It is not the best I have ever had in a restaurant but it was excellent. The ribs were awesome as well as the baked beans, just wish it was a bigger helping of the beans. Very very good though and the service was excellent also.

Being from Ireland BBQ food is not really something that i am used to but having seen this on a TV show we thought we'd give it a try. We'd been in Memphis a few times and had never had the chance to visit. The service seemed a little slow compared to other establishments we had been to and although... More

Nice ride in pink limo from hotel. Wish driver would wear Marlowe's t-shirt so he is identified with the restaurant. My driver wore camo. The ambience was good with Elvis music and memorabilia. The driver told me to enjoy the show but not an impersonator in sight. Food: Fried green tomatoes to die for. Not greasy at all. Lightly breaded... More

I wasn't really hungry but had a huge salad that was delish here and my friends had super great barbecue; then I had the pecan pie. OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious! So next time I'll start with dessert and take the salad home.

Ate here a few times while in Memphis Excellent BBQ! Pecan Pie---Yummmmmm! Even tired a BBQ salad , I was surprised, it was DELICIOUS. Try to get a seat in the ELVIS room. Be sure to visit the gift shop. Prices better than at Graceland for ELVIS items!

My husband and I went to this restaurant about 10 months ago. The big pink pig is unique and a festive approach. We loved the food so much we took his sister and her husband to Marlowe's when they visited last May. They are from California. They liked it also. I also like the ambience--each table has a heavy type... More

I was in Memphis attending the Liberty Bowl 2014. Stopped at Graceland and while there asked who had the best BBQ in town. I was told Marlowes. I ordered the combination pulled pork and brisket. It was excellent! And our server Stan"the man" as he called himself was great. But most of all, all of the staff and the people... More

We had bbq sandwiches, and even tried some fried pickles. Pork sandwich was delicious and the fried pickles an experience. If you do order them you get a lot.....share with several friends!
