Great Beer
Where Locally Crafted Beer Meets Fresh Artisan Food! Our menu showcases some of the most creative uses of not only beer, but elements of the entire brewing process. From cooking with spent grains, making reductions from young beer, and creating braises & sauces from our many brewed-on-site adventure beers, we use it wherever we are able! Our pier location, directly on Toronto’s waterfront, provides an unparalleled 270 degree view of Lake Ontario. Centrally situated in the Harbourfront neighborhood, we offer the convenience of being a short walk from all the cities top attractions, including the Rogers Centre, CN Tower, Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Air Canada Centre, as well as its vibrant Financial, Entertainment and Theatre districts. Our 14,000 square foot facility offers an on-site craft micro brewery, impressive patios, flexible audio visual systems, an authentic wood burning oven, open kitchen, retail beer store and an experienced culinary team.

Great experience, especially if you're your table is near the windows with view to the Ontario Lake! Beer is particularly good!

It’s was too noisy and other customers became aggressive because of poor entrance Management ( line at the door)

Love this place! Always eat there before an event! Food is great, our waiter was fantastic! The only complaint I might have is there was cold air blowing on us, but I think it was just bad luck with the table we were at ( you got to have ventilation) and the tables are really close where we were. The group beside us was so loud we could barely have our own conversation without yelling above them. But, again bad luck, not the restaurants fault! Overall great place! We will be back for sure!

Beer selection is fantastic. The Stout was very rich and tasty. I had the smoked brisket and now I don't think I can have that anywhere else it was so good.

Went before a Raptors game. Food was great. Service not so much. Drink order got mixed up by first server. Would not be corrected by second server. Could have easily been rectified but unfortunately was not.

Very accommodating to our group of 8. Got us in earlier than reservation time and fast tracked the late comers order. Food was very nice, decent portion size for the price and good menu choices to suit varying tastes.
Love the beer!

They don't let you pick your own beers for flights! We weren't able to taste all the beers we wanted and had to order beer we had tried already in order to have one of their pre-made beer flights.
The food was good but expensive.

Great location right on the lake. A good selection of craft beers - Boneshaker and Spaced Invader being my favourites. Food is pretty good and priced very fairly. I like going here especially in the summer before a show or just with friends.

Brisket sandwich is great. DO NOT sub for caesar salad... $3 more and you get a thimble full. 😕

We love Amsterdam but had an exceptionally good time today due to our fantastic service. Very sorry that we can’t give our server the credit he deserves. He was funny, prompt, attentive and fun. Always a great restaurant with great food but this server made the experience even better.

We visited with some friends from out of town. We were seated at a lovely table by the window and fireplace, overlooking the lake. The host passed on the information to the server that we had guests from out of town, which I thought was attention to detail! The server was patient and attentive! The beers were wonderful too. The brisket burger was a little disappointing - more like a pulled pork burger. I expected a nice slice of meat. The other meals were good. I would definitely go back to try the other dishes on the menu.

Made you wait right down to the second for your reservation. Not seated a second before 6:00.

2nd time I have eaten at Amsterdam and been seated on the lower level by the boats. Great seats of you have light and the ability to read the menu (way to dark, not enough lighting).

Other than the wait and dark atmosphere, this is a fantastic spot!!!

The Amsterdam Brewhouse has amazing ambiance and lots of unique beers to choose from, but the food was average. We ordered the spinach dip as an app and it was good, then between 4 of us we had a pizza which was tasteless, fish and chips which were average and 2 burgers that were good. Then in one of our glasses we found a cherry stem stuck to the bottom of the inside of the glass and it wasn't noticed until the drink was halfway done = gross!! I showed our server and he just offered to bring me another drink to replace it BUT IT WAS WATER I WAS DRINKING. Thanks for nothing. The food and drinks were expensive and I had a dirty glass which they didn't offer us a discount on our bill or even a $5 gift card for a future visit. With a major pandemic virus going around and known cases being in Toronto, you'd think they would be more careful with cleaning their glassware.

Food was good and priced well. Great variety of beers on tap. Service was horrible. Server took forever to arrive, then another huge gap in time to put our food order in. He did not even bring our meals to the table and never visited us during our meal to check if everything was alright and more importantly to refresh our beers???? We had to ask two other servers to get our guy to see us. Brutal.

I really wanted to love this place. We were on vacation and it was right by our air BNB. We did enjoy the beer! I had the wings which were highly recommended and found them pretty bland. My husband had the ribs and they were tender and fall off the bone, but also a bit dry and again bland.

The servers were great and accommodating; reservation went off without a hinge and all request accommodations were considered! Say perfectly in front of a tv screen to watch the raptors game as well.

Friendly service.
Food was a little cold when served, had to be reheated.
Menu options are limited.
Bread would be a nice thing to have with a meal.

Richard was exceptional. He's a server that is present without hovering, aware, polite, personable, etc. We had our two year old with us, and he put her order in separately so that it would come out first. This is something that not everyone has the awareness of - that little ones have time limits. Outside of that, the food, beer, and atmosphere were great as always.

Our original waiter got upset at us for something and just left and didn’t inform us that someone else was taking over our table so we were left waiting for service until we had to chase him down. Not impressed.
