My daughter and I went to Marlowe's this past weekend, 2nd time there. And we will go everytime we visit Memphis. We always sit in the 'Elvis Room", right in front of the gift shop. Lots of pictures and history just in that room. I had the Elvis burger and it was almost more than I could eat. Large enough... More

The restaurant provided a Pink Lemo for our trip to/from the motel. What a way to travel when you're near Elvis' home!!!! Since it was a snowy night, the service was really helpful. The food was excellent. The restaurant was unique with it's wooden floors & walls. Of course, there was Elvis music. I'd highly recommend this restaurant if you're... More

We ate at Marlowes because we had eaten there before and the food was great. Also, our friend was performing at Marlowe's and that was the reason for our visit to Memphis. The food was outstanding as was the service and friendliness of all the wait staff and management.

The coolest thing about this place was the free limo ride from campsite. Once we got there, everything was pink and almost every square inch had some tacky Elvis souvenir. Our waiter was great, unfortunately they had a bad Elvis impersonator who actually sang the Whitney Huston Body Guard song and went on a political tirade about immigration and the... More

A national TV show featured this restaurant right after we moved to the Memphis metro area. So, we thought let's give it a try. Should have stayed home. The BBQ chicken was fried chicken dumped in a vat of BBQ sauce. We had awful service and the food was not good either. The only thing this place has going for... More

With all of the good reviews I was expecting to eat some really great BBQ after visiting Graceland. However reality soon set in. While the waiter who waited on us was very good the meal was not. Maybe this was a bad day but the ribs were extremely overcooked (burnt).

Spent the day at Graceland and then went to Marlowes less than 2 miles away for what we thought were probably the best ribs ever! Nice place, friendly staff and even some Elvis movies to watch. A must!

They pick up in a pink limo for free! We had fried green tomatoes, fried smoked gouda cheese and BBQ pulled pork. Absolutely delish! Not saturated in BBQ sauce but poured over so you can actually taste the meat. Oh and all this great food whilst listening to Elvis. Yeah pretty cool place with some great people working there. I'd... More
