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.
