We are looking for a venue in Milwaukee (or surrounding suburbs) that seat 400+ guests for dinner. We are trying to stay away from hotel banquet halls and golf courses. Our ideal venue would have a "wood" lodge feel. We have also been searching other locations that you can rent for large parties, ex. Universities, boyscout resorts, etc. With no luck.
Can anyone provide any suggestions as to venues they have checked out, weddings (of this size) they have been to, or random locations we could inquire about rentals?
