The Lobby is at heart a neighborhood restaurant and bar dishing up American fare that will make you feel right at home. Originally opened in 2009 The Lobby has continuously strived to be an oasis in the city with no fear of adapting to our ever-evolving guests. With a new vision and fresh energy, we have created a menu that fits our new mantra: Playful Eats. Serious Drinks. With 22 Colorado drafts, our famous bottomless mimosas, a seasonal cocktail list and a historic building that features the unique and beautiful Courtyard Patio, we're here for you to gather, feast and imbibe. We are proud to be a family owned business, and endeavor to support other Colorado owned businesses whenever we can. When possible, we make all of our dishes are made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients, including those from our neighbors at Happy Leaf Kombucha and Great Divide Brewing Company. We are avid supporters of Colorado breweries and distilleries, featuring a rotating and growing selection that compliments the seasons and our menu. Please, enjoy your time at The Lobby, tell all of your friends, and let us know what you think!

Went to The Lobby on the recommendation of my son. When all said and done, was very pleased and would go back any time I am in Denver. Was greeted by the manager, Jason, and made to feel welcome. What was really amazing, was that he did not hang back and manage. He was truly involved with the customers, making... More

We were there as a family group for Sunday brunch. The Lobby has bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Marys, etc. This does tend to draw quite a crowd. In spite of the crowd that formed after we arrived, service was good and we never felt rushed. I ordered a pickled vegetable plate and green chili. The pickled vegetables included asparagus, onions, snow... More

Nice outdoor area - good selection on menu. Vegetarian green chile is a "no" however, not much to it, more like a hot salsa, yet they serve it as a soup. Plenty of better choices in Denver, however, if you want to make reservations on Open Table - and are doing it last minute on the weekend -- not so... More

I've been here a handful of times over the years, mostly for brunch and have typically had a pretty good experience. The food is nothing amazing but it is decent and service is usually pretty fast and friendly. The most recent visit makes me afraid to go back. We were celebrating a birthday and our waitress was extremely rude. There... More

Came on weekend morning for light snacks. Blue Balls had hot and crunchy surface and cool blue/cream cheese filling (delicate touch on the blue cheese---just enough to pique interest), worked perfectly with slightly spicy chutney. Smoked salmon on cucumber slices are an old combination, but enlivened with playful horseradish cream and lemon zest---a very nice creation.

We go here from time to time because the staff is friendly and attentive, the beer selection is very good, and the food is decent. Not a place for foodies, but if you want to sit in a hidden garden on a hot summer day with your choice of tasty cold beers (and who doesn't want to do that?), give... More

A great place for dinner and beer, especially when sitting outside in the patio garden on a warm August evening. Very welcoming and nice staff. We found the food very good (the meat loaf was excellent). Large selection of beers. The place is some way outside the Lower Downtown area; if you walk there in the evening, be careful not... More

The Lobby is located a bit off the beaten path downtown, which probably explains why they were not terribly busy at 7:30 pm on a Friday evening. They have a good size patio that makes you feel like you are dining in a park or someone's backyard. There were trees all around and grass – uncommon for most patios in... More

We came from Hawaii hearing the Great Divide had the best local micro beers. After walking there we were disappointed because clearly not a place for our toddler. But next door there was The Lobby. The historic building now restaurant was very child friendly despite the Yelp review that said no kids. They even had fresh milk and cookies after... More
