Our family enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch here. The historic building is very pretty inside, and there is pleasant outdoor seating as well. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The kids meal was a little higher than some places ($7) but was enormous and well done. Service was friendly and efficient; my coffee never got cold. The surrounding historic West... More

For a long while, the Filling Station was our favorite restaurant in town. It's still up there and rarely disappoints. If you are only going to go once (visiting) or are dining there for the first time, the shrimp & grits are the best I've ever had. After a long time ordering shrimp & grits at countless other restaurants--as the... More

I give this restaurant a 5 because they never cease to please me. Everything I've ever eaten at 4th Street Filling Station has been tasty and high quality. They train their servers well, because service is always excellent. It's always a pleasing experience.

Excellent food and wonderfully pleasant, attentive and helpful staff. Decor is interesting but is not overdone in the refurbishment of the old Filling Station.

Knowing it would be a busy Friday night, I decided on an "early" dinner here since it is near my house and the weather is getting cold. I had the Pork Tenderloin and it was yummy. The service was good as always, and the prices are commensurate with what you order. There are less expensive options and are also very... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Winston, so I am biased. They never disappoint, and they sure didn't last Friday. There were 8 of us and the service was great, as always, the good was great,may always. Please go there and enjoy!

I've been eating here with the family for years and it is always a welcomed experience. The service can go up or down, but in total I've no complaint there. The food is overall pretty good. For me, however, they excel with their filet steaks. I've taken large business groups there and over a dozen of us order the filets... More

Service was very friendly and attentive. Draft beer was good (nice fresh IPA recommended by the waiter). Grilled salmon salad was OK; nothing fancy, but with a good selection of dressings. Cheese ravioli and honey glazed ham were OK. Desserts were vey very good. But the "sticky" table (no table cloth, and my arms were sticking to the table) and... More

I ate here for lunch and ordered a wrap. It was terrible! I was very disappointed in my lunch. I barely ate anything on the plate which should have been a clue for our server. He did not care just took the plate and went about his business. There are too many other good restaurants in Winston to settle on... More
