I've been there for lunch several times. When I'm looking for a place that is always top notch, this is it. Service is wonderful, nice daily specials, and great food.

CH Evans brews interesting beers, so it's worth a visit. The food is ok, typical pub food. good service in this very large establishment. Worth a visit because of the beers and location.

We have been to the Albany Pump Station several times, always with friends. We have had a fine times at every visit. The service has been prompt, the prices reasonable, and the beer is really, really good. Lots of folks visit just for the beer, but that is only half of it. Believe me, you can't go wrong here.

Brewpub with very good beer, food that's better than pub-fare, in the old water pumping station for the city of Albany. Great place!

This place is an easy go-to. The beer is pretty good, depending upon what you like. I am not a dark beer drinker, but I get the blonde and that usually is o.k. for me. It is a bit bitter at first, but I got used to it quick enough. The food is always good. I have had a burger,... More

When it is not an event night (so no show at the Palace) you can get a sear fairly quickly. The food is just OK, nothing special. They make their own beer and some of it is pretty good and worth a try. The interior is semi industrial and you can see the brew tanks. There is plenty of parking... More

Microbrew beers were pretty good...but the food was average...decent setting inside the bar area. IF the food was better, would be a place I would frequent more often

I have been here numerous times with no complaints about the foods. Delicious variety of food from delicious salads (pecan chicken is amazing!) to hearty mac and cheese. The decor chic warehouse. Brick walls, brewing tanks, sleek bar, a view into the kitchen, large fire place and space for events on a second open level. The beer is not my... More
