Great place that keeps it simple. Really good food at fair prices. Ask about the special of the day.

The Garage Bar & Grill is a great place to stop for a fill-up. Excellent food, a friendly staff and ice cold craft beer on tap - the local pub trifecta. Don't miss the 420 burger.

The Garage is a cool restaurant located in an old gas station/garage. We sat outside in the Michigan summer sunshine. I ordered a basic burger - nothing fancy. I swear that burger was the best I've ever had.! Seriously. If you are visiting that area of Michigan RUN to this place!!! Bravo Garage!!

We were exploring Northport, and decided to eat at the Garage on a Saturday around 2pm. Small place, with limited seating. Good IPA beer selection. We had 1/2 order of the pulled pork nachos as an appetizer. It was huge & had great taste but a bit dry. Definitely needs more than the tiny cups of salsa & sour cream... More

Found the place on trip advisor while making our way up the penisula. The butternut squash soup was incredible and our server recommended the smoked wings which were amazing. The white fish sandwich was also very good. It's not very big but has a lot of personality. The garage doors open to the patio outside. Our server was super friendly.... More

We have eaten here several times this summer. The most recent was fantastic. We ordered a half order of the Smoked Pulled Pork Nachos and one of the daily specials which consisted of 2 pork cutlets served with 2 sides. The Nachos were unbelievable! It was a portion large enough to feed at least 2 people maybe more. It was... More

We went for dinner. Food was great and service good. Will go back when we get another chance. We have eaten at the Garage before and find it a very good place to have dinner or lunch. Never tried breakfast.

This informal restaurant has great food. We had a large group and the server went out of her way to promptly take drink orders, answer questions about the menu, serve the food, and keep up with beverage refills. And a great atmosphere being in a former auto repair shop. Be sure to stop by the next time you're up on... More
