I am a 50% local, as I spend about half of my time living at the lake. This is a drive-up or boat-up restaurant that is off the beaten path a little bit. Shorty Pants is one of three sister restaurants (Wobbly Boots and Dog Days are the other two) owned and ran by the same folks. All three restaurants... More

I had the red beans and rice - it was good, but a little too spicy for my taste. I wish they had a specific gluten free menu & the waitress wasn't very knowledgeable about food allergies. We had a very large group and they could have used another server. All in all, it is a nice place.

This is not your normal bar/lake food. The food is excellent, especially if you love cajun cuisine. You can travel by boat or land. Staff is friendly, they have music many nights during the summer, a large TV outside, very vacation feel. My husband and I eat there at least twice a week.

Good place on the water to meet friends, have a few drinks, and grab a sandwich or salad. Enjoyed the chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries.

Sat outside soaking up Autumn sun but were plagued with wasps and flies. Very Good Pinot Grigio. Food was average we had Shrimp PO, Caeser salad wrap, Shrimp Wrap they did not meet our expectations. The fish enjoyed them though. Waitresses could have been a bit more fun/bubbly.Fantastic place to people watch.

My family always loves to visit Shorty Pants when we are at the lake. Their food is incredible and has a southern twist as well as great burgers. I had the crab cakes appetizer and it was some of the best crab cakes I have ever eaten! They were served with a creamy sauce that was just delicious! Kids love... More

We stopped here on a Rainy Friday afternoon. The service was excellent, the food was great, I had the blackened chicken breast and my guy had the New Orleans Medley. Both were excellent. The best part however are the strawberry mojitos. I may have found a new favorite place for drinks!!!

Rainy day but we still wanted a water view for lunch. Food was awesome! Had Mahi tacos and shrimp and grits tacos. Yum! The red beans and rice side was spicy and good. Great view of the lake too. Highly recommend this place
