We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Monell's after the doorman at the Hermitage Hotel suggested it. It was about a 15 minute walk from the hotel and an Uber ride back since we enjoyed our meal so much! We sat at a table with our "breakfast family", who turned out to be a very interesting group!

Family style dining, you sit around a huge table (sometimes with other families) and pass the food around just like you're at home. Gobble till you wobble! Choice of different meats and homemade sides and desserts! Monell's has become our Nashville Thanksgiving tradition!

We had real comfort food and plenty of options to pick from. We had lasagna, fish, meatloaf, chicken and all sorts of vegetables. We were seated with... More

There are 3 of these in Nashville. The original is in the Germantown area (the best one ,in my opinion) One off Mufreesboro Rd in the old New Orleans Manor, beautiful place. The other one is a cafeteria style near 100 Oaks. Monell's has the best fried chicken in Nashville. You sit at a lazy susan style of setting. Meaning... More
