Unlike others, we did not order their legendary hamburgers. I ordered a taco salad. The onions were too strong. The salsa was tasteless. My husband's cheese soup tasted like it was instant even though it was supposed to be home made. His Perch for the first time in his life had no taste what so ever. The french fries tasted... More

My best work buddy's GF wanted a ride in my "Little Yellow Car" ( see avatar), so I stole her for a lunch date and we had lunch here. This place is a legend in the area, While not the best burger Ive ever had,(Hard Rock Cafe has that distinction) sure is right up there. We arrived just before it... More

If you ever cross the border heading north into Michigan DO NOT PASS this establishment up. Theres not another good place for a burger for at least 100 miles. We as a family always stop here on our way to our cottage to grab some of those world famous Velveeta burgers. Steamed to perfection with a very long list of... More

We stopped in at Redamak's near closing one night. We were very impressed with the staff and the quirkiness of the place. It was a great relief from the mass market chain restaurants. The burgers were great, too. We loved it.

Been a few times AND I can see the hype over the consistent service,food and atmosphere, Burgers are fresh as the pickles,onions and lettuce are crisp and crunchy when you take that first bite.The melted...

For more than 40 years it's been the Velveeta Burger. I tried the Bison Burger and I wished I'd stuck to the old standby. The interior is throwback to the 70's and very cool. The food is basic burgers and fries. They do have other things too but as I said, it's best to stick to the basics. They have... More

This food is fresh and good. It is a bit pricey for what it is. The burgers are very filling and the shakes are good. It gets really busy as the warmer months set in and it's only open part of the year. Good place for family or a laid back date evening.

Seems you can't make a trip through New Buffalo Michigan without stopping at Redamaks. They keep expanding the menu, so if you aren't in the mood for a burger, there's plenty of other choices. Cash only, so don't think you can use your credit card. I can guarantee that you will need plenty, but there is a on site money... More

Every time we go here, Redamak's lives up to their claim of serving the Legend. Burgers are excellent and the service is the same. They definitely have the system down pat! Very busy during the summer, but great during the spring and fall.
