Baxter's Lakeside Grille
Wondeful View + Great FoodWe have always enjoyed Baxters for the view but the food and service are also wonderful. They honored our request for a window table - on Mother's Day no less - and we have another wonderful experience. We have gone to Baxter's several times and it has always been a good experience. We like to take visitors there as we know the food etc. will always be impressive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur New Favorite PlaceFriends had taken us there once before and we were impressed with the service and food and decided to try it again to celebrate Mother's Day and our 30th Anniversary. We were not disappointed. The owner greeted us and wished us a Happy Anniversary (I had indicated the occasion on my reservation request through Open Table). We had to wait a few minutes for the table they had selected for us, but it was certainly worth it. We could see up and down the lake and it was spectacular.
Ellie, our server, was very attentive and efficient. She took our photo and then came back a few minutes later with the picture in a frame!
Try the crab cakes. The pan-seared scallops were excellent, as was the prime ribeye steak.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerWe had a Mother's Day evening.

First, the service was supreme!! Our waitress was outstanding! The scenic view was incredible. We overlooked the lake and had a group of eight hawks that entertained us flying across the cliffs, the lake, and by our window view. Just breathtaking. Then came the food (after the delicious lemontinis). The food was magnificent. Delicious. Scrumptious. Mouthwatering. Sorry, I can't say enough. It was superb! Then, our waitress brought my wife a cheesecake slice with lighted candle. She took our picture. I assumed she would get my email to send it to me, but they actually had a cardboard framed Baxter picture waiting for us on our way out!

The food we had was delicious, especially the chicken tortilla soup, wasabi smashed potatoes, sweet potato smashed potatoes, and bread. The only issue on this trip was the sirloin steaks. We ordered them medium, and they came out medium well. In addition, the steaks were a little grisly in parts. This was different from my last experience there when the steaks were perfect. The steaks were still good on this trip, just not exactly right.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMtheir food is always delicious.their food is always delicious. Everyone at our table (5) loved their food.

Hostess could have been more welcoming.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet Sunday night at the Lake.We only go to the Lake of the Ozarks about once a year but Baxter's is becoming our go to restaurant. In this case finding a nice restaurant on a Sunday night during low season at the Lake is a bit difficult. Through Open Table, there were about five, and thankfully, Baxter's was one of them. Even though we were the last table for them that night, we were not felt rushed at all. My wife had her favorite which was the Tim's salad. I had the meatloaf. All of it very good. We should have stopped there but we had the brownie, ice cream and caramel dessert. It was enough to feed four! Service was very good. She answered the questions we had and brought out bread, salad and entrees in a very timely manner.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother supererb meal at BaxtersBaxters was the usual great food, great service and an enjoyable experience.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
