Holiday Cheer and Exquisite Meals at The Fourth Street Filling Station
By Brian Watkins
The Old Fourth Street Filling Station has been a popular downtown Winston Salem restaurant for many years. Classy for date nights and lively for holiday get togethers, it retains the historic charm of western Winston Salem.
Since 1999 the Filling Station has blended amazing cuisine with casual dining. From relaxed atmosphere dining to memorable special occasions, general manager Adam Andrews has enjoyed friendships with all sorts of patrons.
Adam owns a local produce farm and uses organically grown veggies whenever possible in both the Filling Station and its sister restaurant, Jeffrey Adams. The menu rotates with the seasons, featuring different batches of produce throughout the year. The dining is truly a unique North Carolina experience.
The restaurant features a full bar and an extensive wine list, making for a great afternoon stop or an exquisite evening meal.
Weekly drink specials include:
• Mondays – $2.50 draughts
• Tuesdays – $2.50 bottle beers
• Wednesdays – $5.00 martinis
• Thursdays – Half price wine
But it’s not just lunches and dinners at the Filling Station. Sunday brunch has been a staple, starting with grand mimosas and Cajun bacon Bloody Maries. Classics like Eggs Benedict are patron favorites, along with fluffy and masterfully seasoned omelets.
You can enjoy meals like these in the well talked about patio area that has been featured many times in publications. Don’t let the cold winter months stop you — there is a covered, heated area of the patio to extend the indoor comfort to a different setting.
In warmer months the restaurant puts on a good number of rehearsal dinner parties. Birthday parties and other celebrations are steady throughout the year. The restaurant has proven to be a successful venue for Christmas parties this time of year that give the place a special ambiance.
