Papa Turney's BBQ Grill Polaroids Nashville TN

Old Fashioned Hickory Smoked BBQ

Papa Turney’s BBQ is a family-owned and operated restaurant and venue located on the marina in beautiful Nashville Shores on Percy Priest Lake.

Come and visit us to see what all the buzz is about! We are just 12 minutes outside of Nashville, TN, and are a popular destination for the locals as well as those passing through the area. We'd love to meet you - our customers are like family to us.

Great food doesn’t just happen overnight. It starts with a dream then passion takes over. I started with my first passion in music over 45 years ago. Then came the passion for my Mama’s sweets with her pies. Followed by my passion for BBQ. The love we have for all 3 has come together under one roof for me to share with y’all. If you haven’t had an opportunity to come be a part of Papa Turney’s family you should, You won’t wanna be anywhere else.
