    This place was awesome!! I could've gotten by with just the pass arounds but the meatloaf was to die for!! Hubby's chicken fried steak also incredible...Definitely the place for a break from seafood!

    This place is always busy. Be prepared to wait. We are here at 3:30 and it is still a long wait. But it is so good and the rolls are super yummy and the atmosphere is fun. Well worth the wait!

    This place is amazing! The food is great and portions are huge. Also they bring extra sides to your table in addition to your order. Plus the rolls they throw at you are very large and delicious.

    Always the 1st place we eat at coming to the beach, and the last when leaving! LOVE Lamberts. If you're going in peak season though, be prepared to wait. So worth it though!

    The rolls are free but there is a catch (a literal one). They have a lot food passed around but you sometimes have to be proactive about getting it.

    Come here around 9:40 when there are not so many people around. There will be a line since it opens at 10:30 but you will be one of the first.

    So much food. Pace your self on the rolls until you get your food. The potatoes and onions they pass around are a must.

    Best and biggest rolls. Got to be quick to catch one. Next time, I might not order a meal and just have rolls and pass arounds.

    Catch some rolls... eat a little (a lot) of everything. Drink a huge mug of iced tea. Meet the family and associates who make Lambert's Cafe the legendary restaurant that it is!

    Not as great as you'd think.they need more servers to walk around with the sides. Took forever to get the rolls and that was after my super nice waitress got them for us.
