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.

    server wasn't very attentive at times. Almost seemed as if we inconvenienced him when asking for something. he'd drop something off at the table then disappear for a bit. food was good and experience was okay, but server didn't really impress us much sadly.

    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.

    We eat here fairly often, made a point to head over this Friday so we could listen to the band, Tennessee Stills. Quite busy when we arrived for our 7 pm booking, but we were seated in less than 5 minutes. Food was really good as usual. We tried the fried green beans for a starter and they were just awesome, the breading was great, and served with some ranch they were perfect. Minor hiccup was my wife ordered the catfish and they were out of tartar sauce. She was okay with that (I would have sent it back); better to let people know beforehand, not when the meal is served. That really did not kill the mood though, we had a nice meal and some great music for our Friday “date night”.

    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on May 24, 2022Hi Ernest! We're so glad to have you back, as usual! We're happy to hear that you had a good evening and enjoyed the music. We are so sorry that we ran out of tartar sauce, you're absolutely right, better to let people know in advance. We'll make sure that we get the right steps in place to hopefully avoid the situation all together. Come back and see us again soon. We love having you and your family!

    the music was great, BUT we were put right next to the stage, so our party couldn't carry on a conversation amongst ourselves, and we had children in the party, and the music was too loud. The food was overcooked and rather bland and very salty. Also, although our server was quite nice, it took her a long time between checking on us, and a long time to get our food. Hint to Pucketts: a table of 8 is not there just to hear the music, so put the big parties as far away from the stage as you can when there is live music playing. There were too many small tables that were empty far away from the stage, but we were right up there next to them. Not a good place for us.

    If you’ve never been to Puckett’s Murfreesboro before you’re in for a treat. It’s a fun, family friendly place. We were disappointed by the menu changes since our last visit. Some of our favorites are no longer made. Still, you should give it a try if you’ve never been.

    We booked to eat and see the show and the put us to the side of the stage when there were a bunch of empty tables in front. Would have liked if they had asked if that was ok or if we had a preference. We couldn’t see the performers where they sat us.

    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on March 1, 2022Hi there, MelanieP! Thank you for dining with us here at Puckett's Murfreesboro. We're glad you could make it out for live music but we're sorry that you weren't sat where you would have preferred. We try to seat parties where they would be best fit while trying to maintain fairness across the servers and not overwhelm the kitchen all at once. We will pass this along to our host team for further training purposes but if you ever are not satisfied with your seating arrangement please let us know and we will try our best to rearrange. Ultimately, we want to give you the best experience that we can. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and we hope you'll come visit again soon.

    We were there for 15 minutes before our order was taken and once they did it took an hour for our breakfast to come. I know staffing can play into this but they were not even that busy. We will not be returning.
