Cajun Inspired Cooking
Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina uses rubs and spices direct from Louisiana in our cooking, giving it the flavor you'd expect if you visited the French Quarter in person. Cajun food is a style of cooking that could be classified as a rustic cuisine. The French-speaking Acadian people that made New Orleans their home many years ago created fantastic recipes using ingredients that were easy to find in the region.
Some of the staples used in Cajun include rice, sausages, seafood, and vegetables. You'll find amazing dishes throughout our extensive menu containing these ingredients. The Bourbon Street Eats section of the menu is rich with them, and it's a great place to start your Midwestern Cajun flavor journey.
