In 1978, The Machine Shed opened its first restaurant on the outskirts of Davenport, IA. It had just 100 seats and the owners were all pretty young and green. But The Machine Shed started with a powerful commitment. That was a five-word constitution: "Dedicated to the American Farmer". That dedication means the owners work hard to have a restaurant that isn't just "farm themed" but something that farmers can be proud of. The Machine Shed uses only the best beef, pork and poultry. It cooks from scratch using fresh ingredients and the staff still peel the potatoes themselves.
Through the years, The Machine Shed Restaurants have sprung up around the Midwest and earned a bushel full of awards. It’s been honored by the National Pork Producers Council, Beef Industry Council, National Dairy Association, and countless others. In every city it’s located, you'll find The Machine Shed on the "Best of" lists compiled by local media.
Thanks to you, Heart of America Restaurants and Inns have grown to include six states and 26 restaurants and hotels. As the restaurants have grown, so has The Machine Shed’s pride in serving only the best in Midwestern hospitality. Visit www.machineshed.com to find a location near you and come taste the difference.
