I loved sitting lakeside, drinking Ozark lemonade and taking in the Shorty Pants atmosphere. However, my food was disappointing. The "blackened chicken taco" wasn't blackened, or seasoned, at all. My husband had a similar experience with the gumbo. I'd give it a second chance, maybe just for drinks and appetizers, but can't say I was thrilled with my meal.

Great food, great place, enjoyable staff. The bar is a full one. They have most what you want to drink. Restaurant is right on the lake. You can feed the ducks. Great set up for groups ext. Menu is typical of the lake area and really good.

Husband had mahi mahi tacos, spicy and good. Salads were good. Service was good... More

While on a golf outing at the Lake, our group of six stopped at Shorty Pants for drinks and dinner. Our server was energetic and fun, and made several recommendations for food options. The drinks (margarita's & bloodymary's) were ok. The beer was cold, also. The burger selections were vast, and some in our group ordered varying options from their... More

My wife and I had dinner at Shorty Pants. It was recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. The service was very good (Sam was our server). We wife had the Jambalaya, I had a creole Quesadilla. Both were very good. The Lounge was on the water with great views, both indoor and outdoor seating. We will return.

First time visiting this place. Everyone seemed very nice food was good. We are not frequent visitors to Lake of the Ozarks so was not sure where to go, would definitely go here again. We visited in April it was crowded when we left but I am sure in the summer it is a very busy place as you can... More

This has become our favorite dinner/lunch spot at the lake! They have the best smoked wings and sooo many tropical drinks to enjoy while sitting lakeside!

The blackened salad with steak and the gumbo were very good. Sit outside and enjoy the scenery. Great spot to stop at.
