When visiting family in Southern Illinois we will sometimes take the opportunity to head further south to visit Lambert's Cafe. Never disappoints. My parents discovered this place back in the early 80's and I have been going ever since. I remember when it was actually a cafe. I remember Ole Norm walking around spooning fried potatoes onto my plate. Mmmmm... More

This is a fun place to go with the family because it is NOT uppity and stuffy, and the kids can talk without being shushed and poo pooed. They got the biggest kick out of the rolls being thrown to the tables! It's better than getting fast food, and you need to go have the experience of this place!

Brought some family for thier first visit. Everyone was very impressed with the food, fun and atmosphere. If you dont want to wait get there very early (like when they open). We arrived at 11 and were seated right away. However the wait when we left was over an hour. It is worth the wait.

We had a great time at Lambert's. It was crowded but we got in fast and easy. Our server was awesome and the kids loved the thrown rolls and extra pass around food! Take cash- They don't accept credit/debit.

Way better than any place that I have ever been. Amazing how you get all the stuff they throw and offer for free will definitely return.

It has been quite a few years since my first visit to Lambert's and it was exactly as I remembered. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is just as good if not better. Thrown rolls and free sides what could be better?! Just wish they had one of these out west! Can't wait to come back again.

Great food and large portions await any willing to wait in line or dodge rolls being thrown across the room. We have been here twice now and each time the food was good, service decent and portion sizes ungodly (It's the only meal you will need to eat for the day). The decor is a bunch of antiques and license... More

This is a place for a fun filled eating experience. Has great tasting menu, everyone is very friendly. We have been to all 3 of their locations, same experience at all 3. If anyone is near one of their locations strongly suggest you stop and eat you won't regret it.
