Hope you are hungry. Usually there is a wait list. The food and service are always good. The conning rolls cost extra. The black strap molasses is extra yummy. They do take credit cards now.

Just got back from Lambert’s and Sunday evenings are the best time to go. The parking spots were great, the food was amazing, and there were tons of rolls and pass around a for us. We had no wait time and the food came quickly.

This is always a great place to stop for lunch or dinner. Make sure you’re hungry when you get there and don’t fill up too much on extras (which are delicious), but save room for the entree. Great home cooked food. Careful to not get...More

Food was awesome...but the experience was better. Staff incredibly friendly and efficient. Hog Jowel sample we were given was HUGE...and delicious. LOVED the okra and other fixings constantly brought to table.

Lambert’s is not a buffet but the pass around sides are all you want. The prices are the same all day. The entrees are large servings.
