Not a huge selection of items, but the food on offer was tasty and fresh. They had a nice selection of desserts including sugar-free items.

I have eaten at this establishment for at least 10 times in the past 2 years and enjoyed most of the meals such as Sunday brunch, All You can eat Lobster, dinner, Mother's Day Brunch and weekday lunch. I noticed that whenever I go there with a group of more than 6 people and get charged 18% gratuity, the server usually ignore us after bringing us the drinks. Last Saturday the server did not refill our drinks not even once and we didn't see her for like an hour and half. I would give this place a 5 star if the service is a little better because 18% gratuity is a lot for a buffet.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Talking Stick and visited the buffet on Friday and Saturday night. The wait for Friday night was very little, but was about 1/2 hour on Saturday night. The service (wait staff) is not very attentive. That is my only complaint. The food and variety is very good. The Kobe beef is great as is shrimp and seafood. On Friday night we noticed the crab legs and lobster were a bit on the dry side compared to Saturday night. Overall would go again.

Nice happy hour prices for drinks. The food didn't have any flavor and most of the selections that were supposed to be 'hot' were not more than lukewarm. The mushroom ravioli was the only highlight there for me.
