Description: Filling Station coast to coast American restaurant and bar, has been created by a team of people who genuinely love good quality food, drinks and good times! No doubt you're thinking, well doesn't everybody want that? It's true many people do, but we have genuinely struggled to find somewhere that actually delivers all of these things. So our solution was simple - let's do it ourselves, the result is Filling Station.

Went for lunch on Sunday with my daughter. Place was quiet and cold. menu is limited but the staff were friendly and cheerful. The food was alright. The credit card machines weren't working (and we were told they had not been working on the previous evening).

We have eaten at Filling Station in Stirling on a number of occasions and will continue to do so. There is a good choice of food which is always well-cooked. The staff are cheery and helpful, without being annoyingly so! Nothing is too much trouble. My only criticism would be to get rid of that awful Stella 4 and replace it with the original Stella - everybody's favourite lager!

Located just off the main street the Filling Station is an ideal location to re-charge at lunch. Probably for that reason it is always fairly busy.

But saying that even when fairly quiet by restaurant standards the staff always seem to be rushed off their feet and it can take an age to get a table, then the same wait again to get an order taken.

It has a really nice atmosphere and some of the memorabilia on the walls are fantastic. You get plenty of time to check it out fully anyway.

Food is good once it eventually turns up, if a little on the small side for an American restaurant. Prices seem a bit steep with all the negative aspects taken into account.

We'd never heard of Filling station prior to our visit to Scotland. This Stirling restaurant was fantastic. An American theme with lots of memorabilia on the walls to look at. We had the burgers which were delicious. The bread baps were soft and fresh and the beef was yummy and meaty. I felt like I had a healthy burger with all the yummy salad trimmings in it. The chunky chips were very tasty. They also have a junior menu and the kids get a sticker, drawing pack so a great restaurant to take the kids. The staff were really friendly and attentive. Each waitress we had were super efficient, warm and welcoming and I have to say great with our 5 year old. I wish we have a Filling Station in Southampton!
