Friendly service. Tasty drinks and bites during happy hour.
Loved the Cherry cobbler
We drove to Franklin location since the CMA fest was in Nashville and couldn’t get into that location. This location is super cute and much less crowded. We had the chicken fried chicken and hamburger with sweet potato fries. Food was good and the waitress was extremely friendly and patient with special request on our order. Live music was not there the evening we went which we had hoped there would be and the menu had recently changed and was different than the online menu.
Good food, great service and entertainment. I would go again.
On the downside, the loud chatter from the kitchen often competed with the music too much. Also, would prefer the cover charge on a separate bill to ensure tax not added (hard to figure out!).
We go to Puckett's Downtown Franklin pretty often on Saturday nights for the live music. There have been some menu changes not necessarily for the better. Seems like they are cutting costs. Also, while their meatloaf was described by one of our group as "the best meatloaf" she ever had, they ran out of mashed potatoes which is the normal side with the meatloaf. Their wine offerings could be better! Servers are mostly great but we have had one or two that are less than attentive. Drinks typically come slowly. Love the music on Saturday nights!!!
The food and ambiance was great!
And the performance of the wannabeatles was awesome!
Maybe this was just an off day for the establishment-but we traveled from Nashville to eat here, were seated right away, but no waiter approached us for 20 minutes until I asked. Service very slow and staff seemed not to care.
It’s always the highlight of our trip. The entertainment is always great as well as the food and service.
Food cold to lukewarm ... mashed potatoes like a brick
Traveled over 5 hours for this event to hear the musicians that performed. First time at Puckett's in Franklin, but ate once before at the one in Columbia. Good food. Great service. Relaxing atmosphere. We totally loved the entertainment!
The food was flavorless which is so out of character for Puckett’s
Very friendly service from our server (I think her name was Carly) enabled me to give my brother (visiting from out of town) a good impression of Southern hospitality.
He was equally impressed with the cherry-smoked BBQ.
I thought my chicken fried chicken (yep, the word 'chicken' shows up twice there) was good, but the star of the show may have been the juicy, plump chicken wing appetizer with three fine dipping sauces.
Oh and yummy fruit tea to wash everything down.
Plus free live music on Monday night!
This was another time my wife & I enjoyed a great meal, great service and fabulous music! Every time we go to Franklin, Puckett’s is on our to-do list!
Love Puckett’s! Great atmosphere, great food! Will keep going again and again!
Loved my Chicken fried chicken, real mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans. My husband said his pulled pork was great and it was a huge portion. He tried two of their local beers and liked them both a lot. We went on a Wednesday evening and the place was packed but service was great. We had reservations and were seated immediately, some people walked in and were told an hour to hour and half wait. So glad I made reservation a week in advance!
Ordered squash casserole and all I got was plain out of the can squash. The wattreess told me that was the way they made it and yet a customer got squash casserole, but said the squash was bad. We we're not informed of the special by the wattreess, that would have been better than my burrito barbque.
Perfect venue for seeing a long since lover visiting from Seattle after twelve years. We sat outside on the evening of the best weather in decades, distancing ourselves from music which is always too loud to talk over in any venue, not just here. Great place to share the authentic Franklin experience with a visitor. The wait staff was totally enrolled in making this a wonderful reunion. Loved every minute of it. Thanks, Puckett's!
Awesome night! Great food and great music! Service was excellent!!
We enjoyed everything.
If you have young ones, be sure to visit on a Monday. Richard Jordan is an awesome singer/musician and is great with kids. And the food is not to be missed. We love Puckett’s!
Very much enjoyed. Loved everything about the experience!
It took us awhile to be seated due to people not leaving at our assigned table. However, everything was superb. The band was great-the Boche Brothers! The food was delicious Southern cuisine. The smoked chicken wings are to die for they are so tasty! I had fried chicken on waffles and my husband had seafood. It was served quickly and our server took excellent care of us. They constantly filled our water glasses and checked on us. I'd highly recommend both Pucketts restaurants in Franklin, TN.
Great place to enjoy great music and food❣️We really enjoyed our time there.
Great time. Enjoyed the live music. Its what draws me back to Franklin.
We went to dinner at Puckett’s on s Monday night. They had a live performer on stage, which was fun to watch. Our expectations were pretty high since reviews were good and it seemed like an iconic place. My husband had beef tips and grits, which he really liked. My daughter got chicken tenders. This was some of the best breaded chicken we had ever tasted. The big disappointment was the whiskey salmon. It was cooked okay, but hardly any flavor. The mashed sweet potatoes were good, but the broccoli had this weird black looking garlic butter sauce on it. Did not do much to enhance the broccoli! It’s a good restaurant, but I feel like we could find more interesting and similar fare elsewhere.
Great! Fun evening with friends and good musox
We took out of town company here and they loved it! Food was great, music was great, service was great! You can’t go wrong with Puckett’s!
First place we take people when they come into town to visit!
Tyler was our server and he was awesome!! We had friends from out of town visiting and they really enjoyed the food and music.
Everyone told us this was a “must” in Franklin and we sought it out specifically for its gluten free menu options. Unfortunately, the special menu item we ordered was not gluten free. We immediately told our server who was going to check with a manager. The manager was never asked about it. My friend is now extremely sick, still days later. Even if this had been an innocent mistake, the restaurant could have handled the situation differently. Sadly, they guaranteed that we will never visit any of their locations again.
Great live music and atmosphere. Server was very friendly and attentive. Food was great as always!
Food was excellent but you can easily share. Very large portions.
The waitress was very good and very personable.
Overall a good place.
Reminiscent of Cracker Barrel with less tack and higher quality grub. Try the meatloaf, made with slow-roasted pork and brisket. Like nothing you've tried before! Great for the family, friends, or a low-to-medium-key date night. I'll be back within two months.
My husband and I have been to Puckett's several times since moving to the Nashville area. We love their atmosphere on Saturday's for song writer's night. It's a great way to meet and listen to the creative minds behind huge country hits. The service is always quick and the food is always cooked to perfection. I will always recommend the Franklin location over the Nashville location, to avoid the hustle and bustle of downtown Nashville and tourists. Puckett's in Franklin gives you the opportunity to enjoy an evening with acoustic energy and terrific southern comfort food!! 5 out of 5 stars!
Food was decent. A great place to come for live music.
Food has improvedfrom “not so good” to pretty darn tasty.
Plz keep up the trend.
Really enjoyed the show. Food and service was great too.
We are repeat visitors to Puckett’s in Franklin and always enjoy it. The live music is fantastic and feels very intimate in the small setting. The food was great- I had steak tips & grits that were phenomenal and my husband had chicken fried steak because it’s his favorite. Service was excellent and overall a fantastic night!
Excellent food, service, music! Definitely going back!
I swear they've gotten better over the years, which is impressive given their location and demand. A true Nashville experience. For what it tries to be, an authentic Southern Nashville experience (with great music), it succeeds all around. The great service is the punctuation mark on 5 stars.
One of our favorite places in Franklin, love this place.
