Baxter's Lakeside Grille Ratings and Reviews
The food was delicious and the view was beautiful. The lighting and ambiance was perfect. I was a little disappointed that we had to wait about 15, 20 minutes to get sat even though I had a reservation but that wasn't a big deal. I was also very disappointed that with a reservation They sat us at a corner table without view of the water and there were plenty of open tables with the view. We asked to be moved to a table next to the glass and they said those were for reservation only. I told them I had a reservation for over a month and they moved us to a booth with a way better view but still not the unblocked view we requested. Besides those 2 little hiccups everything was great and I would definitely go back again and maybe be a little more clear when I make my reservation.
We have eaten at Baxter's numerous times and found it fantastic! THis particular evening was
was not pleasant. THere was a party of 70 people that were extremely loud and we were seated right in the middle of them. It was unfortunate that we could not even carry on a conversation with a relative that we had not seen for 8 years!
I feel possibly better thought should go into the seating of those around such a large party or else let them know that they will have a great deal of loud conversation around them possibly.
We love Baxter's and the food! Just very unfortunate we were competing with 70 others!
Excellent food and service at Baxter's. Our group of 4 people shared the calamari appetizer and it was more than enough for all of us. Upgraded to a Wedge Salad - plenty of dressing and flavorful. Three of us had the evening's dinner special - halibut with shrimp in a white wine and prosciutto sauce; our fourth had tilapia. Entrees were excellent.
Arrived at the restaurant a few minutes early and went to the bar for a drink while we waited for our table. The bar was packed! It's a very popular place on a Friday evening in the summer.
Would highly recommend Baxter's Lakeside Grille.
Reservation for seven with one couple celebrating their wedding anniversary. The food was very good and the service was outstanding! They took a picture of our anniversary couple and presented it to them in an elegant Baxter's pic folder which made the evening even more special! We live the scenic view and the best sunsets the lake area can offer are here at Baxter's! Highly recommend!
Food and service were great as usual. It was very busy and we did not get seated until about 20 minutes after our reservation. The owner kept apologizing and purchased us both a cocktail for having to wait. When we were done eating, expecting the check, the waiter brought us a complimentary dessert as well. We were fine waiting but appreciate the courtesy and service.
Wonderful food. Wonderful view. Wonderful service. Wonderful server...April. Wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. ..complete with cheesecake and a darling photo of us.
We have been going to Baxter's for years, and will continue to do so.
Baxters was great. We had 2 steaks and the salmon, wine and the dessert platter. It was excellent. Prices are what you would expect for the food and service. View is unbelievable for Lake of the Ozarks. We will be back for sure.
Amazing food! The scallops were perfect in a cream champagne sauce, delicate and not overpowering! Probably some of the best scallops I have ever had the pleasure of eating! Scenery and sunset were beautiful, we celebrated two birthdays and were given an amazing cheesecake dessert! Great staff and service as well.
We called for a reservation shortly before arriving on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. When we arrived, we asked to be seated outside so we could watch the sunset. The host was very nice and accommodating. He suggested we have a drink in the bar, and before we could finish our drinks, he seated us at a table outside, right by the lake, and we saw an amazing sunset. We had the BAXTER’S CHIPOTLE SHRIMP to start. They were fantastic. Cooked perfectly. Nicely fried but still juicy inside. For our entree we had the BAXTER’S DUO which was sea scallops and steak. Both were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. The serving was large enough to split with my dining companion. I was so pleased with the service and getting to watch the sunset that the food really would not have mattered to me. What a wonderful night to have the best of all possible worlds. We will certainly be back to Baxter's and I would recommend it without hesitation.
Lake of the Ozarks is a vacation spot for us and we have a home nearby Baxter's. We frequent Baxter's because they provide a spectacular lake view, have very good food and great service. I highly recommend to everyone, you won't be disappointed!
Food was excellent. Some of the best scallops and steak I've had in the Midwest! Salmon was great as well. Service was a little slow. It was busy, since it was Mother's Day, but I felt we weren't a priority with our waitress. Overall, it was a great dinner!
Baxter's is always a place that we take out of town visitors as the view of the lake is panoramic and the food never disappoints! We went for Mother's Day and had a great meal!!! The specials are always interesting...my husband had mahi-mahi with shrimp scampi....it was delicious!
It's a very popular eatery at the Lake and whenever people ask us where to go to get a great meal, we tell them Baxter's!!!!
After making reservations we were not given a table by the window. Asking for a different table we were seated by the window then asked to move again because that table could not be used. Given a table yes by a window and a bend in the wall. Then the table we had just left someone was seated at. Felt like we were not important enough. Even changed servers. Carbonara tasted like old bacon left over from breakfast. Not a pleasant experience.
