Appetizers So Amazing You'll Want To Try Them ALL!

Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is famous for serving the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks but our extensive menu also contains lots of other equally delicious dishes. Today we're taking a closer look at one of our menu sections and it just seemed sensible to start with the "Starters!" There you'll find a lot of variety like Creole cuisine, seafood, wings, and more!

A bountiful blend of Andouille sausage, crawfish, and shrimp with pepper jack cheese plus sauteed peppers and onions.

Our house-smoked wings are served in orders of 10 or 20 in your choice of the following:
  • Original
  • Extra Hot
  • Garlic Parmesan

Slow-smoked pulled pork, Turbodog cheese sauce, and red beans piled high on corn tortilla chips and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapenos.

Seared Ahi Tuna
A 6-oz. sesame encrusted Sashimi style Ahi tuna served with sesame ginger dressing and a wasabi cream sauce. 

We are now able to offer dockside dining on our lakeside decks! With the state of the country as it is right now, we realize that many people prefer to stay at home as much as possible to avoid crowds. That doesn't mean you have to miss out on all of your favorite Shorty Pants Lounge favorites though! (You know you've been craving them all winter long!) 

Give us a call at (573) 302-1745 and we're happy to pack up your food to go so that you may enjoy it at home. You can view the Shorty Pants Lounge menu online through our website. Carry-out plus curbside and dockside pick-up are all available! Keep yourself healthy now and we'll all get together to celebrate once all this is over.

The Restaurant & Marina Are Open! Get All Your Cajun Favorites To-Go

We simply couldn't deprive you of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks any longer, so Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina in Osage Beach is open for business once again. The only difference from before is that, for the time being, you have to get it to go. On the bright side, you can get it both by land and by lake! 

Shorty Pants To-Go, Curbside AND Dockside!
A bonus of being a waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks is that you can get to us by car and by boat. It's an excellent chance to get out of the house for a bit and either enjoy a scenic drive or a relaxing boat ride with the prize of all your Shorty Pants menu favorites when you get here! 

Currently, we're serving food daily from 11:00 am-9:00 pm. You can check out the Shorty Pants Lounge menu online, pick out something delicious to look forward to and then give us a call at 573-302-1745 to place the order. 

So, what have you been missing most? Our Creole Quesadilla, Sweet Coconut Shrimp, Po Boys, Smothered Catfish, Jambalaya, Crab Cake Pasta, Shrimp & Grits, Crawfish & Shrimp Etoufee... Woah... that's making us hungry! 

Once your order is placed, next comes that beautiful trip we talked about earlier (the lake area is blooming & gorgeous right now!) When you arrive, simply let us know that you're here and we'll bring your freshly prepared order out to your car or boat.   

Fuel Up At Shorty Pants Marina
Yes, that's right, the best gas dock & marina at the Lake of the Ozarks is back open too! After all, you're going to need fuel and boating supplies if you're going to be heading our way by boat. 

A few of the marina amenities are limited until things get "back to normal," but you can get the gas you need (87 Octane, 93, Octane, & Diesel) and maybe even a few essential items for your day on the water. You can reach the marina at 573-302-1004.  

Sure, things are a little weird right now but as long as we're all safe and healthy once it's over, it will all be worth it. Then, we'll get together once again on Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina's lakeside deck to enjoy a meal, some incredible live music, and a few drinks together. Until then, we'll keep you stocked up on all your Cajun food favorites through our curbside and dockside pickup at the Lake of the Ozarks
