The Mouthwatering Prime Rib Burger Creations at Shorty Pants Lounge

Whether you're having lunch, dinner, or a midday snack, there's just something about a burger that always sounds delicious! If you're in search of the best burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks, then look no further than our Prime Rib Burger Menu. We're famous for our magnificent Cajun dishes, but Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina knows how to grill up an unbelievable burger too. 



The definition of a burger is "a sandwich consisting of one or more cooked patties of ground meat, usually beef, placed inside a sliced bread roll or bun." BORING! That does technically describe what we serve at the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, but in a very dull way. 

The fact that we use only the very best ground beef available for our patties, plus top them with the tastiest toppings imaginable, you end up with a meal that's a million times better than the typical burger! Check these out:

Don't worry, we've got a long season ahead of us, so you'll have plenty of chances to try each and every one of them, plus many more dishes fresh out of the Shorty Pants Lounge kitchen. 



Add on a scrumptious starter, refreshing drink, and delicious dessert to that order, and there's a good possibility that you'll be needing a doggy bag to take home. Good news, because Shorty Pants Lounge food still tastes fantastic as leftovers! It's like two amazing meals for the price of one!

It's Mardi Gras Pub Crawl Time - Where Are You Staying?

The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is only a few weeks away. While it's a little too early in the year for your favorite waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks to be able to participate, our sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, is the best stop on the pub crawl route! If you're traveling from out of town, you'll need a spacious, comfortable place to stay, and that's where Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina can help you out! 





16th Annual Lake of the Ozarks 

Mardi Gras Pub Crawl
Saturday, February 18, 2017
Buses run 4 pm - 2:30 am
Wristbands - $10


An Evening of Fun & A Sober Ride
Every year the Mardi Gras Pub Crawl at the Lake of the Ozarks gets bigger and better. This year, a $10 wristband gives every party-goer entry into the 17+ participating venues, live entertainment at each one, and bus transportation along the entire route all night long!   

There will be 32 buses running this year, beginning at 4:00 pm, and not stopping until an hour after the bars close to make sure everyone gets back to where they're going safely. You can even find a list of hotels along the pub crawl route that all of the buses will pick up and drop off at. As for the participating bars and restaurants, most of the buses will be stopping at every one, but there will also be a few express buses running in case you want to get back to the other side a little more quickly. 



Pick Up Your Wristbands
One $10 wristband gets you into every venue, so you don't have to bother paying a cover charge at each one. They will be available for purchase the week before the Pub Crawl, as well as the night of the event, from every participating place. You can also buy them at some of the hotel sponsors and Sunshine & Daydreams on the Bagnell Dam Strip.


Party at the Boot
Like we mentioned earlier, the best stop on the Pub Crawl is at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. They're starting the party early with the Barefoot Entertainer himself, Dale Blue! He'll be on stage from 4-8 pm, followed by the always entertaining Vinyl Richie from 8 pm-close. Just in case you don't want to wait for a table to eat, they'll even have a food tent set up outside so you can grab a delicious bite before jumping back on the bus.  


Stay with us!
A party this big (the world's largest pub crawl!) deserves a full weekend to celebrate. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina just happens to have two of the best vacations rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks for you to stay in while you're here. They're conveniently located close to all of the Mardi Gras action. Even better, there's plenty of room to bring a whole crowd of friends along with you and split the cost!

The Glass House offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps up to 8. The Red House has even more space with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and can comfortably sleep up to 13. Both vacation rentals feature all the comforts of home, including full kitchens, a washer and dryer, and decks with panoramic views of the lake. Head on over to our website to find out more, see photos, and book your weekend before someone else snatches it up! 



The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is an exciting night to participate in, and once it's over, we're excited because we're one more event closer to opening day at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina! Have an awesome Pub Crawl weekend, and we'll be seeing you soon.
