Taste It All One Last Time... Until Next Spring!

Well, we've finally reached the final week of our 2019 season at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. Until that final day this Saturday, November 16, your favorite waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is open daily beginning at 11:00 am. Plenty of lunches & dinners in the next few days to get in one more taste of your favorite Cajun cuisine. Here are some popular menu items to tempt you even more. 

New Orleans Medley
Even though we offer many different types of dishes for your culinary enjoyment, we are most famous for serving the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks. For the diner that has trouble deciding on which dish to order, our New Orleans Medley offers you four of our very best all on one plate! You get creamy Crawfish Etouffee, rich Jambalaya, Red Beans & Rice, and a half-link of our Andouille Sausage. Make sure you attack this plate with a big appetite!

Crab Cakes
Our amazing handmade shrimp and lump blue crab meat cakes are an extremely popular menu item. They are rolled in our seasoned bread crumbs and topped with shrimp, then covered with a savory seafood cream sauce on the appetizer menu. As fantastic as they are on our own, when we place them on top of a bed of fresh fettuccine for our Crab Cake Pasta entree, the taste is elevated to a whole new level! 

Catfish is used often in Cajun cooking, plus it's delicious, so you will find it offered quite a few different ways on the menu at Shorty Pants Lounge. Catfish lovers are always very happy to discover the many options they have to choose from around here!
  • Catfish BLT
  • Catfish Po Boy
  • Catfish Dinner
  • Smothered Catfish (smothered in creamy Crawfish Etouffee!)

Po Boys
You can't run a Cajun restaurant without perfecting the Po Boy, and we believe we've done exactly that! One of the wonderful varieties we serve has already been mentioned above, but we've got even more for you to enjoy. In case you're not familiar with this fantastic sandwich, it's a French roll containing lettuce, tomato, homemade Cajun mayo, and one of the following meats:
  • Catfish (fried or blackened)
  • Fried Oysters
  • Fried Shrimp
  • Andouille Sausage (This one features our homemade remoulade sauce in place of Cajun mayo.)

Shrimp & Grits
A Cajun classic! This dish contains large shrimp that are sauteed with Andouille sausage, hickory-smoked bacon, onions, and mushrooms. That mouthwatering mix is served over a heaping helping of homemade Cheddar Cheese & Jalapeno Grits. 

We've also got another terrific version with our Shrimp & Grit Tacos, which place the famous jalapeno grits under shrimp, Andouille sausage, bacon, and a jalapeno lime sauce in a flour tortilla.

This is Louisiana's version of the doughnut. It makes an excellent dessert and an equally delicious appetizer. Our housemade sweet raspberry sauce is served with this perfectly deep-fried pastry tossed in powdered sugar. Great for sharing, but you may want to keep them all to yourself! 

We take the classic cocktail created in New Orleans and do it justice, plus we came up with a few of our very own variations on the delicious drink. Our freshly muddled Mojitos and Cajun Bloody Marys are also amazing, but there's something special about Hurricanes and Cajun food together. 

If you weren't already craving something from our Lake of the Ozarks Cajun restaurant, we're willing to bet your mouth is watering for it now! Join us sometime before the end of the day on Saturday, November 16, 2019, for one last "hurrah" before this season is over. 

Rest assured that Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina will be back again next spring to do it all over again! Also, if you find yourself craving our Cajun cooking before that, we still cater during the off-season through the Barrett Restaurant Group. Give us a call and make arrangements to bring the taste of Shorty Pants to you at your next party or event! 

The Lake's #1 Creole Cuisine Restaurant, where you can expect a luxury, laid-back experience at Lake of the Ozarks!
