Comfort Food
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.

    I was expecting a lot more for a Thanksgiving meal at a $39 price tag. Our server acted like we were a problem anytime we asked for something. Service was slow and the food was barely warm

    Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely horrible. Their regular menu has always been pretty good but Thanksgiving Day dinner was terrible. Do yourself a favor, stay clear of them on Thanksgiving Day. $39.99 for cold food, very slow service, worst stuffing ever, meatloaf from h*ll, desserts from Walmarts frozen food section. I could say more, but you get the point.

    Although we didn’t get a high-top that I reserved, we were seated at a much better table meant for 4 and it faced the stage. Waitress was very friendly and didn’t rush us. Best chicken wings ever. We went with bourbon glaze. Then had mini sliders with a side of Mac ‘n Cheese. Compares with other BBQ places we tried. We were also there for the entertainment. We really enjoyed the singer. She was friendly, welcomed requests and had a nice playlist. Overall very relaxing

    The BBQ was amazing. We shared the Farm Platter and added the sausage. So much good but all so yummy! The sausage had a slight spice/kick. Chicken was juicy. Oh my, the ribs. Best pulled pork I’ve ever had.

    We had reservations. Was sat on time. Waitress was good. Everywhere is short staffed so be patient. We were not impressed with the food. Brisket was bland and hard to chew. Ribs were hard as a rock. Max and cheese, fried green beans and collards were good.

    Puckett's has a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The food and drinks were reasonably priced and there were fun Southern options. There was a good female singer there that made it interesting and entertaining. Don't expect to enjoy conversation as the noise level doesn't allow that. The servers were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was full so the service wasn't speedy, but reasonable. It gave you time to enjoy the music. It was a nice Nashville experience.

    Business dinner with group of ten. Authentic Nashville experience. Our server was excellent and the entertainment was great. Food got two thumbs up! Stay away from the country fried steak. Our fault, Our server warned us. Red neck burrito was fantastic!

    This was the best food I’ve had in Nashville. We try to go somewhere local when we travel and had not found a restaurant there that really knocked out socks off until now. I had the shrimp and grits. We also had the pimento cheese bites. Soooo good. The pucketts fruit tea was really good too.

    Unfortunately everything was horrible. This was our 2nd visit, and we were completely shocked how about bad this was. We were there for over 3 hours. It took over an hour for our appetizers to come out. And our drinks took at least 30 minutes each time. By the time our food came out, everything we ordered was completely cold. Some items were completely forgotten. They did take the appetizers off our bill. But with a total bill of over $300 , that was only $33.00 So that really didn’t make up for much, Unfortunately we were celebrating my daughter’s bachelorette weekend, and this left everyone with a nasty take for this restaurant. I don’t think we’ll ever go back.

    Great live music!!! Service was poor to begin. It seemed that they were short staffed and the server seemed stressed. As the night got later and calmer, the service improved. The drinks were poor. The food was poor. We were a party of six and all of us were unimpressed with our food. Main issue was temperature - everything was less than warm.

    Puckett's was a great place for dinner. Great food and great service with live music. Nothing fancy just good, down home Southern food. Walking distance to Broadway which makes it easy to start your evening here for some comfort food before hitting the nightlife.

    We were seated promptly at a large booth for our party of 8. They were short-staffed which is pretty much expected these days. Our server was somewhat discombobulated and two of our orders were incorrect, but most of us thought the food was good. The music was awesome... the Jolly Quartet was playing that evening. The restaurant has great ambiance...we would eat there again.

    Overall a good experience. Originally our party was going to be placed directly in front of the live entertainment. We asked them to reseat us and the did so. Party was in town for a conference and it was difficult at times to hear conversation. Weren’t aware that there was planned live music, but it is Nashville!
