I had a meeting at this restaurant while I was in town. The food was hot, hearty, and well done. It was served quickly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. If you are hungry and looking for that 'down home' type feel - this is a stop for you.

We have never been disappointed by the food and my daughter loves that her meal comes to the table in a trailer. I would highly recommend.

I grew up eating at Machine Shed on special occasions, and for brunch, living in Waukesha Wisconsin. I was pleased to see a Machine Shed in Appleton on the way home from a road trip. We had lunch here and it was every bit as charming as I remember from my childhood! The server was friendly, but what I loved... More
