Met here for lunch based on the website mentioning they serve Thai food here. This is no longer true, but the ambience and our superb sandwich made up for this lack. The inside consists of several smallish rooms; quite cozy and decorated with fun. The outside has two layers; one upper deck that is shaded and a second ground level seating area. Both lushly decorated with plants, pond and the soothing sound of moving water. Plenty of parking in the back. very pleasant waitress who brought us water with lemon the minute we sat down. We took crispy chicken caesar wraps (lots more chicken than filler) with homemade potato chips for a hike at Ricketts Glen. Will definitely go back when in the area.

Stopped in for dinner. Food was good and very reasonably priced. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

The restaurant is no longer serving Thai food and the menus on the website are not up to date.

I thought it would be a bit of a "dive" based on the name & outside appearance, but it was actually a quite nice local family restaurant with a fairly extensive American food menu. No dislikes at all.

yaap, very nice food with awesome decoration at the place. They have huge collection of number-plates from so many states...and few from outside USA, too. Very nice service...and food was awesome. Being vegetarian, I had no expectations - but they had couple of choices and a really big portions of food.
We took lunch there while our stay at Ricketts glen state park campsite. Its around 20-30 mins. from the campsite.

There are not too many choices for breakfast in the Benton area . We went to the restaurant by the bridge first. We left, the flies were attacking us and we waited about 3 mins. for a waitress to come to our table, so we left. We found Old Filling Station on TripAdvisor. The building is an old home and decorated so. The staff was pleasant, restrooms were clean. The tables and rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was average. The prices were average. Give it a try, its not bad and its not exceptional its just slightly above average.
