Southern
The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember! Our philosophy is simple: Real Food, Real People, Real Fun.

We had a reservation. We were seated and no one came by our table for about 15 minutes. Then one server (on her way by our table) mentioned that she would be right back to our table. We waited for another five minutes and still no one to our table. So we left and went down the street to the nice lil Italian restaurant (which was amazing by the way....)

A couple of the dishes were quite good, but the chicken and ribs were very tough. Not worth the money actually.

The ribeye is a bit pricey, but it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. We came to see live music, so the noise level was expected. All in all, Puckett's is one of our favorite places and never disappoints.

I was really disappointed. We have never had a bad meal at the Franklin location, but our experience at the Murfreesboro location was less than expected. They were short wait staff during our visit but our server tried his best to give us a good experience anyway.

We went to Pucketts to watch a local artist, Cassidy Daniels, play.
I had been to Franklin and Downtown Nashville locations, but this was my first to Murfreesboro. It has a fun and upbeat atmosphere, cool decor, and GREAT food!!!
Highly recommend!

Please be aware that Open Table allows you to make reservations when this establishment is not open! Reservation at 10, didn’t open until 11, so we left, as did another party.

My brother was in town from South Carolina for business. I gave him several options for dinner. He chose Puckett's. We both ordered the Piggy Mac. Both dishes were outstanding. The groups, Steel Blossoms, performed a great show. The servers provided good service. Great overall experience.

Great birthday dinner out. My husband came in from Chicago to celebrate my birthday while I was in Murpheesboro for business. I knew the right place to go for great food and music. Casual environment with homemade food. BBQ chicken was fantastic. Huge salads loaded with meat. Service was attentive in a very busy place. Music is always top notch. Great sound in such a small place. He was absolutely taken by Puckett’s and the quite downtown on a Saturday night. Fabulous evening with music ending at a reasonable 9pm. Great for the older crowd just looking for a nice dinner with great country music.

Everything is very good at Puckett’s. The menu is primarily “down home” cooking with a few twists. The craft beer selection is excellent.

What we like best is that Puckett’s is an outstanding music venue. They bring in good acts, the sound is excellent, and the sight lines are good.

Thankfully we had made a reservation and were seated instantly, even though others were waiting at the door. Last time I was there I found them to carry Brandy - this time they said they only had Peach flavored Brandy - so my cocktail experience wasn't what it could have been. Server was very busy. The space is chilly - front door opens to the dining room. My chicken meal was great, my hubby's potatoes were luke warm. Portions are large. The chicken strip appetizer with fries totally could have been my meal. A cobbler is defiantly shareable for 2 or more people - though they'd already run out of the featured flavor of the day by the time we ordered at 7:30ish. Front row to the singer, but not so loud you couldn't still have a conversation. I loved this place and will be back.
