Everything from the service to the food was awesome! Full Elvis-mode decor with the exception of a few Steelers items...which was icing on the cake since I am a diehard Steelers fan!! We tried s variety of items on the menu and loved them all. Our server was as friendly as I've ever had. Absolutely recommend this restaurant!

Who wouldn't want to be picked up in a pink cadillac and driven to dinner. What a hoot... Great BBQ, nice atmosphere, good service. All the typical BBQ meals with a bit of a twist. Interesting drink menu also. Good for families as well as couples. But the ride in the old cadillac is part of the charm of going... More

We found this through the motel. When they give you a menu and sign it you get 10% off the bill. The restaurant does pick up and deliver in a pink cadillac w/o charge. Please don't forget to tip. Elvis memorabilia through out. Hamburgers, BBQ and desserts are great! Very enjoyable and reasonable.

This place opened our eyes up to just how good bbq can be. We loved the slightly tacky but memorable experience of being picked up in a huge pink limo!! The driver was great and even ran me back to the hotel when I discovered I'd forgotten my wallet......It was a busy spot with a mix of locals and visitors... More

We had a memorable time at Marlowes during a four night stay in Memphis. We were travelling on a bus during the day when we met one of their servers called Fred (he was wearing a t-shirt that said "Be fed by Fred at Marlowes), so he encouraged us to come for dinner. We were not disappointed! Of course, even... More

The BBQ shrimp and fried green tomatoes are superb! As was the friendly, prompt service and cleanliness. Definitely on our list for any return trip.

We arrived into town on a Friday night and sought a place nearby our hotel to eat and this place was suggested. As our main goal for the weekend was visiting Graceland, this was a perfect way to start our stay. Elvis ate her and the place is full of Elvis pictures, his music is playing, and the video monitors... More

Marlowes is a must stop while in Memphis. Especially if one is an Elvis fan and has spent a long day at Graceland and beyond. I had the Q plate, my son had The King (a big rib eye) and my grandson had a monster turkey sandwich. Everything was just great (see photos.) And the portions are HUGE! Service was... More
