A diverse and unique menu with a Georgian flair. Dined alone and there was only room at the bar but the service was great as was the food and I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience including the expansive dessert selection.

Having seen rave reviews for the Last Resort Grill, I thought I'd try it out. The place was definitely busy when I entered at 6:30pm on a Wednesday, and being alone I took a seat at the bar where only one other patron was sitting at the time. I asked what was on tap but was told all the beers... More

I was visiting Athens for the night and only had the chance to eat at one restaurant in town. My husband and I chose Last Resort and did not regret our decision. I had the salad with salmon and it was prepared perfectly. A wonderful experience and the wine list was impressive too!

When you go back to Athens after a long time away, you hope that many things remain the same. On a return trip to Athens after 7 years away, we decided we had to make a stop at one of our beloved favorites. Last Resort - the place where we went on dates in college or where parents wanted to... More

While in Athens the mural on the outside wall of 'Last Resort' caught our eye and we decided to grab dinner. Ordered the crab cakes starter, and they were excellent! Two different sauces were designed on the plate, one spicier than the other...both were very good. My entrée was the Struggleville, and it was beyond amazing! My fiancée ordered the... More

I unfortunately don't make it to Athens too often, but it seems that when I do, I always end up at Last Resort Grill. Guess it should be called First Resort Grill in my book. First tried it back in 2006 and have never walked away disappointed. Most recent visit was with a colleague as we were passing through Athens... More

Did a stay-ver in Athens on the way to Florida. My wife and I are foodies, and after researching carefully we ended up at The Last Resort. A most happy decision. Had a very satisfying meal in an ambiance that suited us exactly. Helpful, friendly staff, and a decent wine list. Rate it 4/5, and we are quite critical. Would... More

We stopped off in Athens on our way back to Atlanta --yes really !! It is a busy university town in Georgia with a bit of history. This bar diner caters for the younger set but the food is very acceptable and the service very good . Not fine dining by any extent but we enjoyed the whole experience .... More
