Generous portions of top flight pub food, plus, served by friendly staff, in an large room that adjoins a visible working brewery. Fun place, if a little noisy. Particularly good for a pre-theatre dinner before heading off to the show at The Palace. They also have a 3 course prix fixe, M-Th, that's a great deal

A good place to meet friends for a meal. The food is good and the place is beautifully interesting. The service was phenomenal. I met friends that traveled for a two hour distance ( NY,Ct, Mass, VT) and we were able to sit for a long time without a problem, I would highly recommend.

Our party of four sampled items from different areas of the menu. We were all pleased with our nachos, beef, fish and Cuban burger. The beer selections recommended by our server, Elyse, were excellent. Her service was outstanding: friendly, knowledgeable, attentative. The building is a massive brick structure which used to be, yes, a pumping station for Hudson River water.... More

My husband, son, daughter in law and myself had a brewery tour at the Pump Station in Albany a couple of days ago. Chris was really informative and interesting and we were able to ask lots of questions we'd never managed to ask at other breweries. He spent loads of time with us and we were very honoured to find... More

This was our 2nd visit. We will be back the next time we are in Albany. The Greek appetizer was amazing!!! Highly recommend, very generous portion. The pear and goat cheese salad was a treat. We choose salmon for our entree. Very nice menu. We did a taste test of a few beers and liked several. The service was excellent.... More

Good food. Great building. Nice beer selection. Parking felt ample. Great for a friends night out. Only noticed high top tables, so didn't notice about handicap accessibility or accommodation. Had decent kids menu, too.

This is a nice place for a semi-formal dinner. They have a good amount of options on their menu- enough for everybody to find something. The atmosphere is great and you can see the vats they use for brewing

A very good place for sampling local craft beers. Eclectic menu offerings. And a great location next to the visitor center. Also walking distance to the Palace Theater and other fine bar & restaurant choices. Parking is around the back for first timers. Noisy due to height of ceiling and the hardness of the walls (repurposed warehouse). Good place to... More
