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.

The positives were the fried green tomatoes, fried chicken and the atmosphere. The negatives were the service, mashed potatoes, green beans and ribs. Most of the food was flavorless. Expensive meal that was disappointing.

Was not what I expected. Had the impression food was going to be outstanding. Turned out to be mediocre at best. My salmon was over cooked and dry/not fresh. "Whiskey" glaze was pretty much tasteless. My wife had the pulled pork and it was also pretty bland. BBQ sauces were only average, if that. Can't recommend the ambience either. Only brite spot was our waitress. Very attentive and personable

We set our reservations at 7:30 so we could see the live music at 8pm while enjoying a good meal. My meal was delightful and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the beers on tap. Great experience.

Waitress was friendly, but kinda forgot about our drinks.
My son was looking forward to trying the mac & cheese, and he and I were both extremely disappointed in it :(
Was told there was blackberry cover, so I ordered that. But it was peach. She already had it dished up for me at that point though. It was ok, but I had been looking forward to the blackberry.
The rest of the food was OK. Nothing to write home about though.
Artist was good and that's the main reason we went there.
Decor was nice as well.
They're doing a good job of social distancing.

We are from out of town and found Puckett’s on yelp and we were able to get a reservation on open table. They did a great job of social distancing, all staff were in makes and wearing them correctly, tables were marked off for distancing, people waiting for table were asked to wait outside. We had a great server and to eat we had fried mushrooms, fried pimento cheese, chicken and Mac and cheese. All was great and we would for sure come back again.

The food was amazing. We were a party of 5 and tried many things including the whiskey glazed wings, fried green tomatoes, hot chicken sandwich, short ribs, Southern fried chicken, chicken fried chicken and the piggy Mac. All were amazing! We are looking forward to coming back

Entertainment was awesome, food was adequate, service was slow. Wish the entertainment was a little louder, hard to hear over the talking.
I was told they would not turn up the sound.

First visit and was hoping for better food and attentive staff. Instead, the food was edible but nothing special. The restaurant was very understaffed so ordering took quite a while as did refills and getting our check and paying. The bright spot was the musician -Drake Freeman- who was very good and engaged well with the staff.

Meh. Brisket was tough, cornbread was a hockey puck. Music was good! And surprising the house wine was not bad. Would not recommend

Best meatloaf I’ve ever eaten (I don’t even really like meatloaf but it was amazing!). Skillet Mac and cheese is highly recommended!! Now I want to go back for breakfast.

The service was excellent. Food was fair. Several at our table had ribs - all agreed they were dry and overcooked. The meat loaf was o.k. Excellent Cuban sandwich. Pound cake was very disappointing. Very heavy with almost a cornbread consistency. Was hoping for music, but we were there at 6 pm and music did not start until 8 pm. Was conveniently located to Ryman Theater where we were headed after dinner.

We chose this restaurant based on its popularity; however, we were very disappointed with the food. The service and atmosphere were nice and fun, but drinks and food were definitely subpar. Even as we were arriving, others leaving were talking amongst themselves about how disappointed they were with their meals. Maybe it was an off night, but I would not chance it again. Would not recommend.

We're frequently travelers to Nashville and always make a point of having a meal at Puckett's. It's usually awesome. On the particular night, not so much. We had a reservation for 7:15 and were seated promptly. The restaurant was full and the live act for the night was preparing to play. Understandably, it took some time for our server to get to us so we weren't annoyed by that. However, after ordering and our lengthy wait, for food, we were served 6 cold meals... everything from steak to BLT sandwiches, fries, mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes, etc. All cold. It was our choice not to send the food back, fearing it would be another 40 minutes before we would have anything to eat. As a result, we left a lot of food on the table that night. We noticed several other tables with uneaten food as well, after patrons had left. This was, of course, no fault of our server. He was courteous and tried his best to take care of us. Just too many tables to take care of. Also, the singer/guitar player performing that night was ok, but wasn't on par with the level of talent we're accustomed to seeing at Puckett's and the other places around town. The sound was too loud, and all the songs the guy played, originals and covers, we're super fast and all pretty much sounded the same. The music only exacerbated what was a less than pleasant dining experience on this particular night. We love Puckett's and will definitely go back, but will probably stick to breakfast and lunch when the staff isn't so overwhelmed. It's possible our experience could be chalked-up as just a bad night, and would still recommend the restaurant to others.

We visited there on Sunday, Feb.23. We picked out this place because the menu looked good. We had a reservation at 4:45 and were seated promptly. Great start. Server was Josh but he said we could call him Jones because there were many Josh's there. The hubby's started out with beers and we ordered fried green tomatoes and fried pickles to start. Both were delicious and served fresh and hot. One person had a burger. It was very good but the sweet potato fries were not hot. Two of us ordered the recommended meat loaf. It was tasty but was barely lukewarm as were the mashed potatoes. The green beans were bland. They needed some bacon and seasoning. The corn cakes were cold. We asked for a new round which came out warmer but could've been warmer. My hubby ordered fried chicken and it started good but when he got into the drumstick, blood started to flow. Yuk. It literally was pooling near the bone. Jones apologized and offered to bring a new plate. Hubby decided to just send the drumstick back so Jones could show it to the chef. The explanation the chef sent back was that it was a vein that burst. If it was cooked properly, the vein wouldn't have burst it would have been cooked. We decided not to wait for the replacement of the chicken. Jones was very apologetic. It was not his fault. He provided excellent service. Overall the food was tasty but served barely lukewarm.
