I visit this bar frequently as it is really close to my job. I have always enjoyed the food and drinks. The drinks are reasonably priced especially for the area. They have many specialty drinks that are available and an extensive beer menu. The bartenders there are extremely attentive and friendly. Jimmy, Ciaran, and Justine are among the best bartenders...

During a lull in the New Year Eve Festivities, we decided to take break for a good bite to eat, and Globe did not disappoint. Even though they were nearly full with revelers, they were very friendly, found us a place quickly and served us with decent speed. Food and Beverages: The Menu is well-crafted with good choices - we... More

We had a decent lunch, but really nothing to write home about. Overall very average food, but the service was less than average. Okay lunch, but there must be better in the area.

Dropped in for lunch and got to sit outside in the sun and enjoy a good sandwich. Our waiter was nice.

While noisy and lacking in cozy atmosphere the beet and steak salad was wonderful and that solely would be the reason I might go back.

Stumbled across this small bar whilst jumping off and on the trolley bus tour of Boston looking for a lunch stop. So glad we chose this bar from the few eateries along this side of Copely Square. I had the mushroom mozzarella and pesto Panini, hubby had chicken club and we both had sweet potato fries - all lovely and... More

Good food & drink. Very welcoming. Good prices. In the Copley square area of Boston. Portions are huge. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area for a reasonable priced meal.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
