Pump House Restaurant & Saloon

796 Chena Pump Road
Fairbanks AK 99709
A Historical Monument
The Pump House as you see it today was reconstructed in the spring of 1978. Our purpose was to attempt to recreate and 1890's "Gold Rush" motif and atmosphere which was associated with the "Rip Roaring" but still Victorian era in Fairbanks. Everywhere you look you will see relics from the rich and illustrious past. 
Turn of the Century Atmosphere
All the furnishings are authentic and very old. Most are genuine antiques and a few are over 150 years old. One of the pool tables is an original Brunswick "Union League" built in 1898 and shipped to Dawson City "The Klondike" in 1900. The table worked its way down the Yukon River following the "Rush", stopping at Eagle, Circle and finally resting in Rampart in Ira Wisner·s Trading Post. The solid mahogany bar was built in Kansas City, then shipped and reassembled on-site by Mr. Lee Dunn. 
First Quality Cuisine
Our food service is "Alaskan Style", which means the combination of the freshest products possible with our unique culinary heritage. In season you will find the herbs we use are all grown in our chefs garden right outside the restaurant. Fresh Alaskan Salmon is delivered to our dock by floatplane. Our prime beef is aged 21 days to insure maximum flavor. The Senators Saloon features "The World's Most Northern Oyster Bar" where the succulent oysters are flown in fresh from Seattle on Alaska Airlines. The wine list features the best wines of the Pacific Northwest. 
Alaskan Hospitality
The atmosphere is easy and relaxed. Come as you are and sit on the deck overlooking the historic Chena River and watch the Riverboat Discovery pass and the float planes land.
