Wednesday evening so not too busy - spacious, clean, just the right amount of selections on the menu. I had just a simple salad and it was perfect but the rest of the food looked delicious. Staff friendly, helpful. Very cute decor-must be a pleasant...evening when there is music also.More

My husband and I had a good meal with a lot to look at while we waited. Fruit tea was okay (l’ve had better but sometimes this depends on the day). The service was decent with more of a chain restaurant style. Sweet potato pancakes...were yummy, I did have to ask for syrup.More

Loved Puckett’s as soon as I walked in! The place was comfortable, clean, down home- stay awhile. The food was out of this world good! From breakfast fare to bar-b-que, fried chicken and burgers everything was delicious! Bonus: small stage for live country music in...the evenings!More

Very robust & creative breakfast entrees. I ordered the Apple Jack Pancakes infused with a whiskey concoction topped by tender juicy fried chicken tenders. Who says you can’t dip BBQ sauce for breakfast! Servers are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Venue is housed in historic old...merchants store on the public square in downtown Columbia across the street from the County Courthouse.More

When we arrived shortly before 3 and the place was packed, we knew we made a great choice. My husband had the country fried steak and he said it was the best he had ever eaten. I had the wings with whiskey sauce that was...to die for. Our friend had ribs and said they were wonderful. We will definitely come back on our next trip thru.More

Really enjoyed this place. The wait staff was super friendly and attentive to details. The wings, which are smoked, then deep fried and rubbed in a dry rub, are among the best I’ve had anywhere. I might have to drive back to Columbia just to...eat at Puckett’s. The only downside: a band was playing when we first arrived and it was way way too loud for my mood ears. But that might just been me too.More

We stopped by Puckett's in Columbia on a Sunday afternoon and were seated right away. Our server was on his second day but very friendly and welcoming. We had been traveling all day and were hungry for some good Southern cooking. We ordered the Whole...Farm to share between my wife and myself. It was a nice platter full of good smoked meats with beans, greens, slaw and cornbread.. We had plenty of brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken and ribs to share and the food was delicious. We had to wait on our server to bring the check as he was dealing with a table of six nearby but that was not a big deal. We really enjoyed checking out the decor of the place and it was a very good experience. We will be back without a doubt.More

We ate dinner here on 9/25 around 6p. We walked right for a table & had no wait. We were pleasantly surprised at that. It did take awhile for our food to arrive but we weren't in a hurry and the waiter kept our water...glasses filled. All in all we weren't too bothered by the wait, we were just hungry. I ordered the MUSIC CITY HOT CHICKEN SANDWICH and my friend got the BBQ TACO SALAD with brisket as her meat choice. My sandwich was fantastic - just the right amount of heat, the chicken was so crispy. You could taste the flavor of the chicken and a separate flavor of the breading all of which were so good. fries were crispy & good too. My friend enjoyed her salad and loved the brisket. She said the dressing was good with it too. It was a sizeable dinner salad. We both agreed we would order these items again. The decor is fun & well-themed - vintage feel. We didn't stay for the live music but was there while they were "tuning up" and they sounded great. I will be back here & bring other friends!More
