The place is amazing, all of the food is fantastic, you really can't choose wrong. The calamari is where it's at though, so keep that in mind! Love the beer, they have a good variety of styles and all of them are great. The service was the best too, Jody is the man!

Delicious menu and a great atmosphere. I've been here numerous times because I love their food (try the calamari!). They try to sell themselves as a brewery (well, they do make beer so I guess that fits), but their beers aren't very good. Stick with the food and beers from other brewers and you can't go wrong!

Good place to go for a casual dinner if you are going to the Palace Theatre or Capital Rep. Atmosphere is great. It is a good place to go with friends or with teens. Food is pretty good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich. Both are good, but didn't blow me away. The roll for... More

I came here based on Google map reviews. The place impressed me enough that I emailed my friends and am writing about the pub while I am still here. Historical building and left that way. It has open ceilings, cozy bar and the knowledgeable bartender only make it better. The menu is filled with pub and some non-pub food. I... More

I am always pleasantly surprised when I ask for gluten free options and eyes don't roll, but lLivia stepped up to the plate and after several trips to the kitchen returned to the table with a plan. I had a delicious afternoon burger and cider and never got sick! Will def be back next time I'm in town!

Pump Station is always a staple for my friends and I when we visit the greater Albany area. Their in-house beers and burgers are very much worth it.

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.
