With the new restaurant being less than a mile away from the original C&S in Vinings, this move will provide guests continued ease of accessibility in addition to a transformed interior design and a large outdoor terrace overlooking the six-acre park.

With established roots in the Atlanta community, C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar is known for its timeless, classic atmosphere focusing on pristine seafood and prime steaks of the widest variety. C&S Restaurant Group opened its first C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar location in Vinings in 2007. While the team is moving due to construction, C&S Restaurant Group is grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve the nearby community.

In a press release, owner Rich Clark explained, “I really didn’t want to relocate but I wasn’t given a choice. The landlord is razing the property and it would be too long of a gap to stay where we currently are, if that was even going to be an option. While the move is somewhat bittersweet, we are very excited to partner with Piedmont Office Realty Trust, owners of Galleria on the Park, and to be moving our flagship restaurant into such a uniquely activated environment. We could not ask for a better location as it is less than a mile from where we are currently and is also walking distance from The Cobb Energy Center, The Renaissance, The Galleria, The Battery, and Truist Park, not to mention the 5,000 plus people who come to work there daily.”

The new space will feature over 6,000 square feet of interior dining space, including 130 seats, a 20 person bar, a 50 person private dining room, and a wine room with a chef’s table for six. In addition to the main dining space, C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar is thrilled that the new location will showcase a large multi-level patio including a covered bar area for guests to enjoy.

Designed by Peter Zakas of Z-Space Design Inc., this C&S interior will carry a more elevated look than the classic identity of the Sandy Springs location which is known for its eye-catching materials, furniture, lighting, and millwork. The Galleria on the Park location will be different from anything else with a more refined feel, following the Art Deco style while leaving room for a more intimate yet approachable New York character with a blend of Miami Beach. Upon entering, guests can expect a suave, inviting atmosphere with warm two-toned millwork decorated with antique mirrors, hand blown glass as well as a bar and table tops with brass inlay.

Peter Zakas of Z-Space Design Inc says, “Opening the 8” tall porthole doors the patrons will enter with what we call “a sense of arrival” gazing straight ahead to the hostess and bar/dining room behind them in awe. Below their feet is a mosaic floor design reminiscent of the Chrysler building in NYC, warm wood millwork throughout, dramatic back bar with a gold hombre mosaic, sculptural ceilings, large deco chandeliers, booths, bar stools and chairs covered in stylish mohair and leather are just a few design elements amongst many.

Open for lunch Monday through Saturday, dinner seven nights a week, and brunch on Sunday, the menu will incorporate a wide variety of raw bar offerings, stand-out hors d’oeuvres, classic prime steaks, market fish and delicious entrée specials similar to the Sandy Springs location. Menu mainstays include RC’s Chargrilled Oysters, Clam Chowder, Lobster Roll, Plateaux De Fruits De Mer, Prime NY Strip and much more that patrons know and love.

C&S Restaurant Group will be opening their third location in Brookhaven, coming early summer of 2023. C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar, Brookhaven will be located in Alta Porter on Peachtree. C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar is proud to serve the community and reveal the new space to all of the excited guests that have followed them through the years.
