We had the Mahi-Mahi blackened. Had Cole slaw and Rice. Calamari and fried pickles. Food was good, prices reasonable.

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

Took 18 friends here after a Carnton House visit. Sat in the wine bar and it was perfect. Food came out quickly if drinks were a little slow.

Seems they've increased prices, reduced quantity. Quality is still good but surprised this last visit that we paid $19 for our entree of 6shrimp, "1" hush puppy :( a spoonful of veggies that were awesome and some gunmy rice. Did not care for that at all. I wish I had asked for just a plate of 12 shrimp! Not sure... More

I have been to Puckett's Boat House a number of times, and always enjoy the food - particularly the oyster bar.

We were totally disappointed with our latest visit to this restaurant. First - in the bar the drinks were watered down, small, and expensive. The bartender was non-attentive. All of our food for the four of us was cold and just mediocre. But when it came time for the bill - what a nightmare! The waitress messed up the bill... More

Had the Mahi Mahi and it was fresh but lacked seasoning. This place used to be one of our favs. But lately they have lost consistency. My potatoes were ok. Broccoli was good. They have changed their grits and now they just are not good. We went after the lunch crowd so seating was easy to get. Spending $40.00 for... More

We attended a family wedding rehearsal dinner at Puckett's and it was an awesome affair. Staff were all so friendly and I had the best fried chicken ever. I couldn't stop talking about it. Well not really,I stopped talking many times to enjoy more and more of that wonderful chicken. Fun and friendly atmosphere.
