Sit outside, under the trees

Amsterdam food is always good. I go there when I want to linger, drink wine, and visit with family or friends. I especially enjoy sitting in the courtyard. It's tiny, not beautiful, but something about it is comfortable. Wait staff changes, but they are always pleasant and professional. I usually... read more

Had lunch at Amsterdam Cafe while visiting our son in Auburn I had fried green tomato BLT and my husband had crab cake/avocado sandwich. We split them and each took 1/2. Both were excellent but I did prefer the crab cake avocado. The inside was very nice and quite cozy and unique.The wait staff was professional and very pleasant. Will... More

I ordered the crab cake/avocado sandwich. It was pretty good. Honestly, I don't see how it's one of the top 100 sandwiches in Alabama. My friend got the daily special, mahi mahi. It was delicious. I would recommend it over the sandwich. Service was OK.

We had the lobster rolls to start. It is too much for one person but just right for two. They are tasty with a nice Asian sweet dipping sauce. We then had the lamb burger and a steak. Everything was well prepared, cocktails were well prepared and brought out quickly. All in all, a very recommendable place that we would... More

Quite a unique and quaint restaurant in the middle of a historic neighborhood. You will enjoy a great meal but feel like you are a long way from the crowds. The crab cake sandwich is my favorite although everything I have eaten here is great. We always take our out-of-town friends to this restaurant.

Some restaurants come and go, but Amsterdam Cafe has been here for almost 25 years, with consistently good food (for the most part). I've been there off and on over the years with either colleagues for lunch or family. It was the first restaurant I ever had sweet potato chips at, before they started appearing all over the place. It... More

I come to town 2 to 3 times a year and Amsterdam has always been on my list of places to eat. I will say that this time I went the food quality and service has gone downhill. I was a bit disappointed this trip!!

The food was great (a little slow in coming) but everyone was pleased with what they ordered. The service was also great but the restaurant is just a little pricey if you have a tight budget.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food and service was good however, we were concerned about access for our guest who was using a walker. She navigated the high step to the inside dining area. This was not a problem last time since we sat outside.
