    Excellent food and the people there are super nice. The place is a bit small and the tables too close together, but this is not uncommon in Amsterdam. Recommended!

    Products have great quality. The staff was very friendly although they could have used one more colleague on a Saturday. It was a shame that we could only order one brisket per table though.

    Pendergast has the best American bbq in Amsterdam! The ribs and the beef brisket is a must try, the meats are so tender and tasty! Be sure to book a table as it will get busy at night even on weekdays.

    Very good, originally stewed, slow cooked meat. A lovely experience. I can recommend the spread meat platter, with beans and mac 'nd cheese as a side.

    best hidden secret Kansas BBQ in town. Someone reminded me yesterday they did not know about this restaurant, and I realized: lets keep it that way. So if you are randomly looking at these reviews? Keep on walking, nothing to see

    Fantastic BBQ food and very nice service! We ordered the "Spread" to share between the two of us with beef brisket (finger lickin' good), pork ribs and cheeks. Everything was delicious, including the sides and the portions generous. On top of that, service was very kind and helpful to decide what to order. One to come back often!

    Had a great dinner! Tried both the ribs and the brisket, very tasty and smokey. Food tasted amazing and the staff was very friendly and professional. Will definitely go back there when I'm in the mood for some bbq :)

    Good brisket. USA beef and long, quality Applewood smoked! I am from KC,MO and thus is the closest real KC BBQ I’ve had since moving here 15 years ago! BBQ beans are good as well. Their sauce is the most authentic I’ve had here as well. It’s not “Arthur Bryant’s” but it is close!

    This menu is unique in Amsterdam or even in the Netherlands. Cooked to perfection! We ordered a combo platter for three: So three different meats (or a choice of fish) and original side-dishes/starches. A home-made BBQ sauce is on every table in a glass bottle (which really needs some sort of lable). The beer and wine selection is a very pleasant surprise. Will definetely return here. Thank you, Willem

    Great food. The service was excellent and they really try to persuade you into choosing some dishes. Food was more than enough. Only downside was that there were no fries...

    Great menu, solid BBq sauce, authentic tastes and sides on point. It was WAY to busy for the two people working the restaurant, but we didn't feel like we were neglected. My suggestion would be to hire an additional person for Friday/Saturday service that only focuses on drinks. That will for sure bring more revenue (with added drink sales) but also keep the people hydrated ;)

    Went with friends from Texas and they were blown away by the barbecue. Every appetizer, meat dish, side, and cocktail was a delight. Will definitely keep coming back.

    Authentic quality southern cooking combined with genuinely friendly service in a trendy non pretentious setting. Mac & cheese, collard greens, pecan pie- - heavenly. Excellent experience. We will be back for sure. Thank you Brandon and everyone at Pendergast for a wonderful evening.
