We met family there on a Wednesday afternoon. We got there before they open at noon and there were a lot of people waiting outside for the doors to open. The burgers were very tasty and reasonably priced.

It is hamburgers, average, nothing exceptional. Will probably not go back again. I think the draw is they are open only in the summer.

My.wife and I stopped here for lunch. We just wanted to try the burgers, nothing fancy. We got a seat in the Patio Room immediately. Our server was polite with smiles. My wife ordered a cheesburger, I ordered the larger version of Velveeta Burger. Both came with our choice of toppings and fries. The burgers and fries were hot and... More

I hadn't been here in years but then went twice this summer. The first time I had relatives visiting Chicago from Ireland. I wanted to get them out of the city so we drove to New Buffalo via I-94, had lunch at Redamak's then meandered back on Hwy 12 through Michigan City. The burgers were a hit as was the... More

During the season you will need to wait in a long line to get in. Parking is difficult despite the apparently ample parking. The burgers and fries are the real deal. The health police would shut this place down in a heart beat, if you had one after the burger and fries. It could be a saloon, instead it is... More

Delicious Velveeta burgers and mid-week is not busy. A family tradition. The onion tribe are excellent and the staff are friendly.

Traveled from NW Indiana on the recommendation of forms -clearly worth the trip. Good food and service, although this was on an off day - we're told weekends can be crazy! Excellent hamburgers. My wife enjoyed her turkey burger also. Process reasonable. Definite 👍!

Redamak's: a legend(?). We went here every summer for five years because it became a part of our family vacation tradition. Until finally last summer, after another totally mediocre experience, we asked ourselves why we were wasting our time and money going to a restaurant that isn't very good? The wait is always ridiculously long. Even if you get a... More

Got to town 1/2 before they closed and was so happy they welcomed us! Service was super fast and the pulled pork with cherry chipotle sauce was awesome! We'll be back...as we always are, when we are in New Buffalo!

Thank schutz2015
