    The waitress had a very weird vibe. When she wasn't talking she was looking very coldly towards people. She wasn't rude or mean just standoffish and very short as if she was impatient. I'm guessing she's not much of a people person. She was pleasant enough though, she made sure to smile when she spoke. Other than that we enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious. I did have to return my bacon as it was a little too hard, I don't like extra crispy bacon it was really hard to chew.

    We would highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast if you are at The Cherokee Casino and Resort or in the area. The ambiance is nice, the restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly and attentive. The portions are large and the food is tasty. Reservations are recommended.

    It was so nice to have reservations because they are so busy. The guy that was cooking eggs and omelets was working so hard and did an excellent job. Our server was Angie and it was great to have her again she did an excellent job also. All the hostess were doing an awesome job getting people seated. The food was very good.

    My last visit prior to this was great and was pre pandemic. The cost has soared and the variety of food was drastically reduced. Unless there is change, I will not be returning.

    Promptly seated at our reserved time and they put us in the location we requested from our OpenTable reservation. Very friendly hostess and the gentleman that seated us. Thank you. Server was wonderful. Food was plentiful and delicious. We reserved at 11:30 and ordered from the "All Day Breakfast" section. This way, you can sleep a little longer and not have to get to breakfast by 11:00. :) :) Thank you Selu! Highly recommend.

    Have been here multiple times for the lunch/dinner menu and have enjoyed it. Went for the breakfast buffet priced at $25 per person. There wasn’t very much selection. The made-to-order omelettes/egg station was great. Everything else was mediocre. I don’t recommend the buffet. Next time if I eat breakfast there, I will order off the menu.

    Great food, service is a little slow but I think that's about normal these day. The prices are a little high in my opinion, especially for breakfast. If possible make a reservation because they are always busy and you may have to wait to eat.

    Looking forward to the bacon! It’s always so good. This time, not so much. When my order was served the bacon was almost raw so I sent it back. When our server brought another plate the bacon was black! Yuck! I went to the buffet, got a plate and picked 3 pieces of bacon cooked like it should have been. My husband ordered eggs Benedict. The eggs were hard like a boiled egg. He sent those back and the next ones were cooked perfectly (I think the first order had been sitting under a heat lamp that caused them to be overcooked). Our server was apparently having a bad day. She never once smiled or acted like she wanted to be there. Sorry, I don’t like to give bad comments on servers but she was really unpleasant. Overall, we will be back as this was an unusual occurrence. We always enjoy having breakfast here and the view from the stream side table is always a treat. (Adding photos of my burnt bacon & the pieces I got from the buffet)

    I got the breakfast buffet on Tuesday, August 30, and really enjoyed the omelet. The chef working there knew what she was doing, and it was delicious. The rest of the items in the buffet were ok. They did not have bacon the second time I went up. I was not a fan of the link sausage.
