New to the area. Heard of this place as a LEGEND which marks the beginning of summer days ahead when it opens in the spring. Been a few times AND I can see the hype over the consistent service,food and atmosphere, Burgers are fresh as the pickles,onions and lettuce are crisp and crunchy when you take that first bite.The melted...

For more than 40 years it's been the Velveeta Burger. I tried the Bison Burger and I wished I'd stuck to the old standby. The interior is throwback to the 70's and very cool. The food is basic burgers and fries. They do have other things too but as I said, it's best to stick to the basics. They have... More

This food is fresh and good. It is a bit pricey for what it is. The burgers are very filling and the shakes are good. It gets really busy as the warmer months set in and it's only open part of the year. Good place for family or a laid back date evening.

Seems you can't make a trip through New Buffalo Michigan without stopping at Redamaks. They keep expanding the menu, so if you aren't in the mood for a burger, there's plenty of other choices. Cash only, so don't think you can use your credit card. I can guarantee that you will need plenty, but there is a on site money... More

Every time we go here, Redamak's lives up to their claim of serving the Legend. Burgers are excellent and the service is the same. They definitely have the system down pat! Very busy during the summer, but great during the spring and fall.

Nothing like a velveeta cheeseburger and fries after a long day at the beach. I love the atmosphere, food and the customers from all over that come for the cheeseburgers. Don't let the long line outside fool you. It is worth the wait!

Sandwiches that included fries and slaw for $7.95 in 2016 now cost $7.95 ala carte. $3 for fries, no slaw. Smaller craft beer glasses in 2017

Maybe years ago the burgers were best, but my visit they dry and not very tasty. The fries and onion rings were okay and the shake was out of a machine. Maybe was there on an off day, sorry had a lot better elsewhere.

We had heard of Redamak's fame for its hand made burgers, so we braved a very rainy day and visited the place with all the family. Luckily there was parking on either side of the building. Being a weekend it was full and very noisy. We started off with ordering the local Michigan beers with fried cauliflower and jalapeño cheddar... More
