I could not be more happy with The Milwaukee Athletic Club, and the staff that works there (specifically Chelsey)! They are amazingly flexible, willing to accommodate, and for a ceremony space unbelievably fairly priced! I have full confidence in knowing my ceremony will go off without a hitch on their part.

Some parts of working with the MAC were great! Food was amazing, ballroom gorgeous, and bridal suite spacious. The location is awesome. Sarah was good to work with. But some of the staff were rude and unprofessional. The ballroom was very hot for part of the evening. Seemed like only bathrooms had AC? The front desk man was so rude. All and all I had a beautiful wedding. But the MAC staff needs some improvement.

What an amazing experience I had working with the MAC! While planning our MKE wedding from ATL, I found Corinne to be so communicative and responsive and helpful with any and all questions I had. We had our full event there, ceremony, cocktails and reception. The compliments I received from our guests were immediate and are still coming. The food was WONDERFUL (something so important and in my opinion, quite difficult to accomplish for large groups), and the value was indescribable. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this venue. The food, ambiance, the treatment our guests received upon arrival... and the extras they were willing to help us with were truly top-notch. A huge thank you to Corinne, the day-of coordinators and the staff of the MAC for making our event completely unforgettable.

Although I am the Mother of the Bride, I speak for my entire family, including the bride and groom, when I say that we simply could not have been happier with virtually everything at the Milwaukee Athletic Club. From the initial planning meeting to the post-wedding-out-of-towners breakfast, we were thrilled with the venue; the food; the staff; and everyone we worked with at the MAC. We had the wedding, cocktail hour, and reception at the MAC and it was so easy for us, and for our guests, to simply go from one gorgeous room to the next. It is a beautiful venue with stunning features that are hard to find elsewhere. The photographs are breath-taking.

Overall I was very impressed with the Milwaukee Athletic Club. The food was excellent and they were willing to accommodate for extra things that we wanted. The venue is great! And the catering manager Corinne was always willing to help.

I would highly recommend that you make sure your banquet event order is completely written out exactly the way you want it because more than likely the catering manager will not be there the day of your event so the two people that only have the banquet event order to go off of to make sure your day goes exactly how you want it.

Also you should make sure there are no events going on in at the Milwaukee Athletic Club. Ask at the front desk and your catering manager as there is NO communication between the two. It was very annoying when I had my wedding there, the catering manager assured me the ballroom doors would stay closed all day so my guests, esp those staying at the MAC would not be able to see the ballroom before dinner. That was not the case, there were tour Milwaukee tours going on all day and the doors were open all day! Hundreds of people came into the ballroom and were able to walk all over even though my things were in there as we were preparing for the wedding on that night. It was extremely intrusive as I had to meet a food and beverage minimum for the room and the catering manager assured me no one would be in there but that was not the case. Huge lack of communication at the MAC!! She insisted it was not her fault even though she should be making sure no events are going on before booking weddings!

The venue is beautiful, one of the most beautiful ballrooms in Milwaukee. The staff is great during the planning process, and gets back to you immediately. However, things weren't communicated from the catering director to the staff working the day of the event.

The food was delicious, but very pricey. Each steak was perfectly cooked, the chicken was juicy and not dry. The rolls were fresh and not hard. Everyone loved the food!

I would have liked more bar tenders during the cocktail hour, my guests had to wait in line for a drink. I would increase the number of servers during cocktail hour, as the hors' d'oveours didn't make it past the corner they came out of.

I love the included valet parking for my guests and the use of their bus so I did not have to rent a limo the day of my event.

I would improve communication between the catering director and staff running the event.

Overall, I would recommend this venue, but it is expensive. I would be VERY particular in communication of the order of the event, and ask to speak with the person in charge on the day of your event to ensure everything runs as it should. Ask how many bar tenders and ask that each of them stay for the duration of cocktail hour, most of them disappeared half way through.

The Milwaukee Athletic Club is beautiful and while they have a very easy system for their food ordering, the flow of things was a little choppy. There was little communication between the departments and that left a few questions. The food was mostly delicious, but a little overpriced. The staff was very attentive in each department though! In general there was much flexibility.
