Description: 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.

“Great place for gatherings!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Had dinner with 7 girlfriends and had a fabulous time! Great views of the lake at sundown and yummy food made for a stellar evening. Service was terrific as well; the only drawback was waiting twenty minutes for our 6:00pm reservation. Dress up or dress down, the restaurant fits for any occasion! (this was my second trip; the first was two years ago and the place is consistent).

“Average at best”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Polite server, but blah food. Ahi tuna better at Bonefish, the baked potato soup out-of-the-can taste, Cesar salad okay. I was expecting better from reading this place's reviews.

Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you're looking for a restaurant to go to while at the Ozarks...this is THE place to be. Relaxing, decently priced, and an amazing view. Food is great, service is exceptional, and friendly!

“Top notch experience”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Everything was perfect..from Amy our server, to the baked potatoe soup. House wine was even unusually good for a house. We'll definitely be back.
