Great Gift Ideas For Fans of the Lake of the Ozarks

The holiday gift-giving season is upon us. While you can't get back to Backwater Jack's this time of year, we know you'll be back to join us again next spring-fall 2020. How about giving away a few gifts that can be used when you're having fun at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant? Sure, they may have to wait a while to use the presents, but once summer is back in full swing, they'll be thrilled that you had such a great idea! 

Pool Toys
We have an amazing pool and swim-up bar that hosts the best pool parties at the Lake of the Ozarks. Items that can be used in and around our lakeside pool are a perfect gift to get anyone that's excited about all the pool parties you'll be attending here next year! 

It could be a cool beach towel or even a funny cover-up. Beer koozies will keep their hand warm yet the beer cold, and there are even koozies out there sized to fit frozen drink cups. (Who else is craving a Rum Runner about now?) Consider a floa…

Lots of Reasons to be Thankful About 2019 at Backwater Jack's

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Since Backwater Jack's is already closed for the season, we have plenty of time to look back and remember all of the awesome things we have to be thankful for. A ton of excitement took place at your favorite waterfront bar & restaurant in 2019. Here's a look back at a few of our favorite moments. 

Exciting Pool Parties
That incredible pool area smack dab in the middle of Backwater Jack's saw a whole lot of action this season. We're always thankful to have a chance to chill out poolside on a sunny afternoon, but even more thankful for the crazy memories we get to make at all of our exciting pool parties!

The Zero Ducks Given events on holiday weekends are always a great big, gigantic, party. Of course, our SWIMDUSTRY night swims are pretty amazing too, and if you didn't make it to our Margarita Madness Pool Party, well, you definitely need to keep an eye out for that one next year!

3 More Days Left & On Saturday, It's All HALF-PRICE!

The time has come. It's the final weekend to enjoy the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. There are 3 more days to get back to Backwater Jacks in 2019 - Thursday, Friday, & Saturday, November 14-16. To show our appreciation to all of you wonderful customers for an excellent season, on Saturday, all food and drinks are half-price! 

Drink & Dine for Half-Price! 
Once again this year, we are hosting a customer appreciation party on our final day. That means on Saturday, November 16, everything on the menu, both food and drinks, will be half-price until it's gone! 

All of your favorite flavors from Backwater Jack's are included in this discount. Be warned, though, that we expect the most popular menu items to sell out quickly.

Luckily, everything our chefs cook and our bartenders mix up is delicious, so even if your #1 favorite is already gone, there will be something…

Gotta Get Back to Backwater Jack's SOON! (The Season is Almost Over!)

We all knew it was coming. It's just about time for your favorite waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks to close out our 2019 season. Don't be sad about it. Instead, focus that negative energy into a positive desire to get back to Backwater Jack's as many times as possible before this season is over! (And of course, feel happiness in the fact that we'll definitely be back again next spring!)

Closing Day 2019:
Saturday, November 16
We closed down the Sushi & Asian Grill and that awesome pool after the Fall Harbor Hop in October. At the beginning of November (last weekend, actually) we reduced our hours down to only Thursday-Sunday. Both of those were signs that our final day of the season was arriving, and now we have an official date for it. 

As of today, you've got 8 more days (and nights) to head on over to our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant & bar to enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks again before they're gone until next year. …

More about that below, plus a peek at a few more of the tasty treats that will be waiting for you here. 

Raw Deal Halloween
For those of you that aren't already familiar with our Raw Deal Thursdays, it's the day every single week, all season long, that you can get three of our most popular foods at discounted prices! 

We're talking about oysters, wings, and shrimp... OH MY! (No, the wings aren't raw, but they taste so great we just had to include them too!) You'll need something to wash those all down with so we offer $1 off all of our canned beers as well.
