The Irresistible Entrees From the Menu at Backwater Jack's

This week Backwater Jack's transitioned to our "after-season" schedule of being open Thursday-Sunday each week.

Sandwiches So Satisfying, You May Need a Doggy Bag!

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
