Recently visited this restaurant. The staff is so friendly, the food is outstanding, and some of the best Sangria you can hope for. Try the shrimp and rice or the Chilean Sea Bass(when available). This is one of my go to places with friends, business associates, as well as family. Parking can be a challenge so if you see a... More

Always great food and friendly service. Garlic is the way to go - shrimp, chicken and vegetables, all fantastic.

We stopped in for the Skirt Steak. This is the best Skirt Steaks we ever had. I grill them at home, but I have to say these are the best. The tables had small wine glasses on them the girls were not drinking so I said give me house red. Our waiter took away the wine glasses and brought me... More

So disappointed because of all the great reviews. Went there for a family dinner and ordered the Shrimp with parmesan which I thought would be Parmesan encrusted shrimp of sorts. However, what I got was a watery, tasteless spaghettio-like tomato sauce with beer-battered shrimp and charbroiled cheese on top of it. (Please see picture). The result was not good. Certain...

Always a good place for bbq meats and fish. With lots of similar places in the area this is one of the top ones. Get a combo platter.

I've had the dishes before, numerous times, but they always seem better at Pic Nic. The staff is extremely friendly and even help with parking. The sangria is good, but could be a bit sweeter, but they do make it sweeter if you ask. Then it is very good.
