I stopped there for lunch with my husband and a friend. I had always thought Baxter's was expensive but their lunch menu is reasonable compared to other places on the lake. I had the roasted turkey panini with loaded baked potato soup. The panini has...More

Spur of the moment decided to eat at Baxter's. Service, while slow, was good. The food was plentiful and unrushed. Gorgeous view overlooking the lake.

My wife and I had dinner at Baxter's on a recent Sunday evening. Since there was about a 20 minute wait, we relaxed at the bar. Our bartender (Fabian M.) was extremely friendly and professional. They have a great election of craft beers on tap...More

This restaurant is always great especially if you can sit out on the patio to watch the sunset on the lake. The staff is friendly and helpful. It’s a romantic place and causal as well.

One of us had the burger, another a pasta dish, and I had a fried chicken salad. Food was great and the table by the window offered a great view of Lake Ozark. The lady seating guests seemed to be angry today.

This restaurant has been always our favorite restaurant and we start our extended weekend with a visit. This year we had a different experience. Our waitress seemed put out when we asked questions and was trite when she served us. Not sure what her problem...More

Although I don't use it I'm sure some customers do appreciate it. It really isn't any different than when restaurant attendants in big cities provide the same. Mouthwash, hairspray, make up etc.

An authentic American restaurant with a great bar … That’s the idea behind Baxter’s. We’re perfect for just about any dining occasion or gathering that calls for great food, warm, personal service and an inviting, casual atmosphere. Our classic American restaurant builds on the rich history and tradition the Lake Area is known for. We use only the finest, freshest ingredients, coupled with personal service and warm, inviting surroundings. We’re happy to bring this dining experience to the Lake of the Ozarks. Baxter’s is the perfect place for a business or casual lunch, a special evening out, a family get together after a long day on the Lake, or “just because.” We can accommodate most any group — from an intimate dinner for two to a business or family party — in our private dining room. And don’t forget our classic American bar, one of the Lake’s great places to meet friends and family.
