It's not often I give 5 stars, but Redcoat Tavern has earned them in my mind. On a recent trip to the Detroit area, I made two visits for dinner and drinks. Loved the first trip so much, had to go back again while still...More

You won't be disappointed. One of the best burger places in metro Detroit. It's worth the wait to get in. The fish and chips are great, too.

Totally impressed by Red Coat, especially the burgers that were out of this world! I’ve literally never had such an amazing burger. I ordered the premium beef and it was worth the small up-charge. Delicious beef. Tons of flavor. High quality toppings that perfectly complimented...More

Went here on a Wednesday evening after seeing TripAdvisor reviews and getting local recommendations. It was about a 30 minute wait for 2 at 6:30pm. They do not take reservations but will put you on the waitlist via telephone. It was very crowded and loud...More

The food and service are Great as Usual for 40 plus years. Worth the 30 mike drive. Arrived at 11:00 AM to beat the crowds, which is a perfect time to go. Food was quick service was fantastic.

If you like burgers, this is the place. Although other menu items are also done well, the restaurant is best known for their burgers. Dine-in or carry out, you can’t miss. Servers are friendly, efficient, while working hard within a cramped space.

The tavern is a looonngg time area favorite for burgers and other sandwiches. Can't be beat. It can be really busy any evening ( it is open all day), but it's worth the wait. Great food and great staff!

Was here with a group of five friends. Service was slow, but the Caesar Salad and burgers were the best!

They don't take reservations, but they do a call ahead seating and all members need to be present when you arrive. There will still be a wait, but not as bad. I would suggest you call at least a hour in advance if you have... More
