Ambiance, staff and service were as good as the food. Three of us went there - all with high praise for their meal. Steak, pork tenderloin and beef short ribs were all good. Nice local and interesting dishes well prepared. Well worth the trip.

My sister and brother-in-law were here from New York to visit with my daughter at UGA. She and I had eaten here at her orientation 3 years ago and thought they would enjoy the food. The waiter was awesome. Food was great and the white chocolate with Oreo crust cheesecake the waiter recommended was very good He was a lot... More

On our visit to See University of Georgia someone recommended Last resort. It has a very interesting menu with a lot of local flavors, like fried green tomatoes, grits,catfish etc. but also has a lot to Offer if you want something simple. Service was great with recommendations. Lively atmosphere but not too loud . Very enjoyable meal.

I met some friends here for lunch and sat on the patio on a sunny day. The service was a little green but good. The food was unique and thoughtful -- southern, yet modern. AND, when this place was chosen, I assumed by the name it would have interesting coctails, and they did. They mix based on what is in... More

We were in the 'college' strip area and there are so many pubs, pizza places, burger joints, but we were in the mood for a step up from that. We found the Last Resort Grill with a nice little outside patio. I had the short rib and all I got was one small short rib. It was very good but... More

We had a great meal and libations on the Friday night of UGA Homecoming weekend. Our group numbered 12 people and while they say they don't take reservations, for big groups they will "hold" a table for you. Restaurant is loud and crowded but the food is excellent!

Everyone around town told us "you HAVE to go to the Last Resort for dinner!" So we did. We waited about 20 minutes for a table. The hostess was very nice, but our server was quiet and didnt say much, if anything. Our table was near the street, which we liked because it was a beautiful night outside, and it... More

We were there for a wedding reception. Shrimp and grits were great. Best grits I have ever eaten and, normally, I don't like grits. Salad was strange tasting with lots of stringy red leafs. Background music was too loud, making it hard to have a conversation.

Likely most popular restaurant in town for a good reason. Great food, great service. Desserts are the highlight of the meal. Go early as they don't take reservations and always a crowd interested.

We stopped at the Last Resort on the recommendation of a UGA alum, and it did not disappoint! I had the pasta special (asparagus, smoked chicken with cavatappi in a yummy cream sauce), one friend had the burger, another had the chicken enchiladas, and another had the chipotle lime pork roll. It was all delicious!!! We also each had a... More
