    We had a family gathering yesterday with 12 of us. We had a great time! The food was excellent, as well as the service. It was a bit loud with the high ceilings, but not intolerable. We have been pleased whenever we have eaten at the Pump Station.

    My hot sandwich was cold. Waitress took it back kitchen made a new one which by the time it came the other members of my party were done eating and it was still cold. The waitress was great, kitchen not so much! I would still recommend the restaurant but definitely not the Gobbler sandwich!

    The food was hot and fresh this time and the wait staff was amazing as always. The only problem this time was that towards the end of our meal, the waitress came and told us they were closing the restaurant due to a water leak in the electrical room. Made for a little bit of uneasiness but we enjoyed our stay anyway.

    I was greeted immediately and promptly seated. I haven’t been here in quite a few years. Previously I recall an excellent menu, meals and service. I chose the Albany Pump Station due to its proximity to the Palace Theater. My impression is that the menu has been somewhat scaled down. Service was OK, however my dates meal arrived with the wrong potato selection, only to find out that the ordered mashed potatoes weren’t available. I ordered my steak medium rare. It arrived medium well. The food arrived lukewarm. There was a strong breeze from fans that may have contributed to that. In the future plate covers might be recommended while transporting food from the kitchen to table. Overall my experience was pleasant, but I was a bit disappointed. The quality and attention to detail seemed to be lacking.

    Food was good but right after our appetizers arrived to the table our food arrived so the table was crowded and we had little time to eat and enjoy the apps before our meals. I made a reservation and listed that it was a birthday celebration and no one acknowledged a birthday or offered a birthday dessert or anything so I’m not sure why they even ask if it’s a special occasion. It was also pretty cold in the dining room. We asked if we could sit in a booth and were told we could in the bar area but not in the dining area even though there were several booths open in the dining area. A lot of the beers were out of stock which was disappointing.

    Lovely old converted brick pumphouse. Beer is brewed on-site. For appetizers, we had the fried cheese bites (good) and the cheddar onion ale soup (outstanding). For the main course, we had the salmon and risotto (very good) and the seafood mac n' cheese (excellent). Their doppelbock draft dark beer was excellent. The service was excellent. Just one gentle suggestion: The main courses were delivered to the table just a minute after the appetizers were delivered. Need to space these out. Everything was nice and hot so being doubled up was not an issue. The service was very good. The pricing was reasonable. Very easy access and on-site parking.

    March 19th after the Albany St. Patrick's Day Parade we wanted to dine out. Pearl Street was a bustling zoo, but C.H. Evans was reasonably calm, even with a constant flow of diners in and out. We were seated promptly, and Kelsey was our attentive server. She was patient with us as we began with a variety of beers. We shared a really nice plate of mac-and-cheese bites before a chopped brisket sandwich, fish-and-chips, and mac-and-cheese entrees. We even had appetite and time enough to share a piece of carrot cake for dessert. The Pump Station never disappoints, and we already look forward to our return, it being an easy walk from our downtown residence!

    Everything was great until the end. Waitress asked the manager to assist me with a coupon. 15 minutes later, the manager never showed up. I needed to go to the bar to get the bartender to help me. The manager was too concerned with watching the food coming out, and not watching the floor at all.

    Open Table reservations worked great. I included a request through the app asking the restaurant to include a note on the table wishing one of our party a HAPPY RETIREMENT and they did! The dining room was full and there were only 3 wait staff and they did a good job handling it all. Not an easy task as there were several larger parties >5. Nice place to eat. Great food and price. Parking is weird though. We weren't really sure where we could park and I don't think the adjacent lot is free.
