The food and service were excellent. I would recommend the fillet, best I ever had!
Excellent service and outstanding food. Great view of the lake.
Took our sister-in-law and her husband, along with two others to celebrate their 45th anniversary. This was the couples first experience at the lake. Rainy day but still a beautiful view. Dinner was just ok on this trip, veggies a little under cooked and one of the couples steak was not cooked to order but our guest was not wanting to say anything to management. Baxters is our favorite go too year around. Always a great place to visit and take friends and family to during their visits.
Wonderful as usual. Amazing food and even better views
Food was excellent as always. Sarah our server was fantastic, always remembers us and what we like!! Great view!!
Always a delight to dine at Baxter’s! They have the BEST Chilean sea bass.
We were a party of 15, so it would be a challenge for many restaurants. However, our server, April, had no trouble whatsoever providing an outstanding experience. The food came out for everyone within a few minutes, and it was all properly prepared and delicious!
We love Baxter’s. They have the best appetizers around. Their fish and steaks are always good. We went for our anniversary and they were so sweet. They took a pic of us which they gave us and a nice dessert. Service is always good too!
Awesome all around. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the service and food were fast. A little slower pace would have made a special evening that much better. We will definitely be back
Always a very nice place to dine. Good food, excellent service and great views.
Everything was perfect for this date with my sweetheart!
Always great food.. it’s our “go to” for a date night due to the atmosphere and persistent good food.
This is one of our favorite places when we make the trip to the lake. We love the food, service, and of course the beautiful views!
Great service and wonderful food!
Great to be outdoors. Thanks Ted
Ordered the 10 oz. filet medium. It came out medium well. Did not send it back but was a little disappointed especially for the price paid. The other two steaks were fine as were the rest of our meals. Be careful with those expensive steaks! Our service from April was outstanding!
Simply the best !!!
I chose Baxter's for my birthday dinner because I'm never disappointed with their food, ambiance or service. My filet was perfectly cooked and the sides were delicious as always.
Excellent service. My special request for being seated on the patio for a special date night was able to be met. We had the steak special and grilled Chilean sea bass. Both were perfectly cooked. The soup of the day tomato red pepper was delicious. Very pleased.
Birthday and 2 anniversaries
The ribeye special my husband had was one of the best steaks he has ever had!
There was very little social distancing!
The food was amazing and the service was outstanding, would highly recommend.
Beautiful view, and great place for an anniversary dinner! They went out of their way to make our evening special.
Baxters always has the same great food and service. My ribs were outstanding. I was disappointed to see no masks or social distancing. No reservations allowed for patio dining. It didn’t feel very friendly in these difficult Covid times.
Mann ! That view during sunset hrs was absolutely stunning ! " Oct. 8th. " 2020 . The service was great ! Leaving us alone for just the write amount of time ! Food was magnificent ! Wine was even better ( 2 Bottles ) . Cant wait to go back ! 5 stars .
Outstanding with the exception of a large group next to us being loud and rude.
-Filet was delicious, excellent sear cooked to a perfect Medium.
-Green beans were perfect. Fresh crisp and delicious.
-House Salad, vibrant spring mix of greens, excellent dimension in the tomatoes.
-Prosciutto, a bit dry, didn't age well...But tasty all the same.
-Lobster tail, had characteristics of Freezer burn? Tough and chewy. Not fresh. Freshly defrosted, refrozen & defrosted once more perhaps. Butter sauce for dipping was more vegetable oil than butter, it lacked basic flavor enhancing characteristics, like salt.
-Our bottle of Moet & Chandon (unusually overpriced for a$50 bottle) but insult to injury, it was compromised by either sun, heat or both. Requested Cristal or Dom but not available. The Moet was chilled on ice in a Dom Perignon Chiller though.
-Thin sliced Portobello mushroom tossed in vinaigrette served with cheese & biscotti.
Mushroom slices were slimy and unpalatable. Cheese was tasty though. Biscotti are best cooked twice, to a crisp, such as these but only when served with coffee, tea or other liquid. When served with other foods I find it best to leave a bit of a slight tenderness to the centers.
Baxter's is our favorite place at the Lake of the Ozarks. The food is wonderful and the service is always too notch.
Everything was great!
I wish the servers and from desk people would wear masks.
They did an absolutely fantastic job for our group. The food, service and atmosphere were outstanding.
The food was very good, as always. Face masks were not worn by the staff nor patrons upon entering. If one is concerned about the spread of COVID-19, this is not the place to be.
Baxter's is my favorite lake restaurant! The food and service are always outstanding!
Very enjoyable evening with a beautiful view of the lake on the patio. Amazing food & service! Will definitely be back!
Waited an hour and a half after we ordered to get our food. (It was after 9:30 before our food came) Food was not hot and the new potatoes were not done. Server was inattentive and rude. We will not be going back
Birthday they made her feel special w a picture of all of us
Great place with excellent service. Although my dinner didn’t fit my taste it was prepared well and the sides were great.
Baxter’s is always a lake favorite. They never disappoint. We would highly recommend for any occasion, or just simply a evening out.
Baxter's Lakeside Grille is the place to go when you want excellent food, great service and an amazing view! We have been enjoying dinners at Baxter's for several years and have never been disappointed. Make sure you save room for the gooey butter cake- it is well worth the calories!!
