Burger was a little over cooked, but delicious. Blackened steak sandwich was good and cooked perfect. Good selection of beers as well.

If you're looking for a casual pub where you can get a truly decent burger with your beer, this is your place. Not a fancy meal, but solid and completely satisfying.

The host was a great guy. After I told him a detailed description of my favorite beers, he was right on target with his selection.

Quintessential Irish pub-southern U.S. style. Come catch a soccer (footsy) match, enjoy some of the best beers, and of course the fish and chips. This is the place where faculty/grad students hang-out, and the noise level is subdued, the place has a mellow atmosphere and makes for a great evening out.

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...
