Although we live at the lake we had never been to Baxter's. What a delight, the staff is great, our food was served quickly and our waiter (Jessie) was very attentive. In fact, the whole staff pitches in to help deliver food and make sure...More

We had high expectations based on the good reviews. We also frequent JB Hooks, which is outstanding, so we expected it to be on par with them. The food was just ok, our sides were cold, and the steak was a bit dry. It definitely...More

Baxter's is an exceptional dining experience. A better mouse trap was truly built when this restaurant was opened! The menu is large and we have always had excellent meals no matter what we have ordered. Have truly enjoyed the salmon, ahi tuna and trout. Steaks...More

I highly recommend Baxter's for their food and dessert! You cannot beat the gooey butter cake with cinnamon ice cream.

Although I don't use it I'm sure some customers do appreciate it. It really isn't any different than when restaurant attendants in big cities provide the same. Mouthwash, hairspray, make up etc.

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.
