The house and grounds are stunning, but what makes Monell's so interesting is the atmosphere.

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

Super accommodating. I came with about 30 guys from our rugby team. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. I liked the family style atmosphere. We werent all able to sit together and thats understandable with such a big group but it was fun talking to new people while we ate.

This is practically a ritual when we come back to Nashvegas every year. Before we go we visit Monell's. We have been coming since they were in the Old Franklin Jail building, just to show how long it has been. The food is consistently excellent with veggies prepared home style in ways you just can't get from restaurants these days.... More

This restaurant is a must when you are in Nashville. Customers are seated family style as they arrive. Once everyone is seated the entrees start arriving and are passed around the table. There's no menu. You just take what you like and pass it on. Unfortunately you will like everything!! The dishes range from chicken, cat fish, beef roast with... More

Went to lunch at Monell's at the Manor with a group of friends for the first time on this trip to Nashville; we were seated family style at a large table in the Manner with several other folks. It's my understanding that the meal changes each day but repeats weekly. I was fortunate enough to be there on a Friday... More

Carried my Brother who was visiting here from Alaska to the Manor for lunch. He is still talking about the food and the dining experience. We had the Best time with the other people at our table, so much that we stood outside and talked another 30 more minutes after lunch.! The food is better than good! It's exceptional! Southern...

So just to get this out of the way early, I am a fried chicken freak. I love good fried chicken, and the chicken here is good. Really good. Tennessee has a few places famous for their chicken, and Monell's deserves the rep. The restaurant is located in an old mansion and the tables and chairs as well as the... More

The food here is good and it's all you can eat, so don't fill up on the cole slaw and cucumber salad. You'll be seated with others so be prepared to meet nice people.

If you're looking for good, fresh, light, and crispy fried chicken Monell's is the place for you. Southern favorites are served family style by passing to the left. If you run out of something at your table, speak up and the wait staff will quickly get you more. The menu is different each day of week but the fried chicken... More
