A word from The Lobby - Denver
At The Lobby, we aim to be your new home away from home. Get a great Colorado craft beer (we have 12 on draft, and more in bottles and cans!), enjoy some specialty cocktails, and have dreams about the bacon. Our menu is American, concentrating on twists of some of your childhood favorites. Triple Decker Grilled Cheese, Carbomb French Toast, Mama's Meatloaf Sammy and Stuffed Burgers are some of our most popular! We also specialize in killer brunch, accompanied by the best bottomless mimosas in town!

We want you to grab all of your friends and come in for a family meal, so we can easily accommodate groups from 2 to 25 whether you make a reservation, call while you're on your way, or just show up! Though, reservations are always suggested and appreciated! Have a group larger than 25? Contact our Purveyor of Good Times to plan your special event for up to 300 people!

Diner Reviews
  • "My friends and I went for Easter brunch which can be hectic at any restaurant. The staff at the Lobby was spot on and everything went very smoothly and the service was fantastic. The menu was creative and very well executed. We will definitely go back. "

  • "I tried this restaurant with a groupon type voucher and couldn't have been happier. The server did not make us feel inferior for using the voucher (you'd be surprised that this happens) and she was great at suggesting items on the menu for us to try. The voucher was for several courses and she even took our order in different pieces so we didn't feel rushed at ordering all at once. It was a great experience and I will definitely go back."

  • "Seems the bottomless mimosa was a big hit, looking around the room. The food was mostly carb loaded so be ware. We were a table of two (women) maybe that had something to do with the fact the service was poor; had to ask for table service, had no salt/pepper on the table had to ask for that, soup was served and had to ask for a soup spoon, service came with a fort and knife.. Our appetizer/soup/entrée all arrived at the same TIME! Poor planning by the wait staff.or maybe they wanted us served so they could get to the table of 8 next to us. Door to the patio opens to main dinning room and "cold" air meant we kept our coats on. I did leave 20% tip so maybe that next time someone over the age of 28 comes in service will improve."

  • "On a Friday night, we found a parking place 2 blocks away. At 6:30pm, this was a scary neighborhood. There was quite a strong police presence on the streets. It appeared we were walking through a crime scene. As we continued our walk to The Lobby, we saw people on the streets looking through garbage cans, "sleeping" on the sidewalks, etc. The Lobby itself is a friendly restaurant; nice waitress; nice atmosphere; good burgers; good selection of beers. The salmon was very mediocre...pretty bland. Also I would pass on the desserts. We got 3 different desserts and all were below average. If you go to this restaurant at night, try to get a parking place directly in front of the restaurant ."

  • "A great dinner here! Included appetizers to share,(Green Chili is spicy!) Pork and Apples , perfectly cooked Salmon, and this delicious Kazookie dessert, which is a slightly under baked warm cookie and a scoop of Oreo ice cream. It is an out of the way place at 22nd and Arapahoe, but a great outdoor space too for the summer months. Really nice and friendly server!"

  • "The food was excellent and there is a nice selection of wines and cocktails. The beer cheese soup and the blue cheese balls are 2 of their excellent appetizers. I liked that the portion sizes are reasonable - you can have an appetizer, entree, and dessert without guilt. The menu is cleverly divided in sections, and the brunch offerings are a reason to keep going back. There is a great patio that will be full in the warmer months, and a parking lot next door. A win-win all around."

  • "When we arrived we compared the regular menu to the 5280 week menu. $4 difference. Not much of a deal if you ask me but we decided to try it out anyway. Big mistake, HUGE. While the food was tolerable it was definitely not worth $30. The chocolate mouse was chunky, the penne a la vodka was simply noodles and canned sauce in a tiny bowl. The best part was the potato leek soup but how hard is it to mess that up. As bad as the food was it was nothing compared to the service. It took until our second course to get utensils. Our water was never refilled and our waiter disappeared. Once we finally recieved our bill it took 40 min to flag anyone down at the restaurant to actually pay. We should have just walked out. Stay away from the Lobby!"

  • "The appetizers were the best part of the meal. As a group we were able to try them all. The entrées left a little to be desired. The salmon was the best by far. The penne was ok, needs more sauce and maybe a protein. Desert was very good as well. We were seated in the basement where it was a bit chilly. Overall we were very pleased with our experience."

  • "It was dead on a Thursday night, even though it was restaurant week, but the food was yummy and the service was great. Can't wait to go back in the summer and hang out on the patio!"

  • "I've been to several iterations of restaurants in this building...it is an old classic on the northern edge of downtown. The owners are good folks, they serve good food at reasonable prices, in a unique space."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Took some friends from out of town there for a Sunday brunch. It was yummy casual food that definitely wasn't generic. The bottomless mimosas were a great deal. Tons of people were there for brunch so be sure to make a reservation."

  • "I had read that The Lobby had good food, but still was surprised to find such good food in such a casual environment. We'll go back!"

  • "Great green chilli and excellent vegitarian green chilli. Best bottomless mimosas in Denver."

  • "Really interesting menu with breakfast/brunch served any time as well as all the other courses available. Friendly, appealing atmosphere. Moderate noise level encouraged talking! Very pleasant and not typical of the current Denver restaurant scene."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This place was great! Interesting menu with a variety of items. Tater tots with lots of goodies on top and a stuffed burger? Yes, please! The building is beautiful and when summer hits the outside is a great place to have beers. The brunch menu looks amazing and $10 bottomless mimosas!"

  • "This was our second trip to The Lobby. Food, again, was outstanding. Cheese soup, grilled cheese, "boomer" tots (truffle oil and pesto), apples and pork chops, and salmon with a wasabi sauce were all raved about. And then the drinks! Actually really good cocktails that weren't the usual fare. Definitely will be back."

  • "The house potatoes are delish! I don't know what the restaurant does to bacon but it is incredible. The eggs were fine. Toast was not toasted enough. I had to ask for a refill on my coffee and jelly for the toast. The jelly was a jelly with seeds, which I can't stand and here is the kicker-they charged me for it. Bad form! I really enjoyed the food, except my expensive jelly but the service was not great and seriously-toast without jelly? What is the point? I have reccomended the Lobby to people before but I have to say-I was really put off by the charge for the jelly. It isn't the amount-it's the idea of charging me for condiments. If I tell anyone else about the Lobby, I will let them know they need to bring their own jelly."

  • "Was a quiet dining experience until around 8:30 pm., when the bar crowd started to arrive. Wait staff said that their weekend brunch and patio was a good thing to experience. their salmon entrée was really good, however, the pork loin my husband ordered was really dry. We had a great campanade appetizer and great choices of beers. Overall, it was a good experience and we will go back to sample their brunch venue sometime this summer and enjoy the great patio."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Loved the venue. Smack in the middle of LoDo and close to stadium, yet the courtyard has charm and is nicely sheltered while getting plenty of sunshine. Food was tasty, non-fussy and plentiful. Three of us went for a late lunch, so it was quiet and we had attentive servers who offered their own favorites when questioned- all to good result. Will go again!"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "My friends and i have a love/hate relationship with the Lobby.... its a convenient place to go and get drinks but we cannot stand the food. I have had several terrible brunch meals there, and dinner proved to be better, but still pretty gross. The menu also lacks in depth and creativity. For such a gorgeous building and great ambiance, they DEFINITELY need to revamp the food. I wish i could say I am excited to go back buuuuut...."

  • "We waited until the last minute to make reservations for dinner so I was happy when I came across The Lobby and their New Years Eve Pre-Fixe menu ($40 per person) w/ optional wine paring ($18). Our reservation was for 9:15, it took a little while before we were acknowledged. I liked the location of our booth but was surprised by the tears in the material. I ordered the pre-fixe menu w/ wine pairing and found the prime rib to be average. The wine was decent but would hardly call it a pairing. I was not told what the wine was nor how it paired as you would be with a traditional pairing. My bf ordered the pork and apples form their regular menu and while the waitress said it was one for the best things on the menu, it was average at best."

  • "Space is nice, staff is good and attentive but the food was fairly pedestrian. The chicken fried biscuits and gravy breakfast was so salty it was inedible. The service would have received a higher rating if they had noticed the uneaten meal and asked why it was unfinished."

  • "Went on a Tuesday night @ 6:30 ...was not aware that it is also stand up comedy night. The server was very attentive and made great recommendations. The food was good...the green chile tater tots were great. Also really enjoyed the Diablo stuffed burger. Overall great experience. But just know that on Tuesday you're gonna get comedy and some adult humor with your meal/drinks. If you want it a little more low key ask to be seated downstairs."

  • "Enjoyed it although it was about "0" degrees out so it is hard to check many of the recommendations. Food was good and service was excellent."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "I haven't spent much time in this part of town and had never heard of the Lobby, even though our server said it's been open four years. It was pretty slow for a Saturday night, which, while not good for the restaurant, was great for us because we had excellent service (ask to sit in Diego's section if you go). Our meal was decent - traditional pub fare, nothing really outstanding but just good food. The place definitely has a welcoming, neighborhood feel. I absolutely plan to go back and try their brunch and I can't wait for the warm weather to come back so I can join in some happy hours in their expansive courtyard."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Great atmosphere, friendly staff, but a couple menu items did not come out as described on the menu, and the food runner obviously didn't know the menu because she argued with my friend about it, rather than fixing it, and when they fixed my other friends' salad it came back out to the table with 1/4th the amount of lettuce. Also they should've had another bartender because drink service to our table was EXTREMELY slow. In all fairness, the restaurant was absolutely slammed though"

  • "This is a great place for a group brunch! Usually filled with 20-somethings, I highly recommend it after a night out on the town :) Bottomless mimosas in the form of towers make it especially awesome when there are 5 or more of you! I definitely recommend the smothered tots (they have several varities but the green chili are awesome!) and the chicken fried chicken is my hands-down favorite! I recommend making a reservation or you will defintely have a wait."

  • "My husband and I have been eating at The Lobby since it first opened. We loved this place. However, within the last 8 months or so, The Lobby has steadily gone down hill. I don't know what has happened, but the food has been consistently bad. The menu has changed a lot, and not for the better. We used to make a special trip for their stuffed burgers and blue cheese balls. The cheese balls are nothing like they used to be and the burger selection is not what it used to be. This time I ordered a chicken dish that was mediocre at best. My husband tried one of the new stuffed burgers and was dissatisfied. Unfortunately, I think this was our last ditch effort to hold on to one of our old favorites. I doubt we return."
