First visit to Backwater Jack's by boat, with friends. Started off with great Bloody Mary's while we perused the large menu. Went with tenderloin and fries, and Chicken Quesadillas. Delicious! The tenderloin was thick and not too much breading, fries perfect. The Quesadillas were very...More

Stopped for lunch during the week and were very pleased. The service and waitress did a great job! Moderately priced and food was good! The only disappointment was they did not have any dock helpers when you pulled your boat in.

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.
