The weather seems to keep us guessing around here lately at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina in Osage Beach. (Of course, that's par for the course here in mid-Missouri pretty much any time of the year!) This week we're blessed with sunshine and comfortable temperatures for enjoying time outdoors.
While it lasts, it's a great time to hang out at our waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks on the lakeside deck and leisurely enjoy a drink or two and something delicious to munch on.
A variety of appetizers are an excellent way to slowly snack on small bites over a period of time, plus great to share with a table full of friends. The longer you can manage to make the food last, the longer you can enjoy the moment! Here is a look at the appetizers you'll find on the menu at Shorty Pants Lounge that can help you do just that.
A bountiful blend of Andouille sausage, crawfish, and shrimp with pepper jack cheese plus sauteed peppers and onions.
Our house-smoked wings are served in orders of 10 or 20 in your choice of the following:
- Extra Hot
- Garlic Parmesan
Slow-smoked pulled pork, Turbodog cheese sauce, and red beans piled high on corn tortilla chips and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapenos.
Blackened Chicken Nachos
Tortilla chips piled high and smothered in our Turbodog cheese sauce, then topped with spicy chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapenos and served with our salsa and sour cream.

The 2020 season at our waterfront Cajun restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks is not over yet, but the end is in sight. That means it's more important now than ever to head on over to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina before all of your Cajun food favorites are gone until next spring. The weather is perfect and the food and drinks are as deliciously irresistible as ever. Don't miss out!
