Puckett’s Boathouse: Grill, Bar & Bait Shop
Open Daily from 11am-9pm and featuring 2 patios you’ll find a solid menu featuring catfish, salmon, shrimp, mahi, burgers and plenty of shareables! Puckett’s Boat House delivers an atmosphere that makes you nostalgic for family vacations and good times. Puckett’s achieves this through their trademark Southern fare and their reputation as a live music venue and a signature Boat House twist.
The 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. The Boathouse 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. Once a month you can experience “Uncorked,” a monthly wine-tasting series that focuses on informative topics, food pairings and all things relating to sipping and swirling.
And if you happen to stop in on a Tuesday through Saturday evening you can expect to hear great live music with a Middle Tennessee stamp while enjoying a swinging good time on Puckett’s big ole dance floor!
Check out their calendar for a list of performers throughout the week.
Blue Coast Burrito
“The Freshest, Finest, West Coast style Mexican food, or as we like to call it… ”Surf Mex!”
Open Mon-Sun from 11am-9pm, Blue Coast Burrito offers the freshest, finest West Coast-style Mexican (coined “Surf-Mex”) food available. Here you’ll find a food philosophy centered around build-your-own burritos, fresh fish tacos, from-scratch salads and much more.
As you drive north on Highway One from Cabo San Lucas you’ll come across a little stretch of white sand known as “Playa Costa Azul,” a.k.a. “Blue Coast Beach.” Here, where the Pacific meets the Gulf of California, people from all over gather to eat Baja’s famous fish tacos, listen to the rhythms of Mexico and surf some of the best waves in the world! It’s Blue Coast’s chief goal to try and bring as much of that experience as they possibly can to middle Tennessee.
Marco’s Pizza founder Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco moved to the U.S. from Italy when he was nine years old and grew up working in his family’s pizzeria. He later embarked on a mission to make high quality pizza on a larger scale using a secret sauce recipe that he developed and refined with his father.
Giammarco established three standards in order to deliver the consistent levels of quality and freshness expected of Marco’s products: dough made fresh daily in each store; a proprietary sauce recipe that blends imported spices and three types of vine-ripened tomatoes; and an exclusive blend of three fresh cheeses that are never frozen.
Marco’s founder Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco understands better than most what makes for an authentic Italian pizza. It’s not about a certain thickness of crust or a particular combination of toppings; it’s about using the best, freshest ingredients available. It’s about making something you’d be proud to serve to your mother. “In Italy, they take pride in what they serve, whether you go to a restaurant or to someone’s house. In Europe, if they don’t like your food, they’ll throw it back in your face,” says Pat.

Family, friends, good food and good times sums up Jeff Rippy’s passions in life. Wanting to be surrounded in his professional life as well as in his personal life with those 4 elements, Jeff turned a corner in his professional life. After 25 years of working for J.C. Bradford & Co. in the municipal bond department, Jeff opened Rippy’s Bar & Grill in 2000. Then in 2004 Jeff and his wife purchased the original Corner Pub in Green Hills. They eventually sold that property in 2008, but Jeff opened Corner Pub Midtown in 2006, Corner Pub Bellevue in 2007 and Corner Pub Mt Juliet in 2011. Their Franklin,TN location opened in March 2013, and following their success was a Brentwood location off of Old Hickory Blvd in 2015.

“This is food you come get after a long, hard day,” she said. “It’s simple but tasty. We have homemade bread pudding and we bake our own soda bread. Our tartar sauce sells by the pint.”
