  • ChefMozAfter hearing a lot of talk about Lambert's, I had to try it myself. The wait was insane, which is usually a good sign, but once inside the service was a bit lacking. Even accounting for the crowd, they just didn't have the staff they needed. We ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and Fried Catfish. The food was a bit pricey for the main dishes, and I'd say the quality was pretty low. But the reason for going to Lambert's is the oft acclaimed "Throwed Rolls." They do indeed throw rolls at you from across the room, and a barrage of servers bring fried okra, molasses for the rolls, potatoes and more. All of the sides were good aside from the macaroni and tomatoes, which was unpleasantly sweet. It was fun. But our tab was $28.00 for two people drinking water. For the quality of food I'd say it was too much. Very similar to what you might get on a buffet or at a cafeteria. So what is my final word on Lambert's, all said? A lot of fun, enjoyable atmosphere, but the food was mediocre. On the upside, there was an endless supply of it. Go for the throwed rolls and sides, and expect to get tons and tons of food. But it isn't anything spectacular.

  • ChefMozWe've eaten here several times and it's always a fun time. The rolls are hot and hand thrown to those who want them and sometimes to those who don't. The free sides are a great touch and the apple butter is worth licking right off the napkin. Portions are generous and well cooked. And we can't help but leave smiling. Wish they'd bring one to my hometown!

  • ChefMozThe last time somebody threw food at me I punished them! Nothing here to invite a return visit. Over-priced and over-hyped.

  • Laken CLove Lambert's! Waited an hour, but would recommend getting the "nowwait" app! You can add yourself to the wait and check your place in line! Otherwise, the food is amazing & there is SO much!!!

  • Ashley B.Cute place. Good food just VERY HEAVY and extremely large portions. Not for me but I can see why people love it! Southern food served in a southern way! GO HUNGRY!

  • Teri W.The service at Lamberts is great but the food lacks luster. It's not worth the long wait times, which can be up to 2 hours. Go to Cracker Barrel instead. It's basically the same thing.
