Walked in to Baxter's Lakeside Grille, no one was at the door to great us, so we ventured into the bar/seating area to peek about, see the deck and decide on inside vs. outside dining. A waiter came by and said it was windy and...More

Food was good. Service was good, not super quick but it was also a busy day. Was there for lunch. Sat next to window with lake view. Even with a crowded restaurant didn't seem loud, was easy to visit across the table.

Great ribs, fish, salad, anything you order will be good but it is rather expensive and they will NOT eat you until your entire party has arrived....can be awkward.....great view, not handicap friendly

Great food but a little overpriced. Great view also. JB Hooks is next door. But I recommend this place over that one.

I had a bartender as the waiter, he took considerable time to keep up on our table. The steak was ok, nothing great but there are worse in the area.

Just stopped in for a couple drinks and appetizers and really enjoyed it. We had the calamari and mussels and both were very well done. We are here for the week and will make it a point to stop in again.

Hi! How did your management decide whether they should mount a mouthwash dispenser in a restroom or not? Does this dispenser really improve your customer services? why do you think other restaurants still don't have them? Thank you!

Although I don't use it I'm sure some customers do appreciate it. It really isn't any different than when restaurant attendants in big cities provide the same. Mouthwash, hairspray, make up etc.

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.
