Best Cajun: Shorty Pants


Best Cajun: Shorty Pants
When it comes to serving up the best Jambalaya, smothered catfish or crab cakes, Shorty Pants in Osage Beach has been hitting the mark for years.
Authentic creole cuisine on the water’s edge, the menu is straight out of New Orleans featuring rubs and spices from Louisiana. At the bar Cajun Bloody Marys and freshly-muddled mojitos are a customer favorite.
There’s always a great lineup of bands and entertainment throughout the summer, and a marina and full C-Store has everything you need for a day out on the Lake.
The restaurant is open daily at 11 a.m. in the summer.
