This is a restaurant you can always count on to have good food, burgers and soups especially. The license plate menus and car memorabilia are fun. When warm weather hits, this is a downtown bozeman hot spot for sitting outside.

If you are looking for a restaurant where the entire staff genuinely cares about you the diner and where the food is consistently great and reasonably priced, try the Garage. It is a comfortable, casual place with a huge outdoor patio inviting one to linger any time. For soup fans, there are usually 4-8 delicious homemade varieties and information about... More

3 stars=meets expectation, 4=exceeds. Since my local buddy made this his first choice my expectations were high, so, technically, The Garage met my expectations. I rated them a 4 based on if I'd just wandered in knowing no better. Anyway... On both our visits the service was quite good; cheerful, friendly and prompt. The food was well prepared. Broad spread... More

The restaurant wait staff were the best part of my visit to the Garage. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. However, I was disappointed with my Flatbed Burger - a charred plain beef burger placed on top of a plate of sauteed vegetables. The Garage cooks over a charcoal grill and my burger had a charred hard grilled shell... More

We recently had lunch at this unique restaurant, it is in a converted auto garage. The pulled pork sandwich was great. They had a soup bar with a good variety of soups. They would also give you a small sample of each. The atmosphere is basic with a kid’s play area discretely placed at one end. Ours server was friendly... More
