Crowded, noisy but good American food

This was one of those places that I was told I "had to visit" if I went to New Buffalo. On the positive side, the hamburgers they make are genuine ground beef, and look like hamburgers you would make at home rather than prefabricated patties from the restaurant supply house. Larger than sliders and... read more

We have been going to Redamak's several times a year for many years on our drive from Chicago to St. Joe, Michigan. We love what Redamak's represents--a big, family-friendly summer institution in Southwest Michigan. It has been in New Buffalo since the 1940's, and the decor and atmosphere take you back to a simpler time. We usually get the burgers... More

Every server I have ever had has always been super friendly. Great atmosphere! It is more than just burgers, but if you are going there, why get anything else ?!! Bring cash because that is all they take (ATM inside though).

I have been going here for a years and I know service is slow when crowded you wait forever, but the servers need to be better at taking correct orders and the cooks to check the food that they are plated. My daughters burger was raw and had 3 inch piece of un melted cheese just thrown on her burger... More

This place is great ~ a must stop if you are in the area. Burger and wraps are the best. I have eaten here more than once and never been sorry.

Nothing much to say but just that, good burgers. The best in south west lower Michigan. May have to wait in line, but well worth it.

We have passed the road sign for this restaurant for over twenty years and this summer decided to check it out. The place is huge including the parking lot. I was worried about the wait but we were seated in about five minutes. Nice rustic decor and more family oriented then a tavern. The servers were friendly and fast considering... More

This cash only restaurant has a huge following. However, why is the question. If you don't mind waiting a long time for a table. Served mediocre food wrapped in paper. Then this is the place for you. If you love great tasting hamburgers, go elsewhere.

Redamak's has amazing burgers. Although I usually get the chicken strips because their sauce is really good. Their shacks are really good too.
