This place was AWESOME! It takes you back to the good old days. You're basically seated when they have enough people to fill up a table so unless you come w/a huge group then you'll be dining with strangers (which makes for nice convo). There are 2 rules...no cell phones and every dish must be passed to the left. I... More

I don't like breakfast. I never have and probably never will. The only reason I agreed on this restaurant was because family style sounded interesting and I wanted to give it a shot. That was 5 years ago. Now, if I'm within the general vicinity of Nashville during breakfast hours, I'm here. I'm never had a bite of food that... More

We ate here one morning for breakfast and it was certainly an experience! It's family style eating round big tables with a feast of food coming out in courses! We had cinnamon cakes, biscuits with gravy, grits with cheese/sweet corn, fried chicken, pancakes, ham, eggs, sausages, bacon, stewed peaches it was amazing! Totally love this place and you pay at...

This was way more food than I expected. We lucked out and went on a rainy Monday and was able to get seated pretty quickly since there were just two of us. The dessert was nothing impressive it had been sitting on the table before we were seated but the other food came out hot and fresh.

Tasty southern food, in abundance and diversity of traditional dishes, served to you in all you can eat manner in a beautiful old mansion, with highly friendly staff. You share the table with others experiencing same cuisine. Very affordable. And fun.

Monell's serves their country breakfast until 1:00 pm on Saturdays. We went around 10:30 and had to wait about 40 minutes to sit down but it was worth it. All the good breakfast food you would expect and then throw in some fried chicken which was excellent. You sit at a table with others so it if fun to see... More

I went with a group of three other friends, and we were seated at a table with three couples - two local and one from out of town. I loved chatting with them and sharing stories - the great conversation made the delicious food so much better. I can't say enough great things about the food and the service, and... More

Monelle's was a pleasant surprise. Upon our arrival we were seated at a large rable with several people we did not know. Nothing brings people together like breaking bread and we enjoyed it immensely. The food was delicious, plentiful, reasonably priced, and the company was excellent. Two of the young ladies at our table were locals who were a fountain... More
