While visiting Athens and UGA for a college tour with our teenagers, a waitress at an area pub suggested Last Resort as a great place for dinner. What a fabulous experience. Athens is such a fun place - so vibrant - and Last Resort added to the fun. The food was fantastic…we had salads, martinis, cheesecake, a quesadilla appetizer, steak... More

I live only 40 minutes from the Last Resort. I've been hearing for 20 years how wonderful this restaurant is and finally got to go! The wait on a Saturday at 7:00 was a little over an hour. While we were there, the wait crept up to an hour and 45 minutes for others. This restaurant is quaint and eclectic... More

We stopped for lunch on our way through Athens to the mountains. I ordered the special ravioli with artichoke spinach sauce....the ravioli was sort of crisp, which the waitress told us about. Alex ordered the meatloaf, served on, of all things mashed peas. My pasta dish was yummy and the meatloaf reported to be the best ever. The prices were... More

The Last Resort Grill is by far the biggest staple of Athens Cuisine. The food is amazing, the Staff is amazing. This is definitely the place to go to get a taste of the artistic culinary talent of Athens.

Always come here when I am in Athens. The food quality is always good. Daily specials are good choices. Not your usual restaurant. Small, quaint and special. Do not leave without Dessert!

We were a half an hour late for our reservation and the host was forgiving and got us a table after a short wait. The menu is diverse although I would recommend the crab cakes. A lot of my friends enjoy the cake there as well.

I have worked in Athens for 20+ years, and Last Resort is the best restaurant in Athens. The menu is diverse and outstanding, and the food is always excellent. My wife likes wine, and they have a nice selection of wines for her to choose from when we have dinner here. I also go to Last Resort for lunch at... More

When you're in Athens, don't miss Last Resort. Great prices for such amazing food. Lunch prices are especially affordable. I love the turkey burger, but everything is great!

Last Resort in Athens has consistently great food and great service. Unfortunately the serving size is too small. I always seem to leave still hungry. Fortunately they have terrific desserts, so it is very tempting to order one just to fill up.
