We loved our breakfasts at the Red Light Garage, especially chatting with the "regulars" over coffee! So many antiques and cool vintage items on the walls, and the food and service was great. Try the breakfast burrito!

We've had breakfast here a few times on our way to Lookout Ski Area. It's a fun visual environment but the food is always just a little 'off'. This morning we were treated to the very loud commentary of a group of locals who seem to gather there every day and proclaim about current events. It would have seemed charming... More

We've only had breakfast here but found it tasty with good sized portions. It's clearly a favorite with the locals so that adds a certain je ne sais quoi as well. Service is fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable and the food is just fine!

Nice folks, good eats, casual environment. Lots of neat old stuff to look at on the walls and ceiling while dining. Huckleberry ice cream is recommended for dessert.

Overall, an average meal in a very quirky place. Had the huckleberry pancake (yep, just one medium plate sized pancake). It did taste good, though. Service was good and the meal came fairly quick.

This is a very eclectic place with an interesting past. It was busy when we visited and the service was slow. The burger was ordinary, but the fries were great. Great, friendly people like you find in most of Wallace. Great ice cream too.

The Red Light Garage is interesting from the outside, through the dining rooms and even into the restrooms. It's not on old Route 66, but it had the feel of it. The food was casual, very tasty. We really enjoyed just looking around the restaurant at the memorabilia and antiques everywhere - it was impossible to be bored there. For... More

Very local centered -- we felt and were treated very oddly as though we didn't belong. Food was decent -- very much like home cooked Took FOREVER to get menus, get our order in and get coffee. Did not opt to return.
