Dinner was great and the manager Robby (?) was present and greeting, taking care of guests. Was a very nice thing to see. A couple behind us was having an anniversary and he brought them champagne! Each time we have been the food has not disappointed. We will continue to come back!
Went to Pump House to celebrate my wife’s birthday with my parents. As always we had an outstanding experience.
For the first time we sat on the fourth floor, private dining. A smaller area, we’ll set-up if you were have a party or business dinner.
Elizabeth was our waiter assistant (what do you call that person?) and Zack was our waiter. Both did a great job. Zack made a few recommendations and ensured that my Mom was able to eat something that didn’t upset her stomach (she has a lot of spice sensitivity).
We have already recommended going there to two of our friends that have upcoming birthdays.
Very great service and food, Ryan was a very good server and has served me very well!
This was a new find for me, met a friend for dinner on Thursday night and came back again with my boyfriend for Friday night. Love love the food! Drinks are very creative and oh so Yummie!
Food and experience was fabulous!
Outstanding service. Very nice
We love the pump house! We come often and it is always amazing service and terrific food. Whether you come for apps, drinks, dinner or bunch you can't go wrong! I would recommend a reservation for dinner or brunch services.
Mother’s Day. Perfect dinner, service and atmosphere as always. Keep up the great work
We have always enjoyed the ambiance, food and attention of the personnel. Only disappointment was that the she crab soup was not on the menu.
Mother’s Day Brunch!
It was a very nice meal. The server was attentive. The food was hot and delivered in a timely manner
I recommend this restaurant
Everything was wonderful! My husband and teenage boys had a great time and most importantly amazing food!
We had a wonderful experience at The Pump House. The food and our server were superb. Also, the noise from the highway was barely noticeable and the view from the rooftop was beautiful.
My mom enjoyed with you had the full menu available on Mother’s Day
Excellent service and food. Menu was a special Mother's Day three course meal, exceptional value for the food that was offered. I would recommend this restaurant.
Mother’s Day with my wife, daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law
Excellent food and service as always. Would highly recommend.
Excellent and attentive service! We were a party of 6 celebrating my birthday and they even allowed us to bring in a cake from home! We enjoyed the tuna, salmon, pork and evening special. Appetizers were delicious! We had the crab cakes and some of the best we have had. The steak and blue cheese appetizer was also amazing!
Delicious food, friendly and courteous service, and a fantastic atmosphere overlooking the river. Another wonderful dining experience at the Pump House!
The food at the Pump House is always very tasty, well prepared, well presented and the service is top notch. Have been here over a dozen times and have never been disappointed in either the service or the food. Very nice every time.
Our server Kiana was phenomenal, professional and attentive. The manager ensured my husband's steak was properly cooked, he was polite and had a great sense of urgency. We will be back with the whole family.
The vibes were so nice and we sat at the rooftop bar and it was absolutely perfect! The wind was up a little so the menus and plastic from the straws were flying but besides that, sitting on the water was so beautiful! The servers were so nice and great with recommendations on the menu. The food was to die for! We will
definitely be back soon.
I had the special which was Chilean sea bass and it was excellent! The grits they have with cheese are delicious! Great cocktails...I think mine was a pear martini! Very yummy!
Amazing atmosphere and great service with a view! Outside has a great view of the Catawba River! Highly recommended!
Have been before, but this was not the best visit. There was a private party that claimed the "good" rooftop space which was different than the communication I got when I booked. I get that businesses need to find the best way to make money, but we were relegated to a weird corner downstairs. The server and staff were overwhelmed and non-apologetic. I don't want to ding them for having too little staff, but a "sorry about the wait" or situation would have gone a long way.
This was a very disappointing experience. I had heard so many good things about the Pump House but my experience was anything but that, starting with the hostess who was anything but welcoming. My husband had the elk chops, which friends of ours raved about. They had absolutely no flavor at all. A friend had the pheasant special which also had little flavor and overall said the dish was not good. I had scallops which were ok, but they were maybe room temperature at best. We also had calamari and black and blue beef as appetizers. Again, the calamari was just fair. The beef was pretty good. Our server wasn't able to offer much help with the menu, stating management only allows servers to sample the menu items when they are first introduced, otherwise they have to pay for them. Unfortunately not a restaurant I would return to.
We were on the patio where there are 4 tables. It was loud and i felt too close to other diners. Two of our meals were not done correctly, but then fixed. Food was very good. Table too small for 4 people with drinks and food.
Ours was a unique dining experience in a beautiful setting....service was excellent and food was good.
Thank you very much,
Amazing place to eat, but service wasn’t great. The waitress was clearly overwhelmed and became rude when stesssed.
Great first time experience will definitely be going again!!! Great service great food great atmosphere!
Was not impressed. Requested a "water view" seat outside, we sat against the wall outside, no view from our seat. I did not think the food was worth the money, just ok. My husband's steak was raw, asked for medium. Poor service, I saw the bar tender pour my second glass of wine into carafe for waitress, and it literally sat there for 10 mins, I finally went to the bar tender and asked for it myself. As soon as I got it, my dinner had arrived, I like wine before dinner, not during. Oh well, we won't return here.
Great ambience eating on the covered terrace overlooking the river. Wonderful server. Out of the ordinary menu selections. Enjoyed very much!
Well worth it.
Great food and exceptional service from Charles, our waiter.
Requested through Open Table App to have patio dining to impress our out of state guests. I remembered my first visit to Pump House long after our visit from Upstate NY. We just retired here and definitely were thrilled to have our guest join us “ Roof Top” in the glass enclosed dining room over looking the River. Great dinner, service and five star impression for our guests. Thank you for fulfilling our reservation request! It was a GREAT evening . One our guest and we will long remember! We love the Pump House!

Beautiful ambiance on the rooftop bar overlooking the river. Delectable food that looked and tasted great. I will definitely be back! 😀
This was not what I expected....much nicer and upscale! The food was amazing, the drinks were delicious and the table overlooking the river just made for the perfect date night!!
Really enjoyed the ambiance and quality of the employees. All were very helpful. Beautiful evening with super sunset and the fireplace added to the evening. my dinner was very good our server was outstanding.We will be back soon.
