Southern food is served family style in a historic setting (a 19th-century Victorian house).The table service is communal at Monell's. All items are passed around the table and the staff at Monell's replenishes an empty bowl. Each day's menu includes 2-3 meats (the fried chicken is legendary), 3-4 salads, 4-5 hot vegetables, drink (including of course iced tea) and dessert.
While driving around in 1995, owner Michael King took a wrong turn and happened upon a beautiful, Victorian 1880 home. No money, unemployed and 5 gold credit cards, and a lot of faith, Michael decided to make a restaurant out of this historic house. Monell's opened on Thanksgiving day in 1995 and the rest, as they say, is history.
