Wow! I love a good, down home, southern meal and this absolutely does not disappoint! We went with family and were seated at a table with another family. Cold salads were already on the table along with tea, fruit tea (yum,) and water. We were served green beans (of which I ate three helpings), peas, mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese,... More

Monell's was a great experience with many options for delicious southern food. They have a different meal every night so look online before you go. You sit at a table with 10 other strangers and everyone shares the dishes family style. We came on a Thursday for dinner right as it opened and it never got too busy before we... More

You walk into an old Victorian Home, you put your group's name in & you wait. You are then taken to a large table & seated & given instructions about how to pass food & not use your phone at the table. Then you are brought out bowl after bowl of AMAZING southern cuisine. Fried Chicken, Ribs, Fried Potatoes, Biscuits,... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This place is amazing. The fried chicken is incredible. The peach preserves upon warm fluffy biscuits, to die for! The atmosphere here is lovely; a dining room setting with people you probably don't know and haven't even met. However, after sharing a meal, it's like you're all long lost friends. Every... More

Sunday 16 Nov 2014 Lunch I wanted to treat three very knowledgeable ladies to a surprise dinning experience, one being a business woman from Columbia South America. I envisioned us sitting in a unique atmosphere with strangers having a good conversation, and eating lots of above average food. I picked the Germantown location; we arrived at 3:45 and were soon...

We enjoyed Monell's on our recent trip to Nashville. The servers were friendly, the atmosphere was comfortable and nicely decorated , and the food was delicious. The macaroni salad served at the beginning of the meal was the best I have ever had. The fried chicken was crispy, juicy and tasty. Meatloaf, chicken and dumplings were served and both were... More

For a really delicious family dinner without the mess of a mountain of dishes to clean come to Monell's and leave the cooking to them instead. My family took me here for a Sunday dinner and it was even better than the word of mouth that I'd heard prior to dining here. Food is passed on platters here just like... More

I was hesitant to eat here with my 4 kids who are picky eaters but turns out I had nothing to be worried about...you don't "order", you eat what's served, the problem is having enough room on your plate! The fried chicken was wonderful, the corn pudding was my fave and man oh man the banana pudding was yummy! If... More
