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.

Good food tonight. Staff was friendly as usual. But in the past the brisket has been more moist. Maybe a off night. Server was very sweet.

The breading on the fried foods was extremely salty. We had to remove the breading to finish the dishes.

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!

Hmmmm ..: one of my favorite go to spots when in Nashville but was a bit disappointed this time. All the food came out warm, but not hot. Pimento cheese ball apps not so great lukewarm. Same for shrimp and grits. Fries were dry and cold. Waiter did the bare minimum, barely came by, seemed disinterested in our experience, and forgot a couple asks we had. Brought 4 friends that came first time and I wish they had a better experience.

Our group of 3 couples had the perfect booth! Server was super friendly and knowledgeable of the food/drinks. Was not rushed to leave after finishing our meal, so we were able to spend time catching up with one another and planning the rest of our evening.

Very fun. Loved the live music and could still have conversation at the table because the volume wasn’t too loud. Perhaps under staffed. Mix up with an order but waitress did not check back and was late with refills.

Our food was great, prices were definitely reasonable. We enjoyed the live music and ambiance with our 4 children (ages 11-16). The service could be improved, waited a long time for drinks, table was full of appetizer dishes and specific requests (no onions) did not happen. Understanding everyone is short staffed, the issues were minimal.
Overall great experience and food was worth it.

Pucketts is always a great choice, we love the food and local entertainment on a Saturday night it’s perfect for us. I have always loved that I can make reservations for 2 or 3 people on a Saturday night. Apparently Pucketts has a new rule and I am sad that now you can only make reservations for 6 or more. We have been coming all through the pandemic but I guess we won’t be able to do that now. Hopefully in the Fall they will go back to their old reservation rules.

Disappointing. Service much slower than previous visits. Food ok. Shrimp and grits was a slurry. Brisket tough. Writing it off to ‘still coming up to speed post pandemic’.

Wonderful experience. Family in from out of town and we wanted for them to experience a little bit of Nashville’s dining and music scene. Food was great, as advertised and the musician was good and very engaging. We will definitely be back.

Our party went in for a late lunch. Not sure if it was time of day but had the worst brisket ever had. Dry and cold as if it sat all day. So hungry I ate it but didn’t feel great after. Another in my party sent back fried catfish for same reason. They exchanged with pulled pork which he didn’t eat because was also cold and dry. Was not a good day here.

Our server was fantastic but unfortunately, the food was terribly over cooked and not as described on the menu. We love Puckett’s, but this location just wasn’t up to par.

Food experience was not good. My husband’s ribs were so tough that you could not even cut with knife. They were obviously over-warmed in the microwave. We weren’t charged for them, but were charged for substitute sandwich which arrived when everyone else was almost done eating. I wanted the short rib from the menu, but it was not available however I was not told this by the waiter until after I ordered it. I didn’t want to hold everyone up while I chose a new menu item, so I just had an appetizer.

Music was good. Atmosphere was nice. However, although we always enjoyed coming to Puckett’s in the past, we will
likely not be back.

The food was just ok. I ordered the brisket taco salad and the brisket was so overdone that I could barely chew it. My son’s Nashville hot chicken sandwich was just average. The best thing we ordered was the fried green tomato appetizer with pimento cheese...that was really good. Our waitress was really awesome so no complaints there! I would try it again, but order something else.

I took my parents here as we passed through for a one night stay. Mom and dad loved everything—food, music and the spot. The band was great as well! I plan to return when I come back to Nashville next month.

The food at Puckett’s was phenomenal. By far the best barbecue my husband and I have ever had. He is a barbecue connoisseur and approved. I highly recommend the mac and cheese. This was our first time trying collard greens and they were delicious too. The service was great and the atmosphere was family friendly. I recommend making a reservation as they get busy during dinner time. Will definitely be visiting Puckett’s again.

Our table was ready on time with reservations. Each year we’re in town we visit this restaurant. However this year less wowed. Food ok. Appetizer wings were good, cocktails were good but main entree was very small and I thought they forgot the mashed potatoes but were hidden under the chicken! Portions are definitely much smaller than in past years. But overall fun to listen to Nashville music while dining.
