“'With Fred you get fed!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Free shuttle rude in a pink Cadillac to the restaurant from you hotel in the area, the atmosphere, service & value for money are superb and the food is excellent - it's a rib & bbq joint to be fair, the decor is a little shabby and the carpets need a revamp but the tables are clean the service is great & quick and if you love Elvis he is on very table, wall, seat, at the bar, the lobby .... It is a MUST visit place close to Graceland, great for families, the ribs are the best & the fried green tomatoes are awesome !! The music, stories of Elvis, the pink pig airstream outside, being served by Fred - all an excellent experience I can tell you - brilliant and can't wait to go back again one day! We loved it so much we ate there after our Graceland wedding .... Really a perfect end to perfect day - highly recommend eating here

“Nothing special”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

You can catch a ride in an Elvis pink Cadillac if you are staying in the area. The restaurant has been there for years and is nothing fancy. The BBQ is good and messy. Service was so-so. Glad we tried it but not in a hurry to go back.

“fun restaurant”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

First, we arrived at Marlowe's from the Heartbreak Hotel in the Marlowe's pink cadillac. So that ride set the tone for a fun & delicious meal.

the service was outstanding at Marlowe's. The menu was varied as well.

“good food and drinks”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

My husband had one of the best martinis ever. The chicken fingers were well seasoned, crispy and moist inside. The fried green tomatoes were excellent. Service was great too. Will go back the next time we are in the area.
