We had a great view of the Lake of the Ozarks. Appetizers at happy hour were buy one get one free and were delicious, especially the grouper. Happy hour drink specials were also reasonable. Regular dinner meals were a bit pricey but I guess you are paying for the view.

We come here several times a year. The view is quite breathtaking. The patio is almost perfect. We recommend buying a bottle of champagne and making your own mimosas. Amazing! The Cajun shrimp pasta is one of the best menu items. They also have a Cajun sirloin... Highly recommend.

The food and the atmosphere is wonderful. The fish was done to perfection and tasty. Watching the sunset over the lake a real bonus. The summer is gone and the waitstaff is down but you would never know it. They hustled to keep everyone happy. Good job !

Great view of the lake makes eating outside on a beautiful day even better as we ate a nice lunch of salads. The fried chichen salad had great moist chichen. The steak salad was good too. Nice staff too. Don't eat inside if the. Weather is good

Food is on the higher prices side but the burgers were on of the best I've had in awhile. Service was a little slow, but very polite and pleasant. It was a busy night with one hour type waits, so not surprised of the delayed service. Will try again on a slower night.

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.
