This is a delightful restaurant with a quaint ambiance. The historical Pump house is a nice setting for good beer and food. Service was attentive and the meals were reasonably priced. It is worth giving it a try

This is a great choice for drinks or dinner, especially good before events downtown. They have a lot of beers on tap. They do take reservations and you will need them if there are any events in the area, as they get very busy. My...More

We were travelling home from out of state and decided to invite friends to meet us here. It is a little out of the way, but well worth whatever driving you have to do. It isn't all that far from Albany's main attractions. The atmosphere...More

Been there a couple of times just because dining in Albany NY is limitied on a Sunday. It's a standard brew pub - maybe if you like beer you would rate it higher. The food is mediocre at best. Service is ok as is the...More

We didn't want a big meal later in the evening, so we decided to stop for a beer & appetizers. Food & service was good but nothing out of the ordinary.

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.

Not a private room, but two separate areas on the balcony level above the restaurant. They are sufficiently removed from the bustle of the first floor bar and dining areas that they feel quite private. Call Tim or Neil and... More
