I dined at Monell's with a group of 6 and it was delicious. It was enjoyable to sit with strangers and chat with them over food we all enjoyed. There were plenty of great options for everyone and the servers were quick to bring more out when we finished a dish. We left very full and very happy with our... More

Very nice setting. However, we were rushed and felt we needed to eat fast. It was like a whirlwind. Very salty meats for the country breakfast. Delicious cinnamon buns but that was about it. No veggies or greens. No fresh fruit. Would not go back

We had a wonderful breakfast at Monell's. The biscuit was truly homemade - fluffy and tasty. A great way to start the meal. After the bread bowl, which also included great cinnamon rolls, we were served 3 breakfast meats, fried chicken, eggs, pancakes, grits, potatoes,candied apples and corn pudding. (I think I remembered it all.) We shared a table with... More

It was $15 per person all you can eat food and drink. They just keep bringing it to the table as long as you are eating. It was really cool! We sat down at this big table with other people and the wait staff just started bringing out all this great food! Eggs, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, bacon, sausage, ham, fried... More

Cinnamon rolls were excellent... bacon was way over salty as was the sausage... the food was warm, not hot ... service was ok ... their only priority seemed to be how quickly they could get us in and out of the restaurant.

My family was so happy and glowing about our Sunday lunch at the Manor. Everything was delicious. It will be a repeat for our next reunion in 2018!

I probably don't need to review this place as there are so many. So I'll make it short. Bring your appetite!! Don't miss out! Make sure you have time for a nap afterwards! They don't take reservations and the wait can be long but it's so worth it!

I've never had a 2000 calorie breakfast but this was a first and it was delightful! I was there for the doors to open on a February Wednesday and as it turned out, I was the only one to eat breakfast that morning other than a bunch of takeout orders; thus I was served with bowls of food all to...

The shared dining table and unlimited pass to the left food is interesting but all incredible quality! Food was super fast as there is no ordering. Staff is very friendly. Can be noisy and it isn't very big, we waited 15min but worth the wait!

Awesome restaurant. Service was incredible. I felt like I was eating at my grandparents house, and my grandmother was a phenomenal cook. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. FEEL GOOD FOOD! When back in Nashville, I will eat here.

Thank grandski
