I did not know what to expect when the Uber driver pulled up to this home. But as one of the other diners at my table said, "its Thanksgiving in July". The food is so good, and there is plenty of it. Pace yourself. I had a meeting scheduled afterwards so I had couldn't eat as much as I would... More

It has been months since we ate at Monell's and I think we are still full! You need to like people as you are seated at a large table with whomever happens to be there when you happen to be there. They bring out bowl after bowl of home cooking. We had fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn on... More

This is a must stop if you are in Nashville and I'd recommend going for BREAKFAST. I was traveling with my best friend so there were only two of us but you are seated at a large table with other couples/guests so you get to know and talk to people that you would have otherwise never met. THE WHITE GRAVY... More

We stopped in after a recommendation from our Uber driver. All we knew was it was good food. I had no idea the unique, fun, and deliriousness we were about to embark on. You are seated with other individuals if your party doesn't take up the entire table. It was awesome to get to know other individuals and share the... More

Monell's at the Manor was chosen by our group based on the website and photos online. It was described as an antebellum mansion, filled with antiques and lively crowds. Now this was all true, but what we didn't realize is that this mansion is literally RIGHT NEXT TO the airport. And by right next to, I mean literal yards away... More

Wow! I'm writing this review a few months after being here because it was the best fried chicken I have ever had and I didn't know fried chicken could be so light and airy and taste so gosh dang good. It was a great experience trying all the different types of food. This is the first place we ate coming... More

My southern grandmother has been gone several years and my meal here brought her food memories back to me, it was so close to her cooking it was an emotional experience. This was the best overall meal of our Memphis/Nashville trip. We were seated promptly around the table with others served family style. All of the food is the best... More

My husband, two young adult daughters and I arrived for a late lunch at Monell's on Thursday afternoon! There were only two other tables occupied, and since they were already started with their lunch, we sat at our own table, so we missed out on the "family style" lunch with a group of people (we have done this before and...

We had a group of 9 and were seated at a large family-style table, the sweet tea pitchers were ready and the delicious food just kept coming out and being passed around. The wait staff was available to bring more of whatever we needed. I look forward to going back to this restaurant whenever I am back in the Nashville... More

Food was great. You sort of "eat what Mama's cookin'" as the menu varies and they serve what they have been making for dinner. The food was great. Some of it very different. The slaw was unique. The peach cobbler for dessert was wonderful. Be aware that they close between like 2 and 5 to prepare dinner, then at 5... More

Great southern food served family style in a historic setting. Monell's at the Manor is located in an old antebellum home and our service is family style. No reservations, first come, first served. You will be placed at large tables with other people and we bring out platters of southern food. Price includes drink, dessert, entree, vegetables, salads and bread. Menu changes daily. Call for daily selections. After eating stroll upstairs and enjoy the antique furnishings or sit on the veranda and watch the planes go by. Everyone in the party must be present before being seated. We do not have private tables. We will keep your group all together. If you take up a chair, you will be charged. No cellphones at the table and pass to the left.
