Wonderful meal, we both ate the chicken fried steaks with white gravy. As always we had to take some home. I love Lambert's. We will be back. No negatives.

Lambert's is always a great place to stop. Food is great, but the rolls are the BEST! It's fun to have them thrown to you. Make sure you are hungry when you arrive because Lambert's will serve you a lot of food! They do not accept credit/debit cards but they do accept checks. There's also a gift shop to take... More

In town over night and a friend recommended Lambert's. Glad we took his advice. Hubby got the hamburger steak and I ordered the chicken (small) fried steak, it was humongous! Our waitress Bethany was super sweet. And we both caught our rolls. Everything was fantastic

It had been years since we'd gone to a Lambert's, and apparently I'd blocked how bad it was from my mind because I let my husband convince me to try it for his birthday dinner. The chicken pot pie was just ok, but everything else was slathered in grease. The famous hot rolls were very hard - I guess for... More

Doesn't get more southern hospitality than Lambert's. From the moment you enter to paying the tab . It's entertainment and a meal

Ate with my family of 8. They carry around big bowls of sides such as fried potatoes and okra. You can have as much as you want of all sides. They come through periodically with hot, fresh buttered rolls and throw them to everyone! When the entrees came, they were huge portions! Everything tasted wonderful and the atmosphere was lively...

My first time to go to Lambert's and it was part of my grand weekend trip with my sweetheart. We went for dinnner had about a 45 min wait but it was worth the wait. We both ordered center cut ham steaks which were huge and they were great, came with 2 sides and all the extras. It was fun... More

What is not to like. We arrived at 1:00 PM thinking the lunch crowd was at the end but the waiting line was long. This restaurant moves folks fast. Their process is interesting as to how many folks they can serve. The special thing is "The Home Of The Thrown Roll" . We had just been seated then two Hot... More

We were with locals who helped us navigate the menu and the free food you are served while waiting for your meal, which you will take home with you. The drinks are half gallon! The "throwed rolls" are amazing and delicious. The fried okra was outstanding! We had a delightful time in every respect. We did take our excellent sandwiches... More
