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.

“Our New Faorite Place at the Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

My wife and I went there to celebrate Mother's Day and our 30th Anniversary. Friends had taken us there as a thank-you previously. We were impressed and decided to go back. We were not disappointed! I had made the reservation online, noting the special occasion. The owner greeted us and wished us a Happy Anniversary; my wife didn't know I had mentioned that.
Our server, Ellie, was friendly and efficient. Midway through dinner she took our picture; we thought it was for their album. We were pleasantly surprised a few minutes later when she presented us with the photo in a little frame with anniversary greetings.
Try the crab cake appetizer-it's big enough for two. Lots of succulent crab meat, very little filler and lightly pan fried.
My wife had the prime rib eye steak. It was cooked to perfection (medium). At 14 ounces it was too much for one person, but she enjoyed the remainder at home the next day.
The sushi grade scallops are a real treat. These are pan seared and they are moist, tender and very, tasty.
As a topper to our evening, we were treated to a piece of excellent cheesecake, compliments of the house to commemorate our anniversary.
The view of the lake is spectacular, so ask for a table where you can see the view.

“Great views and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We really enjoyed the location right above the lake and the food was delicious. Same views as JB Hooks but nicer deck and less expensive food. Service was really good.

“Great Gluten-Free Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Trying to eat out gluten-free is always very challenging. Finding a restaurant that has gluten-free options is always great, but finding one that has a nice variety of great-tasting gluten-free options is beyond exciting to a person with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Baxter's has a great gluten-free menu. I tried the scallop option and it was excellent. My waiter was very helpful and knowledgable about gluten (which is not the case in many restaurants) and made sure I had a safe eating experience.
