We came to Redamaks as a suggestion from a friend. There is a lot of hype about the food. It's good, but a lot of the excitement is nostalgia. Our server was great and we were able to seat our large party, including 4 kids,...More

This is a fun place to eat- great hamburgers- their speciality! We try and stop here on our trips to Michigan. Always have to remember - cash only! Definitely a good place to eat!

My family and I ate at Redamak's Tavern on our recent family vacation. The food was good and the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. But the service was very slow. That's why I did not rate it a 5. I would...More

Got a burger on a pretzel bun, a buffalo burger and pbj for our son. Good food after a day at the beach. Really really busy. Feels like organized chaos. Very family friendly.

Stopped for lunch. Clam chowder was marginal. My husband's Bleu cheese burger was terrible. My Velveeta cheeseburger was delicious. Fries were great. Loved our server.

A must when visiting the New Buffalo area! Always busy so be prepared for a wait, but it goes fast .

The service is great there every time, but the hype is a bit much. The burgers are okay. The mass frozen foods, deep fried, are overrated. The reason everything is overrated has to do with the expensive price for a burger that isn't very good....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.
