Great and fun as always

This place never disappoints! Enjoyed a delicious lunch of chicken & dumplings. The side dishes and pass-arounds are really good and of course the rolls are the bomb! Our waitress was delightful and helpful.

We were told that lamberts was a great place to eat so we decided to go there for dinner when in gulf shores on vacation. Well, the throwed rolls were excellent. Service was good. However, I cannot say the same about the food. My daughter had pork chops and they were dry. I had the country fried steak and it... More

This trip to Lambert's was especially memorable because my son is now 7 and really wanted to catch rolls. The guy doing it kept throwing him rolls even though he'd gotten more than he could eat, just letting him have a good time. Of course we took them home to keep from wasting them. I'm sure my kids will treasure... More

The food is absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere too! But if you love ham, black eyed peas, huge rolls with Apple butter, cabbage and fried okra, you will enjoy this place we promise! There is plenty of food choices available!

Great big ole country restaurant terrific fried okra! Love the huge glasses of tea. . Tons of food. The pass a rounds are outstanding. The food is worth the wait. You end up leaving with enough food for the next day. Best time to go is in sept after all the kids go back to school,

Great food, and it was also so much fun!!! It's fun if and when you want a roll- just indicate by waving, or shouting at "The Roll Thrower". They try to be exactly right-on with their target(s) = known as the "Patrons" or customers trying to eat...safely - that's the wierd part, try to enjoy your meal ALL THE WHILE... More

Fun place for a change on what Cracker Barrel offers as for environment. Quite a lot of food was flowing outside of what each of us offered. It was quite sinful the amt. of food that was there, but the gimmick of how it was served and part of the meal price was interesting to say the least. They did... More

This is one of those places you can't miss when visiting the Gulf Coast of Alabama. It is a fun environment. You are sure to leave full. While you await your order, the workers bring fried patatos by, fried okra, among other things. You are full before you get the food you actually ordered. The workers also throw rolls to... More

We had eaten previously at the Lambert's Cafe II in Ozark, MO. We had high expectations after eating there. We were not disappointed. We had the same great service and great food. Should you be in Foley, stop by here Lambert's is an experience that will not disappoint. There will be a wait and they only take cash or check.... More
