Baxter's Lakeside Grille Ratings and Reviews
Truly amazing, Baxter’s will not disappoint. I’m so thankful every time when we return. The food is incredible, but the experience fully supports the food. The staff is well-trained and personable and the ambiance is romantic, but somehow fosters incredible conversation. I’ll be back many times!
My wife and I went out for date night and were looking for some "really good" food. Baxter's did not disappoint. I had the rib-eye & she had the scallops. Both were excellent! Oh, and the calamari.... YUM. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly! Will definitely be back! Recommend reservations.
We arrived 10 minutes early, the person at the booth made the comment that we were early snidely. We wanted for our reservation, which we were 15 minutes late to be seated. We sat for an extended period of time as our waitress greeted us and took our drink orders. We let her know we were running behind because our reservation was seated late and we had our order ready. She ignored that we had our orders ready and quickly left the table after explaining the specials. She returned for our drink orders and quickly left the table again. She dropped off our drinks and took our order further delaying our plans for the evening.
I’m not exactly sure if I would recommend this establishment after our dining experience.
I understand we were just a small table and a small part of their revenue for the evening. But you should treat your small table with urgency and respect the same as your large.
We arrived early for lunch and were immediately seated at our requested window table. Our server was friendly & attentative.The fish sandwiches were delicious, the signature potato soup fantastic, and the view of the Lake was absolutely amazing. ....a wonderfully relaxing dining experience.
Have chosen this as our special place to celebrate since we settled in Oz. This was our second visit and our special annual holiday dinner. We went early to see the last of the sunset and the lights twinkle on around the Lake. Do wish the bar had had some holiday drinks - like my favorite eggnog martini. Next year, please?
My cousin suggested we have dinner at Baxter's for their going away celebration. Really enjoyed the meal and nice atmosphere. Prices are good, atmosphere very relaxing, service was excellent. Lighting is a little too dim for reading the menu which is the reason for the 4 star rating for Ambiance.
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.
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!
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!
