Stopped in for lunch and had the roast beef. ($14) I Way too much food. I ordered the roast beef. It came with two sides so I ordered cole slaw and a baked potato. I didnt realize it came with mashed potatos. That's a pretty large lunch so I was shocked when they brought these HUGE rolls around ( should... More

I've heard a lot about this place and since I was only 45 minutes away decided it was worth the drive. First off, the whole place could use some scrubbing. It's older and the bathroom wasn't that clean. Secondly, if you're going there for quality it is definitely lacking. This is a place to "all you can eat" and fill... More

Home of the "throwed Rolls", Yes got one and they were good - didn't get another, though tried to get the servers attention. The decor was interesting rustic. Ordered the barbeque sandwich which was good, but the baked sweet potato was watery and almost mush. For "pass arounds" that some actually stopped by: . Had the fried potato with onion... More

We went because everyone said we had too. Throwed rolls...... big deal. I didn't see the attraction. We took a young kid and he got a kick out of it. Food - more quantity than quality. Heavy, salty, starchy..... Wasn't impressed at all. Service was sketchy and scatter-brained. Won't be back or recommending to anyone .

Lambert is a very unique place. My wife and I ate there for lunch and came home with enough for dinner. The servers keep walking around with bowls of fried everything and there's someone always ready to toss y'all a huge hot dinner role. Worth a try.

We absolutely love this place! It's super kid friendly, great food, good prices and a blast with catching the thrower rolls! Plus, the hog jowls and fried potatoes are insanely good!

This is a must go to place the food is as country as it gets . Food galore if you need a role hold up your hand and it's on the way from across the room but really it's the best country cooking restaurant in foley alabama

Always a great place with fun atmosphere. Yes they throw rolls across the room! No need for a mit to catch one.
