Stopped here for an early dinner on a late Sunday afternoon. It was not too crowded. It was a very cold winter day and the fireplace was roaring, making the atmosphere even better. It was too early for dinner, but too late for lunch, but...More

This place is excellent! Fried calamari is the best I’ve ever had. Get all the sauces on the side. Lobster and shrimp Mac and cheese is wonderful.

Have been coming here over the past thirty plus years, always dependable for dinner, espcially before a show at the Place or a play at Cap Rep. Haven’t really been here for lunch simply because I am not in Albany much during the daytime hours....More

This place is huge! Parking is available with easy access. The vibe was pretty tamed for a Friday night. The food is your typical bar fare. There are several spots that offer a more intimate setting. The service at the bar could be a little...More

We were in town for the marathon and came in here for lunch/dinner after the run. Had the Pump Station Burger and it was a great one with the side salad. Karen had the Chili with House salad. Good table service and quick service. Enjoyable!!

Never had one. The Pump Station has made a lot of recent changes to its menu What new things I've tried have been good, however I haven't had the bean-burger. But I will someday.
