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.

    This is not our first visit to Baxters health most certainly will not be our last. The staff is it exceptional and extremely friendly I have never had an issue with a staff member or with any member of the kitchen staff although I would not normally talk to them their food preparation is outstanding. I would highly recommend Baxters any anyone going to the lake of the Ozarks and having a delicious evening meal. I know men’s is it the cheapest place to eat but as the old saying goes you get what you pay for and Baxters goes above and beyond thank you very much.

    I was highly disappointed. The website advertised the wonderful view and that we could see the sunset but the shades were down the majority of the time. I asked could they raise the shades and they didn’t raise them until after the sun was down. The food was TERRIBLE. There was NO seasoning on either dishes. My dish was so bad I sent it back and had cheesecake for dinner and that was mediocre. Would NOT recommend!

    My husband and I celebrated our 36th anniversary during lunchtime. Hanni, our superb waitress, served us wonderfully and pleasantly. We both enjoyed Cedar Plank Salmon—oh my gosh, delicious! Because we mentioned our anniversary, we were treated to a lovely framed photo and the best cheesecake I’ve had in a long bit. A wonderful peaceful and tasty celebration! Thank you, Baxters!
