Hamburgers, onion rings, fries, a great family place. My grandson could make all the noise he wanted to make without disturbing anyone and still you could hear.

Burger was cooked nicely but really bland and an absolute mess. Hot dog buns were chewy and the super cheese dog was a kraft single on a cold hot dog. Fries came straight from the freezer with no salt. Cesar salad was just bad. No substitutions. No coffee. Wait staff was nice but would not recommend. We paid $11 for... More

Was here many years ago, came back this weekend. Burgers are great. Meat is fantastic. My wife had the velvetta on hers, I went with mild cheddar. I think the doubles are too big, but a single is too small( each patty is 5.5 oz. before cooked). I didn't think there was enough cheese on mine. Redamak's will not worry... More

Having lived in Southwest Michigan for years I had, of course, heard of Redamak's. So, I finally visited there and had the "legendary" cheeseburger just the way they normally prepare it. What a disappointment! The burger wasn't assembled well, meat way off center, pickle slices atop each other rather than distributed and catsup/mustard concentrated in one blob. Worst was an... More

I have been going to Redamak's for over 30 years. I was lucky when they opened a 2nd location in Chicago, but sad when they closed it. Now that I travel to South Haven a 1/2 dozen times a year I always stop here to have an Olive Burger. Just the best!

The food at a fast food joint is better than here. I think people go for the atmosphere, it's extremely family friendly and fairly cheap. There's not a ton of places in the area and there is a lot of nostalgia to the place so I get it, but if you are adults going for the food I would go... More

On a recent vacation with my children and grandchildren, we returned to the iconic Redamak's. While it's clearly a throwback, the classic burger is a real treat and a must stop. The burger was juicy, cheese yummy melty and the bun soft and swishy , all in the best way! For those was feel the need to steer away there... More

We stopped here on Labor Day, and it was very busy, but we were served quickly. They are known for their burgers, and they were very good. Tried the breaded green beans and chili, and both were delicious. You won't leave here hungry or disappointed!

This is another place that return travelers think of fondly. It is very kid-friendly with a menu focused on burgers and dogs and related appetizers, frys, onion rings and such.

A tradition for generations, this is the sort of place that you've heard about forever. I so wanted to believe. And, perhaps along with Betsy Ross, the stories don't reconcile with the facts. The place is clean and, since the patio was built, can actually be accessed by mere mortals. No reservations and the wait easily approaches an hour on... More
