You CAN NOT leave Nashville without going to this place. Absolute best deal in town. Amazing southern comfort food served up family style. At 14.95 a person you get all you can eat. We had: cucumber salad, cole slaw, gravy & biscuits, corn pudding, white beans, green beans,mashed potatoes, pulled pork, meat loaf, fried chicken, cinnamon rolls and banana pudding.... More

I was in Nashville for a couple days on business and decided to dine at Monell's after reading all the great reviews on TA. WOW! The food was great. It is served family style with about 10 people per table. The staff and service was great. The food was of good quality and plenty of it. No one should go... More

We were looking for a place that served real, good southern food, someplace the locals would go. We heard about Monell's and gave it a try. If you like real good southern, comfort food, this is the place to go. There is plenty to go around, the seating in family (communal) style, and out of respect, they ask for no... More

This place looks like there is a crazy long wait when you walk in, but put your name on the list and they will seat you quickly. If you dont like to socialize, this place is not for you. You pay a flat rate and get massive amounts of different food that you pass around the table to your left.... More

Dining is family style, you sit around a table with other families. Food is served in big bowls and on platters, the food is passed around the table. It is all you can eat. Menu changes daily, however, crispy fried chicken is served everyday. There are vegetables, salads and casseroles. Desserts is served at the end of the meal. The... More

On a recent trip to Nashville we decided to find a restaurant that offered good old fashioned southern cooking. We came across Monell's and decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the group seating arrangements. All food is brought out in large bowls to be passed around the table. We had a most enjoyable time conversing... More

I was in town from Chicago for career fairs at Tennessee State and Fisk University. We were looking for a good place to eat and was told about Monell's. Boy, was I pleased. First, of all I really like the Germantown area. The restaurant has group seating, so you are placed at a long table with other people and the... More

I've been to Monell's several times with a very large business group (Americana Festival). It's tricky with a lot of people (25+) because there are no reservations, but the staff has always been very accommodating for us. I recently visited with just my husband and we were seated almost immediately (9:30ish on Saturday morning.) Basically, the larger your group, the... More
