My wife and I stopped here for lunch last Saturday. She had the quiche special and I had a southwestern salad. Food was good. Don't expect burgers and fries. They have 2 or 3 specials and the normal menu.

Last Resort has been around a long time. I keep trying to find the menu item that I can really love, but so far, no luck. This probably puts me in the minority's, but there it is.

I've eaten here 3 times in 2 weeks, and the first 2 times it was great! Service & food were excellent. This last time, however, was a disappointment in service - food was still excellent.

The food was really good, as well as the service. My negative is having to listen to loud live music while eating when I wasn't really in the mood. We could have gone elsewhere but wanted to be close by.

Ordered the beef short ribs and was served a chunk of beef that never came close to a rib. It was cooked unmercifully dry and covered with an unrecognizable sauce, taste and ingredients. Local beer was mildly cool, but potable. Service was fine, I sat at the bar. The store was full so it is obviously an in-place to dine.... More

I had lunch with friends who went there for the first time. They loved the seafood pasta dish and thought the service was good. The cheesecake were divine, but the regular cakes not so much.

Thank rgroomes
