Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is Back on March 5, 2021

So, did you miss us? Everyone here at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina in Osage Beach is definitely missing all of you but the long winter wait is almost over! Opening Day 2021 for our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has been set for Friday, March 5. Make plans right now to join us next week for all of those tasty Cajun flavors you love so much. 

Of course, the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks is just a part of all of the wonderful things you'll find at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marins. It's been a while since last fall, so here's a quick reminder of what to expect when you join us once again this season.

Amazing Cajun Food & Drinks

The folks in the kitchen are anxious to start cooking up all of your Cajun favorites this season! You'll be able to join us for lunch and dinner 7 days a week beginning daily at 11:00 am. Get your taste buds ready for plates full of Crawfish-N-Shrimp Etouffee, Po Boy Sandwiches, our World Famous Crab Cakes, and a whole lot more! (Is your stomach rumbling yet just thinking about it?) 

Our bartenders will have their own tastes of New Orleans for you at the bar too. That Cajun Bloody Mar is an irresistible classic around here and the many varieties of Hurricanes we've created will keep your thirst quenched in the most marvelous of ways!  

Beyond the Cajun Cooking

Although we're widely known as the best Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, our talented chefs are not limited to just that. The menu also features savory steaks, fresh salads, delicious seafood, incredible sandwiches, wraps, and burgers, plus a fantastic kids' menu. 

As for drinks, you'll find all of your favorite frozen cocktails to enjoy while dining lakeside. We also carry a wonderful variety of ice-cold beers and an amazing wine list. No matter what you are thirsty for, our fully-stocked bar can take care of it! 

Incredible Live Music

The outdoor stage at Shorty Pants Lounge hosts the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. Discover a wonderful mix of soothing sounds to enjoy during dinner and on into a lovely lake evening along. The fantastic bands we host are very likely to have you on the dance floor all night long. The finishing touches are being put onto our 2021 music schedule but once it's complete, you can always find an updated list on our website. 

Full-Service Gas Dock & Marina

Just down the dock from the restaurant, you'll find the best gas dock & marina at the Lake of the Ozarks. In addition to being a great place to fuel your boat, Shorty Pants Marina also contains a fully-stocked convenience store with all the things you might need for a day out on the water. When you're ready for a pit stop during your day of boating, this is also where you'll find the cleanest restrooms on the lake. (A very important fact to know!) 

If you're in need of a place to park your boat or personal watercraft while you're in town, we have covered dock slips available from sizes 14x36 up to 20x56. Marina amenities include showers, washer/dryers, free WiFi and electric, free ice, and gated parking. If you're interested, please give us a call to find out what is available.   

Waterfront House Rentals

Located right next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina are two of the best waterfront vacation rental houses at the Lake of the Ozarks. (BTW, these are both available to rent year-round, even when Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is closed for the season!) 

The Glass House features 1,500 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 8 guests comfortably. The Red House offers 3,400 square feet to enjoy and can house up to 16 guests. Both rentals have an unbelievable lake view plus all the comforts of home for groups both large and small. They feature gorgeous decks, a full kitchen, BBQ grill, washer/dryer, and spacious rooms for everyone to enjoy.

Click the links above or visit our website for additional details, rates, and availability. The best dates book up fast, so if you're planning a Lake of the Ozarks vacation this summer, it's best to book sooner than later!  

Now that we've reminded you of everything our lakeside restaurant, bar, & marina at the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer, we're willing to bet you're missing us even more than when you started reading this! Hang in there just a little bit longer. Friday, March 5, 2021, will be here before you know it and we'll all be hanging out at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina once again, just like old times. Oh, and if you've never been here before, well, we can't wait to meet you!

Winter Fun At the Lake of the Ozarks You Don't Want To Miss!

Once spring 2021 finally gets here (which lands on Saturday, March 20), you know there will be all kinds of fun things to enjoy in the lake area, including hanging out at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina with us! (We usually open back up early in March, so be sure to keep an eye on our social media pages for an exact date!)

Until then, there are still lots of fun annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks for you to participate in. Below we've featured a few of those dates. If you'll be coming from out of town, it's best to book your stay in one of our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront vacation house rentals sooner rather than later so you've got a great place to stay while you're here! 

Shorty Pants Vacation Rental Houses

Our waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks has two amazing vacation houses for rent right next door. They come with all the comforts of home and are centrally located to all the fun and excitement that the lake area has to offer year-round. 

The Glass House offers 1,500 square feet of living space and can easily house up to 8 guests. The Red House boasts 3,400 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 16. Both offer plenty of room to bring the whole family along or a large group of friends for a relaxing winter stay at the lake. Both houses have an amazing lake view with large decks to sit on and admire it from. (Of course, if it's too cold while you're here, the view is just as beautiful through the windows!) 

A Few Fun Reasons to Visit the Lake Area 

Valentine's Day
February 14, 2021

The holiday of romance falls on a Sunday this year, which means you might as well make an entire weekend celebration out of it! Cuddling up by the fireplace or cozying up together to enjoy that gorgeous wintertime lake view are excellent activities for this type of private getaway. Currently, both of our rental houses are available this weekend but don't wait too long to book one!   

Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl Passport Weekend
February 19-21, 2021

The Lake Pub Crawl is always an exciting weekend to be in the lake area and this year, instead of just one night to enjoy the festivities, they have extended the party to last three entire days and nights! Due to COVID safety concerns, no busses will be running this year so they are allowing everyone an extended period of time to check-in at every stop. 

This will be done via a mobile app, which will be available in early February. The more stops you hit, the more chances you'll have to win big prizes! For more information and to find a list of venues and transportation options for the weekend, visit www.LakePubCrawl.com.

Home, Business, & Lake Living EXPO

Discover a diverse selection of products and services for business, home, personal, and lake living. Learn more by visiting www.CamdentonChamber.com.   

Polar Plunge
February 27, 2021

Swimming in the lake all summer long is a highlight of a vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks. In the winter, well, not so much. Unless that is, it's for a good cause! 

This annual plunge into the icy cold lake is a family-friendly event that benefits Special Olympics Missouri. If you're brave enough to plunge or just want to watch other people in crazy costumes do it, visit the SOMO website event page.   

Lake of the Ozarks Eagle Days
March 6, 2021

Many majestic eagles call the Lake of the Ozarks home. This event honors that with sightseeing and programs presented by the World Bird Sanctuary and the Dickerson Park Zoo. You can find a full schedule of events at www.LakeOfTheOzarksEagleDays.com

Lake of the Ozarks St. Patrick's Day Parade
March 13, 2021

If you've never attended a St. Patrick's Day weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks, you've been missing out on a season-opening celebration like no other! This is the time of year when many of the seasonal spots (like your favorite Cajun restaurant & marina at the Lake of the Ozarks) are back open and ready to start an exciting new year of fun. Start the day with the parade on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip, then head our way for delicious food and more weekend excitement.  

If you do happen to book a stay with us this winter, be sure to check out our sister restaurant Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. They serve the most amazing hickory-smoked BBQ you've ever tasted, among other delicious dishes. (Including a fantastic Po Boy Sandwich a whole lot like the one we serve here at Short Pants Lounge each summer!) 

As we mentioned earlier, keep an eye on our social media for updates on exactly which date in March we'll be opening the doors for our 2021 season. Until then, pick a date to book one of our waterfront rental houses this winter and grab it up before someone else beats you to it! (While you're at it, it's not too early to book dates for this spring and summer too. The best ones go fast!) Enjoy your winter and we'll see you again real soon.
