The Garage Restaurant Review

: Loud, chaotic and ultimately designed for big groups, The Garage has 25 pool tables and 20 bowling lanes, and it's frequently packed with patrons enjoying a game-filled night out. The one-time 1928 auto repair shop honors its blue-collar roots with extensive chrome and vinyl accents. Above-average food and a respectable wine list keep everyone well fed and hydrated. Depending on your appetite, choose the soup and salad combo or order a small plate entrée such as the fried ravioli with a pesto/whipped cream dipping sauce. If a hearty meal is what you're craving, dig into Mike’s Mom’s Meatloaf combining beef, lamb and special seasonings, which is paired with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots. Bar food --- yes, there's also a full bar --- ranges from rustic pizzas and burgers to sandwiches with fries.
