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.

Absolutely delicious food. Loved the mac and cheese as well as the shrimp and grits. My husband really enjoyed the chicken fried chicken. My only complaints were that my fried green tomatoes appetizer never came out. And, the pumpkin cobbler was very very.

I have only been to Puckett’s a couple of times, but that is because I can only go there while on vacation since I do not live near one.

However, if it were easier and closer to get to one then I would be at Puckett’s all the time.

Everything there is awesome: people, service, food, etc.

I tell everyone possible that if they get near a Puckett’s then they need to go to it!

Brisket and pulled pork were solid and the small of the restaurant was amazing. It has a very causal atmosphere, nothing to write home about. Waiter got our order wrong and pulled chicken had several bones in it.

Dinner at Puckett's was awesome. We had a reservation and we didn't have to wait at all. Seated us as soon as we walked in the door and there was several people waiting. Food was hot and delicious. Our waitress was attentive but not worrisome. Overall experience was great!!

Fried chicken and meatloaf were excellent. Warm pecan cobbler with ice cream was delish. Good service and entertainment. Fun casual give and reasonable prices.

Went here on October 5th at 8:30pm (group of 4). Waited over an hour for food, with no apologies from the staff. When food arrived (ribs and brisket) it was over cooked and I challenge whether it was even smoked BBQ or they ran out and reheated "back ups". The meat looked like it was baked. The best part of the meal was the sweet potato fries. The only thing that saved this place was a good band and beer.

Waited over an hour for dinner. Mediocre sandwich. Didn’t send it back because I didn’t want to wait another hour. Waiter was very pleasant though.

We had very poor service, had to eat our meal quickly to make an engagement on time. Food was dry because it wasn't served on time. Management came and spoke with us but offered no real help except an apology.

Food was delicious. The singer/musician Olivia Faye is a star! Puckett's never disappoints. Food came fast and hot. Portions are large enough to share but why would you want to? Definitely will be back again!

This was our second visit in 3 years. Not quite as good as our first visit. Chicken was good, the batter was very salty though, sides were good, sad there was no music or entertainment when we were there.

Good old-fashioned Southen comfort food and if you worry about calories, forget it for a day. It was delicious food, good size portions, and prices were fairly reasonable (except steaks) considering the location. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience, especially for a 1st time, and we will be back!

Puckett’s was recommended to me by several people. The online reviews were great. But it was just okay for me. I had 3 side dishes. My friend wanted brisket but they said it was too dry so they didn’t recommend it. She had pork and said it was just ok.

The dish I had was supposed to be brisket, it was hard as a rock and looked like pot roast. Worst so called brisket ever. The only good thing was our server. Manager never came over to discuss our comments on the food. Very disappointing

Dined here for my husband’s birthday dinner. Had requested a quiet area/booth... Hosts were very friendly and I think they did their best to accommodate us, however, we were still stuck in a corner very close/directly next to a big 20+ top party. But I understand downtown is busy and once we settled in it wasn’t a huge deal. Food was very good and our ribeye steaks were cooked perfectly. Our Server gave us overall ”OK” service. Again, being downtown and a little busy, I understand, but it being my husband’s birthday, and on a slower weeknight, I was hoping for a little more hospitality from our Server. (i.e. Our waters were not refilled the entire visit... until we were signing the tab.) We chose the restaurant because of the proximity to the concert we were attending afterwards and we had a birthday discount coupon. May visit again if we have another reason to be downtown! But really not on our “must go back” list.

The service was quick and the food was pretty good. However, I was given a free meal from a manager several months ago to offset the bad experience I had before. I live a few hours out nashville so it was my first chance to get back to Pucketts. I was informed that since they have had a few changes of management my free meal was no longer valid. I couldn't even get a current manager to come out and speak to me or apologize about the situation. I will not be a returning customer (understand now why their turnover rate is so high).

Hopping place close to Broadway. Very lively and noisy, but quite fun. BBQ and sides were tasty and portions were generous. Staff was friendly.

It is a Nashville most I just wished the live music had started earlier. I think it would help reduce the noise level of this establishment. It was very loud.
