You don’t really go to the Garage to eat. Still while there you may choose to have something to go along with your beer or cocktail. And if you order something chances are you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This isn’t just any old bar food but bar food created with care.
The small but varied menu has something for everyone. There are small plates, soups and salads, and large plates with each category consisting of six or so items. Add to that a few burgers and pizzas and you have a pretty decent selection to choose from. And the food is pretty dang good!
On my last visit I had the Quesadilla filled with blackened chicken. smoked cheddar, black beans and corn. A little pile of lettuce chiffonade and poblano sour cream filled out the plate. An interesting twist to a standard item and fresh ingredients elevate this bar food to a new level. And other items on the menu follow the same recipe. There is always just a slight twist, executed well and created with good and tasty ingredients.
But one of the nicest things about the Garage is their willingness to handle large groups (I take a group of 50 – 60 in there a couple times a year). They are always gracious and happy to serve us – and we are a bit of a motley crew. That attitude, the 18 billiards tables and 14 lanes of bowling, make this a great place to enjoy that good, innovative bar food.
