About
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

I’ve been to steakhouses in much larger cities and paid much more for steaks half as good. Easily one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. And at $27.99 including a side and salad, probably one of the most affordable!

The steaks were tender and juicy and cooked perfectly. Kentucky Mule cocktails were especially enjoyable. The decor throughout contributed to the serene and relaxing atmosphere looking over the lake from a vantage point above the shoreline.

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.
