We had the quiche of red peppers and pepper jack/cheddar cheese (and a whole bunch of other yummy stuff), chicken enchiladas, turkey burger, patty melt with jalapeños. Everything was great. Not one bad thing. Highly recommend.

Last Resort was quite busy for a Wednesday night, in town for a UGA tour. Went there because it was a top restaurant on Trip Advisor, not to mention our UGA tour guide highly recommended it. No disappointment. Service was quick and attentive, food was excellent and just the right portions. Prepared perfectly.

Stopped in while waiting out the weather in the area. I sat in the bar and let the Bartenders suggest what I should have, they did not steer me wrong. I had the crispy pork belly for an app and then the seared scallops for dinner. Everything was great, we'll balanced and portioned well. Beers with dinner were a Great... More

I was very pleased with the quality of the food. Fried green tomatoes and salmon on grits were excellent. I was distracted by the quality of the cutlery. They didn't really look clean although I'm sure they have been through the dishwasher. A restaurant of this quality needs to have a better quality eating utensil.

One of the best meals I've ever had, with tender chicken, great cheese, and some of the best crab cakes I've had in years. Small restaurant, but very much worth the wait!! Call ahead and get on the list!!

Great local downtown restaurant that seems to always have a line to get in. Went for Sunday brunch and was worth the wait. Everything was good- clay pots, omlettes, spicy potatoes and shrimp & grits.

I was disappointed after reading all of the great reviews on here. The wait to get a table wasn't bad, only 20 minutes for a table of two. The service was lousy, the waitress didn't check in often and was annoyed when you asked her to repeat something. Which brings me to how loud and cramped this place is, the... More

Harrison was our waiter, a treasure of information on the local scene. Knows his wines and area craft beers, also does a fine job at describing the menu and daily specials. The eatery is a local favorite and you will realize why if you try the food and good beverage selections. Decorative ambiance and a warm social atmosphere for everyone's... More

The food we had was delicious! My only regret is that I didn't save room for the large dessert selection they had. I will be back next time I am in Athens!
