Love the space

Food is plentiful and tasty. They often have live entertainment. The special are really good and they have a wide beer selection. The owners are very nice.

We ate here today and it was AWESOME! The service was excellent and the food was "off the chain good". We were so happy that we made the choice to eat here and we will definitely be back.

The Globe has been one of the most popular pubs in Athens, GA for over two decades. It sits on a street corner downtown, across from The Georgia Theater, and with the huge windows you may watch the great variety of interesting people who walk the streets in downtown Athens, Athens is a university town (UGA) but lots of townies...

They do have a nice beer selection and their atmosphere is decent. The booths are comfortable but the chairs and barstools are awful - just hard wood with no padding. Too bad their seats are not inviting. Had the cheese and bread app but actually i was disappointed. Four cheeses but the baguette was plain and not fresh, nor was... More

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...
