The Daily Specials at Backwater Jack's Can't Be Beat!

You can still join us at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks 7 days a week for delicious food and spectacular drinks. On specific days, though, Backwater Jack's likes to feature special menu items at unbelievable special prices! Five of these were going on all summer long, but we've recently added a Friday favorite that a lot of people are very excited about.  CRABBY OL' MONDAYS If "rainy days & Mondays always get you down," then a trip to Backwater Jack's can at least cure any crabbiness that Mondays may bring you. (We're actually great for rainy day blues too because we've got a big indoor dining room with a fantastic lake view!)  Each Monday you can get 1-pound of our delicious Snow Crab for $13.99. Feel free to order more than just a pound! In addition to that yumminess, you can also get $1 off of our famous Pain in the A**'s and Rum Runners too. Those are all bound to put a smile on your face.
