About Puckett's 5th & Church

But it's still Puckett's Grocery... nothing too fancy, but everything good. It's where the locals go for real food, real people and real fun.

Perfect Spot to Eat Before a Ryman Show
We had made reservations online and were seated promptly even though we arrived 30 minutes early. Happy Hour lasts until 6:00 p.m with $2 bucks off most drinks. Our server (Katosha) was excellent and attended to our every need. We shared the Strawberry Field Salad with feta and walnuts. We highly recommend it. Both dinners were served hot. I had the Chicken MOONSHINE PLATTER (dinner menu). The chicken was tender and the mashed sweet potatoes and steamed veggies were perfect. I would order the same meal again. The meal was served quickly and made it to the 7:30 show with time to spare. Thank you for an excellent evening and meal to remember! If you want cheap parking - try the public library parking garage! It was $8 this night.

Our table was stuck in the corner by the front door and a stack of high chairs and our waiter was nice but scarce. But the food was good and reasonably priced.

Our reservation was for 10 we arrived early but were only 8 and were seated promptly. Our table was near the bathrooms and by the kitchen which was not a very good first impression, but the location was perfect for our business dinner. It was almost as if we were in a private room with a glass window! We were able to talk across the table to everyone. Service was very good and our waiter Zander was lots of fun with great recommendations. Looking forward to going back with friends to have real fun.
Great Food, Excellent Fried Chicken
Seriously, get the southern fried chicken dinner. Ribs were great as well, but we almost ordered more chicken for dessert.

I was in town for Steeplechase with my boyfriend. I had raved to him about how good and fun Puckett's was last year when I was in town for a bachelorette, so we decided to go for dinner after the race on Saturday. The bad experience started out when I asked our waitress if she could recommend a beer comparable to a hefeweizen, and her response was "that's a dark beer, right?" - Yikes!! For a restaurant that has quite a large beer selection, how does your staff not have a good knowledge of beers? Secondly, my boyfriend ordered a Manhattan on the rocks. It came out in a martini glass. He is too nice to say anything, but he didn't enjoy sipping a martini at a country bar in Nashville. Plus, it was not what he ordered. Lastly, the food we ordered was SO cold and over-salted when it came out. It made us kinda lose our appetite immediately. We ate it, we didn't complain, we paid our bill, and we left....SO disappointed. I am sad to say that the only item on the bill worth paying that night was the $12 pp entertainment charge. The guy singing was awesome! I am just so disappointed to have spent the money we did on such an average meal. Especially on a restaurant that I was raving about beforehand.

Great atmosphere. We had a wonderful bluegrass and country group playing that night. I've been there twice and the food is always great, the service excellent and the music top notch.

We had reservations for 2 tables but we were seated at 1 table and told the table was reserved one hour later and we would have to be finished by that time. It was no problem because we were headed to TPAC . However, we were very rushed and some plates were picked up before people were finished. One of the alcoholic drinks had no alcohol . We ordered, got our food, paid and were out in less than 45 minutes.

We were early for our reservation and they sat us promptly. Even though the restaurant was packed, the service staff quickly took our orders. The food came out fast, hot and delicious. Everything was so prompt that we had time for dessert before leaving for the theater.
An out of town treat
We went to Pucketts because it was recommended by a friend. It was live music night and it was a great..the music and the food. It is quite loud but energetic
Good fun and music
The food was great, portions generous and singers were all professional and entertaining
Our server was very prompt & efficient. Food was amazing! Would definitely go back!
Glad we went!
The food is what one would expect. Filling and heavy. Good though. This ain't some buffet place. The service, however, was excellent. The hostess was able to move our reservation up an hour on 45 min. notice and our server was the perfect type of attentive. She even customized me a flight of local beers based on my like of IPA. Definately worth a stop.
one night in Nashville
We only had one night and Puckett's was recommended by another server as a good taste of Nashville. We enjoyed our date there- good food, plenty of choices, live music was really fun, service was excellent.

Food was amazing And the artist performing was great! It took about an hour to get our food and making a reservation is a must but it is worth it!
Worth the Stop!
Ate here 2 times during our Nashville TN visit. Once for breakfast and other for dinner. Both meals were delicious! The smoked pork is outstanding. Fun and comfortable atmosphere. The staff was friendly and professional. We would eat here again on a future trip to Nashville. Also enjoyed the nighttime entertainment.
Southern comfort food and hospitality. The little italian waitresses from AZ was awesome. So friendly, so nice. Couldn't ask for anyone better. The chicken fried steak and fried chicken (dark meat on the bone) was also outstanding. Just what you would expect in southern kitchens. Topped it off with the warmed cherry cobbler and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Even now to think of these items while I'm writing them, makes my mouth water. Yum.
Awesome service, food, and entertainment
Our server was ready to offer a recommendation for the popular items on the list Great music, lively place for a late dinner with friends. Servings were HUGE! You can easily share a few plates and try a bit of everything, Mac and cheese was really really good!
Very loud once band started. Food delicious but portions too big so half of it wasted. You do compost all the leftovers don't you? Service was personable and attentive. Offer smaller plates to encourage less overeating and less waste.
Live music with hot chicken
I had heard about hot chicken before this trip. I had it at Puckett's and will never forget the fire in my mouth. Not what I expected, but really good. Chicken was fresh and the hit was hot. I finished with pecan pie. Yum, yum. Then the band started. Ever seat can hear the music. Lively and energetic places. At least 3 bachelorette parties on the Friday we went. That always makes things happen. Service was able to explain things. Automatic Cover charge ($12 per person) if you are eating around 9 pm and the band is supposed to play. That part was weird.
Rock and Roll Half
Such a good experience! Came into town for the half marathon. We had made reservations but got there about an hour and a half early. They got us seated about 20 minutes later! Food was awesome! I got the moonshine chicken platter...so good!
Went to Nashville for the Rock n Roll Marathon. Ended up eating at Puckett's twice while there. Friday night the food was great so went back Sunday morning for the breakfast buffet which was amazing. Highly recommend but get reservations or be prepared to wait.

My shrimp and grits was awesome. It had a little kick. My husband had the chicken fried chicken and didn't think it was anything special. The fried pickles were more batter than pickles.

I made a reservation for 10 people and showed up with 11. Our reservation was for 9pm and we were seated by 8:45. our server, Faith, was awesome and made our visit a pleasure. I've been there before but the rest of the group had not; Puckett's made me look like a hero. Thanks
Check prices carefully
We had an unpleasant surprise when our check arrived. One wine drinker at the table ordered a glass of the house red at happy hour prices. We were shocked when we later discovered that the 1 glass of wine @$8.50 cost more than her dinner.
The bartenders here are outstanding. Though they didn't have the Pennington's Strawberry Rye Whiskey this visit, the bartender went out of their way to make me a delicious ginger beer drink.
Very nice Nashville Restaurant
My wife and I have been to Nashville 4 times and always have at least one meal here. Food is good,service great and the prices are not bad. If you can time your visit to hear the live music it's always good!
Nashville Gem-don't miss!
We had a large group with two separate reservations and the restaurant was very accommodating to combine our tables. Our group of 10 sat together, enjoyed incredible food and wonderful service! The Sausage appetizer was amazing-do not miss out on it!
Sweet cornbreaf, ugh!!!
Anyone from the South knows that cornbread is NOT sweet! Also, all the veggie had sugar added.
Absolutely delicious bbq with homemade sauces!
I was traveling through Nashville and saw this was a popular place to eat that was highly rated. This was absolutely true! The barbecue meat and homemade bbq sauces were delicious, the food portions were small enough that I had room for dessert (with inexpensive prices to match those portions), and the dessert was also freshly made and amazing! Would definitely go here again if I were back in town.

Excellent meal & music
The food is straightforward, but awesome and tremendously flavorful -- didn't have anything even approaching bland. Appetizers: fried green beans, ribs; both really good. A few of us got the hanger steak, and it was among the most flavorful pieces of meat I've ever had. One of our group had the piggy mac, and everyone tasted & loved it. The chicken and waffles was also highly praised. The live music was a wonderful side note, feeding on the Nashville vibe. Great food and great time. Will return soon!
Great venue. Enjoyed the music. The food was good and Shannon was very attentive.
