OMG! The food there is amazing. When I first sat down a smaller built 20 something girl warned me to pace myself when the food starts coming. Thinking, "what does a 100lb twenty two year old know about eating" I started eating. I wish that I would have listen. There is a reason that this place has won so many... More

Share a table and meal with people you've never met and have your fill of several dishes. Ample food and the servers make you feel at home, they always asked us if we'd like more. Appetizers - Corn casserole was awesome and so was the cucumber salad (vinegar and salt), cornbread was moist and not too sweer, biscuits came with... More

When you're in the mood for comfort food, Monell's is a popular option. But you need to understand how it works. If your party is small, you'll end up sitting at a large table with other diners. As an introvert, that's not real appealing to me. But I'm always there with several other people, so we end up having our... More

My mother and I visited Monell's for lunch last Sunday and had a great meal! We were seated immediately, and there was one couple already at the table and biscuits, cornbread and cold side dishes on the table. Once the table filled up the rest of the meal came out - mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, broccoli casserole, green beans,... More

I recommend the Country Breakfast on Sat and Sun. Get there early. We got there right after opening at 8:30 and were the last to grab a table in the first seeting. Great home cooking, family style, table of 12. Only $14.99 a person and wasn't even hungry again until dinner. I will go here everytime i'm in Nashville. Would... More

we sat at a table of people with diverse backgrounds and had such a good time getting to know them. The fried chicken and biscuits with jam were to die for. Great service nice clean restaurant.

I visit Nashville often and have been wanting to go here because I had heard so much about it. Went for breakfast on a recent Saturday and lucked out because there wasn't a line. There were only three of us so we were immediately led to a table. It was everything I wanted and expected it to be. Coffee, sweet... More

Husband and I were in town for the Cowboys vs. Titans game. A friend recommended Monell's and I'm so glad we went. Opens at 8:30am on Sunday. We arrived by 9am and were immediately sat. We left around 10am and it was packed with a wait. You are seated at a table with strangers, which is super fun, and served... More

Great food! Great service! Fun atmosphere! If you enjoy Southern cooking and meeting new people you will truly enjoy Monell's. All the tables seat ten to twelve people so you will be seated with folks who are not in your party (fun way to meet new folk). Once everyone is seated the food starts coming. Not ordering. Everyone gets the... More

While on vacation in July of 14', I had the experience of having Saturday breakfast at Monell's. I have to say it was the best breakfast I've had in a very long time. The staff was wonderful and accommodated our every request. I would highly recommend Monell's and look forward to dining there again when I'm in the Nashville area.
