  • "Great ambiance. Family friendly but also a good date night locale. Best patio in town. Food good and prices moderate."

  • "Met some family members there to celebrate my cousins birthday. It was the first time for most of us . Well to start things off a customer paid it forward and paid a $100.00 towards our dinner !!!! That was a big WOW!!! The food was awesome and the staff was very nice ."

  • "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. "

  • "Always so great for my 2 year old. We sat outside, the kids meals are delicious and we all had a great time. We brought an out of town guest as well who loved it. Love that they have a gluten free menu. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was very good and the service was great as well. We booked on open table and were given an indoor table, it may be worth calling instead if you want to sit outdoors. The wine selection is okay but very reasonably priced"

  • "We had an awesome Graduation dinner! The outside ambience was so serene. Our waiter did an outstanding job with our party of 10. The food was delicious! Overall an excellent place to enjoy a special evening! We will be back for sure!"

  • "We stayed near the convention center this restaurant is on the top of the restaurant lists for Winston-Salem area I am glad we went! They did not get my open table reservation but still seated us. I had the shrimp and grits lt was amazingly good"

  • "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."

  • "Took my mom here for brunch and was so happy to be seated outside, they have a great courtyard. The food was fantastic and the $10 gran Bellini was worth every penny. Will definitely be back."

  • "Although we made reservations, we were seated outside the brick wall on street level. Normally this would have been fine, but it was hot as blazes and very uncomfortable mid-day. I asked the greeter if they had an umbrella (as adjoining tables did), but she said they had no more. Less than 10 minutes later several tables away did get an umbrella. They were even more in the sun than we were, so that was OK...but they need umbrellas for ALL the sidewalk tables. Server was exceptionally cheerful and perky. The kitchen slightly mixed up our order....but not the end of the world. I always love coming here and will continue to put it top on the list of downtown eateries!"

  • "When making my reservation, I requested a booth inside; but Mothers Day was a beautiful day, and I was pleasantly surprised when we were seated at a table outside on the patio. We appreciated the basket of muffins with our coffee. The restaurant was very busy, so getting refills on coffee wasn't prompt. The food was delicious, as usual, but my husband ordered a Tuscan Omelet and was brought a Seafood Omelet like two of the others brought to our table. He ate it and said it was good, but that's not what he ordered. My mother and son enjoyed theirs. I had the Crab Cakes Benedict which were very good, although I prefer my poached eggs a little runnier. All in all, we had a nice brunch - not perfect - but pleasant none the less."

  • "Good Day to sit out on the patio and enjoy a nice lunch with Mom. The service was favorable and the food was good. Make reservations whenever you go - makes the experience much better when you do not have to wait!! "

  • "My family went to The Filling Station for Mother's Day dinner. We arrived and were immediately escorted to our table. We sat on the patio, which is just beautiful! I ate the filet with a crab cake. The steak was cooked just as I ordered. The crab cake had a lot of crab meat and was flavorable. The rest of the party ate burgers. Everyone said the burgers were great. I could not have asked for a more beautiful evening to eat outside. We really enjoyed our experience!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Our family has made going to brunch here for Mother's Day a tradition over the past 8 years and it has always been wonderful! This year the food was still great, however service was terrible! The restaurant had obviously overbooked reservations. We waiting over 30 min past our reservation time to be seated and it took over an hour for our food to come. Way too long for a family with children. "

  • "Overall, we had a super dinner. We were sat 10 minutes after our scheduled reservation due to rain storms passing through. The hostess did a good job keeping us informed as to our seating status and did a good job seating that close to our scheduled time with the patio closed due to the storm. Our entrees came out quick. Our fish and chicken plates were great. Again, we finished with boubon chocalate pecan pie which was why we skipped appetizers."

  • "We were in town as a family and took a recommendation from a friend to dine at The Old Fourth Street Filling Station. We arrived and found out that it was Prom night and the place was very crowded. We were told we had a choice for our 8:00 p.m. reservation. We could be sat immediately outside on the patio or wait and be seated inside. My wife initially told the hostess that we would wait but with an 8 and a 9 yr old in tow we decided to sit outside. It was cool and I asked to have one of the heaters started but was told there was no gas for them. Matt was our waiter and was quick and very friendly. Great kids menu and nothing we asked for was a problem. Food was good. I will go back when it is not Prom night to get a better feel."

  • "Took son and his friends and had 4 different appetizers. They were all great and while the entries were also, one could easily treat this as a tapas place and go home happy. "

  • "We visited on Saturday night around 8pm. We were sat within 5 minutes of our reservation time on a busy night. The service was timely and the food was great. Our crab stuffed mahi mahi was cooked to perfection. The bourbon pecan pie was a super finish to a great experience. I have eaten here many times and I have always been pleased."

  • "Easily accommodated seven of us for lunch. Service was good. A small mistake in bringing out all sweet potato fries instead of regular fries for one of our party, but I was fixed immediately. He even kept the sweet fries, without the server even asking if he wanted them (one of the girls in the group are most of them after..). Overall a good time. We will be back. "

  • "Had Open Table at 1:30 on the Patio. The six of us were seated promptly. Ordered from the Brunch Menu. The food, drinks, and service was great! Our waiter, Gunter, did everything to assure our afternoon was perfect, and it was. Will I return, most certainly....and hopefully, with a larger group, for the evening!"

  • "The food was awesome and the service was great...only issue we had was very tight seating inside...They need to space the tables out some...We had no issues with our reservation thru Open table... It is not somewhere I would take children just due to the type of food and atmosphere (even though we did see children there). "

  • "Made reservations online through Open Table. Never received the promised confirmation email so ended up having to call the restaurant anyhow. Some of the invitations sen via Open Table arrived 4 days after the dinner so that's a waste of effort & bandwidth. Arrived at the restaurant with temps in the mid-40's and was seated outside!! Yes they have a tent and capability to heat but you would think they would either inform you it's outside or ask if outside is acceptable and not just blindside you. We asked for some heat and they did turn it on for maybe 5 minutes then no more. We were seated beside a seam and in front of the entrance so it was too cold to objectively review. Service good, food average."

  • "We LOVE 4th St. Filling Station. Easter brunch was delicious and we enjoyed sitting outside in the lovely spring weather (finally after a long winter!!). The entire restaurant was 100% full since it was a holiday, but the wait staff/kitchen handled the crowd well. We had reservations and were seated on time (and we were given a choice of tables.) There was a bit longer wait for our main course, but the server kept our drinks refilled and a basket of yummy muffins. Main courses arrived hot and fresh from the kitchen ....so no complaints. We will be back!!"
