Amazin' Cajun and More
Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant is famous for the unbelievable Cajun creations that come out of our kitchen. Using rubs and spices direct from Louisiana, if you close your eyes you'll think you're sitting in the middle of New Orleans rather than lakeside in Mid-Missouri! Some of our most popular Cajun dishes include our World Famous Crab Cakes, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, Creole Quesadilla, Po Boys, and Jambalaya.
Of course, we also offer lots of traditional favorites without the added Cajun twist on our extensive menu too. You'll find prime rib burgers, savory steaks, fresh salads, delicious seafood, incredible sandwiches and wraps, and even a kids' menu the little ones can't resist. There is plenty of seating both outside by the water and indoors in our smoke-free dining room, so there's a great place to be, no matter what that day's weather may bring.
If you're in the mood for a cocktail to enjoy along with your meal, or if you simply want to sip and stare at that gorgeous lake view, our bartenders know how to mix a legendary drink! The Cajun Bloody Marys and muddled Mojitos are always a favorite, and we feature those frozen drinks that everyone loves in the summer. You will also be able to enjoy the coldest beer in town and a wonderful selection of wines to choose from.
The best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks can be heard from our outdoor stage. You will find a wonderful mix of soothing sounds to enjoy during dinner and on into a lovely lake night along with bands that will have you on the dance floor all evening long. We are currently putting the finishing touches on our 2018 schedule, but we'll have it up on the "Events" page of our website very soon.
Marina & C-Store
Shorty Pants Marina is the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks. In addition to fuel, the fully stocked convenience store offers everything you might need for a day out on the water. They carry boat supplies such as oil, flags, and more, plus you can also pick up snacks, soft drinks, package liquor, suntan lotion, sunglasses, hats, koozies, and shirts, just to name a portion of what they have in store. When you stop by, we'll even have rocking and lounge chairs for you to relax in, free coffee, free dog treats, and free popsicles for the kiddos!
If you are looking for a place to park your boat or jet ski while you're in the lake area, our marina has 35 covered slips sized from 14x36 to 20x56, as well as PWC slip rentals.
