“Good food, great fun, excellent server named Cody.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

After visiting Lambert's in Sikeston last fall, I returned with two friends who are exchange students. They had not seen anything like it and loved everything - as did I. The food is good, typical down-home cooking, the atmosphere is fun, and the throwed rolls and unlimited sides along with the old-timey decor made it an outstanding afternoon. The real surprise was our server. His name is Cody and he is still in high school, but he could easily get a job in a first class restaurant in a large city. He approached us shortly after being seated, explained some dishes for the my students, brought our orders promptly and accurately and kept our drinks filled. He stopped by several times to check on us - not hovering, just attentive - and added a lot to our enjoyment. What's more, I was able to see that he did the same thing with at least 5 other tables in the room. Having spent most of my working life in the hospitality industry, I am very attuned to service.

“A Fun Visit, as Usual!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stopped in late July and once again had a great meal with some roll-throwing entertainment! We have been probably 1/2 dozen times over the past 10-15 years and never been disappointed. It is definitely worth return visits!

“Jacksons' Family Labor Day Weekend 2012”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Always a pleasure to eat at Lambert's Cafe. The "Throwed Rolls" are always a conversation piece. Great atmosphere even outside when you're waiting 45+ mins....lol! Best time to get there is around 11:30 a.m. otherwise, be prepared to wait!!!

“great”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I have known about Lamberts for years but this was the first time that I have had an opportunity to eat there.The food was good and plentiful and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere is really a lot of fun. We made fools of ourselves taking pictures. Fine dining... it isn't ; fun...it is.
