What to do in Milwaukee—Mother’s Day Weekend


By Denise Welnak
Mom. There’s no lady quite like her; the one who brought you into this world. She knows just how to make you feel better when you’re sick or feeling down, she can instantly invoke fear by shouting your full name—middle and all!—at the top of her lungs, and she makes the best darn chicken soup on this planet.

You owe her, on so many levels. So a special day of fun and entertainment is definitely in order. We’ve got a few ideas that might just make Mom’s Day this year!

Mother's Day Buffet

The Mother of all Meals at The Buffet

Make it a gourmet brunch, make it homestyle dinner. However you slice it, we’ve got just the dish for the one-of-a-kind woman in your life. Spoil her with mouth-watering morning selections like waffles, eggs benedict, corned beef hash and more; or pamper mom all day with carved prime rib, bone-in ham, pot roast, oysters, peel & eat shrimp, made-to-order omelets and plenty of other offerings.


Hours: 9:30 a.m.–7 p.m.
Cost: $26 with Fire Keeper’s Club card; $28 without card.
