Nice, good music, great view, friendly staff. I had the lunch BLT with chicken it was good, the fries with it were great. My mom had the spinach salad with salmon, she loved it. I was worried it's off season at the lake but the food was fresh.

One of the absolute best dining room views of the Lake. Food is high-end but priced right. $16.99 is steep for a five shrimp shrimp cocktail. But I order it every time because it is worth every penny. Excellent steaks and seafood. Great bar area and lake view patio.

Having dinner on the deck was fantastic! The spinach and artichoke dip was good. The meal was good also. The atmosphere was the best though. Filling my drink (Water) could have been a little better, but definitely not horrible. Pet peeve of mine maybe.

We have eaten here in the spring, summer and fall and the view off the outside deck are phenomenal, especially at sunset! The food is equally good. The sausage, shrimp, peppers and linguine are my favorite. Generous helpings and piping hot. My wife got the pork chop and it was also very good.

The food was very good Might of given them 5 stars, but, They were out of walleye, and, then brought us the wrong soup because they were out of the soup we ordered. But, the server was very good and the food was good at a good price. Best restaurant we have tried in the Lake of the Ozarks. Will... More

Loved the food. Very solid lunch experience but the server broke the cardinal rule of waiting tables and let glasses get empty and forgot to refill one of our party's glasses despite filling everyone elses

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.
