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.

    Met 3 friends there at 4pm for sips & bites before a TPAC performance. We had made reservations. There were very few tables occupied when we arrived, yet it took almost 15 minutes before we were ever acknowledged once seated. Service staff were everywhere, but none were apparently responsible for our table. Once somone located our server, he was very attentive the remainder of our visit. Apps were good. Bloody Mary very nice! I would return to try some of their entrees.

    Group of 6, we had reservations and were seated immediately. Current wait was 90 min. So I'm very happy to say I used open table. We were celebrating a 50th birthday of a friend. It was very good. Food was good but not spectacular. The band was Raven Cliff, they were outstanding. Could have stayed longerm but other places to go!!!

    The steaks we ordered were not good. They were very fatty and we ended up not eating them. We had planned to stay for the concert, but decided to leave and go somewhere else to eat. We were very disappointed because the majority of the reviews I read were good! The manager was nice, though, and comped one of the steaks. Our meal was still $30, though.

    Great place to go before a Preds' game at Bridgestone. The food is outstanding in a southern-fried way -- not a good place for "light" fare, but excellent traditional local cooking. The fried pickle appetizer and smoked brisket are especially recommended.

    The fried chicken was the best I have ever had. The flavor of the chicken itself was beyond comparison because of the marinade. The skin was crisp and very good. Just an outstanding dining experience.

    The food was good, we were seated quickly, and the overall service was quite good ... BUT ... my salad came AFTER my entree. When I stated to the person delivering the food and then later to our waiter that I would not be eating it — I had already started my entree — and asked for a box, the proper thing would have been to profusely apologize and insist on comping the bill for the food that I paid for but never had the opportunity to eat. I did put the salad in a box and take it home, but a salad doesn't stay very fresh in the car while you're whooping it up at the Ryman for a few hours. The food was good, our server was polite and engaging, but this fail left me a bit disappointed.

    It was our first night in town and I got to pick the restaurant because it was my birthday. The food was fine... for me ("Chicken Fried Chicken"). My wife has various food allergies which I noted on my Open Table reservation. The waitress didn't acknowledge these limitations (again, they were noted in advance). She gave her an ingredients list which was nice but the only thing my wife could eat was fries. The menu should be expanded. I also: 1) wrote down that it was my birthday, 2) my wife mentioned it when we checked in, and 3) my wife told the waitress. NOTHING. No "Happy Birthday", no free dessert, no candle in the dessert that I ordered. That wasn't nice.

    If you've never been here I'd recommend going! We saw Tyler Barham perform some cover songs and orginals. Pucketts has a great eye for what artists should play in there without creating a bar scene. The food was pretty good, however, they do like to spice things up a bit.

    A friend and I had a good meal at Puckett's before we went to TPAC. The atmosphere was lively and fun. The service was very good. My catfish was very tasty, perfectly battered and fried. The sweet potato fries and cornbread were also good. If you enjoy Southern cooking, Puckett's is a great choice. If you are looking for something low calorie and healthy, you might want to try a different restaurant

    We love eating at Puckett's. This time we had the half price appetizers before 6:00pm along with my glass of wine and my husband's beer. We were seated ahead of our reservation and never felt rushed. The fried pickles and the fried green tomatoes were delicious. They sat us near the pies but we were too full for dessert!

    Reservation worked liked a charm on a very crowded night. Service was excellent with quick response to issue with food. Food was satisfactory, but not exceptional. There were 4 in our group and 3 of the 4 had some issue with food. We were going to a concert at the Arena so we could not stay for the live entertainment. Might go back at lunch, but probably not for supper.

    Despite many open tables, they seated us right next to the bar so that people trying to order drinks were surrounding our table and bumping into us all night- very uncomfortable. I had a veggie burger that was a little dry, but ketchup made it more palatable. My mom ordered a hot chicken sandwich and actually disliked the house BBQ sauce so much she sent it back, which she never does. Then she ordered chicken salad, which she said was just ok. I saw advertisements everywhere for hard Apple cider, so I ordered one, but they were out. We won't be back, too many other gems in nashville to waste a meal here.

    Went here before a concert - great location & good food. Wife said her fried chicken was the best she's ever had - my steak was over cooked but they quickly brought me another. Only problem I noticed was the lighting - very dim - when everyone in the place is using flashlight mode on their phones to read menus it's too dim. We will definitely return!

    Made a reservation for our anniversary after hearing great reviews. Food was okay at best. The ribs were dry. Salads came and the meal came 30 seconds later. We were seated in a back corner and servers didn't come by to clear dishes. Not bad -- but definitely not what we were hoping for a special night out.
