Love this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Great salads for lunch. Steak and drinks for dinner. Love the atmosphere and the views of the lake.

We eat a Baxter's regularly and I don't think there is a better place to eat at the Lake, if you don't mind paying the price for it. The steak is always spot on, and service is great.

Classy place with great food and the best views of Lake of the Ozarks. We both had 8 oz filets that were as good as we have ever had. Attentive service. Great food from beginning to end.

This was our second time eating here. The food once again was delicious, and our server Brittini was a lot of fun. She took our picture, and brought us a free dessert to celebrate our anniversary. The only restaurant we have visited twice.

The food was excellent as well as the service. Steak was so tender you could eat it with a fork. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I ate at Baxter’s to celebrate our anniversary. Wait staff were great - friendly and professional. We ordered steaks, which were cooked to perfection. We’ll be back.

I think anything would be appropriate except swimwear! Even though you're at the lake, this is not a lake/dock type restaurant.

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.
