About Baxter's Lakeside Grille
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.

Baxter's Lakeside Grille Ratings and Reviews

We went for my husband's birthday on Saturday. We had a reservation and we were seated promptly. We have been there many times before and the service was somewhat lacking this time. It took quite a while to receive our drinks. In fact, we had our appetizer before our drinks came. The food was good but the menu is kind of limited. I would go more often if they changed their menu occasionally or at least had more daily specials. Food was good. It choices are limited.

We were visiting and dined later at night. We could not see the lake, so the view would have been fabulous earlier in the night, our fault! The food was just okay, not fabulous. It was our anniversary and they did not acknowledge it at all. Just an okay night, would try again in the summer for the view and maybe a more casual choice of dinner selection.

This was my 3rd trip to Baxter's Lakeside and we keep coming back for the food and the great service. If you only had time for one meal at the lake, I would make it a Baxter's experience. The food is served hot and they are very conscientious about the display of the food. The first 2 times I reserved through open table and the last time I made a call into the restaurant.

I love the energetic vibe in the bar! Bartenders and drinks were wow...dirty goose martini and a grey goose sea breeze. Dinner was delicious...filet and sea bass! They have a nice wine selection. We had a bottle of Rutherford's merlot. Can't wait to come back!!!

This is our go-to place at the lake. Food is always good, view is outstanding. It is always clean, attentive wait staff, great variety of food and drink choices. Great, comfortable activity level in bar and restaurant. Ted is always there to keep things running well and of high quality. Our favorite.

We made a reservation on Open Table because we were busy with tourist activities during the day. The restaurant called and left a voicemail to confirm our reservation, which we did not receive because we were busy with other things during the day. When we arrived (5 minutes early), we were told they had to "reset" our table because we hadn't returned their phone call. To me, this defeats the purpose of the restaurant participating in an online reservation system. We booked online because we did not have the ability to call on the phone. They were haughty and rude.
This continued on with the service from our waiter. When we asked questions about menu items or preparations, we got responses such as, "probably not" or "We don't do that". One small example was with two scoops of ice cream for three kids and asking about splitting that into three bowls. We were told they were not able to accommodate that request...

Have been to Baxters twice when visiting friends who have a condo at the lake. Both times the food was delicious and the service warm and friendly. We enjoyed our meals thoroughly--both times. Love that you take reservations. Makes a difference and when you pair that with offering nice food in a beautiful atmosphere--can't be beat at Lake of the Ozarks. It is a favorite.

Baxter's is consistently good! We had the filet and it was like butter, it was SO tender. We love the round tables that accommodate a larger party because it allows you able to visit better. Great view and always great service.

A group of us were at the lake for a conference and someone recommended Baxter's to us. I made a reservation for us and we were seated right on time. The waitress was very attentive and the service was excellent. The food was great! Each of our group loved their meals. I had the KC strip and it was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Made the trip to Baxters from Kansas City specifically because it's our favorite restraint. Celebrating a birthday, we made reservations ahead of time for a table with a perfect sunset view and that is exactly what we got. The food, as always, was spot on. The service was amazing (Thank you Elie!) Lastly, the view and the sunset were perfect. Thank you goes out to the staff at Baxter's who make this our favorite destination for a dining getaway.

Baxter's appeared to be the true example of fine dining at Lake of the Ozarks. The food was very good, the waitress pleasant and attentive and the overall appearance exceptional. Should we visit the area again we will definitely have dinner here again.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration girls night ! The food was delicious although the birthday girl wanted walleye and it was not available. She had the salmon instead and said it was very good. The wait staff was excellent and attentive but not overly so. The one complaint we have was the sun was right in 2 of the ladies eyes for almost the entire meal. They had to wear their sunglasses in order to look up. I know this restaurant is known for it's view but perhaps the tables could be reconfigured . Don't know the solution but it was annoying for them.

We really enjoyed Baxters. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. The hostess helped us get a table by the window so we could watch the sunset. We booked a table through OpenTable on our drive down to the lake and had no problem with the reservation. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We booked our reservations on open table ...
We booked our reservations on open table for the first time and everything went great. Our table was ready on time even on a Saturday night. We visit Baxter every time we are in town and can't say enough about the place. This is how things should work,make a reservation and go eat.
