We took family visiting from out of town to brunch on Saturday. Brunch is served until 1:00 but we were seated about 11:15. Soon we were served biscuits and gravy, I guess to fill us up. I asked about the cinnamon rolls because the last time we were there the rolls were delicious and this and the fried chicken were... More

Delicious, taste of home (and we are country folk) in abundance in a beautiful setting seated at a large family table. If in Nashville, it's a must!!!

We went on a Sat. seated immediately went about 3:00 p.m.. We did not have to sit with others because lunch service was just ending. Service and food were outstanding. Decor beautiful. Peach Preserves couldn't get enough - had to buy some. Fried chicken was delicious. So much to choose from. Nothing negative to note!

This is family style dining so you get to meet new people because you sit together. The food is awesome! My favorite is the fried chicken for which they are known for and the peach preserves! Don't miss the banana pudding. The staff is awesome and super friendly!

This is one of the best meals I have had in quite a while! My wife had been here once and thought it would be good for us to try again. Let me just say, I was not disappointed. To begin, the manor is really a manor! The dining rooms are full of tables that seat about 12 people. You... More

This meal was unexpected to say the least. I was in town for only a couple of hours and my dad wanted to take me to breakfast before my flight. Since this is close to the airport we chose to eat here, but we did not realize it is family style and they make you eat with people you don't... More

Monells was a charming southern mansion. Despite it being extremely crowded, we were seated very quickly, where the food started coming immediately. We were there when they were serving the breakfast menu and it was really good. Great fried chicken, and other foods. There were a few foods that we did not care for, but all in all it was... More

We went with a group of 22 people. We had hoped to have brunch but it ends at 11 am on Sunday. We waited while they changed over the menu. They sat us within 1/2 hr. When we were seated, they had fruit tea, sweet tea, unsweetened tea, and lemonade. The started with pecan pie on the table and we... More

Wow. What an amazing place! We visited the manor and sat with 12 people on a large picnic like table. We ate the best fried chicken I've ever had. So much great food! It was fun meeting other people. Go here!

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.
