    My eggs were undercooked, my bacon was overcooked, my biscuit was cold - the hashbrowns were nicely prepared. 3 of 4 were less than I expected. Refills on coffee were slow. Generally I am positive about this restaurant - today was not a good day. Yes, I most often would recommend the cafe - but not if today becomes the norm.

    I had breakfast there, as it is the only sit down place on the property for it. I had the eggs Benedict with hasbrown casserole. Maybe I missed it on the menu, but the EB came out with arugula on it, which I didn’t want. Server said that all their varieties of that come with it. The English muffin was barely toasted and seemed stale. The hasbrowns had an odd taste to them and were very spicy. The food and even the coffee just had an off taste to everything.

    While visiting Harrah's Cherokee we ate 3 times at Selu. All waitresses and waiters were excellent. On Tues Morning Aug 9, we were seated in a booth, the booth next to us had 4 men which were very loud and noisy. I had to ask our waiter if it was alright to change to a table away from the men because they were so obnoxious. Management should have asked them to quiet down, this was about 0900a.m. Also Tim, and Daniel are wonderful servers attentive and very friendly. My husband ordered oatmeal on two days and would have like to have raisins, with his oatmeal for some reason raisins were not available, next time I'll bring little boxes of raisins to have for his oatmeal, why didn't kitchen have raisins? Also, the buffet at $25.00 p.p. is a little steep for our taste, we ordered off menu. A small glass of juice is high too at $3.50 per glass. Since Selu is really the only sit down restaurant for breakfast it would be nice if the new Ramsey court would have more of a selection for breakfast, I recommend only because it is the only restaurant available.

    Excellent food and service. The family loved it. A bit pricey since I don’t eat much. I got the breakfast buffet, but could only handle one plate. But still a great experience.

    Standard breakfast bar, full breakfast menu. Prices typical of a casino resort. Restaurant is understaffed creating long wait lines for seating and check out. Surprisingly positive interaction with every staff member given how pressed they are to do their jobs while understaffed - hostess, waiters/waitresses/buffet chef and check out personnel were all extremely pleasant and are to be commended for their efforts.

    Everything was wonderful. The noise level received low points only because of a small child vocalizing her desires throughout the meal. Father did finally sit her on his lap, and for 2 minutes, it did help. I could not understand why a parent would not take the child out to the hallway and have a little talk with her. This situation made the meal a little less appetizing.

    While staying at Harrah's we made Selu Garden our go to place for breakfast. It was served Hot and Delicious. We ordered from the menu. We did not experience the Breakfast Bar. The serving portions were more than adequate. The taste was excellent and the cost was quite reasonable. We will go back. Don't forget to set your reservation time to avoid long wait. Relax and enjoy.

    It was a bit of a miss this time. Service was slow, food was wrong, and generally didn't seem to go well. As always everyone was nice, and having a reservation took away the wait time. I come fairly frequently, and I'm sure next time will go better.

    Needed a light lunch to not ruin dinner. Wife had the artichoke and spinach dip which she raved over. Waiter recommended the hamburger for me and it was surprisingly delicious. Pepper jack cheese with a nice char it was an excellent steakhouse quality burger. Will eat again next time Im in town.
