I visited Puckett's when a friend came to visit from out of town, and hoped to experience some traditional Southern cuisine. The atmosphere was great: our waitress was friendly, there was live music, and there are an interesting array of items to see in the grocery area. As far as the food goes, it seemed to be very standard Southern food--good, but nothing that amazed me. The fried green tomatoes were good, and my fried catfish was moist and flaky. My friend's chicken fried steak was enormous, but failed to wow me--it tasted like a medium-grade steak with white gravy, which is exactly what it was. Not a bad place to visit for the atmosphere and the music, but there are other places that offer more exceptional Southern food.
I am not sure about the reviewer before me but I have been at Hillwood Playcare with my two children for six years and have had an phenomenal experience. The teachers are wonderful and the staff is caring. I have never known them to care about money so I am not sure what she means by that comment. I would highly recommend this preschool to any parent in Nashville. My oldest child was better prepared for a competitive private school in town than most of his classmates who had attended other preschools. My children loved going every day and were sad when they couldn't go. Please do not let one unhappy person taint your view of this great place. This is our last year and I will cry at the thought of not returning!
Hillwood Playcare is one of the best kept secrets in town. The faculty is outstanding and both of my children have always adored their teachers. The music and art program are such a bonus! We started at HWPC in 2009 and can't recommend it enough. This is not a school that only cares about money as the other reviewer stated. They have a couple of fundraisers a year (Fall Carnival and Spring Musical) and all money raised is to improve the school. If you are looking for a wonderful and loving environment then you should look at HWPC. This is also an excellent place for working mothers as their baby room starts at 6 weeks and they have early and late care. WE LOVE HWPC!!
