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.

Party of 10

Great round table for 10, views were spectacular and food was very good. Liquor service was not the fastest and caught our attention. That said, Baxters is a great choice for dinner.

As the main restaurant at Lodge of Four Seasons was closed for renovation, we took advantage of the shuttle to Baxter's. Glad we did. We were quickly seated, promptly greeted by our waitress, and on to our first round in a matter of about 90 seconds - kuddos Baxters!! For an appetizer we had the Calamari - very good -... More

It's worthwhile to call in advance to get a window table overlooking the lake, and try to go at sunset. The view faces southwest over the bagnell dam arm of the lake. There is an indoor restaurant and an outdoor patio, both with views. The food was fine. Steak was good with unusual potato options. House salad dressing is tasty.... More

Great restaurant, great views, food reasonable. Service was very good. We were there when there was a storm approaching up the lake and great views of the weather. The food was nothing super special but was good.

The prices are a little higher, but it is a very nice restaurant. The food is excellent. The gooey butter cake w/ cinnamon ice cream is AWESOME! A wonderful special occasion destination for a memorable night out.

The view from our table was excellent, along with the food and the wait staff. 100% all the way around.

Visited here on our honeymoon. Started out not very impressed (the house Riesling was disappointing while we waited for a table by the windows), but everything improved from there. Our table by the windows afforded a beautiful view of the Ozark sunset. Our Ceasar salads were very yummy. His steak, smashed potatoes & fresh snow peas were fantabulous. Her sea... More

Beautiful view of the lake. The food was fine. The waiter was disappointing. He didn't look at us while talking to us. He was rather inattentive. We waited 10 minutes after our dishes were cleared for the check. I won't go back.

I enjoy their meat, however, I admit it - I like my vegetables cooked until tender - I do not like my green beans half raw when I bite into them. They have a beautiful dining room, but in the evening when the sun goes down, it is hard to see/read your menu or see your food. I would like... More
