Very good lunch spot, I had salmon and it was very good. Very accommodating if you need to change up their menu items for dietary reasons. Service was excellent too. Parking across the street and a short walk.

The service was good until Mrs. Zemsky who was sitting next to us, left. Then we were ignored. Hmmm, coincidence? I think not.

Definitely a destination to see Larkinville and the effort that is being made to revive a Buffalo neighborhood.

We had a very nice setting to celebrate a friend's birthday, only downside was at the peak of seating it was very noisy. The lunches were delicious and the staff very accommodating. We enjoyed ourselves, new place for five out of the seven of us and we would all return.

Only open for lunch (unfortunately), this is a great place to meet friends/clients/colleagues for a simple, friendly, casual meal. Nothing pretentious or overbearing. The food is consistently excellent, the service friendly, and the atmosphere relaxing..

Service was slow in the beginning. Was given menus but had to wait a while to be greeted, get drinks and order our lunch. After the order was in we received our lunch in a timely matter. Would definitely go back but on lunch time you need to be able to get in and out.

There were three of us there for a birthday lunch on our lunch hour. It took over 50 minutes to just get our food. One girl could not even finish her sandwich since she had to get back to work. By the time, we ate ( in a hurry )and paid the bill we had been there an hour and a half! Not good when you only have an hour lunch.

The Filling Station has a really nice selection of entrees and specials, and their regular menu is varied. I tried the vegan lentil soup and it was rich and hearty, with a nice spicy flavor.

We planned our book club gathering for the square but, with the forecast of 90 degerees on Tuesday, I made reservations for a table at the Filling Station. We were very pleased with our decision to do so. Everything was wonderful. We were even invited to stay after lunch at a table to discuss our book till the restaurant closed. I don't know the total bill for our table because we had asked for separate checks. Thank you for great service and hospitality!

Great, quaint lunch spot with delicious food. Selection is a little small, but the food quality is spectacular. Service is okay, but could definitely be a little bit better (we ordered a cup of coffee and were told the pot was brewing, but it took forever for the actual cup to come out.) But all in all, a very good lunch.
