Quick Glance At Hammocks Trading Company

It’s a Seafood restaurant. Not a hammock company. Once you get past the name, you are likely to find the best new restaurant in Sandy Springs. At least that’s what we found.

Hammocks Trading Company opened off Roswell Road between Abernathy Road and Northridge Drive on August 3. The restauranteurs behind the restaurant have some impressive resumes. Chef William Sigley spent years in Vegas before moving to Atlanta to open Aquaknox. He would later become Executive Chef at Bone’s and Aja before joining forces with Jason Sheetz to open Hammocks Trading Company. Sheetz comes from Here to Serve Restaurant Group where he was general manager of Twist.

My wife and I decided to try the restaurant tonight after I mentioned the Sunday Alaskan Snow Crab Legs special ($15.95) to her. I’ll admit that I’m not a big seafood person but my wife loves it and there are few people whose opinion I trust more than hers when it comes to seafood.

We were very impressed with the prices. Small plates range from $4.50 to $8.50, A dozen oysters are $11, and entrees are less than $20. We went with a half dozen oysters, Alaskan Snow Crab Legs, garlic smashed potatoes, corn and house made jalapeno cornbread. Plus a Sweetwater IPA for me (a couple decent craft beers). My wife loved the crab legs and felt that the oysters were really good for the price. The garlic smashed potatoes were honestly the best I’ve ever had. The jalapeno cornbread was the only menu item that we didn’t care for but we really enjoyed our meal.

If you live in Sandy Springs or near the area, I highly recommend you check it out. Hammocks Trading Company is located at 7285 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, Ga. 30328.

    I absolutely agree about Hammocks Trading Company in Sandy Springs. We’ve been there for dinner a number of times, and the food is consistant, the servers are pleasant, the prices very reasonable. It’s easy to make coming to HTC a habit, you’ll not be disappointed, and the owners, Jason Sheetz, and Chef William, well I think they are quite special, they are very attentive to their clientele. Tonight, both actually came to our table, how sweet is that!

  2. Thanks for all of the kind words. Was great to meet you! I just changed over to the fall menu so there are plenty of NEW options for you to try! Hope to see you again soon! Cheers! Chef William…
