Our appetizer servings are actually enough to pass for a meal, but if you have a boatload of fellow Harbor Hoppers with you, these dishes are perfect for sharing. That makes them a wonderful "snack" to enjoy until you can come back later for a full meal.

In reality, those starters are only the beginning! (See what we did there?) These appetizers can be enjoyed as a meal by one person or you can share them with everyone at the table and save room for a plate of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks once you're done with the Harbor Hop.
We're still open 7 days a week beginning at 11 am, so Saturday isn't your only chance to get a taste of Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. If you're just in town for Harbor Hop weekend, we hope to see you on Saturday or Sunday. If you live in the lake area year-round, we hope to see you quite a few more times in the next couple of months. The more you come in, the more food items you get to try!
The Lake's #1 Creole Cuisine Restaurant, where you can expect a luxury, laid-back experience at Lake of the Ozarks!!
