[CLOSURE ALERT] Succulent Seafood Restaurant Will Soon Sleep With the Fishes in Sandy Springs

A popular Sandy Springs seafood restaurant is closing.  Hammocks Trading Company, located at 7285 Roswell Road, announced via its Facebook page Friday that it will close as of Sunday July 31.  Owned by Here to Serve Restaurants veterans Jason Sheetz and William Sigley, Hammocks opened August 3, 2012.  The duo, via their Succulent Hospitality Group, will continue to operate Under the Cork Tree at The Prado in Sandy Springs and Prime 120 on Chambers Street in Downtown Woodstock.  

"After 10 wonderful years of celebrating Hammocks style we will set sail for something new in 2023. We are so thankful for the memories, relationships, and friends we have made.  We'd love to see you at our other restaurants Under the Cork Tree and Prime 120. We will be open through Sunday July 31 for lunch and dinner so we can see you at Hammocks at least one more time!" -Cheers! Jason and William

Hammocks' sizable menu featured primarily seafood, including oysters on the half shell, fresh fish and their award-winning grouper sandwich, voted "Best Sandwich in Atlanta" in 2014, but also crispy fried chicken and their Hammocks Smashburger.  

For several years until 2002, the building Hammocks occupied was home to an outpost of locally owned Caribbean restaurant Bridgetown Grill.  Across the street from Hammocks, the former North Springs Center, a vacant nine acre shopping center, was demolished earlier this year to make way for a new nearly 300 unit "luxury apartment" development from San Diego-based Fairfield Residential.

I haven’t had a chance to try Hammocks yet but have always been curious. Need to do so by 7/31! Great story as always, E.

I still miss Bridgetown Grill.

Been going there since it opened (and to On The Rocks, the other Taverny concept, and Bridgetown Grille when they were there). Food always good. Value over time has decreased. Even before COVID prices went pretty high pretty fast and I have no proof to this but it always felt like after Cork Tree opened the prices here went way up maybe to subsidize that effort. Nice people, nice owners. Will miss them. Probably sneak in for one more blackened grouper sandwich.
