Wide Variety of Delicious Food
Even though we are best known for serving the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks, our extensive menu is not limited to just that style of food. If you are a Creole cuisine fan, you'll be excited to discover our Famous Crab Cakes, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, Jambalaya, Po Boy Sandwiches, and much, much more.
For the rest of you, there are plenty of delicious dishes without that particular influence, such as our Steak 'N' Cheese Sandwich, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, Ahi Tuna Salad, Specialty Burgers, Steaks, Catfish, and a lot more. We also have an awesome kids' menu featuring burgers, pasta, chicken tenders, mini corn dogs, grilled cheese, pulled pork, and even frozen Jolly Rancher Slushies.
We are conveniently located at the 21 MM in Osage Beach so you can reach us both by land and by water. Once you get here, we've got lots of seating on the outside deck featuring a spectacular lake view. If you have a few extra fries left over, you can even toss them to the giant fish that love to hang out around our dock.
Of course, if you've been outside all day already and need a little break from the sun, you'll find lots of tables inside too, with room for families of every size. The indoor dining room is air-conditioned and smoke-free. Very comfortable on a hot spring or summer day! (On the colder fall days too!)
Full-Service Gas Dock & Marina
Just a short walk down the dock takes you to the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks. The C-Store at Shorty Pants Marina has everything you could possibly need for a fun day out on the water, including sunglasses, sunscreen, package liquor, snacks, soft drinks, boating supplies, and a lot more. They also pump fuel for your watercraft in 87 Octane, 93 Octane, and Diesel.
Have a seat in a lounge chair on the dock while we fill you up and enjoy free popsicles for the kiddos, free coffee, free dog treats, and the cleanest restrooms at the Lake of the Ozarks. We've even got covered dock slips available to rent if you need a place to park your boat or jet ski while you're in town. Call 573-302-1004 for additional details on those or to check availability.
A Place to Stay
In addition to offering places to park your watercraft, we've got two of the best vacation rental houses at the Lake of the Ozarks for you to park your bodies in if you're joining us from out of town. We have the Glass House, which can accommodate up to 8, and the Red House, which can hold up to 16. Many dates are already booked, but we do still have some availability throughout the summer and into the fall. These rentals are right next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, so you're always close to all of the fun!
Memories Are Waiting To Be Made
Last, but certainly not least, our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is an excellent spot to make lots of fantastic memories for your family to cherish for many years to come. We'll do all of the cooking and cleanup while you simply enjoy each other's company, catching up with each other.
You can listen to some live music, feed the fish, visit Oscar the dock dog at the gas dock, watch the lake traffic go by, and of course, enjoy an incredible lunch or dinner. The next time you're looking for something fun to do with the family, bring them all to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. You are all going to love it here!
