We go for the incredible muffins, but we didn't know about Sunday brunch till now. By 8:30 AM the place was full. The eggs and bacon were the best. Plenty of selection and the food was hot and well-stocked.

Description
In 1978, we opened our first Machine Shed Restaurant on the outskirts of Davenport, Iowa. We had just 100 seats, but we started with a powerful commitment. That was a five-word constitution: “Dedicated to the American Farmer.” That dedication meant we worked hard to have a restaurant that wasn’t just ‘farm themed’ but something that farmers could be proud of. We serve chef driven, farm fresh fare, inspired by the seasons. Our food is made from scratch, daily.
