A Countdown of the MANY Different Ways to Enjoy Backwater Jack's

We looked around and started counting the many different things to do, see, eat, and drink at Backwater Jack's in Osage Beach and... well... we had to stop or we'd still be counting! In addition to the fantastic food and drinks that our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant is known for, the experience and gorgeous lake view make your visit even better. 

Here's a look at some of the many, many reasons why people keep coming back to Backwater Jack's. 

Lots of Seating, Inside & Out
Okay, we didn't count every single seat. It's busy around here this time of year! Just know that there is plenty of seating to satisfy groups of all sizes. Inside the main restaurant, you can get out of the heat yet still enjoy our fantastic lake view through the big, scenic windows. There's also a great deck surrounding that area for seating as well. 

Toward the pool, we've got lots of covered tables and chairs set up for those of you that prefer to dine outdoors.…

Our Awesome Appetizers - the Mini-Meal Before the Meal!

Appetizers are meant to be a small something to eat to tide you over until the main meal arrives. At our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, the majority of our appetizers are hearty enough to be a meal all on their own! That is unless you're with a big group of people at Backwater Jack's that are all sharing the app. (But in that case, surely you'll be ordering more than just one!)

Regardless of whether you're sharing plates from our appetizer menu or keeping the entire dish all to yourself, ordering an app is a great way to start your dining experience. Around here, you'll find two different appetizer menus to choose from. One at the main restaurant and another down by the pool at the Sushi & Asian Grill. 

Here's a quick peek at both of those. (Settle in, because these lists are long!)

(Although that's A LOT already.) Beyond all of that great stuff, Backwater Jack's also hosts the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks!
