The food was good and priced fairly. There is a nice gift shop on site also. I liked the 1900's farm motif they use to decorate. The food took about 50 minutes to arrive, far to long. Everybody has an off day so we will try it again when back in this area.

Excellent on all accounts. Family style fixins (cottage cheese, coleslaw, rolls etc. ) served in addition to the huge portions of the regular meal. Everything tasted great and no one left disappointed.

I went to the Machine Shed at the perfect time, during a Packers game..There were only 3 other tables of guests so the service was terrific...Their menu is large so it was getting difficult for me to pick a meal, when my waitress came by and asked me what I wanted to drink. She then told me the special was... More

We went to the Machine shed on a Friday evening at the end of July for their popular Fridtay Fish Fry and we left impressed. Northeast Wisconsin and Wisconsin as a whole is well known for Friday Fish that has tradition for many years. Interior as you guessed is done in a farm shed style décor and brings back memories...

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.

For the food choices it was not worth their price for this buffet. The food was not hot and a poor selection especially for the resturant is famous for their variety of meat

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
