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.

The live music was great and lasted just long enough to enjoy, about an hour. Afterwards, we could enjoy visiting with our friends. The food is always satisfying and delicious.

Food was prepared and served well. Good portions. Waiter ( Beckman) was perfect and on spot. Seen to all our needs and answered every question. We quit eating out alot because of crappy food or service but Pucketts really made this a great dining experience

When we checked in for our reservation, the hosts were thrilled we had reserved a table, and thanked us immensely, as it appeared as though they were running short handed.

I will say, our server was top notch, even though it was very evident that he was spread too thin for the amount of tables we had. He did his best, and we were very happy with his service.

I ordered the ribeye steak and my husband ordered a chicken dinner. The food was “okay”. My steak was over-cooked (I like mine super rare, though and that is a challenge sometimes), but it had a good flavor.

My husband enjoyed his.

What really left a bad taste in our mouths was that as soon as I put the last bite of my steak in my mouth, the host came over with our check and asked us to vacate the table.

She stated that the table was needed for other guests and that we could move to the bar if we wanted to stay. I think we had occupied the table for about 45 minutes total.

What if I wanted some dessert or an after dinner glass of wine?

She never asked, and we paid our check, and left, feeling like not only were we rushed, but we were getting kicked out.

I would rather drive to Franklin and eat at the Pucketts off the square than go back to the Pucketts in Murfreesboro.

Visiting from Las Vegas, wanted to try something local. Nice place, food (the portions were large!) and service was great. The TN Pound Cake topped with Hattie’s ice cream was a great dessert. We will be relocating to the Boro in April and this will be on our list to revisit.

Food was great but I was very disappointed that the beef short ribs were not available as they were also unavailable the previous time I dined at Pucketts. Last time I had the shrimp and grits and this time the salmon and both were delicious...but I was craving meat...lol!
The entertainment on the night (Troy Kemp) was awesome! He got the crowd involved and it was a fun night. My only issue here is that from what I understand performers play for tips and I don't know that diners are made aware that this is the performers only source of income on the night, with many assuming they are paid by the restaurant.
Anyways, we'll be back and hope you have the ribs next time!
Thanks!

My sincerest apologies for the issue with the short ribs. We are working to get the issue figured out. Hope to have you back in again soon!!

Visited for breakfast. My over medium eggs were cooked over light. The cheese grits were watery and I couldn't taste any cheese. The biscuit was good, but just like the ones you can buy frozen at any grocery store. If you get toast, you will be served one unbuttered slice.

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....)

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.
