It's a bar.......that happens to serve food. The bands seem to be on the cheesy side of wedding an dance bands. Think big curly perms and mullets singing a variety of dance tunes from the 60's ( mustang sally) to the 90's (This is how we do it) with a heaping helping of 70 and 80's funk. We were there...

Late Friday afternoon on the deck of a local restaurant bar. Not many people, so the music was pretty loud sitting outside. BUT our waiter was extremely helpful and very pleasant. The margarita was awesome! I tried the dark cherry rum with lemonade, which was tasty; reminded me of cherry coke flavor/couldn't really taste the lemonade. Both were good for... More

I visited here during my trip to Osage Beach recently and let me tell you, the food was soooo good! First, we got seating next to the lake. We had a ball watching the competition between the ducks and the catfish racing for food being dropped by various people onto the water. One duck and catfish got into a tug... More

Excellent food. First and foremost, they have really good food. Po boys, dinner plates, curly fries, and my favorite fried green tomato BLT. Neat location right on the water with docks and massive fish that you can watch while you eat and feed them (and the ducks). This is a must when we are at the lake.

Great late night dinner - try the Shrimp and Grits tacos - totally worth it! We will definitely be back.

Shorty Pants has a perfect opportunity to wow the crowd because of the location. Evening time provides a great view of the lake and relax atmosphere. Unfortunately, SL doesn't capitalize on this opportunity with great food. The food is average and portions are OK but if they put a bit more effort into their food this place could be excellent....

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 and I ate here on a slow Tuesday night. I had Crab Cake pasta, crab cakes were good and shrimp was in the sauce however, pasta tasted like it had been sitting in water and some of the water was in the dish, no flavor.
