The Machine Shed Opened in 1978
The Machine Shed opened it's first location in 1978 on the outskirts of Davenport, Iowa.
We had just 100 seats but we started with a powerful commitment.
Dedicated To The American Farmer
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 Have six locations

Over the years we have prided ourselves in presenting farm-to-table food that exceeds expectations, time and time again.
