This place is very popular so be sure to make reservations (on website). We had the calamari as an appetizer (delicious) and we each had a house specialty. What we had was yummy and enjoyed some view of the lake. Although we didn't go to...More

My wife and I had the cedar plank salmon and the Jamaican jerk chicken. Absolutely amazing as always. We were so full that we couldn't fathom having dessert but at the same time couldn't imagine leaving without one. So we got the gooey butter cake...More

Good marina with a good restaurant. Not a huge menu but everything we had was very good. Not alot of choices on table rock lake so glad we found something so reasonable and good.

First time here for lunch and it was excellent. We arrived right at 11:30 and the manager was a little grumpy with the guests, but the waitstaff made up for it. The food was very good.

With a large family, it can be difficult to find something everyone likes. Baxter's had a delicious menu and great service. The view was outstanding. Come hungry and make sure to make reservations. A must-visit place at the lake.

I have to say, the lake view and happy hour specials are very good. Food quality and variety is strong and a decent value. My biggest concern relates to the staff. I've had very mixed experiences, including an older gentleman who I assume is an...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.
