    It has a very nice bar and picnic like outdoor seating area. If you are looking for an extensive or upscale menu, this is not the place for you. Basically feature a bar menu with tacos, burgers and salads. There are about four options on there dinner menu. Service was spotty, but I think only one waiter was on duty. I had the steak tacos and my wife had the cobb salad and both were very good. The Pickett Margarita was excellent.

    Service was excellent. Ambiance was hip and place clean. Indoor music was a bit too loud for conversation. Food was delicious but mostly burgers, sandwiches, pizza--no pasta dishes or anything.

    My wife and I have enjoyed many meals at Pickett’s with friends over the past six months. We had dinner last evening with our son and he totally enjoyed himself and loved the chicken wings with honey siracha sauce, fish and chips and Cobb salad. Pickett’s has become our go to bar restaurant.

    Pickett's has become our "go to" and I find myself craving the Pickett's Margarita -- a fantastic,spicy but oh-so-smooth cocktail! I had hyped it up to a friend who's very fussy about her tequila drinks and she ordered a second! Thanks for another great meal!

    Beginning with the host who was so friendly and accommodating, then Ana at the bar was delightful. Our waitress and food was great. The only issue was the noise level. Our party of 6 hadn’t seen each other in a while and it was very hard to have conversation with all.

    Frustrating that they add a 3.5% convenience fee for paying with credit card given their prices. Comparable restaurants in area do not do this. Please take this into consideration when planning a visit. Though food was good, I’m disinclined to return when there are plentiful options in the vicinity.

    A great first dining experience at Pickett's Village Bar. We went with no expectations as we were just looking for an outdoor dining option on a Saturday night. Turned out to be a great choice and we will definitely be back. They have a nice outdoor seating area with plenty of heaters which makes a late winter/early spring dinner fairly comfortable. Cocktails were great, plenty of on-tap beer selections, pizza was excellent and there are plenty of good food options for the kids. The inside seating scene was vibrant and I'm looking forward to coming back to see live music outside once the warm weather rolls in. Our server, Osiel was great and one of the owners came out to check on us and make sure we were happy with our experience. Very relaxing evening and a nice new addition to include in our restaurant rotation.

    I saw online that they offer a gluten free beer my daughter and I like. So many restaurants and bars don’t offer Gf beer. We were very pleasantly surprised that they had a few items on the menu that are Gf too. We ordered a Gf pizza and even though I’m not a cauliflower crust fan, I have to say it was really delish! My husband enjoyed his non Gf food as well. Kind of a Sports bar atmosphere but we could actually hear each other at the table.

    We entered Picketts while wearing our masks. No employee was wearing one. We asked that our server wear one, to protect themselves, us, and other patrons. Our request was denied by the server. Then, the unmasked manager proclaimed that not only would his servers not wear masks, neither would be. We took our ( Masked) selves elsewhere.

    Holiday Gathering for a group of people with use of the Community table and Bar Area. Nick and John worked well me and helped make great choices for wine, beer and appetizers. You can tell the food is good when the guest say "Boy this shrimp is good". The decor is really nice and upscale kitchen table where guest felt comfortable as they enjoyed the amibiance of Pickett Village Bar and Grill. Other guest having dinner was a sign of "local gem" for Maplewood and the surrounding towns. Upsale kitchen table type of setting, but also a good place for a special occassion. Just enjoyable.

    Food was great! We were seated outside with coats on and with the heaters on full blast! However I think the service could’ve been better, I think indoors you get better service… We kept having to wait long periods, I think they’re doing their best under the circumstances…
