The food here was not bad but nothing exceptional either. I tried the fried green tomatoes and the catfish. They were good but I would not go out of my way to have them again. I had a mixed drink that was very disappointing. It was not good at all. In fairness, it was some kind of specialty drink that... More

Nice night out. They routinely have live music which we heard and enjoyed. Food was good, but not over the top. Priced right for what you get. Overall well go again. Better than any chain restaurant for sure.

Couldn't wait for some good Sea Food! Disappointed with food overall. My onion rings were soaked in oil...turn up the heat on that fryer! My shrimp was ok, but nothing to go back for. My wife's Cat fish had that dark membrane on part of it that should be trimmed off...this is where that fishy muddy taste will be! We... More

The four of us tried different entrees and they were all tasty and plentiful. The wait staff were prompt, courteous and friendly. Don't miss this downtown Franklin eatery!

Living along the gulf coast and having traveled to the North East and West, I know how seafood should be. Puckett's hit the bulls eye with not only the prices but the quality of their seafood. The fried shrimp and oysters were cooked correctly as was the catfish. I'd preferred a corn meal batter on the oysters but the light... More

Every time we go is wonderful! Never had a bad experience. The rusty bucket is great if you want to share plenty of food for two! Definitely try the shrimp grits hush puppies and leave room for dessert! Our favorite the hummingbird cake but we also like the key lime pie! Live music on Saturday until 9 great local talent.

Great place to take a break for a relaking dinner. Try the Rusty Bucket or catfish strips and you won't go wrong.

This was our first time at Puckett's Boat House, and we enjoyed the casual, friendly atmosphere. It was a relatively cool summer evening, so we ate outside on the patio. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We both ordered the Blackened Catfish and Grits as its menu description made it sound delightful. The food was very hot, which wasn't too... More
