Dinner at Wegner's St Martins Inn Franklin WI Friday September 22 at 5PM

We're now 4 weeks away and I spoke with some folks off line who expressed an interest in joining us
We will be spending all day in Milwaukee with the exception of an afternoon drive to Port Washington  and plan to do lunch as well at either Milwaukee Brat House or the Old German Beer Hall with as well as checking out Usinger's and The Cheese shop nearby as well as the Uber Tap Room next door for fresh fried cheese curds. We plan to head to Kopp's for frozen custard after dinner.
 
Updated to include those who are attending:
 
Ann Peeples
X1
Pie Diva 
Screaming Brad
Quijote and John
Sandra and Your's Truly
 
 
Due to the potential long lines I would suggest an early dinner.

Just a reminder for those who would like to join us after dinner.
 
After dinner we'll be heading to Kopps Frozen Custard.  X1 had suggested we go to the Greenfield location since it's the closest to Wegner's.

The Kopps special flavors for the 22nd will be Butter Brickle and Red Raspberry.
 
Will you be in Milwaukee on Sunday the 24th? One of the Kopps flavors will be Bienenstichkuchen--one of their very best and worth getting, if you can.

In Pepin, WI, I would like to strongly recommend the Harbor View Cafe.
Incredible food, and some of the best pie I have ever had. 
In fact, order your pie first, so they don't run out!

Harbor View Café is already on our list in fact we'll be going on Sunday September 24. I have contacted them via facebook to see if they can coincide our visit with their Frikadellar special.

Will Wegner's seat a partial table (if 2 people who shall remain nameless happened to arrive 90 minutes early, for example) or does everyone have to be there?  Although I'd be willing to bet a table for 7 would be the same as a table for 8.

IIRC, they want the entire party to be present at the time of seating. OTOH, if "someone" was to get there 90 minutes early (what is it with you Cheeseheads  and your radical punctuality?), they're happy to keep you occupied at the bar until the rest of the group arrives.
 
Have a Brandy Old Fashioned (sweet, of course) with olives for me!

Due to the potential long lines I would suggest an early dinner.

Based on tonight I think to avoid any kind of a wait you have to be lined up outside the door 30 minutes before it opens.
 
Wegner's did a good job of accommodating the 9 of us and I enjoyed my Friday night sampler platter (shrimp, scallops, perch, haddock 2 ways) and potato pancakes.  The regular company was excellent as usual, and it was good to see Dale again and very nice to meet Sandra.  Have fun on your trip!
 
Tonight's inside joke: "So remember, when you visit Wegner's St. Martins Inn bring your appetite and your Visa card.  Because while Wegner's will take your hunger away, they won't take American Express."

This thread is getting pretty stale, so:
 
BUMP.
 
Anyway, wanderingjew really missed a good place while in Milwaukee. Grate Modern Mac & Cheese is really awesome.
 
All the cheese is grated in front of you as you order.

The orders are prepared individually then baked in a pizza oven.

This is their Green Chile M&C: Pepper Jack; Mozzarella; & Spicy Green Chile Sauce. It was excellent.  

Grate's menu is mostly limited to M&C, but they also serve salads, so people such as ChiBears1-3 can enjoy the restaurant, too.
