Great concept and lived up to the hype in the soup department. Good bison burgers and nice to have the salad and not just fries option. It's an old service station, not sure about that mirrored restroom but cool set up. One member of our party had the chicken soup and the rest of us us wish we had. Busy... More

There are many lunch places in Bozeman and 4 Corners that offer good handmade food for varying prices. Some are pricey and some are cheap but good.This soup place next to the Western Cafe is lousy deal compared to the others. The soup is okay but you get a small cup and no refill. If you get a grilled cheese... More

I was in Bozeman and wanted some good soup. I was told that this was the best place for soup in town by several people. I went in to order some soup to go. The man serving the soup did not smile or greet me, he appeared to not want to be bothered. I asked him about the chicken soup... More

Good place to take family, kids, grandparents, etc. Every one can have a great time. Good BBQ, great burgers, funky atmosphere and good beer selection. We come all the time and consider it our neighborhood restaurant!

American Comfort food is known for being hi in calories and the same wherever one goes. That is not the case at the Garage. From the moment you are seated and receive your menu- made out of expired vehicle license plated- you will enjoy the difference. Their burgers come in beef, chicken, and bison in varying sized to fill the... More

I like how many choices of soup there are. You can visit frequently without having repeats. This is the place to be on cold Montana afternoons.

My daughter and I went here for dinner due to recommendations from a couple friends. We were confused about the great reviews as our experience was not good. The hostess at front was rude and not helpful, a little inexperienced it seemed. The soup was very over priced but tasty. I never did get the bread that was suppose to... More

My wife, son, granddaughter and I went to the Garage twice when we were visiting late January, 2017. It is a refurbished garage done in wood but updated with modern bathrooms. It has a play area for the kids and it's dining areas are big & open with booths and wooden tables. It is a very friendly & comfortable place... More

This place is adorable! Great soup, salad, sandwich combos for lunch. They also serve booze! The interior is a really cool atmosphere, like a car garage (hence the name!) There are tables with waiters but for your soup, you go up the counter where you can sample the options and pick your own toppings.
