Puckett’s Boat House

A little bit of seaside heaven when you're far from the shore.

Puckett’s Boat House delivers an atmosphere that makes you nostalgic for family vacations and good times. We do this through a one-two punch of Puckett’s trademark Southern fare and reputation as a live music venue all with a signature Boat House twist.

Our grill and oyster bar menus offer wide-ranging flavors of by-the-shore dishes that are reminiscent of the Gulf coast and the Big Easy, plus Southern staples that draw from the Marshall family’s Nashville and Memphis roots. Our Boat House Wine Bar offers a carefully selected list of high class vintages and fine cigars. The wine list focuses on unique varietals and blends that are organized by weight and mouth-feel, and is designed to guide guests by their taste buds rather than preconceived notions.

And if you’re here Tuesday through Saturday evening, expect to hear great live music with a Middle Tennessee stamp. We guarantee a swinging good time on our big ole dance floor! Check out our calendar for a list of performers throughout the week.
Housed in Franklin’s old Boat Locker at 94 E. Main Street, the Boat House is an A. Marshall Hospitality Inc. restaurant, and is downtown Franklin’s only Gulf-centric eatery.

Our mission is to deliver down-home dishes with a seafood spin, featuring only the highest quality local and regional ingredients.
