I went to this restaurant a couple years ago and did not have a good experience. (see previous review) but on the encouragement or friends, they talked me into going back. The appearance of the restaurant had not changed, it’s a nice little corner place on the main street. The place was crowded and required over a 30 minute wait.... More

Wonderful joint with great staff and outstanding Burgers at a value price. After a long drive we were looking for a nice place to have dinner where we could bring the beagle. The Garage was very accommodating with a great table outside and brought a bowl of water for our pet. We were there for happy our and got a... More

Corner garage turned restaurant. Lots of outside seating and a waiting list but the tables seemed to be turning over. Interesting menu with bison, salmon, burgers, chicken all cooked according to various styles listed on the menu. We both had bison burgers and they were good but under cooked. The bathrooms were not very clean, the kitchen seemed to be... More

Small in size but mighty in flavor. Chili Verde soup is my favorite from the custom soup kitchen here. (free samples always allowed)

I'm a local and I always enjoy eating at the Garage with my friends and family. The servers and bus-hosts are always so nice, the cooks are a hoot but highly competent, and the atmosphere is relaxed and unique. Be sure and try the fully, entirely mirrored restroom while you're there!

This time they would not seat us in the restaurant so since it was overcast we sat outside. We both had the BBQ ribs this time and they are to die for. We ate the whole thing. Their fries are the best and I ate all of those too. We both had a beer with our ribs and you can't... More

First day of vacation and a heavy meal was out of the question. Stopped in for a light dinner and The Garage satisfied our needs. We selected a BLT with tomato soup and clam chowder with a salad. Portions were plentiful without overloading and prices were very reasonable. Wait staff was helpful answering questions and the outside seating was half... More

After reading the reviews we chose this place for supper during our one night stop in Bozeman. We were impressed. It isn't fancy by any means, but an awesome diner-like atmosphere. We loved how the food menus had license plate covers, and the drink menus were on wine bottles. The soup shack was so cool...getting to choose your soup and... More

Had lunch at The Garage on our first visit to Bozeman downtown area. We were attracted due to the outside seating and large patio area. We had an excellent lunch - their original hamburger and the pulled pork sandwich both very good. They have a dog friendly patio. The service was very good and although fairly busy we waited about...
