Baxter's Lakeside Grille
Great service, food and beautiful setting. Ali was great.
We had a business lunch there this week and it was FANTASTIC! We were able to enjoy the view while we ate and then worked, being there for a few hours. Our waitress was wonderful and caring, she really looked after us well coming now and again to ensure we had all we needed, but not too often to be a distraction to our work. We usually do this once a year, but this is the first time we've chosen Baxters for our meeting and it went really well, as in the best meeting I think we've ever had enhanced by great food and service. It is a little pricey (like 7 for a dessert), but well worth it for the ambiance and service. :)
Everything was over the top, with 1 small critique, The gorgeous sunset was a little intense coming through the sun shades for those few seats that directly face the windows. If that is the only negative comment, then you know the rest of the evening was delightful.
The food was wonderful and the staff was friendly and helpful in making a dinner selection. The views were amazing even though we did not have a window seat. Highly recommend.
My husband and I really enjoyed everything. The food, drinks, ambiance and the view!
Always a great dining experience. The food is consistently excellent. My table of four split the gooey butter cake dessert and we simply couldn’t finish it. Our server was new to us this visit and wasn’t as interactive or attentive as our pay dining experiences.
My dinner choice they were out of had to choose another.my potatoes were not cooked to my liking ,but were taken back to the kitchen.service was very good
Great view and food. Best in the area!
Great place to eat and watch the sunset. We were there to celebrate my birthday. Served a delicious piece of cheesecake with a candle and got our picture taken. No singing.
My favorite restaurant at Lake of the Ozarks!!! Always quality food, very diverse menu, excellent service.....I can't say enough good things. I love this restaurant!!! Would tell everyone, with total confidence, "if you want a great meal and everything perfect, go to Baxters!"
Best find at the lake. Great food, wonderful service, well managed! Spectacular view! Always a great experience!
We just can’t get enough of the excellent service and the food will never disappoint you.
Celebrated our 44th wedding anniversay. They even took our picture and gave us a photo.
One of our favorite restaurants at the lake.
Great service, delicious food and awesome view of the lake.
Always a good time, love the food! Great customer service!!
Great food and great service as always. We saw a beautiful sunset even though there was a call for snow. Awesome!!
Had an amazing time with a gorgeous view of the Lake from our table and EXCELLENT service from Ellie! Would highly recommend and will absolutely be returning for more first-class service in the near future...
Baxter’s is a must every time we are at the lake. Always the best service! The pork loin and mashed sweet potatoes had so much flavor. Try the Lemontini too! Delicious.
Gosh - this has to be our favorite place for eating, business meetings, anniversaries and birthdays all! There is no comparison on the lake for fine dining at a reasonable price with great service and ambiance. They make special occasions really special, are attentive without being overly fussy, correct mistakes and it's a great place to be quiet for talking and having meaningful relationships. None to compare.... :)
The best steaks at the lake by far. Highly recommend!
We arrived early for our reservation. There were numerous tables open, but the “host” directed us to the bar. After having a drink we inquired about being seated. The “host” told us rudely that he was saving tables for 6:00 reservations. So rather than a nice sit down meal we ordered from our table in the bar. 10 minutes after we were told we could not be seated and after we ordered dinner we were told a table was available. We expressed our displeasure about not having a table made available to us when we asked.. We later learned the “host” was the restaurant owner. Hard to believe the owner could lack such basic customer service skills. We have been to many great restaurants over the years. We will not be returning to Baxter’s.
We had the Baxter's Duo and was amazing. The filet was perfect and sea scallops were to die for. Thanks for a perfect evening.
Even though we were located by the kitchen for a late valentines, we didn’t get bombarded by the evening sun. Service was quick and food excellent. Well done as usual!
Great food, service, and view of the lake as always.
Spectacular place for a business lunch with superb wait staff that were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. And that doesn't even take into account the wonderful view.
Always well prepared food with friendly staff. The view is fantastic especially at sunset! Prices are reasonable. Their house wines are terrific! Love this place!!!!
Went for a late Valentines Day Dinner and it was great as always.
My steak was tough & dry which is not typical. We always have fantastic food! I was only given a butter knife to cut it. Our waitress was very friendly but didn't come back to our table after we were served our food until she come back to ask if we wanted dessert. We don't normally have that bad of service or food. We always really enjoy going there. We will be back as we do realize that sometimes they just may be having a bad night.
My boyfriend and I went to Baxter’s for a late Valentines Day and everything was phenomenal. I would recommend a dinner here for any type of occasion; promotion, date night, maybe even a family celebration of some sort. It definitely lived up to my expectations. We will be back!
Baxter's has always been our "go to" restaurant at the lake. It is a bit pricey but the food has always been well worth the cost. They have great customer service, fabulous views, and an outstanding selection of food. Their steaks simply cannot be beaten! Go! You won't regret it
Always enjoy their hospitality and wonderful dinner.
Extremely nice r, great food, great service, beautiful view of the lake
Great food as always.
Good selection and specials .
Our waitress April was the BEST!!! We did not want for anything, she was on top of her game! The rest of the staff was very friendly and professional. It was a very enjoyable Valentines Day, thank you!!
The best restaurant at the lake by far! Beautiful view and fantastic food and service.
We had an amazing pre-Valentine's Day dinner. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and there's no better way to end a meal than with that gooey butter cake!
We took our 3 kids to Baxter to celebrate dinner and it was amazing. Our older 2 are teenagers but we had our 1 year old and our server Heather treated everyone with the upmost respect. The food was all wonderful and the atmosphere was great. Everyone was very respectful.
Everything was AMAZING!!!! EVERYTHING!!!! easy reservations! and you DO want to make those because this place is ALWAYS BUSY!!!! you can't just walk in ( they take your jackets so you don't carry them with you) and get table right away yopu will have to wait till its available. so , save you some time and get reservations done. I took my boyfriend there for his Birthday. he has 20 oz rib eye steak ( cooked - medium) , and it was perfect)!!!!! and HUGE! he LOVED it!!! I had some spicy chicken with rice . each meal was about $20 plus drinks , and appetizer ( + $13) the whole thing was about $105 or so but we were so full! he got surprise from Baxters - it was a picture they took of us and put in in their Bday card as a happy Bday to him from BAXTERS and very yummy FREE cheesecake piece with candle . it sure made him AND me smile ! Wonderful experience ! We can't wait to be back even though it took us 1 hour to get there ! Excellent service !
