Manny's Backyard

In Shorts, The Backyard Is Ready to Party.

With a full bar and lots of delicious food options, hop off the boat or your bike and keep the good times rolling. Backyard seating at tables and the bar are first come, first serve. Our huge patio space is open and inviting, yet nestled in the woods like it’s always been there.

Retractable awnings over our bar area will protect you from the rain or sun, and open up when the weather’s nice. You can warm your toes at one of the many fire pits, and we’ll keep you cozy on those cool summer nights with permanent heaters installed throughout.

Live Music

It’s Lake O’clock Somewhere, And That’s Usually Here

With local singer-songwriters, that bluegrass band from down the road, or the occasional larger touring act, our backyard stage keeps the tunes flowing all summer long.  

There’s nothing like it; music being made live, on the spot, while enjoying an old-fashioned fireside or tossing cornhole bags with a beer in your hand.
