We walked around Franklin and knew that Puckett’s would be a great option. Everything we ordered was excellent and came out hot and full of flavor. The fried green beans were especially good!

Great atmosphere, but all of our food was super salty. We had fried green beans, fried pickles, country fried chicken, and the catfish. Every one said the food was salty. Even the ranch dressing was extra salty. Entertainment made it bearable for us, but would...not recommend if you want to dine on good food. The food did not match the pictures shown here either, it's a sad representation of our wonder southern food.More

Nice extensive menu and servers very friendly. Food a little bit average but ok for price. Looks like it may be better to visit later in evening when there is music on as I suspect it will have a good atmosphere.

Excellent food, service and entertainment. I had the smoked meatloaf and it was incredible. My husband had the baby back ribs and really enjoyed them. We also liked the fried green bean appetizer. Our waitress was very attentive. The live entertainment was excellent. I highly...recommend this place.More

Like a lot of our adventures, we seem to arrive later in the evening to eat dinner because we have been out doing things all day. We actually thought Puckett’s was located in Leiper’s Fork, but it has since relocated to downtown Franklin. It’s a...great place to have a drink and listen to some music. In fact, I think just about every restaurant we went to in and around Nashville has live music in the city that invented country music. A great historic place and building and wonderful open seating area like the old country store. Come and rest here on your gallop around downtown Franklin.More

We had lunch on 4/23/22. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The server was friendly. Our order came out with the wrong sides but she corrected the mistake quickly. Shared the farm and was plenty of food for two adults. Food was delivered...hot and very good.More

The meal was a total disappointment. Processed FOOD which you could have purchased at Krogers & saved yourself $20.00 . Puckett's Gro. & Restaurant is a Deception ! Simply Fact - It is NOT good food...

I have been eating at Puckett’s in Franklin since it first opened and used to send folks here all of the time. Sadly, the quality of the food is not what it once was. I will still visit to hear some live music and possibly...enjoy a dessert, but tonight’s Piggy Mac was disappointing; watery macaroni & cheese with fatty brisket. No thank you.More

So when we have visitors we always take them to Pucketts. Now we fing when looking for a restaurant they want to go back to Pucketts. 3 days straight of lunch and dinner at Pucketts has become the norm for our visitors. No complaints from...us either. We could eat there every day of the year. We are going to try splitting time between Pucketts and their new Americana Tap HouseMore

I had the strawberry salad and it was very good. I had the honey mustard dressing on it and it was delicious!! I did leave off the blue cheese crumbles because I don't care for blue cheese.

Had dinner here while in town one Friday night a while back. Restaurant was very busy but the staff was super-efficient with the wait list and we got a table in a fraction of the quoted wait time. Food was great - they're apparently known...for their fried chicken, and the 'hot chicken' did not disappoint. Drink menu was good, my one gripe would be that the liquor in some of the drink specials tasted as if it was from they very bottom shelf. But you can always fix that by asking to sub in something higher-end. They had live music while we were there, which I'm guessing is a regular Friday night thing. I'm usually not a big fan of live music in bars and restaurants, as it's often some no-talent hack screaming into a jacked up amp, but the musicians they had here were fantastic. Will definitely be back.More

This is a great little simple restaurant joint. The waitress was awesome and caring. I got the Nashville Cheesesteak and this makes the Philadelphia Cheesesteak to shame; to shame I said. The bathrooms were nice,clean and stocked with TP! No worries about getting Sea Bassed!
