While in the area for SUNY Albany open house found this restaurant while driving around site seeing. Neat old building. Wasn't sure where to park but found the entrance in the back. Had to wait for host to finally show up to seat us. Had Evan as our very knowledgeable server. When in a brewery.....Ordered the beer sampler which was... More

Stopped here on our way to The Adirondacks this weekend from Boston and it was terrific! We had been there years ago and it is still wonderful! Conveniently located right off the highway. Yummy lunch! Tuna melt, "Cobbler" sandwich and open faced Prime Rib all delicious! Homemade chops and onion rings great too. So nice to find again and a... More

Its an old pump station with left over brick and heavy equipment everywhere. the bar area is open to the kitchen where you can watch some very efficiency chefs serving meals at a very... More

I went in during Octoberfest. for the seasonal beer, but I also had dinner. I ordered the clams and a burger with fries. I eat at the bar and after a short wait the clams were delivered. They were fantastic, the broth was so good I put my fries,in to soak it up.

We have eaten here often. The meals go well,with their brews. They have nice full meal specials regularly. We had our daughter,s rehearsal dinner upstairs and the service was good. It is often crowded so you may want to make reservations. Nice , fun , atmosphere.

this visit was better than the previous few. We didn't feel rushed to finish our dinner. For some reason, hostess always needs to make it seem like we need to rush if we want to sit at a table. I am sorry but we are there @ 4:15. How busy can you be?

This is a great restaurant for a light meal or a full dinner. There are a lot of beers to choose from as well as other alcohol (full bar) and non-alcohol options. The atmosphere is great and the wait staff were great too! Th e restaurant is in the same building as the brewery, so if you sit out by... More

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.
