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.

We were disappointed in the menu change but the food we received was very good. Some of the items we were looking for were no longer offered. Dessert was advertised as a Cobbler of the Day - came out as bread pudding - sent it back.
Still enjoy Puckett's but this time was disappointed.

We had made dinner reservations to listen to the music on Saturday night. The food was excellent our waitress was a darling. Unfortunately the hostess booth was in direct blockage of our views of the stage. To make matters worse to two young men that were manning the hostess station sat there slouched over the hostess station on their cell phones texting their friends all night. It may not seem like such a big deal not to see the stage but that was the reason we chose your restaurant so that we could enjoy the show. This was this past Saturday and the singers you had seemed great but unfortunately we could not enjoy them and it did ruin our night.

I will definitely be returning! The Hot Chicken sandwich was very spicy and the Fried Chicken was made very well. The service was wonderful as well. Reservations are not needed here, but it saved us from a 30 minute wait.

Puckett's self-description gives one the sense that it is a historic Nashville mainstay. Well it got us there but it is very much a contemporary tourist destination and a pretty good one at that. The music, food and atmosphere were all good and the location is very convenient to the hotel's and honky tonk's on Broadway. For us it was a fine "one and done" stop.

La nourriture et l’ambiance étaient excellentes ! Le service était très ordinaire. On ne venait pas nous voir. Notre facture a été faite sans nous demander si on voulait un dessert. Bref, on s’est senti pressé ...

Had reservations for 7 at 5:15pm. They called me at 4:45pm to tell me my table was ready. I told them my reservation wasn’t until 5:15pm and they said they knew but the table was ready now. So we started heading to the resturant and before we could get there ( we were 10 minutes away) they called again. I get they were busy and all but the reservation was for 5:15pm. Anyway, seated promptly once we arrived. Everyone liked their food except one in our party who said the chicken breast was over cooked and tough and that the broccoli was cold. I ordered a second beverage part way thru dinner that I never got from the waiter. Other than that, pretty happy with the meal. Blueberry cobbler for desert was a highlight.

Puckett’s was very busy but came up short on a couple things. Half our ribs were tender.. half not. Mac n cheese was very good as well as pulled pork. Brisket no and sweet potato fries old. So in short it was and hit and miss. But good for them. They have multiple locations with a lot of fans. I would give them another chance when I’m in town.

Delightful time with friends prior to concert. Wish I had known a bit more about early evening parking. Paid a huge amount for lot on the street. Two blocks down by calling McReynolds venue was $10 parking. Staff should have been more helpful when I called and asked. Food was wonderful

Came to Nashville as part of wedding anniversary to have dinner and a show at the Ryman. I decided on this place for dinner based on its location along with some positive reviews. I found the service adequate but not overwhelming, the food overpriced for the taste, presentation, and portions. The dining room was loud and crowded making table conversation mostly impossible. Next time I’ll try another place.

Service was great! We were seated shortly after arriving for our reservation. The table we sat at was narrow and made for a crowded eating area, but it was a booth in the corner that was quieter than he rest of the restaurant seemed. My mother ordered a chicken cheesesteak that had no cheese on it, and the brisket sandwich was just meat on a bun. Fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits were worth coming for!

We definitely did not leave with empty stomachs. The brisket nachos and the fried green tomatoes were delicious. So much so I couldnt finish my dinner. Which was just as delicious. Made reservations for 8:15, got there early and was seated by 7:45. Staff was super nice and very attentive. Highly recommend this place and looking forward to next time!

I made reservations after being told this was a must experience restaurant. The table next to us complained their food was cold. Guess what? Our food was cold also. My Memphis style pulled pork was absolutely bland in flavor besides being cold. The Mac n cheese was good. Tried it and learned. My first time in Nashville...this was the only meal I could’ve done without.
