Denver Restaurants: The Lobby

After a hectic cab ride to the Enterprise in a construction ridden, sketchy looking area, our car wasn’t ready. Yay. So, we asked if there was anywhere around to eat. The tap room (Great Divide) we wanted to stop at and have a drink didn’t open until 2 and it was 1pm. They pointed us to The Lobby.

It’s located in Denver’s Ballpark Neighborhood, only blocks away from Coors Field, LoDo, and Downtown Denver and the Enterprise. 🙂

From The Lobby website: “Located in what was once the lobby of this historic building, The Lobby, an “Inspired American Grille,” has kept some of the original Victorian feel while infusing modern comfort with stately character. Original exposed brick work and hardwood floors blend beautifully with modern tile and lighting. The Lobby’s large patio sits in a European-style garden courtyard. ”

This was a really cool place. The patio was awesome and we had a server with a wonderful personality. She told us that they think the building actually used to be a brothel. And that the place is seriously haunted, specifically the area where they keep their liquor.

After getting her suggestions and confirmation of what’s good on the menu, I ordered the Maple Grilled Ham Sandwich. This sandwich is not for wuzzes. It’s not just a ham sandwich.

It came with 2 massively thick maple cured pieces of ham, topped with sliced Granny Smith apples, melted Brie and caramelized onions on a light and soft sourdough hoggie bun. Their house made fries were perfect with their also house-made ranch dressing.

My husband got The Rachel sandwich. It came with a huge cheese omelet that enclosed oozing Cheddar cheese, topped with peppery bacon and aioli on a sourdough hoggie with a side of tater tots.
We paired our sandwiches with Great Divide Pale Ale- hoppy & crisp and Great Divide Wheat – a lemony summer brew.

There was some other great looking stuff on their menu too. Their burgers are supposed to be great and the grilled Brie cheese for an app looked pretty sweet. Overall, it’s a really chill and laid back place to enjoy a sunny Denver afternoon. Check them out.
