Good pizza and beer

My husband and I dined here recently. A server suggested that a pizza and salad would be the right amount of food and he was correct. We had the Cesar and the mushroom pizza and enjoyed both, we were surprised that there was no tomato sauce on the pizza (we should have read the menu with more... read more

Stopped in for lunch after reading some other Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. We shared the caesar salad (not that great, but you do get a lot for the price) and the stump jumper flatbread pizza (that equals a mushroom pizza). The pizza was excellent, no complaints from us. The track 8 beer (copper red rye) was fantastic too.

Awesome craft beers and very tasty food. Made for a nice lunch stop during our biking/kayaking tour. Each of the beers we tasted was excellent. We had a very well done caesar salad and a couple of exceptional pizzas

We enjoyed the Filling Station. They allow you to sample a few choices of craft beer before you decide on the one you like. The pizza's are great thin crust with creative ingredients.

We were here as part of a family get together and had several picnic tables outside. It was fun trying some different beers. Pizzas were good, but not your standard pepperoni or supreme. You could create your own too. Salads looked attractive. Kids had fun playing on the unused railroad tracks and sandbox. There's a children's garden (was closed in... More

Great beer, great pizza! Very nice staff. Didn't stay, I ordered take out but there's indoor/outdoor seating. Really cool old train station.

I enjoyed an evening at the Filling Station. The pizza was very good and each of the four beers I tried (golden ale, cherry wheat, Kolsch, and Pale Ale) was really good. If you want good pizza and brews in Traverse City then The Filling Station is a good choice.

We recently enjoyed dinner at The Filling Station while in Traverse City. Perched on one of the high tables with two other couples, we enjoyed the craft beer (my favourite one was the Bavarian wheat beer, which was light and refreshing) and pizza. Nice to see a vegan flat bread on the menu. It was real tasty. The other guests... More

This was the first stop in our Paddle for Pints brewery tour. Beer was great and the breakfast pizza was delicious. Definitely recommend.

Recently enjoyed this find in Traverse City. The only problem is that I was having some mobility issues & all they had available that night were tall bar rounds. Most of the low picnic type tables were reserved. We ordered the Stoker pizza , Caeser salad & beers. We loved the pizza & the salad was the best I've ever... More
