The waitress seated us at the perfect area to watch what was one of the most gorgeous sunsets ever. The wait staff could not have been better. The food and drinks were delicious, but a bit pricey, but was O.K. for special occasions.

We went in for the Happy Hour Appetizers. We all ordered something different from the buy one, get one menu and added a side salad and it was more than enough since we are all retired. I live the crab cakes and my husband likes the chipotle fried shrimp. Our friends will get the muscles, since they are from the... More

This was my second visit to Baxter's for an annual company meeting. I remember the food being very good on the first visit, but this was exceptional. We were a very large group seated at different tables so we were not waiting on one staff member to serve us. Our table ordered spinach artichoke dip, calamari and seared tuna appetizers.... More

Visited Baxters with some friends at the lake. I had a steak and baked potato. Steak was cooked perfectly and tasted great with little to no fat or gristle. Ordered a Basil Haydens whiskey to go with my steak and was shocked when I got the bill to find one glass of whiskey was $12. I can get a bottle... More

After seeing an ad on Facebook for a special $5 burger served during happy hour, we decided to swing by after work. We scored the last table top in the bar and the place was humming. Side note: My husband said, "This place is full of old people, I guess they're the only ones who are still around the lake... More

Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant, The food and service is amazing, the staff are so friendly and the view of the lake is outstanding, they have indoor and out door dining. You may want to stay inside during the summer until the sun sets, but the environment is very nice. They have a great happy hour... More

They let my wife ion well before they opened Sunday morning and gave her my wallet. Not a penny was missing. This says a lot... 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.
