We've Got the Cajun Flavors of Bourbon St. in Osage Beach!

Get the taste of New Orleans right here in mid-Missouri with the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks. You don't have to travel far to enjoy the flavors of Louisiana when you make a trip to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina.

Cajun Style Cooking
Cajun food is a style of cooking that could be classified as a rustic cuisine. These particular types of recipes are named for the French-speaking Acadian people that made their homes in Louisiana. They used the ingredients that were easy to find in the region to prepare flavors that stood the test of time and people can't get enough of. 

Some of the staple items that you will find in Cajun cooking include rice, sausages, seafood, and vegetables. Shorty Pants Lounge's menu is filled with these throughout, but it's especially evident in our Bourbon Street Eats offerings. These dishes feature rubs and spices direct from Louisiana, just like you would encoutner if you visited the French Quarter in person. Here's a look at the amazing Cajun meals we have for you right here in mid-Missouri. 

Our Bourbon Street Eats

Crab Cake Pasta
Two delicious handmade shrimp and lump blue crab cakes are placed on a bed of angel hair pasta with delicious seafood cream sauce.

Cajun Alfredo
A mildly spiced Alfredo tossed with fettuccine noodles. Add chicken or shrimp, or if you can't decide, add them both!

Easy Street Trio

You will love this sweet and spicy blush cream sauce with andouille sausage, shrimp, and tender chicken, all served over fettuccine.

Chicken New Orleans

A blackened chicken breast sauteed with a trio of bell peppers paired with a kickin' Cajun cream sauce and served over rice.

Shrimp N Grits

Large shrimp sauteed with andouille sausage, onions,and mushrooms, served over our homemade cheddar cheese and jalapeno grits.

Voodoo Chicken
A spicy marinara blackened chicken breast gently placed over a bed of sauteed onions, peppers, and rice.

Smothered Catfish
A catfish filet, either fried or blackened, served on a bed of rice, smothered in our crawfish etouffee.


A Louisiana rice-based dish that is steeped in rich and subtle spices along with andouille sausage, smoked chicken and shrimp. If you're up for some extra flavor, try it dirty!

Red Beans N Rice

This classic dish is seasoned to perfection and served with a link of andouille sausage.

Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee
Crawfish & shrimp smothered in a rich, creamy etouffee sauce with creole vegetables, served with rice.

New Orleans Medley

A plateful of our signature entrees, creamy crawfish etouffee, rich jambalaya, red beans & rice, and a half link of our andouille sausage. 

Cajun Dining, Inside & Out
In addition to those mouth-watering meals, you will also find a fully stocked bar capable of creating hand-mixed cocktails that complement them perfectly. Your legendary drink choices include muddled Mojitos and Cajun Bloody Mary's. We also have a wonderful selection of wines and the coldest beer at the lake. 

You can enjoy waterfront dining at the Lake of the Ozarks when you visit us, but if the fall weather is a bit too chilly, you can sit next to our outdoor fireplace or inside our spacious dining room. Our restaurant is smoke-free indoors, and we have an excellent kids' menu, making this a great place to eat for the entire family. 

The next time you are craving a little Creole cuisine, head on over to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. It's a lot closer than a trip to New Orleans, and it tastes every bit as amazing!

Fall Family Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks

Our Lake of the Ozarks Cajun restaurant is located in the middle of one of the most magnificently scenic areas in mid-Missouri. No matter what season you visit, the natural beauty is absolutely stunning. Fall is no exception, and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina knows about a few fun things for you and the family to do while you are here. If you stay in one of our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental houses, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy a lot of these.  

Pumpkin Patches
There are a couple of pumpkin patches in the lake area that offer lots of fun for people of all ages. You can get much more then just pumpkins at these attractions.  

  • Cave Pumpkin Patch
    • New to the area, this farm is located at 123 Swinging Bridges Road in Brumley, MO. It costs $6 for a day full of excitement. Activities include: a corn crib, mini golf, a duck race, a water balloon sling shot, pumpkin painting, a barrel train, hay ride, and so much more, including entrance to the cave. Concessions are available, and there are plenty of great photo opportunities. It is open on Saturdays & Sundays in October from 10 am - 5 pm. 
  • MECCA Family Farm
    • Located at 425 Delmar in Roach, MO, this farm is open Saturdays & Sundays throughout October from 10 am - 5 pm, and it's filled with fun things to do. The $5 admission fee gives you access to a big slide, the petting zoo, hay rides, a maize walk, the corn crib, and face painting, to name just some of the fun awaiting you. They also have a corn cannon that you can fire for a small additional charge, and a concession stand full of seasonal treats.    

Scenic Parks
If you like to hike and enjoy being out in the crisp fall air, then a trip to one of the many scenic parks at the Lake of the Ozarks may be a great day for you. Here are a couple that are nearby, and both are accessible by land and by water.

Ha Ha Tonka, photo form 
  • Ha Ha Tonka
    • There are tons of trails to explore in this gorgeous state park, plus the ruins of a historic stone mansion, a natural bridge, and the Ha Ha Tonka Spring. Make sure that you bring your camera, because this amazing area is something that you will want to document and share with everyone you know.    
  • Bridal Cave
    • One of the most scenic cave tours in America is located near Shorty Pants Lounge. Bridal Cave is open year-round, and during the tour you will learn all kinds of interesting geological facts, plus hear fantastic tales from the cave's past. The cave is in Thunder Mountain Park, which has many trails to explore and a fire tower that you can climb. You will also find lots of unique rocks from around the world in their gift shop, and you can even pan for treasures in their sluice. 

Halloween Fun
The lake offers quite a few Halloween activities for families. Some may be a bit scary, others are more tame, but they promise fun. You can find contact information for all of these events, plus more, at

  • The Haunted Holler - Friday-Sunday until October 31
    • A quarter-mile haunted trail in the woods 1-mile behind Hy-Vee in Osage Beach. Admission is $10, and it is recommended for ages 6 and up. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

The first 200 kids to arrive will be given a free Lake Regional Cares for Kids t-shirt. 
  • Halloween Bash Trick-or-Treat on the Strip
    • The historic Bagnell Dam Strip will have trick-or-treating at participating local businesses along the strip from 1-4 pm. There will also be costume contests with prize categories for both children and adults.

    • Hy-Vee's pumpkin patch in their Osage Beach parking lot will be transformed into a trick-or-treating maze from 4-7 pm. Entry is $2 per child, and this money will be donated to the Dream Factory and Wonderland Camp. 

Stay in 1 of Our 2 Rental Houses at the Lake
There are a few great weekends left this fall for you to visit the lake area, and Shorty Pants has the place for you to stay while you're here. Why rent a room when we've got entire houses available for you to enjoy? There's room for the whole family, or even a big bunch of traveling friends. 

The Glass House sleeps up to 8 comfortably, and the Red House can house up to 13 guests. Both rental houses have gorgeous decks with breathtaking lake views, grills for barbecuing if the weather allows, a washer and dryer, full kitchens, and many comforts that will make you feel right at home. If you want to get in a little fall boating, feel free to use the courtesy docks in our marina. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina are only a short distance away from these magnificent houses. 

Don't forget that Christmas will be here before you know it, and the lake area has many wonderful places to shop. Make your reservations now for one of our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental houses so you and a group of friends can spend a few days checking out all of the unique stores this area has to offer. We hope you have a great season, and we hope that you spend a little bit of it right here with us.

Celebrate National Seafood Month With a Bit of Cajun Flavor

We are known far and wide for having the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and many of those Cajun dishes feature some type of seafood. Since October just happens to be National Seafood Month, we figured it was an excellent time to highlight a few of the mouthwatering seafood dishes you will find at Shorty Pants Lounge

Seafood is Good For You
Seafood is not only good to eat, but it's good for you. Did you know that there are many health benefits to eating seafood? It is recommended by the American Heart Association that a person should eat fish twice a week to improve heart health. This is mainly due to the high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood.

It's also a great source of protein and many other vitamins and minerals. Other benefits for your body of eating seafood are: good skin, a boost in brain power and healthy eyesight, it is good for joint stiffness, and can even decrease depression. In addition to all of that, they way we cook it up, it tastes pretty amazing too!

Shorty Pants Seafood

Big Easy Shrimp
Large gulf shrimp sauteed in Budweiser, rosemary, butter, and a zesty lemon sauce.

Sweet Coconut Shrimp
A mix of sweet coconut combined with crunchy frosted flakes send these huge gulf shrimp over the top! They are served with a sweet raspberry sauce for dipping.

Crab Artichoke Spinach Dip
A mouth watering mixture of spinach, artichoke, and blended cheese, with our own tasty addition of crab. It's served with warm tortilla chips. 

Crab Cake Pasta
2 handmade shrimp and lump blue crab meat cakes rolled in seasoned bread crumbs and topped with more shrimp, served in our seafood cream sauce, all atop a bed of fresh fettuccine. 

Seared Ahi Tuna
6-oz. of sesame encrusted Sashimi style Ahi tuna, served with sesame ginger dressing and a wasabi cream sauce. You will find this on our starters menu, and also as a sandwich and on top of its own specialty salad.

Asian Shrimp Salad
Fresh greens and crispy cabbage with blackened shrimp, served with a medley of tomatoes, carrots, red peppers, baby corn, slivered almonds, Craisins, and rice noodles, tossed with a toasted sesame ginger dressing. You can also try it with blackened Ahi tuna on top. 

Cajun Fried Oysters
Lively, seasoned, hand-breaded, southern fried oysters, served with our house Bloody Mary cocktail sauce.

Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee
Crawfish & shrimp are smothered in a rich, creamy etouffee sauce with creole vegetables and served with rice. If you're in the mood for even more seafood, try the Smothered Catfish, which has this dish poured over the top of a delicious catfish filet. 

Catfish BLT
Now you're in the South! A hand-breaded catfish filet served with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and our Cajun mayo on a toasted French roll. Available fried or blackened. 

Catfish, Oyster, or Shrimp Po Boy
Choose either southern fried catfish, big deep-fried gulf oysters, or hand breaded shrimp for this sandwich with Cajun mayo, lettuce, and tomato. 

It's National Dessert Month, Too!
October likes to pack a lot into its 31 days! Top of your Seafood Month celebration at Shorty Pants Lounge with one of our savory desserts.

Bananas Foster
Fresh bananas, thickly sliced and sauteed in our Cruzan Black Strap Rum sauce and topped with vanilla bean ice cream. 

Chocolate Bayou Cobbler
A decadent Hershey's chocolate experience topped with vanilla bean ice cream and whipped topping. A must try!

Try this French Quarter favorite, Louisiana's doughnut. Perfectly deep-fried pastry tossed in powdered sugar and served with our house-made sweet raspberry sauce. 

We've still got a few great weeks of fall weather ahead of us, so you'll have plenty of chances to visit your favorite waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks before our season is over. Don't wait, though, because we want to see you in here as many times as possible before winter's chill sets in. We open for lunch at 11 am, and our Sunday Happy Hour features drink specials on our famous Cajun Bloody Mary's, Screwdrivers, Mimosas, and Margaritas. See you soon!

Join Us Saturday for the Fall Harbor Hop

We know how to keep the fun going well into the "off-season" here at the lake. The 31st Annual Fall Harbor Hop is happening this Saturday, October 8, 2016, and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is the best card stop on the route! Fire up that boat, grab your most fun friends, and head on over to the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for your card, plus so much more. 

Harbor Hop at Shorty Pants 
We'll be passing out cards to complete your poker hand from the time we open at 11 am until 7 pm, when the Harbor Hop ends. Make us your first stop and grab some lunch, join us for an appetizer and a cocktail midday, or pick up your final card here and stay for dinner and a beautiful sunset after the event. If the weather decides to get chilly, we'll even light the outdoor fireplace, or you can join us indoors. 

Don't forget that we also happen to have the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks in Shorty Pants Marina. You can gas up your boat and grab a few essentials for the crowd on board too. The C-store is packed full of all kinds of goodies: drinks, snacks, ice, sunglasses, boating supplies, koozies, hats, awesome one-of-a-kind Shorty Pants swag, and much more.

Your hand will be turned in when you collect the 7th card. If you aren't terribly happy with your luck that day, you will be allowed to draw an 8th card for an additional $5. 

All hands must be turned in by 7 pm, and winners will be notified by mail. Prizes will be given out in the form of gifts certificates, and the more money raised during Harbor Hop, the bigger those prizes will be. Here is how it will all break down: 

  • 1st Place: 10%

The Reviews Are In & We've Got the Best Vacation Rentals in Town!

Our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental houses were brand new for us this past summer, and they seem to have been a hit! Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina has two amazing rental houses that are available all year long. 

Our inaugural season made many visitors to the lake very happy. We have gathered a few of the reviews that were left for us this year. After reading about the experiences these people had, we bet you'll want to vacation with us and make a few memories of your own!  


If you truly want to take your time and experience all that the lake area has to offer, making yourself at home in one of our two rental houses is the way to go. The Red House offers 3,400 square feet of living space and can comfortably sleep up to 13 guests. Both rental homes have lakefront access and panoramic lake views.   

Awesome House
"This house was perfect for our large group, with lots of room to spread out and lots of large tables, inside and out. There are 2 refrigerators and dish washers and plenty of living space. The house is newly remodeled and had everything we needed. The staff at Shorty Pants Marina and at the bar and restaurant were all wonderful and very helpful. The walk from the dock to the house is short, and even better, has a bar in between. Loved this place and we will be back." ~Diane G.

Exactly what we were looking for, great experience!!
"We rented the house for a bachelor party weekend and this setup was perfect for us! It's a non-traditional bach pad set-up, although I don't see why it couldn't be used for a more family oriented trip - it was very clean and nice. We had 11 people, and could have slept several more comfortably. The house is a stone's throw from Shorty Pants Lounge, which I think is under the same ownership. This restaurant / bar was fun to hang out at and had live music. The owners / management team were responsive and accommodating. The grill's propane tank ran out, and within 20 minutes they had gone out to get and delivered a replacement. The house has a spacious upper deck with good patio furniture, as well as a great lower screened in patio with a long table - both were perfect for hanging out and playing games! Highly recommend this as a great getaway spot!

~Tucker W.

Great location next to food and marina.
"The house was perfect four our needs. 4 bedrooms and 4 baths was great for our large group. Everything in the place is brand new so there were no problems. If we had any questions Ashley was just a phone call away. The proximity to food/bar and the marina were great. The two patios gave us plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the weather. Loved that the second patio was screened in. We had a great experience renting from Shorty Pants, and we would definitely do it again!

~Tim G.

Amazing House
"It was obvious that the house has been redone and it looks perfect! Great location right by the lake. I would definitely stay here again." 

~Austin B.


If the Red House is a little larger than you need, our other house is just as comfortable and inviting. This Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental house boasts 1,500 square feet of living space and sleeps up to 8 guests.  

Great Experience
"The house is adorable and very clean. Just steps from shorty pants restaurant which made dinner easy. They also have a marina which made forgetting a toothbrush an easy fix. Ashley was great to communicate with and left her cell number on the chalkboard inside in case we needed anything. Myself and 7 other girls had a great experience!

~Brandi B.

Awesome place!
"Great experience! Perfect location and had everything we needed!

~Steve L.

Nice home and great location!
"This house has a nice deck & grill. All the amenities you need and more. The place looks new.

~Brett B.

One gorgeous ride is out to our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant, and once you're here, you can take a break and enjoy our spectacular lake view. 

The 10th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Bikefest will be taking place Thursday-Sunday, September 15-18, 2016. In addition to the scenic rides, you will also experience vendor villages, amazing live music, awesome displays, cool contests, bike nights, and so much more. One highlight in particular of this annual event is the Passport Ride, and Shorty Pants Lounge is one of the 24 stops.

The 2016 Passport Ride
The biggest reason to purchase a passport for Bikefest is the fact that it encourages you to travel far and wide and really experience many different areas around the lake. Another pretty good reason to join the fun is the fact that you can win your very own 2015 Harley-Davidson Street Bob Breakout Motorcycle! 

It's simple to enter. Pick up your passport for a $20 donation at any of the stops along the way, and every time you visit another stop, get them to stamp it for you. Completed passports need to be turned in to the Official Passport Booth at Lake of the Ozarks Harley-Davidson no later than 2 pm on Sunday, September 18. While you are there, they will have some amazing live music all weekend long on their outdoor stage set up especially for this event. You may turn your passports in during the following times:

Thursday, 9/15: Noon - 6 pm
Friday, 9/16: 8 am - 8 pm
Saturday, 9/17: 8 am - 8 pm
Sunday, 9/18: 8 am - 2 pm

Our fully stocked bar creates the best hand-mixed cocktails at the lake, and we've got an excellent selection of beer and wine too. You can still get the best Cajun food outside of Louisiana off of our menu, and this year we've also added gourmet tacos filled with your choice of Shrimp & Grits, Pork, Chicken, or Mahi, plus yummy cheese & sausage appetizer plates that are perfect for a quick bite.
