We first found this place from Pub Pass and then we met Shawn who never leads us in the wrong direction so we always end up enjoying this charming spot in Riverwest. The food is top notch. Every tim...e I come here I have something I could never get enough of: today was hummus with that special hot sauce! The beer drafts are on point! Definitely one of the best tap selections in the city. Have to come back next time for the Meatwad and definitely brunch sometime. I don’t often take the time to review as many places as I should but I love this place! The people that come here are always rad too. We always have good conversation with smiling strangers at the bar, so welcoming all around! Add it to your list! See More

Everyone should visit The Riverwest Filling Station. The help is courteous, the food plate is more than anyone can eat and some very good wine, too. Try the Eggroll Poppers for sure. After the food st...ay for some good music, too. See More

As a craftsman I am hard to please. Time again our burgers and calamari were beyond reproach. One medium rare, one medium, both cooked perfectly, neither soggy nor falling apart, delicious rolls. Cala...mari tender, not chewey. Diverse beer and wine selection put together with knowledge and consideration. Go to here! See More

Amazing food and staff. Chicken wings are fabulous. Family owned and homemade food. Burgers are huge and one of the best I have ever had. Ask for Vivian for your waitress, she was awesome!!

There is a million and one reasons to love the Riverwest Filling Station - the food, drinks, desserts, people, vibes, music, and general atmosphere. Honestly it’s one of my favorite restaurants of all... time. Being that I am from San Francisco, this place feels the most like home. The menu is full of delicious foods that are reasonably priced. Something on the menu for everyone for sure. Brian, Miriam, Mary, and the whole staff are always wearing a smile and eager to see their guests come in and leave happy. They do a fantastic job. The inside is cute and cozy but contemporary and artfully thought out. Clean and hip, chill and even a nice place to have a get together with a few friends or have a meal by yourself or your sweetie.

I love the ambiance, the staff, the food, but most importantly the beer/drink menu!�

If you haven’t tried the Riverwest Filling Station lately, you should. The food is very good and is not your typical pub fare. They have a great selection of beers. And the staff is friendly and attentive.

Great food - hard to find this kind of New Orleans style food in the area - with of course some Brazilian specials! They put a lot of heart and soul into the place with music and quality drinks. You'l...l leave here feeling satisfied. See More

The duck and truffle oil fries weren't what we'd expected. The hummus was bland, so the hype about it didn't pay out. However the burger I had was great. A little overcooked, as I had specified medium... rare. The server was very accommodating and friendly. I'd like to return soon. See More

I've been there twice and both times I've gone on pretty slow nights, one of which was my birthday. While the food was good, both times the food took over an hour to come, and both times we watched ta...bles that came in after us receive their food before us. I don't really have any intentions of going back. See More

The food is awesome! The service is even better. They frequently change their beer selection and the owners are a sweet couple. Support local and check out this gem! P.S. Dogs allowed on the patio.

Nitros on tap and amazing beer selection in general. Throw in good food and live music and what's not to love? Glad this place is here.

The bloody Mary's are awesome, half rack of ribs are to die for, best ribs I've had in along time. The bar is cool. Maybe 32 beers on tap.
