We have a group of 8-10 that comes every year while we're in town for a conference. The service is always fantastic and the food never fails. We had chicken, pasta, salmon, lamb, fried green tomatoes, crab cakes and dessert. It was all exceptional. They have great cocktails and the cheesecakes and cakes available for dessert are to die for.... More

Had dinner at Last Resort Grill last evening. We got our name on a "call list" for 7pm.

The restaurant was crowded and lively.... More

My wife and I found this place while exploring UGA. Delicious! The veggie bowl alone was with the detour off 85. The broth was incredible. I had the black bean soup, which was good. And my wife and split the patty melt, which was excellent. Busy place with nice vibe. We sat at bar, which is small but a nice... More

I was eating solo while my husband spoke at a conference. I sat outside on a beautiful day and enjoyed lunch and an unplanned dessert. The Blow Oskar's Sister's Cousin was a delicious grilled chicken sandwich. Check the menu for description. It was the best chicken sandwich I've ever had. It came with a nice sized garden salad of mixed... More

First time here. Had lunch Tuna salad and meatloaf sandwich (careful a little messy) both very good and not over pricey. Lucky the board with specials were next to us so she could read off it. She was a good waitress. Super large wine list. Will be back.

I have been here 3 times over the past few years and I am sorry to say the food quality is not as good as it used to be. I got the salmon and grits. It was ok but the salmon was overcooked. My sisters Tiger shrimp dish was better.

While their dinner is excellent, no reservations allowed often causes a wait. But go at lunch and try the pork roll, salads or my favorite, the fried green tomato BLT with Visalia bacon dressing. Don't get too full because their desserts are the best! Cake from the famous Cecilias (try the red and black) and the addictive white chocolate cheesecake.
