Great place with really good food. Be prepared: it's family style at large tables. Parties under 12 (so almost anyone going) will share a table with others. No phones, so get ready to talk and enjoy a meal together! And don't forget, pace yourself!

We visited for the Country Breakfast and it did not disappoint. My kids stuffed themselves with cinnamon rolls, biscuits, and fried chicken. Lots of food. You will NOT leave hungry. They will bring food until you tell them to stop.

The one place in Nashville that you can count on for a real southern meal is Monell's. I have eaten at both their locations and the food/quality are equally good. I have yet to have a bad meal at either location or any complaints regarding...More

I've not been in the evening but there was no wait for us. The tables are al designed with large groups in mind, so I would presume that they can accommodate you.
