Delicious comfort food in excess!

My wife and I just had Saturday lunch at Monell's in the Germantown area of Nashville. The restaurant is in a restored Victorian home in a really cool part of the city. We both loved the atmosphere, inside and out. You sit at a large table with about 10 other people for the meal. An abundance of... read more

Just left this charming friendly restaurant after a wonderful meaL. The 35 minute wait was well worth it. Family style dining was fun. Broke bread with people from Boston and Brooklyn. Completely overwhelmed with food as soon as we were seated. Everything from biscuits with sausage gravy to con pudding was hit and fresh. Would highly recommend. All of us... More

The fried chicken was amazing!! Lunch was served family style so you got to try a little bit of everything, dessert included! I wish there was a place like this where I live because I would eat here once a week if I could. Service was great! When I return to Nashville this will be my first stop!!

Went for the Saturday family style breakfast and it was amazing! An unbelievable amount of home made breakfast foods, served family style with no cell phones allowed! The kids didn't think they would like that part, but they were so busy passing huge platters of food and eating that they forgot about texting! A miracle! A really great place to... More

I love the friendliness of Monell's as well as the great down-home cooking. My daughter and I went there every Sunday when we first moved to Nashville. We met lots of new people because you are seated at a large table with other guests until the table is full and the food is passed around as if you are at... More

Sunday Dinner like Mama used to make! The fried chicken was special as always. They must use that old black cast iron skillet like Mama use to use. The vegetables turnip greens, squash casserole,Cole slaw, flaky biscuits with homemade peach preserve, Mac & cheese, tomatoes, corn muffins and cucumbers and lots more good food made the short wait disappear as...
