Puckett’s Columbia & Puckett’s Boat House Will Donate Daily Proceeds to Three Local Organizations

Puckett's spirit


‘Tis the season y’all, and Puckett’s is feeling the love!

Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Columbia and Puckett’s Boat House in downtown Franklin recently launched their “Community Tuesday” initiatives, a three-part series that donates 10 percent of both restaurant’s daily sales on Dec. 3, 10 and 17 to local organizations.

Through hearty appetites at Puckett’s Boat House, the public supported the Harpeth River Watershed Association on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The remaining  “Community Tuesday” proceeds will go to GraceWorks Ministries on Tuesday, Dec. 10, and New Hope Academy on Tuesday, Dec. 17. This is the second year the Boat House has coordinated the philanthropic effort.

{pssssst: Also in December, the Boat House will be encouraging friends to donate dollars to its ceiling as part of our “Puckett’s Dollar For Your Thoughts” initiative. Since February, the restaurant has allowed guests to stick dollar bills—with their own custom messages—to our low-ceiling beams. At the end of the month, all of the money pinned will be counted and donated to The Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County!}

At Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Columbia, the public supported the Family Center of Columbia on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The remaining  “Community Tuesday” proceeds will go to Columbia Central’s Project Graduation on Tuesday, Dec. 10, and The Boys and Girls Club of Maury County on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Because we opened in March 2013, this is the first time we’ve been able to do something like this — and our family is more than excited to share in the giving season!

Here’s what our owner, Andy, has to say about it: “We’ve wanted to host something like this since we opened, and the holidays are a nice tie-in. We’re sharing the love between these three because we connect with each of their individual visions, and we believe our customers do too. The fact that there are so many admired organizations with respected causes in Maury County shows the kind of heart this community has.”

So come out Tuesdays in December to support local! For more information on the events, check out the Boat House Facebook page HERE, or Columbia’s Facebook page HERE.

Puckett’s Offering Holiday Meals + [Franklin & Nashville] Open For Thanksgiving


Our family of restaurants in Davidson, Williamson and Maury counties is helping alleviate the stress of holiday cooking by providing extensive to-go meal options at each of the Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House locations!

Now, you know that our friends can expect the same made-from-scratch dishes from the packed-to-go dinners that they find at our eateries, and offerings reflect the restaurant’s well-loved specialties; for example, the Boat House has created a variety of items to reflect its seafood menu, from seafood lasagna and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese to oyster dressing and chicken & sausage jambalaya—not to mention a smattering of desserts from its bakery.

And at Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant locations, the exclusive holiday to-go meat options include a choice of roasted, smoked or fried turkey, smoked ham, juicy beef tenderloin, baby back ribs and cherry-smoked pulled pork.

The Southern-style sides read like a “best of” Puckett’s offerings: cornbread stuffing, green beans, creamed corn, squash casserole, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, yeast rolls and more will make our guests feel like they are in the center of the country store. Rounding out the feast are Puckett’s decadent desserts, including Southern specialties like pumpkin pie and homemade cobblers.

Andy Marshall said that many of the featured classics are family recipes that have been handed down over the years.

“For a lot of people, nostalgic Thanksgiving memories are tied to the spread on the table. It’s the same with our family: most of these dishes on the menu have been passed around our table at home for years, and we’re proud to share those experiences with others,” Andy says.

“We’ve been offering our ‘turkey with all the trimmings’ dinner since our first season with Puckett’s, and have found that people appreciate spending less time in the kitchen and more time with the family.”

The varying meal packages are able to feed from six people to 26 guests. Visit the Puckett’s Boat House here and Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant website here for order forms and to-go dinner pricing.

Coffee, Country & Cody Live at Puckett’s Nashville Oct. 9 + Puckett’s Offers a Bit of Shutdown Relief

Tensions are runnin’ high these days. Many government workers have been shut out from their jobs due to the shutdown… and it’s not just those D.C. folks who are struggling. Right here in Middle Tennessee, there are many who have had their paychecks suspended because of what’s happening with Congress.

So Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and the dudes at WSM 650 (hey, Bill Cody and Charlie Mattos!) put our heads together, and asked ourselves: how can we do our small part for those affected? Here’s what we came up with:

Puckett’s is offering federal employees a $6.50 discount on their meals this Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 7 a.m. ’til our breakfast ends at 11 a.m. The special applies to all individuals who show us their Federal ID, and is happening at our locations in downtown Nashville, downtown Franklin and downtown Columbia, Tenn.

Plus, Bill Cody and Charlie Mattos will be broadcasting live from Puckett’s 5th & Church in Nashville–a great chance to meet your favorite broadcast personalities! Y’all make sure and come down to see ’em.

Again, how it works: Federal employees simply have to show their Federal ID at any of the three Puckett’s locations (Nashville, Franklin, and Columbia) and you’ll get a $6.50 discount on your ticket! All three Puckett’s locations will offer the discount on Wednesday, October 9 from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m.
