Always have loved the pump house. The Seafood risotto was amazing. Our server was friendly and bubbly and made for a great experience. Love the atmosphere of the old building. Noise level was a little high but die down after the dinner rush. We will definitely be back and I recommend this to anyone visiting. Especially in the summer.
Great place for dinner. Enjoyed the ambiance, service was excellent.
Great place to eat while in Fairbanks
My wife and I went to the Pump House for a rare date night on 2/18/18. Ambience was nice, our server was absolutely great. Ordered a spinach and Artichoke dip appetizer that was great. We both ordered steaks from the menu, she ordered a New York and I ordered a rib eye. We both ordered our steaks medium. When the steaks arrived, both steaks were extremely rare. We were hesitant to send them back, but after overhearing a lady from a nearby table send hers back for the same reason, we opted to send ours back as well. Again, our server was great and apologetic for the undercooked (for our taste) meal. When she brought the steaks back, the rib eye I had ordered was in fact cooked to medium and tasted delicious. My wife’s steak however was still severely undercooked. We didn’t send hers back for a 2nd time, but for $35-$40 for a steak we expected a steak cooked to our liking. The flavor was great, the sides were perfect, however I would be hesitant to order another steak from their menu.
Food is spectacular and the service is top notch. Historic building in a beautiful setting in both summer and winter.
The seafood risotto can’t be improved upon. Great food and service.
Tables are way too small. Table for four fits two. 3 if you are small
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.
Wonderful historic atmosphere. Excellant wait staff. Truly Alaskan fare with comfort food favorites. An more than exceptional place.
Excellent restaurant! The King Crab and Seafood Stew were fantastic. Scallop app and spinach salad also very good. Attentive service. Pump House and Lavelle's Bistro the two best in Fairbanks.
the Alaskan Salmon Tower is Amazing
te service is great
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.
Great food and incomparable custome service and hospitality.
