Puckett's 5th & Church Ratings and Reviews
Every year I visit Nashville and I ways ...
Every year I visit Nashville and I ways make sure I make a reservation during my trip for dinner at Puckett's. I love the ribs. This year I did feel that the potato salad was a bit dry and not as favorable as in the past and the Mac and Cheese was over done - so I was a little disappointed. But I will go back again next year and hope for better since in the past it has always been excellent.

Our waitress was great, but the hostess was very rude. We had a reservation, and had to wait about 20 extra minutes for a table. When I asked the hostess how much longer it would be, she replied with "I don't know", and looked the other way. Then I asked if we could have the open table in the corner and she said "No, that's a reservation". We should have been treated with the same respect as any other customer with a reservation. When we finally sat down, we ordered fried pickles. They came out before our tea even made it to the table. They were cold, and we had to send them back. We loved our server but the overall experience was not great due to the rude hostess and poor fried pickles. It was my mom and grandmas first time there, so she's not sure if she would come back. I appreciate you reading this !

Visited Puckett's 5th & Church while vacationing in Nashville. Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. The Shrimp & Grits are wonderful! The service was also excellent. It's a bit noisy which adds to the atmosphere.

Loved this place!!! We went as a surprise for my husband on Father's Day. He thoroughly enjoyed the blues music, the food, and the overall atmosphere. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and she took the time to explain the restaurant concept and various menu items. Her menu suggestions were on point and everyone enjoyed their entrees. Will definitely return for future visits and recommend to friends.

Location was great in downtown area. Food was very good. Service was a bit challenged. Went for dinner and my husband never got his salad (after reminding 2 waiters) then went back the next morning for breakfast and again he didn't get the gravy that was supposed to come with his breakfast platter. Had to ask for it again. Would still recommend this restaurant for location and food!!

The food was the best that we'd had while in Nashville. Our waitress was amazing. She made recommendations and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted. I've never had a waitress that made legitimate recommendations and was so attentive/ friendly. We will definitely go back everytime were in Nashville

Service was beyond excellent. Every employee was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Food was good but wasn't o early impressive for the price. There was a live band, but the level was so oppressively loud that we couldn't even hear our server when she came to take our order. I understand that it's a live-music venue.... But it's also a place to have dinner. I feel like there could have been a happy medium -- something between quiet and deafening.

We made reservations which was the best idea. There was a line out the door and we walked in and said that we had reservations at 5:30pm and the hostess grabbed 2 menus and walked us right to a table! MAKE RESERVATIONS!! The BBQ was wonderful. They had a band setting up and they were really good. It can be kid friendly, I think, up to a certain time due to language of the band. We had a great time and would go back again!

Great, even during busy CMA week.
Fortunately I made reservations well in advance because they were booked all weekend when we considered changing the time. There were many things on the menu that we wanted to try, so we'll be back another time. We went with another couple who was also very impressed. Vanessa was the waitress that did an outstanding job for us. Very thorough, friendly and professional, despite being VERY busy.
Puckett's was AMAZING!!!! One of our very favorite places to eat in Nashville.

What a wonderful Nashville experience! We were very lucky to have made a reservation since the place was packed and we ended up at a table right beside the stage. Sure, with a live band, it wasn't suitable for conversation. But the pork chop and ribs were outstanding and our server was extremely helpful with local beer and whiskey recommendations. We'll gladly come back.

Southern cooking in a great spot
Fried chicken or catfish. Sweet Potato Fries. Meat and three! And all of this in a busy and diverse setting. Great people watching - from tourists in shorts and cowboy boots to House members coming down from the Hill in 3 piece suits. Service has always been very fast and nice
Where's the Beef?
While visiting Nashville for a couple of days my wife and I wanted to try the Puckett's for its notable "southern" cuisine. We were seated shortly after our arrival; (we had reservations and suggest that you do as well); and service was quick and friendly. Our appetizers of fried green tomatoes and their special ribs met our expectations and was consistent with Puckett's reputation. Unfortunately, with the serving of our entrees, the shine wore off the star. My wife's catfish was fine, but certainly not noteworthy, and the portion robust; but my patty melt (one of my favorite meals), fell materially short. All I could think of was the old Wendy's ad where the old lady poignantly remarks "where's the beef". The patty, at best, filled 1/3 of the rye bread and the caramelized onions were few and far between. A major disappointment. We decided not to stick around for dessert. There are too many good places on Broadway to get great ice cream. I do not think that because Puckett's fell short on my choice means that it is an unworthy restaurant. I think what it means is that you need to stay away from ordering burgers there and stay with the fried fare and ribs. I think you will be much more satisfied.

BEST FOOD IN TOWN!! Amazing BBQ. Pulled pork was the best of any restaurant I've tried in Nashville!!! And the smoked chicken was killer!!! Waitress was super nice super friendly and she knew her stuff. I will definitely be back.
Great Southern Food in the Heart of Nashville
I took the wife and kids here for a good downtown meal before a show at TPAC. Our server was incredibly friendly and really made the meal that much more enjoyable. The food was great. I had the smoked half chicken (crispy skin, bonus!) and my wife had the hanger steak. The chicken was excellent, but one bite of my wife's steak and I regretted my decision. The steak was fantastic. My only complain was the noise level. It's a fairly noisy place to begin with, but we were seated next to a bachelorette party, so it was especially so. All in all a great experience. I'll be back again.
The food was amazing! Every plate we ordered in the large group had no complaints. The alcoholic drinks were also very tasty! I wish I lived in Nashville because I would be visiting this place frequently!
Great Music and Food
This place was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Fortunately, we had reservations, so was able to walk right in and was sat immediately. I would highly recommend reservations! The food tasted wonderful and the live music was fabulous. I was with friends on a business trip and so I hope to take my wife soon to this wonderful establishment.

Another great night at Pucketts! The BBQ sampler was the special - the smoker was right behind the bar - that's pretty cool. The band was good - and played originals and some requests.

Another great night of music and food here. We had a great table in front of the stage. The band- Blair's West were a husband and wife duo- terrific talent and voices. They played for tips and played requests too. I had the Mojo burger- burger with pulled pork- really tasty and filled me up. Can't wait to go back!

Group we went to hear- On Call- excellent.
Enjoyed our Fried Green Tomatoes and brisket nachos for appetizers. Tried a Moonshine Martini and it was uber sweet but went down smoothly. Extensive whiskey menu. I had the baby backs and my husband had the fried chicken (worth the extra wait!!!!). Both were outstanding. Comes with sides. This is the place to go if you want to experience real Southern Cookin'

WE had 4 couples visiting from out of town so we wanted them to get some local flavor with a Nashville owned restaurant. We had a great table for 10 in a semi private area of the restaurant so we could all talk. Our waitress took great care of us and everything was efficient and delicious. She also took the time to separate checks! Great place for a pre-concert meal at the Ascend Amphitheater.

Food is always SO GOOD. Best barbecue in Nashville. 👌🏼
Being from Australia we asked some locals where was good. Several recommend Pucketts. You defiantly need to reserve a table at least the morning of the evening you intend on going as we missed out the first night we just showed up. The food was amazing! Had a home cooked meal feel to it which good when you've been traveling for weeks. The service was also awesome! Quick to the table, I ordered what our server suggested and some desert! The servings were huge! My mate and I could have easily shared a main and desert and been satisfied. I believe they have live entertainment every night which got a little loud at times but you can request a table further from the stage. All in all i highly recommend Pucketts. Awesome food, amazing vibe and delightful entertainment. Ps. Get the chicken fried chicken and chocolate chess pie!!
