The food here is amazing, the best barbeque we've ever had. The service was very lackadaisical and we didn't get everything we ordered. The staff sat and chatted with their friends. It was very late, however. The atmosphere is fun if you like all things Elvis. Can't beat the food!

We drove in from Texas & had dinner...was so glad they had a thanksgiving meal! Cajun fried turkey, mash pot w/gravy, stuffing, carrot compote , roll, green bean casserole & pumpkin pie ALL for $12.95! Turkey had great flavor .,. I just wish I should have ordered white meat. The other sides were great as well. The roll was awesome! We ordered appetizers :corn fritters they were good if you like cream corn that is basically fried. The fried green tomatoes !!! Were awesome. The wait staff was awesome!! Overall great service & food!!

Hits and misses on food and service. The ribs were good Memphis style but the brisket seemed like yesterdays pot roast with supermarket sauce. However the corn fritters were one of the best things I've eaten in a while and the burgundy mushrooms aren't far behind. Things seemed rushed on an otherwise slow night. The server present the bill seconds after we finished without asking if we wanted desert which I did. While waiting for my pecan pie he brought the water forgotten at the start of the meal.

Marlowes is one of the best kept secrets in Memphis, The restaurant is on Elvis Presley just a little south of Graceland. This is an ELVIS PLACE complete with Elvis stories under glass on the tables, Elvis music, memorabilia and videos with a great staff headed up by the owners, Mike and Missy. Make sure you check out all the trophies from Memphis in May BQ as you walk in the door. The food features Memphis BQ and with reasonable pricing. I think entrees run from $12 to $15 They even have a pink Cadillac Limo that will pick you up. Can't miss the place, big pink piggy trailer out front. One of my favorites is the BQ beef Brisket sandwich and Banana Pudding.

Marlowes was recommended to us by the staff at Gracelands RV Park. Marlowes send a pink limousine to pick you up from your campsite at the RV park and take you to the restaurant for free. The food was great and the restaurant has a fun feel with friendly wait staff and barman who can make a killer cocktail. Prices were reasonable and there is something for just about everyone on the menu. Elvis memorabilia by the bucketload too.
