The Old Fourth Street Filling Station Ratings and Reviews
First time visit while coming into Winston-Salem to visit colleges. We came in on a Thursday night and we're happy to find it was half price wine night! Excellent! But, be prepared because this also means the place is packed with people; seemed like most of the diners were women! Due to wine night? Make sure you have reservations. Our server was sweet, the food was great. Can recommend the crabcake dinner, and the Southwestern Flank Steak. We will return next time we are in town.
We went to the filling station for a Mother's day/Graduation lunch and it was a complete disaster. We had a 12:30 reservation and we were seated at 12:45- which was fine. Once seated our waitress immediately told us the wait for food was going to be long and that the kitchen was backed up. We actually appreciated her being up front... we had several friends in the restaurant that had been waiting for food for over an hour, but we were OK. We ordered a round of drinks... and then another round... and then we watched as almost every other table got their food, paid the bill, and left. We went to the manager and shared with her that tables that were seated AFTER we ordered had already eaten, paid the bill and left... this was a good 90 minutes after we were seated. Every single person in the dining room had come in AFTER we placed our order... and then the final blow- we were told that some food takes longer to cook than other food... we ordered poached eggs! Finally when another tray of food was delivered to another table- a table that was seated a good 30-40 minutes after we placed our order, we got up and walked out. It was 2:30- a mere two hours after our reservation... and still no food- we got up and walked out!
We had Sunday brunch and the food was pretty good. We had a 1:15 reservation via Open Table, but we didn't get sat until 2. The hostess admittedly forgot about us. Our waitress was nice and accommodating, but it was another hour from the time we sat down to when we got our food.
Went for Easter Brunch.. and were very pleased. The menu on line needs to be updated (offerings and prices) and for being a very busy day the service was very good, food well prepared and we were very happy we went there instead of our old standby of the country club... much better value and a nice menu and good quality food.
Love 4th Street. Always a reliable favorite for great food and drinks. Can be loud inside as the seating isn't well spaced out, but the patio is wonderful. Salmon salad is my favorite, but you really can't go wrong with anything!
We had made reservation to celebrate an anniversary with our family who were visiting from our of town. Initial when we made our reservation we had mentioned having outdoor seating however the weather had turned cold and windy and when we arrived the restaurant was nearly empty and we requested to sit inside and were met with great animosity. The hostesses were incredibly rude and made us feel as if we were asking for too much. They eventually sat us at a booth which was perfect for all of us and our waiter was phenomenal and the food was great as well, but it definitely left a bad taste in our mouth. As it had been a while since I had dined at 4th Street I was very excited but can't say if it will be on the top of my list next time we have family in town.
This is a private review:
Service great, fast enough, and my guests orders were ample and delicious. However, my salmon salad was a disappointment. The only green used was curly endive which is impossible to eat in public. It curls all over the place when you are trying to eat it--under your nose, down your chin, into your eye, etc. . A variety of lettuces would have been better. There is no fight with flatter leaves--I suggest two kinds of lettuce, one sprig of curly endive, no spinich, a few small tomatoes, maybe a black olive or two or two, sliced onion. I just couldn't eat the salad part and I was really hungry but the salmon was delicious. Thanks for the bread!
Was looking for a quick bite to eat after a show. Made a reservation on short notice on Open Table. Service and the food was competent. Price charged for the value received was fine. If we're in Winston again, we'll consider giving it another visit.
We had a large group (14) at 7pm on a busy Saturday night. Our waitress was wonderful. She managed all of our orders (correctly!) and checked in with us several times. The food was great - I had the grilled salmon salad and asked if the chef could blacken the salmon, and it was wonderful! Highly recommend this restaurant.
No problem getting in. Nice ambience with historic home-like feel. Then trouble...Our server (PJ) was forgetful about taking our drink orders, timely serving the drinks, and he actually served the bill before forgetting we ordered dessert. He did not write anything down, which might have helped him out a bit.
My food was just 'meh' (I got the tortellini as half of the $30 dinner for two) but my wife's filet of mignon was tasty. Oh, and we were overcharged (got billed for two specials-$60, instead of one). Won't be back. Sad!
We had eaten here a year ago during which the service was poor--long delays after ordering until the food was delivered to the table--but we decided to give it another chance. The food was good (jambalaya and trout as entrees, ahi tuna as an appetizer) but the service was substandard. When we entered the restaurant, the waitstaff seemed disorganized (we were being shown to a table before the hostess realized it had been cleared). Attention by the waiter was timely and the food came out quickly. But what we resented was the attitude of the waiter: he was distinctly unfriendly, and to call it hostile may not be going too far (we are both in our late 60s and one of us is Asian). We got the impression, which may not be true, that he'd rather we were not there. He frowned the whole time and his bodily motions, slapping things down on the table, quickly turning away, everything he did made us very uncomfortable (even though we barely said any words to him). We are in our late 60s (one of us is Asian) and we have never been treated this way, ever. Maybe he is not representative of the entire staff, but the manager needs to pay more attention to training. A small item: no coasters or napkins delivered with drinks. This left condensation covering the wooden table from every time we put down our drinks, which we had to wipe up with our cloth napkins so that it did not get on our clothes, at least until plates started coming out. What restaurant in the world pays so little attention to the basics? We are not looking for the fake cheery approach you see from too many waiters and waitresses. All we want is efficiency and to feel welcome, nothing more than that. Needless to say, we will not be going back.
