We had six kids with us (well... they are 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 26). One of them is a chef. We all LOVED the food! It wasn't busy at all (off season for them, I'm sure). I wish it had been warmer so we could sit outside. Nice atmosphere, too!

Backwater Jacks has changed in the last few years. It’s always been fun, great entertainment and food. Since putting in the pool area, it has increased the level of fun and variety. You can get there by boat or car.....either way is fine. Their Thursday night special of wings and shrimp is always a good reason to visit. Can’t wait for next summer!

This has always been a fun place. The bar scene is fantastic. Daytime means good food. Crab appetizer is the best.

Terrible band. Environment not very clean. It was end of season, but even with all of the expansion in recent years, not a good vibe with this place.

Went there late in September. Weather was still wonderful enough to hang out in their amazing swim up bar in their pool. We'd already had lunch, but friends wanted to take the boat over to show us their favorite hangout. Seriously best drinks ever! Hubby had a pina colada, and I had their house drink which is like a rum punch. Best price for a drink on the water we've ever had. Drinks were $5 or $6 bucks. For $7 you got a vial - like a test tube vial - full of rum. Like 151 rum. Kicked our butts. They put the vial in upside down in your drink and you just pull it up little by little to add however much rum you want. Hubby is STILL talking about that drink. Can't wait to go back next summer. Hopefully when they have a band playing.
