We had heard of Redamak's fame for its hand made burgers, so we braved a very rainy day and visited the place with all the family. Luckily there was parking on either side of the building. Being a weekend it was full and very noisy. We started off with ordering the local Michigan beers with fried cauliflower and jalapeño cheddar... More

This is a must stop every time we go to Michigan. The setting is retro and the cheeseburgers are the best! Get there right at opening time or there will be a line.

Really fantastic burgers, old school feel, especially since it's cash only, be prepared. Typical menu selection for a burger joint and all is good. Be aware they are seasonal and close for the winter.

Love the velveta cheeseburgers! Fried cauliflower is delicious as well. Get there early so you don't have to wait in line! Try to get seated in the room to the right when you walk in, the other room is very loud.

A group of 12 of us were visiting northeast Indiana. We decided to meet at Redamak's for lunch. We visited on the last weekend of their season. Even though we arrived at 2:00 p.m. MI time, we still had to wait about 30 minutes for tables. The restaurant is a extremely popular place that has been in business for decades.... More

As three siblings growing up in northern Indiana, we were introduced to Redamak's at an early age. I have lived abroad for 46 years and come to Indiana every year to visit my family. I never miss a trip to Redamak's. It has scarcely changed in all those years. I can never choose between a cheeseburger or a sloppy joe... More

This restaurant is known for their hamburgers. Wide variety to choose from cheese to triple decker. They also have a wide variety of food at reasonable price. It is handicap accessible and easy to get to off the Main Street in New Buffalo. Wait staff are friendly and very helpful.
