“Pretty good restaurant and gift shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

A great place to go if you like BBQ: BBQ ribs, BBQ beef brisket, BBQ spaghetti, BBQ baked potato, BBQ sandwich, BBQ shrimp, BBQ salad, etc. They also have a variety of salads, burgers and sandwiches, and entrees such as ribeye steak, t-bone steak, catfish, lasagna, pork chops, country fried steak, etc. Desserts include Mississippi Mud Cake, Pecan Pie, Banana Pudding, etc.

Located one mile south of Graceland, Marlowe's is a pretty popular restaurant in the area. The food and service were good. The prices were average. The gift shop was fun. The atmosphere was good.

It's worth a stop if you're in the area.

“BBQ..Entertainment and a Killer Dessert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

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!

“Elvis Fans must eat here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

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 couple miles to get a delicious meal!
