Lake of the Ozarks Winter Fun - The Mardi Gras Pub Crawl!

Even though your favorite Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant is closed this time of year, the lake can still be a fun place to visit. As a matter of fact, all of our party-going friends will be very interested to know that the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is happening next month. Now that's a celebration you really shouldn't miss! 

The Details
Over the past 17 years, the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl has grown to become one of the biggest parties in town! (They had to come up with something exciting to do while everyone waits for Backwater Jack's to open back up!!!) On Saturday, February 17, 2018, the lake area will be "crawling" with buses filled with people celebrating this awesome holiday. 

Wristbands to attend the event are only $10 a piece, and that wristband is your ticket to everything this incredible party has to offer. It gains you access to every participating bar and restaurant on the route, each of which will host their own live music, plus a ride on any one of the pub crawl shuttle buses from 4:00 pm until after the bars close at 1:30 am. Those buses also stop at many hotels along the pub crawl route. You can find a list of on-route & off-route places to stay along with special discounts that some are offering for the weekend by visiting

The Stops
Most of the waterfront bars are shut down for the season, but you may be surprised to find out that there are some great places to enjoy on land that are open year-round. These lucky places get to join in the pub crawl fun. (But they don't get to participate in 2 Harbor Hops every summer like we do!) 

  • Wobbly Boots
  • Wicked Willie's
  • Tucker's Shuckers
  • Arris
  • Mexicali Blues
  • JJ Twigs
  • Tirebiters
  • Chevys
  • Li'l Rizzos
  • Vista Grande
  • Inn at Grand Glaize
  • Lucky's

Next Up, St. Patrick's Day!
We hope that all of our incredible Backwater Jack's customers get the chance to experience the Annual Mardi Gras Pub Crawl. Once that's over, we'll be ever-so-much closer to March, which contains opening day for the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks! It won't be pool season right away, but we will have all of your favorite food and drinks, plus that awesome atmosphere that no one will ever recreate! Enjoy your winter break knowing that once its over, it'll be time to get back to Backwater Jack's once again!

  1. This place is so special! Speaking of special, this is how our evening went. I met my buddies in the downstairs part of New York venues, which is more than just an average kind of bar with a lot of woodwork.
