I'm sorry to be the only one to not give Lambert's a 5. I've eaten at all 3 locations several times over the past 20+ yrs. and I've never had a bad meal. And, have certainly never left hungry. If you've never tried Lambert's, there's nothing quite like it. It's got the down south country decor, charm and service. The... More

I have eaten here three times now and the food is always great. The staff make it a fun atmosphere, very family friendly. Highly recommended stop if you are anywhere around Springfield and definitely worth the trip if you are in Branson. Be prepared, they do not take plastic (credit/ debit cards) but they do have an atm machine on... More

"Throwed Rolls" its fun and the food is good. I recommend the Chicken Fried Steak. You will not leave hungry, more food than you care to eat. Prices reflect the unlimited amount of food you can eat, but are very fair. Service was great. I can see that it might get very busy, but we were there around 5:30 on... More

Servings were quite large. Waiters threw rolls across the room at you when you raised your hand for one. Waiters/waitresses brought bowls of food around to your table: fried okra, fried potatoes, macaroni & tomatoes, black-eyed peas. Food was excellent. No waiting. They do NOT accept credit cards! Cost was very reasonable.

The "throwed rolls" were hot and some of the best rolls I've ever had! There was so much food it was decadent and almost sad at the waste! Everything we tasted was wonderful. The okra was perfectly cooked to my taste...crispy, crunchy on the outside! Pricing was amazingly low considering you were given all the hot rolls, okra, fried potatoes,... More

We love this place! We arrived at about 9:45am on a Sunday because we didn't want to wait a long time to be seated when they opened at 10:30am. We were seated at 10:10 and our food arrived at exactly 10:30. Their portions are huge and the cost is reasonable. Shortly after we were seated, they were already throwing rolls... More

Lambert's is a must visit spot to eat when you are in the Ozarks. There usually is a wait, but it tends to go fast. The food is outstanding and the service is great. I recommend the fried chicken and the pork chops. The pass arounds and "throwed rolls" are unlimited and served at your table complimentary. I think I... More

Every time my family and I go to Branson we stop at Lamberts. It has become a family tradition. The food was amazing as usual. Our server was very very kind. The overall experience and atmosphere at Lamberts is unbeatable in my opinion. Our family will continue to stop here every time we go to Branson.

We took our 9 year for his first visit to the home of the throwed rolls, he had a good time and asked if we could come back next time we were through Springfield. The food was excellent and much more reasonably priced than I had anticipated. The waiting area we very crowded but the line moved pretty quick. The... More

If you have not been to Lammert's Café, home of the throwed rolls, then you must stop in while in Springfield. It is down home comfort food. Meatloaf, chicken-fried steak, 3 different ways to fix pork chops, chicken & dumplings; just to name a few. Your entrée is accompanied by sides of your choice, rolls "throwed" to you by a... More
