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

A great menu to choose from. No matter how big your party is, the food comes out hot for everyone. The waiters and waitresses are very accommodating and helpful.

After exploring the beauty of Albany, we went to dinner at Evans brewing restaurant. The menu was full of tempting choices. We started with the Farm Salad which was fresh followed by the fried calamari which was a nice crispy dish. Our entrée were soft and tender Baby Back Ribs and a bit oily Lobster& Shrimp Macaroni. It was a... More

The ambiance of the old wharehouse turned eatery is awesome. It's a lively place with a very hip buzz about it. The night we went, the food was spectacular in taste but our server had a very off night. Slow, forgetful, with a bit of a 'tude! Shame on you young lady... I will definetly go back and try again.

We had the craft beer sampler which was fun and tasty. The food is excellent - had the Gobbler sandwich and the French Dip and they were both incredible. The staff were wonderful and the place has a really cool industrial vibe. Go there for sure!

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 sister and I took a chance on a Saturday night without a reservation, and we... 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 was relaxing, the food pretty good and the service excellent. Highly recommend this place.

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 ambiance.

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.
