Very nice location and great staff and service. Definitely southern (Tennessee) food. BBQ mix was good. Collard greens not my thing. Pancake bread interesting.

We had a great meal. We really enjoyed our visit. The service was great. We really like the fried green tomatoes. The red neck burrito was interesting and really good.

Funny it asks about noise level when we went to eat and stay for the live music. Puckett’s always delivers outstanding service and entertainment.

The food was fabulous. Amazing brisket and BBQ. The portions were actually for two people. We even took some home to have the next day. The atmosphere was very quaint. A must stop when your in Franklin.

It’s a good place, but the short rib wasn’t heated all the way thru from being in the cooler. Gotcha. They made it right but was too late so took it home. Go try it, it is Puckett’s.

Pucketts does a nice job of social distancing of the tables which I appreciate. The food was OK. We decided to leave after two appetizers because we were looking for something different. I could see that families with small children loved the spot. Very casual presentation of casual food (a simple burger, BBQ). No complaints, service was good but I would prefer as a lunch spot vs. a dinner spot. They do have music which is later in the evening but had not started when we were there. Good beer on tap. Could see that it could be fun on a busy evening for a late night snack.

I was hesitant reserving a table at first as it seemed like it might be too "touristy" which it is to an extent. However, once we got our food and some live music came on, we realized this place was legit. I highly recommend the smoked meatloaf!

Was visiting from Alabama. Celebrated my 30th birthday at Puckett’s with a couple of friends. We all loved it! The food was delicious and the service was great! Loved the atmosphere! And the band playing made it the perfect night!

Everyone needs to check this place out! Try the pimento cheese bites!

Puckett’s never disappoints!! The fried green tomatoes are spectacular and the southern fried chicken is out of this world. Service is always great, and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

The chicken fried chicken we used to order came with two plump pieces of chicken now they have reduced it to one piece and it was over breaded and tough. It is fine to cut back on the portion but the one piece should be what we are used to. We always go with a big group and 3 of the 8 had the chicken and felt the same way I did.

Good location. Hard to find parking. Honored reservation expeditiously. Performance talent was less than expected. Food was good. Careful with fried brownie dessert, it takes two to eat it.
