Welcome to Puckett’s! Founded in the fifties, people have been congregating at Puckett’s for over a half a century. We’ve updated a bit, added some recipes from our family and friends, and thrown in some great live music. But it’s still Puckett’s Grocery... nothing too fancy,but everything good. It’s where the locals go for real food, real people and real fun.Consider Puckett’s for private party rentals and catering needs.

If you say you can sit at the bar to eat if you fnd a space then honour it

When told I could sit at the bar to eat if there was space, I sat down only to be aggressively asked by the girl behind the bar if I had a reservation. I explained I hadn't but had been told at the door I could sit there. She returned to say I couldn't as there were reservations. So I... read more

After one visit, that's enough for me. I don't know if it was just an off day for them or what, but the food was terrible. I complained soon after getting my food but the waiter didn't seem interested in fact my food was not good. I will never go back again.

Looking at homes to buy the day after the worst ice storm to hit the area in 21 years left us both overwhelmed and tired. It was our last night in Franklin and when our 11 yr.old and 9 yr. old wouldn't stop fighting, I said, put your coats on, we are going to dinner! 55 South was just closing,... More

We have only eaten here a few times. expensive for what it is, but good food. The tourists love this place and be prepared to wait. Around here you have to be good to make it. So check out all our local places.

My wife, Dad and I recently visited Puckett's (Downtown Franklin) for breakfast. There was a good crowd there and we had to wait about 30minutes to be seated. I ordered the fried pork tenderloin and eggs. The order took a little longer than I thought but there was a large crowd so no big deal. All of our meals were... More

Puckett's offers a great meat & 3 for those who like country cooking. It's a place where macaroni and cheese is a vegetable! They also make very good hamburgers and salads. Something for everyone. In the evening, they have live entertainment with dinner. Check with them for details. Had lunch one day with Alan Jackson sitting at the next table.... More

You will enjoy the ambience and the fried chicken and shrimp and grits! Always very busy but at meal time expect to wait.

The food is great and staff is friendly and helpful. Barbecue, burgers, chicken and fish are among mr favorites. But don't forget the cobblers for dessert. Beyond the food this is a great place to hear music from songwriters and performers who have not made the big time - but are very talented nonetheless. Some nights have no door charge.... More
