Fairbanks Restaurants: 33 reviews and 15 photos

The Pumphouse is on the banks of the Chena river just downstream from Pikes. The food is good but the atmosphere is awesome. The deck is great in the summertime. If you have a canoe you can pull it out of the water on their lawn.
It can get a little crowded in the summertime.

The Pumphouse is an older restaurant and is a historical marker in Fairbanks.
