6+1 Reasons to go to Backwater Jack's This Weekend


Of all the restaurants and water bars at the Lake, only one stands out: Backwater Jack's. This weekend, we're pulling out all the stops! The best bar at Lake of the Ozarks is found right at our doors. Do you need reasons to check out the best restaurant in Osage Beach? Here's 6+1! 



1. Waterfront Bar View


Eating seafood, drinking a Caribbean cocktail, you'd think the ocean would be right at your feet. And you'd be close! Our bar is right on the water at Lake of the Ozarks. Complete with palm trees and dock access, you will have a hard time explaining to friends that you didn't go down to the tropics!

2. Red Beans and Rice


Red Beans and Rice is a dish as old as the bayou and blends a perfect mix of Cajun and Caribbean. This homemade mix of red beans, onions, green peppers, and Andouille sausage is mixed together with Cajun spices and thrown over wild rice.


3. Jack's Island Seafood Salad


Do you enjoy Shellfish? Try one of our succulent seafood salads, mixed with shrimp, bay scallops, and crab meat. Served over fresh greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and sweet bell peppers, this salad is a seafood lovers dream come true.


4. Rum Runners


Originating in the 1950's Florida tropics, this fruity drink is perfected at Backwater Jack's. Served frozen with a Bacardi 151 shooter over the top, this cocktail will open up the palate, setting your mouth on course for authentic and unique Cajun food.

5. Live Music


Nothing completes the perfect meal and drink combo like live entertainment. Here at Backwater Jack's we've got you covered! Saturday night, Johnny G. & the All-Stars will be performing. This locally based blues band has been winning competitions and performing at the Lake for over a decade! Sounds ranging from Jimi Hendrix, the Allman Brothers, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny G. & the All-stars cover everything from the soul filled sounds of Blues to the riff-ripping guitars of Rock.

6. Royal Pain in the A**


Another favorite! Let's take that delicious rum runner from before, combine it with a pina colada and BOOM! You have our most famous, most popular drink. This thing will cure colds and leave you wanting more! Having a drink has never tasted this good!

+1. Atmosphere


Great food, better drinks, and legendary entertainment, all based on the coastline of Missouri's most famous lake. What's not to enjoy? Arrive by boat or car and you'll soon realize why Backwater Jack's is the best waterfront bar at Lake of the Ozarks.

Come Out This Weekend!


When you need a great place for entertainment and good food, we have everything you need. From the incredible view, to the mouthwatering food, we really are the best restaurant at Lake of the Ozarks. Come out this weekend and enjoy Johnny G. & the All-Stars while you sip on our legendary rum runners!
