“Fun atmosphere, mediocre food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

The Garage has a very fun atmosphere - live music playing a lot of evenings. However the food was mediocre at best and the service was not that great. We sat for 15 minutes at a table before anyone greeted us. We all had just average sandwiches - nothing to rave about. We came back later in the evening for drinks and music and that experience was much better.

“fun place, great location, yummy food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Located in downtown Columbus this is a nice place for lunch, dinner or just for snacks. Fun to sit outside and people watch while you eat. We love their nachos, grouper tacos, Bacon and Bleu burger and the Chicken fajita wrap with the jalepeno tortilla. Our favorite place to wind down on Fridays!

“Great break after a long drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

Driving back to Michigan from Orlando looked this up on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Wonderful! I had the Reuben and my husband had the beef brisket sandwich. Both were great! Love the cole slaw and to be able to sit outside after being in the car for hours was a nice break. Server was great and very knowledgable of menu items. Would come again.

“Great Nachos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

The Garage nachos are awesome. It is a nice place to have a cold glass of brew and a few appetizers. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

“For the young set”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

If you enjoy dancing and meeting people then visit the garage in the evening. Food is offered and looked good. It is within walking distance of the Hotel Indigo.
