“Cheesewiz burgers!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Ordered a cheeseburger and fries in this vacation/harbor town popular spot. Burger and cheese was all gooey and soggy. Cheese looked like melted cheesewiz. Waitress said it was Velveeta. French fries has no taste. Any fast food place has better burgers.

“Consistently great!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I just read the website (http://www.redamaks.com/) that said they have been in business for 37 years. Well, I am 31 and my family has been coming here every summer my entire life just about, and I can honestly say that the food has been consistently great for my whole life! The double hamburger with a basket of french fries is my favorite, my wife usually orders a wrap or chicken sandwich, but she loves the burgers too. My little sister gets the grilled cheese, which she tells me is also great. My parents are burger fans as well!

Great place, fun atmosphere, they have two game rooms for kids (and adults too!) and a recently renovated porch, which is now a sort of three seasons room. We ate out here only once years ago when it was screened in, and came back this year to find that the porch was renovated and has large windows, so cooler on hot evenings! Sat out here and really enjoyed our time! I think they could double the size of the whole place and still pack it every night during the summer!

Cash only, but ATM on site....one suggestion: get there at odd times! The regular lunch and dinner hours are usually busy, but if we get there at say 4:30-4:45 and get seated, there isnt much of a wait. I read another review that said go before 4 for lunch pricing, so we will have to do that next year! Oh, and next year will be the first year our baby will be there, so carrying the tradition on to another generation!

Try Oink's ice cream up the road (US 12) for dessert! And remember, if you are coming from Chicago or Northern Indiana, New Buffalo is in the Eastern Time Zone, so they are an hour ahead of Chgo/Indiana time! Just a helpful hint, as we drive from STL to meet up with my parents in Long Beach/Michigan City for vacation! Enjoy!!

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

In the summer, the lines at Redamak's go out to the parking lot. I can't understand why--the food's average at best and the service isn't particularly good. You'll get a better burger across the street at Ozzie's.

“Good burgers good beer. Nice beach casual place for families”
Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We were a party of 11 and we were seated in 30mins. Lobby is always packed. Great atmosphere. Good service. Burgers are huge. Tasty. Reg fries were nothing special. Root beer floats were delicious. Go before 4 for lunch pricing. Has a nice arcade for kids. Cash only with ATM on site
