My go to sandwiches at seafood places are lobster rolls and blackened grouper sandwiches. They had 1 out of 2. It was really good. Cooked just right and the spices gave it a nice kick.

So if you are in Sandy Springs and need a good meal at an independent restaurant that obviously cares and are very conscientious about their product, check out Hammocks.
