I was made aware that some of the 4-H kids took buyer's letters into Country Bob's Restaurant as they do every year. However, the new owners definitely are not interested in becoming part of the community. They took the buyer's letter and walked rudely into the kitchen, waded it up, and threw it in the trash. Do they really know where their business comes from? Not to mention they are rude to the customers, food quantities are minimal, and they need to learn how to cook chicken and fish. Bloody Chicken is nasty!! They have ran all the old help off and replaced with of course mostly Rolla employees. I have never been to a restaurant that the owners are so rude to the customers. A smile and how was your food goes a long way. Now this has happened to a 4H child. Shame on you for bring your rudeness to St. James. I hope your business flops and it is well on its way!!!

Agreed! I was there the other night and was not impressed. I had a very nice waitress but the owners were quit hateful. And being that they were so busy, there were groups of people standing around. At times there were children standing at my table watching my children and I as we ate our food.

I ate there a couple of weeks ago and had a great experience. Food was awesome and service was really good.

If I get this right a buyers letter is a letter that the 4-H kids who have livestock at the fair pass out to local businesses inviting them to come and bid on their livestock that they sale at the fair. They raise the livestock themselves then sale them at fair time. It is a great tradition every year to go to these auctions. They work hard taking care of these animals and take great pride in selling them. Most kids save their money for college.
To show such rudeness and disrespect to these kids is beyond me. Hopefully their grandchildren will never have to go thru this. This is not the first story I have heard about them being rude to children. One small boy was talking to his father (Not the owner) and just said "these mashed potatoes are not real they are instant) the owner turned around to this small boy and said "if you don't like it get back there (pointing to the kitchen) and peel and cook them yourself" The boy was speaking to his father!!
I have tried the resturant since these people took over and the food and service is really went down. I do not understand why they are so rude. If they do not like the citizens of St. James why did they come here and buy the business.
With our options limited they do still have business so there are always cars parked there. But it is getting fewer and fewer. It will defintely be fewer now. DON'T MESS WITH OUR KIDS!!!
I know their family and friends(?) will get on here and post something about them being so nice and the food being good, but the word is out and to Julia and Tom if you do not change your ways your business is on its last leg. I hope you will take this to heart. If you get to know us we the people of St. James are not so bad. As long as you show respect to us and OUR KIDS!!!!

I ate there for the first time about a week ago and the food was excellent. And the service was great.

I went there about a month ago and I found the food so so and the waitstaff was awful. I go out of my way to be friendly to waitstaff because I know how it is, I've worked in a restaurant before. But I will NEVER go back their again.

Raw chicken is not the only thing raw you get there.They have a habit of serving about everything raw.
But to do that to kids is unforgivable. These kids work hard all year on these animals. If they do not want to support the kids of this town then I do not want to support them and there business. We do not have much to choose from in St. James as far as resturants goes that is why they still have business but I will be passing the word around as to how they treat our kids and our town. Rolla and Cuba is not that much further to drive. I do not want to spend my hard earned money on these kinds of people. Wake up owners you are here to serve us. If you do not like us close shop and move on. What are your plans anyway? You have to know treating people like that will not get you business.
Until I hear an apology was made I will not be back and I will continue to spread the word. I am sorry but like Hometown girl said, Don't mess with our kids. I am sure you would not like someone to treat yours that way.

I have an idea....let's believe everything we hear on topix....if you think that is the way things were handled why don't you go ask the owners yourself. Sounds to me like someone isn't telling the whole story. Just a thought.

ive been there before and people are correct on the rudeness issue. the lady owner is very full of herself and that is why we quit going. first time she wasnt there and the whole atmosphere was different the next time it felt as if the whole staff was holding their breath! we havent been back since.

I don't haveto ask her myself. Like if she would even answer. It is just that they are so rude and we have never done anything to get that type of treatment, except to come in there and give her our business. I do not understand why you guys came to this town and tried to open a business when you obviously do not like St. James people. I keep hearing stories every day about things that are happening there. So I refuse to go where I am not wanted. Just don't treat these kids this way. All I want to know is what ever happened to her that she is so unhappy that she is rude and hateful to everyone she meets. I hope someday she will find some way to get over what ever is making her so hateful to others.
But those kids did not deserve to be treated that way and the customers don't either. I am not saying every customer is a charm but she doesn't give us a chance. I do feel sorry for them both, they are definetly every unhappy people.
