I resolved to go to Graceland after two co-workers talked about going there during a flight layover (it was closed and they only got to look through the gate.) I scheduled an early morning flight into Memphis (to start an evening cross-country train trip.) The cab ride from the airport is very short and there were property lockers at the ticketing center for my luggage. I spent all day touring the mansion, the grounds, the museums, the airplanes, had lunch at the visitor center restaurant across the street, carefully chose the perfect souvenir (XXL T-shirt for a night shirt with a large glittery image of Graceland on the front -- of course) and finally, bought a postcard and mailed it from the Graceland post office to a good friend and Elvis fan. Graceland is one of those things you should see, whether you are an Elvis fan or not. It was worth every penny and every minute spent there.

I've been to Graceland 6 times since the early 90's. The house tour itself is great and I love how the inside hasn't been touch at all. It is such a good tour. The audio recordings really put you in the mood. The only major downfall to visiting Graceland is when you go into the "extra" tours is the RIDICULOUS way they shove the souvenir shops are shoved down your throat because you need to exit through them. I know that they sold all the rights to marketing or something like that a few years back, but it REALLY takes the spirit out of the trip. Maybe more so for me because I had visited before the merchandising explosion happened. The visit was more about the experience of Elvis than how much money they could get out of you. If you are a fan it is a great place to go, Just don't be shocked at their non stop attempt to increase the national debt.
My wife and I dined at the Cafe' last evening. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere relaxing, with cool jazz and blues in the background. The meal was excellent. The tuna was wonderful, the edges slightly crisp , the flesh tender and flakey. The sauces were interesting, flavorful and really made the meal. The ravioli with squash was unreal, the squash fresh and the pasta el dente' The sorbet' was a refreshing break in the courses. The Creme Brulee, was the best. Chef Duncan provided a wonderful meal. We will certainly return. We highly recommend Cafe' Societe'
We recently had a 40 person dinner at Cafe Society. Everything was perfect! Not a single complaint. The service could not have been smoother and the food was fantastic. I have eaten at Cafe Society on numerous occasions and it is always wonderful but even with this huge party, they really out did themselves. Claire
Wow! The God Squad was just what we were looking for to share our special day with and I can not thank you enough for accommodating our time change. Your presentation of the ceremony along with our "special love secrets" you included made it so personal for us as well as our family! You guys are awwwwesome!
I tried this place for the first time. Really clean and attractive inside and the guy behind the counter was super nice and helpful. Great iced coffee and the carrot smoothie is terrific. Im not into the veggie/vegan deal but it was a nice break. I recommend this place even to my meat eating friends.
Took my mom for her birthday and just had a great time looking at everything. The staff could be better and more friendly. But all in all we had a good time. Only major con ids the prices. But it does help keep everything going. Regardless, great visit
