A landmark restaurant

If you are in the area you should stop by for a burger and fries. This place has been around for ever and there's good reason why. The burgers are great.

Must have missed the closure notice on our phone but they are closed till March for the season. However 2 other people with us also missed the closure notice. But thank you for being closed because we never would have found the Stray Dog !

Redamaks is a family style restaurant with friendly help and good food . The burgers are their specialty and are made from fresh ground beef with about any topping you desire. The basket meals are tasty and reasonably priced. There is plenty of seating and not much waiting. They are closed in late fall and reopened in the spring. The... More

Just had dinner there for a quick weekend getaway. Do not order chicken wrap or walleye dinner. Small, single piece of fish with fries that were ok, and Cole slaw that tasted like it was time for closing for season. Soooo disappointed!

The people are friendly and the burgers are great! Two of our group had the pork tender loin sandwich and hatted them. The fries are also good. We would go back.

The theme here is: legendary food, good times; come get some. On an overnighter to check out the last of the fall colors, we found a nice little motel in New Buffalo. Down the road is Redamak's, the place where legends were made. Their famous Velveeta burger is one of the best burgers I've eaten. Get a side of tater... More

We have been coming here for years and find it to be one of the best hamburgers we've had. They are only open from March till the second week of November. During the summer the line can be out the door, but the fast service keeps the line moving. You do have to pay cash for your order. They don't... More

A friend recommanded eating at Redamak's while staying in New Buffalo. Very neat place to eat. Clean, decorated, good service, and great food. Had the wings and Teresa had a Taco salad. If we come back to town, we will stop there again.

Thin burgers not special. Always surprised at the crowds here, food is not that good. The experience is food in baskets, so quaint. Packed and lines during season but not sure why other than the old time feel.
