A word from Puckett's 5th & Church
Founded in the fifties, people have been congregating at Puckett"s for over half a century. We've updated a bit, added some recipes from our family and friends, and thrown in some great live music. But it's still Puckett's Grocery... nothing too fancy, but everything good. It's where the locals go for real food, real people and real fun.Continued

  • "It was a good sign when both nights I tried to go to Puckett's there was a line out the door. I finally set a reservation and now my southern food dreams have come true. A friendly staff, reasonable prices, sizeable portions, and delicious food were all part of a great meal. The live music was the icing on the cake!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food was excellent and so was the music. The environment is casual but not too bar-like. My only complaint is that it took too long to be seated. I had a reservation but waited over an hour to be seated. I was not alone. Another group I talked to with a reservation waited almost two hours to be seated."

  • "We discovered Puckets's on a trip to Nashville about a year ago during a football weekend. We loved it and now try to eat there at least once a trip. The food is great. Don't be upset with the service it's going to take a bit to get your food during peak times but it is well worth it!!!!"

  • "7pm reservation and was seated immediately but the table was directly across from men's room. Restaurant was crowded but for good reason, the food is really good, servings are large, and prices are quite reasonable. 8 would definitely eat here again when visiting Nashville. location is an easy walk from downtown hotels."

  • "We ate here before catching a concert at the Ryman. I had the Shrimp and Grits and they were delicious. Our server was very attentive and made good food and drink suggestions. My wife and I enjoyed the convenient location close to our hotel and concert. The restaurant was busy without being annoying. The only blemish is that we were originally sat next to the restrooms and the waiter kiosk. Our server got us moved quickly when we requested it."

  • "Great food, music, and atmosphere at dinner time! This restaurant is a Nashville must for those looking for good southern/country comfort food! The live music is phenomenal too! You get the best of both worlds... Excellent food and music! I will be telling everyone about Puckett's! Oh, and they serve their drinks in mason jars... How awesome is that!"

  • "We have been to the Boathouse in Franklin many times and were always pleased with it. This was my daughters birthday and she wanted to celebrate at Puckett's downtown - our 1st time there. It was not clean, floor, table, chairs were dirty, inside the restaurant was extremely HOT (like the A/C was broken), it was much cooler outside than in, we were sweating, it was very uncomfortable, the waitress was slow and not friendly, food too forever, the food was cold upon arrival, and the order was wrong. We got 2 burgers & BLT. How do you mess that up? But they did! This is Not a place I will recommend and will Not be back. We all were so VERY Disappointed."

  • "Great food and the server we had was fantastic! He remembered every little thing and always made sure people's drinks were full. It was a little crowded for the table we had even though we made reservations ahead of time but the food was delicious! Totally recommend one of the fried chicken dishes"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Visitors from CMA Fest and an upcoming conference were able to join tables and enjoy a delicious meal together at 5:45. Our server was super in making dinner recommendations (a couple had been there for lunch only); offered a bowl of grits to those who had never had any with pleasing results; and even split the cost of a shared appetizer between the two early arrivers. Advise you to get there early, and/or make a reservation -- the lines were long when we left. Definitely a popular place for good reason!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "My daughter and I had a early dinner reservation after a show at TPAC. We were out earlier than expected and were able to be seated almost immediately. I definitely recommend reservations for busier times. Our server, Rob, was smashing. He was attentive without hovering. The food was excellent. We both had chicken and waffles. Chicken was spicy and crispy; a perfect counterpoint to the sweet waffle."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We enjoyed our visit to Puckett's in Nashville, it was lively and bustling, even on a weekday. Food was standard American middle market fare, mostly fried stuff, but my steak was cooked as required and tender, typical largish portions. Whilst not fine dining, the band were good and the volume just about right, but still difficult to talk easily. Music was rocking blues, no country if that's what you want. Would go back if in Nashville. Our server was a nice guy and gave good friendly service."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We made reservations early for an 8:00 show, not knowing the time was changed to 9:00. Jennifer was a tremendous help in finding us a table where we could see instead of the corner where we started. The food was great and the service was also. The only negative in the whole evening was that the music was so loud during dinner that people had to talk too loud to hear over it."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had dinner before CMA Fest! Glad we made a reservation as it was packed when we arrived. Have a great happy hour with half of appetizers. Dinner was great: Shrimp & Grits / Chicken & Waaffles. "

  • "The food is wonderful and the music is always great as well! Definitely great for people who are looking to hear some great up and coming artists without the crazy bar scene. :) "

  • "Puckett's 5th and Church has become one of my new favorite downtown places to eat. I love taking out of town guests because the atmosphere is so wonderful and the food is great! We love the chicken fried steak, bbq pork and fried green tomatoes - such classic southern fare! They have added outdoor seating and the last two times we have one, we have sat outside on the sidewalk and love the hustle and bustle of downtown Nashville."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The ambiance and music are top both here. I had 2 slight disappointments: I ordered a side of green beans and based on he quality of the rest of the food, I expected them to be fresh, but they were clearly canned beans. The other was that one person input group ordered an entree that came with a side salad. The kitchen sent out both her side salad, and the entire table's entrees (including hers) at the same time. This was not ideal. Otherwise- I love this place and will definitely return."

  • "On my second visit to Pucketts, I brought a group of 8 girl friends. They enjoyed the atmosphere, the friendly yet efficient service, and the simple, but very good food. My shrimp and grits were fantastic and those who were having catfish for the first time loved it! I had made a reservation and we were seated promptly. We also enjoyed the live music which wasn't too loud to prohibit our conversation. This was the perfect choice for the first night of our Nashville visit. "

  • "This is a great place to bring people visiting Nashville who want Southern food that is authentic, has live music, and a friendly atmosphere. Our party had the fried pickles, hot chicken sandwich, piggy Mac, and the ribs. We are all picky foodies that were all full and happy when we left! I'm a local and I will be returning! I hear the Franklin location is great too. "
