    Wonderful and quick service despite it being packed (it was Mother's Day). Hostess and server were super friendly. Great dirty martini and southwestern pasta dish with delicious goat cheese! Go there!

    Make sure park in the right place or the Athens Police will ticket you and have your car towed. Found out the hard way tonight. $140 for towing and $50 ticket. Yay Happy Anniversary to us!

    Try Cayrum, its a dark rum aged 3 years and then infused with all natural ginger and honey. Its great as a chilled shot, on the rocks, ginger ale/beer, juices or Red Bull. Theres nothing like it! Read more

    Featuring the likes of fried green tomatoes and salmon and grits, the Last Resort even stretches to the Atlantic, offering Carolina crab cakes and its own version of a Low Country boil.

    The Vegetable Patch may be THE best Vegetarian Meal I've ever eaten. The best marinated portobello I've ever eaten and put two mashed potatoes (sweet potato and yukon gold)... Genius.

    This was one of the first live music bars in downtown Athens. The venue has hosted many music legends like Jimmy Buffet, the B52s, and Leon Redbone.

    This is where you go when you feel like eating quiche. Seriously, very consistent pastas, meats, and quiches, with bright side salads. And they have a huge dessert case.

    Go at lunch time! The menu is somewhat limited, but it's less than half the price and is a great place to meet with friends.

    The Spinach Salad is very good! The fried green tomatoes are cut a little thick and not as tender as they could be.
