On a recommendation from a friend, I took a couple out of state friends to Marlowe's and we loved it! It's a quaint joint and they even had live singing. The BBQ was amazing (we had ribs and pulled pork), the sides were yummy and you MUST get the Krispy Kreme bananas foster!! It is the most incredible dessert!

This was our forth visit to Marlowes while visiting Memphis and Graceland. We always make it a point to stop for dinner. The food is great, I always get the Elvis burger, which is delicious as is the appetizer combo platter. The atmosphere is great for all Elvis fans with Elvis everywhere you look! If you're visiting Graceland drive a... More

Best known for it's barbeque, Marlow's has a great menu and wonderful atmosphere. Service is first rate even when they are busy. Owners are receptive to your comments. Great gift shop too!

Atmosphere is great, you can watch the meats being prepared and cut up through the glass. Had pulled pork and ribs that were very moist and flavorful

I had the pulled-pork diner which was way too much pork, a skimpy amount of beans, and so-so coleslaw. The pork was dried out, probably over-cooked. The waiters were actually running from kitchen to tables trying to do their best. They are obviously overworked and understaffed. Prices are steep for an average eatery. Rest of family enjoyed their meals.

My family and I were on our way back home to Missouri and decided to stop to try out on of Guy's restaurants. It was nothing short of amazing. The food was amazing and the prices were very reasonable for how much food you get. I had their fried pickles and BBQ sandwich. It was the best BBQ I've ever... More

Wow, picked up in a pink limo from Graceland rv park and taken to the restaurant, and at the end returned in pink limo. The food was not only great but reasonably priced as well.

Loved the pink caddie pick up at the hotel! Food was excellent, but my pulled pork dinner had way too much sauce on top! Should've sent it back because others did not have their dinner drowned. Next time will ask for sauce on side. Great brisket too.
