closed many years ago. It was a wonderful family restaurant. Started out a just breakfast and grew to lunch and some dinner evenings. We went there every Sunday morning for breakfast with our kids.

One known as The Potting Shed, now the SHED LOUNGE at Willy's Pub in Acton, Maine, the locals have really learned you do not have to drive an hour or two for great food... It is right here. Had a great Veal Chop two weeks ago, fantastic Halibut and the regular menu with center cut sirloin is not to be... More

We go to the Potting shed often and on Friday and Saturday nights they have a special menu that is always creative and tasty, cost is a little more that regular menu but really upscale eating. Willys Ale house is at one end of the building and the Potting Shed is at the other end of the building, the Ale... More

...But still not quite 'there'. Have been going back, as the new owners have made a lot of improvements- definitely cleaner, better menu, nice atmosphere. The meals are better, but are very average- can be hit or miss as far as quality. Not a restaurant that I would drive out of my way for. Prices are reasonable. Expect a long... More

On Route 109 in Acton the Potting Shed sets across the street from Acton apple orchards. The food is good, reasonable and it is a nice drive out when you want to explore the little town and rural Maine.

We eat at THE SHED at least two times each week and there is never a disappointment with the food. The staff is friendly and knows your drink order even before you get to your table. Chris Palladino is a very talented chef and the area is lucky to have him and his restaurant here in the York County Lakes... More

The Shed is a fun place to visit, and by far a hidden gem. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and the staff are very friendly and efficent.

Gave this Restaurant 3 tries last summer (2006). Twice for breakfast and once for dinner. Each time there were one or more problems. Both visits for Breakfast had similar problems, service slow, food late in coming, the food was just this side of warm, and when served one or more of the orders were wrong both times. The home fries... More
