“Drive on By”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Walked in and a man was smoking at the bar (even thought it was banned by the State of WI 2 1/2 years ago). Met family in the dining room and the carpet was stained, the table had not been wiped down, the veggies in the salad bar were wilted/turning brown, and three out of five entrees were undercooked. Also, the waitress disappeared part-way through our meal and when we went to pay our bill we found her sitting at the bar.

“Not as good as it was with the previous owners....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Renegades has a nice salad bar which is unusual for the area. However, the food coming out of the kitchen can be very inconsistent....sometimes good....sometimes not so much.

The biggest change is that since it changed hands, the service has absolutely dive bombed. There are no friendly servers and certainly none that are efficient. No one will ever ask you how things are, check to see if you need a second drink, beer or glass of wine. If you go in search of them, they act like you are severely putting them out.

The previous owner, an extremely friendly, pleasant young man, would always stop by the table and welcome you and ask you how everything was. He also seemed to be very hands on making sure that service was excellent for all of the diners. So this change for us has been very disconcerting.

FYI: The atmosphere is very bright...much like a school cafeteria. I know some people like that, but we don't.
