Don't waste your time being sad. Instead, make plans now to get on over to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina one more time this year (or a few more times) for all of the amazing things you're going to miss about us over the winter.
The best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks comes out of our kitchen, and it's full of authentic rubs and spices direct from Louisiana and made with recipes that any New Orleans native would be proud of! If you close your eyes after taking a bite, you just might think you're actually in the French Quarter instead of mid-Missouri.
The majority of our menu is filled with creative Creole cuisine. Some of our most popular dishes that keep bringing people back year after year include our Crab Cake Pasta, Smothered Catfish, Creole Quesadillas, great big Po Boy Sandwiches, and our New Orleans Medley which offers a taste of not just one but four of our famous menu items.
...and There's MORE!
Even though we're most well-known for our fantastic Cajun cooking, our diverse menu has quite a few non-Cajun dishes to offer too, so there's truly something for everyone! You'll find savory steaks as well as many signature sandwiches. We've also got a great selection of juicy burgers, succulent seafood, salads, wraps, tacos, and a lot more. Whether it's lunchtime, dinnertime, or snack time, you're sure to find something you'll love!
You don't want to go into the off-season without getting at least one more glass of your favorite Shorty Pants Lounge cocktail. A few of the legendary drinks we're popular for include freshly muddled Mojitos, Cajun Bloody Marys, fantastic frozen drinks, and a long list of New Orleans style Hurricanes. The bar also carries an impressive wine list and the coldest beer in town. Plenty of choices to whet your whistle!
That Fantastic Lake View
As long as the sun is out, it's still wonderfully pleasant to sit outside and enjoy our gorgeous lake view most days. When the chill of autumn is more than you're willing to bear, our smoke-free indoor dining room is warm, cozy, and filled with the sights and scents of our terrific Cajun creations.
Speaking of warm and cozy, don't forget about our awesome outdoor fireplace. The area is covered and there is a TV out there so you can keep an eye on whatever game happens to be playing while you're here.
Stay With Us This Winter
While the restaurant, bar, and marina take a break for the winter, our two amazing Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental houses are available for you to enjoy all year long. There are plenty of incredible things going on in the lake area during the off-season, and we've got the perfect place for you to stay while you're in town.
The Glass House can easily host up to 8 guests, and the Red House offers enough room for up to 16 people. Both offer all the comforts of home, a fantastic lake view, and are centrally located to many of the best attractions and events at the Lake of the Ozarks. You can check availability online and book your stay through our website.
The season's not over for our Lake of the Ozarks Cajun restaurant quite yet, but the end will be sneaking up on us before you know it. Please stop by and visit us at least one more time before Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina's last day for this season, Saturday, November 17, 2018. Let's end this year together because it's always more fun when you're here!
The Lake's #1 Creole Cuisine Restaurant, where you can expect a luxury, laid-back experience at Lake of the Ozarks!!
