Stay away!! While the bar staff is excellent, the owner is a piece of work. It's definitely a regulars bar and they aren't particularly fond of newbies- and if you're a cop, or in law enforcement of any kind, you're definitely not welcome. The owner will do any and everything in his power to make sure the cops aren't anywhere near the bar- I wonder why... perhaps because of the sketchy antics that occur there? Though it's calmed down over recent months, fights are still fairly common. The owner isn't below slandering, bullying and banning the victims of sexual assault while allowing the assailants to continue patronizing the bar either. As for the food... perhaps a few more gluten free items on the menu wouldn't go a miss. The wings are pretty amazing though. If you feel you must check it out though, only go on a Friday night when David Howell is hosting karaoke- although, you could find him at DeMarco's in Bedford on a Saturday night (with a better crowd) or O'Malleys on a Thursday night too.
Honestly, I really think it speaks volumes when not only the bar manager who was a very loyal employee to the company but two other female bartenders who were absolutely brilliant and worked there for quite some time have quit in the past 6 months. If the staff don't want to work there, why would you want to spend your money there?
Great food, atmosphere. Easily the best drink and beer specials in the area.
One of my favorite bars in North Raleigh. Great place to get the local feel. Awesome food and very friendly staff. The menu is huge with a little of everything and it all taste great. Best Ribeye sandwich I've ever had. Plenty of tvs to watch sports and great entertainment on the weekends plus an outdoor patio that is dog friendly. Not sure about the bad reviews below but I know this place has made great efforts over the past few years to enhance the customers experience. I highly recommend.
Went to Picked today, the new menu is fantastic. I had the blackened tuna sammich... AWESOME!!!
The buffalo shrimp were perfectly cooked and the sauce was spiced just right.
Our server was Andrea and she was GREAT!
Great Ruben and great burgers. The fare is reasonable in price and very tasty. Not sure about the other crappy reviews. perhaps they haven't been here for a while
The guy who bartends on Sundays is RUDE! He is nice to the regulars that he seems to stay an drink with after his shift, but other than that he not very concerned with making anyone else happy. The tall girl that usually works with him is great! Ask for her!
I have always enjoyed the pickle onion. The food is always good and the drinks are tasty. And 15 tvs is awesome for a neighborhood bar.
Rude waitress – Wow, I just got back from this place and the waitress yelled at me! No kidding! She's short, dark, thin, long hair... I went inside (from the courtyard) to use the bathroom, and no one was inside. A waiter said I could cut thru the bar area, and so I did. After, I went back the same way, and she yelled at me! Trying not to make a scene, I ignored her, and she yelled two more times at me! Couldn't believe it. Had she told me kindly, I would have told her the waiter said I could cut thru, and I would have apologized for cutting through. Then, during the meal, she totally ignored me at my table and turned on a super artificial nice act to my friend. Food was okay, took long. For the first time in many many years, I left less than a 20% tip.
Gotta' say, tho, that the courtyard is charming.
World Famous Wings – I work at a local auto garage & I just wanted to say how much the staff & I loved those world famous hot wings. The wings are on point every single time we order! Thanks for having good food. The burgers are good as well.
