The Fortress Friday Night Barbecue

Executive Chef John Zehnder, CEC, AAC, HGT

Lazy summer nights, especially on Fridays, when you don’t want to cook but don’t want to get dressed up to go out somewhere fancy for dinner. Welcome to the Friday Night BBQ at The Fortress! We invite you to dine and relax in a casual setting while having a great barbecue dinner. Everything is set up under our shaded pavilion where cool evening breezes are part of the experience. Our remaining four barbecues will present “the best of the best” menus.

Kansas City BBQ features pork spareribs and slow smoked beef brisket plus corn on the cob, baked beans and potato salad.  On Steak Cookout Friday we grill New York strip steaks along with a baked potato bar, macaroni & cheese and strawberry shortcake.
Steak Night is always our most popular offering! Finally, the Hawaiian Festival BBQ – my personal favorite – spotlights a whole roasted pig along with grilled chicken and shrimp on skewers with pineapple mango salsa. So authentic some folks claim they hear ukulele music in the background.

Our chefs are firing up the grill every Friday through August 1st and we’d like to be part of your Friday night activities. Hours are from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Click here for full menus and for more information.
