Creole Bread Pudding
Our version of this Kentucky favorite served with warm Bourbon Brandy sauce.
Lightly breaded, crisp, and golden.
We took some out of town family members that were visiting fir Derby weekend. I will start off with, we love Selena’s, and I have never had a bad meal until this day, I ordered the Chicken piccata and it was very bland. And also the garlic toast for oysters appetizer was cold. Outside of that, everything was great! We did eat outside, nice afternoon for outdoor dining.
Get the hash brown casserole. You won't be sad you did.
Outdoor seating at Selena's is always the best! This is your go-to for a new tucked away spot with great food - and don't leave without trying the bread pudding.
Selena’s is the best in town!
People, staff, atmosphere, food, drinks, service, owners!
Way to go!
Selena's is always wonderful! My favorite is eating outside, but it was raining on my last visit and we had a very nice quiet table indoors, excellent service and the food, as always,
Our server was AMAZING!! I couldn't decide what to have for dinner and put it all into his hands....he surprised me and it was incredible!
Our waiter Zack was outstanding. He made a suggestion for my dinner that I could enjoy 2 items by having an appetizers of shrimp & grits and a bowl of shrimp & crawfish etouffee.
I did not expect our meal to cost over $100. Have had similar, just as good and even better meals for less at several restaurants in Louisville.
Enjoyed the brunch as usual. Good food for the value.
One of my favorite spots for Brunch/Lunch/Dinner. Food is always tasty and service is tops.
Great service, food, and ambiance. Will go there again soon.
Fantastic as always!
Great food and service.
Food is always good. Being short staffed left the service element a little lacking. Ready to get past pandemic status
Always love selenas! Great calamari for an appetizer and pasta special was great!
Brunch was fantastic
Fantast owner,service,food and ambiance
We invited new neighbors to join us for dinner; turns out it was their anniversary!
Our server was very good, very attentive. The food was delicious. The fish of the day was excellent.
Excellent food and service, tough parking, trains across the street.
We had reservations for 4 celebrating 3 birthdays. Our guest got there at 7:15 sharp waited 10-15 minutes no one ever came to the table. We got there and still no one waited on us. We had to grab a waiter that was waiting on the other side of the room. The service is usually pretty good, that night it was terrible.
We eat here at least 3 time a month maybe more!! Love it !!
Great little spot good food nice location for a dinner date
Delicious! Love their bacon and biscuits & gravy!
It was a cool rainy day so we had to dine inside. Totally different experience from the garden😢. Waiter was friendly and prompt. However, he didn’t advise that the steak special was a surf and turf. Only mentioned the ribeye. Also, we would have enjoyed bread or rolls. I thought maybe it was no longer provided but toward the end of our meal, I overheard another waitress offering bread. Calamari was delicious as usual. My daughter’s stuffed shrimp and my husbands shrimp pasta were excellent. Two of us had the chicken parmigiana. It was good but needed more sauce. Will definitely visit again as Selena’s is a favorite.
Great Brunch place!!
We ate early 4:45, great service. We were indoors but the outside dining looked inviting too. Always good Cajun food, they'll tone down the spices if you ask. Domestic $2.50 other beers $6.00. Look for them on Groupon.
I was there for a business lunch. The outdoor seating was very comfortable and eye appealing. The food was delicious and the service was good as well. Definitely will return!
The only things that worked at Selena's last Wednesday night was that we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation and our server was excellent. The noise in the entire place was deafening; none of us in our party could understand nor hear the server's description of the specials; the tables on either side of us were clearly not socially distanced; and the food was AWFUL (stuffed shrimp overcooked and couldn't find a shrimp in the breading, etc.) It was overpriced and absolutely not worth it. We will not be returning and forwarded our displeasure to the two vintage car clubs that we belong to - don't even think about having a dinner as a club here.
The fried brussels sprouts were amazing and Brian provided great service!
Have eaten at Selena’s many times and always a favorite. Had never gone for buffet at Selena’s. So many choices which made it wonderful and well worth the price.
It's ALWAYS a great experience here! We're long time customers who'd hoped to sit out on the patio but Mother Nature said it was "too cold" for me...we ate inside at a nice booth.
THANKS ONCE AGAIN!
Selena's menu is priced above what we pay for a really nice dish at Varanese in Louisville. The quality of the food we ordered was mediocre at best. Not bad but definitely not on par with some of the best in Louisville. For the money, I would go elsewhere until someone in our party requests Selena's.
Great place to get some really good News Orleans food. I couldn't decide what to get... It, all sounded great. I got the New Orleans Medley it was awesome. We will definitely be back!
I had the grilled salmon on top of the 1979 salad and it was delicious. I also got a bowl of the gumbo to go so I could have it for lunch the next day. It was very good too. My friend’s order however wasn’t right and the server never came back to our table to check on us. We had to flag down another server to send her back to us.
Love the outdoor seating. The trains do create a noise issue. We had 3 go by during our dinner, but it is hard to blame Selena’s. We look forward to our next visit.
Each experience has been great. That’s why we continue to return!
Disappointed in our night out...didnt order alcohol and waitress seemed to forget us ...no bread til our dinner was finished
Bad service, she was ready to leave because she had to come back in a hour to do a double shift!
