Backwater Jack's - Your Labor Day Weekend Headquarters at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Labor Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks is a 3-day weekend jam-packed full of fun and excitement! (More if you can manage to start your vacation early on Raw Deal Thursday at our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks!) There are lots of things going on all around the lake, but if you're wanting to truly enjoy yourself, here are 5 reasons that Backwater Jack's is the only place to be.  

Zero Ducks Given Pool Party
We have the best lakeside pool at the Lake of the Ozarks and we throw the most amazing pool parties in it! On holiday weekends, it gets even better with our infamous Zero Ducks Given Pool Parties. On Saturday, September 1 from 11 am-7pm we'll be sectioning off the pool area for this unbelievable 21+ celebration. 

There's a $10 cover charge to get into the pool area, but you're not going to want to have to watch this exciting event from outside the fence! The pool will be party central all day long. We've got 3 incredible DJs lined up - DJs Ol Skewl, Styles, and KLow - to keep this event's energy level at its peak. Pace yourself though, because once this pool party comes to an end, that's when the band starts playing! We're going to keep partying all weekend long, day and night!

We'll Keep You Dancing
As always, we've got the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks gracing the Backwater Jack's outdoor stage. It's perfectly positioned so you can enjoy the show from both the pool and the restaurant, so no matter where you park yourself, you're going to be entertained! (We'll start our list below with Wednesday, in case you're lucky enough to be in town and can start your Labor Day Weekend early!)

Lots of Room to Play
Large crowds of people flock to the lake area to celebrate Labor Day Weekend, but that's not a problem for us. (The more the merrier, after all!) There's lots of seating inside the restaurant and tons more outside, and you've got a spectacular lake view no matter which spot you choose. 

There are four different bars to belly up to (with one that you don't even have to get out of the pool to get to) and lots of room around the pool area for you to lounge and relax. You might as well gather the entire gang and all get back to Backwater Jack's together! 

Easy to Reach by Land & Water
It doesn't matter whether you're traveling by boat or by car, it's easy to find us both ways. We've got an enormous parking lot and all the cabs know how to find us. Just tell them "I've gotta get back to Backwater Jack's!" They'll know how to get you here, and they'll be happy to come back later and pick you up.

If you're driving yourself, you can find us in Osage Beach off of Osage Beach Parkway. From there you take Beach Drive to Cocu Court, and you can't miss us! By water, we are located on the 17.5 MM. You should be able to find a spot to dock since we added more space earlier this year, but just in case everyone else has the same great idea about hanging out with us as you do, "boat-pooling" (just like carpooling) is always a good idea.

Our Food & Drinks Can't Be Beat 
Last, but certainly not least, the thing we're most widely known for. Our kitchen produces the best food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and our bars are filled with the coldest beer and most refreshing cocktails you've ever had the pleasure of sipping. All of your old favorites can still be found on the menu, and with the addition of our Sushi & Asian Grill in the pool area, we most definitely have a perfect dish for even the pickiest gourmets in your group.

Labor Day weekend at Backwater Jack's is going to be the best place in town to celebrate the holiday with all of your friends. This party does not mark the end of the fun to be had at the best waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks though. We've got more exciting things coming your way this fall, so plan to be getting yourself back to Backwater Jack's quite a few more times this year!
