Had some time to kill while in Albany so went to this restaurant in a renovated factory turned-into-a-brewery for lunch. Good food (had the veggie burger - menu said it was homemade and seemed so - not the greatest I have ever had but well above average), moderately priced, interesting decor - you can literally watch the work of the...

Known as the Pump Station, this is a great place to enjoy a booth or sit by the fire or at the bar. The brews are well-received, and the menu has enough variety for just about everyone you may go with.

We went there because I like old buildings with character and my father and grandfather were firefighters. The building has a lot of the old charm from the days it was used as a fire department. The waiter was knowledgeable in both the building and the types of beer and origin. I was impressed. Food arrived quickly and was spaced... More

Yesterday was a return trip for me to this restaurant having been away from this area of the city due to my schedule. I met a friend her and we had a... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Albany Pump Station. Having the Owner provide the history was excellent, along with a very informative tour from Chris. Tasting was perfect as we were able to try many of their special brews. We followed our tour with lunch. A very enjoyable afternoon!

My daughter and I went for a weekend lunch and the place was hopping! We arrived just as a tour of the brewery was beginning. I had the beer battered fish and chips and received two HUGE fillets, crispy, flaky, steaming hot. The "chips" were really good too, however they were pretty greasy -- they have a coating on them....

After mass yesterday, a friend, was kind enough to take me to the Pump Station, in Albany, where I must admit I haven't visited in ages. It was superb! Our server, Courtney couldn't have been nicer, and very accommodating. It was relaxing and delicious. Just loved the whole lunch, and even took some home for dinner. Excellent in every way,... More

We went to Angelo's 667 Prime and didn't feel the love. We were a little under dressed and felt a little out of place when we were told that if we walked about another block and a half we'd love a place called the Pump Station. We took the advice and were thoroughly glad we did. Great atmosphere, service, food,... More

Stopped as a drive through Albany, had to check it out. Tasty beer, casual atmosphere, with mix of business and others. Love the open kitchen plan. There were a variety of choices on the menu. Our server was a bit inattentive; no refills on water and only checking in as a 'drive by' thumbs up asking "All good?" Overall a... More
