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.

The food is high priced, but good. Our waiter tried to rush us out during our anniversary dinner. It does offer a nice view of the Lake, but can feel a little cramped.

My family visited the Ozarks in June for a vacation, and I called Baxter's for reservations for Father's Day. It was, by far, the BEST filet mignon that I've ever had! The atmosphere was fantastic, service was excellent, and the food was amazing. We were seated by a window, which overlooked the lake. What a gorgeous view! I highly recommend... More

Great food and beautiful view of the lake! I had Pacific Rim Pasta with shrimp and it was delicious, but everything I've tried in past visits has been awesome.

Baxter's was suggested by my sister and brother in law. They've eaten at Baxter's 3x's. Appetizer-Crab cakes. Potato soup with soft warm bread/butter. Not long after, both of our entrees arrived. My husband had a Sirloin burger, no hamburger!! it was moist and smelled like a steak. My entree was, Shrimp/Andouille Pasta. OMG, their portions are generous. The views aren't... More

One server for most of the restaurant on a Friday is not good. Slow service, but food was good. Reasonable wine and food prices, it a bit slow with the service. Recommend if visiting Lake Ozarks.

We have been dining at Baxter's since the day they opened and Love it! The food never disappoints. Chef Cory is creative with the nightly specials, they are delicious and the portions are large. One of the best happy hours at the lake. I need to mention the employees, from the moment you walk thru the door you're greeted with... More

Great view, family/child friendly staff. We started with the Calamari which had a light breading, cooked to perfection. The tomato slices in the Caprese salad were large, ripe and tasty. Greens in the salads were fresh. Entrees included Grilled Pork Loin, Sea Bass and Cajun Shrimp Pasta. All of the food was excellent and presented nicely. Our family had a... More

Just visited this restaurant less than a week ago. We had heard from someone at our resort that the restaurant is a fun place to go out drinking, but we found out the food was absolutely fabulous. I had the chicken and it came with broccoli, mashed potatoes, and a salad. Everything was really good and just the right amount... More
