Come kick back and enjoy the food, drink and fun at Backwater Jacks, our restaurant and bar overlooking the Marina, where casual is almost our middle name.

Our new chef, Cindy Liu, is putting her focus on light and fresh menu items this season, with more appetizers/small plate dishes, salads and sandwiches than ever before. She’s adding a mix of nightly specials, along with some of last season’s favorites, to round out a great tasting, good value menu.

We feature live entertainment two nights a week in season, plus a changing schedule of fun, special events open to all Bonita Bay residents and guests (see below).

Backwater Jacks also offers carry-out for all menu items, rooms for private parties and club meetings, and delicious, in-home catering for parties that lets you be the host and hostess, not the chef.

Come by foot, bicycle, car or boat … but come see Jack and check out Bonita’s best in casual dining.
