Enjoyed summer sunset dining at Baxter's Lakeside Grille and we all agreed it was the best fine dining we enjoyed on the lake. Salad and entree portions were huge, so plan accordingly. Prices are reasonable. View is spectacular. Arrived early for our res (be sure to make a reservation), and enjoyed a drink in the bar and loved the view,... More

This place has a great view of the lake. We were originally sat inside, but asked to move outside, which they did. The server was really nice. I got the caprese salad first. I'm always looking for a great one, and this was pretty darn good. Tomatoes weren't overripe and the basil wasn't wilty. It was bigger than I has... More

The server and food were wonderful. We enjoyed a great view of the lake while eating. There was a good selection of entrees available. The prices were a bit higher but reasonable for the type and quality of the food.

My wife's trout and rice were great, but my $16 hamburger was a little dry, good but not great. My blue cheese and bacon potatoes we're not so good. View is wonderful, atmosphere and service superior.

We were very impressed with the dinner we had here on our anniversary. It was a Sunday night and we had not made reservations ahead of time. Therefore, we were told that we likely would not get a window or outdoor table. It didn't turn out to be an issue. We got seated within 15 minutes and while we didn't... 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.
