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.

Beautiful view of the lake. The food was fine. The waiter was disappointing. He didn't look at us while talking to us. He was rather inattentive. We waited 10 minutes after our dishes were cleared for the check. I won't go back.

I enjoy their meat, however, I admit it - I like my vegetables cooked until tender - I do not like my green beans half raw when I bite into them. They have a beautiful dining room, but in the evening when the sun goes down, it is hard to see/read your menu or see your food. I would like... More

I have been to Baxter's many times--for a birthday dinner, just drinks, lunch, and dinner. First of all, ask for a table by the windows. The 14-mile view of Lake of the Ozarks is amazing, especially around sunset! The food is fresh and tasty, and not as expensive as you might think. Service is fast and friendly. And, the gooey...

We never get tired of the view, especially at sunset. But, without great food and service, a good view is not enough. Fortunately, you get all three here. Usually I will try some of their excellent seafood, and did so with an interesting appetizer that had several items I had never experienced before. I am not a gourmand and don't... More

we went here as it was one of the top rated places and it did not disappoint. The black bean soup was delicious the ribs tender and juicy and our service was wonderful. Totally recommend this restaurant when you get here.

We dined here with friends to enjoy a night out. I had the cedar plank salmon and my wife had the blackened scallops. Both were very good. The service was excellent and we had a great time. The view of the lake is a nice backdrop. The place was packed so make sure you have reservations if you arrive after... More

Went to Baxter's on a tip from the concierge at Lodge of Four Seasons only to find out later that the same company owns both the hotel and this restaurant. The views of the lake are amazing and that was the best part of the dinner. Service was average and the food was also. Nothing to brag about. The restaurant... More

I went for lunch with my boyfriend, I had been there for dinner and it was just fine so we wanted to try lunch. The service was great, our server was knowledgeable and friendly. She was a tall auburn haired girl. The view is great and the booths are comfy. However, the mimosa was horrifically overpriced for the cheap champagne... More
