Awesome customer service

We met up with my husbands old childhood friend And his wife for an impromptu visit and dinner. You know a place is awesome when its jam packed early on a Friday evening. We meet before 6! The place is charming, old wood furniture oozing with the welcoming comfort of home. The entire restaurant... read more

Some decent selections, however the Goulash is thin like soup, and spicy hot. Bad Breath Burger is a stand-by; everything has a bit of spicy heat to it. Service never seems to be satisfying, which is unfortunate. Bills come without itemization so you end up tipping on the tax. It's a hipster joint with pretty friendly bar staff but the... More

We were returning from a road trip on a Sunday evening and trying to decide where we good get a meal. Madison doesn't have too many choices for late night dining. We went to the Weary Traveler because they serve food quite late. I think they serve until 1:30 AM. Not only do they serve food late, but is also... More

Went there after reading few reviews(regret not reading a couple more at this point), food is ok but nothing exceptional. Service was very good but food took longer than it should to arrive (over 30 min). The only exceptional thing was their locally made Kombucha drink, a bit pricy considering they put more amount of ice than the drink itself... More

The Stinky Breath Burger..... So damn good! It is one of my favorite low key chill best food restaurants ever! Who would have thunk in Madison, WI. The unique menu is awesome and very tasty.

What a perfectly lovely madison restaurant. Went here with my brother and we were given a cozy table. It's a bit crowded, but it adds to the vibe of a local, place alive with activity, good friends, and better food. The food was delicious. The Old Fashion mixed better than you can get at The Old Fashion down town (seriously).... More

Good food but limited menu. Variety. Bob's Bad Breath burger is worth eating a burger for. Try anything, it's pretty good.

The pork loin sandwich was great. The pork was perfectly seasoned and tasted great. It came with a small spring salad and potatoes that were somewhere between chips and home fries. Whatever they were, they were delicious.

The tuna steak sandwich may have been the best I've had. It was served with a nice side of greens. My wife had the bad breath burger - flavors were amazing, but unfortunately she orders her meat well done. Medium and the burger would have been stellar. The coconut lemongrass stew sounded great as well. Nice craft beer and wine... More

My first visit to the Weary was an impromptu fulfillment of a long standing plan to go play scrabble. It is located on the corner of Williamson and Few, and contains boardgames and books. It serves a good variety of drinks, and some excellent black tea made with full leaves. We visited late in the evening, and stayed a bit... More
