Atlantic Grill, a pub with an expansive outdoor dining space, has a new owner after 16 years.
Sean Bishop, a long-time Atlanta and Atlantic Station resident, purchased the Atlantic Station staple this summer with plans to upgrade the interior and exterior, introduce new menu items and engage the community through weekly events. The renovations will be complete in early 2022, according to a press release.
Bishop has lived in Atlantic Station with his husband Reggie since the neighborhood opened in 2005. As a regular Atlantic Grill customer, he discovered the opportunity to obtain ownership after the previous owner, Paul Sachetti, announced he was looking to retire. Bishop officially purchased the restaurant in May and kicked off renovations earlier this summer.
“Atlantic Station is my home,” Bishop said. “I’m honored to have been given the opportunity to become engrained even further within the community by owning a landmark like Atlantic Grill.”
Renovation plans for the restaurant include new interior and exterior paint, upgraded flooring, modern light fixtures, restroom improvements and new TVs and sound systems. The overall branding of the restaurant will also be updated, while keeping the Atlantic Grill name and pub theme. An elevated seasonal menu with weekly drink specials will also be introduced and changed quarterly.
“Atlantic Grill is a favorite in the Atlantic Station community with an incredibly loyal following,” said Kristie Ray, Retail Director at Atlantic Station. “We look forward to seeing what’s to come of Atlantic Grill.”
Atlantic Grill is now open Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday until 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 10 p.m., with brunch on Sundays beginning at 11:30 a.m.
