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.

    Think we caught them at a bad time - 5 pm. Server was excellent. Food (meatloaf and sliders) was terrible - cold and dried-out. Obviously made hours earlier. We informed server who got manager involved. He comped the meal and gave us a gift certificate. We don't fault the front of house manager or the server. But kitchen manager needs to do better since this was the second time cold, old food was served to us. We did not complain the first time but two times is a problem. Maybe staff is under pressure not to toss food, considering cost. Maybe our timing of the meal was bad. Andy Marshall will need to figure it out since Puckett's has been around a long time and has a very good reputation. Maybe the next time we visit, things will be back to high standards.
    Puckett’s Historic Downtown FranklinResponded on February 2, 2024
    Hi Chuck! We value your loyalty as a returning guest, and would like to apologize that this was the second time your meal was not served up to par. We take your constructive criticism seriously, and we will be addressing your concerns with our kitchen to ensure that such issues get resolved. We are grateful for your recognition of our front of house efforts as well and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future with a dining experience that reflects Pucketts appropriately. - Robin Newman, Manager.

    Entertainment is always great ! Service is excellent and they do a great job managing reservations , especially for nights with cover charge for bands Unfortunately we tried several menu items ( we were there for 2 different performances) and none were very good. The meatloaf was honestly just awful and the burger had zero flavor -everything tastes pre-prepared and like it has been sitting under a warming light for hours. But the entertainment is outstanding and makes up for poor food.

    The place is cute but I would not return for Thanksgiving dinner. We had to wait at least 20 minutes for our drinks but the worst part was the food. The food tasted like it was on a warmer for hours, and ran out of things.

    The Thanksgiving lunch was done well. Enjoyed the atmosphere and food. I only gave it a 4 because I wish they would have let us choose our meats and they forgot to serve our rolls. We did get them to take home. Overall I appreciate the staff, working hard to serve us on a holiday. The food was great and would do it again.

    Had reservations and got right in, early. We shared the steak dinner, which was highly overpriced for the size and quality of the steak. About 1/4 inch thick. Side portions were small as well. I ordered French fries and got mashed potatoes. Our waitress mixed a great half n half tea. Atmosphere was good as was our waitress. The entertainment for the night was awesome, and was the best part of the night. We probably will not visit again, for dinner anyway.

    Awesome that they take reservations - we were going to see a show at the Franklin Theatre so we had a time deadline. We were seating right on time for our 6:15pm reservation. The food was very good with a good portion size. Kimmie, our server was very friendly and attentive despite the restaurant being packed. The chocolate cobbler was the absolute bomb!!! So good!!
