Puckett's Boat House in downtown Franklin will formally become American Taphouse Jan. 29 following a brief renovation and rebranding. The eatery, owned by A. Marshall Hospitality, is located at 94. E. Main St., Franklin.

A. Marshall Hospitality CEO Andy Marshall said the concept brings a fresh, new option to downtown Franklin.

“Our location on Main Street gives us the opportunity to cross paths with both Franklin residents and many visitors whose feedback means a lot to us,” Marshall said in a statement. “We’re thankful for the tremendous support of Puckett’s Boat House over the last eight years, and we’re eager to introduce a new, comfortable place to the downtown dining scene, where all ages can spend time together over great food and great beer.”

Americana Taphouse will feature 24 rotating beer taps with craft and local options, as well as Puckett's Brew, a helles-style lager made for the eatery by Blackstone Brewing.

The menu will feature Southern fare, such as chicken and waffles with fig honey jam and slow-cooked pot roast and grits.

A launch party for the eatery will be held Jan. 30 at 5 p.m. and is open to the public. Reservations for the event are recommended and can be made by calling 615-790-2309.
