I love this place for lunch. Soup is great and burgers are fantastic. The soup bar is fun and lots of choices. Local beers on tap are always fresh and reasonable prices. Sometimes the wait can be long. it's a remodeled garage, so it's not fancy. Friendly staff!

We enjoyed a good lunch in this converted garage before heading to Big Sky. They were rather crowded for a Tuesday. We waited about five minutes to be seated and a few more before getting menus (attached to old license plates). The young woman who took our order was attentive but never smiled. The other staff members were very friendly.... More

The best clam chowder we have had anywhere (and have lived on all 7 continents!). The staff are always very friendly and efficient. Have recommended the Garage to all our friends.

The Garage always seems to have good soups and sandwiches. We stop whenever we are in town. Cool atmosphere and quality eats.

The garage has always been one of my favorites. It's a very local Bozeman lunch spot so gives you a great feel for the city. Best soup bar in town! You gotta try their blue moose clam chowder! Family friendly and great in the summer time because they have an outdoor patio.

If you're in the mood for soup this is the place to go! It has good soup and sandwiches and has character.

I just love the Garage and when I go somewhere else I always wish I'd have gone to the Garage. Every menu item is delicious and the wait and cook staff are excellent, well-trained and always go the extra mile!

The Soup Shack is excellent! There are many choices of soup and a variety toppings. They have Granny's Chicken soup, Pork Chili Verde, and Tomato to name a few.

Good food, great soup bar on a cold day. Poor service...waited forever for our waitress to make an appearance. We realize it's a bit laid back here, but c'mon. Probably wouldn't do again.
