Went there for Valentine's Day Dinner and it was not like it use to be. I had the Surf & Turf and asked for the Turf to be medium it came rare. My husband got the stuffed pork chop and the stuffing was terrible. Must have a new cook.

Homey environment with a no frills atmosphere. There is a free starter which alone almost filled me up. I started with the burnt ends which was the right choice. Very tasty with a good portion. Sauce was tangy but not overpowering, combination of pork and beef were moist and you could tell they were smoked right. Main was a Rib... More

Vast menu of comfort food. Double Cut Iowa-Pork Chop is a winner. Have had Sunday Brunch in the past. Good sized tables for family time and to relax.

A group of 8 after a meeting. Most have never been to a Machine Shed. They all thought it was great. The food is fresh and fast. Home style cooking at it's finest.

We were out for Friday night fish but I decided to have the shrimp dinner and friend had the beef brisket. They bring out Cole slaw, bread and apple pie filling. My friends brisket was very good. My shrimp however was way over cooked to almost burnt. I did eat a few and couldn't chew them. I wasn't going to... More

We were visiting Milwaukee and looking for a good old fashioned hearty breakfast. We found it here. First, we loved the atmosphere-kind of like Cracker Barrel. The portions are huge. My wife and I split an entree and couldn't finish it. Pancakes were great-I think made from wheat flour and served with real butter and warm syrup. The meat was... More

Home-style comfort food. Good prices. I called ahead and my order was ready right after I arrived for take-out. I think they also deliver to the hotel.

Their prices are a little high for what you get. The food is OK but not good enough to justify the high prices. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice however.

Ate here after spending the night next door. Food was good, service was a little slow for not being very busy, kids got restless.
