I recently hooked up with some friends I hadn't seen in 3 years for Sunday Brunch. They suggested The Machine Shed. So nice to escape the chain restaurants for something with a genuine "Family Owned" atmosphere. The food and service was terrific, great menu selection along with the buffet. It easy to get to, just off Highway 41. Also fun... More

My husband and I stopped at Machine Shed for an early dinner, and were very pleased with the quick service and friendly server. I ordered a turkey dinner and enjoyed every bit of it, including the leftovers I took home. We have never been disappointed in any of the food we order, and look forward to eating there again when...
