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.

Special event celebrating our daughters birthday. Food was good, server was excellent and we had a great time. We didn't feel rushed at all even though it was busy.

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!

The fish and chips was very hard. The batter was too thick. The vegetable burger was cold. I have come here before and the food was much better... may be next time!!

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.

Amsterdam has gone downhill. The food used to be served quick, piping hot and delicious. Service was slow. Food was held for a long time under the heat lamp (our Tarter sauce was literally steaming hot) and the fish was soggy and order was incomplete.

Not bad, They were going to seat us at a small table, I asked for something better. Since I did make a reservation. They staff were not impressed. Service was a bit slow, We had to ask for utensils and water. Water should be a given. We were not informed of any food specials or drink specials. It was only 4 pm before the restaurant gets busy with the dinner crowd and it felt like we were being rushed out when we were done our meal.

We had a new server, who did a phenomenal job. However, all of our fries seemed cold and old and the salmon of the Nicoise salad was overcooked. Cocktails were great, even though I asked for something custom.

Our server was amazing, service was fast and food was good. We had 2 tables for a total of 13 people of which 8 were kids. That is a challenge for anyone. Our server handled it amazingly!! Great job, great place, just wish I remembered her name.

Food is overpriced and was not cooked properly at all. Raw dough for the pizza I ordered and under seasoned and bland burger my friend had. Unfortunate.

Great place to go for food and excellent beer. Service was fantastic - thank you Jamie - and the fish & chips was wonderful.
So many choices of beer and I really appreciated that our server took the time to explain them all to us.
Right by the water so nice to have a seat outside if possible

We were given a table where we got squeezed. There was an empty table with more room but the hosting gentleman said it was reserved. How comes? I also had a reservation, why don't you switch them since I was already there? For that reason our quests from Hague did not feel comfortable.

Afternoon lunch and drinks on a beautiful sunny Wednesday at Amsterdam! The view was stunning. The beer was cold and the food was excellent. Our group of 6 only waited a few minutes to get a table outdoors. We ordered chopped salad, pizza, hamburgers, and brisket burger. Not one complaint!

Very attentive staff but didn’t know about Health Canada’s neurotoxicity of west coast oysters. Oysters were on display at the bar. Management should keep staff advised.

We were entertaining three teenage guests from Israel. They arrived that evening, and were hungry teens. One meal came over 10 minutes late, and we all waited while our food got cold. Our server brought the manager over who offered no apology, and no reimbursement. He seemed annoyed we were upset as by then the food had come. I walked into the kitchen to place the food order myself as our server had disappeared once she brougth 5/6 meals. One of our guests had a birthday that night. I mentioned this on the open table booking, and to the hostess when we were seated. No cake came, and to be honest we just wanted to leave the restaurant and had lost all faith in the Amsterdam's ability to provide proper guest service. We bought a cake on our way home, suprised him ourselves. This is some of the worst service I have ever had.

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.

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.
