We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and we are never disappointed. The atmosphere is chic, unique and comfortable. The food is always fabulous and the staff is always very accommodating.

Good service, average food and high noise level in main room. Some parking available adjacent to restaurant. Room opening to street best location.

This place was recommended by an undergrad. I am so happy that we went, this place had a cool vibe and the food was delicious. If I understood the buzz, this place has been here for some time. The menu has some creative blending of food! Make sure you give this place a try.

This restaurant ALWAYS has the best food; however, you should be prepared to wait during peak dining hours. They have a small bar area where you can order a drink to wait for your table. It's a small restaurant so when it's crowded there is not a lot of places to stand "out of the way". Overall, it's worth the... More

We recently visited the Last Resort Grill in Athens, GA for lunch. We have dined there several times before, and this visit did not disappoint. The restaurant is very popular, and can be very busy at times, especially during dinner hours. We were in the area at lunch time and decided to stop by. We are glad we did. The... More

We had called ahead for a table which put us "halfway" up the seating list when we arrived. They do not take reservations, but the call ahead helped a lot. I believe we waited 1.5 hours WITH call ahead on the Sat night of Parents' Weekend. This weekend is probably one of their busiest, so keep that in mind when... More

Super store front space, very eclectic. Long wait, a testament to its popularity. Gave us a chance to hit the brewery on another street and enjoy some locally crafted ales. The food was very good, the Salmon over grits very tasty, but the salmon was a tad overdone. The Beef Short Ribs was outstanding, according to my college student. Very... More

Our group had a fun and relaxing dinner. We shared the plate of fried green tomatoes for a light starter...the sauce was awesome. I had the spinach salad and added salmon lightly blackened. The portion was entree-size, which was just right. Definitely coming back.

The Last Resort Grill never disappoints! Year after year this long time Athens restaurant is always a top pick. The food is consistently delicious. They don't decide to change favorite recipes... Like the crab cakes. They are s good as any you can find on the coast and the dessert selection is always out of this world.

Thank mjwiggy
