Foolproof Cures for Spring Fever

Has spring fever caught you yet? It usually runs rampant this time of year. Common symptoms include restlessness, a desire to be outdoors, and difficulty focusing at work. If you or someone you know has displayed any of these symptoms, take action immediately - come find the cure at Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill!


Be Active
People tend to be far less active during the winter months, so when spring finally rolls around, they have a lot of pent-up energy that needs to be released. Come on out and get moving at our waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks - climb in your boats and travel by water to come see us, or bust out your dance moves while listening to the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Stimulate Your Senses
One common symptom of spring fever is increased excitement for no specific reason - or at least, no obvious reason. Many people have attributed this increased excitement to the stimulation of senses that have been dormant for the winter months; the sounds of birds chirping and the smell of flowers blooming can be incredibly energizing after a long, cold winter. 

Backwater Jacks Waterfront Bar & Grill has everything you need to get your senses tingling. Tantalize your taste buds with our fried potato salad or our famous rum runners or pains, and engage your eardrums with our talented bands and musicians... You'll be glad you did!


Get Outside
Are you having trouble focusing at work? After being cooped up inside all winter, many people find it difficult to sit in the office and concentrate on their work - especially not when the sunshine is calling their name!

One great way to fix this is to get outside as much as you possibly can when you are not at work - and coming out to our lakefront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great excuse to get outside and enjoy the beautiful spring weather! Our open-air decks serve as the perfect location to get outside and enjoy the beautiful spring air at the Lake.

Gotta Get Back To Backwater Jack's!
We're just as as excited as you are to welcome spring back to the Lake, and we would love to make the most of this beautiful weather with you! We're open Thursday-Sunday every weekend - come out and celebrate with us!
