I was a bit disappointed in my lastest experience with the Monell's on Murfreesboro Rd near airport. My workgroup decided to eat there to celebrate the retirement of one of our co-workers, well first let me mention unless you know the full menu before you go beware. You pay the same $13.95 as everyone even though you don't eat have of what they prepared and the few items I did eat weren't even good. The banana pudding was not even real......offbrand or something? We had a table of about 8 people but was brought only one serving of bread, then because we wanted extra bread and made the mistake of asking for more bread the waiter (bald black guy with glasses) says to us "yall still eating as if we weren't suppose to want more bread or any more food and we paying $13.95 a piece and still went home hungry. They need to work on their customer service skills....and I will not be visiting anytime soon.......

Any one that has ever eaten at Monell's knows that if you leave hungry its your own fault. We are set up family style. Which means that if you take up a chair, your charged. Regardless if you eat a little or a lot. We are not set up like a regular restaurant where you order what you want. We always have the day's menus and prices posted at the entrance door as well as the cash register. We never have problems giving more bread, nor refilling bowls. However, we are not just going to refill the baskets or bowls and then let the food sit on the table to get cold. The price for lunch is $12.74 plus tax, inclusive. With all the selections of food that we served that day, it is most surprising that all the items that you ate were not good at all. I'm sorry you didn't eat what everyone else had, or you had less than anyone else did. You know how we are set up, so I'm surprised that your surprised.

Monell's is serves family-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner at long dining room tables. Each seat at the table is filled, so you will likely be passing plates and rubbing elbows with new friends. Serving bowls of food start arriving soon after you're seated and keep coming until you just can't eat anymore (though you'll want to!). Fried chicken is served at every meal, and every dish is delicious! The atmosphere, food, and service couldn't be better!

Loved the atmosphete and strangers coming together to enjoy great homey food!!! The food was really great and out of the 10+ dishes, there wasn't a single dish I didn't genuinely like! Its like having a thanksgiving meal with dishes passed around the table!!! It's easy to over eat so bring your appetite and an open mind and experience some southern hospitality and awesome food!!
