I was told by another visitor what a wonderful place this was and unfortunately I took a group of business associates from out of town. We arrived at 4:51, it took ten minutes before anyone even came to get our drink orders .They also

I've never been ignored in a restaurant for so long. Why even be open if you aren't going to serve anyone. Total waste of time. Food was decent but definitely not worth it.

For the most part, this is a graduate student and townie crowd, which we much appreciate. Nice selection of beers and wines by the glass. Haven't tried the food but they've gone after a pretty representative English pub menu.

The Globe is my favorite bar in Athens. Very laid back, very low key. The Globe caters to a more mature, more sophisticated crowd. You aren't going to find undergrads looking to hook up in this bar. You will, however, often find grad students discussing politics over a glass of wine, professors talking shop over a pint, and locals just stopping by for a drink and a chat.

Lots of beer and wine to choose from. Food is simple and good. Around happy hour they often put out free bread and cheese for the patrons.

If the typical belligerent, underage college bar is your gig, The Globe is not for you. A bar boasting a wide selection of wine and heady beer, the inside has cozy couches, dim lighting, and trendy European pub-like ambience. The food is usually mediocre, except for the antipasto platter with olives, cheeses, and an array of Mediterranean snacks that is truly tasty (and probably the most inexpensive menu item). I limit my opinions to after dark as I haven?t been during the day, but I?ve heard they offer a few heartier meals like meatloaf, burgers, and chicken sandwiches as well. The conversation is definitely a high point if you enjoy philosophy or literature, but the crowd lacks the college humor found in most other downtown bars. So for cheap food and beer, travel elsewhere; but if an after-work brew and bit of conversation is more appealing, check ?em out!

Pros: large beer and wine selection and great conversation

Cons: average food and a bit expensive

The Globe is not like most restaurants/bars downtown. It is more laid back, and you will find an older crowd hanging out there. The food is great, and the service is great too. They have a patio so you can sit outside. The prices are not too bad. I would recommend this restaurant!

The Globe always smells like someone is making sausage or smoking a pile of wood chips or something. The food gets a 6/10, although one time when I was sick I made my boyfriend circle the block while I got some soup from them, so it was either good, or there was dayquil in it. They have a great beer and wine selection, but you have to tolerate being "people watched" by old academic types.

The couches are comfortable and it's always dark inside. Also! Oh! They have a cheese + fruit platter for like, 9 dollars or so AND IT IS DELICIOUS AND WORTH THE NINE DOLLARS. Which is why I wrote this review.

Pros: I met my husband there.

Cons: Smells like a midevil shoppe.

This is a great casual place, not dingy like some of the undergrad bars. It's also a great lunch spot during the day with delicious sandwiches- I love their croque monsieur.

The food at The Globe is excellent, probably some of the best of downtown Athens. Burgers are great and the Wednesday meatloaf and veggies special is to die for. Unfortunately the daytime wait staff is mostly horrible. Bartenders and night time wait staff do a much better job, but if you go there for lunch, go ahead and expect to wait a long time and have your order screwed up by the waitress. I have only had three of the waitresses there during the day, no waiters, and all of them were bad. Large parties seem to get more service than one or two-person tables. Overall, it's worth it for the great food if you have the time to wait and you make your server read the order back to you before turning it in to the kitchen.

Pros: Excellent food; Meatloaf and veggie special on Wednesdays; great steaks and burgers

Cons: Terrible daytime waitresses, who seem to be in another world

This pub has a definate sophisticated European feel. It's a great place to meet friends after work or class for great beer and drinks. The cheese and olives at happy hour is a nice touch. Its a nice refuge from the typical college hangouts downtown. Offers an excellent opportunity for people watching too.
