Was visiting family in Nashville and this was the gem they took us to. I have to admit, I was a little leery of the "family style" seating/eating....do not even give it another thought. We sat down along with 2 other groups at a 10 person table that immediately makes you think of grandma's house: from the pitchers of lemonade/iced... More

My wife and I went here for breakfast one day, and it was unbelievably good. By far the best meal we had on our trip to Nashville. Super friendly service and more food than we could eat! We are now planning to arrange our schedule to fit in Monells whenever we travel through Nashville!

First time visiting Nashville and what a great treat! You definitely get your money's worth and the food is amazing, reminded me of Sunday spreads at Grandmother's house! And the staff is incredible and very helpful. When you visit Nashville you must try Money's!

Went on an off hour time, 3 pm. My Mom and I just arrived in town for girls weekend. We were treated like queens, even though we ended up having a table to ourselves. Best fried chicken I have ever had in USA!

I have enjoyed Monell's since the month it opened years ago! There is no better place in Nashville to get a great meal than Monell's. Four generations of my family have eaten there and all agree - best fried chicken and corn pudding you'll ever find.

First time near Nashville, TN and happened to visit this restaurant for lunch by google search. What a surprise! We had no clue about this place except they are serving southern food. Amazing Christmas Deco and outstanding dishes. While short waiting, we were curious why there were so many large table guests at the lunch time, but later realized that... More

When we were in Nashville, my niece recommended brunch at Monell's. Wow! Much better than going to an ordinary ho-hum restaurant! The restaurant is in a beautiful small victorian house located in Germantown at 1235 6th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37208. The hours are usually 7am - 8:30pm. It is a pay one price (flat rate). When you go, they... More

We met at Monell's for breakfast Sunday morning. It was in a beautiful restored mansion dating from the 20's. The food was delicious and lots of it. Cinnamon rolls,eggs,pancakes, biscuits with homemade peach jam, bacon, sausage,corn pudding, fried chicken, fried apples, potato's....Service was excellent as was the food. I'll definitely visit again when in Nashville.

Thank Linda M

When in Nashville do as the locals do... Pass the Peas..Please! Great Southern Food served Family Style in Historic Settings. Located in historic buildings, Monell's as been a Nashville staple since 1995. Come on in, grab a seat and pass the food to the left. Monell's famous Skillet Fried Chicken served at every meal, including our weekend country breakfast. A vist to Nashville is not complete without dining at Monell's. Enter as strangers...Leave as Friends. Monell's - 4 locations to serve you.
