Love this place, go every time I visit on vacation. You can eat right on the water, but also has inside seating. Friendly service, delicious cajun type food. Highly recommend.

Get the crab cakes and you will not regret it! I do not like seafood, and I devoured the crab cakes. Delicious!

The restaurant is a nice location right on the lake. It's nice sitting near the water and feeding the fish the leftovers. The Alligator Eggs are delish but could be a little more crispier. The summer aide drink is refreshing and tasty. They also have...More

Pretty neat place to visit on the water. Lots of fish swimming in shallow water. Accessible by car or boat. Good food, friendly staff. Best outdoor fire pit.

Stopped by with friends for dinner early October. Things are quieter now and less busy. Food and service were good, but not remarkable. The salmon was good and so big our friend needed to take about half of it home. I had the creole chicken...More

So the thing about Shorty Pants that is undeniably awesome is that it's on the water, and if you can get a water-side table, you're very lucky. They have a marina that is filled with huge fish, ducks and all sorts of neat things you...More
