We made reservations a few days prior to coming in. When we arrived we were seated right away & water was on the table within seconds & our cheerful friendly waitress came by to ask what we wanted for drinks. We then went to check out the brunch tables. Food was kept warm in covered buffet trays - plenty to... More

I've eaten here many times. I see some reviewers have commented about the decor being dated and this is probably true. Things could be freshened up a bit, but MS has a farm brand so I'm not sure what they would change. We arrived after the lunch rush so things were quiet and leisurely. Waitress was friendly and attentive. I... More

We had a large group of family in town for our niece's wedding and visited The Machine Shed. Most of us had never visited The Machine Shed. We had a 30 minute wait, which isn't too bad for a group of 12. We enjoyed the wait browsing the little store within the restaurant. When we were seated, our waitress was... More

Excellent comfort food stop. It was a Friday, so no meat for me! Their battered fish was delicious and the rolls, slaw and warm apples that all are provided were delicious. You will not leave hungry from the Machine Shed.

We go there specifically for the Baked Potato Soup. It's more the consistancy of a stew. Great place to bring the whole family. I am not a huge meat eater, but my sons love it. Their haystack of onions is the best anywhere around!

We don't have one by us so every time we're in town we try to stop in. It's a little pricey but you do get a lot for your money and everything I've had thus far was excellent. They have these apples they bring to table and those are to die for. Service is wonderful too.

I probably eat here 12-15 times per year. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal. Always, very consistent and very good. The wait staff is very experienced.
