This was recommended to go while I was visiting Louisville. It's in what they call NuLu; an up and coming neighborhood. I came on a Thursday night looking for a fun scene....which was not the case when I walked in. I guess this place is hopping in the summer months because of their outdoor space. I wanted to grab a...

Sampled some great foods! We had the ham tasting platter- the carrot and redeye sauces were great, as well as the bread that came with it. Also tried the wheatberry salad and roasted squash. They all had unique flavors and our server Elliott was great.

Visiting a friend who lives close by and walks to the Garage Bar. In warm weather you can sit outside. This past weekend was NOT outside weather. Good selection of drinks, cozy atmosphere. Great pizza.

Garage Bar is not your average bar. The food is a eclectic mix for a bar with country ham samplers, oysters (raw and cooked) and an interesting variety of good, wood oven baked pizzas. The country ham sampler is great and has three of the best producers around, Broadbent, Benton's and Colonel Newsomes. I've also enjoyed the raw oysters and... More

We enjoyed fantastic brick oven pizzas and excellent IPA beers. The atmosphere is unique, but laid back; the service was fantastic and the pizzas were tasty and hot out of the hearth. A great down-to-earth place to consider for your next outing.

We loved this place. The ham menu at brunch is worth the visit! The southern grits, bacon, egg and red eye gravy was incredible. The spicy bloody mary is really tasty. The pizzas looked amazing, but we were too full to try one. Service was very friendly, but a tad slow. We weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter.... More

Wonderfully diverse menu selections. Especially fun if you can sit outside. Try the turkey wing appetizer and the spaghetti squash.

Loved this place. Very neat decor - an old car garage...turned into a restaurant. This place is not at all what I expected from Louisville (stereotypes!) - very hip younger crowd of millennials. Cool food and drinks - very pleasant random stop that is totally worth it! Go Kentucky!

First off, the food was GREAT. We had 1/2 dz oysters & corn pizza. Service was AWFUL. Scruffy bartender with shorts half way off his rear, didn't even look up & verbally acknowledge us for 4-5 min. When I asked for beer recommendations, he pointed to the list and said "they're right here." When our food arrived, it sat at... More
