There are many great lunch selections, but one of my very favorites is the spinach salad with salmon. They put a different twist by adding walnuts and thin apple slices which is a wonderful... More

We did not get a table at the window but off to the side, so the view could have been better. Aside from that, our meals were delicious from salad to dessert. Our server Rachel was pleasant with the right amount of attentiveness. Would recommend.

The atmosphere is great. High ceiling gives an open and not cramped feeling. The food is excellent . I have been there for a 7:00 and a 4:00 reservation. I thought the food at 7:00 was the best. The service is good also. If you ask for a window table you will have a view of the Lake of the... 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.
