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.

I Love Baxters!

There's a lot of restaurants here, but this might be the best. Great food, the BEST burgers. Friendly servers, pleasant atmosphere, great views of the lake.

We've avoided going to this restaurant on our previous trips to the Ozarks because we were afraid it was too touristy. We thought it might be pricey and not worth the price. Boy, were we wrong. There were five of us and none of us had a thing to complain about. The food was delicious and the service was great.... More

This place is DELICIOUS for lunch! We stopped for a quick bite and were indulged with their wonderful french dip/ff and chicken sandwich! Best meal on the lake!

HAPPY HOUR. You know, buy one and get other free which brings everything down to reasonable. The appetizer grilled shrimp on a stick were great but I got three sticks of ten or thirty total? Sign me up again. And my wife's crab cakes were also delicious. That with a nice cold beer and the deck view on a beautiful... More

Awesome view and during happy hour it is bogo appetizers. A little expensive but very good food and a huge drink menu. Sit on the patio.

We had a late lunch on a Friday when the restaurant was rather quiet. We were seated in a corner table with amazing views of the lake. Our server was attentive and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend Baxter's for a great dining experience.

This was our second visit to Baxter's. We had to sit in the bar area during our first visit, because they were so busy. While the seats were not our favorite, the food was delicious. So, when our best friends moved to the Lake and told us they couldn't find an outstanding place to eat...we suggested we give Baxter's a... More
