1. Cruising The Lake
The best part about summer at the Lake of the Ozarks is hitting the water. From Party Cove to fishing, there are many fun things to do around the Lake of the Ozarks. There's a reason why USA Today named our beautiful Lake the #1 Recreational Lake in the United States. The weather is finally heating up and we are seeing more and more boats cruising the Lake. While out on the Lake, don't forget to stop by Lake of the Ozarks' best waterfront bar and grill for lunch, or swing by at the end of the day to dance the night away!

2. Warm Weather
Of course, it wouldn't be the summer months without the beautiful warm weather. However, this year, at Backwater Jack's you can spend the day soaking up the sun in our brand new Lakeside pool at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our pool is on track to open up this summer, and we cannot wait to start enjoying it. The pool will have amazing views of the Lake and a swim up bar, so you won't even need to leave the pool to enjoy the best drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks.

3. The Best Live Music
Backwater Jack's is known for having the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks and this upcoming summer is going to be no different. We've already have had some amazing musicians already this spring, and we can't wait for all the great entertainment we have lined up this summer. Stay tuned to our social media channels to find out when all your favorite are coming to Lake of the Ozarks' favorite waterfront bar and grill.

4. Tasty Eats
From the best nachos at the Lake to our famous grouper fingers, we have something for everyone at Backwater Jack's. Whether you're looking to grab a quick bite before heading out on the water or needing to refuel after a long day, we have it all. In addition, we also have some of the best daily deals at the Lake of the Ozarks. During the peak season, you can enjoy Crabby Ol' Mondays, Tequila Tuesdays, Wine-O-Wednesdays, Raw Deal Thursdays, Steak Fridays and Super Sundays.

5. Favorite Frozen Drinks
While we may have the best frozen drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks, that's not where our drink menu ends. From our world-famous Pains to local favorite Lake water, we have some of the best drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks. Keep the party going all night long with our fully-stocked bar. Our talented bartenders can mix up nearly any drink you can think of.


We can't wait to see what this season will bring! With all the old favorites and our brand new Lakeside pool, it's going to be the best summer yet.
