#1 - Dads LOVE Cajun Food!
How could they not? With the magnificent blends of authentic rubs and spices direct from Louisiana that we use to create our dishes, you'll find the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks on our plates! Crab Cake Pasta, Jambalaya, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, and our amazing Shrimp-N-Grits are all popular choices.
If you father, or someone else in the group, happens to be one of those rare people that doesn't love a bit of Creole flavor, we've got a menu full of delicious dishes for them too. Our Jack Daniels Glazed Chicken, Filet Mignon, Catfish Dinner, Asian Shrimp Salad, and the wide variety of Prime Rib Burgers will tickle their taste buds. If there are young children in your group, they'll find lots of tasty choices on our kids' menu to make them happy too.
#2 - Food tastes better eaten lakeside.
You can eat indoors any old time, and in the warmer months, you can enjoy lunch or dinner outside just about anyplace too, but dining by the water with the gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks as your view makes the experience extra special! We've got plenty of seating on our lakeside deck for groups of all sizes, as well as an outdoor tiki bar. If it's a little too hot outside for you, we've also got lots of space to sit indoors with another bar and that gorgeous lake view right outside the window.
#3 - We're conveniently located by land or by water.
It's easy to reach us by land in Osage Beach at 1680 Autumn Lane. From Hwy 54, turn onto KK, go right on 3 Seasons Road, follow the signs, and you're here!
For those spending the afternoon on the lake for Father's Day, you can find us at the 21 MM. Shorty Pants Marina is located at the end of our docks, where you can fuel up, sit and relax for a spell, and stock up on everything you need for a day on the water. When you're done dining at the restaurant, you'll be ready for more time playing on the lake. You can even pick up some incredible Shorty Pants gear (t-shirts, hats, drink koozies...) before you leave as a souvenir of this great Father's Day.
#4 - We've got the games.
If Dad's a sports fan and is worried about missing the games, let him know we'll have them playing right here for him! The Cardinals and Royals both have games that afternoon, and the US Open will be in full swing. You'll find plenty of TVs inside, as well as cozy seating around the outdoor TV over the fireplace, plus more screens to keep an eye on in the tiki bar. Let us know dad will be watching the game while you're here and we'll find you the perfect spot to hang out and cheer along with us.
#5 - You'll make memories to last a lifetime!
When you bring the family to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, you know you're in for a day full of fun, laughter, amazing food, and memories in the making! All of those day-to-day distractions that you face on a daily basis at home can be put aside for a bit. While you're here, you are free to spend some good, quality, family-time together with dear old Dad. So what do you think? We'd love to spend this Father's Day with you!
The Lake's #1 Creole Cuisine Restaurant, where you can expect a luxury, laid back experience at Lake of the Ozarks!!
