There is not much on this menu to choose from but really big prices. The service is good. The restaurant is very loud.

Many of the menu items look delicious, but the Red Coat burger is the reason I return to this place time and again--first in Royal Oak and now in West Bloomfield, over more than 40 years. The burger is hearty and tasty, cooked just the way it's ordered and sporting lettuce, tomato and special sauce standard. Onions are free, but... More

This restaurant is a legacy famous for their burgers. We found them highly overrated and overcooked. Save your money and grill them at home.

We used to go to the old Red Coat Tavern in Royal Oak and was pleasantly surprised to see this location in West Bloomfield. They have lots of great menu choices but the burgers were what we went for. They did not disappoint! Everything was excellent including the service! We will come back again!

This is nice for late night since the kitchen is open until 2am. I had an appetizer and a beer. It is very dark however.

The burger was amazing. I was skeptical that the beef I got (Piedmontese) was healthier than chicken breast, but after looking it up, I am in awe. Make sure you try it with their zip sauce. Their homemade "Sauce" that comes on the burgers is good, but they lay it on a bit heavy so next time I'll order it... More

Been a number of times over the past several years. While the original restaurant in Royal Oak still has a more authentic Redcoat feel, this Redcoat serves the same food. Service has been pretty good most of the time, but the real reason to come here is for the burger. Clam chowder is very good as well. While I haven't... More

Now its just a burger place. The bar is great and Bisher and Aaron make it great. The Valet is a pain. It's the only restaurant where the Valet takes all of the spaces by the door, so if you don't or can't valet, you park on the opposite side of the building. I have left a few times because... More

The burgers are good, but every topping is an additional charge. By the time you add a few, your burger can come to $10-15. Way to ouch for what it is!

It's loud and crowded and you'll have to wait a few minutes for a table, but the food is worth it. The burgers are grat, and the Piedmontese beef burgers are just as good with much less fat. I absolutely love the mussels in broth with tons of fresh garlic. Close your eyes and you could be in France! The... More
