    Our server was kind just not super attentive or helpful. No almond milk or soy milk for dairy substitute which was surprising. Told it was due to a shortage? My husband had to go out of the restaurant to the Starbucks and get some for me. Food was good. I have a dairy allergy and was not confident that server took it seriously.

    We have breakfast here each time we stay at Harrahs in Cherokee. It’s always good except for this time the steak was not very well prepared. Other than that the service is wonderful and the selections are great. I have to try the lunch next time.

    We ordered the breakfast buffet. It was great getting to watch the chef make our made to order omelets. Everything was hot and fresh. They had fruit or yogurt cups on the bar. We chose the fruit and it was very good.

    Nice morning breakfast, good menu selections. We all enjoyed our meals, food quality was good, nice presentation, and the server was very polite and attentive. Weekday morning, and very quiet. (Did not do buffet, we are not buffet people.)

    This a great place to have breakfast. The buffet bar is great for omelets and all the fixings. I would suggest making reservations. With reservations you are promptly seated. Otherwise when busy you may have a wait time to be seated.

    Had an enjoyable breakfast before we went home on Sunday. I usually plan ahead and make a reservation - the walk in waiting can be long sometimes. The hosts were nice and our server was very good. Food was good too. We had a nice booth overlooking the river. If you are at the hotel, you should definitely go to Selu Garden Cafe for breakfast at least once.

    No longer had scrambled eggs in the buffet. I now had to wait in the same line as people ordering their omelettes to get my simple scrambled eggs! I could have been eating but I was still waiting in line.
