The Pump Station has passed through a few phases since opening over 10 years ago, however the current menu is really quite good. This is the restaurant I want to go to on my birthday or any other celebration. I love the atmosphere and the menu are both very good, with nightly specials that are very interesting and often quite... More

Not your typical restaurant meals, who was nice. Have to try the flights of beer! Atmosphere very comfortable. Hard to get table without a long wait on weekend nights, but during the week there is no problem

We each got a salad, and both were excellent; later in our trip we proved repeatedly that getting a nice salad in a brew pub is not an easy task. The food had a nice presentation, and my order was rather complicated but they got it spot on right. Good variety of beer. Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere/architecture. Easy parking.

I had never been to Albany before this trip and so prior to going I had requested the Albany tourism guide, which had The Albany Pump Station picked as a place to eat while in town. This is how the restaurant got on my radar. Maybe because I'm from out of town, I found it a little confusing in terms... More

While the beers were pretty good, they all tend towards the Belgian style and light ales. The food was pretty good but not creative. The atmosphere in the building was kind of a retro industrial that didn't do much for me.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Albany. I love the atmosphere, the menu and the food. I'm not a drinker, but my friends tell me the beer is great too.

The wait staff was extremely slow and seemed to disappear for very long periods of time. I ordered the pecan crusted chicken salad. The chicken was greasy and burnt, there was what appeared to be granola sprinkled all over the top, in excess.There was nothing about granola in the description. Overall, I would not go back. Another person in our... More

This is a very interesting place for a fun time. You get he ability to try different kinds of beer and the food is very well done. The place is loud and noisy due to the building and its historic construction of old factory style. Fun place for the young and the young at heart. Good times are had by... More

Love the pump station for their array of craft brews on tap! Always something new to try. Their food is limited due to dislike Of cheese however always find something new to try. Wish they would put their linguini with clam sauce as a permanent dish on their menu instead of a special. It's To die for!

I'm not a beer drinker but I'm always happy to go to the Pump Station. I've never been disappointed and my last trip was no exception. While my wife had the Pump Station Burger, I opted to branch out to the pulled pork sandwich. It is listed as being served on a garlic baguette but I saw no hint of... More
