Backwater Jacks is one of my favorite water bars In Osage Beach! I have yet to have anything that wasn't very good. Exciting news for them too they are in the process of putting in a huge swimming pool which will be open this season and lots more parking!

My favorite restaurant on the Lake is BJ's Bar and Grill. Great food and friendly staff, but dining outside on the deck and soaking up the ambiance is the best! Had the grouper--excellent!

Great service when many other locations already closed for the winter months. The cleanliness and service quality matched the solid food quality. Drinks also yummy! Loved the crab legs. No sides included for the Deal, but with a little appetizer, you are easily satisfied. Thank you

Nice remodel, always have a good band playing live music. Food is o.k. and they serve large portions. Good Cuban sandwich. We went on Monday night when they had crab legs on special which were really good and reasonably priced. Had a great server, not fast service but just right.

We arrived at Backwater Jacks for a late lunch / early supper. Service was good. It was very busy. Food was ok, but not exceptional. I would go back for the atmosphere. Fun place to watch people. Has boat access.

Visiting Lake of the Ozarks? This is the place to go for the true lake experience. It has easy access by water or land. Get there early to get a good docking space. This is a lively scene with live music on the weekends and great people watching. The food is good. I recommend the grouper and fried potato salad.
