The food was outstanding! It did take a really long time to get our bill, but to be fair there was a large table that all requested separate checks. Maybe someone besides the server could help with delivering the bill in those situations. Regardless, we had a wonderful time and I would always recommend.

Went there for Easter Dinner, so I knew that it was going to be a bit more expensive than their other Sundays. Food was very good but certainly not worth the price. There was nothing that wasn’t what you could have gotten cheaper somewhere else.

We were here for the all-you-can-eat Sunday fried chicken dinner served family style. The food was terrific and there were enough options to satisfy everyone. Our group consisted of children, teens, and adults and nobody went home hungry. Our servers were attentive with drink refills. We will be back.

Fabulous food! The waiter was a little snarky, probably because he thought that he wasn't going to get a good tip waiting on three women! Beautifully decorated! Loved the museum, too.

Food tasted good but was only lukewarm. Not sure if that was on the kitchen (there was a murder mystery dinner theatre that night) or on our waiter (who was telling ghost stories to area tables). I’d be willing to give another chance, though. Entrees are ~$25/apiece

This was a wonderful experience with Matt, Paul's nephew, who was our server and also took a fun picture with us to try to remind Paul Pointer of our meeting with him, his wife and others in Cocoa Beach a couple years ago. That's when Paul told us about Lemp so we came to see all about it after our trip to Branson. It was a fantastic experience and a big thank you to Matt!

The food was good but service was subpar. The busboys were more attentive than the waiter. It took quite awhile for us to have our order taken. Various other staff came into the room but no one who could take orders. It was really odd

We celebrated my mom’s birthday here and it was wonderful! Service, food, ambience, all was fabulous. Mom grew up near the Lemp and it was the first time she had ever been inside. She really enjoyed the museum and looking around this historic building. Plus, they brought her a delicious red velvet cake/cheesecake with a candle. She felt loved!

We weren't aware that Sunday didn't have standard menu. The family style Fried Chicken dinner was good, but not the higher class style dinner we expected. We had rescheduled from the previous week when we were going to dinner for Valentines day.

Biggest disappointment was they served too much for us to eat, but we couldn't take left overs home, meaning they would just get thrown away. I hate to waste food like that.

Went for our Valentine’s Day dinner on Friday night (day after). We were seated near their comedy which was extremely loud and not conducive to a romantic night out. Special of the night was Steak Manhattan, it was very mediocre. Service was sub par, could see the server just sitting by the bar, which was nice after not having my drink until I was halfway through my meal. Unlikely that we will be back, glad we got to see what the mansion looked like, though.

I thought the food & architecture was amazing. But the behavior of the waiter and workers was a bit offensive. My first time there so I had no idea where anything was. I waited till I finished majority of my meal before asking the waiter if he could tell me where the bathroom was. Instead of telling me, he escorted me to it. The bathroom was amazing! So after finishing my business, I waited until other guest left to take a few pics. My company was still seated at the table. Our food nor drink were empty. I return to table and my entire table had been cleared! My friend informed them were weren't finished. They cleared the table anyway. Upon asking for my ticket, I informed the waiter I had a groupon. He blurted loudly for everyone to hear my personal business. " She has a groupon for $30 on a Sunday! " Not understanding what the big deal was and why he felt the need to make my payment business public, I asked him what was the problem. He explained to me that the groupon I had was not accepted on Sundays. Before I could even offer to pay for our meal in full, he took my code and passed redeemed on my app. I was not only embarrassed by his actions, I was utterly offended. As beautiful as the place was and as good as the food is, I'll never return. Not even for a tour and I love relic places.

The Lemp continues to be a fun-filled atmosphere. I took our two teenage daughters to dinner there last Saturday night. James, our server, was outstanding and did his best to engage my less than social 14 year-old. He had excellent suggestions, knew a lot about the property and even the history of some of our food choices. When you visit, ask to be seated in his section! I selected the eggplant parm while my daughter chose the chicken parm. Both were perfectly done. I especially liked the bit of crisp on each piece of eggplant. My daughter commented on the sauce being the best she's ever had. Daughter #2 selected the Steak Diane and it disappeared within minutes. There were what I am guessing was one of the mystery dinner events as well as a second activity going on in two of the other dining rooms. Those activities were loud but entertaining from what we could hear and did not bother us. We will try to attend one of them in the future. Everyone was having such a good time. All in all, it was a very nice evening. The staff was very attentive and my daughter was very interested in the house and its history. We were even allowed to peek upstairs!

Great atmosphere! The history and of course the ghost lore were great topics of conversation among us. The food was very good. I had anticipated the restaurant location to be the Main Event and the food to be a side show . However, the food was quite good and the menu selections were very interesting.

Steaks were over cooked waiter didn’t care service was not good, Ordered the $17 Bananas Foster for two the lack luster manner in which it was prepared resulted in stringy banana pieces and melted ice cream. This guy needed to at least try, which he did not. I will not be going back.
