Redamak's is well known as "the place" to go in New Buffalo for a burger. I think they have ridden that reputation to the ground. The service was SO bad - they act like they're doing you a favor serving you a mediocre burger. And the burgers were just that - completely mediocre - so thin you have to order... More

Very busy place. But they are used to dealing with crowds. The fried pickle chips are yummy. Burgers are great, can't go wrong. Juicy and perfectly sized. Great buns. The velveeta burger is tasty, but I think they are good. Good selection of beer, wine and some fun cocktails. Can't beat the prices. Lake perch basket for $9.50, I will... More

Stopped in traveling from Detroit to Illinois. Arrived 10 minutes before opening and over 60 people were waiting to get in. They opened at noon, we were seated immediately, order was taken, salad was quickly delivered followed shortly by our burgers. Excellent food, super service and fair prices. 35 minutes after entering we were back on the road. What more... More

I stopped here for lunch the other day after hearing great things about this place from locals. The place was packed at lunch time, but the service was still quick; it took only about ten minutes to recieve my food despite there being a wait to get a table. I got a double burger with fries for only $6. Everything... More

Every time we go to New Buffalo, Michigan, the kids want to stop at Redamak's. Seems like we always order the same thing....the hamburgers. No one wants to try anything else because they are so good. But bring cash because they don't take credit/debit cards or checks. Don't worry if your kids are noisey because the place is so loud... More

I was out with an old buddy and his wife. Sure is great when in a new town with people familiar with the area. This place was great. Simple, good food (burgers) with nice portions at a reasonable price. Had lunch there and everyone at our table was very satisfied. It gets crowded but a good family place to enjoy... More

We passed this place repeatedly during our three days in the area and it was perpetually packed. We we're surprise to see it less than busy on the evening of July 4 and at 9:30 pulled in for a late dinner. We were seated quickly and served promptly and we really enjoyed the food. The original hamburger was wrapped in... More

Dining at Redamak's Tavern is casual. The service is outstanding. The peppercorn cheese hamburger with the onion rings was the best ever! The restaurant is easy to find. It is always packed because the food is delicious. Plan to come early, especially if you have little ones! Young and old love this restaurant. The prices are reasonable. One experience here... More

Very good food and lots of it esp for kids. Kids portions were more like "teen" portions, according to my 10-yr old. Burgers weren't especially large but tasted excellent. The place was hopping and filled up fast but staff seemed up to the task. Great for lunch. Cash only is a drawback.

This place is a tradition that you go back for each and every year. But, be ready to wait for the pleasure...lines are usually long and it is crowded. Once you get in and are seated...the food is incredible with basic fare that is made into something memorable. The kids loved the burgers and fries with drippy cheese on all.... More
