Backwater Jacks Restaurant - Bonita Marina

Backwater Jacks, located in the beautiful Bonita Bay Marina, offers great, casual dining in season with a unique waterfront location on the Imperial River. It is the go-to place for seafood, burgers, drinks and more at dinner, without the need to get all dressed up. Our talented, new chef -- Cory Bass -- has nightly dinner specials that keep everyone coming back for more. Be sure to scroll down this page to click on our dinner and bar menus, which will change periodically during the season.

Community residents have enjoyed “Jacks” for almost two decades. This year, some 700 residents are “Jack’s Pack” frequent diner program members, who enjoy a range of privileges while showing their support for our casual dining alternative inside our gates. We also have live music every Friday and Saturday night from 6pm to 9pm.

Jack started his Jack’s Pack premium dining program for two important reasons:

  • First and foremost, to help generate the cash flow needed to keep the restaurant open inside the gates as an amenity for the entire community.
  • Secondly, in return for your support, to help our customers save money.

Both objectives were successfully met. Jack’s Pack has helped minimize our operating losses each season, allowing Backwater Jacks to continue to operate inside our gates and our Jack’s Packers to save a total of $140,000+ in discounts last season!

This is a win/win in everybody’s book. Please click on the link below for more details on all of the Jack’s Pack great benefits and an application.
