My fiancee and I stayed at the hotel next to this restaurant. While she goes to work, I'm usually on my own and bumming around. Well the place we stayed at didn't have much of a breakfast option so I decided to go over and check out what The Machine Shed had to offer. The waitress I had was very... More

We stopped here on our way home from a concert in Milwaukee. We had a great breakfast. My wife had a skillet. Try the Shed Hash browns. We were here on a Saturday. I know they have a huge brunch on Sundays.

haven't been here for awhile but always enjoy it. Great food (family style) and the breads they give you before the meal arrives and hot cinnamon apples are wonderful. Kids got grilled cheese and ate it all. Wife got the beef brisket sandwich which was hard to eat with the very slim bun but I had the Heartland Combo that... More

I was on way to business meeting and was google searching for breakfast spot. What a pleasant surprise. Decor is old farm stuff. I had basic eggs plate . Bacon crispy, hash browns nicely browned and poached eggs done right. Service top notch and price reasonable. Highly recommend!

Very good soups. The sandwiches were ok but I wouldn't get them again. Might go back and try breakfast. The coffee was weak.

My husband and I met several friends for lunch at the Machine Shed. When we arrived at 11, the restaurant was fairly empty. By noon, almost all the tables were filled. I don't find the name of the restaurant too appealing, but the food was good. Thankfully, there were a few "light lunch" offerings on the menu. I chose a... More

I stop here after a long day of meetings. I was greeted by a friendly host and a sweet waitress. Ordered the soup of the day - it was a good small size portion and the liver and onions. Meal was delicious and it came with 2 sides plus coleslaw, roll, bread, butter, and apples. I licked my plate clean... More

Visited for lunch, Patty was outstanding waitstaff, salad bar was plentiful & well kept. Leaving a pitcher of water at the table was genius. I had the half rack of ribs....they were good, maybe since I'm from the south it was a different preparation, by no means were they not eatable, I just expected more smoke flavor. The BBQ sauce...

Popped in for dinner on a Sunday night around 7:00. They have a huge dinner menu. Had the warm pretzels with cheese fondue as appetizer, and had the Chicken Fried Chicken as entrée. Appetizer was very good. The entrée was good enough, but a bit bland. But it did the job. The desserts looked amazing, but I'm training for ran... More
