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.

We enjoyed a late lunch here on a Thursday. We were seated at a wonderful table that overlooked the lake. The views here are amazing and you don't have to sit / eat outside to get them! Although they do have a patio if you like that sort of thing.The food was top notch. Service was a bit leisurely, but... More

I would make a trip back to Lake of the Ozarks just to eat this meal again! Beautiful restaurant on the lake, busy even on a Tuesday night, which lets you know they are doing something right! I had the filet and scallops duo...cooked to perfection and delicious! Partner had the salmon special which was also top-notch! Even the green... More

My husband and I shared a caprese salad and we each had a French onion soup. The salad had plenty of mozzarella cheese and beautiful large sliced tomatoes to get a bite of each in every bite along with a piece of basil with each bite. We each got three slices of tomatoes and mozzarella by sharing. Our French onion... More

Tried to make reservations and was told that I could make them for 4:30 or 9. Umm...no thanks. Was told that we could try and walk in, but if we came between 6-8 we would not get a table. Umm...ok. We showed up at 5:30 and got right in and sat on the patio. Beautiful view of the lake even... More

We waited 4.5 years to revisit Baxters and they did not disappoint. There was a wait and we requested a table outside that fell through due to the weather. However, the food, service and atmosphere was still very worth the wait. Dinner at Baxters was the only request of my 15 yr old and she left very satisfied. They also... More

Since my mom babysat my kids while I was at a meeting at the lake, we treated her to a nice dinner at Baxter's. Great view. We had the Ahi Tuna and the Portabella Mushroom salad as an appetizer (there is a fancy name for it but I can't remember what it was.) It was delicious. The salad was a... More

Went to Baxter's for a late lunch on an afternoon that I was working in the area. The waiter was very nice, but it took him a long time to get to me. I ordered a beer and a burger. The burger was clearly frozen which wouldn't be that big of a deal if I was at a less expensive... More

Their food is consistently good for a reasonable price. They have a great view of the lake. The service is very good and they pay attention to your needs and desires.

I called for a reservation and was told they only take them two hours out. We waited almost an hour for a table late on a Tuesday night, even though there were empty tables. My husband went to the bar to get drinks and waited 20 minutes to get served. After being seated and getting our drinks, our waitress disappeared.... More
