Have been to the Boathouse multiple times. Never had a bad item from their menu. Love the fried pickles. They are a must try. There was a musician there that night providing just enough back ground music to be pleasant and not overbearing.

Well for a appetizer we order the spinach dip. Absolutely delicious , but all down hill from there. We ordered one plate of chicken tenders... More

We have hosted our company Christmas dinner here for the past two years and it's been great. They have a nice private room upstairs that can be rented out for buffet dinners. Our employees have really enjoyed it and it works out perfectly. They allow us to a do a little bit of our own decorating and provide our own... More

I expected to be very impressed by Puckett's, due to numerous recommendations. It was just average...the drinks and the food.

Puckett's is a well-known restaurant name in the greater Nashville area. We were here for lunch and very impressed with all the seafood selections. We live in coastal Maryland and are pretty fussy about our seafood since we have lots of fresh, local choices. Everything was good - sandwiches, shrimp po-boys, and the catfish and grits. Service was friendly and... More

I would recommend reservations for dinner! Service is great. Nice menu with lots of choices. My husband had the fried oyster platter and I had the shrimp and grits -- both were delicious. Most weekend nights there is a band -- so if you plan on eating a little later you can enjoy the entertainment. Not a fancy restaurant but... More

Margaret had this all planned out for us. She researched a bunch of restaurants and Puckett's floated up to the top for our last night here. This is not an elegant place. Just a simple looking restaurant by the river that had enough entrees to make choosing difficult. In the end, Margaret picked the bucket of seafood when helpful Luis... More
