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.

I travel through Missouri quite a bit on business. When I am at the Lake of the Ozark's I like to eat here at Baxter's. The seafood is ALWAYS fresh & that's a bonus in the middle of the US! The steaks are delicious. The service is impeccable. All this with a beautiful view! I highly recommend!

What a home run. Went with great friends, and each of our meals was absolutely delicious. The baked potato soup was silky and delicious as well. And the ooey gooey butter cake was a burst of sensational favors. One of the best non-chocolate desserts we've ever shared. Finally, the ambience was great, with nice lake views. Our server Heather was... More

If you enjoy exotic foods with sauces at high prices, this is your restaurant. I enjoyed the sandwich but I like avocado. Better try a barbecue place.

Eat here a lot as the food is consistently great and service is always very good as well, regardless if you sit at bar or tables. It is a tad pricy, but they have Happy Hour deals and you get what you pay for here....Great Food, Good Fast Service. Go to spot at the lake. Kids love the Cajun Pasta,... More

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
