Great combinations

In a suburb location at the old train station, the establishment offers you great dining inside and out. Best to take in the warm air and listen to live music in the summer, but there's always good food and drink inside. Some amazing bets on tap and usually at least ten to try. Not NY or Chicago... read more

A few of us stopped in for lunch. We ordered a few flatbread pizzas. My favorite was the Wolverine but all were very good. I also had my first desert pizza ever. It was called the S'More Caboose and it tasted like the s'mores from around the family campfire. Rich, filling and delicious. Service was good and they were fast.... More

You start by ordering at the counter, and they will bring the food out to you. This probably makes it easier on the wait-staff, and you are able to get your drinks right at the bar without waiting. They have a lot of different beer choices, all of which sounded good. There are also several options for pizza, including a... More

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
