“Great for small children”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you have small children go to Puckett's Boat House. We visited without children and could barely have a conversation because children were running wild throughout the restaurant. The food was average, not Franklin's best seafood option.

“Its OK if you have a light appetite, but great entertainment.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Been to the restaurant twice once when it opened up and once last week. Was not impressed the first time and did not change my mind the 2nd time. There is quite a variety on the menu, and the prices look reasonable, until you get the meal and you realize you are basically getting half-size portions. The seafood - shrimp - is slightly above Captain D's quality, and does not come near to any place on the Gulf. The last time I wnet there I paid $18 for a Steak that was about Golden Corral quality - with a lot of grizzle. The atmosphere is great, however, as they have great acoustic entertainmnet, but if you want to "see" it you need to reserve a table as the entire downstairs gets "reserved" and you will not be able to get a table there. I would recommmend this place for light appetizers and drinks while watching entertainment, definetly not the place to have a main meal, unless you are trying to lose weight.

“Don't see what the fuss is about”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We heard that the boat house was a good place, and maybe it would have been had we sat inside with the music. The inside had a Joe's Crab Shack feel. The outdoor patio was very nice, but the food was average and the drinks were watered down. I am not rushing back anytime soon.

“Good food, busy spot”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

While we enjoyed our meal, there is little room for people to wait for a table so consequently they queue up in the dining area. My spouse enjoyed his chicken jambalya stating it was great. I had the shrimp and grits, which had a good flavor but I would prefer a bit less sauce. Live music began at 7:30 so we did have an opportunity to enjoy that during our dinner. If in Franklin, we would stop here again.

“Very good!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

The tacos were great! The coconut shrimp wasn't very coconutty. Bloody Mary was very good! Great atmosphere. Would definitely go again.
