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 premier dining program for two important reasons:

First and foremost, to help keep the restaurant as a viable amenity for the entire community; and, second, in return for your support, to help those who enjoy our waterfront dining and marina save some money. Both objectives were successfully met. We were able to minimize our operating losses last season, allowing Backwater Jacks to continue to operate inside of our gates, and our Jack’s Packers saved a total of $140,000+ in discounts last season!

That is a win/win in everyone’s book, so we are repeating the Jack’s Pack program again for the coming season.
