This is part of the craft brewery tour. It’s an old train station with a mom and pop seating style (you might sit next to someone you don’t know). The pizza was a fantastic surprise, the people were friendly and the one man band was...More

We ate at the Filling Station on a HOT Sunday evening. Great seating outside, but on this 90°+ day we were lucky enough to set inside. Located in a renovated train station, it is a great location. Order at the bar & grab a seat....More

If you love crisp flatbread pizza, this is the place for you. An added plus is their craft beers. It was a fun stop on our Kayak Bike and Brew tour. We have been back on our own and it was awesome.
