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.

Honestly, I don’t understand what all the hype is about. The food was mediocre, the place was noisy and you are rushed through your dinner (and we were there on a Tuesday).

Service was not great during a visit, though the restaurant was not busy initially. Water glasses remained empty most of the meal, food service was exceptionally slow. Food quality is always good, simply did not have the usual Puckett's customer service tonight.

This is a place I really wanted to like and come back to. The food was excellent and the music showcase was great. The servers were very nice. The problem started when we were sat next to a table for 24. They wouldn’t give us a high chair for our 15 month old but gave us a booster with no strap so that wasn’t safe. They said the setup for 24 didn’t leave enough space and there were no other options. We ended up holding her and passing her around. It was almost impossible to enjoy the meal and my wife ended up getting covered in sweet tea when the toddler spilled a glass full (this is why we put them in high chairs). Then when the party of 24 came we were totally forgotten. It took forever to finish up and we just wanted to get the hell out of there. We ended up waiting outside with our daughter while the rest of the party finished. If you’re looking for a family dinner skip this one.

Great food and generous portions. We went for dinner and stayed for the Sunday Showcase (live music) so it was a full house with lots of energy. It was one of the best nights we had in Nashville!!! We also went the day before for breakfast, and that was also fantastic! Highly recommend!!!

I ordered the fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes and green beans. I based my decision on the description written in the menu. The breading on the chicken was so thick and tough it was hard to cut. The mashed potatoes had very large lumps of non-mashed potato and the green beans had no flavor. This meal gave country cooking a bad name.

The food was good but I didn’t realize the meatloaf was smoked so that was a little surprising and the green beans were canned I believe but we had a great time and the other meals ordered were very good. I highly recommend the hot chicken sandwich and the beef brisket.

Had reservations at 6:30, they were telling people 35-40 minute wait time. Told them we had reservations and they took us directly to our table. Server was friendly and efficient. We thought the food was excellent. Liked it well enough that we went back for breakfast again the next morning. Recommend if you are looking for casual, family friendly dining.

Tables too close together, preventing ease of movement by staff and patrons. Also meant conversations from nearby tables were bothersome

Delicious Southern food in a bustling general store/concert venue. We had reservations and were seated immediately. It was extremely busy, but the service was top notch. Mac and cheese and fried brownie dessert were amazing!

The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting which makes me very nervous about the cleanliness of the kitchen. This location used to be a lot better but it seems that it has devolved into a tourist trap.

Had a reservation for mid-afternoon on Sunday but it looked like a reservation might not be necessary at that time. Our server was very friendly, had several tables but still made us feel like we had her attention. She refilled our beverage glasses repeatedly without us asking. We had the fried pickles to start which were very nicely done. I went with the Nashville cheesesteak-got the mac n cheese side, my friend got the pulled pork sliders. All were tasty. The apple crisp/cobbler for desert was great as was the bowl of ice cream. All in all a great experience. I plan on returning the next time I'm in Nashville-
