So for starters this place is in an old home. Hold up, it's styled with an "old family house" vibe. The seating is family seating so you could possibly be seated with members from another party. There is enough food to pass around. Literally. When you are first seated your host comes in and give you the "house rules:" (place... More

We arrived on a Saturday night about 5:15 and had to wait almost an hour; that's how popular! And Fantastic! We were seated with a family of about 10 at our big table; and they were as nice and friendly as you would want. The food is served family style so everyone passed all the plates. Fish, chicken and pulled... More

We got to the restaurant ten minutes before they stopped serving breakfast but we were able to still get it. Three ladies came in and were seated with us (it's family style) and we had so much fun with them! There was plenty of food. My favorite was the biscuits with peach preserves. So yummy. We had fried chicken, eggs,... More

A great family gathering location! The all-you-can-eat Southern comfort food served family-style at communal tables in a Victorian house was perfect for our family after the Vanderbilt PhD graduation!

We had a wonderful meal and were stuffed to the gills. I loved their biscuits and this is from someone who doesn't like biscuits. We went during the week and were there about 15 minutes prior to opening so had no problem getting a table.

The startling thing about Monell's is the family dining layout of the restaurant and the homestyle meal. Not only is the food delicious, but if you like the convivial atmosphere that is created sitting around a table from others in your party or just other diners you meet there, Monell's is a treat.My friends who are Nashville natives all bring...

We arrived at 8 and were worried we would not be seated as they closed at 8:30 but they were fine to seat us and the food was fresh and hot. They have big tables and sit everyone together so you have the opportunity to chat with people not in your party. The roast beef and gravy and fried chicken... More

This restaurant is family style all you can eat. Everything we ate was delicious. It is true southern cooking. They kept the food coming, to bad my stomach was not bigger.

I loved the experience of Monell's. The food is tasty, hearty and endless. If you like the idea of a buffet selection but not all the getting up or wondering how long something has been sitting there - Monell's is for you. Servers bring you food nonstop and as you request. Be sure to try the peach preserves on your... More
