Great vegan flatbread

The vegan flatbread was tasty--it didn't feel like I had to compromise! Fun, laid back atmosphere.

Good pizza and good beer

There is a vegan speciality flatbread pizza called the Silver Fern. It might sound good to others, but I don't like mushrooms, so I did a create your own. You can add many toppings and make it 100% vegan.

Great vegan pizza options

We loved the outdoor patio area as we brought our dog and it was pet friendly. Pizza options include a signature vegan pizza or a build your own with vegan cheese.

Pros: Vegan cheese options for pizza

Decent pizza

They met my minimum by having vegan cheese, but didn't go above that because they don't have any vegan proteins.

Cons: No vegan protein options

Incredible pizza

I'd rate 5 stars if possible. They have one vegan pizza, The Silver Fern, that's absolutely wild. I haven't seen another pizza that's so insanely piled with delicious veggies and the gooey cheddar they use is very tasty. I think you can build your own pizza, as well, but they've done a great job there.

Filing Station also does well with outdoor, safe seating during the pandemic; it's under the awning next to the railroad tracks with plenty of space between parties and tons of heaters going to keep it warm in the colder months.

Pros: So many veggies on vegan pizza, Great outdoor seating, Friendly staff

This place is the best!

I would give this place 5 stars if the app would allow me to. We love The Filling Station. Great beer, good food and a nice environment to hang out. We usually get the vegan pizza (Silver Fern) but have also tried other pizzas and substituted the cheese for their vegan cheese option. Would recommend!

Pros: Vegan options, Good beer , Comfortable environment

awesome pizza

They have a delicious vegan pizza on the menu. It's a cheese free pizza with lots and lots of toppings. It's so good along with the fig/pear salad. They also offer a vegan cheese you can substitute on any pizza along with a gluten free crust

Cons: Expensive

everyone is so nice.

Manager explained how you can order any pizza vegan and that they do not use eisenglass in any of their beer. Super helpful. And the vegan pizza that's on the menu was awesome.

Best Vegan in TC

there is 1 vegan pizza on the menu, and it's excellent. BUT... they will turn any pizza vegan for you, and ask you if you would like to sub for the meat and cheese your pulling off. Great vegan food, and the best service in TC.

Pros: Service, flexibility, great beer

Cons: nada

Great Service

We asked the staff about whether cheeses had rennet. They went through all the packages and weren't able to tell (just "enzymes" were listed). The manager came out to speak with us and said he also called the supplier, because we were not the first to ask about this. We ordered the vegan pizza and a beer sampler and really enjoyed both. The outdoor seating with a view of the lake was also great.

Pros: Very helpful staff, Fresh and tasty, Outdoor seating, style and view

Cons: Could not verify if cheeses have rennet

Tasty pizza and craft beers

We recently enjoyed dinner at The Filling Station while in Traverse City. Perched on one of the high tables with two other couples, we enjoyed the craft beers (my favourite one was the Bavarian wheat beer, which was light and refreshing) and pizza. Nice to see a vegan flat bread on the menu. It was real tasty and enough for two along with a salad. They were happy to do a vegan vinaigrette on the side for us.
Laid back style - you order at the bar, get a number stick and a server brings your food order to your table when ready. Can open a tab or pay as you order.

Pros: Vegan options on the menu, Good value for money

Cons: Central enough but need to look for it
