Celebrate National Shrimp Day This Raw Deal Thursday - May 10

May 10 is annually observed as National Shrimp Day, which is perfect this year because that happens to fall on one of our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant's Raw Deal Thursdays! You can join Backwater Jack's to celebrate this delicious seafood and get a great price on them while you're at it!  

Raw Deal Thursdays!
One of our most popular days of the week is Thursday, not because everyone is trying to get an early start on the weekend (although that's sometimes a great idea!) but rather because of the fact that Backwater Jack's hosts Raw Deal Thursdays every week.
