Summer Road Trip 2019 at Kingfisher heads “Back East” (MENU)

Mighty fine eats from back east.

It’s the last specialty menu of the summer, and they’re headed to the east coast.

Kingfisher is serving up a “Back East” menu for its annual “Summer Road Trip” from Friday, August 16 – Sunday, September 1.

It’s the summer promotion’s 26th season and it’s been a lot of fun because it features a wide variety of appetizers, entrees, desserts, cocktails, and regional beverages — changing it out every few weeks throughout the season.

Take a look at Kingfisher’s “Back East” menu — which features seafood dishes like Maine Lobster and Grilled Sea Scallops —and consider which feast you’re going to try first. Also, be sure to make a reservation.
