Great place!

If you are looking fir a great place to go before a show at the Palace, look no more. Convenient location , loved the beer and my braised short ribs were outstanding. Service was great. Big thumbs up from me and the missus.

All American fare in a pub/ craft beer environment is done right at this establishment. Our group sampled burgers with a tasteful flair, vegetarian dish and chicken sandwich with spinach and mango chutney. They were all tasty. Conveniently located in Albany it was a pleasant surprise combination of good service, good value and good food.

We had some good food and beers and enjoyed the decorating in this working micro-brewery. I will likely visit here again if I'm in the area.

I love the look and feel of this restaurant, almost like an old mill. I am not a beer drinker, but the other person with me is, and he really enjoyed the beer sampler. You can't go wrong with that presentation either! We both got the Smothered Pork and it was delicious!! The cheese, sauce and scalloped potatoes were a... More

You must visit the Albany Pump Station for the conviviality of its wait staff and the interesting architecture of the old building turned into a brew pub. The pub food is the usual with a few interesting twists. The brew master has done an excellent job in turning out seasonal specialties as well as the pubs traditional fare. I personally... More

We stopped here before a concert for a drink and a quick bite to eat. It was on a Friday at 5:30 and the place was packed with a 45 minuet waiting time. We talked to the hostess a couple of times and she was able to get us a seat in the bar area in about 20 minutes. The... More

A new visit for us but the other couple had been before. Wait staff was great, food very good and the specials offered worth the try. We spilt the Pump Station Burger and there was plenty to go around. Onion rings used red onions for a new taste but we're a bit soggy. Fries were great, as was the burger.

Booked last minute for a large group. Although they were not able to accommodate us with seating together, the service was fantastic and the food was great!
