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!

The Mansion is worth the visit. It is nice to see a great historic building still being use as a working business. The staff is very friendly and the food never disappoints. Go hungry and leave satisfied, from the homemade cornbread muffins and peach preserves to the traditional southern banana pudding and sweet tea. If you have a large group,... More

My friend and I visit and ate at the Manor 2 weeks ago. It was a lovely experience. Delicous southern cooking in a beautiful manor surrounded by nice people. We had a family from Chattanooga on one side of us and Memphis, Nashville, and Florida on our other side. Everyone was friendly. Fried and Sauteed chicken, ribs, mac and cheese,... More

A waitress in a small bbq joint told us about Monell's at the Manor and we are not ones to take recommendations lightly so we decided to drive out and we were pleasantly surprised at how the manor looked all lit up for the evening. The mansion is beautiful. We were seated immediately (arrive early because they don't take reservations)... More

This is a very unique dinning experience. They serve family style and all you can eat southern food. Excellent fried chicken served daily with another meat side also accompanied by delicious side dishes,biscuits, corn bread and a dessert. All this at an amazingly low price per person. It's one of my favorite family dining places when in Nashville.

Brought family here for lunch on Christmas day. We'd never been but had read about here in TA. Fried chicken, turkey w/g dressing were both great. Loved the corn bread with their peach preserves. Neat concept, enjoyed meeting others. Pricing was fair even though it was family style. Totally recommend.

I can remember this place being New Orleans' Manor seafood buffet. The elegance is gone, everybody sits at tables with strangers, dessert is on your plate when you walk in, don't know how long it sat there. Beverages are in pitchers on table, serve yourself. There is a set menu for each night of week. Their fried chicken is very... More

Description
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.
