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.

Met a friend for cocktails and sat at the bar. Yes, the bar. Food is great here and the drinks are too. Service was pretty quick even having a large group (20+ people) in attendance. Bartenders are very attentive and friendly. I will stop I again.

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.

We love this place. Ambiance is casual and nice kind of rustic feel. Service is quick and friendly with local kids doing it. Food is great - they keep it simple but do it well. And, a great beer selection.

Highly recommend! We enjoyed the outside seating (both covered and "open" options, but inside is great, too).

This is a great place to go with either family or friends. Ample outdoor seating, backs up against the Maplewood golf course and a little creek giving you a nice view. Service was good, not rushed, pretty average. Food and drinks were both tasty. There is no on-site parking as they are using the lot for extra outdoor seating but free street parking is available.

We had an early flight out of Newark and decided to find a local restaurant not to far from the Newark Marriott. It was about a 15 minute drive. It didn't disappoint. Great NJPizza and the Buffalo cauliflower was good too.

We absolutely loved it! The patio was lovely, with a nice view of the creek. There was live music playing and it felt very lively. Great service, delicious food, and very family friendly.

So sad the service was so bad... When its my suggestion to go to Picketts, I always hope things go well. Food was good, but service was so so off the mark!! We also had an eye roll from one of the servers when my friend asked if they could please remove the overabundance of mustard on her burger, which was completely completely inappropriate and unprofessional!
Nice eve outside til the gnats attacked
I would always recommend and continue to return, but I would never recommend an evening at picketts if the service was as bad as last eve.. Ever..

Pickett’s has done a great job with the outdoor seating. They have put together the kind of casual, family-friendly neighborhood pub that Maplewood/Millburn really needed. Simple food of excellent quality.

My husband and I enjoyed our experience. We will definitely return soon! We shared Caesar salad and calamari app- would rec both. He had steak sandwich and I had mushroom Swiss burger- both were good but next time I’d try a more classic burger with less toppings. Pizzas looks good- people were having in restaurant and noticed lots of to-go! The outside setup is cozy. We’ll be back and definitely will try the pizza!!
