waitress was lazy and did not give us napkins or a straw for my two year old.. her cup was foam with the plastic lid so you require straws. Natasha is a good waitress who works there, we just didnt get her this time.

Service has been fast and good. We have enjoyed the liver and onion, chicken fry steak and normally specials. We always try to stop by once every month. Good selection of home made pies.
