The Shed has changed a little bit. Maybe new owners? Food still good especially breakfast when you are traveling thru Tehachapi. Very clean restrooms, which is nice. They have great fudge. Their gift shop area is almost gone -- it used to be such a fun place to buy little gifts. Warm and cozy inside the Shed. I like it... More

The Shed serves up very good home style favorites like large burgers, chili and, if you get there early, chicken pot pie and deserts

It's not a professional buffet. It looks like they hired someone to come in and set up some Chaffing Dishes to keep the food warm. The Roast Beef/Tri-tip with Red Peppers. Really? Who puts Red Peppers all over roast beef BEFORE you serve it to your customer. Wait I know, someone who wants to cover up the horrible cut of... More

Returned several times - soup & salad bar okay for the price. But rest of menu leaves much to be desired. Just have not got it together yet and new management has been there a year now.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Lone Pine. The Shed has a spacious, rustic dining room, comfortable seating, and a remarkably friendly staff. My husband and daughter had sandwiches, which were huge, and stuffed with turkey and cheese. I tried the soup and salad bar--very fresh vegetables, and lots to choose from. The chicken noodle soup was... More

The Shed (former Apple Shed) is a great place to have a good, inexpensive meal. Their sald bar is fantastic with a great variety of different veggies and other goodies. They also have soups which are very delish. We have always gone for soup and salad, but they have much more on the menu. Besides that they sell hand and... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The layout and ambiance is a bit like a self- serve homestyle location, but the service and food were way better. The salad bar included an array of fresh items including unusual additions like seaweed and stuffed grape leaves (both excellent). The open plate chicken and the club sandwich were excellent and massive. This... More

I was traveling from Texas to California and discovered this by using Trip Advisor. It was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. We both ate from the buffet lunch Everything was amazingly good. We also enjoyed the family friendly rustic atmosphere.

The Shed is a fun restaurant in Tehachapi located just east of the Train Museum adjacent to the railroad tracks. The menu has lots of choices & I really enjoy the soup & salad bar is wonderful. They have 3 soups daily & tons of salad toppings. In addition, they have a very nice bakery. On the weekends local musicians... More
