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.

I really like the Garage. The staff could be trained a bit better. It's a great casual dining place with good food - good prices but if your looking for the royal treatment or are in a hurry this is not it.

went by around 2pm on a Thursday, plenty of people already seated and eating, guy in the kitchen right in front of the front door. Looked at me twice, but never said a word to me. I stood at the "wait to be seated" sign and then was joined by a separate party for another 5 minutes. finally left.

Great soups especially after skiing in the AM. All the sandwiches are large and well prepared and service is with a smile. Nice outdoors setting area in spring and summer.

My kids always like to go to the Garage because of the decor - order from a license plate! The food is delicious too.

From the outside it appears to be an old garage turned into an average restaurant... but it is far more! Great food and service.. good variety on the menu. Worth the visit!

We pass this restaurant in an old garage every time we visit Bozeman but decided to give it a try. They were very busy so had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. The service was faster than we expected and the staff was super friendly. The soup shack inside the restaurant is... More

Garage is the correct definition for this restaurant. We had both lunch and dinner here, and the burgers were excellent. Interior very true to the name of the place, but despite the rought look, the food was great!

Thank Thomas W
