[EXCLUSIVE] New Seafood Restaurant to Surface Soon in Tucker

We have received several questions about the former Major League on Northlake Parkway in Tucker.  The building, which before Major League was built as an Olive Garden, is currently undergoing renovations to become Katch Kitchen & Cocktails, a local establishment.  

Work on the exterior of the building picked back up in recent weeks after being slowed, reportedly, by the need to comply with The City of Tucker's standards requiring windows.    

According to DeKalb property records, the existing building (2077 Northlake Parkway) is about 8,500 square feet and sits on about an acre.  Further research indicates that the new establishment is being opened by Kina Jackson, owner of 656 Sports Bar & Grille, a restaurant and bar on Pryor Street close to Center Parc Stadium (formerly Turner Field).  

Sources tell us that the restaurant and bar will have a seafood focus but it's worth mentioning that despite the similar name, the restaurant is unrelated to "The Big Ketch," a seafood restaurant in Buckhead that's part of Southern Proper Hospitality Group.   

When Katch does open, hopefully sometime during the first half of 2023, it will join Bambinelli's which relocated this past June to the former O'Charley's near LA Fitness, just off Northlake Parkway.  

#ICYMI  In other neighborhood news, Five Guys plans to open in the empty space between Verizon Wireless and Chick-fil-A in the outparcel of Northlake (Tower) Festival, Newk's Eatery plans to reopen January 2 in Tucker Meridian under new ownership and management, and K Pot Korean BBQ & Hot Pot plans to open in early 2023 in the onetime Blockbuster at Northlake (Tower) Festival. 

Are you excited for the opening of Katch Kitchen & Cocktails?  Have you been to 656 Sports Bar & Grille?  What type of restaurant would you most like to see open in the Northlake area?

Please share your thoughts below.

Anything "Kitchen & Cocktails" will most likely be more tacky flash than substance & service.

Positive news. It seems for a while the City of Tucker struggled with how to balance the growth of the Northlake area, Main Street and the Hugh Howell/Publix area. Seems like they are seeing some good progress, so let's hope the local residents support the growth they asked for.

What space is between Verizon Wireless and Chick-fil-A in the outparcel of Northlake (Tower) Festival? Are they not right next to one another?

@Anon RE: space,

The space is between CFA and adjacent to Verizon (in the same building) and was previously part of Verizon before they downsized.

Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks for your readership and Happy Holidays!

Great news for Tower Festival.
But big leap from sports bar to one-off upscale seafood in a somewhat hidden location. I'll give Katch a year before closing.

Not so fresh seafood. Tucker isn’t exactly a coastal city. And with the “supply chain issues”
( except for Covid tests and supplies) I can’t see it being able to get fresh. Fuck all you stupid democratic libtard fuck stains!

I’d love to see a Sprouts come into the previous Publix space.
Best of luck to the above mentioned businesses. Make Tucker proud!!

It would be nice to have a really great vegetarian and/or vegan restaurant options in the Tucker area. Ex: Slutty Vegan. They have other locations in Georgia, Alabama and New York.

I love seafood so looking forward to the new place. Also happy to hear of a new Five Guys and very glad to hear Newk’s is coming back - we love that place and thought it was a great location

Cracker Barrel, Stuckeys, Sweetwater Brewery or Liquid Nation Brewery, Alon’s Bakery, Krispy Kreme, Felini’s Pizza, and a signature restaurant by one of the great chefs of Atlanta. To make any of these happen we need upscale apartment and condominium developments.

Hi there. Was reading all your comments so far and paying serious attention to your opinions, until I came to this part. I don't really know who you are attacking, since I'm not a bit interested in politics and for that reason don't care to vote. I found all your comments well written, and deserving attention... UNTIL I CAME TO THAT PART (above)... what's going on? You had someone actually reading and listening to what you are saying, until it went haywire...
Don't think I'll be reading any more of your comments, for that simple reason.

I am polite, considerate, feel everyone can have an opinion, but I don't believe in violent cussing...it only means you will not listen to me if and when I have an opinion, whatever it may be, if it does not fit in with your opinion/s and political leanings.

We are not savages here. We are a civilized nation. We are supposed to be "the most advanced society", at least we think we are. I am wondering.

Thanks for your erudite and cordial addition to the thread. I hope you get well soon.

Tucker loves seafood. Red Lobster is busy all the time and if this owner has experience in the business, she is sure to be successful! Welcome to Tucker!

Sounds like another gathering place for thugs with a thin veneer of respectability.

Let’s hope it turns out to be a great place for Tucker. We need more options for lunch.

Are you meaning Black people? Your statement is unclear. You should tell us how you really feel.
