My wife and I arrived around 5 and were told we would have a short wait of 5-10 minutes. We sat at the bar for a short time, and within minutes, arrived at our table overlooking the lake sunset. Our server, Hanni, took great care...More

Four adults, all selected a different entree. All were delicious although the mahi mahi sandwich was a bit small! We called it a “fish stick on a bun”. That said, the food was good, view was pretty (even for February), and we would return.

The food was fabulous and the service was very good. Great atmosphere and a wonderful view. There in our party had Ribeye steaks and the fourth had the KC Strip. The steaks were done perfectly and the sides were scrumptious. We also had the crab...More

Baxter's is one of my wife and my favorite restaurant in the Lake Ozark area. The food, drinks, views and service is excellent. Can be crowded on weekends but still worth it.

We had a big family lunch at this restaurant. The food was delicious. I ordered the Tim's Salad. It was big and flavorful. The very large patio had lovely views of the lake. I wish the service would have been better, then I could have...More

And while the food was good, it wasn’t great. I went because I wanted Chilean bass and it was the only restaurant serving it. The fish was great but it was sauté in a bit to much oil. As in drowning. Sigh. I’d give it...More

This was the best lunch we've had in a long time. The service was great, we were 16 but they coped just fine and it was seriously great food. Of course the atmosphere and scenery are second to none being on the lake, but a...More

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.
