I'm new to town and my 13 year old and I have been trying a variety of restaurants as we settle into TC and wait for my husband to finish his work in Florida and join us. Filling Station is a fun find. It's housed in a former railway station, near Boardman Lake, just south of downtown and offers a... More

Great pizza and a very cool setting. My wife and I visited on our third anniversary and while it is not a romantic place by any stretch. It just had a very cool vibe we got our pizza by the railroad tracks, they had live music and all the servers / bar tenders where very down to earth. Would strong... More

Was in tc for one night and wanted to find a good restaurant. They are #1 for a reason. Very cool setting. Staff is EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. Ordered a pizza with the spicy sauce mixed with marinara and it did not disappoint. Beer is awesome. Will definitely being going back next time I'm there.

The beer selection is ever changing and it's fun to try new ones. The pizza is thin crust, stone oven and wonderful. I like the Wolverine, even though I'm a Spartan fan. The salads are fresh and go great with the pizza. Order at the bar then eat inside or out.

Loved the outside seating - it was a perfect night and the big open area in the back was perfect. Pizza was very good, but the dessert pizza was AWESOME. Highly recommend

If you want a night out with good food, good beer and good music, the Filling Station is the place. We have been there several times and it is ALWAYS great. If your guests like pizza this is a no brainer. Take a look at their specials on the board - they're different but can be unexpectedly good. Don't forget... More

This brewpub is in an amazing location overlooking the Boardman Lake and beside an all but abandoned train track. The beer is first rate and there are a bout a dozen fine brews on tap at any time. The food menu is limited to pizza, salad, and a few apps such as hummus. There is no need for anything else... More
