“Excellent pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

I loved the thin crust cracker crust pizza, some of the best pizza ever. The salads also very good. Beer is good but not great.

“Good food, good atmosphere, good beer.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were looking for somewhere to get dinner on our way through Traverse and it seemed like every other brewery had meager food offerings. I found this place and we pulled in at about 8:30pm on Friday expecting a wait. Instead we had the inside practically to ourselves. The IPAs were good and so was our Wolverine pizza and Station Salad.

The next day, we found ourselves back in Traverse at 7pm, with hour long waits at every restaurant, so we went back to the Filling Station. They were very busy but we were able to snag the last available table. Got more beers and tried the excellent Burlington pizza.

The one snag was a smores pizza that we ordered at the tail end of our meal which took 45 mins (I'm pretty sure they forgot about it).

“You call this a piZza place”

If your looking for a typical pizza place this is not it. If you want a fly by night trendy place you got it.

“Great Craft Beers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Finally made it to the Filling Station after hitting a few of the other breweries in Traverse City more than once on previous visits. Now that we've come here though, it will always be our first stop. The beers are so delicious and so drinkable that we pretty much enjoyed everything, which is rare for two people who are not real craft beer lovers. At most breweries, we will struggle to find one or two beers that meet our simple tastes, but at the Filling Station, we literally tried 8 beers and liked every single one of them. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to try the food, but the pizzas looked absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back here.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Have been here a couple times and haven't been disappointed yet! The food is really good (have always had the pizza), service is excellent (very friendly & 'down to earth'), and the beer is good.

Fun atmosphere to spend some time with friends.
