For $7.00-8.50, the Globe offers an awesome Southern meal - choose of meatloaf or fried chicken with mashed potatoes and 2 southern sides. The veggie plate of 4 items... think collards, Lima beans, fried okra, broccoli casserole, etc.. Is $7. On Tuesdays, draft beer 10 oz pours are only $2, so we had an amazing meal & drink for less...

Had a beer and made a new friend at this bar, but what really set it apart was one of the bartenders, just made me feel so welcome and was so friendly to me as a person in a new place, I certainly will be back to this bar that has a good clientele, large selection of drinks, and a... More

I eat here every few weeks, but never when in a hurry. The food is always good, but the service is always slow. The food really is good so I don't mind. I would recommend, but again, only if you have time to kill.

We rolled into Athens around 3:30, dropped our stuff at the hotel and went for a meander of the downtown. School is out, so what I would assume would be a hopping downtown was half closed and pretty quiet. After wandering around for a while (and on the recommendation of the guy at the front desk of our hotel -... More

We visit The Globe once every few weeks. Our main orders are the blackened steak sandwich or salad. Prices range from $9-14 for entrees, burgers, & sandwiches. Their homemade ranch salad is awesome with a kick of dill. There's a nightly dinner & drink special. The Tuesday 10 oz pours for $2 are a great deal. The corner location, across... More

Several years ago we used to live in Athens-- the Globe was one of my favorite places to drink/eat when we lived there. Now, whenever we visit, I try to drop back by: nothing has changed about this classic pub... while I'm sure there are trendy new places in Athens to eat and drink, the Globe remains. I think it's...

This always seems like a home away from home for those hanging out in the bar. Great service and super friendly atmosphere. Stop by before heading to a local restaurant or make an evening of it in one of the booths. A must stop whether a tourist or if you actually live down the street.

I had a late lunch here. I literally had the best burger (mushroom and swiss) that I have ever had. I'm not easily impressed and my meal was just awesome! Our server (Stav) was attentive, polite and friendly. The atmosphere is a little gritty but this is a college town. It was a great choice and just what I was... More

I went to The Globe with a group of friends. The atmosphere was great. We all ordered different food and everyone enjoyed their meal. Great location downtown Athens close to the campus. The staff were very friendly and engaging. We will be here each year for our mini reunions
