    Old water pump station converted into this brewery. Food is pretty basic, stay with the classic pub food - like the pump burger and fries. Beers are great. Get a flight. Or two. Or three...

    The gobbler is like thanksgiving on a roll. The hot gravy served with it is amazing. I had the beer sampler and for summertime goodness try the blonde... Also nachos not on menu but we're delicious!

    This place is a must visit for the internal architecture / design. Failed to make a connection or a 'wow' but was impressed by the expansive layout. Food was just 'average' but service was good.

    DON'T ORDER THE APPLE CRISP! Yuuuuuk! Those lumps are hard dough pieces with cold uncooked apples underneath ......A shame because the meal was great! Beer was outstanding!

    Went last night before seeing Jerry Seinfeld. Beer was warm and food was mediocre at best. Dry pork chop and flavorless steamed vegetables. Won't be back.

    The salmon gorgonzola is smack!

  • SilverDot⚪️ C.

    I missed the kick ass brown brew last Wednesday but... The kick ass cheddar with assorted cheese and fruit platter was awesome. Be sure to try Albany Pump Station's appetizers

    Great place to get hot-wings & beer. Be aware that the kitchen here closes at 10PM.

    Huggie Monster · May 19, 2013
  • Marina R.

    Get the cheese platter. Seriously. Their kick ass brown cheddar is unfreakingbelievable. The beer flight is completely worthwhile to figure out what you like. I guarantee you will find more than one

    From the service to the quality of the food...ABSOLUTELY uninspired. Not worth it!

    If the wait is long, you can eat at the bar. IPA is very good.

    Marginal beer with a chain type of atmosphere - there are better places nearby!

    Metro Bear · December 31, 2011
  • Kat V.

    All the beer is too hoppy, the pale ale is really good though bc that's supposed to dance on your tongue and it does. The pumphouse burger is pretty standard too. Not bad, not stellar.

    Kat V · December 30, 2011

    They comped the dessert!

    Doggrunner · December 24, 2011

    The duck was cold! The pork was nuked in the microwave to shoe leather! The chicken, fish, and lobster Mac was great!

    Doggrunner · December 24, 2011

    Louisiana carbonara is fantastic. Needs a little spice. But it's good stuff.

    Jose Medina · September 18, 2011
  • Konrad L.

    Gps leads you to an out of business gas station. Don't be fooled! Craft beer and food is around back.

    Konrad La Prade · August 1, 2011
