    I usually love Selu garden breakfast but they changed a lot of things. You can no longer get a la carte items you must order full entree. Can’t get just eggs. Also they changed their coffee brand and it’s horrible. I used to love their coffee. Coffee was very bitter. I asked why changes and no one knew why. So I had to pay for breakfast just to get eggs. Won’t go back sadly.

    The buffet looked basic for 25 a person so we ordered off menu. I ordered eggs over easy, bacon, English muffin, hash brown casserole. The bacon wasn’t fresh made been cooked ahead of time, my muffin was burnt, but my eggs were ok and casserole too cheesy I didn’t care for. Hubby they wouldn’t let substitute grits for hash browns on corn beef order so he ordered a weird way. The hash browns came cold and burnt had to send back so did guy table sitting next to us kind of was a funny we laughed together guess they came from same bad batch I guess he sent his back too. Overall it was an overpriced not so great basic breakfast at $39 plus tip. Would be better off going to Waffle House honestly for better quality and price. Not impressed probably will not do again if we stay again. Was a weekday too and at 10am.

    Popular restaurant so be sure to make reservation weeks in advance. The breakfast buffet offering are much less than before, and pricey. We opted to order items from the menu and found our dishes to be delicious and generous in portion. Service was friendly and attentive.

    We have had breakfast at Selu Gardens many times over the years and we have always had good food and very good, friendly service! We were satisfied with our meal but the service, this visit, not so much! When seated, it took about 10 minutes before we were approached for our order! I must say that the friendliness, great in the past, was not exhibited this visit! The server seemed almost sullen and indifferent. We did get the feeling that the server didn’t want to be there that morning!

    Everything about this visit was fine. I would definitely go back again. The atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. The food arrived rather quickly and everything tasted good. Gifts and treats are available for purchase on the way out. They seated us promptly at our reserved time and that is appreciated.

    Only issue was at the beginning. They sat us down at a booth and no one ever came over to us to take a drink order or anything. After 10-15 and seeing someone else being taken care of that was seated way after us, I decided to go ask the hostess who was supposed to be our server because no one had come around to us. This wasn’t a busy time whatsoever, either. They decided to seat us in a different section. I don’t remember our server’s name but at the beginning she was kinda serious and quiet but then ended up being an excellent and friendly server.
