The Machine Shed Restaurant

The restaurant that started it all is the Iowa Machine Shed. Today, nationally recognized as one of the best, the Machine Shed features entrees served family style with bottomless fixin’s which are passed around the table. The menu consists of fresh farm style breakfasts, lunches and dinners, featuring homemade soups and daily specials. The Machine Shed also has a full-service bar and gift shop filled with private label coffees, jams, syrups and jellies along side gifts for the kitchen.

Many consider the Machine Shed to be a Midwestern institution. From its humble beginnings, the Machine Shed has become an outstanding restaurant by any definition. To learn more, visit
