Had a great meal in the off season, nice time to go. So this place is not just for boaters. The food was better than bar food and the Cajun influence is nice. The specialty sides were great such as the bourbon carrots and the red beans and rice. I plan on going again just to try out the extensive... More

This place was packed on Sunday night. Went to eat and have a few drinks at 8ish. There was an hour wait. The service was great but the food was bland and not what I expected. Probably the worst catfish I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was great though.

This restaurant was recommended buy our host where we stayed. Service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. A wide variety of menu items so we made sure to select something different so we can try each others. This place is on our list to return to in the future.

Heard great reviews about Shorty Pants. The day was a little on the chilly side so we chose to sit under a covered area with a large beautiful fireplace.

We ate at Shorty Pants on a Thursday evening. When we arrived around 5:30 the place was empty. Since it was our first time, we were a little nervous about the food. However, no need to be! My daughter had the gumbo and jambalaya - loved it! My husband had the pork tacos with red beans and rice-loved it. And,... More

Good bar food, good atmosphere, and the view of the marina is to die for. I wish I drove my boat in instead of the car. Next time....

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.

Thank Megan R
