We'd been driving all day, and our hotel recommended Selena's. The food was wonderful, the service great, and at reasonable prices. I had pasta and my husband had their Cajun. We were both very pleased with our choices.

Tried brunch on Sunday, seemed like they had the parking lot in better shape than restaurant. Poor service (didn't get a coffee refill until we got the bill). Hashbrowns casserole dominated with sour cream.
