Great place to bring out of town visitors. I had the burger. It was done to my liking. Served with a small side of tortellini. Just enough for a meal. I was full but not stuffed. Price point reasonable.

Larkin’s Filling Station is a little gem I wish we had in Pennsylvania! We had a wonderful time here! We were passing through Buffalo and found this place and had to stop because our daughters name is Larkin and the reviews were great. The salmon blt was fantastic!

Our wait time for food was almost a half hour at lunchtime. We were in a time crunch by that time and had to eat quickly. Would have liked to enjoy our meals at a slower pace. The waitress seemed overwhelmed as we saw only two for the entire restaurant. It was a bit loud too, found ourselves having to speak louder than we’d liked. Overall good food.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Squash and Citrius salad was refreshing. Everyone had something different from the fish taco's which were great to the Nashville BBQ Burger with just the right zing. The only downfall was the Service. We sat there for a good 13 minutes before anyone stopped over. The Server was pleasant and took our orders quickly. The food game in a reasonable amount of time. The prices were in line with other comparable eateries. We will definitely be back

I am a regular customer of the Filling Station and trust that I will have no more requests for survey response in the many times that I will be there in 2018. The service is very good as well as the food. The new manager, Lauren Wojtulski, runs a good ship.

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

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.
