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.

Newly remodel, place looks sharp, clean and revitalized! Food, drinks and service is always good and consistent! Last visit tried the seafood quesadilla and grouper bites, both were very good along with the huge Cobb salad! Always a safe bet!

Rainy day, decided to try here for a bite to eat. Bartender was fun, pretty interesting. Best grouper fingers I've ever had, and I lived in FL for 20 years! I'd recommend it.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on August 14. This is a very fun atmosphere with a great menu. We sat outside and had the grouper fingers and a BLT. Both were excellent as was the service. I highly recommend trying this place...More

Enjoyed our appetizers at Back Water Jacks. They've got really great wings and the biggest Crab Rangoon at the lake. Many varieties of beer. Good service and good food!

Waterfront setting is very nice and casual. Went a little after 8 pm and wasn't overcrowded. Band playing on the outside deck was good entertainment. The young hostess had a look and attitude that read that she didn't want to be there. No friendly greeting...More
