New Gluten-Free Alternatives At Puckett’s Boat House

The number of people with food allergies seems to be on the rise, and we’ve noticed more and more of our customers are requesting wheat-free dishes. In response, Puckett’s Boat House has added several inexpensive options for y’all with celiac disease and wheat allergies.

We’re offering tasty signature Cajun dishes such as the mojo wings tossed in a choice of hot, mild or honey jalapeño sauce, a hand-cut Sanibel salmon fillet and grilled grouper. Other items that were already incorporated into the Boat House menu include the BBQ shrimp & grits, as well as a variety of the specialty salads.

Those with celiac can also enjoy many of our side items, including rice pilaf, creamed spinach, chipotle-cheese grits, sautéed vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes and coleslaw.

And don’t think we forgot dessert! We’ve also added a gluten free chocolate mousse pie that replaces a traditional flour crust with one comprised of pecans and dates, and is lightly sweetened with agave nectar.

We understand how hard it can be dining out with a food allergy, and we hope these additions to our menu will allow us to form new relationships with those who have struggled to eat out in the past.

Puckett’s Boat House is located at 94 E. Main Street in downtown Franklin, Tenn.

Homestead Manor: A Magical Place

Homestead Manor -1

On March 5, 1863, the Battle of Thompson’s Station raged around a sweeping 50-acre property and one Williamson County plantation home.

In spring 2013, Homestead Manor commemorated 150 years since the skirmish with its grand re-opening of the beautiful home–which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the property has a conservation easement through The Land Trust of Tennessee. {want to know more about the history? click here}

Built by the Giddens family between 1809 and 1816 the home sits as a preserved oasis surrounded by 47-acres of lush green grass, mature trees with hanging branches that shade the property and gentle hills that define the horizon. There’s sweeping versatility when it comes to Homestead Manor–it’s a newly renovated space that can serve as a private venue for community and corporate events, weddings and oh so much more.

But that’s not why we’re writing today–because, well, it must be your lucky day!

Homestead Manor Plantation is offering a limited spring special through February 15: receive $1,000 off venue rental for Saturday bookings and/or $500 off venue rental for weekday bookings for events in February and April 2014. 

We know, right? Too good to be true! If you’re interested in this (fabulous, as Ms. Dolly Parton would say!) deal, just email Laurie here. To see standard rental rates, head here.
