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.

“Birthday dinner overlooking the Lake!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

My wife's birthday choice for dinner, having dined here before. Reservations always a good deal, especially for the awesome view of the Lake from atop a cliff! Baxter's is very welcoming, great ambience, very good food and service and quick. My wife had scallops( "delicious"), and I had a sirloin (good). The prices? Well, if you choose a higher end restaurant, I guess you should expect to pay more!

“Consistently outstanding food and service. Great decor but as usual a wait even with a reservation”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Baxter's is consistently one of the best restaurants in the Lake area. The decor and view are great, but the food and service is what brings you back. Four of us had dinner Saturday pm. My wife said the meat loaf was outstanding. Two of us had the ribs which are very tender, fat free and meaty The fourth person had the Jerk chicken and it was good. All liked the salads, baked potatoes and rolls. As usual service excellent. Entrees are fairly priced. The only continuing issue is we had an 8:00 seating and sat down at 8:45. Always a great choice
