On game day, there was not surprise that this popular place had a crowd of patrons waiting on a table outside. Fortunately, the weather suited the 30 minute wait for lunch. Once seated, our server was friendly and attentive, though despite

I can't believe I've forgotten to review the Last Resort until now!!! This is by far one of the best restaurants that is downtown. I love taking family from out of town here to eat because I know that there is always something for everyone and it will always be delicious. My husband and I have chosen this restaurant for several anniversary dinners because they are the only restaurant that we can depend on to be fabulous each time. The desserts are very good but I'm usually too full to eat one! The only drawback is that it can get rather loud when they are packed... which is often. The noise level is comparable to the Five and Ten, another delicious but loud restaurant.

The Last Resort is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is incredible and atmosphere is fun. The shrimp with linguine is awesome. You should split the Gorgonzola salad with any meal! The desserts are made by Cecilia a local baker. They are good but not the best I've ever had. Who has room for dessert after the fabulous meal though!

The Last Resort has amazing small plates and entrees that can be shared between a couple or an entire group. Beautifully presented dishes that are bursting with multi dimensional flavors attract visitors and locals alike.

My favorite restaurant in Athens. My girlfriends and I go here all the time for a nice dinner in a really cool and upbeat atmosphere. They seem to use fresh, local foods as often as possible.

I like this grill. I got a turkey sandwich there that was pleasantly surprising. It's also in a good spot downtown and you can sit outside and watch all the college kids go by.

Doesn't sound so hot, does it? WRONG, it ROCKS! This place has gone through plenty of changes through the years, all because they know what it takes to keep up with the competition! You'll be pleasantly suprised if you make this your First Stop and give yourself a break! Don't waste your time wandering up and down the streets- a hot spot for sure, you'll be entertained just watching the people if you stop for a drink at everyone's Last Resort.

My husband and I are regulars. It's our favorite place for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Jaamy, one of the owners, is wonderful! He's always friendly and has a smile

So I?m not much of a breakfast gal, but I love a good midday brunch with light food, friendly conversation, and most importantly, the best bloody mary in town. To satisfy this I really enjoy the Last Resort in downtown Athens. The food is superb! Crab cakes, burgers, steamed asparagus, fresh salads, and the best cheesecake ever are served in a cozy, often crowded set of dining rooms. Yet even when packed the aromas and genuine local feel of the place outweigh the volume or cramped seating. The prices aren?t for the poverty-stricken college kid, but if you love a spicy bloody mary packed with veggies and vodka, this is the place to visit. Parking, as with every downtown location, is generally available; but the beauty of downtown is that everywhere is within walking distance?at least a block or two. The quality of service varies so don?t go if your in a time crunch, but for a leisurely drink and small bite, try it?it?s the bloody best!

Pros: best bloody mary and brunch around

Cons: often crowded

As usual the food was superb, but unfortunately, Sunday night, the service was quite poor. Going for an early dinner, 5:00 o'clock, my family was seated immediately and our order taken. 40 minutes later, our appetizers had not arrived, not even any bread on the table. When food did appear, we were quite hungry and ate it quickly. Then, as we waited for entrees, we filled up with bread. Finally we asked for our entrees boxed - to go. The manager, "Jaamy", was quite rude. No one bothered to even say sorry, and when opening the "to go" boxes at home, it was obvious that the portions had been purposely reduced. I am very disappointed.

It can get crowded, so reservations are surly recommended. I ate at the bar. First off? The building and decor was very cozy and the atmosphere was rushed do to eating at the bar. It has an extensive wine list and friendly tender and waiters. I ordered the crab cakes to start and wow. The meat was not lumped, but it still was fabulous. They used a Romulade sauce with a dripping of some red pepper sauce which reminded me of Vietnamese red pepper sauce: very hot. After that, the house salad was bland, They should have used Arugula. For the main course, I had a salmon with a pineapple/mango garnish. It should have had more but it was still quite good. I finished it off with an espresso (I was cringing when he broke out the ?pod? but it was still acceptable). Try the crab cakes , you won?t be disappointed.

During my various excursions to Athens, Ga., I often dine at the Last Resort Grill. It offers Southern nouveaux gourmet dishes at reasonable prices, mixed with a laid-back atmosphere. Recommended for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike
