Worth a Stop

Quite a selection of IPAs but not in a style that I fancy. I won't hold that against them since everyone's liking is a little different. I had a flat bread pizza, very yummy. Service was excellent.

Located in the old train depot-great atmosphere. Easy to find right next to the library with nice view of the lake. Perfect setting for a brewpub-great beer, great pizza and great prices! Awesome menu selection with unique combinations. Always visit twice when in town!

Up here, it's hard to find true, thin crust pizza so flatbread often has to do. That's what the Filling Station offers and it's really good. The varieties and the special attention to the details mean that you will probably find something good as well as a craft beer to balance it all off. Friendly service and salads all make... More

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 pizza, but still... 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
