The 2020 season at Backwater Jack's has officially begun! You can finally get back to your favorite waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for all of those fantastic flavors you've been craving over the long winter break.

Well, almost all of them. The Sushi & Asian Grill won't be opening for a few weeks yet, but all of the delicious dishes on our main restaurant menu are here for you right now! It's an extensive menu, much too big to cover in just one blog, so today we'll start at the beginning with a look at our awesome appetizer section.
