First Gateway Station Business Set to Open March 4

Top Dawg Tavern will be the first business to open inside the new development.

The first business to open inside Gateway Station, a 14,000-square-foot development along Ga. Highway 316, is set to welcome patrons in March. 

Wayne Bartlett with Maynard and Bartlett Realty Group in Winder said Top Dawg Tavern, a sports bar, is scheduled to open March 4. The business will be joined inside the development by a podiatrist's office, a nail salon, a mattress and furniture store and a Mexican restaurant.

The podiatrist, Dr. Jonnica Dozier, signed a lease for suite 200 last year. 

Bartlett said that while plans for a Longhorn Steakhouse location in the area have been pushed back, he still expects the restaurant to build at the Gateway site.

"(Eight to 10) serious retailers/restaurants are in talks with us now," Bartlett said in an e-mail. 

A total of 160 acres along Exchange Boulevard are earmarked for grocery, retail, restaurant, office and medical space within Gateway at University Parkway. Bartlett confirmed in October a Varsity restaurant will be built in front of the movie theater, Gateway Cinemas 12.

I would like if we had: a Kroger w/ gas station, New Balance Shoes, Red Lobster, Quik-Trip, IHOP, Victoria Secrets, Bath & Body. Barrow could also use some additonal family entertainment such as, a Bowling Alley,Dave & Busters, or a Recreational park with a walking trail and sports field for outdoor activities.

I ate at Top Dawg Tavern today and had the Texas cheese steak sandwich. The meat was dry, the fries were cold and there was very little cheese on the sandwich. Go for the atmosphere but not for the food.

Also, after being enticed into ordering my grandson a chocolate milkshake, we were informed that Top Dawg Tavern was out of chocolate syrup indicative of poor management and poor staff communication. However, as before, the atmosphere was good.
