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.

    I don't believe I have ever written a negative review, the few that I have done were in appreciation of top notch experiences. This was a very bad experience, worst ever at the Lake. In my advanced request for a reservation of 10 I had asked for the patio (happy hour) or side room. Arrived to be told the Patio was not open and they felt we wouldn't like the side room due to not being able to hear as well?? We've all lived hear for 10+ years and have enjoyed special events in the side room in the past, this time it was my Birthday celebration with friends. My wife was out of town and running late so I asked if we could wait a bit to be seated. NO, needed to be seated and order right away, others needed the table (the place was almost empty) asked for a different table, maybe the side room? NO, not possible! We all agreed it would be best to leave as my wife arrived. We went to Horseshoe Bend Bar and Grill and had a Wonderful meal and experience at their Speakeasy.

    We travel a lot & like to visit local restaurants wherever we go. Baxter’s did not disappoint! Beautiful view! The baked potato soup was the best I’ve ever had in a restaurant. The key lime martini was good but the island blue martini was better. Filet & Ribeye were both great. Even their baked potatoes were above par. Great food & service!

    I had my birthday dinner at Baxters. They were very busy when we walked in. The food was wonderful. The waiter suggested I had the scallops blackened for more flavor. Great suggestion. My husband had the ribeye special and was prepared to perfection. Great service. Our waiter took our picture earlier in the meal and gave it to me when we received the bill. We had not been to Baxters in a long time. It did not disappoint‼️.

    We made reservations for a late lunch. There were not many people so it was quiet, which I liked. We each ordered the salmon and it was perfectly cooked. The Baxter’s Red Blend wine was suggested by the waitress to have with the salmon. It was a great choice. The luncheon portions were just right. We splurged and had the New York Cheesecake and it was outstanding. It was a pleasant afternoon and as always the view outstanding.
