Outstanding Sunday Lunch! We arrived on Saturday and had a blast while in Nashville! We wanted a good hearty meal for the road and Monell's met our expectations and then some!

I first ate here in 1998 and am glad to see the family style format hasn't changed much, nor the quality. A Nashville original!

Family style and all homemade. Changes nightly, except the fried chicken. Catfish was excellent. Service was flawless and very welcoming.

A friend who lives in Nashville suggested we meet here for dinner. It was a wonderful experience. The grounds and restaurant are beautiful. Tables are big dining room tables where everyone sits together while the waitress places bowls and bowls of food on the table to be passed around family style. The food was abundant, delicious, home cooking from fried... More

Dinner was delightful. Bring a hearty appetite and pace yourself because this food is amazing. Servers were helpful and pleasant. We met some new friends over dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. I would recommend this dining experience to everyone visiting Nashville.

Family style, which isn't fully explained to you when you arrive, but a non issue. The food is the reason for going. What an amazingly delicious meal. Such nice service and a cute atmosphere. Would highly recommend for anyone traveling to Nashville.

Cucumber salad and coleslaw. It was hard not to eat then because we were hungry, but I wished I would have waited and been able to... More

Went to Monell's with a bachelor party during a recent trip to Nashville. One thing to recommend right off the bat: GET A RESERVATION. We had one but still had to wait awhile to sit(with a group of 11 granted). Also they close very early around 9pm I believe, so if you show up after 8 they may not be... More
