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.

Went to Baxter's on a tip from the concierge at Lodge of Four Seasons only to find out later that the same company owns both the hotel and this restaurant.

I went for lunch with my boyfriend, I had been there for dinner and it was just fine so we wanted to try lunch. The service was great, our server was knowledgeable and friendly. She was a tall auburn haired girl. The view is great and the booths are comfy. However, the mimosa was horrifically overpriced for the cheap champagne... More

I went here expecting a very good meal and i wasn't disappointed, although it didn't really dazzle me either. The food was very good and the service was on par. There's enough good things on the menu that I'd like to come back and try more.

We went here during their happy hour time and what a great special they do. For happy hour you can buy one get one free on appetizers, along with discounted drink specials. The appetizers we ordered were delicious and came out quickly. We sat by the water and it was a fantastic view. Since its winter there isn't anyone on... More

Nice atmosphere, great food and service. Had the duo which was scallops and a filet Mignon. Upgraded to the larger bone in filet and the meal was perfect. Be aware that in the off season they can close early so best to get there before 8 unless it's summer.

One of my favorite places to eat at the lake! The food is always good, great atmosphere, and wonderful service. My husband and I ordered the BBQ ribs. The meat just fell off the bone. They were delicious. The portions are large. We had enough left over for a couple more meals at home. The restaurant has a beautiful view... More

Beautiful sunsets, great staff (the bartenders Bernie, Marty, and Dylan are awesome) and they always have great, consistent food that does not have a huge price tag. Excellent job all around and one of my favorite places to dine in. Happy hour specials are also great. Also, great view of flat screens to watch the game.

This was our first time at Baxter's and it was very good. A lot of menu choices and great desserts too. The service was really attentive and we loved the lake views! We will be back.

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.
