This restaurant has a good reputation in Victoria, TX. We had a different experience. The food was mediocre. The service was not good either. The view is high and wonderful. However, the bar makes excellent margaritas. Order the best one they make. Sitting at the bar is fun too.

Pump house was a very good dining experience, but the same can be said for many places. This ended up being the most expensive meal of my entire 68 years. I have eaten just as well but at for much much less. The room was very nice in an old pump house located in a park. There is balcony seating overlooking the river, we avoided that because there was gong to be a live band, and we were afraid it was going to be too loud. The wait staff did a very fine job. Yes, I liked everything about it... except the cost.

Just had lunch on the patio at the pump house restaurant. The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful, and our waitress, Paige, was exceptional. The s’mores desert was delicious James and Kay from Port Lavaca
