Wife's fish was overcooked (read dry) and my steak was undercooked and not allowed to sit. We were sat next to a large group of people with several children under the age of 10 who were allowed to run around as loud and obnoxious as could be. Our waitress had some bad bidy odor and needed deodorant. I will not be coming back

Went for the first night of Big Eat. 14oz ribeye was the special and it was very special. Delicious and perfectly cooked. Had some wine and an app to round out the meal with a piece of pecan pie to go. Great space and friendly staff. Will definitely return.

My family has eaten here many times and every meal has been delicious. As an experiment, I ordered the eggplant Napoleon to try eating a vegetarian meal for the 1st time in my life and the chef nailed it.
I would recommend them for both vegetarian and Beef eaters alike.

Service was good but the food did not meet my expectation. I ordered the filet mignon and it looked like something out of a cafeteria that my kids would eat for school lunches. Very rubbery, dry, and the seasoning couldn’t take the bad taste away in my mouth.

I was able to book a reservation through OpenTable for a party of 12 within an hour of the reservation time, which was really convenient. We were actually seated a little after our reservation time but that was understandable given the party size. I enjoyed the shrimp and grits and others in my party enjoyed their meals but a few were not pleased and even disappointed with the food. It was disappointing that they ran out of bread for the baskets. Overall, pleasant dining experience and I would return and recommend to others.

This is one of our favorite Winston Salem restaurants and are never disappointed in the food or service. Today was not different. Our light lunch was what we needed and we will be back another day.

We were there on a busy Thanksgiving and were rolling with the punches, however it did seem a bit chaotic having 2 hostesses so unsure if they were getting the waiting list and the reservation list confused.
Food was good but nothing especially memorable or stood out. Butternut Squash Soup was overly sweet.
Bellini Cocktail was great

Shrimp and Grits had chipotle sauce, much too spicy with the andouille. My husband’s steak came out on a white plate, no garnish at all.

We wanted to sit inside, the hostess said she could not see dust inside I needed to sit outside because of all her reservations for today. Although when I made my reservations I did not specify I wanted to sit outside. It was cold and drafty.
The service from our waitress was great and the food was exceptional.

First visit. Great food and service. A little loud due to space size I think. Not as romantic as I think it could be many tables just sit out in middle of floor. Definitely recommend crab cakes!

My group made reservations for 20 but many more showed. The staff shifted things around and accommodated everyone, making it look easy. Everyone had separate checks and ordered off the menu. Again the staff made it look easy. I definitely recommend 4th St Filling Station.

The food was beyond expectations perfectly cooked with great flavors. The staff was not ready for five pm guests and the bread finally came out as we were finished. It was a good and rough experience.
