The Lake's Best Gas Dock - So Much More Than Gas!

Shorty Pants Lounge has had the honor of being voted the Lake of the Ozarks Best Gas Dock for 6 year's in a row.  Located just a short walk down the dock from the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you will find everything you need and more for a fun day on the Lake.       

Boating Supplies & Gas

It should be obvious that we have gas for all of your watercrafts, but we go beyond that. We also carry the essentials, like oil and cleaning supplies, to take care of the needs of your boat or jet ski.    


Our gas dock carries a wide variety of good-lookin' Shorty Pants gear for you to proudly wear back home and make all of your friends jealous.  You will find t-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, hats, and even brand-name sunglasses inside.  You will find something to fit everyone in your group, from children to adults. 

Drinks, Snacks, and Ice 

Whether you are chilling out and floating in a quiet cove or taking a long drive all the way up one of the Lake's arms, you will most likely be out there for quite a while.  We carry a large variety of candy and snacks for you to pack onto the boat for your trip. We also have soft drinks, cold beer, and bottles of spirits for you to load your cooler up with, along with the ice to keep it all cold.    

Suntan Lotion & More

You should not be out on the Lake for an extended period of time without sunscreen.  It only takes a moment to go from gorgeously tanned to burnt to a crisp.  Inside you will find sunscreen next to other personal hygiene essentials that you may have forgotten to grab that morning before you shoved off.  Razors, chapstick... just ask, because there's a good chance we've got it for you.  

Tobacco Products

No matter how well you plan, this is an item that seems to run out before you realize it. No worries, because we've got your refills here.   

Pit Stop

Even though being on the water is one of the very best things there is to do, stepping off of the boat every once in a while is a nice break.  We have great big, comfy rocking chairs out in front of our C-store, along with a lounge chair or two. While we are fueling your boat up, sit for a spell. There is also a clean restroom, especially wonderful for those of you that have been out on the water for quite a while that day already.  If you would like more than a couple of minutes break, then we've got the...

...Best Cajun Restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks

A very short walk up the dock takes you to our wonderful waterfront restaurant and bar. You will be able to spend your afternoon or evening (or both!) enjoying the best food and most delicious, ice-cold drinks anywhere on the Lake.  We have an impressive lineup of talented musicians performing every week too.  

Shorty Pants Lounge at the Lake of the Ozarks is the perfect place to fill up your tummy before re-stocking your supplies at our C-store, filling up your boat or jet ski's tank, and heading back out.  If you need something while you are out, there's a good chance that we've got it here.  Stop by and visit us soon.

10 Reasons Shorty Pants Lounge Has Lasted 10 Years

Shorty Pants Lounge turns 10 this year!  Can you believe it?  Time sure does fly when you're having fun.  We thought it would be a great time to take a look at the reasons we have become the best waterfront Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  Here are our top 10 reasons, one for each amazing year, that we have been and will remain your favorite place to hang out.  

1.  The Authentic Creole Cuisine

Shorty Pants Lounge brings the French Quarter to central Missouri.  Our menu features our World Famous Crab Cakes, Gumbo, and Crawfish Etouffee, and that's just the beginning of the amazing flavors that you will find on our extensive waterfront restaurant menu.  You will find the Cajun influence throughout the menu, but it also features more traditional fare.  We offer mouthwatering steaks, award winning baby back ribs, salads, sandwiches, burgers and more, plus a yummy menu just for the kids.  

2.  The Legendary Cocktails

The Creole connections carry over to our cocktails, too.  We have bars conveniently located both inside and out mixing up muddled Mojitos, Cajun Bloody Marys, and the New Orleans favorite Hurricanes.  There are the Lake of the Ozarks classics too.  We can mix up amazing Rum Runners, Pina Coladas, Pain in the A**, and many more frozen concoctions to cool you off on a hot summer day.  The bars are fully stocked, the beers are ice cold, and our bartenders are masters of their craft.   

3.  The Lake's Best Gas Dock

Our gas dock has been voted the "Lake's Best Gas Dock" 6 years in a row in Lake Lifestyles annual poll.  Obviously we have figured out how to do it just the way you like it.  Gas up your boat, then buy some snacks and beverages to take back out with you, and we've got the ice to fill up those coolers too.  You can also pick up a new pair of sunglasses and some pretty fancy Shorty Pants clothing to show your pride in the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  We've got plenty of comfortable rocking chairs in front of the C-store for you to relax for a few minutes before jumping back on your boat or PWC.   

4.  The Amazing Entertainment

Shorty Pants Lounge has the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks on our stage every weekend all season long, and also on Tuesday nights most of the summer.  The talented entertainers aren't the only entertainment that we offer here.  There are plenty of tvs both inside and out for you to cheer on all of your favorite sports teams.    

5.  The Birthplace of the White Party

The now infamous White Party originated right here.  Everyone decked themselves out in white from head to toe, and we even turned most of the restaurant white.  It quickly became a favorite annual event for all of our customers, so much so that it outgrew us! This year we passed along this awesome party to our sister restaurant, Dog Days Bar and Grill.  We have complete confidence that they will continue to bring the excitement to this party that we always did.  Now we just have to dream up the next big annual sensation!  

6.  The Outdoor Seating

Our customers have the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks to gaze at while they enjoy a meal or a few drinks.  We have lots of tables overlooking the water.  There is also our amazing tiki bar and outdoor bar area.  Another great feature is the comfortable seating around our fireplace.  This is especially nice in the Fall when there is a slight chill in the air and the game is playing on the tv over the fireplace.   

7.  The Indoor Seating

Sometimes the weather doesn't feel like cooperating and the outdoor seating doesn't work for everyone.  Not to worry, because we have plenty of room inside too.  Lots of tables for both large parties and small, another amazing bar, and plenty of New Orleans style decor that just might make you forget that you are at the Lake of the Ozarks.   

8.  The Convenient Location

Our restaurant is easy to get to by both land and water.  No matter where you are coming from, you will be able to reach our happy restaurant and enjoy everything that you have been reading about so far.  

9.  The Amazing Catering

Shorty Pants is a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group, which offers 3 wonderful locations to host your gathering, or we can cook up the food and bring the party to you. Our on-premise facilities include Shorty Pants Lounge, Dog Days Bar and Grill, including the Dog Pound, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.  We can custom design menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, receptions, or seminar breaks.  

10. The Customers

Last but definitely not least, our incredible customers make running this restaurant a pleasure.  You wonderful people are the reason we strive to offer the very best Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant experience that we can possibly provide.  Thank you for making the past ten years amazing.  We are looking forward to many, many more!
