Last Day of the Season:
Saturday, November 16
Don't waste any time being sad about Shorty Pants heading into the off-season. Instead, make plans now to get on over here as many times as possible before our winter break begins!
We'll still be opening at 11:00 am daily until our final day. That means plenty of lunches, dinners, and between-meal-snacktimes to enjoy before that day comes!
All Your Food Favorites
The best Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is where you'll find the most authentic Creole cuisine in mid-Missouri. We use rubs and spices direct from Louisiana and recipes that would make any New Orleans native proud. If you close your eyes, you just might think you're actually in the French Quarter instead of Missouri!
Of course, we are located in Osage Beach, so amazing Cajun isn't the only food we cook up to make your mouth water. You can order fresh seafood, savory steaks, signature sandwiches, juicy burgers, salads, wraps, tacos, and a whole lot more! For all of you return diners, you know the wonderful things to expect out of our kitchen. If you've never been here before, well, you'd better hurry on over soon!
Those Classic Cocktails Too
Our incredible menu items are a big draw but the delicious drinks our talented bartenders mix up on a daily basis are an excellent reason to make a trip to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina too. The Cajun Bloody Marys and freshly muddled Mojitos are very popular around here. Even though it's colder outside, one last frozen drink is tempting too.
To truly bring about the spirit of New Orleans, we offer an amazing classic Hurricane plus a long list of specialty Hurricanes that are all our own. The bar also carries an impressive wine list and the most refreshing beers in town. Come on in for a drink and raise a glass to another outstanding season!
Shorty Pants in the Off-Season
Even after November 16 is over and we're closed for the season, you can still enjoy some good old Shorty Pants cooking by hiring the best caterers at the Lake of the Ozarks for your holiday parties this winter!
Year-round, the Barrett Restaurant Group can cater all of your events, large and small, with the flavors of Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, Dog Days Bar & Grill, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Private event rooms are also available to rent at all three restaurants.
If you miss our gorgeous lake view, book a stay in one of our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront vacation rental houses and have it all to yourself! (Well, you and our neighbors, but they don't mind sharing that view!) The Glass House can easily host up to 8 guests and the Red House offers enough room for up to 16 people. Since they are right next door to Shorty Pants, they're centrally located to many of the best attractions, events, and shopping at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Please stop by soon and help us give Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina the seasonal send-off it deserves. On the warmer days, you can hang out on the deck enjoying that spectacular lake view. For the cold ones, we've got a nice fireplace for you to cozy up to and plenty of seating indoors where it's nice and warm. These last couple of weeks at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant are going to be a lot better if we get to spend them with you!
The Lake's #1 Creole Cuisine Restaurant, where you can expect a luxury, laid-back experience at Lake of the Ozarks!
