Great pizza

Great thin crust wood fired oven pizza. Like that there are a lot of options for sauces and toppings. It is great to have pizza with a base besides tomato. Loved the garlic base. Salad was good as well.

GO here. Eat their pizza. Drink their beer. You won't regret it! We stumbled upon this place while on a weekend holiday in TC. It was the best place we stopped during our trip! The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. They took their time to explain the beers to us and ask us questions about what we liked. The... More

Visited the Filling Station in November with a large group (16 people) and we had a great experience. The service was very helpful and fast, and more importantly the pizza and beer were both delicious. I enjoyed the self-service process because it seemed to make it easier to accommodate a large group.

We were visiting Traverse City in September, but still wanted a bar with outdoor seating, which were having trouble finding. We met some people who recommended the Filling Station and it was perfect. It had good beer, good beer, and fast service.

The pizza and salad were DELICIOUS! Order at the bar and then find a table. A pizza and salad served 2 people with nothing to take home. Perfect for us. The beers offered quite a few IPAs, but as we aren't IPA fans we still found several that looked intriguing. I didn't realize TC had become such a craft-beer mecca... More
