didn't like the hostess telling us that someone was waiting for the table and we needed to leave We were only there 15 minutes after we finished paying the bill She could have asked us to move to the bar and comped the first drink for us moving
Great food and view. Service was average. Manager was very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely return.
They really took care of my wife and I for our anniversary. We will definitely be making this a new “regular” spot.
Been here many times and has never disappointed. Will definitely be back.
Baxter’s is the best restaurant at the Lake. It’s an absolute pleasure to dine there.
The sunset was incredible and created wonderful atmosphere. Our food was unique and very good
Fantastic food and service as always.
Reservation was ready as scheduled.
Baxter's never disappoints. It's always our go-to place for a special occasion, or for just a great meal.
Excellent as always.Service was perfect.Food was very tasty,nice selection
A group of us us from a conference met here. Our waitress was great, she took our antics and gave them back too.
as usual everything was great. We have a hard time going anywhere else. Sea Bass and Salmon are always done perfect. Love your restaurant.
The meal was very good, the service was exceptional. We felt very spoiled.
As always, Baxter's is the BEST at the Lake of the Ozarks! We love it, and try to eat there every time we go to the lake. Be sure to make a reservation, as it is always busy, and that is because it is just so wonderful! We celebrated two birthdays, and could not have chosen a better place to do that. Thank you Baxter's!
Great food and the view is the best at the lake! Even got to see fireworks from our outside table.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Beautiful view. Service was outstanding.
Thank you to Ted and Ashley. You always make our visit excellent. Not the best waiter this time for diner but that’s very unusual. Dylan and Marty are very good at the bar.
This is the best place at the lake for a nice dinner by far. No one compares. Phil & Teresa
Wonderful meal and ambiance at the lake! Our family loves the food and the spectacular view is always a crowd pleaser with friends and family.
BEAUTIFUL views of the lake, excellent food and EXCEPTIONAL staff!
The food and the service was amazing! We were treated like the most important people in the world.
It's one of our favorites around the lake, stunning views and a great place to take visitors from outside the US! This was one such time and we were favored with a table that was the best position for watching the lake aside from one thing - it must have been close to the kitchen and people were going past us the whole time. The saddest thing was our African friends seeing all the food that is wasted and then thrown away....
We had great food, I wish they did onion rings or mushrooms as an Hors d'oeuvre or more options for sharing. We had a great waitress and everything else was stellar. We'll definitely be back. :)
Absolutely fine dining without being stuffy or pretentious. Incredible view of the lake, first class steaks and friendly service. You cannot go wrong dining here.
In town weekend of shootout. When seated, we told hostess we had requested a table by window for sunset. She told us those requests were on first come first serve and since their record showed we made our reservation that day this booth (tall no view of window) was what they had. When I corrected her and told her the reservation had been made the morning before (which may still have been too late), she said ....oh well we have a large party and those tables are taken.
The original server got moved to shootout party and told us a different server would be by to serve us- vs a personal handoff. She also shared the the original party of 20 became 40 (which might be what happened to our table with a view)
While the new server was quite nice, there were extremely long waits in between visits and had to have someone go find her in order to pay tab. (Frustrating to have to ask to pay) while I understand the money spent by the party of 40 was significantly more than our party of 4, the value of each dollar is the same. We had friends who had been there a few weeks before and said it was great. Their 2nd visit was not, the likelihood of returning to that area is high (couple times in next year); however the likelihood of returning to Baxter’s is unfortunately low.
Always have an A+ experience when dining. The food and view can not be beat. Our favorite restaurant at the lake!
I came here for a business meeting and this was the best atmosphere, food, and service that I could have asked for. The staff was super-nice and considerate of the fact that we didn't want to order as quickly as most other customers were.
I will definitely be back.
Great food, scenic view. Thanks for adding 4 more people to our reservation on a busy night.
A little too dark, would like a little more lighting.
High school girlfriend’s reunion. As always Ashley’ was such a pleasant host. Her smile always makes your feel so welcome!
My all time favorite restaurant in the entire state of Missouri, We drive 2 hours, and it’s so worth it! Great food, service, atmosphere, it’s just outstanding. Even the owner Ted, is always very personable, and makes us feel special.
Food was amazing great service and great views!
Great food and service as always. View is awesome, especially at sunset.
They made our 49th anniversary celebration great! The server even took a photo of us and gave it to us when we left.
We had a reservation and requested a table by the window. He told us they didn't have one...as we were sitting three tables soon became available so we asked to move and he said they were taken already...there was one table that didn't get filled for at least 15 min. For some reason he didn't want to make us happy!
As usual, never a bad meal. Over the top food and fantastic service.
Wonderful meal and excellent service!
Although the food at Baxter's was fantastic the service was not. We called 24 hours in advance to ask to add 2 more people to our reservation and received a very rude response from the hostess. We thought it was nice to call ahead and change the reservation rather than show up and expect them to change it for us. We had to wait 15-20 minutes to sit down to our reservation. The waitress was very slow while it was not busy. We waited 10 minutes just for our waters. The food was great but I was not happy with the rudeness of the hostess and the slow service.
Love Baxter’s! We come every year to celebrate my birthday. Have never had a bad experience.
Baxter's is our "go to" place. The Menu has something for everyone and the food is always perfectly prepared.
The Chilean sea bass is amazing!! I will order it again. I wish the seating could be changed to allow more patrons to enjoy the view.
My Husband and I dine here often. They never disappoint with food or the outstanding service. I had the scallops with champagne cream sauce, always a good choice. My husband had the Mussels yummy.
Our waiter ruined what we hoped would be a wonderful dinner with old friends.
Outstanding menu and service. Our favorite place at Lake of the Ozarks.
