I need a place to meet my parents, who will be driving down from the Minneapolis area and want to meet us "no farther south than Madison," stay at a motel and take us out to celebrate my bday (30. Yeah, that's right... "30"). We'd like to drive no further north than Tomah, preferably more south. They want to splurge on a nice restaurant, but I don't want to stick them with something as pricey as L'Etoile in Madison. The thing is, I don't know anything upscale along I-90/94 between Madison and Tomah. Lots of great fish fry's and burger joints, but nothing more upscale. Any advice? We want to avoid the Dells. My favorite little mom and pop motel in Baraboo is booked (and no restaurant there that I know of). Hmmm. Maybe further east? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I should add that Dad is 80+ and has some trouble walking, so anything that requires a trek to get to won't work for us.Edited: 28 June 2012, 20:15
