6th Street Filling Station

June 27, 2009

When you look around Wausau, it seems that the East side gets short shrift, especially when it comes to eateries.

If you exclude downtown, there is not much in the way of food places on the East side.  Yes, you can head down Grand Avenue, but you are pretty much in Schofield before finding something other than chain food.

So, I really appreciate the 6th Street Filling Station.  Not only is it on my way home from most places, but they offer a very nice combination of local cafe with very nice upgrades that make them well worth the visit.


Not your ordinary fish fry!

On the local cafe side, yes they have a complete selection of burgers, shakes and soft serve ice cream, perfect for any summer day.

Every so often they will go even more homestyle and grill those burgers outside for perfect barbeque taste.  But they have so much more.

How about an egg, cheese and spinach sandwich served on inch thick whole wheat toast?  Very yummy.  Salads that include exotic lettuces and touches found usually only in upscale restaurants.  Or a lucious pan fried haddock filet, one that had lots of rye bread crumbs in the breading that gave it a real flavor snap.


Chef Peter McGreck add his personal touches to the dishes at the Filling Station, like this pan fried haddock.

And that does not even begin to mention the wonderful baked specialties, including the pecan carmel rolls, which are to die for. The dining room of the Sixth Street Filling station with their automotive theme.

You can’t miss the Filling Station on 6th right across the street from Saint Michael’s Church.

Check out their daily specials and be happy to be an Eastsider!

    Thank you for the nice write up about the restaurant and me. Unfortunately, I have had to move on from the Sixth Street Filling Station and take my special touches with me. I now practice my specialties in fish along with my other loves in steaks at the Outskirts, 8861 State Hwy 29, Eland, Wi 54427. You can now expect the high end food that my customers were used to experiencing at the filling station along with an extended menu to please anyone in mind. Please give me a call out there at 715-454-6728 and i will be glad to explain out menu options. Hopefully I will see you out there.
