    Always enjoy our visits to Albany Pump Station. Food choices are a bit limited post pandemic but are otherwise good. Always great beer on tap. Servers are pretty friendly and helpful.

    Went there for dinner. Didn't have the beer they have on their list, didn't have the meal I wanted to order. On top of that, when you get the bill, they tell you that there's a 3.5% surcharge if you use a credit card (by the way, this is illegal in NY). Food I ended up with wasn't bad, and the wait staff was very pleasant. Also, I reserved ahead for a booth, when I got there they acted like I was too late to get one, ended up at an open table. Won't be going back any time soon.

    Everything was fine, our waitress was phenomenal, table was clean, however my wife and I were both very disappointed with the food! It is what it is, but I think we just had higher expectations given the raving reviews we’ve heard about the place.

    Husband didn't care for his burger. The calamari was very rubbery and didn't like that it's plated over the marinara so you have to push through the pile to get any sauce. Not a fan.

    Got there just as they opened on Sunday so the crowds were light. Food was good service was slower than you'd thing for the few customers but they did a good job and we appreciate all the people that are actually working. We understand the prices were a bit higher with everything going on in the world so that being said, it was a great place to eat before the show we went to see at The Rep

    While the food was excellent the steak I ordered was alit smaller then I would have thought for the price. Service was very slow. Initially it took 15 min for our server to appear to take our drink orders. And after dinner 3 in our party ordered coffee and that took 20 min. Overall a good experience but I've had better service at many other restaurants

    I went there because it was supposed to have one of the best burgers. In my experience it was one of the worst. No flavor at all. Tasted like washed ground beef. Overpriced. Salad was average. Pretzels way to salty. Pretzel sauces also tasted watered down. Very poor value

    Ahi Tuna sandwich was absolutely tasteless and had grizzle (or something like it) which made half of it impossible to eat. The Caesar salad was drowning in dressing which make the lettuce soggy and un appetizing. On the other hand, the strawberry salad was very good...the only high point of the meal. The beer is certainly not as good as it used to be. This place isn't what it used to be. We won't be returning anytime soon, if at all. Our server was very good and apologetic for the food. He deserves better than to work at CH Evans

    The beer list requires the use of my smart phone. My phone does not fish, ski, or golf and I never take it to dinner. There should be a printed beer list with descriptions.

    Know that it is paid parking. Bring quarters. Our credit card didn’t work at the meter. The staff was not helpful. Just said read the directions and we couldn’t understand them. Otherwise service was good. Food was good. The place could use a cleaning.

    Great food options that are healthy as I am a picky eater. And can't have greasy food. I cane to eat the night before a race abd had healthy turkey sandwich and soup. Very nice service. I didn't drink and beer but my bf did, lots of choices very cozy atmosphere and rustic like a renovated factory building but with a gorgeous old fireplace. Huge inside but 2 sections to separate bar from dining area. Easy to walk to from downtown hotels.

    I ate a wonderful meal here a few years ago and was eager to return. I arrived at 7:30 and was told the kitchen closed at 8, so while I appreciate the fact that they accommodated me, I also had my medium steak arrive very rare and the server never checked on me to see how it was or if I wanted a second drink. If you're not interested in serving a customer, don't seat them.

    First time here visiting from "downstate" as NYC seems to be called "up here". The parking situation while obviously no fault of the restaurant (they have signs posted on the entrance proclaiming so!) is somewhat confusing. Two separate parking lots I believe owned by separate companies with wildly different rates (at least on a Wednesday evening). I wonder if this is a relatively new situation? Originally reserved for 7pm but had to change to 7:30pm due to traffic north of Albany, we were seated after a somewhat long delay at the unmanned hostess stand to be told by the server that the kitchen was closing at 7:45pm! Quickly perusing the menu via QR code, we selected calamari, fish & chips and 2 burgers. I didn't try the calamari but my son said it was soggy. The burgers tasted like they had been cooked at too low heat. Fries were not hot. The beer was decent (wit & kolsch) on the positive side and the server was pleasant & attentive but I don't think we'll be returning any time soon (and my son is atrending RPI until 2027). All in, an underwhelming experience :-( from a place that is the 2022 best brewery in the Albany Times-Union newspaper. Based on the beer, I agree but not for the food.

    To our surprise, we found that we now had to pay for parking using a new, somewhat confusing online system before we entered the restaurant. This wasn't the restaurant's fault, but I think it definitely impacted on the very low turnout on a Friday at noon. The food and service was very good, but getting a little pricey like other places. But the kicker at the end was being charged about 4% for using a credit card. Reminds me of when restaurants used to charge extra for blue cheese dressing. Just bury the 4% into the prices, of course at a lower percentage to account for people who pay cash. As a result, our group won't be back anytime soon.
