Prices have just gone up for the brunch. No omelet station. The only eggs had ham in them and we don't eat ham. That was disappointing for a brunch. Very pretty interior, foods were artfully displayed and the desserts were excellent. Needs more breakfast and non-friend non-meat dishes.

The chef and staff at the Lambuth Inn Dining Hall went out of their way to try and meet special dietary needs of some of the 37 people in our family, and then gave the children a special dinner treat on Saturday night. They were so kind and the food was great!

The buffet was excellent. The service was perfect. The wait staff anticipated our needs, without hovering. The decorations were stunningly beautiful. Kudos to the entire staff that had a hand in creating such a festive atmosphere. Perfect place for groups or families. The price was excellent also.

We took my Mom to Lambuth for their amazing Brunch on Sunday. The property dates back to the 1920's and was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Brunch was a treat and a real value at $13.50 per person(Adults, children were$6.75), with a large assortment of dishes and desserts, very friendly staff and a view that is spectacular! Quite a place... More

The dining hall is huge, and you can eat here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner on limited operating hours. We had breakfast and dinner here 4 days as part of a tour. Good, hearty meals served buffet style. A large salad bar and an assortment of desserts were always available for dinner. The food was excellent for a buffet-certainly not... More

We did Sunday lunch with a crew of ten, the environment and meal were very rewarding. Ms Edna was a hoot and pleasure to watch in motion as the total experience was excellent. We shall return now that we know this jewel exist.

Had a terrible time at Lambuth Inn. The staff is rude, inconsiderate, and beyond not helpful. They were almost racist in policies at time.

Only had breakfast, based on our conference arrangements, but buffet had decent spread and it was good. The scrambled eggs were very fluffy and tasty. I had the grits, bacon and talked myself out of the biscuits with gravy, fresh fruit and other offerings because of an eating regiment I'm on. LOL Servers were friendly and accommodating.
