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

  • "The food has been delicious on both visits to Puckett's. However, both times I have felt very rushed. My salad and entree are always delivered within one minute of one another -- it just feels hurried and sloppy. This is my only complaint. The Backwoods Cherry Cola was a great value and tasted delicious, too. Would recommend coming when they are not so busy!"

  • "My wife and I love Pucketts. We drive down from Louisville one weekend a year for our anniversary and Pucketts is our Saturday night spot. This year I was disappointed with Rick Vito as a Saturday night act. He is a great musician but we were bored an hour into it and left to try The Listening Room. My opinion is Saturday night artist need more diversity, like three singer/songwriters. Again, it's not that Rick was bad he just did not connect the audience to his music . You guys are awesome and we will be back!"

  • "The food was great and our server Wes was the best we have experienced in some time. We were there to also here the music which was fantastic even if the large group of people were very rude and loud and talked and laughed much of the time it was like they were oblivious to the entertainment on stage! It was a fun night all in all and we would certainly go again."

  • "We traveled to Nashville from NYC and were looking for some of the better rated restaurants. We wanted to try something local and authentic. Some of the reviews suggested that we had found the right spot with this place - but as it turned out, it seemed this was a fried food haven. Not at all what we thought Nashville had going on....but I do partially blame it on our own expectations, which were too high for this city (not hard to do when you are traveling from NY)."

  • "You won't go hungry here! The food is great- many southern cuisine options. But do not go and expect to be able to talk to your group- it is really loud, even before the music starts. The catfish is fabulous. Good cocktails, too."

  • "It must have been an 'off night' or something. The fries were soggy and lukewarm. The brisket sandwich I ordered was haphazardly slapped together and overcooked to the point it was dry to the taste. My wife's burger was also overcooked. Service was slow, something we're not used to at Puckets."

  • "We were a group of 8 meeting in downtown before friends attended the KISS concert - we knew downtown would be busy so we're so glad that Puckett's takes reservations. Our server CHARLY did a great job despite the restaurant being very, very busy. The food was delicious and innovative. I loved the grilled cheese sandwich with fried green tomatoes."

  • "Pucketts was a recommended stop on our travels home to Chicago from Florida with a stop in Nashville. Had a reservation and arrived early. Sat us at a small table and we requested a move that was honored. Great bones for an appetizer! I had the brisket taco salad and hubby had the 1/2 chicken with sweet potatoes mash and squash. Mine was very fresh and tasty (though it could use a bit more than three pieces of brisket.) His chicken was "OK." Not great, not bad. We had a very nice waiter who suggested some stops for our evening tour and he was spot on. We left prior to the music for the evening so can't comment on that. Overall a nice place."

  • "The food was decent. There was entertainment that night, no cover. Dinner felt a little rushed like they were trying to get us in and out in a hurry but we planned on staying for the band so we found this annoying and made us uncomfortable. Overall, ended up being an ok experience and would still recommend to others."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

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"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
