Description: 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.

Good food and view, but we were sadly disappointed in the service we received. We went back to the bar area the next night to give them a second chance. Everyone can have a bad night, right? Unfortunately the unaccomodating attitude and borderline rude treatment of our group continued. We will not ever visit this restaurant again.

Great view of the Lake of the Ozarks from outside on the patio or from inside next to the windows. Menu a little confusing on which sides come with dinner entrees. Listed soup, salad, and a vegetable, but you only got soup or salad not both. Be sure you clarify. Food was good and service was adequate. May have to... More

This past summer I visited Baxters a couple more times. Had been here numerous times over the years since it opened at the lake. The atmosphere is good as the restaurant sits high atop a bluff by the lake. The view from restaurant is outstanding. Food is always good and the service is good too. This restaurant takes reservations and... More

We stayed at the Lake of the Ozarks for a week and this was our favorite dinner spot. We waitied about 10 minutes for a table, which we didnt mind because we wanted to sit outside. The view was AMAZING! The food selection is great. I had the blackened shrimp salad and my boyfriend had a steak with a couple... More

If you are looking for the best lake views the Ozarks has to offer this is the place. Baxter's sits on the bluffs overlooking a very busy channel in the Ozarks; and if you opt for the fantastic seating offered on the patio, you can hear the jet boats speeding down the lake up to a mile away. However, this... More

Two people recommended Baxters. It was a beautiful setting and we were seated with a view of the lake and bridge. Very nice. I ordered the chicken which was highly recommended by our server. It was ok. Nothing that really impressed me. My daughter ordered the burger and said it was fantastic. Our server did her job but never engaged... More

Nice lake view. I ordered the burger and it was dry with no internal flavor. It tasted like dry meatloaf. The roasted red bliss potatoes were at different stages of doneness. Some were raw and others were soft. Salads were large with a tablespoon of dressing. I went through 2 drink refills with my meal because everything was so dry.

Made reservations for our family, 6 adults and 4 boys under 8... We were taken into a private dining room just for us !! The whole evening was wonderful, the food, the service, the scenery. This was one of the best parts of our trip and we hope to be back...

The restaurant is located high above the lake so it has a great view. We went on a Saturday night and the service was extremely slow. They said they had a big group ahead of us. We got our salads right away but then waited at least an hour for the entree. I had a decent burger for $15 but... More
