We have been to this place twice now and have not been disappointed. The food is always great - you have to taste the loaded potato soup - and even if you take your food to go it is made with love. Great value for the money!

Needing special food for health reasons, dining out is always a bit of a challenge. These folks make it easy and I was able to enjoy a flavorful and filling meal without blowing my diet. A very tasty BBQ steak salad was the main course - with some pretty healthy "sides". The price was reasonable - I'd go back there... More

I met some friends at this restaurant. The parking lot was almost full but there wasn't any wait when we checked in. I had the prime rib and it was really good. It was cooked the way I ordered it and it wasn't fatty. The staff was friendly and the service was quick

We stumbled on Machine Shed while traveling. It's convenient to I-80, and the staff was very friendly. On two occasions, we had the meat loaf, country-fried steak, chicken pot pie, and pot roast. We liked all of them, and the applesauce (really apple pie filing) was a real hit. The restaurant and menu suggest Cracker Barrel, so expect a lot... More

I ate here on Veteran's Day after spending the day in Davenport at an auction. I read about the place in my AAA Guide Book and then four ladies at the auction recommended eating there vs. the fast food chains in the area. Due to Veterans Day the place was jammed packed at 5:30 pm. The Parking lot was almost... More

Great dinner meal! Large freshly prepared portions. Service was very good. The fare is decidedly farm fresh American. This is a very popular place, so go early. They do have an intimate bar with full service, but you have to inform the management when you check in to wait because the bar is tended only on an as needed basis.... More

I have been to the Shed several times. My food has always been good. Service is usually excellent. A little on the pricey side. I have never been dissatisfied. Food or Service. Good food is worth paying for. Really nice atmosphere. Just a little noisy but most good places are. I do recommend this place to family and friends. Hope... More

The food was very good. I had the double pork chop and it was so tender and tasty. The cole slaw was served family style and was very good.
