They dont actually take reservations, but they do have some type of preferential call ahead deal that I dont understand. Anyways, I called two days in advance for a party of 9. We got there early, but still didnt get seated until just after resv. time of 630pm. Not a great deal of menu choices, and the place is not... More

My daughter and I went for a lunch after Christmas. We'd had delicious food during the holidays but we wanted something different. The Last Resort did not disappoint. I had a hamburger---but no mundane slab of beef---rather a juicy delight topped with a tangy peach salsa that I'm still dreaming about. Ahhhhhh! For dessert, we shared a piece of carrot... More

In 20 years we have never had a bad meal or bad service at Last Resort, and as often as we eat there, that's pretty remarkable! Creative menu, expertly prepared and served. Excellent wine list. Cecilia Villaveces cakes! Can't beat it!

I made what I thought was a reservation 2 weeks in advance. I checked in for our 7:30 reservation at 7:25 only to be told it would be another hour and a half. My "reservation" only put Our names on the list. This completely ruined my daughter's 27th birthday. The manager was also extremely rude and uncaring. What a shame... More

This is definitely a restaurant you want to experience if you're in the Athens area. It was so good that we went back 2 days later, & were not disappointed. They do not take reservations, so we dined early, around 6:00 PM to avoid a long wait. We did not get appetizers because we were told to save room for... More

Now don't get me wrong, the food was good. However when you pay $23 for three scallops and some Parmesan grits, you have to wonder what are you paying for. The grits were pretty good. They were cooked just right and I enjoyed the cheese. On the other hand, The scallops were definitely undercooked. The only saving grace for this... More
