Holidays Are Happier When WE Do Your Cooking!

If you have a lot of guests heading your way this holiday season, give the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks a call and let us take care or feeding those hungry people for you.  There will be enough to worry about with all of the rest of your planning.  Avoid the cooking and cleaning by bringing your menu wishes to us.  Shorty Pants Lounge can cook up the tastiest meals and appetizers for everyone on your party list. 

Along with our sister restaurants, Dog Days Bar & Grill and Wobbly Boots BBQ, we are a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group.  This amazing compilation of the best restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks brings together all of your favorite dishes.  Even throughout the winter season when our restaurant is hibernating, you can still call up and have us bring over your favorite flavors.

We Deliver!

It's as simple as this:  call us up to discuss what types of food you are craving, we'll come up with a menu, prepare it, and bring it to you!  The talented chefs in each of our kitchens will work together to create a customized menu for your holiday party or special event.  We can take care of any gathering that you need to have catered, including office parties, family gatherings, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, seminar breaks, and more.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...  We can do it all!  Our smoker can even come to your event with us, and soon we'll even be delivering everything in our very own customized catering van.  Keep an eye out for that around town in the near future!  

Any event, large or small!

Any gathering, from a few friends all the way up to a group of 500, the Barrett Restaurant group can take care of you!  This past summer we catered a beautiful wedding, and the bride was very happy with what we did.  

"Wobbly Boots, Dog Days, and Shorty Pants did an amazing job catering our wedding! We cannot say enough about the food and the service! Kevin and Luke were great to work with and Hanna and Kim did an awesome job bartending/serving and just overall helping out during the wedding reception! Many guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had! It was very memorable and a nice change from traditional wedding meals! We would recommend them to cater any event!" -Alicia Skilondz

Bring the gang to us!

If you need a spot to host your holiday party, we might have the perfect place for you. Shorty Pants Lounge has been the site of wonderful events in the past.  You can enjoy hanging out by the water while enjoying the warmth of the indoors.  When you call we would be happy to talk to you about possibly hosting your holiday party in our restaurant.

7 Reasons We Are Thankful This Year

November brings with it Thanksgiving, which gives your favorite waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks a reason to think about all the things we have to be thankful for.  We are very lucky, because once we started thinking about it, we realized that Shorty Pants Lounge is an incredible place for a lot of reasons.  Here are seven things that make us say "Thank you!"  

Amazing Customers

The chance to work in a fun environment right next to the water brings us all to work here, but it's the wonderful, happy faces of our customers that keep us smiling and coming back for more day after day.  Watching all of you enjoy your time with us makes us want to keep doing what we do.  Shorty Pants Lounge wouldn't be the success it is if we didn't have so many loyal and amazing customers, and we are very thankful for that.  

We Turned 10

In July of 2015, Shorty Pants Lounge celebrated our 10th Anniversary.  It wasn't just the milestone itself, but the way we got to celebrate.  We hosted the best all-American crawfish boil that the Lake area has ever seen.  Jim Beam, Hurricanes, beer, and bugs were had by all, along with an awesome time!  We are both thankful that we had the opportunity to celebrate this milestone and for the fact that you were right there to share the moment with us. 

Being voted "Best Gas Dock" AGAIN!

Thank you once again to everyone in the Lake area that voted us as having the Lake of the Ozarks Best Gas Dock not only this year, but for the past 6 years!  We do our very best to make sure that we keep our gas dock and c-store stocked with anything and everything that you might need for a day out on the water.  We are extremely thankful that you all noticed and graced us with this honor.  

Exciting Events

Annual events around here are always something that we look forward to and remember fondly after they are over.  This year we were able to take part in some incredible events.  The 2nd Annual Warriors Against Melanoma Poker Run and the Shootout PWC Poker Run.  We even got to host the after party for that last one! Speaking of poker runs, we can't forget about both the Spring & Fall Harbor Hops that brought so many of you to our docks.  There was the 9th Annual Bikefest that we were honored to be a Passport stop for.  Don't forget about the 16th Annual Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament that we have so much fun doing with our sister restaurants every year.  As if those weren't enough, holiday weekends here at the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks are events in themselves.  The thing that we are most thankful about with these is the fact that "annual" means we get to do them all again next year!    

Incredible Music

Some of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks has made its way on to our lakefront stage over the past 10 years, and this past Summer was one of the most entertaining ever.  Every single Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday (and occasionally a few days in between) our restaurant was filled with amazing sounds from the most incredible musicians.  Lake area favorites like the Boomchux, Art Bentley, Dustin Clark, Noe Palma, and so many, many more joined us.  We are very thankful that they all shared their talents with us.  


Awesome Staff

Shorty Pants Lounge visitors are able to have an incredible day out when they join us partly due to the amazing people that we are lucky to get to work with.  We do our best to hire intelligent, friendly, fun people to serve our customers.  We are thankful that we had one of the best groups working for us this past year.  They made it extra-speical. 

It's Not Over Yet!

We are extremely thankful for the beautiful Fall weather that we are seeing this year. We have been graced with many days this Autumn that have left it warm enough to keep enjoying our outdoor deck.  Even on the cooler days, most of them have been bright and sunny.  We're still open 7 days a week at 11:00 am, ready and waiting to serve you up more of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks.  We aren't quite ready to pack it in for 2015, and we're thankful that our season is still going strong.   

Taking the time to look back and pick out the moments from this past year that we are thankful for is a real eye-opener.  The wonderful people seem to be the biggest reason that we are the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  From the customers to the entertainers to our staff, it's the people of Shorty Pants Lounge that make us the most thankful.

Cajun Favorites at Shorty Pants Lounge

There is a gigantic selection of amazing dishes to choose from on our Shorty Pants Lounge menu.  The best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has a little something for everyone.  While every individual has their own favorites, here are a few that we saw leave the kitchen over and over this season.


The Lake's best house smoked wings tossed in your choice of 4 taste-tempting flavors:  original, extra hot, garlic parmesan, or barbecue.  Snack on 5, dine on 10 or 20, or share a few with a whopping order of 30.  You'll wanna make sure everyone at the table gets a taste.  


One of our most popular items.  Andouille sausage, crawfish, and shrimp are the hearty staples in this dish, and sauteed peppers and onions bring out the flavor.


Fresh oysters topped with the perfect blend of spinach, garlic butter, and red pepper parmesan.  Served up with lemon wedges and saltine crackers.  This is only 1 of 3 delicious choices from our fresh oyster menu. 


Big gulf oysters are deep fried to a golden brown and placed on french bread with lettuce, tomato, and our homemade Cajun mayo.  We've also got an incredible CATFISH PO BOY available for your dining pleasure!


A mouth-watering catfish filet served on a bed of rice, and as if that wasn't enough, we then smother it in our CRAWFISH ETOUFEE.  We'll prepare it either fried or blackened for you.  Two incredible dishes turned into one!  


Now from two favorite flavors in one dish to four!  For the person that simply can't decide, our medley offers up a plate full of signature entrees.  Creamy CRAWFISH ETOUFEE, rich JAMBALAYA, RED BEANS & RICE, and a half link of our ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE.  


There really are too many popular dishes to list in only one blog, but you get the idea. Did we list your favorite above?  Maybe we listed something that looks like your new favorite!  Visit us soon and order up some of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks.  We are still open for lunch every day at 11:00 am, but don't wait too long.  It would be a shame if you had to wait until next Spring to have your favorite Shorty Pants Lounge dish again.
