The burgers have become average...that or the world now makes a better burger. Just another road side attraction living on their reputation and the memories of visits in years gone by when the burgers rocked. Service average. Food/value average. This is a great place for...More

We've been coming to this area for a few years and have always noticed the crowd this place attracts. We finally decided to see what the fuss is about. We weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun, with interesting decor and an upbeat staff....More

We stop every year after our trip to st joe beach. Like always the burgers were awesome! Usually our service is very fast. They are prepared to serve a lot of people in a hurry. We waited about 30 minutes for our burgers. Our main...More

We try to visit Redamak's at least once a year. The atmosphere is laid back and casual. After a long day at the beach, their burgers and cold drinks are the BEST!

We heard all about this local favorite and were urged to go, but we were not at all impressed. My zucchini fries were clearly NOT hand-battered and arrived burnt, the lake perch serving was tiny, the salads came out with the meals (not beforehand), and...More

I have friends who love this place, and it's worth a stop at least once. It's a nice place and the burgers are very good. It's just that the couple times we have been there service is incredibly slow. We also always seem to forget...More

Yummy reasonably priced food. Enjoyed a chicken sandwich with ham, swiss cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. More than enough fries in the side basket. Lots of people waiting but it's a big place and our wait was just 15 minutes on a busy summer evening.

I like to eat, but I couldn't finish the "double" burger. Great ambience and service. They actually had a small but diverse beer selection. The Bloody Mary was one of the best I have had in a long time. Worth the wait!

Been going here for twenty plus years. Best atmosphere in the area. Watch out during the summer months as all the out of town people come and the wait can easily exceed an hour. Cash only! And try the reds chips for an appetizer.

I was afraid this place was overrated but today I had the best cheeseburger I can remember- just a single burger with cheese and added mushrooms. Remember this place is cash only, no cards. Great for kids!

Early afternoon is usually a good time. They have a business mans special during the week so you can save a little bit. Great place and worth any wait.
