“Great Burger!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The burgers are always perfect and I love their fries! Nice bar area, too. Fun for families, friends, or a solo trip.

“Great burgers, terrific onion rings!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were taken their by friends that live in Sterling Heights, knowing my husband really appreciates a great burger, they brought us to the right place. Very busy on the Saturday between Christmas and New Years at 2 in the afternoon, but no one seemed to mind the wait, the reward is the food! Nice atmoshpere, nice waitress and bartender. 3 out of 4 of us took burger parts home, too much in one sitting if you order the rings and a couple of beers. Wished I lived closer, I am sure I will find myself craving the food from time to time. A bit pricey for a burger, but so worth it!

Reviewed December 30, 2012

Despite other burger places popping up all over the place, Red Coat remains an establishment for a delicious burger. Highly recommend it.

“Ultimate Burger”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

It is simply the best burger. Once I start thinking about one the urge to splurge on this large juicy treat won't quit. It's always packed and that makes it all the more fun. I take everyone there when they visit.

“Mouth Watering.....”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

I would recommend starting with the onion rings with the home made ranch dressing, they will melt in your mouth! Then move onto the red coat tavern original burger. I chose blue cheese and crushed olives, they are fresh, crisp and a perfect combo with the blue cheese. The food is amazing and I can't wait to go back again. Also the kitchen is open until 1:40am, so it's perfect for late night and the atmosphere is good. The only downside is the tables are a little close together, other than that perfect!
