Satisfy Those Cajun Cravings at the Lake of the Ozarks

Opening Day 2020 for Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina in Osage Beach is set for Friday, March 6! (That's just a couple of weeks away!!!) It's been a while, so today's blog has a reminder for you about everything to look forward to when you finally make it back to the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks this season. 

Amazing Cajun Food & Drinks
More than likely you've been craving another taste of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks over the past few months. Well, the wait is almost over! Our kitchen will be cooking up all of your favorite Creole cuisine beginning at 11:00 am, 7 days a week, starting March 6, 2020. Get ready for those World Famous Crab Cakes, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, Po Boy Sandwiches, Jambalaya, and a whole lot more! 

We've got a taste of New Orleans for you at the bar too! Our Cajun Bloody Mary is an irresistible classic around here and the many varieties of Hurricanes we mix up is a true treat for your taste buds!  

Even More Tasty Treats
Although we're widely known as the best Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, our talented chefs are not limited to just that. The menu features savory steaks, fresh salads, delicious seafood, incredible sandwiches, wraps, and burgers, plus a fantastic kids' menu. 

As for drinks, you'll find all of your favorite frozen cocktails to enjoy while dining lakeside. We also carry a wonderful variety of ice-cold beers and an amazing wine list. No matter what you are thirsty for, our fully-stocked bar can take care of that thirst! 

Incredible Live Music
The outdoor stage at Shorty Pants Lounge hosts the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. Discover a wonderful mix of soothing sounds to enjoy during dinner and on into a lovely lake evening along with bands that will have you on the dance floor all night long. The finishing touches are being put onto our 2020 music schedule but once it's complete, you can always find an updated list on our website.  

Full-Service Gas Dock & Marina
Just down the dock from the restaurant, you'll find the best gas dock & marina at the Lake of the Ozarks. In addition to being a great place to fuel your boat, Shorty Pants Marina also contains a fully-stocked convenience store with all the things you might need for a day out on the water. When you're ready for a pit stop during your day of boating, this is also where you'll find the cleanest restrooms on the lake. 

If you're in need of a place to park your boat or personal watercraft while you're in town, we have covered dock slips available from sizes 14x36 up to 20x56. Marina amenities include showers, washer/dryers, free WiFi and electric, free ice, and gated parking.  

Waterfront House Rentals
Located right next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina are two of the best vacation rental houses at the Lake of the Ozarks. (These are both available to rent year-round, even when Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is closed for the season!) 

The Glass House features 1,500 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 8 guests comfortably. The Red House offers 3,400 square feet to enjoy and can house up to 16 guests. Both rentals have an unbelievable lake view plus all the comforts of home for groups both large and small. They feature gorgeous decks, a full kitchen, BBQ grill, washer/dryer, and spacious rooms for everyone to enjoy. 

Mark Friday, March 6, 2020, down on your calendars now and make plans to return to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina early this season (and hopefully many more times throughout the season!) Never been here before? Then you simply must make a trip this year to give our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant at try. You're going to love it here!

February Events at the Lake of the Ozarks - Mardi Gras Lake Pub Crawl, Pre-Pub Crawl Concert, & a Gourmet Wine Dinner

February is full of awesome events at the Lake of the Ozarks! The Mardi Gras Lake Pub Crawl is highly anticipated every year and our sister restaurant, Dog Days Bar & Grill, is hosting a concert with two fantastic bands. (Definitely a weekend you do NOT want to miss! Need a place to stay? Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront vacation rental houses are the perfect place!) 

On top of all that excitement, our other sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, is hosting their final Fireside Chat Dinner for the season in February too. In case you didn't already know, winter at the Lake of the Ozarks can be just as thrilling as summer!  

Concert at Dog Days
Friday, Feb. 7, 2020
The night before the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks, Dog Days Bar & Grill will be open for another one of their off-season, one-night-only concerts! The event will be filled with incredible drinks, lots of dancing, and the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. The perfect warm-up party before the Lake Pub Crawl. 

Doors will open at 7:00 pm with music beginning at 8:00 pm. The Grasshopper Unit and their tribute to the Beastie Boys will get the action started. That will be followed by the face-melting 80s metal band, Machine Gun Symphony. Tickets can be purchased right now at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for just $10 each. On show night, they'll be $15 at the door at Dog Days Bar & Grill.  

Mardi Gras Pub Crawl
Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020
After a night full of partying at the Dog, you can sleep in on Saturday because the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl doesn't start until 4:00 pm. That should give you plenty of time to rest up and start the party all over again! This is the one night mid-winter that the lake area is nearly as crowded as it is mid-summer!

There are 13 stops on this year's Lake Pub Crawl and a single $10 wristband will get you into every one of them. That's also your ticket onto the dozens of pub crawl buses that will be running all night long, from 4:00 pm-2:30 am, making sure you have a sober ride to every stop. Wristbands can be picked up at all of the participating venues closer to the event date. For more details, visit www.LakePubCrawl.com

Wine Pairing Dinner at Wobbly Boots
Tuesday, Feb. 18
February at the lake also brings a gourmet evening of culinary delights. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach is hosting a Fireside Chat Dinner featuring 5 gourmet courses created by the talented Chef Kevin McCowan. Each course will be paired with an amazing wine. 

The event takes place in the Boots' Fireside Room next to that cozy fireplace, so seating is limited. Call 573-348-2277 to reserve your spot before they are all gone. If you miss this one, you'll have to wait until next fall before you get the chance again! 

Spend the Night at Shorty Pants 
Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina may be closed this time of year but our waterfront vacation house rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks are available year-round. You get a fantastic lake view, relaxing surroundings, all the comforts of home, and plenty of room for lots of family and friends. 

The Glass House is able to host up to 8 people. The Red House can accommodate up to 16 guests. (Of course, you're more than welcome to enjoy the entire place to yourself or someone special... Valentine's Day is coming up in February too!) It's not too early to start booking dates for your stay during the most popular summer events as well.   

February at the Lake of the Ozarks is looking to be pretty amazing. Immediately after that, March brings St. Patrick's Day at the lake and the opening of quite a few Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurants & bars. (We don't have a date set quite yet for Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina but it's getting closer every day!) Have fun this winter and we'll be seeing you again in the spring.
