Backwater Jack's uniquely combines the styles, cultures, and ingredients of South Florida and the Caribbean with traditional favorites of the Midwest.

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.  Jack's Baked Seafood Nachos A pile of tortilla ch
