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 Happy Hour”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Wonderful food and attentive staff. Fabulous view of the lake and one of the best bars and happy hours. Ted and all the staff are great--unquestionably the best bartenders, led by Bernie in the entire lake area!

“Saturday night out with the family”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

First time to Baxter's and probably the last. The Filet Mignon that I ordered was at best closer to a breakfast steak in size and taste. Expressed my displeasure with the quality of food to the waiter and he sincerely apologized and said he would let the cook know. My daughter-in-law ordered "fresh' fish and said it tasted like something that had been frozen and thawed several times before actually being cooked--not good. Very disappointing experience. Definitely not worth the price.

Beautiful views but food is average. Swordfish sandwich was NOT good - would not order again. French fries not very good either.

“A+ view, c- service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch on a saturday and sat outside. The view was
Incredible! Service was slow. The bartender (who was fabulous!) was
Also our server so he was
Pulling double duty and just running ragged. Food was good, at best. Not anything to write home about. But if you want to go for a cocktail and sit outside-this is the place. They even have a mouthwash dispenser in the bathroom!

“Good food-good view-awful attitudes”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The food is very good with a slight higher than average cost. Nice atmosphere with a fabulous view! But the attitudes! Had a server roll her eyes at us because we wanted another drink before we ordered. They want to turn those tables so eat fast! We were actually told we had to leave our table because they had a reservation. I was still chewing my last bite of my meal. And it wasnt asked nicely either....Apparently they needed our table and not one of the other 4 or 5 empty ones around us! Manager very rude. We live here and used to send our clients there but no more. Plenty of nice places to eat at Lake of the Ozarks
