We had lunch at Lambert’s today. We had 5 in our party. There wasn’t a wait. We were seated and we put in our drink order. Then, the food started arriving. We all caught a roll and had molasses or apple butter with it. Hot fried okra came around next and was placed on napkins. Our ordered food came out pretty quickly. I ordered fried chicken with mashed potatoes and coleslaw, but they accidentally gave me fries. No problem the waitress came right back with the slaw. My husband ordered the chicken livers and gizzards, one daughter ordered chicken, one daughter ordered meatloaf and my son ordered salmon patties. Servers kept coming around with sides to try. I tried the fried potatoes and they were delicious. My husband and son tried the macaroni with tomatoes. The guys each caught a 2nd roll. There is so much food! My plate came with 3 pieces of fried chicken and I couldn’t even finish my first piece. We got to go boxes and now have enough food for dinner. The atmosphere is fun, the food is generous and the staff is friendly. Stop by and see what the fuss is about. Great restaurant!

I can see the fun spirit of Lambert’s but there is nothing much for a health minded person to eat. The unending sides brought to the table are greasy, food is the grease laden food we midwestern people grew up on when everyone died by 65. The food is really only average but there is s ton of it. Fun experience for kids I guess.

I have eaten here for years. It hasn’t changed at all. A must do for vacationers to Orange Beach or Gulf Shores. The portion sizes are huge. The food is great. Atmosphere is fun. Be prepared for a wait but totally worth it.

Always a fun place to visit. Home of the throwed rolls. The rolls are excellent and the food portions are very generous. Servers come around and give you extras such as boiled cabbage, black eyed peas, fried potatoes, and macaroni and tomatoes. The only downside is I really wanted the potatoes and they didn't come until I was almost done with my meal. Service was excellent and very organized. More food than you can eat in one sitting. I've never had anything bad here and we make it a regular stop on their visits to Gulf Shores.

Wow! The food was delicious and it never stopped. The rolls were hot and heavenly. The fried chicken was awesome. And the pass arounds made the place unique. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was great. You get your moneys worth and if you leave hungry it’s your own fault. We will visit again!
