Celebrate National Seafood Month With a Bit of Cajun Flavor

We are known far and wide for having the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and many of those Cajun dishes feature some type of seafood. Since October just happens to be National Seafood Month, we figured it was an excellent time to highlight a few of the mouthwatering seafood dishes you will find at Shorty Pants Lounge

Seafood is Good For You
Seafood is not only good to eat, but it's good for you. Did you know that there are many health benefits to eating seafood? It is recommended by the American Heart Association that a person should eat fish twice a week to improve heart health. This is mainly due to the high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood.

It's also a great source of protein and many other vitamins and minerals. Other benefits for your body of eating seafood are: good skin, a boost in brain power and healthy eyesight, it is good for joint stiffness, and can even decrease depression. In addition to all of that, they way we cook it up, it tastes pretty amazing too!

A mix of sweet coconut combined with crunchy frosted flakes send these huge gulf shrimp over the top! They are served with a sweet raspberry sauce for dipping.

A mouth watering mixture of spinach, artichoke, and blended cheese, with our own tasty addition of crab. It's served with warm tortilla chips.

We've still got a few great weeks of fall weather ahead of us, so you'll have plenty of chances to visit your favorite waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks before our season is over. Don't wait, though, because we want to see you in here as many times as possible before winter's chill sets in. We open for lunch at 11 am, and our Sunday Happy Hour features drink specials on our famous Cajun Bloody Mary's, Screwdrivers, Mimosas, and Margaritas. See you soon!
