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.
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!
We very much enjoyed our experience at the Amsterdam Barrel House. The vaccination check was quick and efficient. The server was friendly and accommodating. The meal was good. We did wait longer than we would have liked for the bill.
Great service. Efficient check-in process (Covid). Tables well spaced. Only negative was another customer wearing far too much perfume, not the fault of the restaurant but it did detract from our enjoyment.
Love Wine Wednesday!! Friend and I now get together regularly there. Had a smokehouse burger- worth every calorie!!
I have to comment on great service. Hostess at door was welcoming efficient and the young lady who waited on us was excellent
Amsterdam must be a good place to work because servers always seem to be friendly knowledgeable snd best of all - terrific service - No staring around hoping someone will notice you starving in a corner !
Sophia! Thanks so very much for the support & feedback as well as the Wine Wednesday marketing plug! Hah! We'll continue to promise to offer our hospitality package paired with our feature days to help bring some value for our guests & help curb the rising inflation! Will see you back again tomorrow night perhaps? All the best & stay safe. Matt P General Manager
Excellent location for a get together! Delicious food. The dip was excellent, even my son who doesn’t eat spinach and artichoke liked it a lot 🥰
Love this place...great burgers! Service was outstanding in the bar section!
John, Thanks for the shoutout & recommendation my friend! Thrilled to see you were treated to our hospitality standard on your visit & I hope to see you back soon my friend. Stay safe & all the best. Matt P Genearl Manager
Excellent beer and good menu with usual good items there. Burger and wings were good!
Take the beer flight.
all good. cauliflower bites (buffalo) we really good. appreciate the low-carb option!
Service was excellent and our food was delicious. .
Ford was pretty good. Server Marregon (sp.?) was very pleasant and attentive.
Good place for business meetings and quick catchups
I THINK our server was Andrea? Glasses and an actor who hopes Barrel House does winter wonderland on the patio this year. She was amazing, fun, super efficient. We’ll request her section if she’s on shift!
Great time. I’ll be back!
Food was great and the service from Nea was even better. Our son had a great time.
Good food, good beer, good vibes. Recommended for sure
Have been to Barrel House numerous times for drinks. This was first time for food. We found patio clean and bright. Our waitress was very friendly, helpful and prompt.
My wife and I ordered the Portobello burger. My father and his wife ordered the fish. All the orders were large and delicious.
We will definitely return for more than just the beer.
Did not disappoint.
Great server-Nina is a credit to this restaurant.
Decor warm and inviting.
This is second time at the Amsterdam Barrel House in 2 1/2 weeks.
Will definitely recommend to friends and will come back personally.

I made a reservation for 4, got an confirming email. Arrived, no reservation. One of our party was already there and given a table under my reservation. They were on another patio and we didn't see her. Hostess put us first at a corner table outside with gas fumes, for two people. then we asked for something more appealing. she moved us to another table for two. We didn't realize that our other party had been sitting on the south patio for 15 minutes. I was made to feel like it was all my fault, because she didn't look up my last name for the reservation. Wait staff was fine, but you hostess was totally clueless. When making the reservation, we were not allowed to book inside, when we arrived it was almost empty inside, but there was definitely people eating in there. A bad start, to what ended up being a nice meal.
From the front door to the bill I was impressed. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the food and beer. He made excellent recommendations for those of us who could not decide. The food was absolutely phenomenal!!! Looking forward to going back and keeping room for dessert 😊
Hi Tracy, Your review is affirmation that the promises that we make to our staff on the daily are being translated into proper hospitality for our guests and it makes me smile! Thanks so much for the support & can't wait to host your group again soon! Stay safe & all the best. Matt P General Manager
Very friendly staff and great fish and chips, even if 2nd best in Leaside (as they themselves advertise!).
LewLee, Thanks for the support & fantastic feedback on this visit! Thrilled to see we nailed the overall package and yes....We do owe an establishment such as the Olde Yorke the respect that an institution such as itself has earned.... And they're a fantastic family to boot and even better neighbours! That said, cannot wait to host you again at the Barrel House! Stay safe & all the best. Matt P General Manager
nice staff good food happy environment friendly user web site
Family lunch and Kevin our server was excellent. Even our kids were impressed with him. Food was delicious. Will definitely return.
Yanique, This is the type of feedback we live for. Thank you so very much for the shoutout on the experience and we will certainly pass along the message to Kevin. Can't wait to have you back again soon! All the best. Matt P General Manager
Food and service was great! Will definitely come back again
