I took 2 of my nieces to the Last Resort for lunch during our girl fun day. We do this annually in July as we tour UGA and shop in downtown Athens. Our big treat is a fresh healthy lunch and we share a slice of cake. One of my nieces ordered the fried green tomato sandwich which is kind... More

My husband and I ate there while vacationing in Athens in June 2014. We were there on a weeknight and it was very crowded, but we did not have to wait for a table since there were just two of us. We very much enjoyed our meal and the service was good. I did not find the prices high for... More

Last Resort is a special corner of heaven with great wines, great atmosphere, fully engaged staff and extraordinary cuisine. I have been there many times and all were excellent experiences. I have tried the pecan crusted trout and the pork belly and both times after my first bite I said aloud "Are you serious?" If you are in doubt on... More

The waiter was the best I have ever had. He anticipated our needs and questions before he was asked. The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! We will definitely be back for more. I had the filet with grilled okra. Normally not a fan of okra unless it is fried but I loved it! You won't want to pass this... More

We ate at The Last Resort last night (after reading all of the amazing reviews) and the food was delicious. We'll definitely be making The Last Resort one of our regular stops when in Athens. So nice, these days, to have an excellent meal, in a great atmosphere, and actually receive exceptional service. And we found the prices to be... More

Place was packed at 6:00 on a Saturday night but only waited 15 minutes for a table for two. Ordered a chicken special that was out of this world! One of my favorite places in Athens!!

We ate at 8pm ona Monday night and this place was so busy, which tells you how popular it is. My husband and I had no reservation but after a short wait they found us a great table. I had the Goucho for my main and my husband had the Cafe Strip. Both meals where mouth-wateringly delicious and the meat... More

Really great place for a nice meal. We arrived without a reservation and it didn't take long to get 4 of us in for dinner. The bartender was nice, quick and made strong drinks while we waited. We sat in the covered front enclosed sunroom area. The restaurant is quaint but not cramped, fun but not too crowded or loud.... More

I had the Sea Trout and it was some of the best fish I have ever eaten. They don't take reservations but if you call ahead and tell them the time you are expected in they try to seat you around that time.

This is a delightful place to get a great meal. Friendly and unpretentious, and the food is outstanding. The salmon was cooked perfectly, and the grits and horseradish crust were both terrific. Salad was fresh and crisp, and the creamy Vidalia dressing was a nice change. Really an altogether wonderful meal.
