Family style at its best

Greatest breakfast ever! When we arrived and learned there was a wait, a man leaving told us the wait was worth it, and was it ever. No matter the size of your party, you will be seated at a table of 12. There is no menu. Platters of food just show up and get passed. For breakfast, peach preserves... read more

If your in Nashville this place should be on your top five places to dine. It is family style dining with mouth watering food. Very reasonably priced. Loved the Southern Fried Chicken.

I love Monell's. It's my go to place whenever someone visits me from out of town. I run a hotel by the airport, and my staff and I send guests There all the time. I never have one guest complain. A true example of Nashville life. Keep up the good work.

To answer the last reviewer's question, yes the menu is listed on-line. We chose having lunch on Friday because they had catfish, a favorite of my husband's. It was super. I recommend eating lunch instead of dinner because I would hate to go to bed after eating so much food. It was fun to sit at a table with a... More

Our group of 12 filled the table. The family style dining might have been a little different had a couple of strangers been seated with us. I didn't realize that the menu rotated on a weekly basis so I'll have to try a different night the next time I'm in Nashville. Most of the food was very good, but the... More

Monell's is a family style restaurant, which means you sit at large tables with 10 - 12+ guests all together, whether you know them or not. You do not order, but everyone gets served the same items, and the bowls are passed around the table, just like at home. There are usually several salads, vegetables and sides, along with two...

I don't know where to start. The food was GREAT. Wonderful fried chicken, fresh salads, delicious mashed potatoes!!! The BEST thing about this place are the people. Carlos, our waiter did a wondrous job. So helpful with such a beautiful attitude. As a side note, although you cannot take leftovers, all leftovers are given to food banks. Another beautiful reason... More

We had anticipated eating brunch on Sunday here but arrived too late. We were a little taken aback when we stat at a table with two others, but went with it as EVERYONE we asked said "Oh, go to Monell's"! Here are my notes so this is not five pages long: 1- you sit down and start your meal almost... More

I wanted to love this placed and came based on the reviews. The home is beautiful, the concept and service was great. The portions are generous and one will not leave hungry for sure. I knew to expect the community table service. What I did not expect was for the waitress to continually set the pass around bowls in front... More
