In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar, which first opened in 2016 as C&S Chowder House and was rebranded in 2019, has permanently closed.
The restaurant’s last day, at 12040 Etris Road, was Friday, May 15, 2020.
Co-owners Rich Clark and Jon Schwenk announced the news in a press release, citing an “unprecedented circumstance” for the closure without directly mentioning the coronavirus outbreak.
“We’ve been in the business for a long time and it’s never easy to make this kind of decision, but due to the unfortunate series of events we know this is ultimately what’s best,” Clark said.
“Although the situation is less than ideal, we could not be more thankful for the support we’ve received from our cherished staff, neighbors, and loyal patrons throughout this journey and we look forward to the exciting chapters to come.”
The restaurant isn’t going away for good, however.
Parent company C&S Restaurant Group is keeping plans to open a C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar in Sandy Springs’ Modera complex in fall 2020.
Two additional eateries under the C&S umbrella, C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar and Hugo’s Oyster Bar, also remain in business.
C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar Roswell is one of many Atlanta-area restaurants to pull the plug amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
