Awesome food served family style. Usually a slight wait to get in but it's worth it. Little shop when you first come in with cute stuff. I'd highly recommend it, be hungry.

I thought the breakfast was the best thing The Shed serves and let me tell you it is awesome. Well this evening we ate dinner at The Shed. All you can eat ribs were AWESOME - for that matter the whole dinner and experience was awesome.

I went here while in Davenport on business. This is not what I'd call a fine dining establishment, but the people were extremely nice, service was excellent and food was pretty good. People seemed to really like the burnt ends, but I'm from NC BBQ country, and I wasn't impressed. I also had a huge dinner salad that was actually... More

This down home style restaurant is popular for its bib overall wait staff and countey style good food. Lunch starts exactly at 11:00 so don't try for breakfast after that or much before... More

I went to the machine shed after reading the good reviews. There was no wait for me to be seated- always a plus. I began with the BBQ stuffed potato skins and wow, I was impressed. I also ordered the country fried chicken with garlic mashed potatoes, and apple chunks. The other two options are cottage cheese and cole slaw.... More

We met some family there for a gathering. They have round tables for larger groups (we had 6) plus a high chair. The food was good, service was good they even helped us get set up to take some group photos. Lots of people with kids there on a Friday night, good to see.

We decided to stop in here for a dinner after shopping. The front of the restaurant has farm equipment in front - it was so neat!. Once inside there was a general store, bakery and farm food. We had a great meal and topped it off with an apple dumpling. We will definitely go back and try the many different... More

I have been to the Rockford IL Machine Shed restaurant many times but never to this one in Davenport. I chose a moderate size breakfast with only one egg and a small steak with English muffin and their own strawberry preserves. Most of the meal choices are much larger and will need a to-go box unless you are very hungry.... More
