The cole slaw looked terrible I didnt even want to try it. My friend liked his - grilled veggies with a bison burger on top.... More

Love going here when I have my 4 year old because it has a great play area and good kid choices. I love the soup bar. Excellent soups and stews. Also great menu style where you select the meat and then decide if you want a salad a sandwich or other. They offer Mama's local salsa and chips too. Very... More

I love this place for lunch. Soup is great and burgers are fantastic. The soup bar is fun and lots of choices. Local beers on tap are always fresh and reasonable prices. Sometimes the wait can be long. it's a remodeled garage, so it's not fancy. Friendly staff!

The best clam chowder we have had anywhere (and have lived on all 7 continents!). The staff are always very friendly and efficient. Have recommended the Garage to all our friends.

The Garage always seems to have good soups and sandwiches. We stop whenever we are in town. Cool atmosphere and quality eats.

The garage has always been one of my favorites. It's a very local Bozeman lunch spot so gives you a great feel for the city. Best soup bar in town! You gotta try their blue moose clam chowder! Family friendly and great in the summer time because they have an outdoor patio.

I just love the Garage and when I go somewhere else I always wish I'd have gone to the Garage. Every menu item is delicious and the wait and cook staff are excellent, well-trained and always go the extra mile!

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.
