We were impressed with the Filling Station as soon as we arrived - what a neat set up! The service was fantastic from start to finish. We walked in and were asked if it was our first visit. When we said yes, they directed us to the bar, telling us we order up front and then sit anywhere we'd like.... More

The beer was by far the best in Traverse City. The pizza was unlike any pizza I have ever had, so good! The best part was one of the staff that managed the place, Amanda. She is so personable and such a key part of making our experience special. Make sure to ask how the business came about and the... More

During a two day stay in Traverse City we happened upon The Filling Station Microbrewery for lunch. So glad we did; I would definitely go back! Located in an old train depot, in an area that appears to be on the verge of an exciting development, the Filing Station has plenty of character. And coincidently, upon our arrival, the train...

The pizza was good and beer was basic. I would say its pricey for the size of the pizza but the flavor profiles of the pies are inventive and tasty. The pub style concept is confusing and the service was terrible. My husband and I were on vacation and willing to sit and enjoy the band and have one more... More

We ordered salad, 2 pizzas and beer. Everything was great and we were happy to bring home the pizza leftovers. The staff was great and very friendly. We love the old train station and the décor was very cute. Will go back again and bring our friends and family next time.

went for the craft beers that they make and enjoyed brick oven flatbread pizza. Pizza was amazing. The building is really cool and the woman that waited on us was wonderful! Will definitely go back!

The food and beer are good but not very filling. The crust is extremely thin and not sturdy enough to hold the toppings. The menu doesn't offer much variety (no breadsticks---flat bread pizza and salad only). The staff was very friendly though.
