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!

I took a date here for a first date, and neither of us had eaten here before. We sat at a table on the third floor balcony overlooking the river. As the sun set over the water it was truly so beautiful! Then just as it got dark, the soft lighting on the tables and under the awning created a relaxing and romantic ambiance that was just perfect for the night. The food was plated very well and tasted delicious. It’s certainly not an inexpensive dining experience, however the atmosphere is definitely where you get the most value. It made for a very memorable night.

Met an old friend for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was inviting. The view was beautiful. I was just in town for the weekend, but I will definitely be back and will highly recommend it... definitely one of the best fine dining options in the Rock Hill area.

Terrible food..... and there was a hear in one of our entrees. The place is very nice, just for a cocktail, and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

We enjoyed celebrating Valentine’s with the special dinner offering. We are “regulars” and appreciated the special attention for Valentines!

First time trying this restaurant. Wife and I had reservations. Only waited about five min to be seated. Food and staff were excellent. Will definitely be back but maybe try brunch for more frequent dining as dinner is a little pricey for us to do frequently.

Over 25 minutes for an appetizer, filet ordered med rare came out with no pink in center. Took close to 10 minutes to let someone know, finally grabbed the beverage manager so he could take my gf’s steak back. Told us it would be out in 5-6 minutes and he was very sorry. Turns out it took over 10 minutes for a medium rare filet to come back out. Meanwhile my plate was cold while waiting for gf’s order to be redone. Server was great except he had inside and outside tables so he couldn’t give our table the attention we needed. He was very busy as we saw him running all over the place. Over $100 dinner, I’m highly disappointed. Should have went to a steakhouse for half the price........

Pump House is absolutely worth the drive from Uptown! We had the pre fixe menu for Valentine's Day dinner, and it did not disappoint. Great value ($85 per couple), and the food was spectacular, in perfect portions.

Service was wonderful, from the hostesses to our waitress to the management staff. Will definitely be back, although probably for lunch so we can get daylight views of the river!
