Food was very good. Our sever was very good as well. We have been here several times and have always been pleased.

Would have given 5 stars but 6 of us were in a booth and it was loud. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation. Next time we will try to remember to request a table.

My girlfriend and I visited this place this past Saturday. This restaurant was mediocre at best. The food came out fast (less than 10 minutes), the waiter was attentive, and the atmosphere was nice, that's about all there was that was good. When looking at the menu online I had decided that I wanted the seafood pasta. However, upon arriving at the restaurant that was not on the menu so I ordered the flank steak, this food had so much promise, and it fell way short of that promise. Neither the steak nor the vegetables had any taste, not even the slightest hint of salt or pepper. My girlfriend ordered the bbq chicken, her chicken was tough and was missing key ingredients listed on the menu. Needless to say we will never be back.

Great food and Tim was a great server. Too much noise from the next table. I feel as if the management should have ask them to be less vocal.. This is a great restaurant, it's a shame that they have to cater to the sports bar type crowd also.

This is one of my favorite places for outdoor dining in WS. The courtyard is beautiful and quaint and the outside wall cuts down the road noise a bit. Inside, the restaurant is definitely "Old"...it could use some sprucing up in order for the inside to match the outside's ambiance. Food was very good...portions were substantial and the wait staff friendly and competent. Great value for the $.

Been here many times and tonight it just wasn't as good. My steak came out and was full of grizzle and fat. While they immediately took care of the steak a little more attention prior to cooking the steak would've gone a long way. The rest of my party of 7 were finished with dinner and my "new" steak was still on the grill. Not wanting to have them wait and have to watch me eat it, I asked the server to cancel the steak since everyone else was finished. He stated he would get it packaged to go for me. When he presented the check he informed me they had removed the original steak from the receipt which was the correct thing to do. When I asked about the one he was packaging to go he informed me that they just cancelled the order. Interestingly enough a manager never visited the table to check on us or to discuss the problem. That's an issue for me. Good customer service only takes a couple of seconds.

The rest of my party enjoyed their meals and we had a good time together. Unfortunately I went home and made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Just disappointed to spend $245.00 on a meal and have to do a PBJ at the end.

We went for Christmas Eve brunch-certainly a very busy time for a small restaurant. We had a reservation and arrived on time. Our table was not ready. The hostess assured us it would just be a matter of cleaning an available one. Ten minutes later, is the matter of cleaning a different table. We were seated within 15 minutes or so. I was disappointed to learn that they were out of the dish I ordered about 5 minutes after the order had been put in. I ordered a more expensive entree, and was charge at full price. I ordered a children's entree for my daughter. This came with an included drink, which wasn't brought until we asked after the entrees had arrived. My flatware was dirty and I asked for a replacement. Unfortunately, we received the food while I didn't have any available flatware and had to get up to ask the hostess for a new set. The food was good and the prices are very reasonable. Everyone was very nice, I think they were perhaps a bit understaffed that day to function at the highest level. I will go back hoping for a better experience next time on a less busy day.

This restaurant features outstanding food and terrific service! I ordered a cider sangria cocktail, which was delicious and highlighted winter spices, like cinnamon and clove. For my entree, I had the beef tips and smoked Gouda over pasta, which was excellent. The beef was tender and the smokiness of the cheese went very well with the pasta. For dessert, we shared the chocolate bourbon pecan pie, which was equally terrific.

Our server, Brittany, made good suggestions, was very welcoming, and appropriately attentive. Most of the entrees range from $20-$30. If you’re looking for a fine meal in s casual setting, I highly recommend The Old Filling Station.

Crowded and running late on reservations (and this was at 6PM). That said, the servers were very welcoming and no one rushed us. Food was good. Would return but might have a back up if this proves to always be this crowded.

I am becoming more and more intolerant of the noise level in the Filling Station.

We love Sunday brunches in the courtyard... we love sitting by the fireplace when the place is half full or less.

But the noise level on Sunday evening was uncomfortably high, both in the main restaurant and in the covered section of the courtyard.

I think we'll refrain from eating there on weekends in the colder weather.

To be fair, all restaurants have this problem to some degree. Mozelle's, across the street, is noisy... So are Quanto Basta and Spring House... I can't think of a quiet restaurant on a busy night.

So perhaps we should chalk up my poor review to Fuddy Duddyhood... But is there nobody in this town who can control noise? Some fabric on the walls, some textured tiles in the ceiling?

For two years we've enjoyed the Filling Station for our Thanksgiving lunch. The turkey was delicious and the meal was priced reasonably. We also were able to sit by the fire. Great visit!

Made an OT reservation, was told it’d be 30 minutes after that before the two of us could be seated. The food is good, at a decent price point, but otherwise nothing to get excited about. The service has always been fair, my only real issues I’ve had is with the host. They need to learn how to use Open Table and manage their floor to honor OT reservations. All in all, a good restaurant at a good value, just some minor issues. Would go back, and recommend for casual dining.

The Food Great -The Quality of the ingredients and the mixture of flavors were wonderful.
The waiter was not very attentive and I believe he forgot to put the order in because I saw two other tables get their meals before us. We waited approx 45 minutes for our main dishes.
