I came to Lambert's for lunch with a business colleague. The setting was comfortable. Our server was very friendly and service was fast. We were there a bit on the early side for lunch, so it wasn't very crowded. I got the two meat combo platter and both the chicken and the ribs were top notch. I wish I had more ribs! If there was one (minor) disappointment, it was that the baked beans did not live up to the other items I enjoyed. They were a bit more watery than I expected. That is a very minor hiccup, and maybe just my tastebuds. All in all, I would highly recommend Lambert's.

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.
