The restaurant's website states: "Our venue fosters a great interactive environment that offers something for everyone.". If so, then I would say the Garage BB&R does an OK job of doing many things without really excelling at any of them. The menu is unremarkable and, in comparison to similar establishments, not particularly varied. (You can download the menu from their... More

This restaurant/bar was busy with a pool league but that is no excuse for poor service. No one acknowledged our presence as we were sitting there waiting for service at our table. If you are busy at least wave at the table and motion you will be there shortly. My friend went up to the bar where she was ignored... More

This place has a fun design, located in eau claire, it is a nice alternative to the regular pub. They usually have nice specials on, and the food is quite good. The last time I came was for wing night, and the wings were cooked nicely and a good size. I think the best part about this bar is the... More

I stopped here after working out at the YMCA in Eau Claire. I am still looking for that perfect Mushroom Burger. I ended up having a Mozzarella Guacamole Burger. It was very good. But for the price ($16.00) I paid, it should be perfect! I would give it a 8/10. I don't know is this the average price for a... More

This is one of the only "Originals" in Eau Claire market that is still there today which tells you they are doing something right. Good tables/ food/ friendly staff equals a good time.

The Garage in Calgary's Eau Claire Market was a disappointing choice for lunch. The food is moderate at best. I had the club house sandwich, the bread was soggy and sandwich was bland for taste. Turkey is sliced deli style. At least the fries were good. There are better options in the area for quality of food & value. Service... More

We went to the Garage en route to a movie and explained that we needed to be out quickly. Our impression was that they had severely understaffed the place due to low demand at Eau Claire Market, which has struggled to draw crowds for years. Our waitress was polite but appeared to be the only one serving in a huge... More

The place has many TV's and also billiards. I would suggest if you are into pool, this is a place to go. The cooks have recently changed and so has the food. I found that some of the favorites are no longer on the menu, and that hurts. The food, is ok, but nothing special. Beer and sports atmosphere is... More

I hadn't been here for a year but have been frequenting the place once a week the last three months or so. It is hard to find pool halls anymore so they fill a need in the community. They have both coin operated tables ($1) or if you have time you can rent tables for $12/hr. They even turn one... More
