Th owner himself led us to our table, this is southern hospitality. Great menu, especially the chicken is very tasty. Beautiful interieur, we had a table close to the window section. Very friendly service staff.

We really liked our dinner here. The menu and prices are definitely gear more for the non-student-budget crowd, which was pretty much what we were going for. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the horseradish crusted salmon which was quite good. My only comment about that was that the horseradish was not pronounced and the salmon was slightly overcooked. The... More

I was in Athens for a conference and my colleague and I went there at 8. It was busy, but we were sat immediately. Another colleague texted 15 minutes later that he would like to join. The waitress was very helpful getting us a table close by to put with our table, then somehow got our food to come out... More

Good food and a variety of selections. Upscale but not expensive. A favorite time after time. Highly recommend for both lunch and dinner.

Hands down one of the top 3 or 4 restaurants in Athens. The food is always top notch although the menu is somewhat static, the wine list is extensive, and their dessert selection is the most tempting in town. We always go there for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. Just be aware, they are also one of the most... More

Everything I have eaten at this place is great. I have to say though my favorite is the crab cakes!!!! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Its always busy but waiting for a table is not bad at all, you can sit outside or at the bar.

I have been here many times and always get the same salmon dish. The last time we were sitting by the from window. I noticed a very messy employee (cook, dishwasher) step outside to smoke a cigarette. He came back in, and I thought "I hope he is not preparing my food." The next morning I was nauseated and sick...

This has long been a stand-out restaurant in Athens. The food is really good and the atmosphere can be noisy. The space is inviting and the service is usually good. This is the sort of place where all your favorites stay on the menu forever; which is great, but there is not a lot of innovation on the menu. Always... More

I was delighted to see a variety of menu items that you can't get just anywhere. Eating out should be interesting and fun, and this is so at The Last Resort. Some of the featured entrees were too expensive for my budget, but there were also quite a few dinners that were modestly priced. Service was excellent. Food was brought... More
