Has been a staple in the area for longer than most of us can remember! I have seen the expansion take place over the years and through that NOTHING has diminished. The staff and the quality of the food has remained steadfast! Best hamburger I have ever had, and love the rest of the menu as well!

Redamak's is a must after a day at the beach in Michigan. Great family atmosphere with burgers to please everyone! Casual dining at its best! It is cash only.

Its amazing how many people, families, large groups are crowded on the front porch of Redamaks for long waits to dine on hamburgers. They are delicious and very large. They even offer a homemade veggie burger. The wait seems to go quickly as most people are on vacation and relaxing, talking and just waiting around. The line seems to be... More

I took a friend of mine to Redamak's for lunch before we went to Four Winds Casino yesterday and enjoyed yet another great meal. This place is always buzzing with people especially in the summer with all the tourists coming to Michigan. Anyway, we both enjoyed their burger and fries along with some cool beverages. Their menu is very extensive... More

Heard and read the reviews so we thought we would stop. It was a mistake, they only take cash. They pretty much serve burgers a B day fries and from what we had I don't know what the appeal is. I think the cook forgot the seasoning in the meat because I have never had a more bland burger. Not... More

The food is okay, but nothing special. I realize they have been there for many years and are well known, and that is why they are so popular. I will never wait in line again to eat there. Lots of upcharges for fries, or for sauteed fish instead of fried fish. Burgers are just okay, buy really not worth the... More
