The food was very good although my blackened shrimp salad was a little bit salty. The baked potato was delicious and enough for a meal on its own. The price was fair for what was provided in the service in the view of the lake...More

Went here for happy hour last night. But one get one free appetizers. Many drink specials depending on what you are looking for they have everything. Staff was consistently friendly and accommodating. One of the best views of the lake for outdoor dining

Stopped by without reservations about 5:30 on summer weeknight. Hostess graciously slipped us in --even managed a window seat! Enjoyed appetizer, salad, and entrees. Very large portions. Took food home. Friendly waitstaff.

They have the best selection of fish on the lake. They know how to prepare fish and not over cook the fish. They also have Berkshire pork which is a rare treat at restaurants and also well prepared. Too bad we were full and no...More

Hi! How did your management decide whether they should mount a mouthwash dispenser in a restroom or not? Does this dispenser really improve your customer services? why do you think other restaurants still don't have them? Thank you!

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.
