I think this little post is what started my husband and my affinity for good craft beers and out of the way little restaurants. He wears his Filing Station T-shirt nearly every weekend. This has quickly become our favorite TC dining spot. IN a typical 4 day weekend trip we will eat here 2-3 times! The pizza is fantastic. Unusual... More

Just a great hometown meeting place with outdoor seating in summer with veiws and the beer is exceptional, they have a few flat bread pizzas and the salads are very good.

I've been told the beer is good as well, but I am not a big beer drinker so can't confirm. I continue to ask them to please sell hard cider (we have several local cider makers in the area) but no luck so far. The pizzas are amazing and you can also choose from a long list to make your... More

We stopped here on on our way out of yesterday and everyone was so friendly, from the guys behind the bar to the people making the pizza and the locals drinking the delicious beer! My mom and I we're undecided on which beer we wanted and he let us try most of them while explaining the difference and then mixed... More

I am fortunate to live within easy walking distance of The Filling Station, so I go there frequently. I love it in the summer, when the long tables fill up with happy people sipping great beer and eating fresh amazing salads and innovative pizza. They stick to what they do best, and have perfected it.

I had one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten at the Filling Station. I was cooked over an open fire and it was delicious.

Visited there today, not for the first time. We shared a salad and pizza and each had a beer, (well ok I had two). The best IPA in town. All was very good. I love the historic nature of the building, the view, whether inside or out and the staff is just excellent, very very friendly.
