We have a nice variety of non-Creole dishes on our menu too, but Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is famous for serving the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks. We incorporate classic staples of Cajun cooking, like rice, sausages, seafood, and vegetables, and combine them with authentic rubs and spices direct from Louisiana.
We're not just talking main dishes either. There are delicious Cajun creations throughout our entire menu just waiting to tempt your taste buds and satisfy your hunger in the most delicious ways possible. Here are a few examples of what you can expect to find coming out of the kitchen at Shorty Pants Lounge, but know that there's a LOT more to choose from on our full menu.

We've mastered the classic Hurricane, and our Cajun Bloody Mary is the best Bloody Mary in town! We've also got an incredible, freshly muddled Mojito on the menu, in addition to plenty of ice-cold beers and an incredible selection of wines.
While you are in the lake area, come on by our Lake of the Ozarks Cajun restaurant and give one of these mouthwatering creations a try. We offer the beauty of the lake with the taste of New Orleans.
