ScreamingChicken
Kelley's is the only real issue as they don't open until 11.  If we want to make it a definite stop we could start at Widmer's closer to 10 and then go to Eden Meats, which would probably take up enough time to put us at Kelley's when the doors are unlocked.
 
Since the afternoon's wide open there's probably enough of a cushion to move everything back 30 minutes or so, but I'm thinking we don't want to have Schreiner's and Wendt's too close together as they're the main dining options for the day.  Plus those who're heading back home at the end of the day probably don't want dinner to get too late.
 
However, Kelley's is open until 8pm if it fits better as a final, post-Wendt's stop.


What if we had breakfast at Schreiner's at 9 am, then off to Widmers, Eden Meat, Kelley, and Tuckers, etc. ending at Wendts? That would give us a break between 3 meals or is Schreiner's strictly a pie stop?

I don't know Mike, I've been eyeballing the Texas Breakfast Sub at Eden.

I like ScreamingChicken's itinerary, but we could leave off the ice cream at Kelley's until after dinner. This leaves more room for lunch and some of us can buy pints to take home.

Hotel booked.
 
Next issue: Let's nail down Friday night dinner.  Milwaukee or Fon du Lac?  We're in either way, although I'm inclined to pick Fon du Lac, just for variety's sake.  The Cheeseheads call it and we'll be there.

Maybe we can split the difference and eat somewhere in West Bend.

If you can find any place in West Bend please let me know. So far I've never found any place  worth dining at in that burg. Don't ever consider the Port Hotel.
 
Buddy, the place is huge but I've never had a bad dish at Salty's in Fond du Lac. http://www.saltysseafoodandspirits.com/index.html
 
Our Friday plan is to catch some live music at the R & D Pub in Milwaukee which starts at 5:30. We will be getting a bite to  eat there that won't be a fish fry.

We didn't find anything exceptional in WB. So we'll meet Jeff & Suzy anywhere they'd like to eat.

Salty's looks fine.  Do you know of any place in FdL with a superior Fish Fry?  If not, Salty's is the pick.  Name the time and make a reservation if need be.  Not sure if abe and Mr. Maki will join us.  I'll try to get an answer.

I don't know where it is now, but when this topic first came up, I made a lengthy post about the area, which included Bryanna's.  You shouldn't miss it.
 
If you're looking for a fish fry, I also mentioned this place, I think in this post:

Salty's or Northwinds (mentioned above) look good.  Decisions?  We'll leave sometime Friday afternoon.  Would like to nail it down before we head out.

Based on abe's post above, just to give us all enough pad time, shall we say Northwind at 7:00pm, or is that too late?  According the website, they close at 9:00.

Jeff,
 
I don't think we are going to make it up to Northwind tonight. With having to turn around and head back up to FDL first thing on Saturday morning, the logistics don't work for us.
 
Have fun with the kids,
 
Jim

I can confirm that the food at Pho Hai Tuyet is at least as good as it always was. However their staffing is much smaller and I'd never seen the two people that were working there Monday night when we dined there. It also has a sign that calls itself Pho Hai Tuyet II which was the name for their now shuttered Mequon location. Strange. The Banh Mi was still the bomb as were the fresh spring rolls and pho.  Someone I swim with went around lunch time Tuesday or Wednesday and found no one inside. She yelled out a few hellos  before leaving. Strange. She had better luck the next day at lunch. There were no problems the night I dined there.
