Southern
The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember! Our philosophy is simple: Real Food, Real People, Real Fun.

    We arrived at 5:30pm. My husband ordered an IPA and they said they had none,so he ordered something different. I ordered a Sauvignon Blanc and the waitress came back and said they had none, so I ordered something different. We ordered Baby Back Ribs for dinner and the waitress came back and said they were out of ribs and it would take 30-40 minutes to get them. She asked if we would like to order something different. At this point we said no thank you and since we hadn’t yet been served the drinks we didn’t want in the first place, we said we would go elsewhere for dinner. The young waitress was very polite and this review is directed at the management only. We have been fans of Puckett’s in both Franklin and Nashville and this was totally unexpected and disappointing.

    Puckett's Chattanooga was such a great experience for our Valentine's dinner. Food was delicious, service was exceptional and the atmosphere could not be beat. This restaurant has southern comfort food, live music, and they treat you like family.

    We had a great experience at Puckett’s. Our food was delicious and hot. We had a strange request for them. We are traveling and didn’t want to leave our luggage in our car while we went to the IMAX theater nearby. They offered a room for us to store our luggage until we were were finished. We returned and had cobbler for dessert, and picked up our luggage. They gave us peace of mind.

    This was the worst dining experience I have ever had. It became a $100 mistake for my husband and I. The food was tasteless, except for the turkey. The food was cold on both trays. Thank goodness for the turkey we did receive. Too much pork on plate and we requested only turkey on the second tray as there was 5 of us. Salad was the ONLY thing that was tasty. Our server was either tired or can not do the job. She was pleasant, however, kept repeating our needs, such as silverware. The five of us at dinner swore to NEVER eat at Pucketts again. We will not recommend it either. Maybe your restaurant needs to stay out of the Thanksgiving buffet business.

    Food was cold, service was lacking. It was a holiday, and you could tell all the staff just wanted to go home. Probably won’t be back for Thanksgiving again but would consider it another time.

    We (party of 4) ate Thanksgiving dinner here. The server was very abrupt and did not explain the menu until asked. When the family style meal was delivered there was insufficient room on the table for the food but the serving dishes had very little food in them. The food was extremely poor quality. I would compare it to hospital food. There was a tray of meat that had bbq, turkey, dressing and a slab of food that was unidentifiable. Several of us tasted it and still had no idea what it was. We asked the server and he said it was meatloaf. It tasted nothing like meatloaf or any other food we had ever eaten. When we finished eating we had a couple of pieces of turkey left because we had asked for seconds on meat. We asked for a to-go box and we’re told that they were not allowed because it was ‘all you care to eat’. So what were they going to do with the leftovers!?! Serve them to someone else? The meal was $40pp plus tax and tip for one of the absolutely worst meals I’ve ever had at any restaurant.

    We had a table of 5 and the food portions they brought out was more for 2 people at a time. For $40 per person and 5 pp at a table please bring the correct portions. Yes we could get more but it took time and everyone had a two bites on their plate at a time. Taste was great but very disappointed in portions.

    The appetizers were loaded with grease, our catfish came out with burned crust, but it was raw inside. The fries were rewarmed, and the corncake was tough as leather. Nothing had any taste. Will not eat there again.

    We ate Thanksgiving lunch here, so it was a set menu at a set price. The food provided was at a good quantity and decent quality. Service was reasonable, and attentive. Food offerings included turkey, bbq pork, hamburger steak, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes. Meal also came with salad or soup. I enjoyed all of this but the green bean casserole as it tasted very canned. Biggest disappointment were in the desserts - reasonable choices of pecan or pumpkin pie, however both were extremely disappointing as they were flavorless.

    Hey Sara! Thank you for spending your Holidays with us and I greatly appreciate all of the feedback. I am sorry the desserts were disappointing but we will use this to improve in the future. I hope you have a great holiday season!

    We ate at Puckett’s for the Thanksgiving dinner at noon. The restaurant was packed but we were served quickly. The macaroni and cheese was delicious, but the turkey and potatoes were flavorless. I wish there had been more choice for dessert.

    We went for the Thanksgiving dinner. The service and waitstaff were wonderful! They were the saving grace for the experience. The food, however, was terrible. There were also items listed on the original Thanksgiving menu that were not served like cranberry sauce and brussel sprouts. Quite a waste of money for us as it was $45 per person. Will not go back due to the poor food quality.

    We were seated next to a screaming infant. Table was wet and silverware was not acceptable. We were reseated in another section with clean utensils. Food was just ok. Sweet potato fries were cold. Meatloaf was hamburger with brown gravy. Just not what we expected. Nothing was a standout and special for my Mother’s Day meal.

    Our food was absolutely delicious, but our server was never to be found. We had to leave mid meal because our son had to be taken to the hospital (he wasn’t with us), and no one could find her to get our check. Finally, she walked out very nonchalantly and we were able to pay and leave. The atmosphere was great.

    Scrumptious barbecue, tasty strong drinks. Fried green tomatoes were over-fried but still good over warm pimento cheese. Favorite: homemade fried pound cake with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. OMG! We’ll be back.

    It was just a very unfortunate experience top to bottom. I will preface this with the fact that we had an issue with our reservation that was handled professionally and fairly by the team at Puckett’s. This review is strictly for the dining experience itself. The service was painfully slow and our server struggled to get the right meal to the right person. Further, the drinks from the bar were very poorly made (or poured.) My wife received a glass of wine in a glass that had visible food on the outside of the glass and didn’t appear to have been washed. The food was really just poorly prepared too to bottom. Our appetizers were over-cooked. The chicken I ordered was cold, chewy, and had no flavor outside of the whiskey sauce it came with. I’ve previously been to Puckett’s in Franklin and enjoyed the experience, but this meal - which cost $70, was on-par with something I could get at McDonalds. Very disappointing.
