Great meal and service. We had a large group and they accommodated us. There is a private room although we didn't use it. They also were helpful toward the families that were in the restaurant.

Out with my boyfriend and another couple for supper. We were lucky enough to get seated outside. We had lovely weather that day, the food was excellent, and the drinks were good.

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.
