Pretty nice atmosphere if you like a college town. The service was great, and the food was ok. I may have had higher expectations due to the #1 rating on this site, but I can't really judge it any better than other eats I had in Athens. My steak was cooked well, but my potatoes were lacking seasoning, and the... More

The front desk attendant at the Holiday Inn (1 block away) recommended the restaurant. The place was fantastic. I was surprised to see how busy the place was on a Monday night. The food was full of flavor and the service was outstanding. They have great beers available that are hard to find. We had such a great time, we... More

Fried Green Tomatos...sure but why not serve them between two slices of grilled bread with lettuce and bacon slathered with mayonnaise? That's the kind of food fusions that sets The Last Resort apart in a city full of good eateries

Never had a bad meal. Creative food in an eclectic atmosphere - a true Athens dining experience. Always a good value.

I've been to the Last Resort several times and have always had a delicious meal surrounded by a collection of people from all walks of Athenian life. The prices are reasonable, the service is good, and the food is delightful...and the cakes are wonderful!

The Last Resort has a nice atmosphere, especially if you can get an outside table on a nice day, good food, and wonderful service for a reasonable cost. The menu is extensive enough to offer something for everyone, but not so huge that it takes forever to decide. I am not a big sweets eater, but I'm told the cakes... More

Last Resort is one of the really good, reliable restaurants in Athens. It has real food freshly prepared and it's not too expensive. My husband loves the Shrimp and Grits and I adore their vegetarian options. The only downside is that it's usually busy and there's just one big room, so it can get too noisy for a quiet romantic...

Long established Athens, GA restaurant with a great staff, delicious, well prepared food and (sometimes) long lines of those waiting to be seated. Good specials that change frequently, good bar and moderate pricing. Sunday Brunch is not to be missed but it's also one or the times the restaurant is really crowded. Football weekends pack the restaurant so allow yourself... More

Way overrated. You can't taste the food because it is so spicy. I am allergic to all spices and this is a concept that apparently many restaurants, including this one, can't understand.
