Good food, however this location is not up to the same standards as the Des Moines location. The bathrooms were very tired, and the stalls were small and had very little room to maneuver when you opened the door. As I was leaving the restaurant, I had trouble walking thru the people waiting to be seated and this was complicated... More

A large volume of food. Good for kids. Staff is very friendly. Feel sorry for the uniforms they have to wear.

good old down home cooking! good wait staff, and the menu serves all tastes and is varied. A must is their cinnamon rolls...but you better be hungry!

The Machine Shed isn't fine dining, it's country dining. It tends to be consistent in what you get as far as flavor etc. If you've never been here, you should definitely experience it at least once. They have a gift shop that is truly interesting. They are known for their Pies, breads, pork chops, family style meals.

Our first experience here. The amount of food was overwhelming. My grandson was delighted with the never-ending bread bowl. The food was very good. Portions were over generous. Mashed potatoes are are homemade. Pork chops are huge. Staff is pleasant and kind. Service is excellent.

Traditional Midwest food. Great pork chops any way you want them. It is hard to beat a 2 inch think chop. Reservations are needed during the weekend.

If you are feeling lonely and haven't had a good home cooked meal in awhile. They have some of the best home fries around and the rest is good too. Have fun you won't be disappointed.

Number 1 of 239 restaurants in the Quad Cites? Ok, sure. When we think of things that don't add up, this would be one of them. We have tried it a number of times over the last few years and have come away disappointed, every time. Not once, but every time. We had the Rib-eye and the New York strip.... More
