The Oak Creek Health Department has closed Prime Table Family Restaurant after a customer complained about a cockroach found in soup.

The health department confirmed the existence of cockroaches and has suspended the restaurant's license for active vermin infestation, Health Officer Judi Price said.

"The establishment is working with the Health Department to remediate the situation," Price said.

A phone call to the business went unanswered late Tuesday afternoon.

Prime Table, 7864 S. Howell Ave., is located in the Oak Creek Plaza shopping center near the intersection of Drexel and Howell avenues.

We have been going here for 15+ years and have never had a problem! I can't believe some of the stuff I am reading! The food is great for the price you pay!! Always had the best deals in town unless of course you prefer greasy fast-food. I hope they can fix this issue and that they check the whole strip mall!!! Roaches don't just go to one place I wouldn't be surprised if they are all over the mall. If this place is as bad as people have been saying the health department would've done something about it years ago! But like I said I've been going for 15+ years without a problem!

I am a hard working server who desperately needs a job. I have been in the business 30+ yrs. Just curious if anyone has input on more resent changes. Have health issues improved, is the owner & staff a place I would be proud to work for & has the business been able to over-come or thrieve from negative comments? If anyone has honest input & not vicous rumors or lies, I would appreciate ur input. Thx much, Jamie K.

I have been going here for 4 years now and i have always had the best service. The owner is very nice and generous. The wait staff dress nicely and presentable. The servers are very patient and fast. The food is to do for, its always so yummy!! I have never had the issues above. Prime table has always appeared to be clean so i don't know what you people are talking about. The roaches could have came from another place in the strip mall. Even the cleanist place especially in the winter roaches and other bugs will be attracted to warm buildings. The restaurant is open for business and better than ever.

Angela, thx so much for a mature & helpful response to my questions. I do agree that the bug problem can def come from alternate sources. Iv been in the busn long enough to know that even the cleanest busn can deal w/many diff types of bugs & the source of the problem can even come from a single person coming into a rest who has a bug issue in their own home & all it takes is 1 to cause a huge prob. So b4 people do so much finger pointing, maybe they find out the facts. There r other rest in the strip mall. Thx for ur input & i think % will follow thru & apply for the server position. If all goes well, maybe I will have the pleasure of being ur server some day.
