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.

I lived at the Lake for nearly thirty years and moved away three years ago. Baxter's was my favorite restaurant then and our party chose it again last weekend when we visited the Lake. This is a beautiful restaurant. The atmosphere (lighting, tables, booths, interior and exterior decor) is great, the lobby is wonderful and the restrooms are clean and... More

Easy to find, but once you're inside, you sure don't feel like you're in the middle of everything! Great lake view, wide variety of menu options and pretty good food. Service seems a little spotty and could be improved, but everyone was certainly cordial and professional. Happy hour looked very popular as I walked through the bar, but must be... More

Call for an early reservation if you would like to sit by a window. Recently we were there and all 4 of us had a view. The menu selection is good, the food is presented well, the service is very friendly, and if you like lots of spices this is the place for you. Not too hot, mind you, just... More

We have been to Bentley's, Michael's, JB Hooks and other places at the lake, and THIS was my favorite. Great steak and all the sides/appetizers we had were delicious too! One word of warning, do NOT order the kids filet meal ($15, no salad!) for any child over about the age of 4! I think it was a 2 oz... More

Food is great, view is beautiful and is very crowded - popular place. Sit on the porch, it is a nice atmosphere right on the lake.

This is one of the few restaurants at the Lake that has it all! Spectacular view, great outside seating, wonderful happy hour with great prices on drinks and apps. No matter what you order for dinner it will be spectacular! This is one of my favorites at the lake.

We like Baxter's. The food is good, the prices are a tad high but not bad. Service is friendly. I wasn't thrilled with the salmon, but the shrimp cocktail and the butternut squash bisque were both amazing. A good, consistent restaurant with incredible lake views.

My partner and I were riding the great curvy roads of the Ozarks and looking for a nice lunch spot. The atmosphere is business casual and family friendly. He ordered the swordfish and fries for lunch and I ordered the special which was prime rib on a Hawaiian roll with a side salad and we were both very pleased!

We had a few cocktails on their outside deck and loved looking over the beautiful lake and scenery. Lemon Drop Martini was delicious. I had the scallops and the rest of my group had other fish entrees. We all were very satisfied. It was our first time there so our server was very helpful explaining the entrees.
