    The outdoor area is spacious and set up well. The service was terrible which was a shame because the food was very good. I ordered a gluten free pizza that came to the table with a regular crust. I couldn’t complain because the server never came back even though we asked the hostess for her multiple times. Even a glass of water took three requests. They also had a band playing which would have been nice to know about before I made the reservation. It was hard to really enjoy our time out because we couldn’t hear each other or get anything to eat or drink for the 2 hours we were there.

    We had a great time. Very accommodating and extremely family friendly, which is a huge plus when dining with an infant and a toddler. The outdoor seating was a plus.

    Someone took a picture of myself and my girlfriend as we sat at a booth next to the window. We alerted the staff and they called the police on that guy.

    The food is excellent. Great selection of draft beers. Service was a little slow as far as getting someone to take our order and for the drinks/food to arrive. Not sure why as it wasn't that crowded. However, servers and staff were all very friendly. And it was worth it as the food was so good.

    I paid 44$ for a basic glass of Cohn Merlot. I am SHOCKED that this is the glass that the server chose when I asked for a dry wine. I'm not one to complain but I am one to use these things as a learning lesson. I am disappointed that this is how the restaurant chose to take advantage of me. The food is fine otherwise.

    Enjoy Picketts as a normal go to. Ordered two burgers this past time both medium. One came back raw and one was perfectly cooked. Not sure how that was possible, but something was up with the kitchen. I’ll give them the benefit

    We have enjoyed going to Pickett’s over the past couple of years so were excited to introduce our friends to the restaurant this weekend. While the food was very good, as usual, the service was terrible (as I’ve said in a previous review, I have felt this to be a weak link). Our four entrees came out at different times, and in fact we had to ask for the fourth. Once served, our wait person dropped us like a hot potato. We had to flag down other servers for things like ketchup for the fries which came on one burger plate but not the other. The coup de grace was that the credit card machine was down and we had to scrounge for cash to pay our bill (ok it happens and it was raining). I’m sure our friends will not go back but I’m hoping they get their act together so we can return to what has been one of our go-tos since moving to Maplewood.

    Great cocktails (try the margarita), neighborhood vibe, good times. Grab a picnic table out by the creek with a bit of a view of the golf course. Great fish tacos. Also don't miss the Buffalo Cauli as an app.

    Food was very good except for my wife's califlower which she found inedible. Servers were very nice and helpful. My main problem is how dramatically over priced this place is for what is basically pub food. Twenty dollars for a burger and fries, 24 for pasta and meat sauce. That's a pretty big rip off.

    We really enjoyed our meal. Service was great. Steak tacos were delicious. The steak was tender and well marinated. My son had the buffalo wings and said they were the best he’s ever had. The guacamole was yummy and fresh! Will certainly return.

    Our first visit to Pickett's. Excellent service from the Hostess, Waiter and all employees I encountered. I t was a hot night outside, so we ordered salads -- the caesar with grilled chicken and cobb -- both were very, very good. My wine was excellent. The entertainment was great. We'll be back.

    Took a 7:30pm reservation and as they are seating us tell us kitchen closes at 8pm; we need to get our order in quickly. If you can’t provide your normal dining experience then don’t take the reservation. Restaurant was 3/4 full and they were rushing to close. Dimmed lights to make sure everyone get the hint. Two of our four dishes came out then after some minutes a third then after another five minutes the forth. Service was pretty abysmal. Food was just ok.
