What We're Looking Forward To Most This Summer

We know you've been waiting far too long to make it back to your favorite bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. Don't worry, though, summer will be here before we know it! We've been hard at work all winter long to make sure you have the best summer yet at Backwater Jack's. Here are just a few of the many things we are looking forward to this upcoming summer.


1. Cruising The Lake
The best part about summer at the Lake of the Ozarks is hitting the water. From Party Cove to fishing, there are many fun things to do around the Lake of the Ozarks. There's a reason why USA Today named our beautiful Lake the #1 Recreational Lake in the United States. The weather is finally heating up and we are seeing more and more boats cruising the Lake. While out on the Lake, don't forget to stop by Lake of the Ozarks' best waterfront bar and grill for lunch, or swing by at the end of the day to dance the night away!

2. Warm Weather
Of course, it wouldn't be the summer months without the beautiful warm weather. However, this year, at Backwater Jack's you can spend the day soaking up the sun in our brand new Lakeside pool at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our pool is on track to open up this summer, and we cannot wait to start enjoying it. The pool will have amazing views of the Lake and a swim up bar, so you won't even need to leave the pool to enjoy the best drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks.

3. The Best Live Music
Backwater Jack's is known for having the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks and this upcoming summer is going to be no different. We've already have had some amazing musicians already this spring, and we can't wait for all the great entertainment we have lined up this summer. Stay tuned to our social media channels to find out when all your favorite are coming to Lake of the Ozarks' favorite waterfront bar and grill.

4. Tasty Eats
From the best nachos at the Lake to our famous grouper fingers, we have something for everyone at Backwater Jack's. Whether you're looking to grab a quick bite before heading out on the water or needing to refuel after a long day, we have it all. In addition, we also have some of the best daily deals at the Lake of the Ozarks. During the peak season, you can enjoy Crabby Ol' Mondays, Tequila Tuesdays, Wine-O-Wednesdays, Raw Deal Thursdays, Steak Fridays and Super Sundays.

5. Favorite Frozen Drinks
While we may have the best frozen drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks, that's not where our drink menu ends. From our world-famous Pains to local favorite Lake water, we have some of the best drinks at the Lake of the Ozarks. Keep the party going all night long with our fully-stocked bar. Our talented bartenders can mix up nearly any drink you can think of.


We can't wait to see what this season will bring! With all the old favorites and our brand new Lakeside pool, it's going to be the best summer yet. Keep up with what's going on at Lake of the Ozarks' favorite waterfront bar and grill by following us on our social media channels. You gotta get back to Backwater Jack's!

Do You Have Spring Fever? Let Backwater Jack's Help!

Do you have a case of spring fever yet? This time of the year, it usually runs rampant. Common symptoms include restlessness, a desire to be outdoor and difficulty focusing at work. If you or someone you know has displayed any of these signs, it's important to take immediate action. With the beautiful weather, the Lake of the Ozarks is expecting this weekend, more and more cases are sure to be popping up. Have no fear, though, Backwater Jack's is here to help!

1. Get Moving
During the winter months, we all tend to be far less active, so when spring rolls around, we all 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. You can hit the dance floor and bust some moves while listening to the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. What are you waiting for? Climb on in your boats and visit us by water at the 17.5 MM.

2. Stimulate The 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 Jack's 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!


3. Enjoy The Weather
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 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 at 11:00 AM - come out and visit us this weekend. Saturday it's going to get into the high 70s and Sunday the low 80s! You gotta get back to Backwater Jack's.
