The servers will help you choose if its a first visit. The place is a must visit if you are looking to experience the authentic Athens vibe. The fare is delicious, though you may have to wait a bit for it .

The Last Resort typically has good food and good service. The prices are in keeping with most of the restaurants downtown. Their food is prepared with a southwestern flair. You can easily access their menu online and read about the history of the restaurant.

Rated #2 on trip advisor in Athens and the food and service was excellent. The vegetable grill with the herb chicken was fantastic. Highly recommend. One note: Trip Advisor shows them closed at lunch but they were open and busy.

I have never been disappointed at the Last Resort Grill, and this time was no exception. I’ve been to this restaurant about 4 times this last year, and I always get the Salmon And Grits. I should try something else, but it’s so darn good!...More

I believe they do have gift certificates. This would make a great welcome-to-grad-school present.
