Shorty Pants is our go-to place for on the water dining at the lake. Their cajun food is delish - hubby adores their gumbo and their red beans/rice. They often have a good soup of the day, and they have awesome drinks! It can get pretty busy, but the service is usually good.

Opting for a non-chain lunch spot on a lazy Saturday, we followed the highway signs to Shorty Pants (a fun name like that - we gotta try this place). The side road going in took us past lake houses that ranged from quirky to scary, but once we arrived, we sensed we'd found the right place. Directly on the lake,... More

A great on and off season place. The food was good, drinks cold and service was fantastic. This has a lot of good qualities. The staff seems to be well trained and focused on making my visit the best it could be.

This is the closest waterfront bar to Tan-Tar-A resort being just a short 7 minute drive away. Their menu has typical bar food with a lot of cajun options. It is fun to watch boats pull up or drive by. The service is usually poor, the girls who work here are complete ditzes and very inattentive. It is a great... More

We sat outside overlooking the marina and ducks and fish. Was a delightful evening. Our waitress was a bit underwhelming, but we managed to get our orders eventually. She did not check back and we would have loved to order another round of beer. Shrimp po boy and apps were good. Will be back next season. Hope they train new... More

We don't drink so I can only speak for the food. It was delicious! Lots of Cajun dishes. We have liked every selection we've made so far. Although this asks for only one date visited we have been there with family and friends many times over the last 18 months.

Loud patrons were cursing at the bar - my 11 year old was at our table & heard every word. This was at 6 pm & unacceptable. Our server was absent for 10 minutes after dropping off our menus. My fish arrived - it was dry & overlooked. Won't be back.

Ate lunch here before leaving for home. Had a frozen drink and didn't like it. I make better at home. The food was ok but not anything special. The food is very spicy! The area you drive by on the way to here looks shabby and a little scary. Would not go back!
