Winter Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks - Mardi Gras Lake Pub Crawl Weekend!

Image
  It's not quite time for your favorite waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks to open back up for our 2021 season (but opening day's not that far away either!) Still, there's an exciting annual event that is definitely worth heading to the lake area for, even if you can't get back to Backwater Jack's just yet. That event is the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl and this year, instead of just 1 day, it's 3 whole days long!   This extremely popular annual event is going to look a little bit different this year. It will, of course, still be an awesome party filled with amazing live music, fantastic drink specials, and tons of party people in masks and beads ready to have an unforgettable time.  Here are some of the important details to get you excited about the 2021 Lake Pub Crawl.  Lake Pub Crawl Passport 2021 As we mentioned earlier, what used to be a 1-day/night event will be an entire weekend extravaganza this year!

The next time someone asks you " What do you want for Christmas this year? " don't pass up the opportunity to tell them " A Lake of the Ozarks vacation near Backwater Jack's  in Osage Beach! " I mean, they asked, right? No need to be shy. Let them know what you truly want and there's a good chance you just might get it!  This time of year many of you may not have a trip to our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks at the top of your thoughts, but maybe you should. After all, the most exciting dates throughout the summer season always book up fast so it's not too early at all to reserve your favorite weekends.  Of course, the lake area has quite a few awesome things going on before Backwater Jack's opens back up next year too, so you might want to enjoy a getaway to our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront vacation rental house sooner than next spring. The "Cozy House", as we've lovingly named the rental property next

For example, Jack's Jumbo Jalapeno Poppers are hand-stuffed to nearly overflowing and we're willing to bet our Colossal Crab Rangoon are the largest ones you've ever sunk your teeth into!  Succulent Seafood Our menu is filled with all kinds of succulent seafood dishes for you to enjoy.

Some people think that "just a sandwich" means a light lunch item that will hold you over until a bigger meal at dinner. Well, the sandwiches we serve at Backwater Jack's  don't really qualify as a "light" lunch.  They are so hearty and satisfying, they're more than enough for a big dinner themselves!   The fact that they also come with one of our incredible side dishes means you just may need to ask for a doggy bag to take some leftovers home with you! Here's a closer look at the delicious variety of great big sandwiches we have to offer at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant .  Triple Decker BLT A toasted triple decker filled with peppered bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on wheat bread.  Classic Club Sandwich A toasted triple decker filled with turkey, peppered bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and American cheese on wheat bread.
