Backwater Jack's Awesome Appetizers: A Snack, a Meal, or Both?

Sometimes you're kind of hungry but maybe not for an entire meal. That's a great time to have a look at the appetizer menu at Backwater Jack's. Of course, if you're not sharing with someone else, many of our appetizers are hearty enough to substitute for an entire meal on their own! 

Regardless of how hungry you actually are, the appetizer section at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant & bar is a great place to start. You'll find tasty app choices on both our regular menu and at the Sushi & Asian Grill. Maybe you could take an "appetizer tour" of the place and order a few from each kitchen!

Backwater Jack's Appetizers
The appetizer menu at the main restaurant is filled with traditional favorites, succulent seafood, the biggest Crab Rangoon in the lake area, and so much more! Even if you are ready for a great big lunch or dinner, it's going to be hard to resist enjoying one of these first.

Popular & Unique Foods You'll Find at Backwater Jack's

Backwater Jack's uniquely combines the styles, cultures, and ingredients of South Florida and the Caribbean with traditional favorites of the Midwest. This Coastal cuisine with a Midwestern flair is amazing on its own, but we are also able to offer the best sushi at the Lake of the Ozarks for your dining pleasure. 

Every single dish we serve is unique in its own way but here are a few items that are extremely popular with diners at Backwater Jack's. 

At the Main Restaurant 
Our waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks has been around for quite a while although we've grown tremendously over the past couple of years. We still cook up incredible cuisine in our main kitchen and we've added a second menu down by our fantastic pool. Here are a few customer-favorite menu items from our main restaurant. 

Fried Potato Salad
Nobody seems to be able to resist the lure of our signature Fried Potato Salad! It's listed as a side dish but it's a menu item that alw…

Shrimp Fans - You've GOTTA Get Back to Backwater Jack's!

We've got a wonderful variety of delicious dishes to choose from at Backwater Jack's but today we're focusing on a small food that packs BIG flavor - shrimp! It's a very popular item to order at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant and we offer it in a wide variety of ways. 

Raw Deal Thursdays
One of the most popular days of the week around here is Raw Deal Thursday. It's not because everyone is trying to get an early start on the weekend (although a lot of them are!) but rather because every Thursday Backwater Jack's offers amazing deals on shrimp, oysters, and wings! You also get $1 off canned beers to wash it all down with and amazing live music to listen to while you dine! 

Shrimp on the Menus
In addition to the Raw Deal Thursday shrimp, our restaurant menu and the menu at the Sushi & Asian Grill down by the pool offer quite a few savory shrimp dishes 7 days a week.
