With a funky 1950s American diner vibe, Filling Station Edinburgh High Street showcases a classic selection of classic recipes from the States on the Royal Mile. Leather booths and a lively bar area make for a bustling, comfortable setting.

Serving up a selection of favourites, the Filling Station menu compiles dishes from the length and breadth of America. World-famous classics include deep dish Chicago-style pizzas served in the pan, succulent Kentucky wings, or a towering club sandwich with homemade slaw. A hearty breakfast menu at Filling Station includes a pancake stack lathered with maple syrup, or roast ham and eggs.

In The Filling Station bar, enjoy refreshing cocktails, smooth shakes and international beers, all accompanied by a soundtrack of chilled Motown and classic American rock. The Filling Station kids menu offers an array of choice, from the BBQ pulled pork wrap, to delicious American meatballs with homemade sauce.

Filling Station Edinburgh High Street brings classic American style to the Royal Mile, just 4 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Rail Station.

    Place has gone downhill. Food is no better than average. 3rd time visited and 3rd time they use the excuse of no peanut butter for the peanut butter martinis, just an excuse not to make it. Shouldn't have it on the menu. Waiter couldn't be bothered when serving us.

    Really enjoyed the atmosphere here. We arrived on Friday afternoon and the restaurant was very busy, however this did not impact on the service or the times waiting for food.

  • ((((* 6 August 2012 by JAC from West Lothian

    High Street was very busy due to the good weather and the Fringe. I couldnt fault the service or the food considering how busy the place was.

    Dined on saturday at 5pm with my 75 year old mum before attending the tattoo. Seated beside bar area which was really noisy. Loud music playing in background too which meant we had to shout across the (sticky) table to each other. Waiter was very attentive but food decidedly average. Ok for a quick meal but not for a special occasion. Food lying about on floor around our table making it quite dangerous to walk on. Toilets left a lot to be desired.
