Description: An authentic American restaurant with a great bar … That’s the idea behind...
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.

Great experience until . . .

My son, his wife and I visited Baxter's to celebrate their birthdays. We had made reservations for outside, but requested an inside table with a view due to windy conditions when we arrived. We were easily accommodated. Our meal and service were excellent. As we finished our meal, we noticed... read more

Went here on a Friday evening. The only thing I can complain about is that although we made reservations and there was nobody waiting to be seated we had to wait 5 minutes or so for our table. The waitress was wonderful & attentive. The food was excellent. I love the baked potato soup. The view is to die for.

We have been there for company events as well as personal dining. The quality of service and meals has been wonderful. There is a great view of the lake, too. As a local it is one of our favorites.

After several days of golf with eight of my closest friends, it was good to escape fried stuff and sandwiches and have a real meal. Definitely an upscale spot overlooking the water at the Lake with dining both on a large patio or inside where we were seated. Friendly waitstaff were fairly attentive, and for a party of nine, served... More

Baxter's never fails to give the greatest service and consistently serves wonderful meals. From the incredible ribs to the awesome seafood dishes, it is by far the best!! You won't be disappointed!! I would call ahead for reservations as it is a huge favorite for many.

To start with, reservations are about a joke because the host only seats you when he feels like it. I believe a healthy tip when you check in is required to get a good table. The food can be pretty good, but last time we were there my wife any I felt ignored and was not really in the mood... More

My friend and I went out for his birthday to this restaurant on 4-29-2015. Being a Wednesday night, The restaurant was fairly occupied, we were seated quickly and opted to sit out on the patio.

Loved the food and it has a very nice view of the lake but at dinner time, the sun is in your eyes. Most of the tables will have the sun but I would eat there again.
