Stopped by here for dinner but they didn't offer a gluten free menu so just had a drink and appetizer. The food was decent and the selection of local brews was cold. Was very busy at the time and kind of hectic. Made a few mistakes but quickly remedied the order.

4 long hairs in my hamburger. They took the burger off and then charged us for the rest of our meal AND full price for our beer which should have been 1/2 price happy hour. So there was nothing done to fix it. But I did threw my guts up in parking lot. Disgusting... NASTY! Dirty kitchen

The Garage is in downtown Bozeman at a great location. We sat outside and the weather was divine. My son loves the car theme of the restaurant, it is a cool idea. The menus are wrapped in metal license plates and you can find car parts all over the restaurant. Our server was very sweet and did a good job.... More

Garage is the kind of place you want to visit & eat during you visit to new places. Informal atmosphere (you run into the kitchen & cook when you walk in the door...just the way the floor plan works:) Great food @ good prices....highly recommend.

From the license plate menus, to the soup sampler to the actual food, this place is terrific! The soup 'sampler' is awesome. I had a pulled pork sandwich with cider cole slaw - YUM. Great atmosphere, friendly service. Oh, and I loved how families could have their dog at the outdoor dining and waitstaff would fill their water bowls! My... More

Excellent service, felt like we were a featured group but noticed all other tables were treated the same. Ordered the veggies with the spicy blue cheese dip and ended up buying a couple extra sides of dip to bring back to Wisconsin with me. The soups were unbelievable and the burger and sandwiches were too. The waitress went out of... More

Stopped here as we were passing through Bozeman. Service was good, the menu covers were license plates and the menu items named after old cars. My dad would have loved it! Pros: service, atmosphere, great variety of menu choices, outdoor seating. Cons: Food was creative but some was a little odd tasting. Great soup, but my salad dressing was bottled... More

Quirky atmosphere, outside seating and good food. Love their clam chowder soup (usually 4-5 soups to choose from) and their grilled cheese. Salad is good too. Water bowls for dogs! :)

You can join the Garage Birthday Club and they will send you a discount coupon for your birthday month. We went for our birthdays (same month). I had the Asian Sesame Wings and my spouse had the 1/2 order of BBQ ribs. I had never had the wings before and I will be going back for more....they were so good... More

The Garage is one of our family favorites. The food always tastes good, and we always receive friendly service. We also enjoy eating outside, taking advantage of the beautiful weather, but our children do miss playing in the indoor play area during the summer months. I personally have missed their pork chile verde soup this summer, however, I understand they... More
