I had the pot roast and wife had chicken pot pie. Pot roast fell apart. Vegetables and gravy were great. Corn on the cob was as good as from home. Wife enjoyed her pot pie she said it was tasty. Apples are great and toll...More

The Iowa Machine Shed is so much like good ol' farm cooking. The food is abundant and tastes wonderful. We've never eaten anything there that we didn't love. The menu is amazing. It is similar inside to a Cracker Barrel restaurant but it's better. Go...More

Great homemade food after 10 hours on the car. If you like Cracker Barrel you'll love this restaurant.

I was really excited to visit this restaurant while in the area. It had been recommended by a friend. We were disappointed. It is like Cracker Barrel but not as good. We wouldn't go out of our way to go back to it. We'd never...More

This was near our motel and we’d read good things, so we decided to give it a try. It’s “dedicated to the American farmer” and there’s farm stuff outside and in. That includes a tractor (where kids were having picture taken) and seed caps and...More

Machine Shed is one of the places we like to take out of town visitors. The "farm" emphasis hits home with home style food, with side dishes served family style.

They have really good home made food here. You won't be disappointed in the serving sizes either. The atmosphere is very country with lots of manufacturing signs, pitchforks, shovels and the wait staff wearing overalls. There is plenty of space between tables so it's almost...More

If you are in the quad cities area, you must stop in. This was my third time. Always great, fresh food. Had the heartland combo. My favorite was the Parmesan Crusted Pork Loin. All good. Sides great. Enjoy!
