Lobster Seafood Eggrolls

One of our favorites! Ordered 3 for our table of 8 people and we all said we could easily eat an entire order ourselves!

Captain's Platter

Absolutely amazing! Went after my partner's commencement with family and friends. Service was great even though they were busy and the food was perfect. Only downside was the cocktails were more flavor than anything, but have found that's quite common in the Clearwater area. I'd say 4.7 stars out of 5.

Seafood Marghertia Pasta

The seafood pasta is out of a dream! Our whole family loves going to Backwaters and everyone can find something off the menu. The grouper sandwich is another family favorite!

Prime Rib

Asked for the end cut and it was great. I enjoyed the prime rib and my wife loved the blackened seared scallops.

We love BW! It's consistent, fun and turns out great food. Our favorite are the peel & eat shrimp. The cheese steak sandwich in a wrap is also delicious. This is definitely one of our favorite local places to eat!
