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

There were several of us who went during the middle of the week and the food was so-so and the service was lacking. Unless you were sitting at the bar. Very loud. We ate and couldnt wait to get back to our boat to get otta there.

Any time we're in the Lake of the Ozarks Osage Beach area for shopping, sightseeing or whatever, we always make it a point to stop in at Backwater Jacks for a meal ... either lunch or dinner. We love the location right on the water and love the colorful atmosphere. Whether sitting indoors by a window or outdoors on the... More

Went for a girls weekend to that area and we somehow found this awesome little bar and grill! We sat up on the deck over the water and saw boats and listened to a great singer that sang a variety of songs while we visited. Had the Grouper Fingers (wow) and the chicken nachos and the Crab Rangoon. They were... More
