We were there on Tuesday at 11am. It was not crowded at all. It has been updated and looks good! I ordered a club sandwich which was huge and good. Husband had the Cuban sandwich and it hit the spot. After lunch, we fed the ducks and fish which is always a fun activity for the kids. The restroom was... More

This is a great hangout for the over 30 crowd. Good music, dancing, and the food is really good. They have a nice selection on the menu and so far I have enjoyed everything I have ordered. There is indoor (a/c) and outdoor seating. Family friendly location - your kids will enjoy feeding the fish!

We asked someone at the place we were vacationing what local establishment they recommended for lunch. Their answer was Backwater Jacks. It is close to town, but it is very easy to miss the turn where the restaurant is located. I wish it had been a cooler day, we would've loved to enjoy the huge outdoor patio. But it was... More

They have the best grouper fingers! Great drinks and service! Newly remodeled and more docks added. I hear they are adding a pool, Hopefully for families!

We had lunch here and it was good. I had the grouper strips and they really were delicious. Even better than I expected. My daughter had chicken strips that were good too. The location is nice and I'm sure it's lots of fun here in the evening. Our outdoor table had a great water view. It was hot but they... More

Our food was awesome! Especially the Colossal Cheese Rangoons appetizer! I will be fondly remembering the specialty frozen drinks that are half Rum Runner/half Pina Colada! We greatly appreciated the awesome service given to our party of 17! Thanks Backwater Jacks!

Love backwater jacks. Grouper is awesome. We love the remodel. It was really needed. Only complain was the hostess ( was pretty rude ) but our waitress was a sweetheart and made up for the hostess.

We absolutely love Backwater Jacks! In 4 days we went there 3 times. The fried potato salad is to die for and their seafood is wonderful. We had the king crab legs one night. Yum! All day Thursday they have 99 cent oysters on the half shell, 79 cent jumbo shrimp, and 59 cent wings. The oysters were huge and... More
