I haven't been to this place in over 10 years, and it was as good as I remember!!! I got the meatloaf, and my 3 yo got the chicken tenders. There was enough left over to eat the next day!!! My son loved the rolls, and thought it was great that they tossed him one!!!! You may have to wait... read more

5 out of 5 for experience. 3 out of 5 for food. Wait time is over one hour. Over priced food. Fun to catch the hot rolls they throw. The best food item is the hot rolls. Food portions are decent. Our group liked Chicken fried steak, shrimp dinner. The pass around items were nothing great - wouldn't miss them... More

Lamberts is definitely a soul food type restaurant and definitely not the place for healthy and gluten free items except a few salads and possibly a vegetable plate but I love the atmosphere and its a great treat to have if you are getting off your diet for vacation! The portions are large and the prices are very reasonable!! Just... More

For such a talked about restaurant, I expected it to be more organized we sat for almost 2 hours before any of the pass arounds came and then the waitress poured tea in my root beer and never came back to fix it. it was just totally a let down ,

The average wait time is well over an hour. When it's hot outside, the wait can be miserable. That being said, the wait is definitely worth it. From home made meat loaf to fried shrimp. The food is absolutely great. And of course the Throwed Rolls. Yes, they actually throw them at you, I mean to you. The servers are... More

Excellent food and fun dining experience. Where else is throwing food (rolls) appropriate? Staff was pleasant and fun. Portion sizes were very extreme, though. The salad in the huge bread bowl is a little wasteful....noone can eat that much salad or bread for that matter! Loved the pass-around sides.

Stopping at Lamberts is a family tradition! Our kids love catching and, more than that, eating the hot rolls. Great atmosphere, good food, it's just a nice place to take the family.

We had heard that this was the place to go because the food was great. We were very dissatisfied and disappointed. Cracker Barrel is much better in our opinion.
