Pickety Place is a quaint restaurant with a delicious five course lunch menu that changes monthly. Service is excellent with friendly servers easily accommodating special requests. We have been going every month for a few years and have enjoyed every visit. The herbs from their garden enhance the food and are available for sale in the gift shop -- along... More

Booked a 12:45 luncheon time here, had a delicious creative meal. Each month they have a different menu, and a number of people said they come once a month to try all the different menus. I hadn't been here for years, but it was still delightful, even in the middle of winter when the gardens lay under snow. The only... More

Pickety Place is the most quaint and charming restaurant and gift shop that I have had the pleasure to dine and shop in for quite awhile. The restaurant menu is the same with two entree'choices for each month accompanied by a lovely dip, homemade Bavarian pretzels and cheese dip and salad. In January I had the pleasure of eating the...

Great place for a relax meal, tasty courses with fresh herbs to enhance flavors, menus can be checked out on-line but change monthly, very attentive service. Recommend that you make a reservation for one of the 3 seatings. I would question the wisdom of guests who bring very small children, older children can review the menu beforehand to see if... More

An amazing place. Beautiful grounds and you can walk around and see where they grow all that they serve. Flowers too. The do the same menu for one month and serve 3 times a day. So check them online and make a reservation. Food was awesome, service excellent. All of us had the pork chops with apples and mashed potatoes.... More

This was our second visit to Pickety Place. (Try saying Pickety Place without smiling!) It's a bit off the beaten path but that is part of its charm! Nestled in the Mason NH woods, your visit starts with choosing a parking spot from various clearings in the woods. (Limited handicap parking closer if needed.) A short walk to the main... More

A rutted, muddy road led us to the little cottage in the woods... which turned out to be so much more! We shared a delicious five-course meal and spent hours walking the grounds and gift shop afterward: "eye (and nose) candy," as far as we could see (or smell! The food, the herbs and the grounds are glorious, and the... More

Lunch at Pickety Place was very good, we had a good day walking around the gardens and shopping in the store. The grounds are beautiful.

I love to visit this restaurant. Seasonal menus with farm to table approach are a highlight. There's 3 seating times to enjoy brunch-luncheon type fare. There's a standard menu with generally two options for the entree including a vegetarian meal. It's 5 courses including appetizer, salad, soup, entree & dessert & some beverages are included as well. For all you... More

I can understand why many people complain about the portion sizes, it's because the food is so so so so good, you just want more. If we as Americans had a better concept of a portion, there would be NO complaints. Everything from the cheese spread, to the homemade bread, the fresh cold salad, the amazing lavender lemonade (which yes,... More
