    Even though we made our reservation online, we were not given our choice of table. We wanted a table on he side with a little bit privacy. There were 3 table available but we were not offered that table.

    Good experience overall. I had the brisket sandwich and subbed the side for a salad. I usually love getting the brisket dinner but I wanted to go for a light lunch. It felt a tad too light. More meat in the sandwich would’ve been better. Definitely overpriced at $38 for a sandwich and diet coke. IG: mansafx

    First time and won’t be my last. The 2nd floor seating has beautiful views of he waterfront. My waitress was very friendly and took god care of me. I had the brisket dinner which was delicious. Although not as tense as I would like, but loved the smashed potatoes and coleslaw. The pink lemonade (alcoholic) really hit me. Worth the trip to the waterfront.

    Table was great, right by the fireplace. Beer is always amazing there and food was delicious. Our server was the worst I've had in years. Started off great and then she forgot about us. Took forever to get another drink until another server took it for her. Besides our server being terrible it was an ok overall experience.

    It was a busy Saturday but did not get acknowledged by any server for 20 minutes. Once she came over she was fantastic. On other visits the food was great but in this visit the chicken sandwich was overcooked. I’ll give a pass this time because it was a busy Saturday. Will definitely return.

    My husband and I wanted to grab some pre-game drinks and appetizers. The Amsterdam Brewhouse was perfect for this! They have excellent craft beers, and the cocktails on tap were awesome! The Spinach and artichoke dip and cauliflower bites were delicious and beautifully plated. Our server Michael was absolutely terrific, he took such good care of us and provided amazing service. He was exceptionally knowledgeable and provided fantastic recommendations, also incredibly friendly and humorous! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, we truly enjoyed our visit!

    We’ve been here before and LOVED the fish and chips. Yesterday I ordered them again and they were subpar to say the least. Seemed like they had been refried to heat it up- not flaky, gross fish. Buffalo cauliflower was wicked spicy and I could taste the batter on the inside. Pretzel and fries were good. Not a great experience.
