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.

I visit the Globe often in the late afternoon, once a week at most, for a couple cold ones during happy hour beginning at four. Everything about the Globe is almost perfect. Great place for people watching, centrally located, and the beer choices are numerous. The only request I would have is that they start giving table service for people... More

Just a solid joint. I was a little peeved at the lack of service during my latest visit although bartender was very nice and gave a great recommendation of a beer. Nice people, just no sense of urgency.

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.
