Regional American (Southern)
The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember! Our philosophy is simple: Real Food, Real People, Real Fun.

    Food was horrible. Service was slow. Not worth the price. Won’t go back. Restaurant was not at capacity so service can’t be blamed on short staff.

    For the price we paid, I was very disappointed in the food. It was cold and it didn’t taste good. I’ve had Thanksgiving dinner at Puckett’s in the past when they had a buffet (Franklin) and the food was excellent. I had high hopes for this meal and was complete surprised at how bad it was. I even suggested Puckett’s to some friends of mine and they were very dissatisfied. The service was outstanding. Our waitress did everything right and we tipped her well.

    Reservations were on time, staff super friendly. The service was quick and food really good. Only disappointment was the desserts but by that time we were full so it was nothing to gripe about. Would go back definitely.

    This was our 2nd year to have Thanksgiving at Puckets. The music was way too loud. The food wasn’t worth the price. It definitely wasn’t as good as the year before. Our sever was fantastic. Will not be dinning there next Thanksgiving. Very disappointed.

    We went on a Saturday night for their live band . . which was great. The band played old time rock, which fit our generation. The food was not great. My wife's ribeye was undercooked and very fatty. She sent it back. My Memphis ribs were overcooked and very dry. We believe they are better at burgers. One other note, their Puckett's chardonnay as excellent. Overall, Puckett's is a great place for live music, brew and burgers.

    Taking those without reservations before us. We’ve been before without a reservation and wait was an hour. There’s no rhyme or reason if you really need one. We were able to get a table, but waited 15 minutes before being waited on. Food not good, this is our third time going, won’t be back.

    Out of town family wanted Southern cooking and live music. All of our menu selections were very good and the entertainment (Herrick) was spectacular. Only drawback was our table was right next to the stage so we were unable to talk to each other but the band was so good we didn’t get upset. Everyone was still raving about Puckett’s and Herrick the next day. I’ll definitely go back.

    Our waiter was amazing! It was his first day, and when he didn’t have an answer, he found out and came back. We got the farm, but they were out of ribs. They offered additional amounts of the other meat. That would have been fine, but the chicken came undercooked. They remade it and the 2nd was done well, but the first one turned my stomach and I was unable to eat any of it. The best part of the meal was the sweet potato fries. I highly recommend them.

    We’re new to the area and had hear good things about Puckets, so we decided to check it out. We intentionally went on a Saturday night for the live music. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time (made through open table) and they didn’t have us in their reservation list. Thankfully they were still able to seat us. They have a good menu selection with out of the ordinary southern platters. I order the brisket plate, but was informed they were out of brisket, so I settle for pulled pork. My husband ordered ribs and my son got a cheese burger. I will rate each menu item individually : Pork: delicious and smoke and tender Green beans: lacked flavor Collard greens: tasted with a little kick to them Fries: home cut and tasty, but a bit soggy Ribs: lots of meat on the bone Burger:m: undercooked and not very good Sweet tea: ok - a little watered down Peach cobbler: by far the best we have had - peaches were not too sweet and cobbler breading was super yummy and great texture Overall, we liked most of the food. Service was patchy…drinks took a while to get refilled and when we asked the waiter for something he seemed to wander around dong other random things before he’d bring us something we request ie) mor napkins Atmosphere was good - we’ll decorated. Live music was extremely loud & not in a good way. Next time we go to hear live music. I’ll make sure we listen to the artist first to make sure we actually like their music. No cover charge so that was nice.
