This restaurant has two locations. The original on Woodward in Royal Oak and the one in W. Bloomfield on Orchard Lake Road. The original is dark, crowded and uncomfortable, but you can't usually buy a table. Go figure. It is on everyone's short list of Detroit's best burger. Great chowder as well. Try the onion rings! There are also a... More

I go the red coat tavern about 1 time a week with my family. I usually get a Piedmontese burger and it really is the best burger you can buy. I also like the fillet and the shoestring fries. This restaurant has a friendly and very nice staff always. 1 of my favorite all time restaurants.

Was in town for business, but met family for dinner at Red Coat Tavern. Heard the burgers were amazing so I needed to try it myself. 1/2 pound burger cooked to perfection...very tasty. Ambiance is typical for this type of a restaurant. A little load and cramped when it got busy, but it was definitely worth it. Highly recommend.

As with other site on Woodward Ave this family owned restaurant is great for quiet get togethers or groups. Have to try their signature clam chowder and ANY burger.

This hamburger is delicious! It's seasoned so well and the sauce is wonderful! Add some onion rings and you're in for a treat. Call ahead to get your name on the list cuz the wait can be an hr on a weekend.

I met with a colleague recently at the Red Coat Tavern. A nice, relaxed bar-type of atmosphere with outdoor seating. We ate indoors and had excellent service. The salads were very good. I would put this on my list of places to meet between Detroit and Ann Arbor.
