Very interesting brewery inside Albany's 19th century water pump station. Nice selection of craft beers and a good pub menu. The wait staff was excellent.

Bustling place. Convenient for a beer and bar food. Convenient parking, but it helps to know downtown Albany streets.

Went to the Albany Pump House on Friday night. Although it was very busy, the service was very good. The food was good, as well. Love the decor and the fact that they converted the old pump house into a bar/restaurant.

Generous portions of top flight pub food, plus, served by friendly staff, in an large room that adjoins a visible working brewery. Fun place, if a little noisy. Particularly good for a pre-theatre dinner before heading off to the show at The Palace. They also...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.

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
