Thanks For Another Incredible Season! - Closing Day December 10, 2017

We're coming to the end of the 2017 season for our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant & bar, and looking back, this year has been one of the best ever! We are definitely a bit sad that Backwater Jack's is closing down for the winter, but those feelings are eclipsed by the excitement we have knowing that next year is going to be even better! 

Customer Appreciation Weekend
We cannot close this place down for the season until we get to hang out with all of our awesome customers one more time. (The winter will be a lot easier to get through after we make some unforgettable memories this weekend!) 

As a thank you to all of the wonderful people that helped to make our 2017 season so amazing, we'll be offering HALF-PRICE DRINKS & FOOD on Saturday and Sunday, December 9th & 10th. Not only do you get to enjoy a few of your favorite dishes and drinks again before we go into hibernation, but you get them at an incredible discount. Why? Because you guys deserve it! This…

5 Things Backwater Jack's Is Thankful For This Year

It's that time of year when everyone begins reflecting on all of the reasons that they have to be thankful. Our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has been contemplating that too. All of us here at Backwater Jack's have tons of things to be thankful for, and in today's blog, we're sharing the top 5 reasons with you. 

We're Still Open For 2017!
Yes, you read that right! In case you didn't already realize it, our 2017 season is still going strong. We're simply having too much fun to close the doors for the year yet, and we are thankful that so many of our great customers are here with us each day. There's plenty of seating inside our warm and cozy dining room, and you still get the pleasure of that outstanding lake view from in here.  

We are open 7 days a week right now, we'll be closed on Thanksgiving Thursday for the holiday, and after that, we will remain open Thursday-Sunday weekly. There is no definite date set for ending the…

Still Open and Still Ready To Party!

This is the time of year when a lot of waterfront bars & restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks close down for the season, but not Backwater Jack's! We're still open, and we plan to be open for quite a while yet. It's too soon to close up shop because we've still got plenty of party left in us, and we bet you do too! Get yourself back to Backwater Jack's right now to join us for some extended summer fun.

Indoor Seating With A View
Mid-Missouri weather likes to keep us guessing, so there will very likely be more days where it's nice enough to sit outdoors on our lakeside deck and enjoy the waterfront view. For those days that get a bit too cold for that, we've got a spacious indoor dining room where you can hang out with all of your friends, and maybe make a few new ones while keeping yourself warm and comfy. The best part is, you've still got that gorgeous lake view to enjoy through the windows. Fall at the Lake of the Ozarks is definitely a sight you …

It's Steak Night EVERY Friday at Backwater Jack's!

You know that the best food at the Lake of the Ozarks can be find at Backwater Jacks every day of the week, but some days we make it even better than usual! This fall brought back one of our most popular weekly events - Friday Night Steak Night. Join us each Friday evening to get your weekend started off right with a big, juicy, mouthwatering Filet Mignon dinner! 

Fantastic Filet Mignon
The star of the show on Steak Night is a delicious 7-oz. premium cut of Filet Mignon. The name "Filet Mignon" is French for "tender fillet" or "delicate/fine fillet," and it earned that name because it truly is one of the tenderest cuts of beef. It comes from a part of the cow that doesn't get used very much, which is the reason why the meat is so very tender.  

For the simple price of $14.99, you not only get that mouthwatering steak, but also one of Backwater Jack's signature side dishes. Your choices include:

Our Amazing Fried Potato SaladFrench FriesFired Green Bea…

Gotta HOP Back to Backwater Jack's for the 32nd Annual Fall Harbor Hop!

It's time once again for the Annual Fall Harbor Hop! This Saturday, October 14 is your chance to take part in an awesome day on the water "hopping" from waterfront bar to waterfront bar picking up cards for a winning poker hand. Backwater Jack's will have cards for you, along with the best-tasting food, most amazing drinks, and the best heated pool at the Lake of the Ozarks. After grabbing that card, you're going to want to stay a while! 

The Hop
Here's how Harbor Hop works. You begin at one of the more than 40 participating waterfront bars and restaurants on the list, pay on optional $20 donation to register, and receive the first card for your poker hand. If you want to play more than one hand, go ahead and register more than once! 

You then get to spend the rest of the day "hopping" from place to place picking up a new card at each stop. Once you have a full hand of 7 cards, you'll turn it in at that final location. If you're not happy with …

5 Reasons to Visit the Lake of the Ozarks This Fall

The lake area is a very popular vacation destination all summer long, but not everyone realizes what an amazing place it is to visit in the fall too. If you're not lucky enough to live here year-round, Backwater Jack's has 5 wonderful reason why you should travel to the lake area this time of year. 

Backwater Jack's is still open!
Even though our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant is a seasonal place, our season is far from over! Weather permitting, we hope to still have our incredible food and drinks available to you all fall long, and possibly a little longer. 

We've got lots of outdoor seating for the pleasant days, and plenty of indoor seating when the weather pushes you inside. We have shut down the Sushi & Asian Grill already, but don't worry, because we've moved enough of the ingredients and equipment up to the main restaurant that we can still serve you quite a few delicious dishes off of that menu in addition to our regular menu.   


Spectacular Specials Every Week at Backwater Jack's!

Every day at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is an awesome day to be here, but our weekly specials give you an extra reason to be here on certain days. (Also, plenty of reasons to show up more than once a week!) Backwater Jack's has the best weekly specials in town, and we've added an extra one for the fall featuring tender, juicy steak!

We've got a delicious remedy for a "case of the Monday's" here at Backwater Jack's. When the weekend's over and you're a bit "crabby" about another long week starting, head on over for this incredible special. We'll give you some great pricing on a pound of succulent Snow Crab, plus discounts on our tasty Rum Runners and Pain in the A**'s. Bet you're looking forward to Mondays now!

Arriba! Who needs Taco Tuesday when you can celebrate Tequila Tuesday here with us!?! Our awesome house margaritas are Buy-1-Get-1-Half Off, an…

Still Plenty of Time To Swim & Enjoy Sushi at Backwater Jack's!

Backwater Jack's has always been an awesome place to hang out, but this season two of our new additions made it even better - the Sushi & Asian Grill and the best pool at the Lake of the Ozarks! Even though summer is technically over this Friday (the first day of fall) we aren't closing up either of our popular attractions anytime soon. Instead, we've decided to extend our summer through October! 

80° Heated Pool
Yes, you read that right, the pool at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant is heated, so we can keep it open for you to enjoy a few weeks longer. The water will be a comfortable 80°, which is perfect for relaxing with a cocktail from the swim-up bar on a lazy afternoon. 

According to the weather forecast, we've got some days ahead of us that the temperature will be in the 80's, and possibly even the low 90's, which means Mother Nature isn't ready for summer to be over yet either. Throw on you suit and get yourself back to Backwat…
