Abundance of homemade good food

I had special of chicken on rice with gravy. I had green beans and mashed potatoes on the side. They also come by with items called "pass arounds" which are freebie offers such as fried okra, potatoes, apple butter, Mac, tomatoes and cheese. Also received most wonderful homemade rolls. I hurt.

Our second visit to this location. We attempted to come here on a Friday and the line was amazingly ridiculous. We have never seen such a waiting line for a restaurant. Decided to come back another day. Came back again on a Monday. Arrived at 4pm, to avoid the crowds. Got right in and ordered. I had the roast beef... More

Good place to eat if you want a ton of home cooking choices...not really healthy but food is passed around family style..,so go hungry to get your money's worth. The "throwed rolls" are fun...get them to launch one to your kids from across restaurant. Gift shop is a bit pricey for t-shirts but again, lots of choices.

A kid threw up right in front of us as we walked in. We had to wait for the staff to clean it up - one of the staff members said to me that it happens all the time - gross! After that - I must say we had a really good time and the food was very good. The... More

Love Lambert's for good quality home cooked food. The portions are large with plenty of extra sharing food brought around. FYI: Cash or Checks no credit cards but a ATM in lobby is available!

Always wanted to go to a Lamberts and had the opportunity this trip. Food plentiful and excellent. Atmosphere very fun. Everyone enjoys the rolls flying through the air. Employees a fun, friendly team. When YMCA played, most of guests and employees broke into song. Would definitely return when in the Foley area. [18 miles from Orange Beach]

Such a great place to visit. The experience was so much fun. Make sure you bring a big appetite. The food was good and the servers were very friendly. The wait was long though due to the amount of people visiting. Worth visiting

Kids enjoyed the thrown rolls and pass arounds. Okra is the BEST! Menu offers something for everyone.

Firstly, when reviewing Lamberts, you must mention the "throwed rolls". When their rolls come out of the oven they have some young men that come out and yell "Hot Rolls!" At this point all you do is raise your hand and they will toss them to you...across the building if necessary. If you're the snooty type then please don't come... More
