Overall an excellent evening! Has to move tables which was no big deal to us but received a bottle of wine for doing so. Always a pleasant experience.
Celebrated a birthday with the family and had a great meal and view.
Fabulous dinner! The steak was amazing - it was all great!
One of the best places at the lake with amazing views, good service and good food - the salads usually are limp which is too bad but overall food is good
Everything about our experience was superb! Can’t wait to go back! Loved it!
Always a great meal at Baxter's! This has become the place on the Lake for quality food!
Other than the waitress charging me for a salad she said I could substitute without additional charge, everything was exceptional.
Would order the meatloaf over the scallops. Meatloaf was very good and scallops were gritty.
Best steak we have ever had. Great service as well
As always, Baxters is a stellar dining experience! It is a lovely restaurant with a fantastic lake view, outstanding food exquisitely prepared, and delightful attentive wait staff! Baxters sets themselves apart from other restaurant by the personal touches that create a memorable dining experience and make a customer feel special and truly valued. What may seem like simple gestures like recognizing a returning customer when they walk through the door or providing a special dessert for a special occasion embosies their commitment to exemplifying genuine customer service.
This restaurant boasts it's incredible view, and rightfully so. Appetizers were great, entrée was lacking. The service was great, very hospitable.
My Sea Bass was exceptional but my husbands strip was over seasoned with salt. We have found that restaurants are over seasoning with salt no matter were we go.
Why the SALT?????
Baxter's is my favorite dining destination at the lake...whether it is lunch or dinner it is an memorable experience. The food, service, ambiance never waivers....it is always top notch.
I have never been disappointed at Baxter's, which is why we chose this venue to take our out of town guest. We ordered halibut, bay scallops, and filet mignon. All were outstanding, and our only regret was that we were too full to try the gooey butter cake for dessert. The service was also excellent.
We had a reservation for 8:00 and asked for a table outside when we checked in. We were put on waiting list and we were seated about 20 minutes later! Ashley was our waitress. Beautiful evening with wonderful food and service! Thanks!
Always love going here when we go to the Lake of the Ozarks. Excellent food, great atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone!
Had a great table in a quiet corner and a view of the lake at sunset.
Love this place. Great food, decent pricing for a casual finer dining experience. Will be back.
you should have adjustable shades so that people seated facing west after about 6:00pm don't have to wear sunglasses to read the menu...
(The sun directly in your eyes is bothersome)
Great, fast service! Beautiful scenic views. We’ll definitely come again!
Had great friendly service and loved our waitress Heather Shaw
We are at baxter's on vacation and it was by far the best dining experience we had while visiting the ozarks. The food was outstanding and service was impeccable! Not a bad thing to say about our visit. If we visit the area again we will for sure come back.
We love Baxter’s! It’s become an every year tradition for us to have dinner there while visiting Lake of the Ozarks on vacation. Fantastic service. Awesome food (even for our vegetarians)! Great views!
Great place, love everything about it!
Baxters is always phenomenal. We must eat here every time we are in town. Get a reservation- enjoy the food and excellent service - you won’t regret it.
Wonderful food and service. We’ll be back again!
Hate typing and long winded reviews , so at the risk of skipping the details I will only say everything was perfect. Couldn't be better.
This was our second visit to Baxter's in a week, and it was wonderful, as always. We went on July 4, and were able to stay to watch the fireworks. It was a lovely meal in a lovely setting with wonderful friends--you can't top that!
Wonderful anniversary dinner for my husband and I! We had drinks, appetizers, salad, entrée and desserts. Everything was fabulous to go along with outstanding service!
Good food. Good Service. Good view. Menu probably could use some updating. But overall a well managed restaurant
Their meals never disappoint! We love their baked potato soup. My husband had the sea bass which was delicious and I had the pasta carbonara which was also delicious. We go every year for our anniversary and they always make it special.
As always, Baxter's was amazing! We already have reservations for dinner again this week!!
Food and service was great.
Excellent view. Food was great and server very friendly!
Fabulous dinner with friends for a weekend getaway! Great food and service! Views are nice!
Perfect and wonderful as always!
First of all, our server, Sarah, is always wonderful! She defines the term “service with a smile.” Impeccable and always noting when glasses need refilling, etc.
Our meal was superb. The special of Mahi Mahi and the cedar-planked salmon were wonderful. We are never disappointed and always look forward to dining at Baxters when we come down to our lake home.
Best restaurant on the lake with the added perk of great views!!
We’ve always loved Baxter’s! This was a horrible experience! Not sure what is happening!! The server was rude, the salad was soggy, it had been dressed for hours so it was just limp and slimy! I had the chicken Carbonara and it was flavorless and horrible! I took 2 bites that was it! Server wanted to know if I wanted a box and I said no she took the full plate of pasta no questions asked! My husband had the steak burger and it was dry and nothing but an expensive hamburger!! On top of all of that it was hot, loud and We paid $70 for a horrible meal!
We arrived 15 minutes early for our Thursday evening 6:30 dinner reservation. Management was pretentiously rude when I asked for a table with a view of the lake, informing me that they take table reservations not location reservations. We were escorted to the bar to await a table. We ordered cocktails and when I suggested that my tequila sunrise had not been prepared properly the bar waitress immediately discounted my comment and didn't offer any resolution. When our table was ready she preferred we pay our bar bill at the bar instead of transferring it to the dinner table. It was an extremely warm evening and the AC in the restaurant was not sufficient to cool the restaurant. A table of 8 decided not to stay and brave the heat. Our dinner waitress was wonderful. She immediately offered to repair my cocktail and was wonderfully attentive. I received my seared Ahi Tuna with a blue plastic tie on top and immediately returned it. It was replaced with an explanation that the fish comes wrapped in ties. My question is why was it present after being cooked and plated? We didn't stay for dessert! Disappointed! Talk is Baxter's is good for Happy Hour.
We had a great meal as usual. Second time though that we indicated a birthday visit and no comp dessert, both times. Guess they don’t do that any more.
