I am usually in Athens several times a year and disappointed that had not discovered Last Resort before today. Three of us had lunch ordering the crab cakes, a burger and the quiche of the day. The crab cakes and burger were excellent. Serving size was generous and the price very reasonable. The quiche, however, was just average. Offered as... More

I had the crab Benedict and it was very tasty. The prices are very reasonable and the portions were sizable. I liked the quaintness of the building. Service was excellent. The wait was only 10 minutes, which I felt was good for a Sunday around 12:30 pm.

Excellent food, great service, and outstanding management. Our favorite place to meet and eat with friends in Athens. Great menu, with excellent appetizers and an extensive selection of cheesecakes and layer cakes. My favorite menu items are crab cakes or salmon and grits. Fried green tomato appetizer is the best anywhere. Extensive wine and bar choices.

We must have been lucky to get in so quickly, there were no lines and no waiting! We were even seated where we could watch everyone walk by, which I enjoy doing. The meals were enjoyable and the service was timely. We did not order any dessert because our pasta was so filling, but they certainly looked good.

I'm honestly shocked this restaurant has been rated number 1. I went recently and was not impressed. I ordered the ravioli of the day and the server messed up and I received the traditional ravioli dish that is on the menu. I didn't say anything because, hey, I like pretty much all ravioli. This was an exception. They, for a... More

Four of us ate here last week. The others enjoyed the crab cakes for an appetizer. I had the New York Strip which was very good. The others had the roasted red pepper and the New Struggleville pastas which they enjoyed. The New Struggleville pasta was a little greasy. We were saving room for the dessert because of the reviews.... More

Ok, this restaurant always has a waiting line to get a seat here. The reason there is a waiting line is the quality of food is great. I have eaten here several times for lunch and dinner and you can expect a 20 minute wait time to get in. The food is good, clean restaurant, wait staff is also good.... More

Had seen the many excellent reviews on the Last Resort Grill and decided to try it while we were in town for the UGA-Tech game. Stopped by around 6:30pm and it was packed...two hour wait. Have to hand it to the staff, they handled the crowd and the dinners expertly. Once seated, we were promptly greeted and from that point... More
