    Everything was excellent. The only surprise was the cost of two breakfast buffets. Personally I think a basic buffet breakfast that includes eggs bacon and a gravy biscuit and costs $25 is a little overboard. Probably won’t have the buffet or maybe even eat there. Just too expensive. Still service, food quality and cleanliness was excellent.

    Belgian Waffle was delicious. Wonderful malt flavor, crispy and light. Bacon was crispy and had nice smoky taste. Hubby had French toast and said it was delicious, and presentation was beautiful. We would have taken pics, but once we had our first bite, we devoured it all before we knew it! Meisha, our server, was seasoned, attentive, helpful, and personable.

    The omelette chef was great, he had no help and was trying to keep the food bar stocked and cook at the same time. A manager came by and we told him the chef, Myles, needed some help. Finally someone came after he had everything stocked-up. Way too much work for someone trying to cook. There were people walking away because of no food on hot bar. Our server was very slow refilling drinks, but food was good.

    Great traditional breakfast fare with southern offerings! I got the fried chicken thigh on a biscuit with gravy. So delicious, with a side of fruit! Service and food is consistently great! It would be nice if they were open for dinner too.

    The food and service at Selu Garden is always consistently good! I had the breakfast special: fried chicken thigh on a biscuit with gravy and topped with an egg. I appreciate that they offer fresh fruit as a side item (they also have hash browns and grits)! When we know that we will be in the area, we always make breakfast reservations at the Selu Garden. We also had breakfast here yesterday. It would be great if they were also open for dinner.

    First we had to walk about a half mile from our room to this restaurant. I am serious. The walk to the casino is at least 1/4 mile. This place is huge. They need shottles. The food was expensive and terrible. Eat out somewhere.

    Definitely need a reservation on a weekend morning. We were seated right away. I miss the skillet breakfasts that used to me on the menu. The breakfast casserole tasted different this time- please go back to original recipe. Breakfast burrito and Eggs Benedict were delicious. Server was good about refilling our coffees and waters. It took a little time to get our food, but I understand that everyone is short staffed these days. Overall it was a good experience.

    Our meal was perfect. Hubby got the breakfast that included eggs, bacon, sausage, grits and pancakes. Perfection. I got the omelet that included ham, bacon and sausage. I got them to leave off the bacon and sausage. It was wonderful. I had asked for a booth overlooking the water and got it. Great restaurant. Great experience, as always.

    Only complaint I have is the app. It lists a number that is disconnected and is not user friendly. There are opportunities to improve this. The restaurant and staff deserve this type of support. The food was very good.

    Had the buffet. Very overpriced($20.99) for the quality of food. Eggs were great because they were cooked while you waiting. Waffle were very hard even after letting syrup(Luke warm) soak in. Biscuits not warm. Grits were good. Link sausage ok but a little tough. Overall I felt the steam tables weren’t keeping food hot enough.

    WARNING! DO NOT ORDER THE 20.99 BUFFET. Stale food service pre cooked sausage and bacon, frozen biscuits, supermarket grade muffins and stalled banana bread. Big wait for ANY kind of eggs. Premade watery sausage gravy with no sausage, pre made potatoes cold so bad. If you do go to this place order off the menu. Better free breakfast at the Holiday Inn.

    We were not greeted by our server for at least 15 minutes, even though he walked past the table numerous times. We finally stopped a hostess and asked if we could just go to the buffet since we were planning to have the buffet anyway. She said that would be fine and took our drink orders. Our server came to the table about 10 minutes after we had sat down with our food and did apologize for not ever coming to our table. He didn't offer a reason as to why. As someone who had worked in hospitality, it was very frustrating to feel ignored. His taking a quick second to acknowledge us, even just to say he was busy and would be back soon, would have resulted in a far better experience. With that being said, the food was good and the restaurant is beautiful.

    Other than confusion with checking in… it was good. Seemed to be a manager deciding to question a hostess while I stood there & waited. Although the hostess seemed to be handling things just fine. Server Emily was good! Tuna melt was good choice.
