I wanted a special dinner with my 10 year old Granddaughter & Baxters was the perfect choice for our evening together. My Granddaughter chose the scallops & I had the filet, both being excellent. Baxters did not disappoint in the meal or the service. It was a little pricey, but I felt the occasion made it worth it.

One of best overall restaurants at the lake. Great food for a fair price in a quiet, comfortable atmosphere with spectacular views of the lake.

Food was DELICIOUS as always! Grilled chicken was moist and very much enjoyed, Carbonara could have been salted more, but that was taken care of at the table. Ceasar salad was quite well peppered, so taste before adding more.
I suggest staying away from the dirty martini. Don't know what they do but both times I've ordered one it tasted watered down and flavorless. Even the blue cheese stuffed olives couldn't save it. Also had them use Ketel 1 so even with decent vodka this drink was disappointing.
Baxter's is a great dining option at the Lake of the Ozarks! I highly recommend it!

This is a good restaurant for food, value and service. They usually do a really good job. This time however the food was short of the mark. Steak and prime rib tough and flavorless. Have confidence they will correct this problem

The atmosphere and view offered a perfect place to celebrate a 95th birthday. The service was prompt without rushing and very accommodating to special requests. The Cajun pasta with shrimp and andouille was outstanding in taste and satisfying quantity for the men. Breaded shrimp , baked potato soup and Caesar salad satisfied the women. Will definitely return to dine even without special occasion

Baxters is our favorite restaurant for lunch and dinner alike. Great happy hour in the bar, fabulous appetizers and friendly staff. Over time we tried just about everything on the menu and its hard to pick our favorite because everything is always delicious. No mater what the occasion Baxters Grill is perfect choice

We've eaten at Baxter's for years. It is always a wonderful meal. The only negative is the host/hostess staff. They always seem annoyed that you have walked in the door. The same man and young woman have been there for years. I don't believe we have seen them crack a smile more than twice. They are very unwelcoming.

We were treated to a table with a lake view to celebrate ou friends 91st birthday. The halibut my husband and I shared was perfect and the others enjoyed salmon and ribs which they raved about! Our waitress took a picture and presented the birthday boy with a card at the end of the meal! Absolutely memorable!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there last night. We started with cucumber martinis that were excellent. The ahi tuna appetizer was outstanding as always. For our main course we both had the sea bass which was served with perfectly prepared green beans and roasted potatoes. The seas bass had a very nice crust on the outside and was perfect on the inside as well. This meal paired excellent with their Honig Sauvignon blanc. Dessert was their wonderful cheese cake. I highly recommended this restaurant. Jesse was our server and did an excellent job. Thanks for a great evening.

We made a reservation for our anniversary, and had noted that it was an anniversary in the reservation. When we arrived, the staff had setup a table next to the window with a perfect view of the sunset over the water. Every staff member seemed to be aware that it was our anniversary, as they would all congratulate us. At the end they brought us a surprise desert with a candle. Over all they made us feel very welcome, and helped to make our anniversary dinner something very special! Not to mention that we always love the food, and have never had a bad dish at Baxter's....
