Comfort food, worth the wait

At 2:30 on a Wednesday afternoon, we had to wait for 30 minutes. Lambert's does a terrific job get customers in and out of their restaurant. The comfort food quantity is more that the average person can eat at one sitting. Most folks leave with a doggie bag. The wait staff does an amazing job... read more

Wow! What a fun experience! On our way out of Branson, we decided to make one last stop before ending our vacation - Lambert's Cafe II​. It was delicious and fun, and we actually caught our "throwed" rolls. Our server, Jordan, was a friendly young man with a great sense of humor. It's a bit pricey, but worth it for... More

The place opened at 10:30 and was full at 10:31. The food is plentiful, but salty. Great energy from the roll thrower. We left stuffed at 11:45 and the wait was 2 hours...

Maybe because of it being July 3rd, but very disappointed to hear the wait would be an hour and a half and that was at 3pm. Can't imagine what would have been at meal time!!

Not what it used to be. We have been going to Lamberts for years and lately we have noticed them slipping. Service and food is mediocre at best and given by high school kids. The rolls and pass around that they are known for come around less and less. You will still be uncomfortably full when you leave and the... More

If hungry, this is the place to go. Oh the throwed rolls are to die for. Can make a meal on them alone. The entrees are plentiful, country cooked and delicious and the passarounds are fantastic and so good. Service is always good. Be prepared to wait a LONG time because no matter what time you go, there is always... More

Carried our grandson to Lambert's so he could see the throwing of the rolls. We ordered chicken strips, chicken friend steak and hamburger steak. All was very tasty, but way more food than a person should eat, but we did eat it all. The hot rolls, with butter and sorghum syrup or honey are great, but you have to be... More

OK - so you hate to hear - "that'll be about 35 minutes for a table"...but we'd come this far...so wait we did. It was great - good food, great fun and hot "throwed" rolls. The staff is super - fun, attentive and always at the ready. We decided to make it our main meal - but there was so... More

We have been talking about going to Lambert's for several years but every time we are nearby it hasn't worked out. We finally made it this trip. We arrived at 4pm hoping it wouldn't be as busy but there was a line across the whole front of the building. Decided to go ahead and wait so after an hour we... More
