If you close your eyes after sinking your teeth into one of the many Cajun creations served at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant, your taste buds will have you believing that you're dining in the middle of Bourbon Street rather than lakeside in Osage Beach!
The talented chefs at Shorty Pants Lounge use only the most flavorful rubs and spices direct from Louisiana. You'll find all of the Creole cooking staples in our recipes - rice, sausages, seafood, and vegetables - alongside lots of other delicious ingredients, put together masterfully for your dining pleasure.
There are amazing Cajun dishes throughout our entire menu, from appetizers to entrees and from sandwiches to side dishes (dessert too!) but one section in particular that exemplifies what we can do is our Bourbon Street Eats menu.
