There's plenty of variety at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina to please a variety of tastes. Here's a look at 10 of our most popular menu items to get you in the mood for a trip to our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant & bar.
Crab Cake Pasta
Our crab cakes are irresistible as an appetizer already and being placed on top of a bed of pasta makes them even more so! We take two handmade shrimp and lump blue crab cakes and place them on a bed of fresh fettuccine with shrimp and top all of that with our delicious seafood cream sauce.
Raspberry Chicken Salad
This salad is packed full of incredible flavors! It is filled with fresh spinach, apple slices, grapes, heirloom tomatoes, and grilled chicken and served with our house raspberry balsamic dressing.
New Orleans Medley
When you simply cannot decide between the many different Cajun delicacies we have to offer, this plate gives you a taste of four of the best! It's a plateful of our signature entrees; creamy Crawfish Etouffee, rich Jambalaya, Red Beans & Rice, and a half-link of our Andouille Sausage. YUM!
Black Jack Filet
For this mouthwatering delicacy, we serve up a dry, aged, blackened 7-oz. filet and top it with house-made Jack Daniel's steak sauce, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, and onions.
Shrimp & Grits Tacos
Tacos are always a crowd-pleaser and with this special Cajun twist, we've made them even harder to resist! We place our famous jalapeno grits under shrimp, Andouille sausage, bacon, and jalapeno lime sauce.
A big, flavorful meal wrapped up in a tortilla! We pack a sun-dried tomato tortilla full of Andouille sausage, our Big Easy Shrimp, and red beans & rice to make a full-bodied wrap that will satisfy even the biggest hunger.
Catfish is a popular menu item all over the lake area and when we combine it with one of our other signature dishes, we're willing to bet it quickly becomes your favorite way to eat catfish! We fry a catfish filet to a golden brown and place it on a bed of rice. Next, it gets "smothered" in a heaping helping of our Crawfish Etouffee. Avoiding fried food? It's great blackened too.
This hearty burger is a favorite with diners who enjoy a bit of "heat" in every bite! It starts with an 8-oz burger patty made with a house blend of chuck, brisket, and short rib. Next, it's blackened and topped with pepper jack cheese and jalapenos! For anyone needing a little less "fire," we've also got 5 more mouthwatering burgers on the menu to choose from.
We put more flavor inside this tortilla than you even knew was possible! It contains a bountiful blend of Andouille sausage, crawfish, shrimp, sauteed peppers, onions, and pepper jack cheese.
You'll find four Po Boys on the menu that each sound so good, it may be a tough decision for you picking just one! You may choose either Fried Oysters, Blackened or Fried Catfish, or Fried Shrimp on French bread with lettuce, tomato, and Cajun mayo. We also offer a Po Boy with Smoked Andouille Sausage, our homemade remoulade sauce, lettuce, and tomato.
Now that we've got you good and hungry, head on over to our waterfront Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and place your order.
