The Pump House Ratings and Reviews
We went to the Pump House to celebrate Christmas(Belatedly)and Valentine's Day. We ate until we were ready to burst. We've eaten at the Pump House before and have always loved it. This was no exception. I did miss the shrimp but the rest of the meal was just excellent! The only thing I'm sad about is that we don't have enough money to eat there more often!
Our server had 3 big tops, which meant that tip was worth more than mine. We saw him a lot as he walked on by us. Never asked how we were doing or how our food was. Never asked if we needed anything. Waited a long time for refills twice. It would have been nice to feel like we were important too. The food was delicious though.
The Pump House's brunch is the best all you can eat buffet in Fairbanks. It may not have the biggest selection of dishes, but all of them are beautifully done and delicious. I love their creme brûlées! If I have a visitor in town over the weekend, this is where I always take them.
Always love it but realized there were 4 of us adults and a child. I did not eat. On a special Competitor diet but was charged anyway. I did not eat at all.
My guy Ivan Sharp paid using his credit card and I asked him after we had already left. It was Sunday Beunch on the 2nd.
On my first visit to Fairbanks looking for the northern lights, I found this gem. Great food and a wonderful ambience. I had to return and try the food again on my second trip and I was not disappointed. They lived up to how I remembered it to be. I will be a repeat customer as long as they keep doing what their doing.
My little family & I LOVE The Pump House!!! That being said, on Sunday, we had a really nice and polite server but we ended up asking other server's to refill this or that. And we got really cold. But we still really love The Pump House and will continue to make this our go to when we can.
Open air type of seating with a vibrant bar scene. The restaurant is on the water, and even though the weather wasn't quite right for an outside seating, the inside seating was nice. The whole place had a lot of historical pieces all over the restaurant. I liked the decor, and it was quite big as well.
Place was recommended as a spot for local history. Used to be a Pump station. Location right on Chena Eiver. Very pretty. Staff was attentive. My favorite part was all the antiques decorating the building. You have to take a walk around restaurant to see. Food was very good. Was well prepared. Do recommend.
The food was fantastic, as usual - great filet and perfectly cooked. Seating was good and timely. We like the web-based reservation system. Service was great and we appreciate the jobs being provided to school students. Great wine list. We go to talk and enjoy a quiet meal; a quiet seating is important as in your setting - thanks. Plenty of room for seating. The historic atmosphere is incredible. Much appreciated.
Seafood selection was AWESOME!!! Food was outstanding and the service OUTSTANDING!!! Highly recommend making reservations. It was a great way to end our vacation to Alaska. Easy to find, you will need to have transportation or take a taxi but it is truly worth it.
