Food is great, have been there several times with our kids and the staff are always very friendly. Views are good as well. If you like to listen to music and have fun this is the place to go.

This restaurant has an excellent crab rangoon. We also had grouper fingers. The grouper fingers are dipped in a very unique breading before being deep fried and then they are drenched in honey just before being brought to our table. It was so delicious! We rounded out our light meal with a strawberry shortcake desert. The cake itself was just... More

We have eaten there many times. I always make sure it's on Monday. The bucket of snow crab legs has only gone up in price by $2 over the past five years. I think $12.99 for a pound of crab legs is a great value. The grouper fingers are really good also.

Have eaten several time and we have not been disappointed. The food is always very good and the view to die for being right on the water. Could use a little better cleaning in the inside dining area. Floors are a little neglected. The jalapeno poppers are the best I have had ever. They are big as your fist and... More

This place has great fried potato salad. Yes maybe that's not something healthy all the time, but good. Great Entertainment too.

My husband and I went after it was suggested by the staff at our hotel. The food was amazing! Especially the fried potato salad. I've seen comments about it being loud inside, but it's a bar and grill. Anyway, we will definitely go back if we are able to.

The facility doesn't look any different, but the food quality has taken a turn for the worse. Seafood salad was large with lettuce, very little "seafood" and what was there was tasteless. Also noticed substantial down sizing of blended drinks compared to years past. With all of the competition at this Lake, market forces may bring things back in line... More

Backwater Jacks is a lively bar/restaurant located beside the water where boaters tourists congregate for good food, cold drinks, and live music. The servers were super-friendly, the food was good (and were good-sized portions), and the atmosphere was buzzing with happy people enjoying each others' company. It was definitely loud, but it is a bar with live music, so this... More
