My kids love going to Lambert's but after today we are really shaking our heads. We were told it would be a 2 hour wait because they had a party of 400. They accepted a group of 400 people at lunch on one of the busiest weeks of the summer. In my opinion that is a very poor management decision.

The service is very good and the people are friendly. Besides receiving a generous portion you will be offered family style sides. When you want a fresh hot roll just raise your hand. They'll throw one to you.

Expect a long wait but lots of good food and fun. Our waiter was good and provided great service. Watching the ole boy throw the rolls was fun as his aim was right on. Food was pretty good with more than enough you will not go away hungry.

This place is all about the experience. Don't get me wrong the food isn't bad but it's not the best I have ever had. The thrown rolls are worth the trip and they are very good. You get huge portions so go hungry.

The atmosphere is so energetic and fun! The waiters are usually kind and attentive! My family always has a blast and leaves with a very full stomach and lots of leftovers! Plus it's always fun to catch the rolls!

Lots of parking lots on rear. It open at 10:30 we arrived at 10:50 am. The back parking lots were empty and there was about 40 cars in parking lot. This is a (CASH ONLY) buisness. They have an ATM that charges $5.00. The hostess told us it would be over 1 hour wait. My group decided to leave due... More

Food, hospitality, service, atmosphere, and cost were all 5 stars. We will always make this a dining experience of ours. Some of our family couldn't make this trip but we told them all about it. I had been told about Lambert's and nothing disappointed me, not even the wait. It was well worth it.

This restaurant is a must stop if you are visiting the Gulf Shores area! They are very friendly and the shareables are wonderful. Just make sure you go early to try and beat the crowd, as there's always a line.

If you are from the South it just reminds me of grandmaws cooking, but nothing that really wowed me since I am use to eating this kind of food. If you R from the north and want some southern Food, this place is it! We had to wait 2 HOURS in line which was ridiculous!

Fun atmosphere. The grandkids loved the throwed rolls. I loved the fried taters!!! Food is very good & they serve large portions. Wait time is always long but well worth the wait.

Thank Theresa F
