Great Experience

We were celebrating birthdays and since we saw that The Last Resort was rated #1 in Athens, we decided to try. We went on a Saturday afternoon, arriving around 5:30. When we arrived there was already an hour and half wait. Since there was 11 of us, we decided to wait it out. We were not... read more

This restaurant gets high marks for consistency, quality, and service. The menu is limited, but very good. The patrons are eclectic as one would expect in a reasonably priced restaurant in a college town. Expect an equal mix of undergrads, graduate students, professors, and retirees. Downtown parking can be a challenge, and because they don't take reservations, it is sometimes... More

I must visit the Last Resort Grill every time I'm in Athens. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is cozy and romantic. They also have the best Lemon Drops known to man! If you are in Athens it's a must do.

Great spot in Athens! The restaurant is smaller and in an older downtown building but it's downtown Athens, so it has charm. The food is all good. I always try to stop by when I go back to Athens and I frequented this spot a lot in college as well. You can't go wrong with dinner here on a Friday... More

Good food with great prices! No reservations taken so be prepared to wait, but it is worth it! The chicken tortilla salad is my favorite...my husband loves the burger.

My husband and I ate there tonight. We arrived at 5:30 and waited about 30 minutes to be seated. We had crab cakes as an appetizer that were delicious. I had the stuffed chicken with grits which was good. My other "side" was green beans which were just too crunchy for me. My husband had blackened catfish that he enjoyed.... More

The Last Resort Grill was my favorite restaurant when I lived in Athens about 15 years ago, and I was looking forward to visiting the old spot when back in town. I was incredibly pleased to find that they still have my favorite menu item, salmon and grits, and they have added some new items that all sound delicious. The... More

Our waiter JT made our first dining experience at LRG an excellent dining experience. The steak was prepared to perfection and even though the cheesecake (that was recommended) was not available, he brought us an excellent substitute.

In town for a conference and ate here for both lunch and dinner on the same day (the choice of two different groups). Lunch was on the poor side while the evening meal was above average. Neither were superb as the reviews led us to believe. Lunch was not horrible, but wasn't much better than bland. The temperature of the... More

I've never had a bad meal or bad service ever. Like the title say's reliably excellent. Great for a special occasion. Lunch or dinner, it gets crowded. Food is fantastic. A little pricy if you're on a budget.
