, discounts or anything to compensate for the errors. Fortunately we had the coupon, but unfortunately, the tip had to be included. The food was just mediocre and the service was atrocious. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

  3. Recently me and 2 friends of mine decided to check out the new Baxters restaurant in Berwyn. We were greeted promptly and sat in a nice spacious booth. The decor was nice, with dark wood grains, and rustic exposed brick walls. Our server told us the daily specials, took our drink order. I had a Victory, though it was hard to decide; they have a great draft selection, and a full bar as well. For dinner I had the Cedar Plank Salmon. It was cooked to near perfection, served with fresh green beans and roasted potatoes. The salmon also came with a horseradish dijon glaze sauce on the side (delicious). My other friends had a Filet, and the other the Seared Sea Scallops with an apricot habenero sauce. All of us were more than impressed with taste, presentaion and service over at Baxters. I highly recommend checking this cozy suburban restaurant when you get the chance! I will be back for sure!

  4. I dined at Baxter’s Black Sheep last night with some friends, and had a lovely time. The service was very good, and the ambiance could not have been better. We sat in a cozy candle lit booth that allowed us to converse while live music played in the front area. We enjoyed our drinks over some warm bread with olive oil and a parmesan cheese and herb mixture while we waited for our food to arrive. I ordered the Ahi Tuna appetizer that was served with ginger, wasabi and a warm soy/teriyaki sauce that was simply amazing. One of my friends enjoyed one of the Kobe burgers with sweet potato fries while another enjoyed the Chicken Quesidillas (which I did try, despite my New Year’s resolutions – yum!) The final member of our party tried the Scallops that were served with an apricot habenero sauce. They were apparently delicious, although she would not share… We had a fabulous creme brulee for dessert. I would reccommend this restaurant to anyone. We will definately be back!

  5. Steverino maybe try splurge and try an actual entree. Ron has done it yet again. I love the Scallops entree! Mussels are great too!

  6. When I met friends for dinner here last night, we were served what appeared to be little better than frozen TV-dinners. The special was OK — 4 fairly small, crabmeat-stuffed mushrooms. Before we were 1/2-way done with our apps, the mains were presented and a comical shuffling of plates to make room ensued. It apparently did not dawn on the staff that we should be able to finish one serving before the next is brought out. The overall color of the entrees when served was an unsettling pale brown sameness. It was the worst fish and chips I’ve ever had, including the cheapest frozen meal I’ve ever made at home. The batter was mushily separated from what little fish constituted the 2 meager filet portions. The chips were just plain sad. The cole slaw smelled funny, but I ate it anyways because I was so hungry. It actually tasted good, though. Thankfully, my wife let me have a couple bites of her burger, which was decent, but apparently made from a squarish frozen beef pattie. When we got in the car, we immediately compared notes and we had a match for what amounts to the most unpleasant dining experience in years, possibly ever. The chef at Baxter’s Black Sheep Saloon should be ashamed of what is coming out of his/her kitchen and being served to the guests. We won’t be back and am obviously encouraging others to stay away. What a complete disappointment.

  7. I LOVE Ron & Jen and –they are Great and they try to always do a GREAT job–we will stop in very soon–so be READY!!
