Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant, bar, & marina is full of things that fathers love plus those same things can be enjoyed by the entire family. If you've been here then you already know this, but if you haven't, take a look at some of the awesomeness you can expect when you head on over to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina in Osage Beach.
For Dads With Younger Kids
If you're a part of a family that has younger children celebrating Dad this weekend, we've got food that even the finickiest of eaters will enjoy. This is great news for both Dad and Mom because that means the kids will be happy and satisfied while the adults get to enjoy the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Here's a peek at our menu for the youngest diners. These meals are served with a kid-sized drink and one side dish.
These fresh chicken tenders are hand-breaded and fried to a golden brown.
Shorty Mini Corn Dogs
Just like it sounds, a plate of corn dogs, mini-sized.
We take both white and yellow cheese and melt them together on white bread. Warm, cheesy, and delicious.
Like Dad's burger, but a bit smaller. This quarter-pound burger can be ordered with cheese or without.
For Dads With Older Kids
Once your child graduates from our kids' menu, they love the authentic Cajun creations from the regular menu every bit as much as Dad & Mom do. The mouthwatering rubs and spices we use are authentic and come to us directly from Louisiana. From Crab Cake Pasta to Jambalaya, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, and our fantastic Po Boys, there are tons of delicious choices.
Of course, Cajun isn't the only "flavor" we have to offer. The extensive menu also has quite a few non-Creole dishes that are every bit as amazing. Some of these include the Black Jack Filet, Smoked Wings, Pork Nachos, Asiago Chicken Sandwich, Summer Spinach Salad, 6 different Specialty Burgers, and a whole lot more.
For Dads With Adult Kids
Once the "little ones" aren't so little anymore they can belly up to the bar with you and enjoy a refreshing lakeside cocktail. We've got the tastiest drinks in town including Cajun Bloody Marys, freshly muddled Mojitos, all of your favorite frozen drinks, and a long list of Hurricanes. You'll also find a fantastic selection of ice-cold beers and a very impressive wine list.
For the Entire Family
So far we've only talked about the food and drinks (which alone is an excellent reason to bring the family to Shorty Pants Lounge anytime!) You'll also experience a gorgeous view of the Lake of the Ozarks when you dine outside on our lakeside deck. If you prefer to eat inside out of the heat, our non-smoking dining area has plenty of room for groups of all sizes.
Just a very short walk down the dock you'll find the best gas dock and marina at the Lake of the Ozarks. Shorty Pants Marina is the perfect place to fill up on gas and other boating essentials if you're spending the day on the water. Even if you arrived by land, the C-store has all kinds of great Shorty Pants gear to check out and Oscar, our dock dog, is usually there ready to greet you with a friendly hello.
If you decide to extend the Father's Day celebration out all weekend long, you can also join us for the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. First up on Friday, June 14, the talented Travis Marvin hits the Shorty Pants stage and then on Saturday, June 15 we've got the incredible Art Bentley. Music on the weekends begins at 7:00 pm.
So, now that we've convinced you that the best place to spend Father's Day weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks is right here with us, start making plans to get over here! If you can't make it this weekend, that's okay. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is open 7 days a week beginning at 11:00 am. Come on by anytime!
