Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Beautiful view of the lake, the food was delicious. A little on the high end price wise, but it is a resort area so probably within reason. The servers were very nice.

Baxter's should be the number one restaurant in Lake of the Ozarks. Fabulous view - but even without the view it would be fabulous. The wait staff was outstanding and so was the food. My husband and I had a special "tilapia topped with crab"...More

Service was good but food quality was a little disapointing. I was really hungry that day and didn't get that belly satisfaction.

We took a large group to eat lunch before we departed the lake area. We were easily accommodated. Every person enjoyed their plate and it was well worth the visit. The view of the lake was amazing

Along Bagnell Dam Blvd, this is one of the best fine dining establishments at the lake. It has to be with J.B. hooks and Bentley's just down the road, the competition is at their doorstep, all the better for you and me. Food and service...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.
