Was told this was a must visit and the food was so yummy! Ordered a Turkey Reuben and it had a wonderful taste, only complaint was the chef was a little skimpy on the amount of turkey. Just a little more would've been perfect. However, our waiter was super awesome and would definitely go back.

I have been here several times with my husbands department for dinner and drinks. We usually have a large group and the servers have always been rude and act like we are putting them out. We all tip well and are not drunk or out of line so it is really disappointing to be treated poorly just because you are... More

I've been frequenting the Globe for over a decade now. They offer good pub style food that is consistently well prepared, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and a comprehensive list of quality beer, wine and spirits. They have great Happy Hour specials, and offer ample and comfortable seating in a comfortable and cozy atmosphere. I've spent evening here with close... More

We came here tonight for dinner. I ordered the globe chips and the chili cheese fries. Both came out piping hot and they tasted delicious. One of my favorite parts about this place was the beer selection. You have to try the ginger beer, especially if you like your beer a little sweet.

It had been a long time since I had been in Athens and while many of the places I remember from the 90's were gone the Globe is still there and as great as I remember. Good beer, nice employees and a great laid back atmosphere. Across the street from the GA Theater so a fantastic place to see Athens... More

The beers and burgers were some of the best ever! Would definitely recommend them. We had lunch with beer and the waitress helped us choose a most tasty beer.

Great place and generally good food but don't get the burger. The meat was dry, bacon flavorless, and overall dissappointing. The globe should be ashamed to charge $12 for this.

The floors creak, the chairs rock and the couches say come on in! We stopped in for a bite and a cold one and we're blown away by the great food. I had a steak sandwich off the specials menu and it was the most tender one I've ever had. Their signature burger is awesome. When we were looking for... More

A very cool place. Nice, natural servers and very good food. The Celtic musicians were a charming and wonderful addition. The Bloody Mary was terrific. Even the basics, such as their club sandwich with fries were great! We will be back. Hopefully many times!

In town for the Tennessee game with my son looking for lunch and a beer. Needless to say, there are lots of options in Athens, but this place looked good. It was. Nice atmosphere. Good food, good beer list. Our appetizer came for desert, but I think you have to expect service issues on a football Saturday.

Thank ripperlaw
