The Pump House is a multi-level, riverfront restaurant featuring two bars, including a rooftop bar, all with sweeping views of the beautiful Catawba river. Situated in the new Riverwalk development, the Pump House is an upscale, gourmet restaurant with a casual but elegant atmosphere. It was at one time an actual pump house which was used by an acetate plant. We have repurposed the building to create a one-of-a-kind restaurant featuring gourmet, southern-inspired cuisine, a hand-picked wine list, and craft cocktails. We hope to serve you soon!

'Went here for Father's Day dinner with my husband. Pump House is a very interesting and unusual place to dine right on the Catawba River near Rock Hill, NC. The food was inventive and very well presented and DELICIOUS. 'Could not have chosen a better restaurant as we were out-of-towners.

It was a nice father’s outing. Everyone was pleasant and kind, but I would have preferred not to have just a set menu. Especially when there are diners that have food restrictions.

It’s really nice place. It was Father’s Day, and we arrived a few minutes before our reservation. The hostess was very kind and efficient and allowed us to wait for our table at the bar. Zachary, our bartender, was absolutely amazing. He actually made our experience fabulous by starting us off with such great service. The food was really good, but a tad pricey. Overall, the service, food and beautiful view made it a very pleasant experience. Thank you!

This was our 4th or 5th visit to the Pump House in 2 years . While the service is pleasant it’s consistently slow and the food has some great moments but is inconsistent at best .

Good and service were great, and very accommodating to kids. My 5 yo commented that our server was a very kind person 🥰 It was a bit loud, but we were outside and we have young kids so that's not necessarily a bad thing! We will certainly be back.

This was our first visit it was nice. We really didn't know what to choose as far as food. We picked fried okra (on a scale of 1 to 5. 5 being the best. We score it as a 2) Meatloaf (score it a 1) and I had BBQ (score it a 4). The onions and potatoes were the best off of the meatloaf. Waitress was nice. Locations and seating was perfect!!! I definitely enjoyed the atmosphere and will be back to try another dish!!!

The menu was very limited. The online menu showed crab cakes and we were disappointed to find they had been taken off the menu. My friends ordered the fried green tomatoes and they did not like them at all. The feature meal of the day reminded us of macaroni and cheese except the cheese was replaced with a sprinkling of salmon. The service was good but slow. we were there over 3 hours just for a regular lunch meal.

We loved sitting next to the plexiglass and being able to watch the activity on the Catawba River.
The food was excellent. Our server was great- so pleasant and efficient. The manager came by and checked on us too.
This was my fourth time eating there and it has always been a great experience.
