This is my local, just a few blocks away, and I am very lucky to have it. I ve enjoyed it from the first time I saw it, and then it got reviewed on Diner, Drive Ins and Dives (or some variation of that name) and it got zoo-ed for a LONG time. Now things are calmer, which makes me... More

Pros: Picnic Salad and Burgers. Cons: Their fries are potato wedges. Home made ketchup- too sweet. Pros: Cute and cozy. Cons: I got my entree about 15 minutes before my date. Pros: Very sweet waitress on Thursday Cons: No ranch. "We don't believe in it" I don't believe I'll be back.

Fabulous food here, and good beer/wine available. Minimal dining space, with some communal tables on the back patio, but it's part of the charm. Historical building turned unique gastro-pub. Haven't had a single dish there I haven't liked, and most I've loved. Have spent a year trying to perfect their "french fries" (they're not fries, they're monster 1/2 baked/ 1/2... More

The food wasn't bad, but I ordered the lamb shank and it was two slices of leg of lamb. It tasted good, but not enough, and kind of pricey. I'm glad my wife ordered a burger which was huge and pretty good, so I ate a quarter of hers. Good beers, nice patio.

We had a nice dinner here, my first time. It was not too full at 6 pm, but had gotten much more crowded later. Our tri tip salad with arugula was great, as was the curry chicken with maple glaze. The Allagash White (wheat beer) was outstanding! The service was good.The prices were not cheap, but reasonable. They do not... More

Four friends and I visited on a Saturday evening. Having heard good things about the burgers, four of us ordered them. Two of us asked for them cooked medium and got well done. The other two didn't complain about their doneness, but nobody thought the burgers were worth $11.

Lewis, the owner, had just spent the day laying the wood floor at his new establishment that will open in late August at the corner of Naglee and Park in the Rose Garden. We are looking forward to his new place. The Garage was fun, light, casual and a good place to hang out. The kitchen crew and counter/bar staff... More

Great place, nice outdoor area. Spoke with the owner. Restaurant is set in an old garage. Very cool and personalized service. Had the trout: cooking was perfect and crispy. Side of asparagus was great too.

I've been here a few times now over a few years and now that my boyfriend and I have moved into the neighborhood I wanted to take him to check it out. I've only ever been there on the weekend before and the seating is pretty limited so we made a point of going during the week so we could... More
