We stopped here while in Albany for a wedding. We wanted casual, ambience and good food/drinks. The atmosphere is phenomenal. It's a real pump house converted to a restaurant. Nice bar with good beer. The sea bass special and the scallops were cooked perfectly. The waitress was great and eager to suggest healthy sides to substitute for the carbs I... More

I ordered a flight of 8 beers (pre-selected, cannot choose your own selections). The hefeweisen and the brown ale were my favorites. Also had the lobster & shrimp mac & cheese. This is a dish worth the price. And it goes great with beer. Grabbed a growler of IPA to go.

Great atmosphere! Lots of space for large parties. I was really impressed with the menu--something for every appetite. Sandwiches, salads, great burgers, hearty entrees. Great beer list. The server we had was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Definitely glad we checked it out.

Very interesting brewery inside Albany's 19th century water pump station. Nice selection of craft beers and a good pub menu. The wait staff was excellent.

Bustling place. Convenient for a beer and bar food. Convenient parking, but it helps to know downtown Albany streets.

Went to the Albany Pump House on Friday night. Although it was very busy, the service was very good. The food was good, as well. Love the decor and the fact that they converted the old pump house into a bar/restaurant.

The Albany Pump Station is in the beautiful building with high ceilings and a ton of detail. It was really amazing. My family visited Albany Pump Station for my sister's 21 birthday. They were able to accommodate a large group and we had our own little area to ourselves. The staff was all super friendly. The food was decent. I've... More

Fun brew pub with good food. Enjoyed sampling all their beers, very good onion rings and good food all around. Odd corner of Albany under an exit ramp, convenient to Palace theater. We stopped in before 5 on a Saturday night and were able to sit immediately, when we left an hour later it was packed.

Thank stevendale
