I grew up in Nashville and have always heard about Monells breakfast. Their dinners are good, so I decided to take my family today. There are so many really good breakfast places in the area, but Monells isn't one of them. The eggs were not real eggs, the gravy had no taste and was just gummy flour and milk-not sawmill... More

This place serves an awesome country family style breakfast like no other. It is fabulous and fun family style dining. The food is an endless array of breakfast/brunch foods that will have you needing to be rolled out of there.

If you are hungry this is the place to go. Served family style your plate is full before all food items circle the table. Service could have been more attentive; however, they are busy. It is fun sitting with other families from other states.

The food and the company were wonderful. My two 20-something sons and I dined with a couple from L.A., 2 businessmen from Chicago and a local family. It was great conversation with a yummy brunch of fried chicken, scrambled eggs, smoked ham, fluffy biscuits, amazing creamed corn and more. One of the best meals on our trip!

Upscale traditional Southern food served family-style. You won't go wrong here if you like vegetables at all. The experience is strangely poignant.

Best Place to Take Out of Town Visitors for a Southern experience. Love Monell's. Good home cooking. Lovely historic German house and garden. It's family seating, so unless you're a large enough group to take up a whole table, get ready to meet some new people.

A must visit in Nashville! I've been twice....always very delicious and serious volume! Food is pure southern home cooking for a very reasonable price...$12-15.
