Puckett's 5th & Church
AwesomeThe service was great, the food was awesome! Smoked pork was done just right! The cobble was scrumptious !6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHas become our 'go-to'Puckett's Downtown Nashville has become our 'go-to' restaurant for reliable service and food before attending other events downtown - hockey games, concerts, meetings, etc.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious FoodWe recently dined here during CMA Fest. It was so nice to use Open Table to make our reservations. It was even nicer to find out that there was a one hour wait for a table, for those who did not use/know about Open Table. We simply went to the desk and we were seated immediately.
The food was yummy. I definitely recommend the chicken fried chicken.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eatWhat a great restaurant for excellent southern food and hospitality. The food was exceptional, our server was delightful and I enjoyed some local beer in a mason jar. We will definitely dine at Puckett's again when visiting Nashville. Excellent experience!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMReviewThought the food was excellent! My mom had the shrimp and grits and it was fantastic. I'm a vegetarian so I am a picky eater but the veggie burger was pretty good. We got the cookie sundae for dessert and it was excellent! The service was friendly as well6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat locaitonHad dinner and lunch there during the CMA Fest. Great food both times. Upstairs is a nicer service for dinner. Would return next time in town.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner and a ShowWent to Pucketts for dinner and to hear the band they had playing. Food was very good and a good value. Service was prompt and friendly but not overbearing. Music was great and not too loud that you couldn't have a conversation. If I get back to Nashville Pucketts will definitely be on my list of places to go.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls Night OutA group of girls got together and ate at Puckett's. We had a great time. We ordered the fried green beans and fried green tomatoes to start with. Fantastic!!! We each ordered different entrees and from what I heard, all were delicious. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. I will recommend Puckett's to all my friends!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place and great Southern food!Puckett's was one of our favorite places to eat while we were in Nashville. We love places that are local to the area and not chains. It was very lively and relaxed and had some of the best Southern food we have ever eaten. DEFINITELY try the Fried Green Tomatoes, as they were perfectly breaded, seasoned and browned. Smoked half chicken was yummy for dinner but come early because they are limited and once they're gone, they're gone! Wonderful fried chicken! Great bluegrass music on the night we visited.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & fun bluegrassHad a fabulous server who helped me find the perfect beer and the perfect meal!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMShrimp & Grits!Weekends get very busy and the kitchen was a little backed up on one visit, coupled with a new waitress, that visit was an hour and 45 minutes but the food was good.
Breakfast (The Leipers Fork) on another trip was very good and hit the spot before my trek around town.
Recent trip before Ryman show - Shrimp and Grits was every bit of delicious, not too spicy and very flavorful. Will order that again.
BarBQue on another trip was very good also.
A Must try experience if you are looking for down home comfort food, reasonably priced. Music usually starts at 8:30 but you must have reservations for that.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat southern foodFried green bean appetizer was amazing. Fried chicken and pork BBQ was also good. Only complaint was the acoustics were not good for the band that started playing halfway through our meal. Would have liked to be able to understand what they were singing. But the food was great and so was the service. Definitely get a reservation!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great Nashville find!Puckett's was reccommended to me by a friend, and he sure didn't steer me wrong. I am glad we made our Open Table reservations prior to going, as we got there and the wait was over an hour! With our reservations, we were seated within a few minutes, getting a table right by the stage.
Our server was polite and informed, providing some great recommendations of popular and tasty items. We started with fried green tomatoes, served with a bacon ranch dipping sauce .We both had veggie burgers for the entree - VERY good. Serving sizes are large, definitely could be split if you wanted to save room for dessert - which we didn't :(
The live music was beautiful - one guy with his guitar and it was a perfect light country sound for dining.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat delicious food served quicklyI can always count on delicious food and drink served without a long wait.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly SurprisedWhen we first walked in I immediately thought tourist trap. Fortunately the food and service erased my fears quickly. This is not gourmet dining, but if you're looking for southern cooking, this fits the bill. It also appears they have live music but none was playing during our visit.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!This place was great! The waitstaff was friendly and super accommodating, and no rush to get you out the door. The band they had playing was so great, I even picked up a CD. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, you can actually buy groceries there! The volume is kind of high from the live band, but not so loud that you can't hear each other talk. But most importantly, the food was very tasty. My table got the fried chicken trifecta (aka all 3 fried chicken options on the menu: chicken & waffles, southern fried chicken, and chicken fried chicken), and they were all great. My chicken was juicy & moist with a perfect crispy exterior. The fried pickles were awesome too. This place was great, I will return on my next visit to Nashville.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMusic FindMusic is always top notch and a great place to take new comers to the area.
Food was delicious and we love the atmosphere!!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Authentic Southern FindI enjoyed everything we ordered. It was like eating at a small cracker barrel, more personal and better service.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Southern Fried Chicken!My family and I went to Puckett's before a show at TPAC. The location chosen was based on the food, the proximity to TPAC, and we wanted a restaurant unique to Nashville. Two of us had the Southern Fried Chicken, which was fabulous and one had the Prime Rib and really enjoyed that. The kiddos had chicken tenders and grilled cheese sandwiches, which pleased them. The wine list was small, but we enjoyed our selections. My sister said the sweet tea was great. Two of us had the warm apple pie with ice cream for dessert while I shared the homemade chocolate ice cream with my kiddo. We all enjoyed every bite! Our server was efficient and polite. The restaurant was noisy, but that is pretty typical, especially with all the hard surfaces.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday at Puckett'sGreat show, great southern dining and excellent service...what more could you ask for?5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!We dined at Puckett's based off review from TripAdvisor. And we were not disappointed! We ordered the sausage and cheese platter for an appetizer, which was delicious! Could have used better crackers, rather than saltines. Next we ordered the shrimp&grits, and for my husband...the redneck burrito. Both were outstanding. The service was excellent and the live music was a treat! We would definitely teturn during our next trip to Nashville.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMUnwind and RewindI went to Puckett's in Nashville to unwind from a long day at work and to rewind for a long evening. Charly, our server, was excellent. She handled five weary teachers very well. The highlight for me was the Nana's size cobbler. Cherry happened to be the flavorof the day. It hit the spot. The atmosphere here is always fun. I have been there for every meal and a show. It is consistently fun.
We left with a second wind.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial EventWe enjoyed the experience very much. It was great for our party of 8. We were. 15 minutes late but they still held the table for is even with a crowd waiting to get on.

The Howlin' Brothers performed and put on a great live show not to be forgotten.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEfficient ServiceThroughout the Saturday night rush, Puckett's staff remained cheerful and organized. They were good natured when things got boisterous.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad early dinner reservationsHad early dinner reservations before going to the Ryman, and informed waitress we were not in a hurry. She did not rush us and was very friendly. The drink and food menu selections were impressive and the food when it arrived was GREAT. Best pulled pork we've had. Excellent value. I am sure we'd be regulars if it wasn't so far from home. Lots of items we'd like to try.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and a fun placeGood food and a fun place to listen to great music!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertainmentDining with music and great music is what my husband and I love!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGive it a try!The place was packed the night we went (even at 6:15 p.m.) But with reservations they seated us right away. Service was excellent, even though the waitress was extremely busy with other tables. I would definitely recommend Puckett's Downtown, just don't expect to be heard very well - the place tends to be loud.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMbring your appetite and earplugsgreat food, and great nashville entertainment. like most nashville venues bring earplugs and don't plan on talking with other diners during the show unless its an acoustic set.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMchicken fried steak was awesome;chicken fried steak was awesome; ribs were awful...but the rest was good.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Southern Fried!We went here for our first dinner while visiting Nashville for a Girls' Weekend getaway. What a fun experience! The Southern-fried entrees were wonderful, as was our order of that Southern staple, Fried Green Tomatoes! The live music was entertaining, and the service was super. We would definitely go back here!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BBQ and a local gemMy friends wanted to try Pucketts BBQ because they are looking for someone to cater their reception dinner for their downtown Wedding. One had the pork, one had the chicken. Both agreed it was terrific, so the catering decision was made. I had the cajun chicken and waffles - I guess a Southern thing that has grown on me,
Service was friendly and quick - Jessie was our waitress. The restaurant was crowded, but that is normal. Another good experience at Pucketts.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Pucketts on 5thi brought a friend from Austin, TX to have dinner and listen to the songwriters perform. We loved the relaxed, family atmosphere, food, music, and customer service. I will definitely bring future guests here again or go alone. Love, love this place.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and fun atmosphere!Great food and fun atmosphere! Servers are very friendly and welcoming. My Mojo burger was the best sandwich I have had a Puckett's. My wife had the grilled chicken sandwich that she said was just average. We took our friends for there first visit and they enjoyed there meal as well.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner at Pucketts.We enjoyed our dinner at Pucketts. Loved sitting by the window and watching the happenings of Nashville. Food was good and service friendly.
Thanks!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice evening...The food was quite good, the service was outstanding and the overall vibe was nice (though a bit noisy). The menu offered a nice range of options -- both in selection and prices. It was our first visit to this Puckett's location, though we have visited the Boathouse and Leiper's Fork locations many times. We will definitely make a return visit. Very convenient for attending TPAC performances.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy is it in Nashville thatWhy is it in Nashville that every restaurant has to have live music? What if I want to just hang out with my friends and actually hear them talk without having to yell over some band I don't want to hear.
Just a little gripe.
The service here was great- a step above the good service at other Puckett's in town. I had the strawberry salad with chicken and it was great. The spinach dip also gets a thumb up. We had a party of 10, including out of town guests and no one left unhappy4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wonderful service.Great food and wonderful service.

Make a reservation and request a booth if you want to be out of the crowd of tables in the middle. Music didn't start til 8pm (supposed to start at 7pm) but great live music once it got started. Our first visit to Nashville and all 4 of us loved the choice! Also make sure you are hungry - big portions! Fantastic first taste of real southern food!!!
