Get Back to Backwater Jack's for Our 2021 Season!

While many of you are preparing to party at the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl this weekend (Feb. 19-20. Learn more about that event in last month's blog) all of us here at Backwater Jack's are busy preparing for a very special date a bit further out than that. Opening day for our waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks is coming up very soon! Consider the Lake Pub Crawl your warm-up for the fun and excitement we'll have waiting for you when we all get back to Backwater Jack's again! 

Opening Day
Thursday, March 11, 2021

Beginning on Thursday, March 11, 2021, Backwater Jack's will open our doors at 11:00 am every Thursday-Sunday. (Once again, just in time for St. Patrick's Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks!) We'll keep those hours to get things started and most likely extend that to 7 days a week at some point in April. 

Remember all of the awesome times and fantastic food and drinks you enjoyed here with us last season? Just in case your memory is a bit fuzzy, here are a few reminders to get you even more excited about our 2021 opening weekend!

All Your Favorite Foods

All of those irresistible menu items you've been craving since last fall will be available again right away. (Except for the sushi but don't worry, it'll be back again later this season! ) 

We're ready to start whipping up a few batches of that famous Fried Potato Salad to serve alongside our most popular main dishes. Whether you're in the mood for some fresh Snow Crab Clusters, a Ribeye Steak Sandwich, a few Colossal Crab Rangoon or some hand-breaded Grouper Fingers, we'll take care of you! 

Delicious Drinks

You're going to need something refreshing to wash down all of that fantastic food.  Our fully-stocked bar will be mixing up marvelous margaritas and those fantastic frozen drinks that are so irresistible. We have a nice wine selection and an excellent variety of ice-cold beers too. Make sure you come in thirsty and we'll totally make it worth your while! 

The Best Live Entertainment

As you've come to expect every season, the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks happens on the stages at Backwater Jack's. The large outdoor stage is centrally located so that you can enjoy the entertainment from anywhere you choose to sit. 

Even when the weather isn't pleasant, that doesn't stop our musical fun! There's a stage inside too so we can all stay warm, dry, and keep the party going! This season's schedule is still being finalized but if you keep an eye on our Facebook page you'll know when we update the performance calendar.  

Later This Season...

Once we can trust the weather to stay warm enough, we'll be opening that awesome lakeside pool once again, along with the swim-up bar. Don't worry if the occasional chilly night is still lingering because the pool is heated. 

It won't be long after the pool opens that we'll be planning the best pool parties at the Lake of the Ozarks.  You can also look forward to the Sushi & Asian Grill opening back up along with bar #4 right next to it. (Yep, 4 bars at Backwater Jack's. We know how hot and thirsty you people get in the summer while you're partying!) 

We'll Be Seeing You Real Soon!

It won't be long before you can call up all of your fun friends and tell them "We've gotta get back to Backwater Jack's!" Mark your calendars right now for Thursday, March 11, 2021, and help us start this season off with a bang! 

The best place to party at the Lake of the Ozarks will be open every Thursday-Sunday for now, but that will change to 7 days a week before you know it. Then we'll be well into the best season at Backwater Jack's yet! Don't miss a moment of it!

  1. I have to start with the delicious food your establishment has always offered. My family and I have been true patrons of BWJ for so many years, way before the pool, etc. Today, my husband and I came for a nice break from hosting guests (we live here full time) and I have never had such a disappointment. The 'bartender' at the outdoor bar where we can only have sushi, was inattentive, dismissive and didn't even suggest other options, since there wasn't any wine available. He had a full 'trimmed' Beard and was very involved with the couple sitting on the Lake side of the 'sushi' bar. He has turned my love of your place to a non-recommendation to anyone who visits us, as well as all of our neighbors. He ruined that experience for all who used to love it.

  2. I recently rented a surf boat from Sunnyside Marina in Lake Tahoe, and it was an absolute game-changer for our lake experience! The staff at Sunnyside were not only friendly and knowledgeable but also ensured that we had everything we needed for a fantastic day on the water. The surf boat was in excellent condition, and the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe from the boat made the experience even more memorable. If you're looking to elevate your lake adventure, I highly recommend renting a surf boat from Sunnyside Marina – it's the perfect blend of excitement and relaxation! Tahoe surf boat
