"The place was very beautiful with a swimming pool and live band that was awesome! The food was also great😃 We had onion rings, chicken wings and garlic chicken pasta. For drinks we had cheesecake and coconut margarita. The suggestions were great as well as service and met our expectations."

"This place had AMAZING views!!! The food was very DELICIOUS. And the wait staff was very friendly & took great care of our needs. Also had wild life in the water to view. We'll DEFINITELY BE BACK SOON!!!"

"Had a great experience! Waiter was entertaining and made sure we didn't wait for anything. The food, wonderful! The nachos are a meal by itself, and very impressive. We sat near the window and enjoyed the sunset and watching the boats dock, with the help of the ladies who quickly attended to every incoming vessel. Can't wait to come back for another evening."

Reviews from TripAdvisor

"Family Feast at Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill: We enjoyed appetizers of Nachos, Buffalo Shrimp & Grouper Fingers. Family members requested we meet here. The food was delicious and the service was great. The live music was an added plus."

"Great atmosphere: We were there on a cool, sunny Saturday afternoon. We sat outside as they had live music. It was fun to watch the boats come and go as well. The service was great and the food was good."

"First time visit: I sat in the bar area and had a few drinks which were good. Bartender provided adequate service. Ordered an appetizer of crab rangoon which were the largest I have ever seen and were very tasty. I ordered a hamburger to go and it was good too. There wasn’t very many people there eating due to the evening I went and it’s off season. Will go back the next time I am in town."

"Always a Great Time!: My favorite bar and grill at the lake. Great pool, great staff, and even better drinks and food. Don’t leave this spot off your list when in the Lake of the Ozarks. That simple."

"Crab night at Backwater Jack's: My husband and I were on holiday in May, just before the busy season. A local in the neighbourhood we were staying recommended Backwater Jacks for dinner. We were not disappointed. The lakeside location was beautiful, plenty of parking and relaxing. We chose an outside table and the special for Monday night was delicous Snowcrab. The price was very reasonable, the waitress helpful. I imagine that at the height of the summer season the vibe changes and it becomes a loud party scene, but it was mainly locals while we were there."

Reviews from Yelp

"This is our favorite place to go to by boat. The food and drinks are consistently good and the servers and bartenders are terrific. Many of them have been there for years which I feel says a lot about a place. We don't usually use the pool but the few times we have it was pretty clean. We really enjoy the sushi bar. Great selection and very fresh."
-Carlos J.

"Awesome place! Had a lot of fun hanging out at the bar n by the pool! The bartender was super nice n amazing! Food was great!"
-Navi K.

"We try to avoid on weekends because of the crowds.If you like crowds you'll love it. During the week when not so busy is when we go. Best homemade crab Rangoon. Great grouper too. Wings day on Thursday and the raw deal is fun too. Great by water or by land."
-Minnie M.

"We came by boat, plenty of dock parking. Good menu, jalapeño poppers were excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating. It's one of our go-to places on the lake."
-John T.
