Great food

Philly cheesesteak sandwich was our waiters favorite, excellent! Texas toothpicks, slivers of jalapeños deep fried & best buttermilk pie so far on our trip! Ambiance could be brushed up, painted...friendly staff!

I have eaten at the Shed many times over the years and something has gone amiss. The service was slow and inattentive. The food was below par and the entire dining experience was a dining disaster. The restaurant must have changed hands and hired new cooks and wait staff. So sad for those of us who used to enjoy every... More

If you want real country food, then this should be the place! I ordered the grilled pork chop, and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I also got to try my friend's fried steak and it was amazing!! However, onion rings' batter could have been better, and watch out for the dessert.. They were not as good as they were... More

Eating here for years, I like the chicken fried steak gravy and potatoes with green beans. Cabbage is killer as are the chicken and dumplings. All deserts are great as is the wait staff.

My family and I have eaten here too many times to count and have always been happy. The food, cheeseburgers to chicken fried steak is very good. The staff is always friendly and excellent. And don't leave without trying at least one dessert! I will definitely be back!

Our first and last stop at the shed can not even be descried an eating experience. After waiting an hour, half of the order had been served, the other half wrong. As Manager was apologizing, the BLT's came without Tomatoes and only bacon crumbs. The others orders were poor in quality, and don't sit near the door. Half of the... More

Brought our best friends for a good hot breakfast!!! What a disappointment!! Food was cold service was slow. After complaining our food was taken back and still not very warm. We were only charged for our coffee! I would have rather paid full price and eaten a warm breakfast. Get it together guys!!!
