We had a great lunch stop while passing through Albany. I had a turkey and stuffing sandwich with cranberry sauce that was outstanding. I tried their in-house wheat beer and it was tasty as well. Nice decor and excellent re-use of an old industrial building.

This is brewery with a kitchen attached. We stopped in for lunch but clearly the emphasis is on the beer and the ambiance. It's a nice atmosphere and the beer is adequate but the food was a disappointment. Bacon mac and cheese had traces of...More

My wife and I found this place after a convention. We really enjoyed the burgers and sweet potato fries and onion rings. We also had the sweet potato/ black bean burger. The ambience was great too.

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
