Eat Dessert First - August Says So!

We just recently realized that August is "National Eat Dessert First Month." (We could have been doing that for two weeks already!) Dining on dessert first is really a great idea because after most people enjoy a plate full of the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks, there's little to no room left for it! 

When you eat dessert before the main meal, you get to enjoy the sweetest menu treats at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina that you don't always save space in your tummy for. Then, if you run out of room to finish your main meal, well, you've got leftovers to savor tomorrow. Win-win! 

We've got three taste-tempting dessert options on the menu at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant & bar. Here's a closer look at those. 

Also known as "Louisiana's doughnut", beignets are a favorite in the French Quarter. Thanks to the talented kitchen crew at Shorty Pants Lounge, this is a favorite dish in mid-Missouri too! 

A beignet is a perfectly deep-fried pastry tossed in powdered sugar. We serve our version with a side of house-made sweet raspberry sauce to make them even more irresistible. After just one bite, this will be a new staple in your diet every time you dine with us!

Bananas Foster
Great care goes into making this taste-tempting dessert both look and taste phenomenal! First, we cut up fresh bananas into thick slices. Those are sauteed in our Cruzan Black Strap Rum sauce until the two meld together irresistibly. Once ready, it's all topped with cold vanilla bean ice cream and presented to you for enjoyment. 

Chocolate Bayou Cobbler
This decadent Hershey's chocolate experience is baked with a scrumptious, golden crust on top. Before bringing it out to you, we add rich vanilla bean ice cream and creamy whipped cream. This is a must-try, so if you don't think you'll be able to save room, eat dessert first!

"Liquid" Dessert
Another "dessert" option is to order one of the sweet treats from our bar. There are plenty of drinks to choose from that fit this description; Rum Runners, Pina Coladas, Mudslides, and more. Also, our long list of Hurricanes is full of fantastic flavors that are definitely worth giving a try. 

There's a popular saying that goes, "Life is short. Eat dessert first!" So, have we convinced you to do that? Before the meal, after the meal, or hey, even during the meal, we truly suggest you give at least one of the desserts at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina a try soon.
