Let Backwater Jack's Help You Keep Your New Year's Resolution!

Image
It's tradition for people to make New Year's resolutions. However, it is also pretty common to not follow through with them. While a resolution to visit the Lake of the Ozarks' favorite waterfront bar and grill more this year is an easy resolve to keep, not all resolutions are so easy. At Backwater Jack's, we want to help you keep your New Year's resolutions this year and not let them fall to the wayside. Here are seven tips from the best waterfront bar and grill at the Lake of the Ozarks to help you stick with your New Year's resolutions. 

1. Be Realistic

One way to make sure you fall short of your goal is to make it unattainable. If you think you drink too much caffeine, making a New Year's resolution to completely cut it out is setting you up to fail. Instead, make that goal attainable by setting it as avoiding it more often or limiting your intake. 

2. Make A Plan

Decide how you are going to handle it when you begin to think about breaking your resolution. …

Thanks For A Great Season!

We couldn't hold off the winter season forever, and unfortunately, this will be our last week of the season. To celebrate the wonderful 2016 season, we are thanking all of our customers with a Customer Appreciation Day on December 23 with half price food and drinks until it's GONE! With the season coming to a close at Backwater Jack's, we wanted to take some time to look back at the fabulous summer season at Lake of the Ozarks' best waterfront bar and grill!

Best Spot on the Lake
My favorite restaurant on the Lake is BJ's Bar and Grill. Great food and friendly staff, but dining outside on the deck and soaking up the ambiance is the best! Had the grouper--excellent! ~ 44beachbonnie Springfield, Illinois

Celebrate Another Wonderful Season At Backwater Jack's!

Image
All good things must come to an end. While we are sad that we will be closing our doors for the season on December 23, we want to celebrate how great of a season this one has been. This has been a fantastic summer and fall, but since you can't stop winter from coming, we will just have to remember all the good times and just wait it out until summer 2017 when we can do it all again. Before we settle in for the winter, we're going to throw one last party that you definitely won't want to miss! Here are the top three reasons to come celebrate with the best waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks as we close out another amazing season. 



1. Unbeatable Specials

Since it's the end of the season, everything must go! Join us on Friday, December 23 for our Annual Customer Appreciation Day. We'll be serving 1/2 price food and drinks ALL DAY (or until it's gone)! Without our loyal customers, we would not have been able to stay open this far into the season, so this is our …

10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Whiskey

Image
The weather is getting colder and many people have switched from delicious, frozen drinks to drinks that warm us up! Many favorite winter cocktails feature whiskey, so your Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar and grill dug up some facts about it so you can impress your friends the next time you're around the bar. 


1. Whiskey can last forever.
If left unopened and out of direct sunlight, whiskey can be kept indefinitely. In addition, if you open a bottle and seal it up properly, it can stay for a very long time. The sun won't ruin whiskey, however, it can change the taste. 

2. There are millions of barrels of whiskey.
Because of the aging process, whiskey is kept in barrels for several years by most distillers. This means that in warehouses around the world there are tons of barrels just sitting. Kentucky alone has 5.7 million barrels of bourbon in storage, which is the most the state has had since 1975. 

3. Whiskey is clear before barreling. 
Whiskey is perfectly clear when it comes o…
