Lunch In Milwaukee, Dinner In Sheboygan Area

On Friday, the husband and I will be driving north from the Chicago area into Wisconsin to spend the weekend at the American Club. We already have our reservations for Saturday night in the Immigrant Room. However, on our drive up, we wanted to stop in Milwaukee for lunch, then continue north to Kohler, check in and vist Sheboygan for dinner Friday night. I'd love to get some ideas for both lunch and dinner places in our respective destinations. Since we're doing something upscale Saturday, we'd prefer to keep it low key Friday night.

        Living, We've had dinner at Coquette and thought it was wonderful. Anything else in the Third Ward?

          You could try The Milwaukee Public Market St. Paul Fish Market offers oyster bar seating. You could get a glass of wine from The Thief Wine Shop and sit there, or have lunch at Margarita Paradise at the market.

          The Palms serves up a good lunch.

          Or you could go to Motor at the Harley Davidson Museum.

      2. It's probably cliche but a quick and memorable burger meal can be had at Kopp's Frozen Custard Stand. It's in Glendale (just north of Milwaukee) one block off of I-43. It's a 50's-style burger joint with great custard and shakes. I'm sure that it's been talked about thoroughly on these boards.

        5373 N Port Washington Rd, Milwaukee, WI 53217

        1. Il Ritrovo in Sheboygan is a must for dinner.
          Their Neopolitan style pizza and smoked trout mousse are both very good.
