“Good home cooking...and throwed rolls!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Great atmosphere, and delicioius food. What more could you ask for!? Just make sure you either wear pants that are a bit too big or be ready to be a bit uncomfortable after your meal. The portions are HUGE, and delicious!

“Good and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

First timer to Lambert's! And boy was I surprised--fun atmosphere, GREAT food and very reasonably priced. Look out…the portions are HUGE and I do mean HUGE! I ordered a chef salad thinking to save a few unneeded calories, but when the server brought my salad, he said "I hope you aren't thinking this is a diet salad!" I've never seen a dinner plate-sized salad that had to be close to 6 inches tall.

About 10 bites in, I was already done (due to catching and eating a few too many of the scrumptious "thrower rolls". You won't be disappointed by anything you order at Lambert's. The sides are all delicious. Prices are extremely reasonable, so give it a try if you're in the area.

“Better Than Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

The portions are XXXXL and they come around with all of these extra sides you can also eat. The rolls are great but you will fill up on those before you ever get your food. Everything I we ate was excellent. This was my first time but we will go again in the future.

“Get there when they open!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Lambert's many times and have learned your best bet is to arrive for lunch at 11am.

Some of the servers are a bit sour but we tend to over look that because the food and atmosphere make up for it. This is just a fun place to go. But take note.... The portions are HUGE! Forget about ordering a salad, live a little and get something really awful for you! It is all very good! The rolls are fantastic and the pass arounds never end!

But again.... get there when they open!
