Excellent fare for a late Sunday eve.

Sunday nights are notorious for dinner choices on the road. Driving through Athens we had low expectations. But using trip advisor we found this lovely place downtown. We called ahead and to our surprise they closed at ten and would seat us at 930. We saw them seat a couple at 10 pm. Great... read more

Always happy when I eat here, even with the bustle that comes from them being so popular. I normally go for lunch. Portions and flavors are great, and compared to lots of downtown places, service is consistently good. I had friends in town recently and this was on my "Places to Eat" list. Sadly, it didn't work out and they... More

Great location and atmosphere. The shrimp quesadilla was outstanding, but it went downhill from there. I though the Fried Green Tomatoes were bland until I had the beef short ribs. Also, lipstick on my bar glass. They gave me a new beer, but I expected the Manager to at least come by. Not a chance. I will give this place... More

This is one of those places that is hard to find, but once you do you will keep coming back. It can be a bit crowed at times, but the atmosphere is friendly, the service is good and the food is outstanding. They also have a good wine selection. Some say it is pricey, but I say life is too... More

My wife and I have eaten here dozens of times, and brought visiting family and friends here as a way to show off the fun dining in Athens. We have always been happy with the quality of the food, and the flavors the chef is able to present. The service is consistently solid (even when they're busy) with knowledgeable and... More

We got there right when they opened for dinner at 5. The menu is a bit pricey but the food was really good and the portions were fair. Our server was attentive and courteous. I would recommend you give this place a try.

Last Resort has remained the number one spot for good reason. It's delicious, has a fabulous menu, and provides excellent service. If you're new in town or just visiting, it's worth the wait. You will not be disappointed.

I have loved this restaurant since the beginning and have even forgiven them the deletion of great menu items like corn cakes with tropical salsa. Everything is delicious every time. Cakes are amazing, and I don't like cake. My only complaint is that it is cramped in their space whether you are inside or out. It doesn't work well for... More

I was alone before catching some live music, so I sat at the bar to avoid the wait for a table. As I awaited the entree, I ordered an Old Fashioned and a Gimlet, which were both made swiftly and properly with fresh ingredients. The soup of the day was surprisingly enticing, and the salad was crispy and not too... More

I've never had a bad experience at Last Resort. The menu has lots of selections and tasty specials, and the waitstaff is very knowledgeable about what they're serving. Their homemade pasta is always a great choice.
