Many kinds of soup to choose from. I had the pork chili verde...very good. They let you try before you make a commitment. I had a grilled cheese with it and the bread was great. My husband had a bison burger. He thought it was great. This is not just a soup place. But you can get soup to go... More

So when everyone says "great outside seating ', I didn't realize that they only have outside seating. Lucky for us the rain held off long enough to enjoy this unique restaurant. We enjoyed the soup and sandwiches and good service. There was a short wait on the night we went as this is a popular place in Bozeman.

Here's a local favorite. Old garage decorated with car parts except a fun bathroom that was completely mirrored, including the ceiling. And other Art Deco touches. Menu was bound in 2 old license plates. Enjoyed their mesquite bison burger with one of the many versions,mine BBQ. Served on good bun, yet had that unappetizing grilled taste, together with lettuce, tomato,... More

We went here on a beautiful evening and were seated outside. It was a bit noisy because we were right along Main Street, but that did not deter from the good food. The menus are encased in old license plates, the burgers have car names. The craft brews and Sangria were terrific. The selection of burgers is endless - fixed... More

Enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Garage. Loved their options for burgers with locally sourced beef, bison, chicken and they even had a veggie burger option. I enjoyed a perfect Cobb salad that hit the spot. Would not recommend if you are in a hurry. It took us about 30 mins to get seated and the pace of turning over... More

Real, homemade soup, lots of it, with garnish and a half sandwich. I was stuffed! And it was excellent, and great, quirky decor! Well worth the journey and good prices as well.

The Garage is a fun local hang out. Outdoor seating soaking up the Sept sun was a fun way to spend a Sat afternoon. We had a large group and willing to break up into smaller groups but waited a while to get seated. License plate menus are creative. Menu was varied and all good! We had the Cobb salad... More

Food is good and so is the beer. Open air dining in the summer and shoulder seasons. A local favorite hang out.

Just driving by and needed to stop for lunch. This place looks like fun from the outside and with the retro set up it was nice to look around. The food was very good and being able to sit on the patio was an added plus. Different burgers than the norm all very good.

Thank Jim C
