Sour Bartender Service – Amsterdam Billiards is a beautiful place, but the service is the worst I've ever encountered in NYC. The bartender was was rude & incompetent. Although there were only 6 people at the bar she was overwhelmed and very hissy towards us. We merely wanted to place a drink order, to go along with the food order that she just took from us (that she never placed to the kitchen). We were supposed to meet other people here but opted to walk out.
This bartender, working the Saturday night shift at 8:30pm might be happier at a job euthanizing shelter dogs. If this is their Saturday night staff line up, I can't imagine how they run this place. We're never going back.
Overpriced, terrible waitress service. – Been going here for years. They remodeled corner billiards but didn't bother updating the felt on most of hte tables. It says here that you can rent a table for $26 and have it for the whole night... never had that offered to me when I was there. Always very very pricy. The waitresses are impossible to find when you're thirsty, until you try and order from the bartender at which point they'll chew you out for not ordering from them. Unfortunately not a lot of other options in the area.
Best Pool Room in the Nation – This pool room has it all:
Great leagues, great scene, great drink prices, great staff. I especially like the fact that they incorporate so many different things to do while you're there. I have been to many rooms across the nation and overseas and this one always comes up in conversations. They're world famous! You also have a chance to meet pro ball players, pro pool players, and other celebrities if you go.
Great place to hang out, grab some drinks, shoot some pool – Don't be misled by the last review. Obviously the person is with Eastside Billiards. They recommend going to Eastside or Slate yet they slam Slate as well. Kinda fishy if you ask me.
Amsterdam Billiards is a fun place to be. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly and the place itself is awesome. I've been there on a regular night and to a coupld of corporate events and I always have a fun time. Plus there's always a chance of a celebrity or professional player sighting. Who wouldn't want to shoot where the pros go. Hey and if you're not a pool player you can always chill at the bar, throw some darts or play a little ping pong. There's even a little lounge area where you can just relax with you're friends and watch the games on tv.
I love it there and I highly recommend it. Check it out for yourself - you can be the judge.
Best pool room ever – I have been playing pool for more than half of my life. Being a professional pool player has brought me to every continent and thousands of pool rooms on the planet. I truly believe that Amsterdam Billiards in New York City is the best pool room in the world. I never felt so comfortable anywhere else. The warm upscale ambiance, the best equipment in the industry but mostly the "Amsterdam People" make this room so special and enjoyable to me. Go there, play pool, have a drink, make friends and become a part of the family !

Not only a pool hall, a great place to hang out after work! – I work a few blocks away in Union Square and come to Amsterdam Billiards all the time for some rest & relaxation. Good drinks and good times. Some of us play pool but for those of us that don't, the tvs, the space and atmosphere are more than enough to do the job on any night of the week! We love coming so much we are having our corporate party here next month.
My favorite pool hall!!! – Either to have fun, to find some action (of any kind), or just play a serious game. This is the place. Besides all that, the mixed drinks are awesome, you have to try the "teatini", a martini made with Black tea fresh lemon and vodka...wow!!! You are certainly going to ask for one more.
The staff itself are known for being a blend of American beauties or Exotic foreigners, such as Brazilians, Mexicans, Hawaians etc.
Go ahead and check it out!
AMSTERDAM IS THE BEST POOL HALL IN NEW YORK, IF NOT THE COUNTRY. IT'S NOT EVEN JUST A POOL HALL, IT'S GOT A GREAT BAR SCENE ALSO. I'VE BEEN TO DOZENS OF POOL HALLS OVER THE YEARS AND AMSTERDAM IS THE BEST. I ALSO HAD A PRIVATE PARTY THERE ONCE WITH MY COMPANY AND IT WAS GREAT.
