Description: Filling Station coast to coast American restaurant and bar, has been created by a team of people who genuinely love good quality food, drinks and good times! No doubt you're thinking, well doesn't everybody want that? It's true many people do, but we have genuinely struggled to find somewhere that actually delivers all of these things. So our solution was simple - let's do it ourselves, the result is Filling Station.
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Found the place by accident when looking for somewhere for breakfast before going off to Glasgow. It's quite obviously part of a chain but they manage to make it individual even with the generic American posters on display. Breakfast was about one of the best we'd eaten all trip, it was so good that we went back another day and called in on our way back from Glasgow for lunch. Service is very good although during busy times, and it does get busy, you may feel it a tad slow. If you're looking for fast food maybe try MacDonalds. The breakfast menu is quite extensive ranging from the traditional to the more American, as you'd expect. My husband had a traditional breakfast one morning and the pancakes the next, both were very good. For lunch, we waited around 5 - 10 minutes for a table on a very rainy day but once we were sat we were very well looked after. If you're in Stirling looking for a place to eat, do think about visiting The Filling Station.

Was in in Last Thursday night. Not the greatest I have to say.

Starter was lovely I had BBQ chicken with blue cheese dressing. Very nice but my main was very unpleasant. I had meat pasta. No real sauce to be seen just the greese off the meat. Came home with heartburn. Ordered onion rings on the side. Again really Greesey but the sauce they came with was lovely.

When we came in the place wasn't very busy so service wasn't bad but an hour in more people started to come in. There was only 2 girls waiting tables and 2 guys behind the bar area. So had to hunt to get our bill which for me was a little over priced.

One thing I did like was the mocktails. Scarlet o'hara and New Yorker are lovely so would go back for that.

Very friendly and helpful, even although we only had tea and a latte! Tea came in a proper pot with a cup and saucer. Very civilised.

Place we had originally planned to go was shut so we ended up here. The restaurant was rather empty so waiter service wasn't a problem. Main course was brought out in good time. I had the double pepperoni pizza which was nice but it was really greasy. Desert took a while to come out though which was disappointing as it was only two cheese cakes. No real issues and I would say it is okay for a quick lunch sit down.

Dear Frazer27

Thank you so much for your review! At Filling Station, Stirling we strive to exceed the expectations of our guests. So although you enjoyed your visit I have to apologise for areas where we missed the mark. The double pepperoni pizza is loaded with pepperoni to give the burst of flavour but this shouldn't result in it being greasy as your review suggests! We are really appreciative of your feedback and we have taken your points on board to try and combat this. We hope we can exceed your expectations on your next visit!

Again, thank you so much, your feedback is very important in achieving our aim of providing excellent food and service. Hope to you again soon! For information on our menu, offers, competitions and treats check out filling-stations.co.uk.

Kind Regards
