Had heard of Lambert's from family who had been there and recommended it. Their claim to fame is the "Throwed Roll" Waiters walk around with baskets of freshly baked rolls and throw them across the room to anyone who holds upon their hand. It is big room and the throw can be 50 feet. The accuracy is not always perfect... More

The roll guy came around but no apple butter or molasses till 10 minutes later. Wife had catfish it was good, I had chicken pot pie,... More

Absolutely wonderful dining experience. More choices and portions than one can consume. The pass around are one of my favorites. The rolls are amazing. Would like to have seen the roll thrower be happier, and the sorghum following the hot rolls alittle closer. Our server was great. Looking forward to our next visit already.

I saw this on Diners Drive-Institute and Dives and saw how much fun it was to eat here.Experienced for myself and they weren't lying. The food was awesome, the rolls were HUGE and was very entertaining. Would definitely recommend this but make sure you get there as early as possible or you will be waiting in line.

Excellent place to eat - all kinds of Southern-style dishes to choose from. Moderate in price, but the atmosphere and service are worth the price. Each table has two servers, the first for your drinks, and the second for food. Pass arounds can be a meal by itself, but the most fun is getting the rolls throwed at you. Whether... More

This place has it all, great service, great food, they give you more than you can eat..its like having 2 meals at one time, one entree and then all the sides they bring out . Can be really busy so expect to wait a while. But its worth the wait. intersting way to give you bread rolls.. try it.

Its different then your normal set down restaurant, they throw the rolls your way, literally. The portion sizes are big, and the dinner rolls are amazing.

Saw this restaurant years ago on tv because of the roll throwing and finally stopped in on way back from New Orleans. Great food. Roll throwing is great for kids and the giant jug of soda made the drive home interesting. I haven't ordered meatloaf in a restaurant in about 3 yrs bc they always seem to mess it up...egg... More
