what do you think about the Pasta house, closing today is the last day for it. I was in there for lunch yesterday and one of their employees told us that the 14th would be the last day then they close for 10 days to remodel and reopen as a family dinner.... The owners just gave the employees 4 days notice.. I sure couldnt go without 2 weeks pay without a little advanced warning. This is pretty s**ty of them I would say!

What are they putting in there? I was in there last night and couldn't get anyone to seat us. The waiter we had was good, but the hostess was very rude.

I heard about this on Friday. I hate to see The Pasta House leave, it's our ONLY Italian restaurant, for now. We have enough "Diner" type establishments, not enough specialty places to eat.

We have lost quite a few restaurants since the peak a few years ago...

Shoney's
Western Sizzlin'
Bordeaux Pizza
Quizino's
Ruby Tuesdays, and now...
Pasta House

With the exception of maybe Fazzoli's or White Castle, I doubt we get anymore chain restaurants for a LONG time.

Poplar Bluff can't hold on to any restaurant that is not a buffet or burger joint. It has to contain fat and grease to the max to stay open. I think it sicks. I really like Pasta House. We have nothing else like it around here.

I heard a ziggy's resteraunt will be going in there,its kinda like a shoneys...But who knows people talk and spread rumors quickly...I would love to see a White Castle come in....There are so many people out there who love them and could afford to go out and eat then.

If the new place is going to employ the same useless staff how do they expect to make it? Pasta House had the worst service and uneven quality in their food. We went a few times when they first opened because I really like the one in Cape, but this one bore no resemblence other than menu..

I've noticed that the food and service at Poplar Bluff chain restaurants are inferior to food and service available at the same restaurants in other towns.

(Some) People don't seem to care or have pride in their jobs, so you get what we have here as an end result.

I agree with you. Everyone knew this, they were just milking for a tip. The wait staff at Pasta House is terrible. Why do you think they are going out? Their food is terrible, not consistent. The Pasta House in Farmington is great, but here in town, they don't know how to prepare it. It takes like it's out of a box from Wal-mart.
We go in there for Breakfast and they don't even ring up your ticket, they just take cash and most of the time, tell you that you can eat for free, and it encourages a big tip.
I think that's crooked, and probably one of the reasons they are going out. I mean come-on? do they just keep all those stubs from the front desk that way free breakfast, and turn them all in, and keep the money we paid for breakfast as their tip? Sweet deal is you ask me, but it's over now.
Hopefully they will get some "cleaner" wait staff.
