After seeing an ad on Facebook for a special $5 burger served during happy hour, we decided to swing by after work. We scored the last table top in the bar and the place was humming. Side note: My husband said, "This place is full of old people, I guess they're the only ones who are still around the lake... More

Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant, The food and service is amazing, the staff are so friendly and the view of the lake is outstanding, they have indoor and out door dining. You may want to stay inside during the summer until the sun sets, but the environment is very nice. They have a great happy hour... More

We usually sit in the bar with The Dylan Morgan. This is a great place to grab a drink and an appetizer. It is fine dining if you want to leave the bar. If you like good treatment from the bartenders, this place is a good choice!

Baxter's did not disappoint. Our dinner was the highlight of our trip. Crabcake appetizer was excellent, as were the steaks and the Mahi-Mahi. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. They have interesting bar drinks. Beautiful views of the lake. Definitely worth the price.

My wife and I, along with many of our friends, have dined at Baxter's a dozen times or more in recent years and it has become one of our go to spots at the lake. The Lake is known for a lot of overpriced restaurants that offer very mediocre food--Baxter's is a wonderful exception to that rule! It is a... More

This place is busy all of the time. Fine dining establishment but the food quality is not worth the inflated prices. Romantic, not for kids, older crowd.

We enjoyed our food and the atmosphere tonight! We all liked our selections and felt they were nice portions. Our service was sadly not to the same standards as everything else. Our server seemed to give the impression he did not have time for us. We had to ask for refills on drinks and our food did not seem to... More

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.
