A great location on the waterfront, a good vibe and good service, and a good range of their ownbeers and a few others. A great place to sit and watch the boats go by.

Very big place right at harbour Front. Nice decour but its sheer size was bit overwhelming. Very clean. Service was excellent. Food was very good. Prices were of what would you expect from the location. They do offer samplers but they are arranged by themes so you canít select what you want. Beer quality is very good to excellent.

This is a great place for a beer. Lots of seating with an awesome view and a number of different Amsterdam brews on tap plus bottles available. Service could have been faster but it was busy for the Double Tempest release. Bottle shop was right next door and open until 11pm. Prices were a bit steep for food but it is a tourist trap. Overall I really liked this place and would go back. Great atmosphere with superb food and drink. Cheers!

THe money dumped into this place must be obscene! what a gorgeous, HUGE place. The service was top nothc. the food i had was incredible, and the beer was quite nice, I enjoyed the option of different flights, and the exclusive non LCBO beers. Was disapointed they didnt have a few of their bottled beers on their menu, but i found very capable alternatives. I really liked this place, would go back in a heartbeat.

Gigantic place down by the lake. Windows into brewing areas, and nice indoor and outdoor atmosphere. Was there for a large company event, so service was (understandably) slow. Food was pretty tasty. Selection of beer was... strange. About half the things listed on the menu were not actually available (and unfortunately, it was the GOOD half missing). The cask wasnít pouring right, so didnít get to try Autumn Hop on cask. There was also at least one beer available that wasnít listed on the menu. So the overall selection was... your guess is as good as mine. Some up-to-date menus would really help. I didnít pay, so I didnít pay attention to prices. Overall a pretty good brewpub from a getting-better brewery. Would go back here, but it wouldnít be at the top of my list.

Huge restaurant on the waterfront with more patio seating than could be imagined. Absolutely beautiful in the summer on the water. Inside is big and open, clean and modern, perhaps a little sterile. Have the regular Amsterdam beers, as well as some more interesting specialty/one-offs, including cask ale. Retail store also on site. Food is above average pub grub. Service is unspectacular. Value is decent, especially if one considers the location. Bit of a pain to get to unless you live on Queenís Quay but worth visiting.

Massive restaurant space right on the waterfront manages not to feel as kitschy as such a large space potentially could. Two story kitchen, two bars, and a very nice patio right on the water. VERY busy on weekends and in nice weather. I have been twice now, once for dinner and once just for drinks. The beers are great, particularly the more adventurous specialty beers. Large bottles are priced for sharing. They offer "themed" samplers of the draft beers. Menu offers a range of pub grub and snacks to high end entrees Food on first visit was a bit overdone/not great but I suspect that that was the result of growing pains in the first week. I look forward to trying some of the fancier dishes on the menu in the future. Service is variable so far, we had one of the best servers weíve had and one that was pretty mediocre in the same visit. (Again, itís early stages and this will hopefully improve.) Bottom line, most of the flaws can be fixed and are worth it for the beers!

Tried a few things (sampler) from a decently varied selection of Amrsterdam brews. Good sessionable Danish Kuhy, mediocre APA, poor Brown Ale and tasty IPA. But the experience was ruined by how incredibly poorly managed and staffed this venue is. The second bar had only about 6 patrons (though the restaurant was 75% full) so I sat there. 10 minutes (real 10 not imagined 10) just to get bartenders attention and menu. Then had to flag her repeatedly before I could order my flight. 20 more before I could get a food menu, at which time she wouldnít take my second beer order saying sheíd be right back. 20 more minutes and I dropped a tenner on the bar and left hungry and angry. Read the TripAdvisor site afterward, and apparently my experience was typical. Once the tourist crowds die down, this place is in deep trouble.

Popped into this place a few times since itís opening (itís conveniently close to my place) and theyíre doing a lot of things right. Two sweeping hemicircular bars - one up front by the lake and one as you walk in. Lots of shiny new bright tanks visible upstairs as well. The space is really huge - very sleek and modern looking decor. Several patios - my favourite (although Iíve not actually sat there yet) is the one with Muskoka chairs looking out over the lake. Clearly - no expense spared in the build here. Theyíve got all of their regular beers and a number of their seasonals and newer products on tap (Iím glad to see Market Pale getting regular release) as well as a selection of their barrel-aged bottled selection in the coolers. I like the simplified pricing of all of their beer as well (everything is $7 - glass size changes based approximately on ABV). Food looks good (although I havenít tried it yet). This place is going to do very well. A few issues with staff beer education (or lack thereof) that should be taken care of, but Iím prepared to overlook that. Canít wait until the brewery is fired up and we start seeing new experimental stuff coming out. Also a bonus - the attached retail store has their seasonals/specialty beers available to go (although they seem to sell out very quickly).
