In a word: wonderful. And, in 3 words: make a reservation! Southern cooking, and hospitality, at its best. We showed up on a sold out show night... we were shown to our table instantly (same thing happened at the Nashville location; these people know the meaning of the word "reservation" and take it seriously!) Great food... perhaps fried pickles and... More

First off this restaurant is in a very charming area. We came here on 4th of July and it was the best place to be as it was very American and I felt like I was on the set of a 1960's country music video. The wait for Puckett's was long but they were very efficient with seating and it... More

We had a work dinner here with a large crowd (30+!). The staff did the best they could to 'network' the tables as we took over a good portion of the restaurant. For a group this large, the staff did a great job of serving us! It did take a bit of extra time, and people were served as food... More

Went to Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant in Franklin, TN based on a recommendation. There are always a lot of places to get good food when you travel, but getting to experience the "local flavor" makes it far better. Puckett's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went late afternoon for lunch. There was a steady stream of customers the entire time... More

Friends that live here recommended this place. The line of people waiting to get in on a Thursday night was long, but some we had a reservation, we got right in. Excellent fried chicken, and mashed potatoes and sweet tea. Food order time wad not bad. Getting a drink refill was very slow. But most important to remember is that... More

My wife and I have eaten at Puckett's Grocery, Puckett's in Leiper's Fork and Puckett's Boathouse. All have good service, good atmosphere and good food. The food is heavy and not that healthy, but what Southern comfort food is? The catfish and fried chicken are great, but all the selections that we've tried have been worth it.

We got to hear two bands throughout our Sunday night dinner, and they each played different types of music, and both were really good, but the first band especially great! We were driving in from Memphis and traffic on 40 had been at a standstill, so we were running very late. I called twice and despite a packed house, they... More

Went here on a Saturday night for dinner and music. Waiter outstanding, food great but the intimacy of sitting here listening to some local songwriters pick and sing was over the top. I can say I enjoyed it just as much, if not more than going to the Opry. And the 3 songwriters we saw have written hits for some... More

Very popular on a Saturday night. The wait was close to 2 hours but worth it. We asked if they would call when our table was close (they did) so we wandered around the immediate area and found a hidden wonder. Our waiter was fantastic who also operates his own food truck. Look for The Food Dudes!

My Family of four made reservations for Puckett's Saturday Night show. When we arrived we were told that they had put someone else at our table. There were 6-8 tables for four in the front that were empty, but we were given a table in the back. We asked why we could not sit in the front since we had... More
