Fabulous Salmon dinner!! Others enjoyed steak, tuna and ribeye dinners.
Service is never anything less than first class.
We loved the atmosphere of this restauarant! It was so cozy and quaint. Even though we were there during evening hours, the window view was breathtaking. Our teen children enjoyed the variety of the foods on the menu and were excited to try some new dishes. Everything tasted delicious!
As always, great food and great service. Best steak at The Lake.
We were at the Lodge celebrating our salon Christmas and dined at Baxters....wonderful atmosphere and the food was superb. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was perfect. Also, don't miss out on the Gooey Butter Cake with Cinamon Ice Cream....yummy
It was very good!! Not only that, but I took a guest there and they seemed to enjoy it a lot!
Greeted with Happy Anniversary..table ready immediately...servers repeatedly congratulated us and took our pic and presented to us with complementary cheesecake....dinner delicious as usual...awesome experience...we will be back!
Our dinner was to celebrate a successful software conversion and the addition of a new staff member. We all ordered different entrees and everyone was pleased with their choice. The service the right level of attention. We were able to visit at length without feeling pressure to give up our table. We all agreed it was an excellent experience.
Baxter's never fails us. Great food, great service, and great views. I would recommend Baxter's to anyone.
Perfectly cooked and seasoned steak AGAIN! Went here for my birthday earlier in the year. Opted for “just” the filet instead of duo with scallops. It was perfectly cooked and tasted awesome! Caesar salad had WAY too much cheese so you might want to ask for less or on the side. Their sauces are incredible and steak came out a perfect medium rare! Great job!
We love the food and the folks! Each request we had was honored, and the host is great.
We come back often. The food is always outstanding and so is the service. Love this place!
Great food and atmosphere. Always consistent and fairly priced. Love Baxters!
As expected, Baxter’s food and service was terrific. It truly made my wife’s birthday celebration memorable. You just cannot find a better restaurant at the lake. We do not go to the lake without going to Baxter’s. They always provide a wonderful meal that is always served by pleasant servers in a terrific atmosphere.
Always our favorite! Amazing food, ambience, and service.
We went and when we arrived we had one more person than the original reservation. We were reprimanded by the manager Which made us feel uncomfortable. After eating and spending about $350.00 we were never asked if we wanted dessert. As we were finishing up our last glass of wine the waitress came and said the manager would appreciate if we would leave because the next reservation had arrived. I have never been treated so poorly at a restaurant in my life. We have been to Baxters many times but will not be going there again. The older gentleman at the front desk needs to be replaced. He is rude!!
We went for my Granddaughters 13th birthday on Black Friday. Had reservations and needed to move the time forward a couple hours. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our request. We had a lake view window table and the food was absolutely delicious. My granddaughter was surprised with cheesecake for her birthday. The server took her picture and printed and framed it for her as a souvenir. Thank you Baxters for a wonderful experience.
Baxters is our favorite restaurant at the lake. Ashley, the hostess always meets the customers with an amazing smile. We always feel so welcome and the food is excellent.
Great, beautiful view
Great food and service as always! We continue to bring visitors to the lake area to Baxters and everyone has a great time and loves the food!
Wonderful service and incredible eats here! We had the filet, scallops and tilapia with crab. Also had a brownie dessert to die for. Highly recommend although it is pricey - assume you will spend $30-40 a plate although cheaper options are available on the menu.
Was there with my honey bunny of 44 years plus my 73rd BD Great Evening have been to there Happy Hour on Fridays many times its the place to be. There Bartenders make the best martins according to my wife. Just a Great place to dine and have drinks anytime of the year.
I brought my parents here who were from out of town. I requested on the notes that we please have a window view if possible as we were celebrating my father’s late birthday. Upon arrival, we were sat in front of a window but one with essentially the worst view. There were three open tables right with the best view that were not filled. We kindly asked the server if there was any way we could move there. “Sorry. That’s reserved.” Is what he said. Now i wouldn’t have thought much of that except the website specifically says we do not book tables, we book times. I did not understand why, if we were there and the table was open, we could not sit there. Not only that, but that table stayed open the ENTIRE time we ate our dinner. No one ever sat there, and we even walked over there to look at the view. The view i wanted my dad to see.
In addition to that, each of our four plates arrived cool. Steaks were cool, potatoes were warm. As we were already not having good service, we didn’t want to risk agitating the waitress further who already seemed annoyed we were splitting meals. Even though we paid the split plate fee. Her attitude changed immensely when we used the word “split.”
Between the food being cold and being denied an OPEN table which stayed open our entire stay... my parents wonder why we took them there. Highly disappointed.
Food was excellent. Service was perfect, workers were very friendly. Thanks for a great meal.
Ted Geiger is tremendous Thanks for all he does. JB
Baxters is by far the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.
First time to Baxter's on a recommendation from our son. We were not disappointed in our dinners or the dessert. The view of the Lake is spectacular. Service was excellent. Good choice of appetizers and main dishes. Look them up on the internet and check out their dinners. Ours was outstanding and we are looking forward to our next chance for a meal at Baxter's.
One of our top choices in the LOTO area. The food was excellent.
This place is awesome! Great food, and service is always the best! I am a loyal customer and will continue to visit this great place on the lake!
As good as it gets - great location overlooking Lake Ozark, great service, great drinks, and reasonably priced delicious food. Trying, really trying to watch calorie intake and portion sizes, then fell into this awful trap. Started with a delicious margarita, house salad, and then came the filet mignon smothered in mushrooms with scallops. Nice little buttery rolls and green beans had me thinking - just one more bite, and as I took one more bite - everything was gone - clean plate(s). My wife told Baxter's it was my Birthday, so they forced a gooey butter cake on me with whipped cream, chocolate, and caramel drizzle on the side. I only ate 3/4 - and had an unbelievable meal. Thank you wifey, Baxter, and all our servers - great day before birthday dinner!
Always love Baxter’s. Great views of the lake, excellent steaks and nice ambiance.
Excellent food and service. Staff was very accommodating even though they were extremely busy
Not normal dishs as you would think would be. Meatloaf with tomato gravy,ect not brown
salads try to be fancy but not
Fantastic food and service as always. Thank you Baxters team!
Another great time with guests in town! Service is always great and there isn’t a better place for food at the lake!
The atmosphere, food, and our waitress was fantastic. The gentlemen greeting customers at front desk could be more friendly. We had a reservation and two people in our party were running late. We asked to be seated because we wanted to begin ordering drinks and appetizers and he refused to seat us until he was able to count everyone in our party himself. They should disclose when making a reservation that they will refuse to seat you if entire party is not present, even if you are trying to spend money... other than that, the rest of the experience was great. A little pricey but I think you are paying for the atmosphere on the lake. The food did not disappoint though! We had a mix of seafood and steaks at our table and all were happy.
Love Baxter’s. Great food and service every time we visit.
The photo taken by our waitress for my birthday celebration was a lovely touch!
We love going to Baxters. Their house salad with ranch dressing is amazing, steaks jave always been cooked perfect the first time and the gooey butter cake is to die for!!
My family and I celebrate my birthday here and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and they even surprised me with a birthday dessert!!
Everything was wonderful. Food is amazing, view is outstanding, staff goes out of their way to be welcoming. My only reason for the 4 star rating is that my husband's leftover ribeye steak went home with someone else. I am sure that other diner was also disappointed, and it was a waste of delicious food for us to toss it in the trash. We won't let them package our leftovers away from the table next time.
