Randy's Frozen Custard

Reviewed By empire920 - Springfield

I was here to write a review for this place for a professional publication. They were busy but all I asked was for a recommendation of what I should try. The man was so rude to me. Even my husband was shocked.
Well I did. And I feel bad saying it but Andy's is better. I think Randy's is a favorite among locals because this is a long standing tradition. I get that. But Andy's just tastes better and ... I've never been treated rudely at Andy's ... EVER. No matter how busy they were.

Frozen custard if a popular lake thing and we like Andy's the best - the best thing on their menu is the Ozark turtle modeled after the old turtle candies - wonderful toasted pecans, hot caramel and hot fudge sauce all served over fresh frozen custard - you simply have to try one and you will be back for more

What a fabulous and exceptional staff!! We came in for bottomless mimosas on Easter Sunday, where we encountered a rather sparsely populated establishment (likely because of the deteriorating weather and in lieu of the holiday). Despite the slow day, the staff was so entertaining and all pitched in to give us the best experience possible. The food was terrific (try the glazed carrots and definitely those Rueben Eggrolls)!!! Willy, Ally, and Alyssa were just a riot of fun, professional service. We can't wait to come back!!!!

HalfSauced Barbeque

Reviewed By woody5048 - Girdwood, Alaska

We went on a Saturday evening about 7:15. Not too crowded and sat quickly. Nice family atmosphere. Waitress was nice. They were out of smoked and pulled chicken. They only cook so much, so go early or call ahead if you want something special. We shared the meat sampler with 2 sides. The ribs, brisket and pulled pork were very good. The burnt end were tough, but good flavor. Our concerns were we had to ask for tea refills and we've never been in a barbecue place where they didn't have hand wipes. We wouldn't hesitate to return to try the chicken (1/2 chicken for $11.45 with 2 sides)

This little place is unassuming but boy does it pack a punch. You can get breakfast and dinner anytime which worked great since my husband doesnt like breakfast food. We had a breakfast burrito, pecan pancakes, fried eggs and hamburger. Everything was enjoyable and the service was fast. We will definitely be back.

Nothing special...Servers were friendly but didn't know their menu at all. Food was typical and passable but definitely nothing to brag about.

After 3 attempts at visiting here, I think it's time to call it what it is and find another spot to try.

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.

I've been to Baxter's on a few occasions as part of a professional conference. However, after reading about their new vegetarian menu, I took my girlfriend and we enjoyed a wonderful meal together. One of the owners came and introduced herself to us, bought us a round, and we enjoyed a nice conversation.

I'm the vegetarian and can't fully express how grateful I am that a high quality establishment like Baxter's is dedicating a special menu for people like me. The options all looked great and my meal was excellent. My girlfriend's tilapia was perfectly blackened and delicious as well.

Baxter's undoubtedly is one of the very best places to eat at the Lake- incredible view, great food, wonderful people. We will be back!
