Our Story

Welcome to Pump Haus Pub & Grill – Your Locally Owned Dining Destination in Cedar Falls

At Pump Haus Pub & Grill, we take pride in being a locally owned and operated establishment, founded by passionate individuals who've dedicated their lives to the restaurant industry. Meet the faces behind the flavor: Johna and Bruce Petersen. With over two decades of experience, we embarked on our culinary journey in 2002 by opening the doors to this beloved Cedar Falls gem.

The name "Pump Haus" holds a special significance to us. It pays homage to Bruce's grandfather, PC Petersen, a visionary and one of the pioneering minds behind Viking Pump, where he contributed to the invention of the original pump. We cherish this connection to innovation and heritage, which inspires us every day.

For 21 years, we've been part of the vibrant Cedar Falls community, and it's been an incredible journey. We owe much of our success to the fantastic individuals who've joined our team over the years, transforming Pump Haus into the thriving establishment it is today.
