Speaking of the Dells, Del-Bar.  I've only eaten there once and it was over 20 years ago, but I still remember sitting there thinking I should've worn a fedora, ordered a martini, and smoked unfiltered cigarettes.
 
We ate at House of Embers once, too.  Way back when the kids were young, we'd ship them and the dogs off to my parents in the middle of winter and go spend the weekend in the Dells/Lake Delton.  I think Kalahari might've been the only year-round resort back then so the area was largely deserted, and therefore a lot more tolerable.

If we're going to the Dells, I'm eating at Paul Bunyon's Cook Shanty.  Not great food, but recalls childhood memories.

Paul Bunyan's is your breakfast destination after supper-clubbing the night before.

Noah's Ark before Jimmie's Del Bar or after Paul Bunyan's?

Not when you're six years old, which was when I was first introduced to PBCS.

You must be thinking of CBGB.   That's where we held my Bar Mitzvah reception.

I dont remember the name of the supper club in Spooner WI,  it would have been in 1980. I miss my grandparents cottage on Spooner.

Hob Nob on Saturday, October 17.

Are we shooting for 5pm?  If we have a larger group it'd be in our interest to get there early, although reservations are accepted (early works good for them, too).
 
Chicken, party of one.

A couple of years ago, Nina & I went to the Friday fish fry at the Hob Nob. It was the worst Friday Fish Fry in southeastern WI and way overpriced for frozen, machine breaded, fish. Better to spend a few extra bucks and go to Sebastian's for fish and/or steak.

Ann,
A hot dog at the ball park is better than a steak at the Hob Nob.

That's an unfair comparison, as a hot dog at the ballpark is better than nearly everything else, ever.

Mark's opinion is valuable to me. When we've had positive experiences or are relying on positive social media reviews it is worth trying something new. But when one of us has had an awful experience we should probably steer clear.

The restaurant's online menu didn't show prices. Is Hobnob priced really high? I hadn't thought about it, but if a supper club is drawing customers from Illinois they are likely charging a lot.

Perhaps we should look at doing something else next week.

Recent Yelp reviews aren't doing Hobnob any favors, either.  Mark mentioned Sebastian's but it doesn't look much like a supper club.
 
Perhaps we should tack the Wisconsin Supper Clubs website on the wall and throw a dart?

There's also ann's suggestion of The Corner House in Racine.  Any thoughts?

The Corner house is good. Prime rib and filets are wonderful.( I have had both)

Pretty good prices, too. But a reservation is a must.

The Jackson Grill, in Milwaukee, near Miller Park is considered one of Milwaukee's finest supper clubs. Small place, fantastic food! You wait at a small cozy bar to be seated, as Jimmy Jackson the owner/chef schmoozes with customers. Reservations are a must! Ask MLF about this place, because he turned us on to it. Nina and I had our first meal as a married couple at the Jackson Grill. It was the first time I ever had a kobe filet and it was UFB!  Should the Contingent decide on the Jackson Grill, we're in! www.thejacksongrill.com

I put out an invite on Facebook for the Hob Nob, came here to cross post and read the remarks so I pulled the post.
Fwiw, The Jackson Grille is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants but it is very, very small with strict seating and turnover rules. When you are done, it's off to the bar; no lingering. I think we should also consider The 5 O'clock Club, formerly Coerpers. It is more of a traditional supper club. In a down at its heels neighborhood, it offers a very secure guarded parking lot but I've always parked on the street and still tipped the guard. The Porterhouse here is what I want when I have to have a steak. There are several meals the next day with my leftovers. As in several other Wisconsin supper clubs, you sit at the bar (no pressure to order cocktails) and place your order there. When the bread is baked, you are called to your table. Old school in the best use of the term. There is jazz upstairs on Fridays at the very retro Ally Cat Lounge
http://www.fiveoclocksteakhouse.com/wi/
Joey Gerards is yet one more Milwaukee choice. The food is great and the service is the best locally I know of.

I'd be fine with a return to the Elias Inn Supper Club or to the nearby Donny's Girl Supper Club.

Wherever, I'm in as long as we go before it snows.
btw, someone who  ate at the Hob Nob described the prices as on the low end of upper, so that shouldn't have been an issue.

Hell, I 2nd the 5 O'clock club. Not cheap, but really, really good. And if that's our choice-let me put the reservation in my name. They know me..... And the elusive Bob would probably join us.

Okay guys, I've got Saturday the 17th set aside for a Supper Club.  You all decide where we need to show up and we'll be there.
 
Looking forward to seeing everyone!

I've been wanting to get Quijote #2 to a Wisconsin supper club, so we would be strongly interested in this, especially if it's Coerper's ( = 5 O'Clock Club) or something else like that in the Milwaukee area.
