This place reminds us of the beachfront seafood restaurants we enjoy along 30A, combined with the live music that really is the signature of Franklin. Favorite recommendations include the blue crab salad, the white cheddar whiskey grits, the salmon burger, and the key lime pie....More

Eat here often and like the food but the chairs are very uncomfortable. Don't care much for the fries but the soup is always good

Not the original Puckett’s but has a nice atmosphere and nice patio seating. Quiet during the week and crowded on the weekend. Good food and close to downtown.

Service was great! Food was so good that I hurt myself. I had the special which was the ribeye with shrimp. My husband had bbq shrimp and grits and a Ceasar salad. Prices seem a bit high until you taste the food!

A casual primarily seafood restaurant ,plenty of tables, good waitstaff and bar area, family friendly. Grate for oysters on the half shell, and a cool beer to wash them down. Parking can be difficult.

Let’s hit the highlights first: Catfish filets—good; Hush puppies—-really good; Grits—-cooked perfectly; honey cilantro salad dressing—— a delicious must Now the detriments... the sauce on the BBQ Shrimp contained more salt than the Dead Sea.

I really enjoy the atmosphere and location. The beer menu is good. I am not impressed with the food. I've been there twice for dinner. The food wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good either. There are many other nearby restaurants with better quality food. I...More
