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

We went on the recommendation of our shuttle driver! Great staff! Wonderful food and beer! The pizza had a nice thin crust!!! We will be back.

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.

We were in a time crunch for finding a location for our rehearsal dinner because our previous place fell through and they were very accommodating! We just ordered pizza and salad and everyone left his full bellies and were very happy. It's a unique location with a great selection of drinks. I highly recommend this place!

I love their pizza selection (Spartan is really good) and their brew is top notch. Great employees make this a required stop while on your bike trip through town. Big supporters of the TART trail system. Check them out and you'll return.

Tasty beers and fresh food at reasonable prices plus friendly staff, solid music schedule and family friendly vibe-- what's not to love?! The Filling Station is just a 5 minute walk or bike ride from our home and enjoys great TC scenery near the Library Children's Garden and the TACS sailing center along Boardman Lake. In warmer weather the covered... More

Order from the bar and get a number to take to a table inside or out and the food gets delivered to you! When you place your order, you can also taste one of the many craft beers they make there. If the weather is good, you can sit outside where they have live music. The pizza was good and... More

Order pub style, so you go sit, then walk up to the bar and order. They give you a number and bring it out when done. Pizza was amazing and I'd go back over and over again for more!!! Beer was super strong and none of it was for me. No wine or other drinks available other than soda. Kids... More
