The Pump House
Good food in FairbanksThe Pump House is a rare find in the generally uninspiring food scene found in Fairbanks.
Creative menu, good food and fun atmosphere.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter late than neverEverything was great except for the fact that although brunch started at 10am, it took until 1030 before all of the food was brought out and ready for service. As it was, customers who were seated early did not have access to the full menu.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile we always enjoy a niceWhile we always enjoy a nice meal out at the Pump House, Sunday's staff was CLEARLY understaffed and overworked. The restaurant was teeming with patrons, who well outnumbered the serving staff. I almost felt bad for our server, who, I believe, enjoyed ignoring our table.
I love Sunday brunch, and I love the Pump House, but they simply MUST increase staff to go along with the summer dining season.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI was pleased with the qualityI was pleased with the quality and taste of the food. My only complaint would be that the service was very slow and my dining experience would have taken half as long had the service been better/faster.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and exceptional serviceThe food and service were again exceptional and we can't wait to go back.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Fairbanks' finest dining.The Pump House is a great restaurant for nearly any occasion. A rustic dining area and great view enhance the excellent food and courteous staff. I recommend the bacon-wrapped scallops to anyone. By far and away the best I've ever had. Steaks are made to order and you won't be dissapointed with the portions. I hope you're hungry, because you definitely won't be when you leave. Parking is ample and if you're eager to get in early, the Pump House offers reservations. Truly a place for a wonderful dinner!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA truly Alaska Landmark, andA truly Alaska Landmark, and place not to be missed in Fairbanks. The food and service is always very a good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't like returning homeDidn't like returning home smelling of cigarette smoke, I guess it was from the bar. One steak dinner was under cooked. Service was a little slow but good.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Alaskan Must!It really is a "taste" of Fairbanks. Food was quite good, had reindeer, sweet & lean. Husband had 18.00 hamburger which he said was good also.
The ambience was old time and charming. Service excellent. Made sure you have a reservation, local & tourist popular spot.
We recommend Pump House as part of your Alaska experience!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
