Great burgers and great beer! Fun place to eat! Authentic garaged turned restaurant. the salad bar is over where the service desk probably one was. Eaten there 2 or 3 times. Always a great experience.

My daughter and I went here for lunch. A popular location, we waited a long time to be seated. The license plate menu jackets and old car parts decor was very creative. The food was very good with well layered seasoning. Good beer selection. Would definitely return.

The Garage specializes in a large variety of burgers and burger options, which are indeed excellent. The soups are quite good as well. However, it is disappointing that a burger restaurant doesn't have a burger on their kids meal. We were told about the wonderful outdoor seating. Unfortunately, management chose not to use it on a beautiful sunny day. Instead,... More

The food is alright but the kitchen is dirty. A bit pricey. A nice patio to sit out and enjoy a nice day

i have been here several times throughout the year. The soup bar cannot be beat! However the rest of the menu is hit and miss. Some are great, and some are not. But nothing is BAD. Recommend for a local place to enjoy outside patio or inside!

Sunday evening outside weather beautiful Service a little slow as short handed but very nice. Cobb salad with chicken very good but moderate pricy Hamburgers looked really good

While it's highly ranked on TripAdvisor, we were not impressed. Our sandwiches were fine but nothing to write home about. We didn't try the soup because there were limited options during the summer. Not sure that we would go back.

Get the soup! Get the soup! Get the soup!!! Did I mention to get the soup. I lived in Boston for 6 years and have thought for years NO one has Clam Chowder to compete with that amazing city, well, gotta say, this place is in the fight. Soup bar made it even better.

We have eaten lunch here multiple times on trips through Bozeman. The food is consistently good and the staff is efficient and friendly. We have had salads, burgers, & other sandwiches. Things are reasonably priced. We generally show up at 11:30 to avoid the waiting line, but it is worth the wait.

The Garage is kind of "divey" but the cheeseburger was good and cooked as requested. Chicken noodle soup was tasty but nothing to write home about. If you have to have a burger, go there but if your taste buds are craving something else, go somewhere else.

Thank Randy G
