Lazy Dog Restaurant Peachtree Corners GA

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant known for its handcrafted American food and drink, will open its doors to the community of Peachtree Corners on Aug. 7 at 11am. The new Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is located in the Peachtree Corners Town Center at 5224 Peachtree Parkway.

Lazy Dog’s menu focuses on elevated dishes that highlight seasonal ingredients, as well as handcrafted cocktails and select beers from local breweries. Each restaurant welcomes guests into a warm ambiance that celebrates the majestic scenery and artisan authenticity of the Rocky Mountains. With a large fireplace, wood accents and cozy seating options, the décor is the perfect backdrop for Lazy Dog’s made from scratch meals and spending time with family and friends. Lazy Dog also offers brunch on the weekends, daily happy hour and late-night offerings.

“We are thrilled to join the Peachtree Corners community and bring our style of hospitality and delicious food to the neighborhood,” said Chris Simms, founder and CEO of Lazy Dog. “The team, the guests, and the community are the reason why we do what we do – to offer a dining experience that feels like family. We are excited to open our doors and introduce ourselves to the community.”

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is dedicated to the communities they serve. As part of the restaurant’s pre-opening festivities, Lazy Dog will be hosting private fundraising events to benefit Habitat for Humanity. A ribbon-cutting with the Peachtree Corners Business Association will take place on August 7 at 10:30am.

The Lazy Dog menu is dedicated to elevated comfort foods showcased on every plate, and served with warm, caring service in a rustic social setting. The menu features a combination of new seasonal dishes along with house favorites. They offer small plates such as:

  • Cowgirl cheese dip and pretzels, entrees such as shrimp and grits with housemade sausage and bell pepper gravy, wild boar chili with indigo cornbread fries,
  • Nashville hot portobello, a vegetarian take on the spicy Southern favorite,
  • lamb barbacoa tacos and
  • desserts including a carrot cake made with almond flour and pineapple buttercream frosting for those who are gluten sensitive, and apple-huckleberry open-face pie, all made in house.
  • Lazy Dog favorites include bacon-wrapped bison meatloaf, campfire pot roast, wok-fired calamari, seared ahi tuna salad, housemade butter cake, as well as an array of burgers, sandwiches, salads, shareable plates and more.

To complement the food, Lazy Dog’s bar program features a variety of handcrafted cocktails including the smoked maple bacon old fashioned with bacon-washed Tincup mountain whiskey and the hibiscus margarita with small-batch Lunazul tequila.

Designed to feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming escape, Lazy Dog’s grand interior will be complete with lodge-inspired furnishings such as cozy fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs, and artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State.

Multiple flat-screen TVs will be installed throughout the bar and patio areas so that guests may cheer on their favorite sports teams, and a dog-friendly patio. In other states, there are special menus for dogs featuring grilled meats and brown rice – however, the state of Georgia prohibits it. You’ll still get a bowl of fresh water.

Published

on

Miller's Ale House

Miller’s Ale House, a 7,000 square-foot restaurant, will soon break ground at its new location on Peachtree Parkway. The sports bar will be located on an out-parcel next to Taco Bell in the Peachtree Parkway Shopping Plaza. The north corner of the existing shopping center (where an existing emissions inspection station is located) will be razed for a parking lot for the restaurant. The new restaurant is part of a chain based in Orlando, Florida.

Town Center Townhomes: The first five of the 72 planned townhomes adjacent to the Town Green are now under construction. Foundations have been poured on the new 3-story brick townhomes which will offer three- and four- bedroom/3.5-bathroom floor plans. Features include brick exterior, two-car garages, gas fireplace and stainless-steel appliances, granite counter-tops in the kitchen. The development is named 5200 at Town Center. The sales office is located at the Stonington community located at 3544 Medlock Bridge Road. A full list of amenities and prices are included on the builder’s website.

The old Earth Fare is being converted to a Lidl location – Google Maps


Lidl, the German discount grocer, will open in the former Earth Fare space in the Interlochen Shopping Center at 5270 Peachtree Parkway. Work is currently underway in the 23,500 square foot space but the company has not yet announced an opening date for its new Peachtree Corners location. Along with fresh produce, the discount grocer sells meat and poultry, frozen foods, bakery items, health and beauty and household essentials. The first modern Lidl store opened in 1973 in Germany; today the company operates 10,800 stores in 32 countries including more than 70 stores in the United States.

My Favorite Holiday Foods & Desserts

Favorite Holiday Foods

We asked some local people what their favorites were for this holiday season

The Bramble Family
Kyra, Cliff, Stevie, Reid
Owner of Noble Fin

Peanut Butter Cookie Kisses

“One of the joys of making this dessert during the holidays is not the actual eating of these cookies, but the pure look of excitement in our kids’ faces. The excitement of gathering all of the ingredients, and the fun of pouring the ingredients into the bowl, making a mess and watching the kids be filled with so much excitement as the cookies get placed into the oven.”


Debbie Mason
Peachtree Corners
First Lady

While Debbie is involved with many of the city’s activities, including the Peachtree Corners Festival, she takes time to bake for her family. She shares this favorite holiday recipe.

Debbie’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

2 sticks butter, softened
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. In a different bowl, sift together the flour and baking soda. Then add the flour mixture, alternating with adding the sour cream, beginning and ending with flour. The batter should have taken on a different sheen when it’s ready. Add the vanilla and blend well. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 90 minutes. Enjoy!


Executive Chef Ken Hampton
Hilton Atlanta—Peachtree Corners

“I have been Executive Chef at the Hilton Atlanta—Peachtree Corners Hotel, known as the “Castle on the Hill,” for the past nine years, and I’ve seen tremendous growth in the area. Over the years, several local companies have held their holiday celebrations at our hotel. The holiday season is my favorite time of the year—I love to see the joy and happiness of our customers celebrating the season with co-workers and family.

“Our holiday collection this year includes Red Velvet Cheesecake with Bourbon Eggnog Crème, Warm Salted Caramel Vanilla Bean Cake with Peppermint Ice Cream, Cranberry Pumpkin Pie with Berry Coulis and Pearls Sugar Waffles with Mini Cider Donuts.”


Gina Solomon
Wesleyan Artist Market

Harvest Salad

“This is, hands down, a sure hit—even for those who typically do not enjoy a salad. The combination of sweet and savory is a crowd pleaser every time. Crisp green apples, toasted pecans and dried cranberries make it a seasonal specialty.”

● The salad ingredients include:
● mixed greens lettuce
● sliced red pepper
● cubed Granny Smith apples
● sliced red onion
● toasted pecan halves
● dried cranberries
● crumbled blue cheese
● salted bagel chips and
● homemade dressing of oil, apple cider vinegar, sugar, dried mustard and poppy seeds.


Jeanne Aulbach
Peachtree Corners City Council

Jeanne Aulbach

Jeanne likes to keep it basic. “Generally, if I’m hosting for the holidays, I just roast a turkey and fix some candied sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and succotash. No recipes needed!”


Chef Donte Youmans
Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in Peachtree Corners

Surf and Turf

If turkey isn’t your style, Chef Youmans has a suggestion: try a half-pound lobster tail and a 7-ounce applewood-smoked, bacon-wrapped filet seared over glowing embers of Firebirds’ 100% wood fired grill.

“Our Surf and Turf is a special entree combining a flavorful hand-cut filet with a juicy lobster tail grilled to perfection.”
