Nice place for lunch with friends

The pump house has a very nice lunch menu at very good prices. Were seated out in the garden room with great views. My friends had the hamburgers, one had the 4 oz and the other had the 8 oz. both friends were very happy to have the choice and loved their burger. I had the seared tuna special... read more

Staff was very good. Food was excellent. Husband had a new york strip and it was cooked to perfection. I had salmon and it was tasty. That had a soup tasting bar and out was delicious. Home made tools melted in our mouths. Decor was nice and the view of the babbling river was nice. Would definitely eat her again.

We went with our family for dinner and we were not impressed. There were only a few people in the dining room and we had a hard time getting the attention of the staff, they were all gathered around the bar chatting with each other and not paying attention to the customers. The food was dry and over cooked and... More

We have dined at the Pump House at least twice a month for the last 10 years and have never had a bad meal. The owner is very personable and always makes time to greet us and make us feel welcome. As at most restaurants the portions have gotten a little smaller in recent years, but the prices have stayed... More

We go here often, because it is consistantly great....For our last trip, we started with the escargot and clam appetizer, perfectly cooked and very flavorful...Yes, they are served in the shell and are easily removed with picks/forks supplied...Our main...

Avoid this restaurant. I ordered escargots as an appetizer. Overcooked to the point that they were hard and baked into the shell. When I complained, the waitress said - "Yes that happens. You should have asked us to take them out of the shell in the kitchen." Clearly the escargots were frozen & overdone in a microwave. Main dish -... More

The Pump House is a quaint restaurant, decorated colonial style. One would believe it would be a fine time for food and drink. We gathered with friends to eat and chat. No reservations were made in advance, which, we were somewhat scolded for. Our server would not exactly win an award for being cordial and polite. The majority of us... More

The food here was okay but not memorable, since I can't remember what I had. The blueberry pie was dry and not very exciting. Service was very friendly but a bit slow. The view of the river was lovely.
