Have been coming here for years & my how things change. They really want to focus on the party crowd. I love their new sushi menu, but it is disappointing that you have to go to the poolside bar to get it. Love Raw Thursday....More

My husband and I originally went for the swim up bar. The bartenders were nice and service was quick. We went up to eat an appetizer and it was delicious but service was awful. Our server was very slow and no where to be found....More

Today is the eve of the (in giant, booming, echoing voice) Total. Solar. Eclipse. Backwater Jacks is definitely NOT closed. If I were a better a reviewer, I would ask if this day is an exception to all other Sundays, but judging from the atmosphere,...More

Although this place is really cool when you drive up, the bands are great the pool is great and the views are amazing. And that's why it gets at least two stars. I was with several couples and another couple order the nachos as well...More

We decided to check out the new Pool and grab some sushi. The bar tender was very efficient and friendly! They only had one sushi roller so had a little wait but it was fresh and delicious!

Fun bartenders and servers, also great swim up bars! The option for sushi or bar food is great to have. The rum runners are lethal (but great) and this is a must go!

I don’t believe there are. It’s a bar with bar food. I guess the salads might fit the vegan diet.

I don’t know if they do in the summer. They are closed in the winter. We were there the last weekend they were open this season. That was the first of November. I believe they re open in March or April of next year.
