If you are hungry, this is the place to go. We always manage at least on trip to Lambert's when we are in Orange beach. Great vegetables and ample servings. You will not go away hungry and you get to catch your own rolls. Thanks to our waitress Nikki.

A long standing family restaurant in what used to be the sleepy little town of Foley, which has now grown up!! Restruant maintains it's down home flavor, although is now the size of a small aircraft hanger!! Lots of locals. Family style sides "throwed rolls" (you'll have to see that to understand, they throw the rolls to your table)

My family and I visited Lambert's during Thanksgiving weekend and once again the food was excellent and the staff aimed to pleased. Such a family fun atmosphere and catching the rolls is just icing on the cake. We will be back to create more memories. Until the next time,,,,,

We arrived around 11:30 AM on a Friday. The place was filling up fast. We got a table right away, and the rolls started flying. It was fun to catch them and get to play with our food, but the service was slow, the portions meager, and the hamburger was godawful. I had the chicken dinner special, which was good,... More

This is a must for eating out when in Orange Beach, Foley or anywhere in Southern Alabama. I gave it a 5 only because 10 was not available. Everything is good and plentiful. OK, I got the rack of ribs again and was not disappointed. Next time I will try the rack of ribs again. Best thrown rolls in the... More

Have visited several times. Our family will not visit the area without going to lamberts. Portions are huge and they bring several pass arounds to the table. Be sure to have room for a to go box. You will need it. Everything on the menu is great.

Lamberts is always a good time for the whole family. People who have never been here always get excited when rolls start flying. The food is down home cooking and I can't remember ever having a bad meal here. Their fried okra is one of my favorite pass arounds!

Go hungry and be prepared to eat a lot. We skipped lunch the day we went and were all very hungry and we still could not eat all the food we ordered. Of course 3 or 4 throwed rolls with apple butter and Sorgum molasses, extra servings of fried Okra and other pass-arounds (like cabbage, fried potatoes & onions, macaroni... More

Fun atmosphere, great pass arounds but the food could be better. It's an experience but I would not choose to eat there again.
