“Friendly place with good eats”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Our server for our meal, a Sunday early dinner, was friendly to the point of solicitude, but even if he hadn't been so attentive, our party of six would have liked the casual vibe and good food. The Filling Station serves up Italian-style dishes, such as Tuscan Chicken and tortellini, and American standards, such as pork tenderloin and a surf-and-turf combo, with equal aplomb. Calamari and spinach-artichoke dip were conventional but well done appetizers, and we enjoyed the Australian wine recommended by our server. They were out of three out of the five desserts listed on the menu, but two that we ordered, chocolate pecan pie and lava cake, were suitably decadent. We left in a great mood!

“4th Street Filling Station”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great place for a large group or just couples or family.. The best area in which to have dinner, lunch, or brunch is the outdoor courtyard. It is warmed by heaters in winter, cooled by fans in summer, and beautiful greenery and surroundings. a very pleasant dining experience!

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Old Filling Station is a wonderful place to take a friend for lunch. They have the best shrimp and grits I have eaten. Wait staff was excellent as well.

Food and service is great! Not much of a bar area but on warm days the patio is outstanding and very inviting.

“Very popular and usually good”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I like it more for the ambiance than the food. As the name implies, the building was once a filling station, and the exposed brick walls add a nice touch. Also a big fireplace, nice in winter. As other reviewers have noted, the shrimp and grits is the signature dish. I'm not a grits person, so I usually order fish or seafood pasta. It's consistently good, although not very innovative, and portions have gotten a bit smaller over the past few years. Prices are generally reasonable. The real weakness is the service. Sometimes it's great, other times you have to trip the server to get noticed.
