Great food and service and comfortable. We had a group of 10 and were kept very happy while we waited. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They prepared exactly the way my picky husband requested.

Quirky pub with little booths to eat in. Reason I gave it average is the bar staff were not the most courteous. My drink was removed from the table whilst I stood beside it and it wasn't empty - did not realise until it was too late and I noticed they huffing and puffing at the big crowd. It was... More

Got here right before the kitchen was closing. Ordered burgers and a chicken salad sandwich. All was pretty good. Lots of craft beer options. Service was good.

Sited in an old building on Lumpkin and Clayton the Globe is laid back and not connected..it's an older time here which is a relief from rushing about. Dog friendly al fresco. Had a fine roast beef sandwich with a side salad that was generous. Able to read and reflect in summer quiet.

I felt very comfortable here. I sat on their leather coach, and read the Sunday New York Times while drinking a local craft brew. Great way to spend an hour.

Located on the prime corner of Lumpkin and Clayton, across the street from the historic Georgia Theater, the Globe has been a favored water hole for the university's literati since it opened in 1989. In the early years it was the prime hangout for profs, postdocs and grad students, and was widely recognized for one of the most diverse collections... More

Had the French Dip with fries. Lots of meat and tasty French bread made a delicious sandwich and the Su jus was good. Salad with Tandoori chicken was ok, but needed more chicken.

I spend most Sunday afternoons at the Globe listening to an Irish music jam session with a constantly revolving group of 7-15 accomplished musicians. It has an old-world pub atmosphere, the best homemade potato chips with blue cheese sauce in the state and a large selection of local and craft beers.

We rode down from Clemson expecting it to be quite with schools out but there was a packed crowd for bike races at the Twilight event! Was going to Ga Theater rooftop to eat lunch but it was packed with everyone just drinking so we found this place. Staff very friendly, quick service and food was good. Great pub atmosphere... More

Went there for a late dinner. The menu is somewhat limited but eth food was very good and the waitress did a great job! I was impressed with her knowledge and the speed in which she got us in and out of the restaurant
