It's my understanding they don't take reservations, and it's the busiest day of the year. Staff said they open 10-6. May wait hours for seating.

We were there at lunch during the week and did not have a problem but I would recommend calling ahead to avoid a long wait or not getting in on the weekend. You will enjoy!

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.
