Food was good, Service not so much. They were very busy, but our waiter made us feel like he'd rather be doing something else. Since I was travelling with my work team we made note of how customers need to feel important even if things are a bit harried in the workplace. Disappointing when he told us he didn't have the time to answer our menu questions. The food we ordered was good, very tasty. Unfortunately, the bad service would make me hesitate to recommend this eatery.

We really do like this place. Food is good and more upscale BBQ. Love the charcuterie and the brisket. Service is good and cocktails are great! Can be a little noisy...

Call it more upscale than the park bench places, they have a tasty brisket and other meats. Here, you get it on a real plate with tasty sides. They have a good beer selection as well. The place also smells amazing, but you'll go home with the smell as well.

Service and food were great! Baby back app was delicious and a must. I ordered lean brisket after explaining that I don't care for fat at all. Server was awesome and new exactly what to recommend. Will definitely go back.

We evacuated Houston because of hurricane Harvey. We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to give Lambert's a try. Well the food was really good. We shared one meal beef ribs, mac & cheese and brussel sprouts they also serve these little jalapeño cornbread muffins that are amazing. The ribs were good but a little charred the mac & cheese was the best I've ever tasted in my life and the brussel sprouts were very delicious. But the price was really expensive to me $69.00 for one meal st dinner. I think that the same food at lunch time would have been about half the price. All in all though it was a good dining experience the service was quick and good.
