The signs everywhere say, "bite into a legend". The burger was obviously cooked ahead of time then kept in a steamer or something. It was WELL done and dry. I should have known when they didn't ask how I wanted it cooked. Everyone's beer came...More

I've heard people rave about this place, but after trying it, don't think it's anything special... I've grilled better burgers

We don't go to Redamak's for the hamburgers as most people do, we go for the Fish and Chips! It is lake perch and homemade potato chips, and it is wonderful. Just so you know, they only take cash, no credit or debit. Give them...More

Early afternoon is usually a good time. They have a business mans special during the week so you can save a little bit. Great place and worth any wait.
