REVIEWS OF Red Coat Tavern IN Michigan

Woodson Woodson

The bartenders practice is to taste drinks before giving them to customers by using a straw to draw up some of the liquid, taste it then throw the straw away. I wasn’t feeling that at all. I talked to a manager and he was aware of the practice and authorizes it to prevent customers from complaining about the taste of drinks. I offered a solution of poring a small amount into another glass but he didn’t seem interested in changing this practice. I won’t be returning to this restaurant because who can guarantee none of their spit ends up in what is given to customers. No thanks.

Karima Humes

Good atmosphere great music, didn't eat however there food is really good

Stephanie Simmons

Piedemontese burger is fantastic, as always. Bar staff are the best!

Evan Qarana

It's not just the burger. I've been here many times and tried most of the entrees and everything has been absolutely delicious. The service is also consistently good.

Qi Sun

Nice Burger. Excellent service.

Nicolas Paulin

Great burgers. Heavy batter on pickles and onion rings.

RE Chanel

Calamari was delicious. I loved the atmosphere but the waitress was too flirtatious with my man.

Jeff Kingzett

This is a great place to stop after work. Great service. Great people to talk to.

Kristanna Kaschner

Great food, but a little loud for my taste. It wouldn't have been so bad but I was with a larger group, and I couldn't hear the people across the table from me a lot of the time. However, there was one plus to the noise: my one year old niece was with us, and she likes to scream and yell for no reason (as toddlers do), but because it was so loud in there, we couldn't really even hear her!


Been coming to red coat for years and years. Absolutely best hamburgers around Michigan and also a huge fan of the filet and garlic mashed potatoes. Make sure you get the secret sauce with the hamburgers.


One of the best burger places in Farmington. Things to avoid though: plain mac and cheese or any fish entree or obviously no chicken sandwich. If you're here get their burgers and enjoy the craft beer selection. Haven't tried cocktails.


Only been here twice but I loved the fried mushrooms and they have great drinks !

yousif yatooma

one of the best restaurants in town with very reasonable prices.

Amanda Meagher



This place is known to have some really good burgers, but I’d have to say they’re pretty overrated. Don’t get me wrong they’re pretty good, but nothing special really. There are a lot of places that make much better burgers. Besides that everything else is really good. Great service and great atmosphere.

Tony Moretti

Food is incredible. Prepare for a wait to get a table.


The best burger I have had in a longtime. And great customer service

jehiquita yharbrough

Our Server Jane was awesome... great food and drinks

Rick Stratton

Great bar service!

Susan Nyman

We were originally seated in the restaurant. It was extremely loud. We asked to move to a table in the bar. It was much quieter. My friend and I had a glass of wine and salads. The house Cabernet was good as was the salad we split. The service was great. I would recommend the Red Cost Tavern!

Don Ferguson

One of the best burgers we've ever had! The topping selection is amazing too!

Colin Murphy

Excellent service and great recommendations from our waitress! We got the beef tips as an appetizer. It’s one of my favorites now. So delicious. I got the Cuban sandwich last time and it wasn’t my favorite but the pot pie is very good and pretty unique! Definitely will keep going back.

Patrick Cavanaugh

Stop in for a bite to eat good food and great people

Sandra Smith

I love a good burger and had heard good things about RC tavern. The burger was really big, and the choices of toppings to put on it(complimentary)were great! That being said, I've had better favored burgers at many other local places... Perhaps the cook just forgot to put seasoning on it, but it definitely lacked any flavor! I was very disappointed. I'd rather have the flavor in the burger rather than the toppings . I will say it was a very busy place, so I assume the food must be good. However, personally I won't recommend the burger-at least not the regular one. Maybe the Piedmontese burger is better I'll stick with my Miller's cheeseburger and onion rings; much better flavor, and less expensive.

john schuman

good food, good service

Linda Lee

The waiter/bartender Bachir also known as "Tall, dark and handsome" was SUPERB. The chopped salad and ham sandwich were a delight. Large enough for my sister and I to split.

Sss Kkk

Good food nice place

Michelle Houston

Kind of long wait but it was a Friday night. Once seated, food came fast and was delicious! Our server was great and cute, lol. Atmosphere was pub like which was great because we had a very busy and loud toddler with us. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Doug Boyce

Great food great burger. Reasonably priced. A little short on parking so don't be fooled because wait time is almost always reasonable

Mary Johnson

Prime Rib tough and chewy. Perch just ok, NO Seasoning. Guess you just have to get the burgers here. Only thing they make good.

Wahab Aldousari

One of the best burgers I’ve ever had.

James A. Brown

Fish & chips,mussels, & the seafood are my suggestions- hot toddy with Jameson!!

Patrick Stemmler

Jason, the bartender awesome. Give thar man a raise. Lite some candles on our dessert for our anniversary

Bruno B

A terrific beer list. Average Fries. A reasonably priced burger. Their classic burger was delivered, as ordered, medium rare. The burger itself was surprisingly tasteless. Additionally, it only had few thin strands of lettuce and did not have the ordered raw onion. When the onion finally caught up with the burger, the burger was cold. So, it was returned. They offered to make a replacement, but my companion was almost finished, so I declined. I will not return.


Great food and reasonable pricing for the quality but place needs cleaning as dusty areas along with smelly area by the bar and bathroom

Steve Mccoy

Very good food nice place

Jeff Warson

Known for their piedmontese burgers, which are delicious. Weird noise acoustics. $$$

Richard Ozdowy

Just as good as the Royal Oak location, but don't expect it to be less busy. They do take call aheads, but even with that you can expect a wait.

Ashley Attisha

Best ceasar salad and onion rings in town!

Amol Bhalla

Go for the atmosphere, but don't stick around for the food. It's a great bar, super busy the night we went standing room only. I ordered carry out, two burgers, a side of fries, and wings. The burger was somewhat flavorless, the wings were not crispy, and the fries looked and tasted like they had been under a heat lamp for a while. To equate, it was a glorified Burger King meal, so save your money on the food and go to burger king and save yourself some money.

James Bannister

A good burger tavern with a nice selection on beer

Mike Partridge

What an amazing burger place! I have been here a few times for lunch. The staff is great. The burgers are amazing and give you some good options for adding additional ingredients, like bacon, fried eggs, different cheeses, etc. The onion rings are huge and delicious. I highly recommend the burgers here I have never been less than stuffed when leaving.

Ronya Bell

Food was great per usual. This was my first time to this location and I loved it. Met up with family to celebrate my birthday. Erin, our waitress, was phenomenal! She made sure everyone was well taken care of. Most of us had clam or seafood chowder and burgers. A few had the fish. This location is roomier than then Woodward location but I love both. The food did not waiver between the two. Tried the bread pudding as well. It is ok. Not what I was expecting but not bad. I'll be back for sure!

Pfeffernusse Aaten

Fantastic! I had heard about this place having delicious burgers, and they were not wrong. Amazing burger cooked perfectly with the sweet potato fries that were also exceedingly tasty. Our Waiter Jason was on fire, he did an exceptional job and was very helpful with every question we had. We ended out night with bread pudding and Pot du Creme (Super Chocolate Pudding). That Bread pudding was phenomenal!! And that du Creme was pulchritude of Chocolate.

samer Saad

Food is great! Service is okay at best.

Vincent Nesci

Inside noise level very high. Need to put sound baffle in. 4 star if not for the noise. Food good.

Brent Cseke

Great food and service!

Jay Hayes

It's Red Coat Tavern; if your looking for a phenomenal

Jane Jacobs

Food was great (a little pricey) burgers are huge! Service was good, resturant was clean. The only complaint I really have is it's really loud. They need buffers or ceiling tiles to quiet the place down. I really enjoy hearing conversation with my companions without yelling.

Tami Tucker

Very nice staff and meal.

Sheila Bradford

Very lively place. Good food and drinks. A good place to go late night

Mike Nagy

You need to put a sign out frt looks like a deserted building. Need to paint exterior an appealing color and buy some lighting for interior. You have worst building in a nice area.

Eric Fernando

Great food in a pub atmosphere.

Grace Gardner

Great food. Dined on the rooftop which was amazing!

Farid Nossoni

Excellent Burger, possibly best burgers in metro Detroit area!!

Zaria Kinnebrew

Deliscious! I usually go for the burgers and onion rings but lat time I tried the blackened white fish special.... and a fudge cream puff for dessert. I was in heaven for the entire duration of my dinning experience

J Williams

Friendly staff. decent burger although what I get from Five Guys tastes better. tasty but oily onion rings.

Multi Vendi

Its an ok place. Food is very oily.

Nick Gonzalez

Great vibe, good crowd. Food and drinks are fantastic.

Brendan Callaghan

Excellent burgers and I love the chicken pot pie. Kitchen is open late and service is always good. Best burger in Detroit!!

Dan Schell

Very good burgers. They are a higher-class Mr. Joe's so I call them Sir Joseph's.

Christopher Guiao

Best clam chowder...PERIOD!!! Great hangout spot, delicious pub food

Lisa Klick

Seated immediately by a friendly hostess. The waitress was really nice and prompt. The tenderloin was delicious and the sauce was perfect! The Mahi sandwich and breaded mushrooms were also wonderful as usual.

Kathy Morin

Awesome burger! Out waitress was great too. She approached our table just enough and was pleasant and efficient. Different atmosphere than the Royal Oak restaurant - it's a lot more comfortable cozy. Everything worked in the bathroom and it was seemingly clean throughout the entire restaurant.

Fred Pratt

Great burger! Too crowded and noisy.

Nathan Oppie

Food was good and service was good. Got there right as they opened for an early lunch and it was extremely quiet. Sat in the outdoor section and it was nice to be outside. Had a cup of the NE Clam chowder and liked it a lot. Ordered the "Brasserie Burger" and it was great. Pretty messy but the flavor was good and had a good balance. Reasonable price as well at $12 for their best burger. Regular red coat was just under 10 I think. Would come again to try other things on the menu. Everything looked good and was in a really nice part of town. Nothing over the top to make it 5 stars but a good burger at a good price.

Tymm Earl

This place never fails, if you want a great burger, this is the place! I decided to try the Chesapeake, a mahi mahi burger, Delicious! Jason our Waiter was fantastic, and on top of everything. Not one of our current drinks when dry.

Terence Mack

Great Food & Drinks. Well worth the price. Everything was Amazing!!!

Amber Harris

I wish it wasn't so expensive for a burger but they are delicious!! Better signage out front would be good but we found it!! Love the two locations.

MeLinda M

If you don't know it's there, you may miss it - their sign blew away in a recent storm. The staff are welcoming, the food is fantastic (best hamburger ever!) & it has a very laid-back, relaxed atmosphere. My sister & I went for a Saturday afternoon lunch & even bonded with the patrons sitting next to us, who excitedly told us about their new puppy

Daniel Romero Sánchez

Best burgers around the area. Pricey but totally worth it

Kianoush Khaghany

Great local pub and burger and brewhouse. One of our family favorites. Wish they still has the turkey burger but their Piedmontese burger is great and generally healthier than fatty blends.

Kymberlyn Crowell

Great burger. Great service

shandra burdett

Excellent service.Amazing food

Briana Cartwright

One of the better burgers in Michigan and stays open late. Also like they have a lambic. The onion rings are the best I've had.

Natasha Crawford

Great service, great drinks, great food! #cantlose

Samuel Porter

Great service and food

Jacquelynn Bisinov

Great service! Beth was atmosphere, and the wine and beer selection was on point.

Peggy McNamara

First time eating here. Food and service was great. We'll be back.

Jessica Kelly

Absolutely love red coat, if you go there try the red coat burger (it is phenominal) along with their fries. Which I must say is the better version of McDonalds fries. Which seems impossible but it is the truth! Great service, food comes at a fast pace. The BEST place to get burgers in Oakland County. Bring your appetite!!!

Jim Mikola

Their signature burger is amazing. The fries and onion rings are also excellent (not sure which I like better they're both so good). I also tried the Scotch Eggs which were perfectly cooked. My only complaint is the parking lot was completely full and I had to park at the business next door.

Marc Szymanski

Friendly service and delicious food! My coworker was pleased that his burger (ordered medium) actually came to him cooked medium! I've never been disappointed.

Ahmed-Hani El-Sharkawy

They have good burger but meet to better select there staff. I called one time to place an order and they out me on hold 5 times in a row. Pathetic...

Aaron Simpson

The burgers here are excellent and you have many options to customize it to your liking. Very good sweet potato fries are available but not on the menu. Plenty of draft choices but no cocktail menu.

Heather Blanco

The hotel that I was staying at recommended the Red Coat Tavern even though they had a restaurant. Fun place, good menu options. I had the Brassarie Burger, one they are known for. It did not disappoint! Delish. If you are seeking a good burger in the area I have to suggest this place. Staff was very friendly and attentive. If I had to make one criticism, it's not a quiet place, it's rather loud. But it's a fun atmosphere regardless.

Chris Hartman

The burgers and salads here are top-notch. We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and were seated right away. Service was quick, despite a fairly full house.

Marie Sutton

Excellent as always. Boston clam chowder unbeatable, Chris our waitress was the best!

Bonnie Bihary

Noisy, service slow but food excellant.

Maddie's World

Mila was awesome! Get there early to get seat at the bar.

Randy Wittorp

Great food and atmosphere; the burgers do not disappoint.

Sue L

Famous for their burgers, which do not disappoint. Try the onion rings instead of fries and ask for the zip sauce on the side.

Hollywood E

I love the Caesar salad with salmon!!!

Roman Gardner

Fantastic burgers! Try the smoked Gouda and you will never be disappointed. $10-$25 plates and is all a la carte. Very nice atmosphere with patio seating.

Tara Khami

Delish!! Best shepherds pie ever!!

Vahidreza Azar

Good food and fast

Chenxing YU

Very overrated burgers, oily and tasteless. Could only eat two bites. No idea why it’s always packed.

Jeff Grant

Lively place, I enjoyed it.

Craig Boroff

Great service, Awesome Food Best Onion Rings anywhere!

BZA Arthur

Very good cocaine.

Marwan Younis

Good spot to grab a drink and have a bite to eat. Love coming here on weekends to chill with friends

Dan Hoppe

What a wonderful place to eat, drink and be merry. The service was the best in town.

Tommy Hodges

They have the best hamburger on the West side


Food was good. Service was good, even with how very busy the restaurant was. Appreciated complimentary valet parking. Waited 15-20 minutes for table in the entry space that was not meant for so many bodies. Restaurant was noisy. Hall to restroom and women's restroom was dirty (napkins and paper towels on the floor). Ok for casual meal but not great.

Tony McHugh

Great atmosphere and food

Charlie Lee

The best burger I ever had!

TayNinh Miller

Food/service was excellent. There was no wait, and I arrived at peak time, on a Friday evening (7pm). Although the bar was packed, my party was able to be seated quickly. Food is FANTASTIC!

Piper Eaton

Best Onion rings in town! I love the strawberry mojito that Melia makes absolutely delicious!!

Debbie Phinney

Burgers and fries are delicious!

yousif hammi

Went there for a wake. Nice selection of wine. Food was great! Nice atmosphere!

Abe A.

Best burger in Michigan

Bruce Welford

Excellent food and atmosphere. Be prepared for the wait, but well worth it.

Pamela Laws

Prime rib excellent. Sides were cold but passable. Busy too.


I saw the reviews online and thought i might give it a try. I was flabbergasted by the quality and heartyness of my food and drinks. Great job

Charlie P

I've been here twice and felt like the waitress was bothered to serve me and my table. We really like the food was so-so and over priced. I won't be back again

Mike Star

Great price great place your server to see is Jason.

Jamey Price

Fantastic burgers. Pricey, but well worth the cost. I've paid $30+ for burgers elsewhere that were not better than these. The onion rings are also stellar.

Inara Michele

Pretty good British Pub, nice atmosphere.

Tara Roberts

The best burgers in metro Detroit. Love both locations, but if you go to the West Bloomfield location, ask for Ali. She was the BEST server, super nice and just plain fun. Also, try the brassiere burger. It's amazing!

Dan Ristovski

Well,. Normally I give this place 5 stars but this time was different. So, my wife and I ordered the burgers, of course, but this time, the meat was not seasoned at all. I mean,. No salt, no pepper. It was cooked properly, but so bland, I didn't even finish it.

Tyco New

Very lively place, great drinks. Thristle cross is an amazing cider. Burgers are okay, but other dinner options are great.

Kent Richards

Good food and good service. As good as the original

Johnny Miller

Really good food, kinda small for my taste. And parking is bad. You can pay for valet but it's not worth it in my opinion. The hostess was nice, so was my waitress. I will be returning. Oh yeah... get the Mac n Cheese!

Greg Leblonc

We were in town on business and the hotel reception told us about this place. Very good burgers in a simple environment. Went twice in 3 days... just about says it all. Will go again once back in the area.

Melissa Degen

The burgers are fantastic! I also love the Mount Vernon with turkey. And don't skip out on the fries or onion rings. They also have a solid beer and wine list.

Perspectives RNCM

This place never dissapoints. The bread pudding is a phenom!

Tracy Marzett

First time there I enjoyed the food.

Ali Allam

GREAT Burgers. Even better, is their Tenderloin Tips appetizer. Service is not always consistent, but is usually pretty good. Would highly recommend.

TheSterling Critic

The cob salad with chicken was amazing just added red onion and changed out the blue cheese for Feta cheese

Kenya Hillie

Second visit great service and food this is a great place to eat. Outside seating really enjoyable.

Adam Glass

This is the place if you want to have a great burger, just the way you want it. All types of options are available, regarding toppings, even ones you've never thought of before. Literally the only place around that is open late, we're talking 1:40 a.m., something impossible to find in the surrounding area. Great rest of the menu, but the Hamburger stands above all else. Little secret: though not on the menu, you can order sweet potato French Fries. Be sure to add a pinch of salt, changes how they taste. Experiment yourself.

Chris Munte

Absolutely fantastic food. The service was great and managed to make sure our meal went smoothly. Went for lunch and had an amazing burger at a very reasonable price. Not exactly the type of place to go every day, but a go to for any special occasions.

Adam Keith

Excellent beer selection and the food is made with quality ingredients. Nice traditional pub atmosphere, my only knock would be the service is average.

Mohammad Rahber

Our hotel suggested this place when we were visiting Detroit. The waiter was friendly and suggested good items to try off the menu since this was our first time. My wife had their famous hamburger (without any modifications) and I had the Lake Perch which the waiter had suggested. Both tasted amazing! The burger was the best we ever had. I could just have the bun without the patty - it was so soft and juicy. The lake perch was a surprise to me as well. Definitely going back for that burger though.

Lauren Larsen

Onion rings were amazing, food was good but a I thought it was a bit pricey for the environment and service compared to other options available. Server was very distant; he didn't make any mistakes to our orders but just was not very friendly and rubbed me totally wrong. Atmosphere... Crazy claustrophobic for me. Tables are way too close together for my liking and the music was so loud that I had to scream for my brother to hear me from across the table.

Laura Solomon Says

I mean everything here is delicious but you really must get the onion rings.

Judy Wang

I usually go to the one in royal oak and been going to that one for over 10yr no issues. We stop by this one by orchard lake rd on Tuesday night a little after 10:30pm. The place was not busy. But the hostess was busy looking at her phone looks like. She took a minute to look up. She then seated us. We sat for some time no one came to our table. Finally a waiter ask if we been help we said “no” he walked off without saying if he can take our order. Then few minutes pass we see the waiter and ask him if he can check who is our sever. The waiter walked over to the hostess and then towards the back. We wait patiently finally we meet our waitress who took our order. The food came fast after the order and tested fine. Will not come back feel like bad management with out care for their customers.

Alex Temple

Good food and fair prices. Simple menu but if you want a burger, sandwich, and/or a beer it's a great place to stop in. My only complaints are the takeout containers are styrofoam and the parking lot is tiny.

Lee Cochran

I have been going to this place when it was Zinc and them they changed it to Red Coat...The food has always been good and the staff have been great.We always ask for Jason.....

Enjoli Johnson

I just love this place perfect bar after work Affair the food is delicious the price is Affordable the atmosphere is laid-back love it love it love it


I was under the impression they have amazing burgers here. It was so so to say the least. Nice decor, great atmosphere, will return to try another menu item.

A little bit of everything With Laura

I’m bummed it was disappointing. I’ve heard such great things. The fries were great, but the burgers were not. Detroit burger bar has the best burgers. Our server was amazing though. I want to say Christine? Shorter, a little older, long blonde hair. Tried again: June 2019 at lunch. Bad service, food still not great at all. Bummer it was bad service for lunch. Can’t remember guys name that served us. Not good.

Tasnuba Qureshi

Used to the dimly lit one on Woodward, but this was good for a late night meal.

Jeanene Cooper

Relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable seating. Professional staff. Our waiter was equally awesome and handsome. The food was amazing. You have to get a drink! I definitely return for all of the above.

matthew katz

Food is always great here. Good service and very strong mixed drinks top it off. Very consistent food here.

Sonny Mendoza

Great place for a burger and a beer. If you have difficulty reading in dark rooms check out the menu online before hand. Upgrading to the Piedmontese beef is well worth it.

Bill Niester

Always a favorite with the best burgers in metro Detroit.also a kick butt beer selection.

Sena Hermiz

The food options are limited, I guess it's more of a burger place. The service was good.

Ieisha Humphrey

Great service that was QUICK! We went on a Saturday and while it was busy, once seated, out server was on it. He knew the menu and had appropriate suggestions. It's not a large place (but larger than the Woodward location) so expect a little wait time if you go on the weekend.

Darrell Adams

Never had a bad experience at the redcoats tavern. Friendly staff, and food is always cooked as requested

Nicole Smith

Awesome service! First time guest and both bartenders (I should have asked for their names) were amazing. Very polite and made sure everyone at bar was satisfied.

Todd Lee M.D.

No place better to get a burger. Best I've ever had and if you get the Piedmontese beef it's only 2 grams of fat for 50 g protein

Kevin Bogins

Had a good meal and the service was good

laurent lee

The budget was great

Shelly Wisnowski

Almost missed it! The signage is hard to see at night. We drove right by the first time. If you have ever been to the Red Coat Tavern on Woodward you will know the menu, as it was the same at this location. The decor/atmosphere is very different. More upscale. I came from the movies in a hoodie and jeans and felt a lil underdressed. Overall thumbs up. Excellent drink and beer options. Great service. The burger you know and love.

Matthew S

Best burgers iv found

Dana Bastien

Service was great very helpful and friendly. But food was awful

Danielle Clark

I absolutely love the burgers here... definitely top shelf selections. Very attentive staff and service.

Malaka Saleh

I can go here every single day and never get sick of it. Their food is amazing. Dessert is amazing. Just a little loud but it’s whatever.
