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.

The staff was great but halfway through our entrees we noticed a bug crawling on one of our group and got it off of her. Then we saw two more crawling all up the walls at our booth and looked closer to see that they were cockroaches. The management came over and discounted our meal and offered free dessert but we were already turned off and disgusted by the fact cockroaches were crawling everywhere. They were apologetic but apparently according to other reviews this is something ongoing and recent. Beware if you visit.

Unfortunately with the open concept from the upper floor, I could see the house managers and expediters as they were dealing with a complaint. I could see conversations outside the kitchen area. I am familiar with the food industry so saw the manager dealing with the customer, dealing with the kitchen manager, speaking to two waitresses. Saturday at around 8:20 pm. Another customer may not have been as adept at following the nuances of the interactions. Next time, I will sit out of view and not in eye short of that area.

As an out of town (over 2 hours away) I would have loved a window view. Although reservations were made, I could not specify.

Food came out in impeccable time. I know how weekends can be for restaurants. The pretzels were amazing. But could have been a little less salty. The sweet dip for the pretzel was so tasty.

I would have gave 5 stars across the board except our appetizer and main came at the same time and the server seemed to not be able to hear us well because of the speaker overhead. Other than that a fantastic meal and night out.

We went to dinner and drinks before the Leafs/Bruins game. Probably my favourite Toronto restaurant. The food is always good, as is the 3 Speed. Our server friendly and efficient. The Amsterdam is always busy but we never have a long wait to get in. This visit we had a reservation.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed my food. The place is massive, and I just didn't expect much from the kitchen, but it was delicious. Our server was attentive and friendly and that helped offset a bit of a sense of sitting in an airplane hangar, just because of the sheer size of the space.

Our food was great as was our service , my only complaint was the open warehouse concept and the noise . Granted it is a bar as well so you d expect a level of noise, but there really is nothing to buffer the sound and it bounces off every wall.

My family and I had a great time at Amsterdam Brewhouse. We loved the decor and ambience which was unique to the Brewhouse. Gorgeous colours, lighting and fun to look around and take pictures with family and friends.

Our server was funny and friendly and offered suggestion when we asked for some.

Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy the food. We ordered crab cakes and they were fishy. 😕 We mentioned to our server and he said that they recent changes the receipe, and they didn't get any complaints. Maybe bring the recipe back? The Mac and cheese balls were good and the sauce to go with it was flavorful. The bang bang shrimp was tasty too, but for the price, there was not enough shrimp and too many chips of some sort. For our main we order the fish and chips and the chicken schnitzel. Unfortunately, the chicken schnitzel felt more like chicken parmesan then actual schnitzel and it packed salt. The brocolini was tasty, but the fingerling potatoes could of done with a little more cooking. Finally the kids menu was fun and the kids enjoyed their meals.

With a little more attention to the food, this place could be amazing than just great. 😊

Value for what we recieved was poor. Their octoberfest pizza was overpriced. At 17 dollars we received some bacon bits and a few onions. Nothing like it was described and the response from the server was to try and justify what we got by comparing it to a food commercial and said you never get what's advertised. Funny how the other pizza had ample toppings and was exactly how it was described.

My husband and I went to Amsterdam Brewhouse with our son who attends the University of Toronto. The food was amazing especially the Buffalo Cauliflower, the Ribs and the fish tacos. Our server was the best. He really made the lunch personable and a lot of fun. We will definitely be visiting again.

We chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. We were seated on the second floor next to the window overlooking the water. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t clear but we did enjoy watching the boats and planes. We were two adults and two children and the menu had something for everyone. The kids menu was typical fare. My husband had the southwest chicken pizza and he really enjoyed it. I ordered the brisket sandwich and it was superb! I also had a tasting flight of beers which were all fantastic. The food was well priced for the quality. The only complaint I have is that the music is really loud and made it difficult to carry on a conversation. Otherwise, Our family enjoyed our meal and our time at Amsterdam Brewery and will return again when we visit the City.

This was our first time at the restaurant. What made our stay so remarkable was the server and her kind and knowledgeable responses to our special dietary needs. Our daughter has a severe nut allergy and her friend a gluten allergy. They were both able to order off the menu and choose a meal that they wanted. Thanks for an enjoyable evening!

When I called them to make a reservation for second floor patio tables, they said that they don't accept reservations for patio tables, but patio tables will be available based on first come first served. So based on their words I decided to go and lineup for a patio table. When I went there they tolled me that second floor patio is booked for an event and no second floor patio table is available.

They use unethical tactics to bring people to their restaurant.
