We were staying at the nearby KOA campground and took advantage of the closeness of Marlowe's . It was a nice surprise as it was really great food and service. With all the bbq places to choose from, this was a good choice.

We were between states on our way home, and stopped in Memphis for the night. We asked our concierge about a place to eat and she told us to try Marlowes. The pink Marlowes car picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off at the restaurant, and then took us back after we were done eating. We were... More

We stopped in here for lunch during our visit to Graceland. It's not far up the street so we chose to go here versus one of the "fast food" type places on the Graceland property. The barbecue was amazing, highly recommend the brisket! We also enjoyed the banana dessert, it was enough to share! Great service and EXCELLENT Happy Hour... More

Had dinner here while on a visit to Graceland. Drew was a great waiter! We decided to split a barbecued pork sandwich so we'd have room for dessert. All was delicious and we practically licked the plate.

Ordered the brisket with coleslaw and onion rings the wife ordered park BBQ with coleslaw and back beens. Both were very tender and tasty the lady in the gift shop told us that they cook all the meat the day before for the next day's meals you can really smell the smoke from the meat cooking while eating.

We had our evening meal here while staying at the Heartbreak Hotel. After calling for the free limo service for Marlowes we were picked up wishing 5min and taken down to the restaurant. Service was brilliant and food was amazing. Highly recommend.

Come here for the BBQ and kitchy Elvis Decor, not for a 5 star dining experience. For what this place is, it is wonderful. BBQ chips were great and everyone at the table was pleased with their dish! Very good all around.

Got slab of ribs for two. Sauce was awesome. However, the ribs had a funny gas grill taste. Slaw was not good. Sent it back. Mac and cheese was good. Baked beans were okay. Doesn't deserve a return trip. I've eated Bbq all over the country. This place was not even in my top 100.

Thank Jennifer L
