Their burgers are to die for! Their chopped salad is good for two meals! There is an incredible good beer selection. Their fries, and omg, their onion rings are something from heaven! I don't believe I've ever visited there without a lot of people eating and/or watching the games on television. The places gets packed for a reason, folks.

We had one of the burgers with fries and onion rings. You cannot get any better. Service is good and they have a great beer and wine list.

I had not been to Red Coat in about two years because of hit or miss food experiences. The visit was during the lunch time and seating was readily available. Service was fair and two two out of three orders were brought to the table wrong. I really wanted to try their burger again (this burger always seemed to be... More

We enjoy a good beer selection and we always have excellent hamburgers. It seems to be less busy during the week at the dinner hour so service was prompt and the food was good as always. My only complaint would be that one or more of the beer taps always seems to be out whenever I come in

For those of you who have eaten on Mackinac Island and like the dark wood and red lighting, this is your chance to experience it in Detroit. Food and drink are fabulous, but a little pricey. Be ready to drop $20 for a burger, fries and a drink.

Always had a good meal. I thought some of their booths makes you feel like you sit too low like in a kiddie seat.

We brought my parents to Redcoat for their first time. They loved it! My step Mom and I ordered the prime rib, which is my favorite dish, and as usual it was superb. My son and father got the fish and chips to which they both said it was delicious. And my wife got a salad that was as equally... More

Family said this was the place and they were right. Tried the Brasserie burger which was phenomenal. Toppings did not overpower the excellent beef. 10:30 at night and the place was rockin. Server Joseph was excellent and kept our drinks and requests for extra stuff very efficiently. Highly recommend!!

Each time we visit Red Coat Tavern, I ask the server if this is going to be my lucky day, and that they are offering a gluten-free bun for that fantastic burger. Mina, our server today, said "unfortunately no". If they could offer the good tasting gluten-free bun, it would be a grand slam out of the park. Today we... More

This was a visit to a restaurant I have eaten at many time. I was with a family member and we each had a great burger and also shared onion rings. Food was promptly served and delicious.
