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!

We usually love this place and I’ve never been disappointed in either the quality of the food or in the service. Unfortunately tonight was an exception. Even my daughter who ordered off of the children’s menu wouldn’t eat her buttered pasta. My meal came out cold. I was excited for the pumpkin risotto, but it was very bland and the Cajun sauce did nothing to improve my cold fish.

The reviews sold us on the restaurant, but, unfortunately, the food did not meet our expectations. We ordered the crab cake appetizer, pork chop and salmon entrees, wine and cocktails. The crab cakes weren’t light and they were fairly mealy, the pork chop was pretty fatty and the salmon was okay, but not great. Also, nearly everything on the menu had some infusion or addition of beets, which seemed a bit strange, because If you aren’t a fan of beets it makes the menu fairly limiting. I don’t mind them, but the beet purée that accompanied the crab cakes was just off. It didn’t work. I normally don’t like to write such negative reviews, but this experience was pretty disappointing considering the price point of the menu and the prior reviews. Our drinks were excellent, so there’s that. Service was pretty good, too.

We were celebrating a birthday. They let us bring in a cake. Rob made sure the cake was put in the cooler and let our server Curtis know it was there. Curtis was wonderful! The food was excellent! Thanks for making my Mom’s 83rd birthday a very enjoyable experience!

$38 filet was overcooked--food was only warm--feeling is claustrophobic in setup of building.

I made reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday for the patio @ 6pm and did not get seated until 7:15pm. The calamari was too salty, the marinated pork chop was very dry and the apple crisp tasted like it was made with apples from a can. We were both very disappointed.

The only reason I gave the food 4 stars was because we ordered our steaks medium and they leaned toward rare. However we ate them and they were good. I wish I could remember our waiter’s name because he was great. A bit spendy ($158 plus tip for two) but it was very good. I’ve never had a bad experience there.

The Pump House has a beautiful setting. The service was good but the food came out in a strange order for a couple of our guests. The fried okra used to be sliced differently in the appetizer...now it is sliced lengthwise which is harder to eat and share. I had the meatloaf which was ok but not great. The others had similar comments. It was not as good as it was last time we ate there. The cornbread and peach butter were on point! Should have made a meal off of that!!

Our server, Brooke?, Was attentive, friendly and efficient! We were there to celebrate a friends upcoming wedding and our server added a few extra touches, like cranberries in the Prosecco to toast with, offered to take pictures – small touches that meant a lot! Service and food were top notch! We will definitely return soon

Went for dinner. Pork chop and salmon was bland. Needed a lot more flavor. Calamari was a bit over salty. Drinks and view was nice. Good place for probably just happy hour drinks and apps. Entree’s didn’t seem so promising
