A very nice restaurant downtown Athens. We went when the University was on spring break but it was still crowded and there was a waiting line when we left. They do not take reservations. The food was very good and they have a large wine list. The desserts were excellent. Plan on visiting again in the near future.

If you appreciate local ingredients and classy Southern cuisine, prepared well, Last Resort is a must. I highly recommend it to anyone who comes to Athens. It is an interesting experience as well, being downtown. They also have a full bar and great Desserts.

After finding our first choice closed, we tried The Last Resort for lunch, The food and service was great. My wife had a ravioli dish and I had the meatloaf sandwich. Both were great and had a lot of flavor. Their salads are very good too. We had two different cheesecakes for the desert and we wiped them out! This... More

Very popular Athens restaurant that is a cut above the usual Athens' pubs and grills. The menu is interesting without being pretentious. They clearly care about their ingredients. I had the hangar steak which was prepared perfectly and sauced just right. Spouse had the sea bass and loved every bite. Save room for their out of this world white chocolate... More

I've wanted to go to Last Resort for years! I went to college in Athens years ago but never made it to Last Resort, so this past week my husband and I went. He got the Salmon and Grits and I got the Praline Chicken. Both of them were cooked to perfection and had amazing flavor. This will definitely be... More

It's hard to beat this Athens institution. The food is consistently good as is the service (which honestly is pretty rare in Athens). The desserts, not actually made by anyone at Last Resort, are amazing (the white chocolate cheesecake will make you cry). The salad with vidalia dressing is unique and delicious, and most of their entrees are great. It... More

Tends to be very crowded with not much room to wait, although there is a small bar area if you can get a spot there. Waiting a little extra for a table not in the main room is worth it to not have people standing over you. Food selection and quality is excellent. I've enjoyed the times I have been... More

This is rated to be one of the best in Athens but we weren't impressed. Tables are inches from other diners, service is exceedingly slow (and we came early), food is fine but certainly not worth the price. Nicer place--for a nicer dinner, only not one worth coming back to. Wish it was better.

This restaurant is a hit. You can tell that by the crowd and the long wait. But it is all well worth it. The food here is outstanding from the appetizers, to the salads to the bread and the mains. Every single item was perfect. We enjoyed the chicken in parchment and the salmon and grits for our mains. Highly... More

We went to Last Resort based on several recommendations. It was a Wednesday night after 7pm. We were seated almost immediately, and most of the tables were occupied with guests. Our server was very informative about the menu, attentive to refills & other needs, and all-around friendly but the service was very slow; tables that came in after us were... More
