    Good food, excellent service. Depending on where you are seated it can be a noisy inside. If it is warm enough it is better to sit outside.

  • Had Reservation - DIDN'T MATTER

    We made a reservation for six for Sunday Brunch - family visiting and special occasion (son to perform in piano recital that afternoon). When we arrived, the host was clearly busy/inundated with many people requesting tables. We approached and gave our name and time of reservation - he stated he had 6-7 other requests and we would be put on the waiting list - EVEN THOUGH WE HAD RESERVATION! We were NOT happy. Instead went across the street to Mozelle's, where we were accommodated in timely fashion.

    We wanted a great but fast meal as we were traveling. This was just 2 miles off the 40/52 interchange and was perfect. The food was great with lots of options between $9 burgers and sandwiches or $25 entrees. Everything we ordered was super and we enjoyed fresh food, great ambiance and we were out the door in the same time if we had gone with a quick chain restaurant. Our server was very friendly. I'm glad we made reservations (only 30 min ahead of time as we were approaching Winston-Salem) bc we were seated immediately. We noticed a line as we were leaving so reservations are probably the way to go if you are on a timeline.

    The outdoor seating at 6:30pm was perfect, and the food was very good. The bar and waitstaff was slow, and the waitress was extremely sterile and impersonal. I would try it again for the food in hopes the gal was just having a bad night.

    Had reservations for a party of 10 one week in advance, called the day of to confirm. I had never been here before so didn't know what to expect. Everything was awesome, but nobody told me the reservations were outside, and some of the party thought it was kind of chilly. Opentable and the restaurant themselves didn't mention it with any contacts. Other than that, everything was awesome!

    We had a party of 4 that needed to be changed at the last minute to a party of 6. Changed the reservation easily on Open Table the night before with no issues at all. The table was ready when we arrived. No waiting. Brunch selection was very good and everyone loved their food. I would recommend the Peaches and Cream French Toast and hashbrowns....delicious!

    Have been to the Old Fourth Street Filling station several times, mostly with a bunch of students from nearby Wake Forest. It is a perfect place for a casual dinner and has become a bit of a tradition. Food and service are both quite good and have been consistent. Ambiance and atmosphere of the restaurant is friendly and low key. I will be back!

    Have been there many times before & recognize that this was an unusual situation: A/C WAS BROKEN!!! That said, however, this was the first time I used Open Tables to reserve a table @ 8:00 pm. This however made no difference that I could tell as the maitrêsse d', if you will, at the entrance put my name on her list and told us we could wait in the bar as it might be a little while. Not only this, I requested a seat inside since I felt it would be too warm to sit outside. Now I am SURE SHE KNEW THE A/C WAS BROKEN, but she said nothing about it. I must give Kudos to our waiter, Marshall, who was most pleasant and thoughtful!

    For our group of four Atlantans, knowledgable, energetic wait staff and pleasant surroundings on a mild evening made for an enjoyable meal. We chose an outside table beneath a canopy because rain was a possibility and were very comfortable. The menu had an interesting variety of well prepared dishes that were presented sensibly and attractively. None was especially memorable but we tried a couple of appetizers, salads, and four entrees and liked them all just fine. Our waiter's wine suggestions were a big hit with all of us.

    I'm giving only a fair rating due to the heat. We opted to eat inside since it was 90 degrees outside. To our amazement it was almost as hot indoors. We had the staff turn the ceiling fan off over our table due to the light/fan was causing a strobing issue. The only air besides ceiling fans appeared to be a portable air conditioner. I was sweating by the end of our dinner. Food was good and wait staff very accommodating.

    We love 4th St Filling station and often take out of town guests there, particularly in warm weather because the patio is so inviting. Unfortunately, although I had requested patio seating when I made the reservation, we ended up inside after a lengthy wait (diners tend to linger when it is nice outside). We were seated next to the servers station which was busy and loud. Our orders, which were pretty basic, took longer than expected as well. Having said that, it was a Saturday and the wine festival. I will go back but if bringing guests would probably choose a less busy day. Handling groups of more than 4 during peak times seems to be iffy.

    We made a reservation on open table about 1 hour before we arrived. It was graduation weekend at Wake Forest and we were concerned about getting seated. When we arrived our table was ready in a nice location outdoors. The resturant was very busy, however our service was excellent. From the roles to dessert the meal was an A+. The fish was delicious as well as the pasta dish . This was my second time dining here, and both times we had great food and atmopshere.

    This is not our first visit to the Old Fourth Street Filling Station and we have enjoyed previous visits so we thought we would bring a couple of our friends who had not been to restaurant previously. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations and we will not bring friends there again unless they specifically ask to go there. Our service was poor and the food was just average on this trip. We were served by a young girl who obviously was intent on selling wine. She didn't ask if we drink wine and went on with her spiel even though our guests were in conversation. I finally had to stop her. It was like correcting one of my kids who was being rude. That was indicative of the service that evening.
