Basic comfort food on Main Street in the middle of nowhere USA. No liquor license but complimentary glass of wine on Saturday nights. Nice old house.

We stopped for a late lunch, early supper kind of thing. Specials for either applied for 3:30p.m. We decided to order the all you can eat fish, fries, & slaw. Quickly were brought a large warm yeast roll, and creamy slaw. So good! The fish arrived shortly after, the plate was full of tender lightly breaded fish and homemade fries.... More

Beachy atmosphere, cozy inside, seating outside. Tasty food and you must try the Thai wings. We ate at about 7pm on a Saturday and were the last people to leave at 8 ish. I am going to guess it has an early dinner crowd. Food and service was awesome and affordable. I don't think they had alcohol, but it might... More

This morning at breakfast, both my friend and I chose their special, Peach stuffed French Toast, with juicy fresh peaches and a creamy but light topping on two thick slices of hearty French Toast. Every bite was delicious, no other topping needed. Highly recommend.

We were advised to try this restaurant for lunch. Looks small on outside, but it extends out back. Quaint, individual rooms on inside. Menu is extensive for all meals. Prices are very reasonable. Food is very good. The chicken salad was yummy for lunch.

I fine it difficult giving a negative review for any business but this warrants one. Ordered the special of the day, jumbo fired clams and husband ordered roast beef sandwich. Clams were dark brown and chewy like thick rubber bands. Fries soggy. Slaw was good. Husbands sandwich was he said "just ok, not great." The thing that really was a... More

Our group of 4 was staying in the area to visit Ricketts Glen State Park. We decided to eat breakfast at the Old Filling Station instead of cooking at the campsite. We were not disappointed. The omelettes were large, delicious and very filling. Our friend chose pancakes instead of toast and they were pretty large too. We liked it so... More

The Old Filling Station is a great little find in Benton, Pa. The servers are friendly, the ambience is pleasant and the food is great. Their meals taste like good old fashion home cooking at a very affordable price. They have some fantastic specials everyday like the fried oysters I had last week. They were some of the best I...
