Puckett’s roots stretch way back to the ‘50s 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 — and five restaurants later, that aim still rings true. Puckett’s has built a name on hosting live, local musical acts and serving Southern staples. Authentic comfort food — classics like the meat-and-three and our famous slow-smoked BBQ — in a laid-back and down-home atmosphere is what we aim for you to remember. We hope you’ll come visit us soon!

Food was tasteless. Atmosphere was not good at all. Came here bc we had ate at the one in Nashville and loved it. This place. Not so much.
Supposed to have had live music and they canceled last minute so instead the manager blasted the football game( more like commercials). Just very lack luster for a over touristy town. Won’t be back.

Food and service were good. Prices were reasonable. Because of Covid19 occupancy restrictions the restaurant was very quiet.

Went to Pucketts for my Birthday. Everybody was friendly and we were seated near the stage, as requested. Service was great. We had smoked wings as a appetizer and a BBQ sampler entree that we shared. All outstanding. Use the open table app. Folks without reservations were waiting quite awhile. Highly recommend...

We made a reservation for breakfast. There was a long line when we got there and no one working the hostess stand. The waitresses would come and grab the next group in line every ten minutes. I tried to get their attention to tell them I had a reservation but they didn't acknowledge anyone. We left and went somewhere else. It would've taken an hour to get to the front of the line at that rate. Making a reservation was pointless.

Overall, food was okay. I personally prefer pulled pork to not have fat. Southern fried chicken had great taste. Fries were seasoned well.

Enjoyable experience. The food (breakfast) was excellent and the value was fair. Even though the restaurant only had two servers at the time, our service was quite good.

The service was terrible. We were the only people in the restaurant and the staff was down right mean and talked about us because we asked for real milk for coffee instead of using their old creamer on the table. No smiles at all from any of them we felt like a burden.

Took some friends from out of town here 10/27. We had never eaten there before but had recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed because the service, food and atmosphere was great. It started before we got seated, our friends were running late and were not going to make our 6 PM reservation, there was a wait and we were afraid we would be sent to the end of the line. Instead, the hostess pushed our reservation back 15 minutes and we were all seated promptly at that time. Our server was great and patiently answered our questions about the drink and food menu. He was attentive and worked hard to ensure we enjoyed our meal. We started out with orders of fried green tomatoes and the pimento cheese bites. The tomatoes were good and the cheese bites were great, a must order if you want an app. We all ordered something different and no one was unhappy. We had brisket, pulled pork, smoked meatloaf, the combo platter (for 2) and the beef rib. I had the beef rib and will go back just for it. The only caution is that some in our group thought the meats were a bit salty. I'm sure it's because of the rub used to smoke the meat because none of the sides were salty. I highly recommend Puckett's to anyone thinking about eating there and will certainly return to eat again.

Skillet cinnamon roll was delicious as well as the pancakes which were saucer size!! They had other options as well for gluten free. The Little Joe with egg whites and veggies and turkey bacon was just as good.

Loved the food at Puckett’s. Piggy Mac was amazing with the pork and the brisket, meatloaf was unique and tangy, pimento cheese balls were heaven (especially with the pepper jelly). We ended the meal with a fried brownie and it was fabulous. The manager and our waitress were both so sweet and kind and tried to make our meal as enjoyable and wonderful as possible. Will definitely be going again.

Love this place was excited that they were having music the night we went. Wait staff was very good kept our glasses full and attentive and friendly. I had Whiskey Salmon and mashed sweet potatoes and my only complaint was I could taste chlorine city water. I have well water so I am sensitive to that. My husband had fried chicken said it was very good! I still rate it 5!

Had reservations for breakfast with my kids while on vacation. They were unable to fulfill the reservation because they had too many people Call in and only had one chef. Opted to leave because after the wait surely it would be a long wait for food.

Our food was very good and it was nice to be able to make a reservation ahead and not have to wait in busy Pigeon Forge, TN. Have eaten at a couple of your other restaurants as well and enjoyed the hearty food. I was say the ambiance isn’t quite as good at this location.

We went to Pucketts for breakfast because we could make a reservation for a later time during an extremely busy weekend in Pigeon Forge. We were seated promptly and our server was attentive. These or is bright and interesting. The food was plentiful and hot right out of the kitchen. The breakfast menu is not extensive but there were a few interesting options and everything we had was seasoned and cooked well. I would highly recommend eating here.

Made reservation for lunch. Had to wait a while before we got a waiter. Found out later he was the manager filling in because they were short handed. Had to wait 45 minutes before another waitress came over and told us that the food was coming. Another 10 and they brought the food. Wife ordered the whisky chicken. When they brought it my wife asked the person delivering the food where the signature cornbread was. He said he would bring sone fresh if they made more. Never got it. Waitress came over and wife ley her know about the cornbread and she said oh, we dont have any more. Mind you we came for lunch at noon and you would expect them to tell you that when you order..not hope you dont notice. Also, wifes chicken piece was super small. Not worth the $15 for the meal. They did not offer to adjust the bill or anything. We figured who cares with all the other options in pigeon forge we probably just wont try this one again. Good luck Puckets!!

Nice place but our waitress was slow. Knocked off a star for this reason. Several tables that were seated after us got their food first. We were there a long time. Loved the food and will go back when we return to Pigeon Forge. Waitress was nice but slow.
