“This is not Cracker Barrel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We are from Florida and while visiting Wisconsin decided to try the Machine Shed as it had the same appearance as our Cracker Barrel's in the South. I always like to try local places and stay away from familiar chain restaurants when I travel...sometimes it's good and sometimes not. Unfortunately the quality of food at the Machine Shed did not meet our expectations. I had the turkey dinner with mash potatoes and dressing. The dressing was chunks of seasoned celery and what appeared to be soggy croutons. The mash potatoes were lumpy and had an awful after taste that I couldn't figure out. The turkey appeared to be sliced off a turkey roll of some kind. The gravy was probably the best thing on my plate. Others in my group had shepherd's pie, cheese curds, and chicken fingers. The breading on the cheese curds and chicken fingers tasted funny and the shepherd's pie was just okay. Dinner for four including soda and tea came to $78...in my opinion it was money wasted. The parking lot is usually empty and now I know why.

“Good Game Day Breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went here while in town for a Green Bay Packers game. While it was busy, it was still delicious, and we only had to wait 10-minutes for a table! Friendly service and good food to start off our game day Sunday!

“It Was Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Stopped in here as it was next to hotel after watching Packers game. Arrived just after 8pm Service was quick and good no complaints. Food was average, nothing special just o.k., it was hot and bland but filling after cold Packers Game. Would we stop in here again? No not because it was terrible but there are much better places to eat out there. We all ate different meals, Shepards pie, Turkey dinner and Cheese Curds and Chicken tenders.

“It's food thats all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Don't know how long it will stay open based on the number of people at the dinner hour. Bar activity was nonexistant.
