Went with a group of 5. Delicious food and pretty good beer. Their flight is the best value I’ve ever seen.

If you can get the tour on Groupon, get it and then visit on a Saturday. The tour is hosted by gentleman who started up the restaurant and brewery at this location. You'll learn how the beer is made and then have a few samples....More

Very interesting architecture, and good food and service. For lunch, we both had a half sandwich and a side. The pastrami was quite good, the apple butter spread was different, my spouse would have preferred deli mustard. Her salad was ample, and well seasoned. My...More

I would characterize this as a sports type bar. It's loud, large (high ceilings, noise echoes) with lots of TVs showing sports. The beer selection is good, the food good, the service unremarkable.

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
