LOVED Monell's from the atmosphere to the food to the beautifully maintained manor. The upstairs reserved for special occasions and weddings was stunning! Servers were more than accomodating and polite. If we lived there, we would be there all the time!

After reading the favorable reviews we just had to try! First, the restaurant is lovely. The decor is inviting and makes you feel like you're walking into someone's home. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the whole southern food experience. They just keep on bringing it out! There were a few dishes that were standouts (meatloaf) while... More

Walking in to the beautiful mansion and seeing the aura of the environment was very nice. We were seated quickly at a table that had already started eating. They were nice people.. One couple was a local one and they brought friends from Texas. The salads were delicious, the bread very nice.. the jelly on the table would never be... More

First timers at Monell's. I had heard about the restaurants from friends who lived in Nashville. When we drove up to the restaurant I immediately had a good impression. Old southern mansion and lots of character. We went at noon and were seated immediately. Some of the choices were on the table as we sat down. The waiter explained the... More

My slose friend I were on my way back to Atlanta when I-65 had a huge delay that made eating a Thanksgiving Meal at home unlikely. I called my daughter and told her to find us a good place in Nashville, she did after about 10 minutes of research, Victoria called back with Monell's in Nashville. I then called GM's... More

Due to family going everywhere on Thanksgiving, we celebrate ours a bit early, which this year was Sunday, Nov. 23. We had been to Monell's before but this was our first time at the manor. Party included 6 adults and 3 children, so we had a whole table, but some of us had to wait a while for the others... More

I received your call the day after your visit to Monell's and took care of the details with the credit card company right away. I called you back to explain that the bank had issued a pre-authorization on your card, something that banks do, not Monell's. At no point did we argue, but handled your compliant as quickly as possible.... More

This was such a fun and unique experience. I felt like it was thanksgiving dinner, but with as much Southern style food you could eat. They have a set meal that they serve, if there is something you don't want you just pass it down the table. When I went there was deep fried chicken, baked chicken, fried pork chops,... More
