Visited Nashville for my friend's surprise birthday. I debated on skipping breakfast Sunday morning due to a long day Saturday, of course I'm glad I didn't. Monell's was unlike any other place I've been. The food was wonderful and plentiful and due to the family style service I felt like I was able to bond with the people at my... More

This was my second time at Monell's. The first was with a wedding reception. This time my wife and I went and had their breakfast. We got there a little bit after they opened, and were immediately seated. We were given the rules to pace ourselves and to turn off our cell phones and to leave the table if we... More

The staff was friendly... The food was great! We where there when they opened for dinner so no wait... But the place filled up quickly. Monell's was referred to us by family who said it was a "must do" in Nashville... She was right!!!

Show up hungry, because you're going to want to eat everything you see. Monell's is served family-style; all you can eat of everything they make that day (or night). We had fried chicken, meatloaf, mashed potatoes(sweet and regular), green beans....can't list everything because I can't remember it all. Service was friendly. Prices more than reasonable.

Delicious family-style restaurant. Good food, neat atmosphere, affordable dinner. Delicious okra, greens, corn casserole, chicken, and pot roast. Great food for only $14 per person!

This restaurant takes no reservations. So coming with a group of any size is going to be a problem due to space. However if your willing to wait a few minutes you and your friends will be happy. The food, all Southern Cooking, is top notch. The corn pudding, corn bread, fried chicken, sweet tea etc are pure southern. Meals... More

The service was god, but the table was not cleaned well in between groups, the and... More

Very nice older home in Germantown. Everyone gets seated and then the food begins. Had a couple of different salad options. Yummy rolls. Lots of veggie choices. We had pork chops and baked and fried chicken. Didn't get to test pork chop but others loved it. Fried chicken was delicious. Very reasonably priced. Includes tea or lemonade. Would definitely return... More

Enter as strangers, leave as friends. This is a great description of this family style restaurant. There is no waiting because they fill up twelve person tables and then the food just starts coming. And coming. And coming. They bring three or four meats and about half a dozen sides. Not to mention dessert. When we were there they brought... More
