Good beer. Good people. Good times. If you want good libations in a casual spacious historic setting served by welcoming and willing staff for a reasonable cost then this is the place to go.

Tomato soup and calamari has been excellent since they opened over 18 years ago. Never a bad meal, good beer selection and nice surroundings. Can be a bit chilly in the winter time. I only give it a 4-5 rating because parking can be a...More

The Pump House offers lots of different beers made on the premises along with pretty decent bar food - burgers, sandwiches, etc. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Prices are moderate and this is a reasonable option for a relaxed dinner. Service can be slow...More

We went there for dinner one night, but the staff was not very nice, and the restaurant was over reserved due to a concert. Tons of open tables but would not seat us. Tried again the next night. We were able to get a table,...More

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.
