Comfort Food
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!

    Really good food and our waitress was wonderful. The hostess was a little snarky, but I am sure she was just dealing with a very large crowd.

    We waited two months for our reservation and we were not disappointed! Quaint atmosphere and amazing food. Our server was newer and a bit inattentive but very nice. We enjoyed the experience and will be going back.

    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.

    Musician was good but WAYYYYYY too loud. We were here for dinner and not a full concert. Piggymack was lukewarm and a small portion with no option of side. Also incomplete with breadcrumbs. Ribeye was over cooked and under seasoned.

    When we go to Puckett's it's because they have the band, Brother Maven, playing live. The setting, value, and music is an outstanding evening out and we look forward to it every time. Food has been mostly good. Highly recommend their fried pickles, BLT, bread pudding, and Moscow Mule. Parking has never been an issue. Highly recommend!

    We came for dinner and a show. The falling off the bone half rack was tough and not moist and tender. The potato salad was not very good. The fried chicken was wonderful. The singer was ok, not great…didn’t sing anything with which I was famiiar.
