Service was slow but friendly. Salad was shredded but flavorful. Soup was only warm. Prime rib was cold and tasteless. Bathroom was dirty. Only plus was the history. Hopefully it was just an extremely busy night.

Met an old USMC friend here for lunch. I don't understand the poor reviews this place gets. They must not be Marines. We met and ate at the bar for lunch. I had one of the best bowls of chili I have ever had and my pal had a Cubano sandwich. The bartender was very cordial and the USMC memorabilia... More

Been here before. The inside is like a museum to the Marine Corp. and law enforcement / FBI Academy. Unfortunately the service and food was less then acceptable. We had reservations for 6 PM, didn't start to get food served until 8 PM. Meals were cold, not what was ordered. We were told that many people without reservations came in.... More

Fantastic history, food, and service. This is "the place" to celebrate all things Marine. The Globe and Laurel has been host for all our family celebratory Marine gatherings. I suggest it highly. In addition, they are open during the day for mid-day post graduation celebrations.

This is a great place when you feel like going to a good old fashioned supper club. The cozy atmosphere and friendly service make up for the limited menu.

Visited here while on a business trip. The food was ok, but not of a quality I would want to return. The decor is interesting, but the food is so so. Had the prime rib but it was unremarkable. Neither my business partner or I particularly enjoyed our meals that much to want to return.

The Globe and Laurel has been in business since 1968 when founded by a retired Marine Major and his wife. The restaurant is frequented by many of the police officers who come to train at the FBI Academy. Consequently, the memorabilia collection is overwhelming with patches, badges, mugs, flags and so much more given to the Major by those patrons.... More

This Marine/Cop bar/restaurant was a good find for a late dinner while staying in the area. We ate in the bar because it has good clean air - the dining room is adjacent to a cigar lounge and was a little bit smoky. The bartender (an entomologist by education) was a great guy and told us some stories about the... More

We only stopped in for a couple of drinks. Cannot wait to visit the area and go for a nice long dinner. Bartender was awesome.

Worst dining experience ever. Not busy, but took 20 minutes to get menus, 50 minutes to get water. After an hour, a new waitress came out to take our order, saying the original waitress couldn't handle a group! (15, with a reservation). Food starting coming out an hour and 50 minutes after we arrived, but the last meal came out... More
