Amazin' Cajun & More
Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant is famous for the authentic Cajun creations that come out of our kitchen. We are able to offer foods that make you feel like you're in the French Quarter rather than mid-Missouri because we use only the tastiest rubs and spices direct from Louisiana! Among our most popular Cajun menu items are those World Famous Crab Cakes, Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, the Creole Quesadilla, great big Po Boy sandwiches, and incredible Jambalaya.
Even though Creole cuisine is our specialty, we still have lots of traditional favorites without the Cajun twist on our menu too. You'll find prime rib burgers, savory steaks, fresh salads, delicious seafood, incredible sandwiches and wraps, and even a kids' menu the little ones cannot resist. This summer you'll most likely want to dine outside to take in our gorgeous lake view, but when the weather isn't quite pleasant enough for that, we have plenty of seating inside too plus a wonderful covered patio complete with a cozy fireplace for those chilly spring evenings.
Your Favorite Drinks
You'll find just as much attention to detail in the delicious drinks we mix up behind the bar as those amazing food items that come out of the kitchen. The Cajun Bloody Marys and muddled Mojitos are always popular, and we have a long list of classic (& not-so-classic) Hurricanes available in true New Orleans fashion. You can also enjoy a wonderful selection of wines, ice-cold beers, and those fantastic frozen drinks that are a must when you're in the lake area.
The Best Live Music
The best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks can be heard from our outdoor stage. You will find a wonderful mix of soothing sounds to enjoy during dinner and on into a lovely lake evening along with bands that will have you on the dance floor all night long. We are currently putting the finishing touches on our 2019 schedule, but we'll have it up on the "Events & Entertainment" page of our website very soon.
Incredible Marina & C-Store
Located on the 21 MM in Salt Hollow Creek, just down the dock from Shorty Pants Lounge, you'll find the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks - Shorty Pants Marina. In addition to fuel, the fully stocked convenience store offers everything you might need for a day out on the water. You'll find boat supplies such as oil, flags, and more, plus you can also pick up other necessities you may have forgotten to pack like suntan lotion, deodorant, paper towels, and similar items. The c-store also has ice, snacks, soft drinks, package liquor, and some great Shorty Pants souvenirs like koozies, shirts, hats, sunglasses, and more.
If you're in need of a place to store your boat, we have covered dock slips available from sizes 14x36 up to 20x56. Marina amenities include showers, washer/dryers, free WiFi and electric, free ice, gated parking, and access to the cleanest restrooms on the lake.
