The owner of a near by shop suggested that we eat lunch at The Shed and talked about how good it is so we went. We had dinner plans and this was a late lunch (3:00) so we ordered a cheese burger to split, along with sweet potato fries. It was not busy in there at all but my husband... More

I had been years ago and didn't leave room for pie. I left room and was not as impressed as I had hoped. Service getting seated was great. Service taking order was great. Wait for food about average. Return to ask about pie--we had to wave her down. It did look like they were short staffed though. I had the... More

It was a delicious piece of coconut creme pie that I enjoyed as my lunch. There was so many great options it was hard to choose so I will have tp go back for more pie! What a lovely quaint town with eclectic shops and friendly owners and staff. Loved my visit! Will return soon to try breakfast next time... More

This was a fun place to visit with friends. Our waitress was new, but acted like she just landed on the planet. She didn't even know what kind of soft drinks they served. Anyway, had the cheesesteak (overcooked) and the chocolate dream pie. I'd suggest the chocolate meringue instead. I'm not sure if they make their own whipped cream, but... More

The Shed is popular with car people and motorcycle riders alike. The home cooked food is well worth the ride and the service has always been good for us even when they are busy. Don't forget to try the desserts also. My wife and I have made that our turning around point several times and never been disappointed.

The restaurant had a 30 minute wait to be seated, and when we were seated, it was very crowded and loud. It was during the arts festival, so maybe it's not that busy at other times. The food took about 30 minutes to be delivered. The veggie plate lunch was served in four styrofoam containers on a diner plate, pretty... More

This was our second trip to this restaurant and a completely different experience. The chicken fried steak was full of grizzle...could not cut it with a knife. We informed our waitress and she told us to tell the cashier! She did not offer to replace the meal. We told the cashier, who ended up being the manager. He did not... More

This used to be the best place to go and eat home cooked meals. The food is still good but the service has gone down hill. U will wait long time to get seated. I live close by and have eaten here many times. We don't go anymore cause the service is terrible. The last 3 times we went couldn't... More

We got breakfast and it came out cold. Not warm, but cool to the touch. The eggs were very small. The service was OK. They really need to upgrade their bathrooms. The is only one for men and one for ladies. They are incredibly small and have wooden floors. It looked like their business had dropped off. They did not... More
