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.

“Nice place but can be better”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Nice place, ..the food isn't bad, but its a bit more pricey. The manager was kinda rude.

We got a call earlier that day to confirm our reservation [OK, I understand that], so we came about 15 min earlier to help them out. There was a table open, but when I asked the manager about it was rude that "you are early ..we will sit you at your time" ...that table was empty when we finally got seated ...and was empty for another 10 min.

The kicker it was the same type of table .... (the 4 internal half benches),

“Wonderful view and food.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Baxter's proved to be a good lunch choice. The loaded potato soup was delicious. My husband and I each had a bowl of soup and shared a spinach salad, which proved to be the perfect amount of food. And as everyone has pointed out, it would be impossible to have a more impressive view! We certainly recommend Baxter's.

“Great Lunch with View”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

We stopped for lunch while visiting Lake Ozark. Food was great and view wonderful from outside patio. There was a light rain while we were there, but the patio was covered so did not have to move. Service was slow, but we were OK with that seeing we were not in hurry. My friend had a salad and I had the grilled shrimp appetizer; both were excellent. If looking for a relaxing fine dining experience, I would recommend Baxter.

“Food was excellent and view even better.”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

The menu has a good variety. Specials are available. They offer everything from meatloaf to prime rib. Also several different potato choices from the usual baked or French fries. Last time I had the prime rib and it was as good as it looked-delicious. Prices are reasonable for what I term an upscale atmosphere.
