What can I say? Amazing craft beers, amazingly good and cheap food (and LOTS of it!!!) and friendly and warm staff. We absolutely loved this place. I had the Reuben sandwich. So amazing. Just way too much for what I was looking for, but this is something that I will never fault a restaurant on. If you're ever in the... More

We had such a lovely experience at the Albany Pump Station Restaurant. The atmosphere is wonderful in this historic brick building with original brick and large cranes along with the new and pristine stainless steel brewery tanks all on the Albany waterfront. Our server, Joseph was polite, attentive, and informative. When we had questions about menu items, he offered us... More

Sunday lunch/dinner was a nice experience. My wife and I both ordered from the three course fixed price menu. A very nice value at $17.86 each. Calamari and spinach beet salad were both nice starters, although would have preferred beets cubed rather than sliced, as seems more common. 50/50 with entrees - free range chicken was very favorable and tender,...

A local must visit, the Albany Pump Station now houses the CH Evans Brewing Company, which as a brewery, harkens back several generations. The interior of the building supports much of the equipment used to pump water to a reservoir that provided water for much of the city of Albany. Lots of pictures surround you reminding you of the history... More

We went to lunch on a Saturday afternoon. There is a lot of parking so that is nice for downtown Albany. We were greeted and taken to a table right away. Our server came over quickly to take our drink order. She was a nice waitress, but she talked so quietly we could not hear her.The menu had a decent... More

My companion and I arrived around 1:20 pm and we were promptly seated. After a wait of about 5-8 minutes a gentleman said he was our waiter and asked if we wanted something to drink. We ordered Pepsi colas and in about another 2-4 minutes he arrived back with them. We then gave our lunch order. I ordered the Reuben... More

A mid-sized group of us went here for dinner after some work meetings in Albany. I would say that the building itself was the best part of our visit! The upper seating area was closed for a private event, but we had a great table in the back near the fireplace. The food itself was fine, but nothing I would... More

Friendly and attentive service. The building itself is very cool and the food is reasonably priced. Went for lunch with coworkers and was very pleased at how quickly the food came out. Pump Station Burger was delicious. Everyone else in our party was also very pleased with their meals. Great atmosphere.
