Poking around in the car one evening, we came across The Filling Station. Stopped in, ordered two Drafts, a Caesar Salad and a Pizza. The Salad was huge and two of us could not finish it before the Pizza was served. Wonderful Salad and one of the best thin crust Pizzas we have ever tasted. This is a great place... More

We stopped here for lunch and ate outside, did a beer flight and one of the pizzas. The patio was nice and breezy and service was fairly quick. The flight was a good way to sample their beers.

Really enjoyed this spot as we went there as a last minute decision. The staff is really friendly, and willing to help you out with beer selections as well. Loved the pizza and the outdoor patio! Will definitely go back.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for lunch. We loved the repurposing of a railroad station and enjoyed that motiff inside. The pizza was perfect. I had a flight of beers to find the ones I really liked. Luckily I liked most of small samples and had to make a choice of what I wanted for a pint. There's a... More

Pub style dining, so you order everything at the bar and then sit wherever you like. Outside is family style picnic table seating overlooking the train tracks. I'm not a fan of hoppy beers, I enjoyed the Wellington wheat and the kolsch. Pizza is good, thin crust, brick oven. Nice atmosphere too. Authentic Irish band inside the night we visited.

My husband and I decided to try The Filling Station while visiting Traverse City. My husband considers himself to be a pizza connoisseur and he was not disappointed. We tried both The Spartan and The Woverine. I also had a beer sampler which was a lot of fun. Aside from the great food, a standout to the experience was the... More

We went here on a Friday night and it was pretty crowded with a solo guitarist playing fun oldies. The atmosphere is super casual, kid and dog friendly, with outdoor community tables and benches. A couple of sandboxes kept the kids busy while we ordered. It's situated along the old abandoned train tracks. You have to go I. To order... More

We ate here on a Saturday night, so they had a good live band. They had outside picnic table style seating next to the train tracks. A plus for us were the 2 sand boxes and toys. The had an ample selection of craft beer and great pizza. I'd recommend for anyone with kids. We'll be back.

While in the area, we wanted to visit a microbrewery and sample local beers along with lunch. There were 10 in our group and they were able to easily accommodate us and serve us fairly quickly. The beer selection was good and some in the group enjoyed the beer flights in order to sample. We had several delicious salads including... More

We ate here with friends on our way out of TC. One of our friends has some significant food allergies, which they were able to accomodate without batting an eye. It was really refreshing since other places had not been so accommodating. We had the Spartan pizza, which was fab and shared the nutella dessert pizza. The beer was great,... More
