Fabulous steak from GrillTime local meat market, grilled to perfection by the chef at Barrel House. Great value with choice of side & wine pairing. Thanks to Andrew for great service & Erin for checking my steak was perfectly grilled. Great dinner & value in a lovely atmosphere while supporting our local businesses! ❤

Great place, excellent service, would go again!!!!
Cozy ambience. Good variety of food (pleased 2 20'ish guys and 2 seniors).
Food tasted great! Would go back again!
Amsterdam Barrel House never disappoints - always amazing service, cozy atmosphere and great selection of food.
Best food and customer services. Nina was really great.
Hi there Nav, Thank you so very much for the support & direct shoutout to Nina your server & the culinary offering! Thrilled to see we were able to keep our promises and can't wait to welcome you back when restaurants reopen! See you soon my friend. Matt P General Manager
Very helpful staff great food and he beer pairing was excellent. I will go back.
We visited just as new Covid 19 rules were in effect. Comforting to see Barrel House being so careful about seating, screening, masks, etc. Comfortable atmosphere, with a roaring (gas) fire going for a cold evening. Friendly efficient staff, both our entrees were great.
Hi there friends, Thank you so much for the direct mention to our health & safety protocols. It's been a tricky ride for this industry (as many others) and we are constantly trying to ensure that our guests are comfortable as it is our way back to hospitality. With that, we wish you a healthy & happy holiday season and hope to see you again soon. All the best. Matt P General Manager
A great experience! The four of us ordered from the special Grill Fest menu. Steaks were cooked perfectly! Service was excellent - personable and attentive.
Andy, Thank you for the support & fantastic feedback based on your experience. Love the direct shoutout to Grill Fest menu as well as the personable service. We strive to ensure that every guest sees our expectations when it comes to hospitality and I'm thrilled we were able to deliver. Have a safe & happy holiday season and we hope to see you back again soon my friend. Matt P General Manager
Great pub food, lots of options on the menu. The Brick Chicken was outstanding. Our server was attentive and the venue was clean. We enjoyed our lunch.
Carrie, Thank you so very much for your support, fantastic feedback and recommendation with lovely words to boot! It makes me smile that we are keeping our promises (where we can!) and that you were witness to such! Can't wait to host you again and wishing you a happy & healthy holiday season. All the best. Matt P General Manager
Hi my service was excellent! both my waitresses helping my table were phenomenal and friendly. Always love dropping in. Lindsey Walcott reservation 1:15pm. Please give my crew my compliments I forgot their names sorry!
Lindsey, Thanks so much for the FANTASTIC feedback as it makes me thrilled to see we hit our hospitality promises on your visit with us! Have a safe & happy holiday season and hope to see you in the new year! All the best. Matt P General Manager
I am very pleased that the menu was expanded by the list of "specials". That added value to me. I tried one of the specials (the pork chop) and was very pleased with my choice. I commented previously on the rest. Keep up the great work. I seem to come more and more often
Great service and food.
Yanique, Thanks so much for the support & fantastic feedback on your experience! Hope to see you back again soon. Happy Holidays! Matt P General Manager
ordered the ribs...too spicy for me and they were overcooked...will stick with the Margarita pizza
Great service. Have visited a few times and food was just ok today. A bit of a freezer burn taste on the chicken.
Amsterdam really needs to add more than just a brioche bun to all their burgers and sandwiches. A different type of bun, perhaps a wrap. Brioche buns are not for everyone.
Our server was excellent, but at the end of the night a different server was quite rude to myself and my date. We were there slightly past closing, along with a couple others still in the restaurant, and when we got up to leave the waiter said loudly and openly 'finally'! Due to that and her shaking her head at us several times, we won't be back.
We come every Wednesday and usually get the same spot as we have kids. Last night was no different however there was a child seated next to us that was coughing quite a bit. Normally we’d power through but with my youngest being immune compromised we panicked a bit.
Not wanting to make an issue I quietly asked our waitress to relocate us. They totally understood and were super accommodating and I couldn’t thank them enough.
Looking forward to returning.
Loved it here, fish and chips was amazing and I liked the 3 speed beer.
I’ve always liked the Barrel house. The food was okay but I prefer broiled calamari instead of battered calamari.
Overall, I continue to love the place. The service continues to be excellent - the staff is both professional and relaxed at the same time (a great combination), the food was good but not quite as good as on previous visits (and thus a bit lower rating this time), the price is not low but justifiable given the overall quality. I am not all that fond of the open concept as it does not give a sense of cozy privacy - something I would value. It would be nice if the menu contained few more items or if there were some specials.
Overall, a great place. Our 2 sets of friends that we dragged in also enjoyed the meal. We will be back
Andrew H was so courteous, knowledgeable and efficient! His service was truly impeccable. Thank you Andrew.
I ordered lemon butter chicken schnitzel but was nothing like schnitzel and extremely bland. We received chicken breasts (not even pounded down) which were dry and flavorless. We had to squeeze lemon on them and add loads of pepper. Potatoes were again very boring. My husband had the brisket and the sauce was tasty. Overall, pretty disappointed and won't rush back to spend $90 on boring food.
Good food and great service in a comfortable atmosphere.
We've been to Amsterdam Barrel House before with better food and service. Unfortunately this time our server kept rushing us. The food ok. I received my dinner salad with no dressing and bowl half full. Calamari was cold but the poutine was good.
Great restaurant, I have dined here a couple of times and have always enjoyed the food/Atmosphere. Highly recommend the Brisket dinner or sandwich. Delicious! Also ample parking in back lot.
Great food that both tastes and looks good, very good beer (what is happening with the Pilsner?), very courteous, professional service. Having a bit greater variety of dishes and/or short-term specials would be nice.
I like the fact that tables are not crammed together, I like the fireplaces. Still, the open concept and austere decor is modern and neat and clean and tidy, but a little too austere for my taste and does not give you a sense of cozy privacy.
I have become regular - that says it all.
I've dined at Amsterdam many times. It's a delightful place
and a very warm environment. Always a pleasant experience.
Glad you are back with indoor dining...less hope it continues. The
winter months are particularly gentle there.
Great comfort food and service.
Always wonderful at Amsterdam Barrelhouse. Great service, food and beer. So happy they brought back the Thai Curry. Wish they would bring back the fajitas and the boneshaker cheese dip with the pretzel breadsticks.
Server was attentive and enthusiastic. Gave us half pint of beer for two of us on the house because they got one order wrong ( which was fixed right away)
we have been here numerous times and generally get great service along with good food and a good vibe. on this occasion, our server disappeared for a good 15-20 minutes while we waited for her to take away the plates and bring us the bill. this is uncharacteristic at this restaurant but disappointing nonetheless.
Came in for dinner on a Friday night and we had a great experience as always. Made a reservation and requested a table by the window and we couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our anniversary. Our servers name was Sylvia and she made our evening very enjoyable. Our drinks and food were on point, water glasses stayed full. Ambience is super cozy, plenty of tables, and very clean washrooms. Definitely reccomend this location.
Great service. Good food
Had a great lunch. Lovely service. Awesome that all are being checked that they are fully vaccinated.
Everything was nice
Reception was quick and smooth amid COVID vaccination policy. Table was already set. Food was not bad but portion could be more generous.
Absolutely perfect with kids!
