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.

    While the food was very good , one of the entrees was served about ten minutes after all of the other entrees were served. Several staff came to the table to say that the missing entree would be at our table shortly but it took some time to arrive. Since none of the rest of us wanted to eat without all meals being served, our meals were Luke warm by the time we got to eat them. Our server apologized but didn’t seem like he was overly concerned and didn’t offer us anything for our inconvenience. We eat at this restaurant regularly and we have not encountered an issue like this before. We were surprised that the restaurant management and staff were not more accommodating given the situation.

    I’ve NEVER had anything less than stellar at Baxter’s. My husband and I were on date night and both had steaks. He likes his medium and I like mine well done. Needless to stay both were perfect and delicious! The blue cheese and bacon potatoes are to die for!! Just go and experience their excellent dining. They also have a phenomenal view of the lake.

    My wife and I were there for our Anniversary. When we booked our table the app asked if it was a special occasion. When we walked to check in for our table everyone knew it was our anniversary and congratulated us. Everyone. As for service, if I could have given Mitch, our server more stars, I would have. He was very friendly and attentive and he did a great job. The food and atmosphere were perfect. I highly recommend Baxters for a fine dining experience at the Lake.
