Southern Plenty

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.

This place will not disappoint you; excellent authentic family food in a set menu, very generous portion, friendly service and very good value for money. Sharing large tables with other people make the experience even more convivial. I recommend this place without hesitation.

i was hesitant to visit this restaurant because I was unsure of whether I wanted to eat "family style." I am glad that we went anyway. From the moment we were seated until we left, we were fed incredibly delicious southern food. The rolls and muffins were excellent and the preserves were heavenly. The main courses of bbq beef, Mac... More

We hit the Sunday brunch and it was a blast. Our seven were seated with two other groups and the food just started showing up and it was all good. Heaping platters of breakfast meat, eggs, watermelon, cinnamon rolls, fried chicken and gravy with biscuits and pancakes. We had a great experience at a truly unique place with a seating... More

Try it you won't be disappointed. Great place for large family groups . It's like eating at your grandmothers house! Loved the catfish and peach preserves. Will put it on the list for my next trip to Nashville.

The meal, value, and atmosphere were fantanstic. My wife were passing through Nashville a couple of hours on our way to Clarksville. We had visited the Opry of course and were torn between the eating at the Loveless Cafe and Monell's. Well, I made the decision to go with Monells because it was closer to the Grand Ole Opry. I...

The fried chicken is unbelievable! Actually everything I've had here is unbelievably good! The food is so good that I don't mind sitting with strangers because I rarely look up from my plate unless I need something passed to me! I know that's terribly rude, but I don't want to slow down because I'm scared I'll fill up before I... More

Good food. Lots of food. Pace yourself. Family style. Waitresses were very nice and friendly. Was hot inside. Temp was in the 90's and I don't know if they had air but no fans for sure. Worth going to once.

My family and I traveled to Nashville in April 2015; I had read all the good reviews about Monells before our trip and I knew we had to try it. When we arrived it was packed, however the wait time was not very long. My family of eight was seated at a long Walton's style table with 4 other people.... More

We tried Monell's tonight. I guess to be fair we ate at the cafeteria style restaurant on Bransford which is not like the others in Nashville. The restaurant was way to warm, the AC must have been broken. The selection was similar to the other Monell's. I had the fried chicken and my wife had the chicken & dumplings, both... More
