Very cool restaurant with delicious food!

After our tour of UGA, we really enjoyed lunch at the Last Resort Grill. The spinach salad I had was wonderful, and my boys enjoyed the burgers and compared the hamburger buns to Krispie Kreme donuts! Overall, very cool atmosphere and delicious food!

Last Resort is kind of southern gourmet. It's always fresh. Some may not like the twist they put on entrees. If you are a meat and three, don't go. If you like great fresh food on the gourmet side, you'll love it.

Can always count on a great meal! Looking for a special night out with friends or hubby this is the place to go. Love the Vidalia onion dressing for salads! My husband loves the chicken and I like the crab cakes! And of course you must save room for dessert, they are fabulous!

The last resort is great but I can get pricey if you go as a family. The atmosphere is also great but not as kid friendly as other restaurants. The food is amazing though so don't stay away just be aware.

if you want great ambiance and atmosphere to compliment your conversation over dinner....this ain't the place! while the food is great, your almost bumping elbows with the people at the next table. you hear and hear about this joint, and ive been a few times now, but i know to steer clear if i truly want to have an enjoyable...

The food was great. The main dining room was hot and quite cramped though and I didn't like being jostled all the time.

A true Athens classic. I've visited Last Resort Grill many times over the years and the food and service are always top notch: five star food in a funky, comfortable atmosphere. On my most recent visit I enjoyed the blackened catfish. "New Struggleville" is a can't miss dish and the desert options are legendary.
