Fun place but service questionable

We showed up in April. Place half full of regulars / people getting off work. Slow season for vacationers at this point. Got seated right away. Sat outside with a view of the lake. Hostess gave us menus to review. Then we waited 15 minutes before waitress even came to take our drink... read more

What a great place to unwind after a long day of classroom studies. We enjoyed the hospitality that was shown while we were there. The food was wonderful and all of the people there dining were very friendly, as if they had known us forever. We WILL be back to dine with you again.

The food is Cajun and tasty. Wife had their shrimp dinner. I had shrimp and grits. There were lots of onion and peppers and mushrooms. Sausage too.Corn bread was good too. But most of it went to feeding the ducks and fish who were right below the dock where we were seated.

We loved the food offering and quality of Shorty Pants. Good drinks for the value and great service! Fun to watch the boats come in and out.

My visit to Shorty Pants was wonderful! I ordered the Peach Margarita (which was a yummy treat!) my friend and I split the AMAZING crab spinach dip. The only downside to this visit was that the BBQ Chicken sandwich I ordered was not very appetizing. Other than that the view, dinning experience and company were wonderful!

This is a great bar. This is not a great restaurant. If you stick to the bar food its OK. Tried the Chicken gumbo again and it was awful! The hamburger and fried oyster sandwich was good. The bar food is usually good. Beer is cold and the view is great!

Easily the worst dining experience I've ever had. I am especially upset with management to 1) allow a new server to serve her first day without a shred of oversight, 2) let another server stand in as an "on-duty manager" and receive my complaint. I'll spare you the play-by-play. The bottom line is this: The good food will be drowned... More

Food is good and restaurant is located right on the water with a nice patio area. Enjoy the lake while dining or having a cocktail.
