The Pump House restaurant on the Catawba River opened for business Thursday and was quickly sold out for dining, restaurant owners said.
Most of the seating for Thursday, Friday and Saturday has been reserved and only a few reservations remain for Sunday’s brunch, said co-owner Colby Mosier.
The restaurant is located in the former pump house that served the Celanese manufacturing plant. The address is 575 Herrons Ferry Road and accessible through the Riverwalk development. The bar opens at 4 p.m. Thursday.
Owners Elliott Close and Mosier say the tablecloth restaurant features Southern cuisine, a two-story wine storage cabinet that holds more than 900 bottles and a rooftop bar that includes 12 craft beers – six from South Carolina, six from North Carolina.
The owners had hoped to be open for Christmas and then Valentine’s Day, but construction delayed the opening.
Regular dining hours are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 5 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m for Sunday brunch.
