First time visitor. Near Hampton Inn in Appleton not far from airport. Country styled inside and outside. Plenty of seating and parking spaces available. No masks. Salad bar. Steak was very tasty. Homemade bread. Too full to try deserts but they looked delicious. Staff were...pleasant and helpful.More

Whenever we are in Appleton, this is our go to place for breakfast. Situated close to hotels and the mall, the food and service is outstanding. This time Tina took care of us and made sure we had a wonderful experience. My wife had the...Pecan Roll and The Farmer's Benedict. Probably could have gotten by with one or the other as the Pecan Roll is big. I had the Hungry Man's Breakfast. All of the food was delicious. We are from North Carolina now, but get back to New London or Appleton now and then. This is the place to go!More

We went here for breakfast and we were seated right away we didn't have to wait at all which was extremely nice. The waitress was nice and on top of refilling our beverages we never had to wait long for our refills. We both decided...to go with Traditional Eggs Benedict and shredded hashbrowns with cheese and onions. Our meals were so good they hit the spot. My friend took half of her hashbrowns and eggs Benedict and she said it was so tasty and good the next days as it was when it was fresh. They offer pies too but they didn't have any flavor i wanted but they offer pies. They also have a small little shop that sells a bunch of neat things you could buy for yourself or as gifts. Will so be going back to eat here again.More

We stopped in not knowing it was a chain until we saw pictures on the menu. Its a take on Cracker Barrell. Nothing to write home about but I am giving 5 stars for the outstanding service. Sandy was amazing!!! just hands down nicest guy....We had the potatoes skins, french onion, and loaded potato soup. Again nothing to brag about but the service. Thanks Sandy!More

I've recently fallen back in love with the machine shed after not going for a while. We didn't stop going for any special reason, other than we loved away from the area. The staff was friendly, and having a little one im always embarrassed a...bit by the mess as we can only get it so clean without a rag, but we weren't treated poorly for the mess and tipped well.More

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Was the restaurant busy? Maybe it was the time of day. When we visited for dinner the restaurant was quiet and we had an enjoyable meal.
