Good place to take family, kids, grandparents, etc. Every one can have a great time. Good BBQ, great burgers, funky atmosphere and good beer selection. We come all the time and consider it our neighborhood restaurant!

American Comfort food is known for being hi in calories and the same wherever one goes. That is not the case at the Garage. From the moment you are seated and receive your menu- made out of expired vehicle license plated- you will enjoy the difference. Their burgers come in beef, chicken, and bison in varying sized to fill the... More

I like how many choices of soup there are. You can visit frequently without having repeats. This is the place to be on cold Montana afternoons.

My daughter and I went here for dinner due to recommendations from a couple friends. We were confused about the great reviews as our experience was not good. The hostess at front was rude and not helpful, a little inexperienced it seemed. The soup was very over priced but tasty. I never did get the bread that was suppose to... More

My wife, son, granddaughter and I went to the Garage twice when we were visiting late January, 2017. It is a refurbished garage done in wood but updated with modern bathrooms. It has a play area for the kids and it's dining areas are big & open with booths and wooden tables. It is a very friendly & comfortable place... More

This place is adorable! Great soup, salad, sandwich combos for lunch. They also serve booze! The interior is a really cool atmosphere, like a car garage (hence the name!) There are tables with waiters but for your soup, you go up the counter where you can sample the options and pick your own toppings.

We do prefer the summer seating outside, but this was a great January inside date-night in Montana. From the wine, to the well-stocked soup bar, through the wide array of burgers, and finally to the M & M cookie with huckleberry ice ream (which may have exceeded the legal limit for scrumptiousness), all served up by a super-friendly staff, everything...

Had dinner here last week after a day at Big Sky. Food was ok but not wonderful. I got the pulled pork sandwich and the pork was very spicy. never had it that spicy before. The cole slaw looked terrible I didnt even want to try it. My friend liked his - grilled veggies with a bison burger on top.... More
