Excellent veggie burger, great music and fun people watching

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.

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

Dip tasted good, but could have been a little thicker, more do a salsa consistency. I ordered their salad with chicken. Chicken was not dry and seasoning was good, size of salad was adaquite ,...

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.

Had just had and early lunch at the Grill - missed the breakfast menu. Then ambled to the Globe and set up shop for our "tailgate session in for a 7:15 kickoff. Found a wonderful seating area in the window area facing the road. Watched the sun and partially set from this fantastic vantage point!!! Irish coffee, sub-freezing weather, sunlight,... More
