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 had a later lunch with a lakeside view, The buffalo chicken fingers were a very large portion and the service efficient and friendly. My only complaint was the waitress took about 5 minutes to visit our table for our order.

I've been here approximately a dozen times; I usually have a "lighter" meal. Their soups, offered in the cooler months,( of course), are house made and amazing. My all time favorites are the clam chowder, and the cream of onion...do not pass on these soups when they are the soup de jour !

My wife and I ate here for the first time and it failed to impress. The food was decent but you pay for more than decent food. I had a salad, steak and potato -- the steak was not a quality steak and it was overdone (I asked for medium and it had very little pink to it). The salad... More

Food is good. Atmosphere is fine but for a so called local hangout the staff is not very friendly. Poor selection of liquor.

This restaurant offers Lake View from every seat featuring wall to celiling glass windows. Also has an outdoor seating place. The food is superb! We are still dreaming about the cajun shrimp pasta dish. Great service, warm and inviting atmosphere, and excellant food.

We didn't have reservations on this busy Saturday night, but were seated within 45 minutes at a table with a view of the lake. The sea bass special was wonderful ! April provided us with attentive & friendly service. Bernie was a friendly bartender while we waited for our table. We left very satisfied because of great service, excellent food,... More
