Great Barbecue, good service and fun place! All the locals we talked to recommended this place for dinner - and we were glad they did. Complimentary ride in the pink limo to the Restaraunt and back. Food was great, and the Elvis flavor was appropriate for Memphis! A must stop if you go to Memphis!

Dinner was delicious. We had fries green tomatoes which were very good. I had pulled pork that came with a deep fried brown and serve roll that was excellent.

We were staying at the Heartbreak Hotel after having driven in from Nashville and found Marlowe's right down the street. The fantastic smokey meat smell hits you as you open the door. Great pulled pork and yummy sides! Then we ordered the peanut butter and banana sundae for dessert WOW! Great service and a cool "joint" atmosphere. Would definitely go... More

Though some primarily meat places do have fairly good vegetarian choices this is not one of them. Salad was not great, fried green tomatoes not the best either as they were rather overcooked and the dipping sauce was okay at best.

My hotel concierge suggested this restaurant, and I'm so glad they did. I was a little nervous to wander around the area, since I'd heard some parts near graceland can be dicey. This restaurant seemed to be in a safe area. It was hopping on a sunday night. I just got food to go. The bartender was very nice and... More

This was suggested by our hotel, we looked at their menu and had to try it. We had the special of the day catfish and also ribs. The choice of sides was difficult as they all sounded so good. The catfish and ribs were great! We will go back again.

We arrived at our hotel at night and had already found out about the amazing marlow's. We gave them a call and they were more than happy to come and pick us up from our hotel in one of their pink limos and takes us to the restaurant all free of charge plus tipping. Our driver was fantastic. So friendly... More

We will always make sure we notify the guest before parking the limo. I tested the web site and if you tried to send... More

I went to Marlowes while on a business trip to Memphis. The desk clerk recommended the restaurant. Great ribs and service. All Elvis décor. They gave me such a large rack that I ended up taking more than half back to the hotel for breakfast!
