Great meal in a no nonsense space

Aside from Stella's, this is my favorite place to eat in TC. Great food, simple space, good music. What's not to love? Pizza crust is delish: thin crust. And not too cheesy. Real food! Try it. You won't be sorry!

We were told to come here by a local and it didn't disappoint. Centrally located and kid friendly, this brewery has a great outdoor dining area adjacent to the (non-operating) train tracks. There are a couple sandboxes to entertain kids while waiting for their deeelicious flatbreads- such a genius idea! Adults can conversate while drinking one of their yummy IPA's,... More

Great beers all made in house. Pizzas are super thin - like I like them- and served hot. The toppings are fresh. On a nice night eating out back can't be beat.

Every time I travel to Traverse City I make it a point to go to the Filling Station for Flat Bread pizza and their own crafted beer. It is an old Railway Station converted to restaurant and pub along the old railway line and Bike trail. I highly recommend this place for a relaxing meal.

The Filling Station is a very popular local place. Their specialty is thin crust pizza. The food is really good. My issues with the restaurant are that it is a seat yourself place and you go up to the bar to order. I'm not sure what the problem is with waitresses taking your order and a host/hostess seating patrons, but... More

Every time we go to TC, we have to stop by The Filling Station! The pizzas, dessert pizzas and beers are all delicious.

Great pizzas, beer and very friendly staff. Open until 11 pm on a Monday. Every staff member we came across while walking into the patient area greeted us. Family friendly. Great outside eating area. Children's garden across the railroad tracks is a nice place for a walk after eating.

We came here with 3 generations, including our 2 yo niece. The pizza was delicious. Great spices. We really enjoyed the Memphis & the Stoker. The Eurail salad was large & very well done. The beers were a nice compliment to the meal, although a bit heavy & hoppy. The sandbox is perfect for kids. We had a lovely evening... More

I liked the atmosphere but only had Flatbread pizza or salad for food. Kids have an option of pb&j or mac and cheese. I wished they would've had more food choices. We got 2 pizzas but there wasn't much to them. Nothing special. Didn't try the brews since we had our kids with us.

We hit this place with our three year old and baby in tow. Staff was super helpful and friendly. The pizza was delicious and they let us mix and match on the same pie so our little guy had a couple of slices up his alley. There is also about 20 beers on tap. Order a flight, then pick your... More
