Could it get any better!

This was my 2nd visit to the Monell's in Germantown since it is now a must visit place on a trip to Nashville. Do not eat all day because there is so much food served. The even serve the banana pudding with the first course because they know you will not have room for dessert at the end of the... read more

Great experience at Monell's while on vacation in Nashville with the family. Food keeps coming out of the kitchen. Biscuits were great. Meatloaf was maybe the best I've had. Definitely must visit if you're in the area!

For an authentic southern style meal you cannot beat Monell's in Nashville, TN. It is every bit worth the wait (40' in our case) to feast on some of the most delicious southern comfort entrées imaginable at one sitting. Be prepared to turn off your cell phones and smart phones while imbibing in good old-fashioned conversation across a communal dining... More

We only had a short time in Nashville. After dinner at Monell's on our first day, we went back for breakfast the next day - our only two meals in Nashville were spent at Monell's! Our thinking was that there was no chance that we were going to find better food so we should make the most of it.

Delicious food! All you can eat served family style. We ate there for breakfast and they served so many tasty dishes...corn pudding, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, breakfast meats, fried chicken, etc...We enjoyed meeting and talking with other customers at our table too. The Germantown area is beautiful. After filling up, it's worth walking around and looking at the beautiful homes... More

What can I say, this was the most delicious food I have ever eaten outside of my grandmother's kitchen. This is a family style restaraunt and you will get a chance to make new friends. (We sat with a Grammy Award wining songwriter) The menu varies daily, we had biscuits and cornbread, fried chicken, Cajun catfish, ribs, roast beef, mashed... More

All you can eat family style dining as well as comfort-food/ home-cooked-meal! It was good down home southern food, the chicken was amazing! And I seriously need to find out how they make that pineapple casserole! This place is super fun! Maybe it was just because this was the moment we walked in, but we got seated and had food... More

We arrived just as the restaurant opened on a Saturday morning. Very nice courtyard area if you had to wait for a table. Staff very friendly. We were served so MUCH food! And it was delicious. Enjoyed sitting with "strangers." Our group was from Illinois and Florida - others at the table were from California and Indiana. Price was very... More
