Gastro Pub
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.

Great day out with my family. Loved the apps (macaroni balls, buffalo cauliflower). Mains were just as good. Great portions and everyone was full. Loved the green curry. Will be back.

Great spot with great food. The cocktails are amazing & are decently priced. The Parmesean tuffle fries are probably the best I’ve ever had. The servers are also exceptional & make you feel very welcome.

Went for a date night and loved the food and beer. We did a couple of flights of beers to try out all of the different kinds they had. Our server was awesome and super helpful in describing each beer while also giving great recommendations. The food was also delicious. We would definitely recommend!

Always a fun time at the Brewhouse, but sadly found the service rather lacking this time. The front desk had 3 staff working, however, only handling one guest at a time. Although I had reservations, I found myself waiting behind someone who didn't who had a million questions. I'm not sure why all three hosts had to help that one guest.

In addition, our server was very much lacking in attentiveness. Sadly, this was reflected in the tip we left. When asked what the soup of the day was, the reply was "cream of broccoli or cream of cauliflower, or something like that." He had no idea. After we received our food, we didn't see him again until we had to flag him down to ask for the bill. Not up to your usual standard of service.

Super busy, our meal took almost an hour to come to our table but we were in good company so it passed quickly. Wish we could’ve stayed longer but we were on a time constraint to get to the leafs game for 7pm.

Made a reservation and was seated immediately. Told the server we were on a time constraint and he was very accommodating and sped along our experience. Food came out hot and delicious. We shared the truffle fries, mac and cheese appy, spinach and artichoke dip and the chicken and brie pizza which was to die for. It was a first time here for my other guests and everyone was pleased with it all.

We had a good meal and enjoyed the beer options. As it was just before a Leafs game it was quite busy and noisy, but that is expected. One of the best parts about the Amsterdam is the location. Great to be by the water and to enjoy a stroll after dinner along the lake.

Perhaps because it was New Year's Eve - the pizza was cold; the special menu item black cod was poor - overcooked. Disappointing.

Had an open table reservation for 5.30p. Was made to wait until 5.40 and later accused of a noshow. Our waiter John made me realize why some outhouses, toilets and shitters of this world are called johns. This idiot got absolutely nothing right. First showed up at 6pm (thats 30 mins after our reservation), then proceeded to bring in wrong drinks, wrong food and wrong check. While John equals toilet, Brewhouse now equals shithouse in my books.

Atmosphere and location were amazing! We were seated by a fireplace with a nighttime view of Lake Ontario a few tables away. Very friendly and busy. Menu was varied and reasonably priced.
Left off a star because music was a bit loud for conversation and even though we had a reservation it took an hour to be served our food. Service was slow but my understanding was that our server was seated four tables at once while trying to finish off previous ones. Other employees tried to help but with no pre-meal chips or bread...it was a long agonizing wait for tired, hungry travelers. Bathroom wasn't well stocked with toilet paper after a busy evening. Don't know if this was a fluke but it impacted our experience.
Worth trying again for sure!
