This place is so popular, you want to send someone ahead to get in line. Great service, big servings and wonderful outdoor in summer, for sure.

There was a line out the door about mid-way through the lunch hour with mostly locals in line. They offer take out, with a twist. You walk up to the soup bar, order, get it bagged, then pay at the register. I watched some amazing dishes come out of the kitchen with a charcoal fires oven. The soup bar had... More

This eatery is in a refurbished service station. Their specialty is soup and they will have several choices on any given day. There is also a full menu of salads and sandwiches. I found the menu rather confusing. The food was OK. The soups were good, but nothing spectacular. After going up and choosing a soup, two other ingredients can... More

I was in Bozeman during the summer, perfect weather and walking down the main street and ran across The Soup Shack Garage. The outdoor seating immediately drew us in and I didn't even realize it was an old converted gas station. This only made it better. The food was great - I had a grassfed beef burger - I would...

If you like soup - you must stop in here. It's very eclectic and a fun place to eat. The staff was great. After you sit down - if you want soup, you have to walk over to the "Soup Shack" to pick out what you want. You can have samples if you are unsure. Once you choose your soup,... More

Good food and great people! I have eaten here many times and it has always been great. Open flame oven is key.

I will admit that the Garage has amazingly yummy soups! And the person working the soup area is always friendly, and they have a great assortment of toppings. However, I have been completely underwhelmed with everything else. Last time I visited, the service was laughable, and my order was wrong. The chicken sandwich was awful! Don't ever order it, what...
