This place needs to get their s**t together! I’ve ordered from here twice now, first time I ordered the fried chicken, their menu DOES NOT say it’s a sandwich, it says “fried chicken”. I got two pieces of dark and fatty chicken which was gross,...More

Did an overnight in Albany, N.Y. so I looked up where to grab a quick eat on TA. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a beer hall which translates to loud. No problem because we came to eat burgers. We both had the pumphouse burger, on...More

Had some great craft brews and picked up a Growler! Very friendly and helpful staff! I have a weakness for the Pale Ales and sours

Make reservations or you will be waiting for a long time. We sat in a booth. Place was very crowded, but, waitress and kitchen were on top of everything. Food was good. House wine not so good - go for the bottle. Beer choices plentiful...More

Actually, the food was a bit better than average but, after a lapse of 3 weeks, I can't remember for certain what I ate. Restaurants usually make more of an impression on me. Having said that, I wouldn't hesitate to return. I recall a wide...More

Never had one. The Pump Station has made a lot of recent changes to its menu What new things I've tried have been good, however I haven't had the bean-burger. But I will someday.

Not a private room, but two separate areas on the balcony level above the restaurant. They are sufficiently removed from the bustle of the first floor bar and dining areas that they feel quite private. Call Tim or Neil and... More
