An authentic American restaurant with a great bar - that's the idea behind Baxter's. We're perfect for just about any dining occasion or gathering that calls for great food, warm, personal service and an
inviting, casual atmosphere. Our classic American restaurant builds on the rich history and tradition
the Lake Area is known for. We use only the finest, freshest ingredients, coupled with personal service and warm, inviting surroundings. We're happy to bring this dining experience to the Lake of the Ozarks. Baxter's is the perfect place for a business or casual lunch, a special evening out, a family get together after a long day on the Lake, or 'just
because.' We can accommodate most any group from an intimate dinner for two to a business or family party in our private dining room. And don't forget our classic American bar, one of the Lake's great places to meet friends and family.

The service, the atmosphere and above all else the food were all excellent. I can’t say enough about our waitress who was patient with the young just a outstanding young lady. We had adults and children and everybody was treated equally and with their wishes in mind. Baxters is definitely a go to for a excellent experience!

We will definitely go back on another occasion.

Both of us had a filet and scallops. The meals were presented beautifully and were absolutely delicious! We were celebrating my birthday - our picture was taken and a print given to us, and we received a complimentary piece of cheesecake complete with a candle. Baxter’s is one of our most favorite restaurants.

We had dined at Baxter's before for lunch, family in town from Florida, reviewed the menu
and wine list on line, looked outstanding, AND IT WAS. We were given a table lakeside, the
food, wine and service were outstanding and we topped it off with the gooey butter cake for
dessert. Outstanding night.

Great food as always. It’s hard to choose what to eat because everything is excellent. They have great sea food like their Chilean Sea Bass, and their steaks are out of this world. Then there’s the grilled chicken. Wow! You can’t go wrong.

It was such a surprise that they took our picture for our anniversary and gave it to us for free. They also gave us a delicious piece of cheese cake.

Service was great. They never brought out the next course until we were finished with the previous one. Very attentive. Excellent food.

First time I had “steak burger”. Was average, meat was overground. Would not recommend steak burger. Salmon, steaks and ribs have been very good.

We have been to Baxters several times. It is one of our favorites at the lake. The food and service are always good. Even on holiday weekends the service and food is good. Cedar Plank Salmon is the best at the lake. Prices are also reasonable.

We've been going to Baxter's for years and have celebrated 3-4 birthdays there. It's easily the best restaurant at Lake Ozark. The food is every bit as good as the best restaurants in St. Louis or Kansas City. Highly recommended for birthdays and anniversaries while you're at the lake.

They have the best view in my opinion. They even have magnetic drawing pads for kids! It was Memorial Day weekend so I knew there would be drawbacks, the noise level was a bit high and my steak was over cooked. However, the waiter was prompt to resolve the later, so overall, I am satisfied and will dine here again

We went on our 10 year wedding anniversary. Baxter’s called me the day of to inform us that they would like us to have a lake view table for our anniversary. How incredible nice was that?!?!? Everyone from the hostess, bartenders, and wait staff were welcoming, nice and genuine. We just adore Baxter’s each time we go. Thank you for a great evening and the food is beyond delicious!

I love going to Baxters when I'm vacationing at the Lake. I usually eat dinner there, but this time we chose lunch for our schedule ....The food took an unusually long time , I don't know if the kitchen was slow, but our server did a great job easing the wait....the view was amazing and we will go back.

We were in town for 2 nights, we ate at Baxters the first night in town, the food, the view and the staff was so good, I got us reservations on Open Table the following night and mentioned in the comments that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The hostess went out of her way to get us a great table, we had a great server and they made our anniversary memorable. I have been in the hospitality industry for 20 years and both of our visits were outstanding, one of the best overall staffs I have seen.
