First of all...if you are on a strict diet or are a vegetarian, this might not be your place. While sometimes it might be quite the wait, it is worth it. I suggest that you arrive after the lunch crowd or early before the dinner crowd. Of course the draw to Lamberts is the rolls which they toss or throw... More

We came to eat at 6:30 pm. Only had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Food was good as always. Average meal is about $13 pp. Everyone always leaves with doggie bags. There's also a gift shop on site.

Lambert's is a place to include if you want to sample local food. In addition to a selection of country meals, many including two side orders, staff wander around throwing hot dinner rolls and spooning out generous helpings of fried okra, fried potatoes, tomato & macaroni, and black eyed peas. I enjoyed the chicken fried steak and my wife liked... More

We stopped here because one of our group of 6 had never been to Lambert's. We wanted her to experience what we had on previous trips, which had always been great. First they sat us at quite possibly the worst seat in the place. I realize that's just the luck of the draw but disappointing as our friend did not... More

I always try to stop if I'm near a Lamberts . Good old country food like your Grandma or Great Grandma used to make . Always a wait to be seated . Don't be in a hurry and you will have an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it !

this restaurant is kinda neat. it's the home of the throwed rolls so, of course, they're going to chuck your rolls at you to catch. and, if you don't catch them, no worries, they'll still give you another... lol. they give you molasses to go on the rolls and. holy moly, that's good! they also have food that you get...
