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.

The quaint rooms, cozy atmosphere but the best part was the lunch and the dessert. Excellent service also! We felt like we were home, having our meal served for... More

A lot of times at restaurants, it's just a matter of what you get. I got the salmon and grits. A pretty simple meal. But, it was excellently prepared. The grits were very good and complimented the salmon well. The salmon was perfectly prepared. It was flaky, tender, juicy and had the perfect touch of seasoning. It came with a... More

I got the pork belly to go - it was okay. First time ordering from this place, don't get me wrong - I enjoyed the food I ordered, I guess it's my fault I got high expectations and I wasn't blown away. Will try something else next time.

Menu was great, but a demonstration in the difference between grits and polenta.... about $4 a serving. They aren't the... More
