Celebrate Seafood Month at Backwater Jack's

In case you didn't already know, October happens to be National Seafood Month. We are done serving sushi at Backwater Jack's for the season (but don't worry because it will be back next spring!) That doesn't mean that we are done serving seafood though. As a matter of fact, you'll find some of the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks on the menu we are still serving 7 days a week! 

Seafood Appetizers
Seafood is a delicious way to start off any meal. 

Snow Crab Clusters
Nothing but the freshest snow crab clusters are served at Backwater Jack's! They are boiled hot to order and served with a tub of butter. (You can find a meal-sized portion of these on our dinner menu too!) 

Colossal Crab Rangoon
Four oversized wontons stuffed full of Jack's own crab & cream cheese mix. They are fried to a golden brown and served with our homemade apricot sauce. 

West Key's Boiled Shrimp
Succulent shrimp boiled in Cajun spices, chilled, and served with freshly cut lemon and cocktail sauce. Order by the pound or half-pound. 

Backwater's Buffalo Shrimp
Ten butterflied shrimp breaded and served with a side of Jack's hot sauce. 

Raw Oysters on the Half Shell
We serve these cold, by the dozen or half-dozen, with cocktail sauce and freshly cut lemons. 

Grouper Fingers
Our version of hand-breaded filet in our secret honey breading served with raspberry tartar sauce. 

Seafood Mix
There are a couple of items on our appetizer menu that allow you to add our savory seafood mixture of shrimp, scallops, and crab to the dish in place of chicken or veggies. These include:

  • Jack's Quesadilla - A large flour tortilla shell stuffed with black olives, tomatoes, red and green onions, and shredded cheddar jack cheese, all grilled and served with sour cream and salsa.
  • Jack's Baked Nachos - A pile of tortilla chips topped with tomatoes, black olives, and onions and then smothered in shredded cheddar jack cheese and baked. 

Seafood Salads, Pasta, & Rice
This salad is quite a meal on its own and our pasta and rice dishes are served with a dinner roll plus a Water's Edge House Salad. 

Jack's Island Seafood Salad
Shrimp, bay scallops, and crab meat mix served over fresh seasonal greens with tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, sweet bell peppers, broccoli florets, and red onions. 

Jack's Seafood Florentine Pasta
Grilled shrimp, bay scallops, crab meat, and roasted garlic served over fettuccine noodles with a rich and creamy Alfredo sauce. 

Jack's Loaded Jambalaya
A mix of sauteed green and red bell peppers, onions, crab, scallops, shrimp, chicken, and Andouille sausage tossed in a spicy sauce and served over a bed of wild rice garnished with our sweet cornbread. 

Spicy Cajun Seafood Pasta
Sauteed green and red bell peppers, onions, crab, scallops, and shrimp tossed in a spicy rich cream sauce and served over fettuccine noodles. 

Seafood Sandwiches & Entrees
All of our sandwiches are served with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle, and your choice of a side dish. Entrees are served with a Water's Edge House Salad, dinner roll, and one side dish. 

Fillet of Grouper Sandwich
Our own version of this delicately flavored fish, coated in a light batter and deep-fried until golden brown. It is also available grilled or blackened and we serve this sandwich with tartar sauce on a hoagie roll. 

Blackened Ahi Tuna
An 8-oz. charbroiled tuna steak blackened and cooked to your desired temperature, topped with garlic butter, and served over wild rice. 

A generous portion of our own version of fillets served over a bed of wild rice. It may be prepared either grilled, blackened, or coated in a light batter and deep-fried.

Weekly Seafood Specials
Every single Sunday-Friday this time of year we offer daily specials that are hard to resist. Two of these specials include some of the succulent seafood we already talked about above. 

Crabby Ol' Mondays offer up our savory snow crab clusters by the pound at a discounted price. You'll also get special deals on Rum Runners and Pains to drink along with those tasty crab legs. 

Raw Deal Thursdays feature extremely low prices on shrimp and oysters, priced individually so that you can order as many as you like. There are also incredible deals on our wings and discounts on canned beer to wash it all down with. 

That's a lot to choose from (and that's just a portion of our awesome menu) but you've still got plenty of time this season to get back to Backwater Jack's and try them all! Our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks isn't ready to end our season yet. Come on out and join us soon for a bite to eat and a whole lot of fun!
