Lambert’s Cafe in Gulf Shores, Alabama

Lambert’s Cafe home of the Throwed Rolls. When I was little we would go out to Foley to eat at Lambert’s for special occasions. In my little mind it always seemed like it took hours to drive out to Lambert’s but in reality its only about 40 minutes from our house. Lambert’s always has a wait, when we use to go it was only 30 minutes but when we visited last weekend the wait was around an hour. While we waited we visited the new gift shop out side of the restaurant. While we were walking around we chatted with one of the employees who said the longest wait they have had was four hours. Lambert’s is famous for their rolls that they throw at you, as well as their “Pass Arounds”. Pass arounds are basically side dishes that waitstaff bring around in big kettles.  Throwed Rolls and Sorghum, Tomatoes and Macaroni, Fried Potatoes and Onions, Fried Okra, Apple Butter, and Boiled Cabbage are all pass arounds. I had chicken and dumplings, my dad had Round Steak which is breaded steak fried then served with mashed potatoes and pepper gravy, and my mom had grilled shrimp. Lambert’s food is good but you definitely go for the experience. With all of the entrees you also get two sides, you will not walk out of Lambert’s with an empty stomach! After we ate at Lambert’s went over to Tanger Outlet Mall to walk off all the food. We were pleasantly surprised when we visited the Outlet Mall, they have improved it from when we use to go.
