    Great local brewery! Asset to Fredericton & the Northside
    It's a great spot to drop in for a beverage while out for a walk. Outdoor seating is great - hopefully they look at ways to expand. Some of the staff could up their customer service game I would say they are the #1 spot to get a Growler refilled - southside liquor store advertises refilling options but no one works the counter. Overall, love spot and would recommend others to visit

    Nice spot
    Nice relaxing patio, dogs allowed, great slow-paced, casual chilling spot. All service was smile-free / friendly-free. But nice spot despite the miserable staff. (Interacted with maybe 5 or 6 people...all the same)

    great stop for food and brewery for beer tasting
    this was an auesome place for an outdoor supper on the river. The food was so fast and what we had was great i had the salad bowl others had the wrap, burger and poutine. All reasonably priced and we moved into tap room and enjoyed the strawberry beer and other flavors with covered bridge chips was a great evening

We went on a Saturday afternoon at 1pm and it was busy. Had a hard time finding a table. There was no one there to receive or assist placement so your on your own to find a table! We finally secured one and had placed our order at one end of the brewery and walked over to the other side and purchased our drinks. Waited an hour for our food and sat down to eat and it was cold. Had to take it back and it was replaced but still disappointing to wait that long and having to return it because it was cold. It was very noisy yes I expect it to be noisy but the combination of families, kids screaming, dogs on premises barking yes dogs in the restaurant which I don’t think they were working dogs they certainly weren’t wearing any type of vest or identifiers that identified that! All in all a very disappointing return trip to Picaroons. I’m doubtful that I will be returning.

Great location we all sat outside nice view of the river, great atmosphere. And that's where it ends. Ordered food for 6 adults we were told 35 min wait for food...that's OK it was busy. After 55 minutes we asked and we were told our order wasn't close. Yet 10 min later we had our food. Which was ice cold...yes the burger was cold to the touch. Asked for it to be heated, and I got fresh hot fries and the same cold burger and the fries were just ends. Worst food I've had in a long time, and the beer wasn't cold...go figure

Pet friendly! We live 40min outside of Fredericton and wanted to sit down to eat. The reason we came to town was a vet check up for our pet bunnies. We asked if it was ok to sit with the our bunnies on the patio. They said yes! We were pleasantly surprised and had the BBQ spicy chicken burger and it was delicious. Great atmosphere, so welcoming and right on the water. We will definitely be back for your outstanding and inclusive environment. Thank you!

Huge patio and yard with table and chairs. You order food and drinks and pick up when buzzed. Two layer nachos were great - we actually had toppings left at the bottom. Never happens with regular nachos - heat idea.

This place has good food, a large assortment of craft beers and killer views. The staff are are helpful and friendly. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. If it's nice do yourself a favor and sit outside and enjoy views of the river while you enjoy good food and drink.

I visited when waiting for a flight out of Fredricton. There is a walking trail and bridge across the River out back. Clean and airy inside, there are a large number of tables and seating areas out back. Great place to burn a few hours. The staff was nice enough to hold my luggage so I could walk the bridge and trails without having to drag this along

Went out for a meal with friends and enjoyed sitting outside on the patio overlooking the river.
However the food was once again a disappointment. Cold fries, soggy batter on the fish. A real disappointment.
540 used to be so much better. Hopefully they will find a way to improve again soon

Dog friendly drinkaria with great food! Was in Fredericton with our dog and were looking for a dog friendly place to eat. Had the wings and the “deconstructed” club sandwich …. Very very good! . Beautiful building, great architecture , beautiful scenery along the River. Can’t wait to come back again!

It's a great spot to drop in for a beverage while out for a walk.

Outdoor seating is great - hopefully they look at ways to expand. Some of the staff could up their customer service game

I would say they are the #1 spot to get a Growler refilled - southside liquor store advertises refilling options but no one works the counter.

Overall, love spot and would recommend others to visit
