Puckett’s Boat House Celebrates Return of Predators with Catfish Fry


Puckett’s Boat House will kick off the Nashville Predators’ regular season in true fan fashion, hosting a Catfish Fry from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. during the team’s first game against the New York Rangers on Thursday, October 4.

The game begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcasted on an outdoor projector as guests enjoy an all-you-can-eat catfish fry and Little Harpeth Chicken Scratch draft beer for $3 each. A $1 raw oyster happy hour will be available during the third period.

Puckett’s Boat House will donate a portion of the event’s proceeds to Harpeth Conservancy, an organization that uses science-based conservation to promote clean water and healthy ecosystems for rivers in Tennessee. Claire Crowell, COO of A. Marshall Hospitality, said that this initiative supports the restaurant’s overall sustainability campaign.

“Puckett’s Boat House is located on a beautiful spot along the Harpeth River, and we recognize our responsibility to consistently expand our efforts to be environmentally conscious,” Crowell said. “In doing so, we contribute to the important cause of preserving and protecting the incredible natural resources around us, both throughout Middle Tennessee and in our very own backyard.”

The restaurant has already installed many sustainability efforts, including serving straws by request only, recycling cardboard where available, offering compostable and recyclable to go cups and lids, practicing paper recycling in the administrative office and more.

“We appreciate Puckett’s Boat House and A. Marshall Hospitality for stepping up as leaders in the conservation and environmental awareness space and look forward to more opportunities to work together toward our mutual goals,” said Haylee Hall, Harpeth Conservancy Development Director. 

Harpeth Conservancy recently released “Don’t be Crappie, Be River Responsible” merchandise, which will be available to purchase at the Catfish Fry. Guests can talk with Harpeth Conservancy representatives and learn more about how to support their cause.

Tickets to the Catfish Fry are available now via Eventbrite and are $19.95 for adults online and $25 at the door. Children 12 & under are $9.95, and kids under the age of 5 eat for free. Learn more at www.facebook.com/puckettsboathouse.
