Could not have asked for better food or service!!!! Amazing can not wait to go back! The food just keeps coming and coming. You may feel sick when you leave but it's so worth it in the end

My fifth visit to this establishment and I continue to be amazed still. Went for Friday night dinner and they had fried chicken, fried catfish, BBQ ribs and of course all the sides like mashed potatoes, beans, greens, biscuits, cornbread, cole slaw just to name a few. They had a very homely Christmas environment with the decor, music, and atmosphere.... More

You share a table with strangers at this restaurant. Went for breakfast and they served a lot of food--all excellent. Eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, grits, sausage, bacon, and even fried chicken to name some. Efficiently run so not a long wait.

We were a party of 26 who arrived before the doors opened, behind a tour bus. We had to wait for the second seating, but what a find this place was! Family style eats, served hot and fresh - all you can eat. Our menu was fried okra, fried chicken, fried catfish, BBQ ribs, white beans (my favorite), corn bread,... More

You do have a variety of meat, salads, and sides to choose from. I would compare their meals to Amish style meals; however, the only difference is that you do share tables with strangers. On the date we visited this restaurant, we had fried chicken, pulled pork and beef in gravy. We also had mash potatos, green peas, cole slaw,... More

You have to experience Monells. We were there at Sunday lunch. Fried chicken, ribs and pan fried catfish were the meats. The vegetables were delicious. Everything is family style. A little pricey but worth it. We were here Sunday after Thanksgiving and went right in around 1:00. Service was great!

This is exactly the kind of place I like to eat at when I travel. The seating allows you to meet new people and hear their stories. And the food is sooooo good. We ate until we couldn't because it was all so delicious. We have yet to return to eat somewhere we've been before in Nashville but I guarantee... More

It was a family style setting with a mixed group of diners at a family table! Our group was very nice and then came the meal!! OMG!! All of the traditional dishes from turkey, roast beef, greenbean... More

My family and I went to Monell's for dinner after my friend recommended. I am so glad we did! The food kept coming, and it was so tasty! Don't worry about the communal dining - we met some wonderful, friendly folks that we probably would not have met otherwise. And don't forget to show the kids the fishes in the... More

Great comfort food! Make sure you try the preserves with the hot biscuits. A true southern experience that makes you feel like it's Thanksgiving every day. We enjoyed pulled pork, chicken, fish, string beans, mashed potatoes, etc. The staff was very friendly. It's a different experience but worth it. Go hungry.
