After being told it would be about a half hour wait, and leaving out name , we found seats at the bar. We started with... More

Love love love the varying beer choices here. It is a must stop when we travel to the capitol region. The beer menu has a few staples that are always available and it also has seasonal offerings. If you are a beer lover it is a must !! Enjoy!

Very busy at lunch time as part of the Albany Pump Station Restaurant. Beers tried in a flight were enough to make a decision and enjoyed all most all. Lunch was delicious with a large assortment to pick from.

It's a busy place. Noisy and bustling with people. Carrying on conversation with a group is almost impossible. Their Beers of course are the signature of this venue and do not fail to please. Food is great and reasonably priced. Service is pleasant and quick even if its really busy.

I am a beer fan, so I try beers, both craft brews and unusual draft offerings whenever and wherever I can. I have been to C.H. Evans several times, though not recently, and I have always enjoyed their beers. I visited last night after a hiatus of 4 years. I was alone and asked to be seated at the bar.... More

Like to take clients here for lunch or dinner as the brewed on premises beers are award winning and the food is equally as good.

The beer is terrific. The food is not particularly inventive, but not unreasonable. Amazing room. Was the old pump station when Albany drew its water from the Hudson. The beer is also sold retail in jugs (growlers), which are available for purchase. Also has its own parking, which is rare in a down town place.

They brew their own beer and the list is solid. As for the food, it's good quality and large portions at a reasonable rate. Definitely one of my "go to" places here in Albany. The restaurant is convenient to many night spots in Albany including the Palace Theater, Capital Rep and the Times Union Center. I love the spicy calamari... More

We enjoyed a good meal, and sampled the beers on offer. A good range of home brewed beers are on offer.
