Great place to grab a beer and some grilled food. Place is popular so service is a bit slow sometimes.

The Pumpstation is a restaurant on Lake Zurich with great views and crap service. The weather was great today, and we went there to chill out. We ordered two beers and noticed the glasses were dirty. The waitress acted like it was a total inconvenience that I asked her to replace the dirty glasses. She took them with a grudge, then came back with two glasses that had foam dripping from them. After some hoo-ha where I made it clear that we were not going to put up with crap behavior, she finally brought us two glasses that at least had the appearance of being clean. Another incident involving hygienic handling also occurred, but the only thing really worth mentioning is that the staff sucks and even the views of Lake Zurich are not worth wasting money on this kind of low-class service.

You go there... for many things, the view, the BBQ, the folks walking past.

Pumpstation is basically a kitchen right at the lake of Zurich's promenade with seating under clear sky. Offering a selection and barbecue, salad, and fish. Oh, and beer & wine. In Zurich, once the sun is out the people are on the street. And Pumpstation is on the hot spots for your Sunday walk.

Avoid it when... it's raining; Pumpstation is simply closed. And, if you are on date; it's never quite and hot boyz and chicks are continuously passing by!
