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.

We had a great meal at Puckett's! My daughter ordered the fried chicken and I had the pulled pork sliders. Both were excellent! My daughter can't stop talking about how delicious the chicken and mashed potatoes were! We also thoroughly enjoyed the opening band and Parker McKay!

My waiter was terrific. Even suggested great watering hole for after I took in a concert at the Ryman.

I have given myself eight hours to experience Nashville and Puckett’s was the first stop. It was the perfect kick off to the evening.

Great evening out with friends. I had tried to get into Pucketts when I was in Nashville in April but could never get in. Knowing I was coming back to the city in September, I made reservations a couple of weeks before we came through Open Table. The energy is high in this restaurant/bar. The music was good and the service was outstanding. We were all pleased with our food. I had the cherry smoked ribs which though a bit dry were very tasty. The piggy mac was the hit at our table. Then desert...... well, lets just say we left happy after the pecan cobbler!! I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Pucketts is a landmark in Nashville, and a must visit spot. It's fame is outdistanced only by what it actually offers. Get a reservation. It is not always packed, but why take a chance? The wait service was knowledgable, friendly, and amenable ... and I use the term "wait service" as a plural phrase to describe the fact that about four different people attended to our table. The place was BUSY, and yet people still had time to chat, establish some rapport with us, and make this a memorable experience. Oh yeah ... the ribs and the chicken were awful good!

We tried to get in the previous night but the wait was 2 hours so I booked for the following night. Lovely food and great service. Definitely recommend for somewhere with atmosphere but not as chaotic as broadway.

Puckett's was great. We went on Sunday before Labor Day. The staff was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and was great with recommendations. We saw the Sunday Showcase with Marcus Whybrew and that was awesome. A lot of great music. The food was fantastic. I recommend the chicken fried chicken and the deep fried brownie.

Overall, service and ambiance is great. Food was good but not consistently. Shrimp and grits was delicious. Drink were good. However, my mom ordered the brisket and it was very dry and tough. My dad ordered the rib eye and ask for medium well but it was well done and very dry.

We went for a pre-show meal on a week night. Food was extremely tasty and service was good. Reservations were strongly advised and that was the only annoyance. Latest reservation available was 4:00 and we really wanted no earlier than 5 or 5:30 for a party of 2. It was too hot to make walking around downtown enjoyable and we could easily have been seated at the later times. We will go again, probably but won’t make as much effort. The cost was fair and the portions were just right, though

The food was amazing. We had the mac and cheese and the southern fried chicken. Everything was delicious. All tables have a great view of the live music. It’s noisy so if you are looking a quiet place, go elsewhere. Also, it took over an hour to get our food, so don’t go if you are on a tight schedule. I would definitely go back.

Went to Puckett's recently for a business meeting, and it turned out to be fantastic. They had our reservation ready as soon as we walked into the door. The service was great. The waitresses were prompt with food and drink orders and the meals came out quickly. It is always a little nerve-wracking selecting a place for multiple people. However, the entire group was pleased with the restaurant and said that they would return.

I truly enjoy Puckets on 5th and Church. The atmosphere is quaint. Staff always friendly. Food is always to perfection. I haven’t had dessert there because I’m always stuffed because the servings aren’t skimpy! Next time, I’m going just to get dessert because they all sound scrumptious...
