When i use to eat at Coltons would have to say that all were lacking the attentiveness that is required of a server, seemed to be more interested in socializing with co-workers. there is no structure as far as teaching the staff how to preform their task....

So i
would have to say ask Herman, he is the only reason that i might come in for a another attempt to be treated like a patron!

a real server would not have to ask this, He/She would know!!!

I love Coltons!!!! I think their "attentiveness" is just right!!! I don't want my server to constantly be coming over and checkin on me if there is no need!!!! I'm sorry if you want a server to check you out or be all in your business.... Ppl go to restaurants to eat not to sit around and stare at their servers and know their every move. I'm sure you would get better service if you tiped a little better because I always get GREAT service and tip accordingly.

I never tip less than 20%...Obviously you don't get it. I've been in the industry for more than 20yrs... i don't want them hovering but i would like to keep the glass filled the silverware clean,the food hot and server to the correct person,and if the foods not rite for them to accept the blame and not stick it to the kitchen...as a server they are the liaison for me to the kitchen so they should know the food as good if not better than the patron...P.s. I waited tables for 5yrs before i became aChef in several 3&4 star establishment all over the united states...Simply if one restaurant in PB would focus on the servers and train them accordingly they would rule the town..

A Server: is someone that loves and knows the menu without looking can answer all question using no more than 4 words. and never is a friend to the patron...simply their to smile and give 100% to receive 20%.

Obviously you dont understand that servers only get paid 3.15 an hour to suck ass!!!! If your food isnt warm its the kitchens fault, if the silver isnt clean its the dishwasers fault, and a server doesnt have to be well trained to know to keep a drink glass full.....

Wrong! When i started serving i was paid 2.15 and hour and paid 835.0 a month jus for rent in Chicago..and averaged at least 25% and that was in 1988 so i call bullshyte, from the sound of it your one of those servers that blames instead of going that little extra for the patron... if the food is not right/hot you the server are to blame. I know the waitstaff doesnt wrap the silverware so B.S. again...you know what to do you just choose not to and blame it on having to suck ass!!!

maybe you should consider another job?

Helped open the Wine Rack but never cooked for them!

allow me to explain i like several restaurants in P.B. and several show promise..the point i'm trying to get across is they are not training the staff to appreciate the food first the patron second and the job last...that is why its called "CUSTOMER SERVICE"

As a waiter in a posh 4star establishment in St louis i was told the first day "check the ego at the door & if you cant kiss ass and like it leave!!!

Tell ya what the comment that it is a steakhouse is the only thing you got right, but as a patron i work hard for that money that buys that steak, and expect my server to take that same frame of mind. the fact that its P.B. is a cop out!...and the real problem with food service in this area.

GET OVER YOURSELF!!! most everyone in pb likes colton's and likes their service as well... go somewhere else to bitch about colton's, you arent gonna find many ppl to agree with you here...

LOL:), OBVIOUSLY THEY DON'T, if everyone loved Coltons the place would be packed 24-7...Not looking for people to agree,and not bitching... seems you have a chip on your shoulder and realize you could be a bettr server or could expect more as a patron, but too lazy to act on it!

Not debating with you on people loving Coltons,just that there are issues about the servers,not only in Coltons but everywhere, Herman would agree with all that I've said just ask him?

Been real, mayb you learned something? If not you know where to find me...

I used to work at Colton's. Granted, there were some servers that were lazy, but for the most part they work very hard and get little in return. For your information, while I was employed there, the servers did roll the silver. I worked there for 6 years and worked my butt off everyday, with little appreciation for what I did do. Most of the servers earn every penny and deserve more. As for myself, I loved working for the public and enjoyed waiting on the good people of Poplar Bluff. I also believe they enjoyed having me as their server, or they wouldn't have come back on a regular basis.
