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.

Great Sunset view on the lake. My husband had an 18oz bone in ribeye that melted in your mouth. Service was wonderful. Very attentive staff.

We arrived early evening to find out that everyone else did too. No big deal. We were told a 30 minute wait. OK, we will have a couple cold drinks. 35 minutes later we noticed that we had never heard anyone called in and started wondering if we had missed our call. I told the host we didn't hear anything...

We like Baxter's in several locations, but here in the Ozarks, the view is amazing. The menu changes and is different in each location, so I don't think I have ever ordered the same thing twice and everything I have ordered is great! Usually we do dinner at Baxter's, but today, it was lunch and as always, very good! Great... More

The view while dining was incredible. The food was nothing impressive for what we paid for it. The beef filet was delicious; however, the vegetables, soup, and salads had zero flavor.

I got the email asking how we rang in the new year here in Illinois. We started out New Years Eve early at Baxters with, I believe, Elle M, taking care of our group of 7. Great service and great food. THANK YOU, BAXTERS for helping us finish off 2014 on a good note.

This has become our favorite place to eat at the Lake. It is smoke free, they use only the finest, freshest ingredients and offer gluten-free and vegetarian fare. My husband loves their steaks and I love their cedar-plank salmon and bacon-wrapped 5 oz pork loins. Desserts are heavenly! Oh, did I mention the view - STUNNING! Service is very good.... More

My husband and I enjoyed our dining experience at Baxter's at sunset after spending a few hours at nearby Shawnee Bluff Winery. The atmosphere is upscale, very warm and inviting, with a great view of the Lake from every seating advantage if you arrive before dark. We elected to eat in the bar so service was good. We enjoyed calamari... More

You really need to eat here during the day, it isn't the same at night as the lakeview is lost and the restaurant seems to get chilly very quickly. The food is good, and the prices are reasonable when you get a good view to enjoy with the meal.
