The Globe & Laurel was established in 1968 at 509 Broadway in the town of Quantico. In 1975, it relocated to Triangle, Virginia. The Globe & Laurel moved south in 2008 to its current location, 3987 Jefferson Davis Hwy., in historic Stafford, Virginia. The charm, atmosphere and camaraderie of the Globe & Laurel have been mentioned in numerous books and periodicals, which include: "War Stories" on Fox News, The History Channel, The Washington Times, Mystery novels by Patricia Cornwell , August Patriot by Leland Stephens, A Portrait of the Stars and Stripes by Bud Hanning, Navy / Marine Times and Restaurants USA. Major Rick Spooner (USMC Ret.) and his wife, Gloria, want their restaurant to honor the men and women who "strap on a sidearm or wear a uniform or a badge" in service to this great country. This restaurant is dedicated to fine dining and the perpetuation of the proud history and traditions of our corps of Marines.
