I've been to the pump station quite a few times, always involving food. They are best at brewing beer and it should be noted that one can not typically be best at multiple things. So, the beer is great. The service is typically very good...More

Food isn’t that great, service isn’t bad. This restaurant is popular because of the location. Nice interior with brick walls. Possibly worth a stop once but doubt you’ll want to return again.

Every month a friend and I meet here for a leisurely lunch to catch up on our personal lives. The food and service is always excellent. Their menu is extensive enough to satisfy my taste which lean toward vegetables and fish.

Stopped here for an early dinner on a late Sunday afternoon. It was not too crowded. It was a very cold winter day and the fireplace was roaring, making the atmosphere even better. It was too early for dinner, but too late for lunch, but...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.
