A reliable place on the Lake. You can’t go terribly wrong with Baxter’s but the view far exceeds the quality of the food. Service is efficient, the menu extensive and the food acceptable. I ordered the meatloaf and have had better, but I enjoyed it.

Went to Baxter's with family for Labor Day. All meals were very tasty. However (and this is the first "negative" thing I've ever said about Baxters), I was disappointed in the serving size for the grilled salmon. I've ordered salmon in a variety of restaurants....More

We love eating here and thought it the best place to take our friends visiting from Africa. There are some interesting things on the menu and some specialties. It all makes for a delightful evening out.

Although I don't use it I'm sure some customers do appreciate it. It really isn't any different than when restaurant attendants in big cities provide the same. Mouthwash, hairspray, make up etc.

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.
