The first two visits here were excellent! Great burger, nice beer selection, bustling vibe. So took my family here on a quiet afternoon and couldn't believe it was the same restaurant. The four of us each had different meals and the various breads/rolls our sandwiches were on were all dried out and stale. The meat on the reuben sandwich was... More

Not an extensive menu but plenty to choose from. One person was a vegan and got the chili, said it was good. One had the Reuben and said it had pastrami rather than corned beef and thought it was too spicy for him, 3 had the salads, 1 with flank steak, 1 with tenderloin, both happy but the one who... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants on the East side of Madison. These guys never disappoint. Try the Bob's bad breath burger or many of the vegetarian options. The sampler plate is excellent

Went on a recommendation! Lucky to find parking, that done we were met by a great table cleaner and had the best and funniest of servers. Question; "When you cook my hamburger medium, what's it like?' Answer: "Medium!" The table totally cracked up and it was only after one drink. The food was all spicy from hot to just tingley....

This restaurant/bar is my favorite on Willy Street. The atmosphere is great for anything from casual drinks, to a dinner date, to a business lunch. The West of Andes sandwich with tuna steak is a must-have lunch item (tuna, avocado, and chipotle mayo!). The walleye sandwich and quinoa salad are also great. Pull up to a rustic table in the...

Weary is a good for many occasions - - brunch, late night, drinks, or just to play boardgames in a cozy dimly lit room. They have items from various cuisines: American style burgers/sandwiches, Mediterranean plate, Hungarian goulash and so on... Interesting choices all around. I ended up going with the grilled walleye sandwich and my companion ordered the grilled cheese... More

Our friends who live in Madison took us here for dinner and we really liked it. The vibe of the place is great, very relaxed and you feel comfortable straight away. Food was delicious and reasonably priced, I had the tuna steak sandwich and my wife had a salad and both were very good. Also, good selection of drinks (Kombucha-Vodka!)... More

Had fried eggs, potatoes, sour doe toast for myself, my wife and my brother and his wife. Eggs were well done so much that there were hardly any yoke. The fried potatoes were good but a very small portion. The best part was the toast.
