Not busy, got a lot of one on one attention, it should be busier for the quality of food. Don't go if you are in a hurry - be prepared to wait to order and eat. The food was incredible!! Absolutely something to try in downtown Memphis. The waitress was probably an owner or just someone who has been here a very long time and she was very sweet. Worth it 100%!

The food is fresh and delicious. There's just something about food made with love just for you--and that's what you get at Marmalade! The fried chicken, the sirloin, the porkchops and the catfish are great. Don't miss the macaroni & cheese, though! The husband and wife owners are wonderful people who are some of the sweetest restaurant owners you'll ever meet. In February 2012 they'll be celebrating their 30th anniversary!

If you are visiting Beale Street or Memphis and want to get past the tourist stuff and onto the trail of what Memphis is really all about, detour south from Beale a few blocks on South Main and head for Marmalade, a delicious slice of Memphis soul and southern hospitality brought to you be the delightful Smith family. Southern cooking is at it's best at Marmalade, authentic, delicious and served with class and hospitality.

The ambience is made complete with a charming and relaxed small bar along with walls decorated with Memphis music memorabilia. Most weekends there is the kind of straight from the soul live music that you won't find in the clubs on Beale. This is real Memphis soul, not something manufactured for tourists.

The family owned Marmalade is an undiscovered jewel that most tourists never know about because it is not on Beale, but a short drive delivers Memphis at its most authentic; soulful, tasty and welcoming.
