    The manager was so nice. I had my hands full with my newborn and he came out to open the door for me, carried my food to my car and made sure I was good to go. Wonderful service.......for carry out!

    I absolutely love! Dimly lit and cozy. Casual little bar/restaurant with mouth watering food! Burgers are their main game but they make it all well. Chowders, Corned beef, Fish n Chips.... Yummy

    The Piedmontese burger used to be my favorite along with those of my family friends and coworkers. However, it seems that in the last couple years the quality of the beef has fallen to a low.

    When i want a good burger & a beer, I always think Redcoat Tavern. I'm not one to put a lot of toppings, although there are plenty to select from, I enjoy a simple burger.

    Go here even if you have to drive from Ohio - good selection on burger toppings, drinks, and other. Great food- my order burger medium with brntonions, banpeppers, provolone, sautéed mush, on pumpern

    Ignore the cheesy red lighting and order up a great burger with amazingly flavorful Piedmontese beef. I believe this is only the place in Michigan that serves these.

    Probably the best Burger I've ever eaten in the US, wish we could have these over in Europe. Don't be scared about the dimmed red light and missing day light inside

    If you're a beer person, ask for their library list. Onion rings are a must. And of course the burger, black & blue
