Was planning to check out a different place for lunch but the line was long there so ended up at Garage Bar, been a time or two previously but this was the first for food. Decent looking beer list, not outside the norm in Louisville, lunch menu rather limited. A burger sounded good so I ordered the Cheeseburger, it came... More

We stumbled into the Garage Bar to get out of the rain this last Derby weekend. At first entrance our nostrils were hit with the body odor of a couple of unwashed patrons near the door. I was unhappy until Annie's Song by John Denver came in to mind as I thought "You fill up my senses". Then I was... More

While walking and exploring Louisville on a visit, my wife and I stumbled across the Garage Bar. We saw an old gas station with a lot of people hanging around it so, curious, we thought it might have been a museum piece as that's the kind of eclectic area it's in. Much to our surprise, it was a nice little... More

A great spot if you like to be outside and enjoy a great atmosphere. The patio was great as well as the food. We got there mid afternoon and the bartender seemed a bit like he wasn't happy to be there and not nice but still made a good drink. Later in the evening we came back and the bartender... More

My sister and I were staying in Louisville and decided to go to The Garage Bar for dinner. Such fun! We started with the homemade pimiento cheese and the pork meatballs. Both were excellent. We then had the mushroom pizza, hers with kale and my just as described on the menu. Delicious. But the highlight for me was my dessert:... More

Loved this place so much I opened a bar in Texas in a service station like it. If that doesn't say enough, the bartender was great and informative. Great drinks and food. Super hip atmosphere and who doesn't love outdoor Ping Pong?!

I like this place. The setting speaks to all ages. The outdoor seating with ping ping tables under light and fire pit ambiance demands approval. I love the conversion of old school garage to restaurant and bar! Starting with the drinks-- you will find an impressive selection of Bourbons and they always tempt me. But I dutifully resist as this... More

The pizza choices are unique. We had the mushroom with additional topping of kale and parmesan. The curried lentil soup and yam sides were yummy too. The atmosphere on the I side and out was casual and fun. Great experience and food!

We actually went here twice on our recent spring break vacation. The first night we just went for dessert, and the cherry jam that came with the chocolate cake was one of the best things I ate on my entire week in Kentucky. It was bonkers how delicious it was. I am so glad my kid wanted the cake and... More
