A little history… Have you ever walked into a place, and you instantly feel at home? Well, Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant is that sort of place. Founded in the 1950s, Puckett's served as a country store to several communities in Williamson County. It has always been the place to buy some food, grab a good homemade sandwich and catch up on the day's events in the world and at home. In 2004, Puckett's opened in Historic Downtown Franklin, and now in 2010, Downtown Nashville as well. Southern breakfasts with local, organic eggs, award winning burgers, plate lunches,fresh salads, cherry wood smoked BBQ pulled pork and ribs, and homemade desserts, make every meal memorable. Add live entertainment from some of Nashville's greatest artists and songwriters and you have the complete Puckett's experience! Open at 7am every day, Puckett's invites you to come on down and see us! Real Food, Real People, Real Fun!

    We really enjoy Puckett's and go there frequently since moving to the area three months ago. Service is typically great and we have never been there when there has been live music. Last night our server was very uncharacteristically rushed and the music was incredibly loud. So loud that if you could think, no one could hear what you say and you couldn't hear what the person next to you was saying. Could be that I don't understand the point of live music at dinner, but at Puckett's it was as not to be entertained and have a dinner conversation. We'll still go, but will pass on the music.

    Wonderful service (even though our sweet server has almost half the room) and atmosphere, loved the love music. Disappointed in our meals.

    We took visitors for their first experience at Puckett's. We had reservations for the four of us and were seated at the table in front of the stage. Normally a great thing, but the constant music so close to us did not allow for conversation. Next time I will request a table farther from the stage. Food and service was very good, as usual.

    We were two of a handful of Franklin residents who were there on a Wednesday night. It's good that visitors come to Puckett's but Franklin diners are much more likely to return. Which we have, and which we will continue to do. Food and service is uniformly good. Entertainment is a plus.

    We had never been to this Puckett’s but we wanted to see one of our favourite local bands so we drove over from Murfreesboro. Nice location right across from the municipal parking garage (free); we walked around Franklin a bit then went in for dinner and music. Service was as good as the other Puckett’s and the food also just as good. Puckett’s do not have a huge menu but what they have is all good. The meatloaf is probably the best around Middle TN. Wife had that, I had a great pulled pork sandwich. The band Radio Farm did a great 1 1/2 hour set and table service was attentive throughout. We even had a very tasty chocolate cobbler for dessert. Overall a nice evening out!

    We had an excellent meal at Puckett's in Franklin. The shredded pork and brisket melted in your mouth. We enjoyed the meal so much that we took our family to lunch at Puckett's in Columbia the following day.

    I love Puckett’s and I have for a long time. I came this night for live music and since it turned out to be my favorite local group (the deltas) it was even better. Good drinks, great food, awesome music. The staff was great about getting us seated ASAP and the Open Table system worked out very well.

    Puckett's is a great venue- my husband and I enjoyed a great meal of brisket and were enjoyed the musical performance. We look forward to visiting again soon. It was a great environment to have a lovely evening of food and entertainment with friends. The staff were attentive and friendly.

    Our meal was a celebration for both of our mothers’ birthdays. We wanted them to experience a taste of Franklin so we went early, and had a good dinner until the couple next to us was seated with their pooch. Am I the only one repulsed by animals in our restaurants? I couldn’t get past the smell. Will think twice before eating here again.

    We just moved here and had to see what the fuss was about. The service was outstanding, and we expected the food to be good… but wow. Our group tried a few appetizers, several entrees, and many desserts. We were wowed by so many food items I just can’t pick one to rave about (the ribs and the fried chicken were two tops for several of us, though). And, the music was really great. We’ll be back again and again.
