I really like Baxter’s. The food is delicious, servers take good care of you and your lunch or dinner, and the atmosphere and view of the lake is beautiful. I ordered the beef medallions and mashed potatoes which were excellent. We also got the sampler...More

We were here for dinner on a Monday evening and it appeared that there were only a few tables occupied in the restaurant. It took over 45 minutes to receive our food and there was no explanation as to why it took so long. However,...More

Second visit as good as the first. Baxter’s seems consistent in two visits. Business party of 4 and all enjoyed entree’s from steak to seafood. Oh and did I mention the view...plan your meal around sunset...it has to be the best on the lake.

From comfort food to Salmon served on a cedar plank, you will likely find something to enjoy. The meatloaf with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans hit the spot. Lovely decor and clean.

I had a sirloin steak and it was very good. It is a little pricy if you choose the more expensive entrees, of which there are many, but my 10 oz steak was more than enough and not a bad price when you consider we...More

Both of us had the ribeye with differing requests for how well done. Both arrived perfectly prepared and the accompanying steak butter was good. Drinks were well-prepared and reasonable for the lake. We dined at another location the next night and there was no comparison;...More

Food is excellent and service is fast. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because we were uncomfortable during our time because of the cold vent throwing cold air on us throughout

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.
