The Best Daily Food & Drink Specials at the Lake of the Ozarks

Most people spend their life "working for the weekend," but here at Backwater Jack's in Osage Beach, we strive to make our weekdays every bit as awesome as our weekends. The kitchens and bars are open 7 days a week, as is that awesome pool, and our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks features incredible live music on multiple evenings. 

To make the weekdays a bit more special for all of our wonderful diners and drinkers, we also offer daily specials that will make you want to spend nearly every day getting back to Backwater Jack's! Check out what we've got waiting for you every single week throughout the season. 

While Sunday is still technically a part of the weekend, most people spend that day chilling out and winding down from a weekend full of partying. (Or recovering from that party weekend!) Either way you're spending your Sunday, we let you pair it with discounts on Bloody Mary's and Mimosas.
