Great beer (something for every taste) and ambience. Not to mention, the food is gourmet and the wait staff extremely friendly.

Have had good food and great beer at the pump station. Tough place to go on a Friday or Saturday night with a group...long long wait to be seated and service, while very polite and professional - is slow. Craft beer is excellent!

Came here for a late night food stop on a road trip. Food was decent. Service was slow - although there wasn't many people in the restaurant. Food was good - it was just a regular burger. Fries were great though!

Try their craft beer and good buffalo wings. Also enjoy nice and chill out restaurant. You could walk in and enjoyed since they have plenty of table and a lot of parking space at the back.

Absolutely no complaints. Everything was great, food came quickly, staff was friendly. But it wasn't anything special. Pulled pork was awesome.

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
