I have eaten at the Filling Station before, but this time I tried something new. The salmon sandwich was delicious! It had just the right amount of everything and was seasoned to perfection. Can't wait to go back!

All expectations were met
Food and service were great and special request was honored. They were very busy the night I was there, but things went very smooth.

As always, excellent food
As always, excellent food and service. The only negative was we were seated outside in the covered area and it was very chilly. We asked that the heaters be turned on which they were but the table behind us (who were directly under the heaters) complained and had them turned off. Other than that a good place for 10 of us to eat on short notice.

My family has been to the Filling Station several times over the past two years. We were there on Saturday to celebrate my son's graduation from Wake Forest. We live in Greensboro and have found many nice restaurants in Winston that we like. The Filling Station is our favorite.

Great food. Staff attentive and our waiter was the best.
Would definitely go back. Best filet I have ever had.

Our party of 5 had the Napoleon Filet, stuffed Mahi, flank steak, fajita wraps, and Salmon salad. Everything was delicious! The bread with honey butter is perfect to munch on while we waited for our food and relaxed with beer and wine. Fourth Street Filling Station was busy but our server was attentive. We always enjoy sitting on the patio when weather permits.

We had a great time at the Filling Station as always. The food was delicious and sitting on the patio with friends in the evening is a beautiful experience.

Great dinner outside with the kid
My wife, 8 year old son, and I ate outside on their patio for dinner. The patio is fantastic -- a great feeling of outside with trees and a little fish pond without feeling right up against the street. The street itself is not very busy, being on the edge of downtown. The food was delicious. We had appetizers of crabcakes and southwestern fried wontons and generous entree salads. Our son had a cheeseburger he was very happy with and it came on a tray with fruit and a small brownie. Would definitely recommend.

Fun but not great
Great outdoor patio. Food and service good but not special. We will go back but probably for drinks and appetizers.

Wonderful Little Winston Salem Gem
My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Forth Street Filling Station. It was a lovely day for eating on the patio! I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was wonderful! Love this place!

We were blessed with beautiful weather so we could enjoy Old Fourth Street's lovely patio. The food was great. Our group enjoyed eggs Benedict, Crabcake eggs Benedict, and Salmon Salads, among other things. The fresh fruit and roasted potatoes sides were yummy. Consistently one of our favorite restaurants. Food is always good and the prices are quite reasonable.

Great brunch on the patio
We love dinner here. This was the first time for brunch and it was great. The food and service were excellent even with a large crowd for Father's Day. The salmon is my favorite here and I was excited to see it on the brunch menu as well.

Father's Day Brunch
It was very crowded when we arrived, and despite having reservations, we still waited past our reservation time for 15-20 minutes. It was hard to tell if the reservation mattered or if it was basically first come, first serve. Since it was Father's Day, that's probably understandable. Food was very good and the ambiance was very nice. It was hot outside, but the patio tables were shaded and comfy. Very nice. Our server seemed flustered when we first arrived but did a great job. Two people had crab benedict, which they both liked. One at our table had salmon salad and I had the veggie omelet. All very good. Wasn't crazy about the hash browns, as they weren't crispy, but the apples were great. Very good, overall.

Fourth Street Filling Station
Fourth Street Filling Station is now one of my favorites! My favorite is the shrimp and grits! Love the outdoor dining and great service!

Great for Casual Business Lunch
Had lunch here on the outdoor patio with two local businesspeople. We all ordered salads which had fresh ingredients and were attractively prepared. The server was friendly and attentive and made a recommendation to make the salmon on my salad blackened, which was a good recommendation. The patio is a nice place to seat and eat on a summer day.

Everything great except...
We had made our OT reservations for 4 many days in advance knowing they are busy on a Saturday night. Also requesting the patio, well in advance. A nice young server greeted us when we arrived a few minutes before our 7 reservation time. As he was taking us to our patio table, a huffy young hostess came up and said, oh no, they can't go there. I'm putting people with a reservation at that table. Of course the young man said well these people had reservations too. But the hostess could care less, and made us go back out to the sidewalk and wait till another table opened up. The young man was so apologetic (not his fault anyway). The host and hostess never apologized our cared about their screw up. Dreadful first impression for other couple!

We thoroughly enjoy the Filling Station for pleasant Sunday brunches on the outdoors patio, for comfort food dinners by the fire on cold winter evenings, and for wonderful business lunches... Heck, we enjoy it anytime.
The weather was rainy, so we couldn't eat outside. Sitting inside one must speak up to be heard over the crowd... this is not a quiet little corner bar, it's a noisy neighborhood restaurant.
We had the grouper and shrimp special, our son had the chicken fajita wrap. Everyone had plenty to eat, and enjoyed every bite. Total bill, with 6 glasses of each but no dessert: $120.

Nice diverse menu for lunch, to include a unique "quick lunch" menu where you select three items for a list. Indoor area not as nice as the outdoor patios, but despite the noisy environment, you can still talk. Would be a great choice if you like outdoor dining

Always a great meal. Our steaks
Always a great meal. Our steaks we're cooked exactly as we liked. The waitress was personable and conscience.

A Little Bit of Everything...
I am picky about food. I am picky about wine and I am a bit picky about ambiance. Taking all of that into account, I loved 4th Street Filling Station!! The food and wine were fantastic!! What a variety the menu offered and all of our meals were sensational. I would recommend this restaurant for catching a bite with your significant or getting together with a group. You will not be disappointed.

Great food and a great location!
We had dinner at Old Fourth Street Filling Station to celebrate our daughter's return to Wake Forest. Our table was ready at our requested reservation time. The food was excellent (awesome shrimp & grits!) and the service was outstanding. We'll be back again.

f illing station
the filling station was wonderful. I gave the service three stars because they forgot to give me my soup but everything was great except that.

Will go again
Great restaurant with good food and good service. We could have eaten indoors or outdoors and they had a great set up for outdoor dining. Will go back.

They were very busy for brunch, but our food was great and server tried really hard to make things great for us. Highly recommend the eggs Benedict, crab cake Benedict, chicken salad croissant, and salmon salad.

Food was great!!
Food was very well prepared and service was first rate. Busy weekend but didn't feel rushed. Parent's weekend a Wake Forest and they had several large groups with no trouble. Will definitely go back.

My only problem was that we
My only problem was that we were not seated under the tents with the heaters, but were close to the kitchens. This meant that we were pretty cold and felt cut off from the rest of the customers. Other than that it was a delightful experience. Food is always great there and we were not disappointed.

Great Food, but ..
Food was incredible, but the reservation made through open table was worthless. They got the reservation but we were not seated for an hour later. They were very busy and the staff was nice and gave us complimentary drinks. Over all had a very good experience

Cute Spot, Good Food, Great Service
My boyfriend and I went here after a Wake Forest football game. The place was crowded with parents in town taking out their college kids so I'd definitely recommend a reservation. There were also two large parties of 20+ people so I'd also recommend it for large parties. We shared the crab dip appetizer, shrimp & grits (best thing on the menu!!!) and mahi mahi. Everything tasted very good. We were well attended by the bartender while waiting for our table and by the server once seated. We were sat outside which I expected to be cool as it's November but the enclosed outdoor space is well heated and creates an interesting atmosphere. Overall, I would definitely like to return for more shrimp & grits the next time I'm in Winston-Salem.

Everything went perfect. Got there long line to be seated but with my open table reservation we were seated almost immediately Very good experience. Will definitely use again. Food great service great. Very happy!!
