Been here numerous times and always quite pleased. Food always awesome, love the steadk sauce, and servers are always so welcoming and take care of their customers and make each visit feel like they are very special. Will continue to enjoy our night out at Baxters and would recommend to all.
Baxter’s never disappoints. It is our favorite dining spot at the lake.
From the welcome at the reception desk to the service at the table , can only be rated 5 stars. Friendly , courteous, welcoming .
The food is freshly prepared to your choice, and daily specials are wonderful and varied. The sea bass and trout were outstanding .
We can’t wait until our next visit to Osage Beach to enjoy another fine dining experience.
We eat at Baxters monthly and have never had anything but an excellent experience
Baxter’s has always been a favorite but it must have been a off night.
Or steaks just did not have the normal flavor or tenderness as usual.
The appetizer was just average but the bread oh so good !
Will definitely return!
Baxter’s made my wife and I’s anniversary a very special time. The food and staff were great!!!!
Always have a great experience at Baxter’s . Every trip we make to the lake, we live to come here for delicious food and beautiful atmosphere!
I’ve Been to Baxter’s several times, always great! It is one of our favorite places to eat. A little pricey if you are paying for a group.
We went for our 2 year wedding anniversary. We also had our newborn with us... however, she decided she wanted to join in the chatter and got fussy. I dont think anyone heard her, but if you were there, and you did, we apologize. Food was amazing. Our service was good... not great. We had to request a lot of stuff, i.e. refills, steak knife, napkins. They also took a complimentary photo for us and gave us the picture in a black packet with "Happy Anniversary 2018" written in it. Very sweet.
Despite being relatively busy on a weeknight, Baxter’s remained quiet enough to actually have a conversation. The food was excellent from a perfectly prepared halibut entree to delicious desserts. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The beautiful views contributed greatly to a wonderful experience.
Food and service was spot on!!
Very good food. Great table placement with lake view. Great night out.
The best at the lake.
It took forever to get food and drinks and we had 2 servers. My absolute only request was no sauce due to me having celiac disease and the main reason we picked this restaurant was they had a gluten free menu. After waiting over an hour for the food my steak came covered in sauce. They quickly fixed that by giving me an undercooked steak. I’ve never not tipped anywhere before but since the service was horrible and the food was subpar I could not bring myself to tip.
Third time to visit. Each time we have had to wipe the table off and after watching the bussers clean the tables we now understand why.
Got the special of the day. Halibut. Sorry to say it was EXTREMELY dry. Send almost half of it back on the plate. Nobody asked if there was anything wrong with it.
Overall a very nice place. First time was great but this time was very disappointing. Glass sit empty most of my meal. I asked for bread but never got it.
Great food and had a happy birthday and had great company
I used Open Table to make our reservation for three about an hour earlier and requested a window table. Two of us had been here before and we wanted to take our third friend for the first time. We were seated in a timely manner and our orders were taken promptly and the lake views were great. Being on a Sunday evening the restaurant was quiet and noise level very low which was great for us. We All ordered the 8 Oz. Filet and each was cooked just as requested. The sides were great and we splurged and ordered the gooey Carmel cake with the cinnamon ice cream. It was outstanding! I highly recommend it. I enjoyed a glass of a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with my meal as well. We had a great evening and will be back again. I always feel comfortable taking new and old friends to Baxter’s.
We visited for a birthday celebration. We were seated right on time and had a view of the lake that was amazing! We ordered a filet and the house special blue cheese potatoes along with a first time order of Cajun pasta. Talk about great!! Both dishes were winners! The steak prepared perfectly and so so tender!! And I would recommend the pasta to anyone! It was so flavorful and not too hot. This venue never disappoints!! Can’t wait to come back!
Our favorite spot for special occasions. We had a 6:15 reservation; waited 15 minutes for a table with a view which was worth it. On this night, there was a convention in town so service was extremely slow. It took an hour after seating before hot bread arrived. Although the main courses were delicious, they were not very hot; apparently they sat for a time after plating before being delivered to the table.
Beautiful view and excellent food’. The service was amazing as well! This is one you want to plan for! We will be back and bring friends!
Always a great experience. Wonderful staff and very well managed.
Enjoyed sharing beautiful experience with colleagues
Wonderful view, decent service, OK food. Decent value.
Service overall needs some work. Food was good and a beautiful setting and view is superb.
Great food unbelievable flavor quiet but lively for talking and romance take the chef's recommendation you will not regret it at all
As always our dining experience at Baxter’s was exceptional! We had a group of 14 and were accommodated with the private party room. Our waitress Brittany did an awesome job waiting on our party. Everyone raved about their food, the beautiful view, the bar area and their drinks. Baxter’s is definitely our choice for dining at beautiful Lake of the Ozarks👍🏻
Baxter’s has always been our special place to dine no mater if entertaining guests or having a quiet evening out.
The food was fantastic. My usually picky son shared my steak & he couldn't get enough. It was so flavorful & tender. We were looking for a nice place to celebrate my son's birthday & we chose the perfect spot. At the end of the meal, they brought him out a delicious piece of cheesecake and took his picture. They gave us a card with his picture in it to go as a keepsake! Very thoughtful. We live about 3 hours away but we were so impressed we plan on taking the long drive in the future just to eat there.
We celebrated our anniversary at your restaurant. The table was outstanding, food great, and our waitress was awesome.
didn't like the hostess telling us that someone was waiting for the table and we needed to leave We were only there 15 minutes after we finished paying the bill She could have asked us to move to the bar and comped the first drink for us moving
Great food and view. Service was average. Manager was very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely return.
They really took care of my wife and I for our anniversary. We will definitely be making this a new “regular” spot.
Excellent restaurant. Staff friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Food is always fantastic. Owner goes out of his way to take care of the customers. The staff goes above and beyond. Wonderful evening.
Been here many times and has never disappointed. Will definitely be back.
Baxter’s is the best restaurant at the Lake. It’s an absolute pleasure to dine there.
