Visited there today, not for the first time. We shared a salad and pizza and each had a beer, (well ok I had two). The best IPA in town. All was very good. I love the historic nature of the building, the view, whether inside or out and the staff is just excellent, very very friendly.

It's hard to believe a pizza and beer place is a top rated restaurant in this foodie city but this place deserves the high marks. We are locals to TC and this is one of our go-to places. The beer is very good, the pizza is very good, and the salads are fantastic. But the venue is even better, great... More

Great pizza and always a seat available, due to the large outdoor eating area. Easy access, lots of parking and good beer

Menu limited to pizza and salad basically. Pizza was excellent. Pub style service where you order at the bar. Indoor seating area is kind of small. Definitely would go back..

Nice atmosphere, very good flatbreads, and excellent beer. Prices were reasonable for both food and beer. We started with beer cheese appetizer which I was thinking would be the best I've had. It missed the mark in my opinion. The pretzels I feel were just out of the bag and the cheese spicy, but missed the sharpness I expect in... More

Such a cool building. The pizza choices are unique and delicious. We had the Stoker and the Burlington Northern, both were amazing. Friendly staff. Good beer. Definitely recommend and look forward to returning!

Enjoyed the Walla Walla IPa with our delicious pizza. We ordered 3 of the flatbreads for our family of 5, wished we would have ordered 4. We are average eaters for the most part, maybe one or 2 of our group are larger eaters. So our experience was great pizza, great beer, just would have ordered one more. Service was... More

This was mine and my wife's first time to the Filling Station. We both had pizza and it was very good but pricey. They have a great location and the set up is very nice. We felt right at home. I definitely cant wait to go back and try some other stuff on the menu.

Thank TCEric514
