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.

They didn't have apples during the fall season. How is that possible?

The food was great, all of us loved what we ordered. Our server was attentive. Noise level made it difficult to converse, but not impossible. It only attests to a very popular place. We went on a Saturday night, so glad I made reservations, as people without reservations waited a while.

Enjoyed a delicious birthday brunch w out of town guests. Making reservations a breeze. Prompt seating, great waiter and yummy food. Lovely casual atmosphere. Want to return on sunny day for outdoor dining but could have sat in enclosed patio! Lovely

Waiter was exceptional. He was on top of everything. The vegetables were too crisp! The green beans were hard. The salad had lettuce that had turned mushy and I didn’t eat.

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.

I thought the food was mediocre. Drinks were as good as most places. Steak was dry and barbecue chicken was overcome in volume and taste by a large sloppy heap of mashed potatoes. Salad seemed OK. Service was fine and the price was fair, but there are a number of better restaurants in town for only a slightly higher price. This would probably work out real well as a lunch place, but it missed the mark for dinner.

We took our son here for dinner while visiting Wake Forest. The food was great. Great variety! Wine list was impressive as were the drink menu. My only slight complaint is that i felt a bit rushed. Knowing it was parents weekend I am sure the reservations were stacked. Would like to come back during a less busy weekend

Filet mignon should not be chewy. The server was good about the replacement. My wife also had the filet mignon and hers wasn't much better, but she kept it. I had to get up to get the server and she never otherwise checked to see if everything was ok.

Nice atmosphere...especially outside. Good service. Kitchen was off. Tuscan chicken sent back. Fish ( mahi mahi) dry and disappointing.

Should have gotten burgers.

Hostess was rude. We had reservation for a party of 4 to be seated inside. We requested to be seated in a booth. Even though all but 1 booth was open, and the restaurant was not very busy, we were told that she was saving the booths for larger parties. She seated us at a table near the door while at least 3 booths were open the entire time we were dining. Very poor customer service on this visit.

We really enjoyed our meal. The steak was excellent as was the pasta dish. My only complaint was the only available table with a reservation was near two large parties, which can happen anywhere. Waiter was excellent, we will definitely go back. I loved the option of a four ounce filet!

We were in Winston-Salem for a business meeting but also wanted to have a nice dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary on this same day. We had a wonderful experience that evening... excellent food, great service, and a perfect evening on the patio. This is our second time for coming to this restaurant and will certainly remain at the top of our list when in Winston-Salem.

We dined at The Old Fourth Street FIlling Station as part of a trip to Winston-Salem to see an exhibit at the Reynolda House from our home about 1 1/2 hours away. Our party of 3 chose it after looking at online reviews and weren't disappointed. It has wonderful outdoor dining and a unique twist on classic brunch dishes. The coffee was flavorful and strong, the Mimosa perfectly mixed and the food divine. Our server was pleasant but not too friendly and we weren't rushed to leave. I would highly recommend The Old Fourth Street Filling Station for a relaxing brunch or a special occasion.
