Best burger around

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... read 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

Globe is a great representation of downtown Athens. Good mix of older people and students. Pub like atmosphere and a great bar. Nice selection of beer at decent prices. Probably 10 on draft. We had the Reuben and the Steak frittes. Steak was properly cooked at med rare, although it was really under seasoned. Reuben was good. Lots of Russian... More

Had lunch here. This is a great college spot. Even better that we could have the dog on the patio. The food was really good (two veggie plates and a steak salad). The service was excellent.

First time in the restaurant and had lunch. The experience was okay.... The food and service was average. Huge selection of bottled beer. Not a very large menu. Nice area for lounging after a meal. Very close to the UGA campus. The homeless wondering around was a bit off putting. Truth be told, it seems they cater to the local... More

I have lived in Athens 20 years and the Globe has always ben a fixture in the bar scene here. A great local bar located on a corner across from The Georgia Theater. The globe is a good spot for people watching and meeting downtown before dinner or a show. A pub environment with pub type food. Good selection of... More
