Looking for opinions on a solid, business class router. Would need to support between 100 and 150 users and have fast upload and download speeds. Wired is preferred, but a goof wireless model would also work.

At the minimum, you need 4 additional routers (not in AP mode). All switches and router ports need to be GB capable. CAT6 not required if you have CAT5e and runs shorter than 100M between each switch / port. More than likely, the ISP supplied router also needs to be replaced with a current model.
Each router can support about 30 to 50 clients (at some level). I'm assuming your users don't roam in this building. If you can give passwords to restrict each area to a max number of users, this may work.
No consumer router can handle 150 simultaneous users. At least not reliably (as you have seen) and not at anything resembling real time speeds.
You can get complete comparison among different router from here: https://www.homesecuritylist.com/best-wireless-routers/
