way too hot to eat inside, very noisy, we asked for a glass of water 3 times ,we received our water at the end of the meal, i advise you to wait in line outside for the terrace because they do not take reservations, good beer.

The place is nice, but main dishes came out before the appetizers and some of the meals were cold. Not surprising because of how big the place is and how many people they serve. Always an inconsistent experience when I come here

The Service was arrogant and not interested in the customer. The food was okay but for that quality it was to expansive. Sorry, but the Service was so unfriendly and a little bit agressive. For us it was very difficult to understand him but the do nothing to speak clearly and louder.
Never again!

Beautiful location right on the waterfront, excellent atmosphere and a killer patio....what more could you ask for?? How about amazing food.....yeah they have that too. Definitely making Amsterdam Brewhouse a hotspot to visit when I’m in the neighbourhood.

I had a great meal and the service was great. On our reservation we did request a table outside, and when we arrived we were told that we had to check-in inside and they don’t take reservations for the patio. So we went inside to ask and they said we could wait in the patio line up for a table. However there were at least 10-15 people in the patio line up and pretty much all of the tables were available, so we didn’t want to risk being in a line that didn’t take reservations, and weren’t seating any tables with almost an empty patio.

Best fish & chips in the GTA.
We did have a slight issue but the server & manager were on it immediately. Would highly recommend the restaurant.

We’ve been here several times, everything was perfect except for the fries. Party of four ordered two burgers and two fish & chips. Burgers was excellent and fish was as crispy and delicious as I recall them to be. The fries were cold with no crisp which was disappointing. Didn’t mention it to the waitress as I didn’t want to ruin the mood.
Everything else was perfect, we sat upstairs on the deck on a gorgeous afternoon with friends.

Food was great. They were out of stock on the Raspberry wheat ale which I was planning to have. Service was a little slow. The place was very busy. We got a nice table by the lake.

My server was excellent! The only issue I had was in my reservation I requested outdoor patio seating. When I arrived I was not asked if I wanted to be seated inside or outside. After I was seated inside and I said my preference was for the patio I was told I would have to go back downstairs and ask at one of the patio entrances.

Patrons who are not regulars don't know there are multiple entrances.

I think the restaurant should train their hosts on asking where a customer would like to be seated...every other restaurant does.

Other than that the food was great, service by our server was awesome and timing was good.

We came here for a team dinner. The atmosphere and views were perfect. Wasn't a long wait for patio seating. Food and drinks were good and our server took great care of us. What more could we ask for?!

The only thing I thought was cheap of them is that you pay $4 to upgrade your fries to poutine and then they give you half the amount of fries that was supposed to come with your burger...my friend had the same thing I did and she had a lot of fries and my extra $4 got me a tiny bowl of fries with a little gravy and cheese curds in it...felt kind of ripped off!

Our drink order got messed up so we waited 20 minutes for a drink. Our food order was slow and our mains were served before our appetizers. Not much of an apology either. Food was pretty good but overall it was a frustrating experience.

I live close by so have been to this restaurant on several occasions. The food is consistently terrible. I have tried a wide variety of items trying to find something that isn’t over cooked. Hamburgers are hockey pucks, brisket on two occasions was really bad, wings are dry, pizza uses too much sauce and cheap cheese sparingly applied. The restaurant itself is nice and the patio lovely. I guess if you only go for the decor and beer then this restaurant will be ok.

Thank you.

More shade and maybe adding bigger or more umbrellas will make the patio experience better in the summer heat.

Food was ok, but service was terrible.
Had at least four different waiters throughout the evening and all of them seemed like they could care less about anything related to their job.
One waiter was scratching his stomach under his shirt while listening to us order exposing his bare stomach!? Another was telling us how hungover he was.
Food kept coming that we hadn’t ordered and the wait staff seemed to be in total chaos.
Had to ask repeatedly to order drinks etc. and a few mix ups with the bill.
Nice view but thats about it.

I was disappointed that I reserved a table upstairs and when I arrived was told that this could not be accommodated. We ended up with a table downstairs near the side patio door.
The food was fine, 4 out of our table of 6 enjoyed their meal. Vegetables with the schnitzel were bitter tasting. Sangria had way too much ice and after a few minutes was watered down most likely because it was a very warm evening. Location of restaurant was perfect and the view of the waterfront was beautiful. Music was a bit loud. With the restaurant so busy, huge crown we were unable to hear conversations at our table unless it was the person next to you.
I will return but doubtful it will be on a Saturday night.

The Raptors were playing so it was busy and noisy. Our waiter was fine but a little slow with requests we made. The food was ok. i substituted Caesar salad for fries. I felt the salad portion was small. Plus the croutons were 2 large toast crackers that practically covered the bowl.
Someone is really monitoring the food cost with this small portion.
