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.

Food was outstanding, view is as good as JB Hooks, but the owner/host is a complete %&*^_+. No personality, no communication….he said we would wait for an hour for a seat and it was closer to 2.

I made reservations online and was met at the hostess station upon arrival by the manger who immediately informed me that they couldn't honor my reservation and had told the staff to call me (I was not called). The manager was terribly rude and could have used basic customer service training. No matter how good or bad the food is... More

Our meal was fabulous. I had the Baby back ribs, which were seasoned to perfection. The serves did everything possible to accommodate their customers. And, did I mention the view...a few miles of Lake of the Ozarks! If you are lucky enough to get a table to watch the sunset, I would suggest you do so. Beautiful view of an... More

We had a very tasy lunch at Baxter's sitting at a window table looking down over the lake - a great lunch and a beautiful view. We will definitely go back!

Good food! Great view! The past three times I've been there, I have made reservations. Even with reservations, we still have had to wait a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes for a table.

Able to make reservations…. Food is fabulous… view is incredible… service is impeccable! We have been before and I am sure we will return! Love everything about the place. The waiters and waitresses go out of their way to make sure everything is cooked to your liking. I had the grilled chicken and smashed potatoes and they were delicious as... More

We stopped in around 5:30 in evening and had a 25 minute wait for a table due to not making a reservation. Started with drinks in the bar which were Pinot Noir and a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout which both were phenomenal. Our table was ready as we finished the drinks. The transition to a table with lakeside views was... More
