We looked for this for a fast lunch in Elizabeth. This place is a club. Quite big. Many noisy TVs. We had happy hour food and drinks. Great latin music
It was CLOSED!!!!’ Had to go somewhere else! You should notify sites that take reservations on your behalf that you don’t be open!
We were referred to The Lobby by our hotel front desk people as a place for our family, children and grandchildren to have dinner.
When we arrived we encountered what is a night club with extremely loud music, a bouncer at the door and were told you could order food there, but basically it was a nightclub with dancing and lots of alcohol.
We went inside to the hostess desk where they explained the above overview of their establishment. We thanked them and asked them to cancel our open table reservation because it was not suitable for our family to sit down to eat.
The manager said they understood our position and we thanked them for explaining things to us. I told them I was sorry our hotel was not thoughtful in their referral.
We booked thinking it was more a restaurant lounge but it's really more of a bar/club that serves food. All tables are high tops, music a bit too loud for conversation and service is mediocre. Food however was very good and especially for the price. This is a great hangout, fun- night out type of place. So if you have the right expectation you should be good to go.
Food and atmosphere were excellent. Service was middling. Perhaps I'll sit at the bar next time I decide to go.
Great place, food and sercice.. and their Jack Punch is delicious..
Lucy is the best worker ever
The bartender was so awesome. She was the best and took care of the customer like a good friend
Lobby was Awesome as always. Had a great time with the Boo on Date Night! Food, Sangria, Hookah, Music, couldnt ask for a better night! :-)
The bottle are not worth 280 and the owner is very arrogant
We should have asked to sit inside. Very loud outside. Should have asked what was going to be on screens soccer is not our thing. Service was slow but courteous.
Enjoyed the food, ambiance, and huge televisions. Ample food portions for the prices.
Food is amazing, atmosphere is beautiful. Can't wait to go back again
The calamari was bad over cooked rubbery informed our waiter he seem to careless. He was not attentive at all..
My boyfriend and I went for date night and it was great! We had a good time listening to the music and playing pool. He is also from out of town the Lobby reminded him of a place he use to go to back at home in Flordia. We will certainly be back again for date night soon.
The food was mediocre. The drinks were not good at all. The service was poor. The music was so loud it is a bar \lounge trying to look as if it is a restaurant.
There should be an actual hostess, waiter for each table to be as attentive as can be. The prices for happy hour are extremely misleading and not competitive with other places. If you want this place to be of a higher scale, chairs are tearing in the seats, the cheesecake needs to be thrown out. This place can be highly successful if the right things are out in place.
This was my first time in a restaurant/bar where men are patted down in a weapons-check at the door. No, I'm not kidding. Food was bar-type food and the soup was fine, as were the entrees we ordered. As bar food goes, it was average. Service was slow and haphazard...bring the food, ask for flatware, they bring that then you have to ask for a napkin-type place.
We were there mid-week and the ambiance was a bit flat, but so it goes with most restaurants mid-week. Looked to me like this place is likely hopping with dodgy characters at the weekend (color-changing lighted chandelier was a clue) but certainly not my cup of tea.
The bouncer at the door patting men down was a definite turn-off and as soon as the last morsel passed my lips, I was out the door. Dodgy.
Great food and awesome atmosphere. Great service. Some of my friends have complained that it's too loud and that they play too much Spanish music but all I have to say to that is that Lobby is a sports bar and located in Elizabeth which is a town of mostly Hispanics or of Hispanic descent.
My boyfriend and I went her to have a night out of the house and away from everything, played pool, had a few drinks and had the "Diablo wings" awesome very great tasting wings. Recommended to ages 20-40 spot is really laid back.
Aside from one rude Hostess at the front, I really like this place! Our server was really nice and gave us a good deal on our bottles! It's a perfect fusion of nightclub & bar! The outside patio is nice and perfect during those summer nights! I do recommend this place and will be back!
It was overall ok. The inside was too dim and the parking was horrible. The outdoors was great. It was festive and fun out there totally different vibe.
Made reservations for 6, got there early and the reception was cold, the place was empty but they didnt want to sit us early. when we convinced them to sit us they out us at a table which buy the window and the sun was setting, we asked not to sit there because of the. glare, they would not move us. They need to but blinds and or shades if you are going to make people sit in the sun. food was god and waiter was good, but the reception and where we sat ruined our experience . The place was still empty when we left, they could have sat us elsewhere
first of all just a book and reserve a table take me 2 weeks because people get seen a call back for somebody in particular instead of offering call back. they advertise tall tower vases drinks for $40 but tall tower vases were broken from washing incorrectly and I could have the drink I wanted. I suggested putting in pitchers they said it couldn't do that. they were not willing to accommodate for the tall drink in any way an offer that me and my girlfriends share one drink together. I told the manager I don't share drinks with my girlfriends its not that kind of party. I kindly got up and took my entire party with me and we all left. We went to another restaurant.
Food was great ,staff very friendly , prices reasonable and one thing we saw it was full of security not just in the doors but everywhere , even by the female bathroom. It make me feel good especially when you have people drinking.
Took my father here for father's day. Although the music was very loud it was such a nice venue aesthetically we didn't mind talking at a few octaves higher then usual. The food was reasonably priced and delicious!!!! The drinks were well made but I just wished I had saw my waiter more often. When she did come around she was polite but she only came around after I asked 6 other waiters if they could get my waitresses. Other then that I had a ball and so did my dad. Definitely going to go back and try something new on the menu. Hopefully I get a waitress that's a little more attentive.
Love the place but need more variety with music - too much Latino / Spanish music.
Had an array for apps, each one delicious! Too bad the service ruined it. From the entrance, hostess was not inviting. Waitress was by bar on her cell phone Mia the entire time. Place had only 3 tables and it took the bartender 15 mins to pour us two drafts.
It was a great night. All of our friends loved it and said how they would like to go back especially for the outside cabanas.
My only thing I didn't like is how they had one tab per table. It should be separated as requested my the guests.
Went to The Lobby for birthday drinks and thoroughly enjoyed atmosphere and drinks. Can't wait to go outside!
I had a lovely evening, the environment is so relaxed during the week. Service was great as well as the food!
This place has great food and recently updated their menu which I enjoy! People are friendly the place is clean and laid back.
Wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived but the food was great, the atmosphere was alive, there was a good crowd, and the music was amazing the entire night.
Stopped in after attending a wine tasting event. The crowd and dj was live! We were on the dance floor all night!
Came here on Valentine's Day with a girlfriend of mine and we had a blast! Great music, as. the dj played a mix of hip hop, reggae, Spanish, etc. There was no cover charge for females but only $10 for males. Valet parking was $5. Very inexpensive place with a great vibe. Awesome place to eat, dance. and socialize.
Went for drinks with friends, great ambience, good drinks (sangria not so good). Wait staff was amazing. Would definitely go back.
The ambiance was nice. The food was ok (could have been better) But the service sucked!!! The waiter was extremely slow with EVERYTHING! I had to find him for anything we needed and when I did find him he took forever to come back. Overall, I dont think i'll be going back.
Always a great burger.
I live not to far from the Lobby and being new to the neighborhood. ..I have yet to go anywhere else. I continue to frequent over over...hmmmm somebody's doing something right
Been twice. .1st time it was all good.This time the food was not very good.it was all prepackaged and your pina colada was made with a store brought mix..need to step it up and make real drinks and hire a chef for your prices and what people end up spending. But the atmosphere was awesome. .
