Rocky Top has a long-standing tradition of providing the highest quality food catering in the area, and we deliver the same top-notch service with our bar services.

Whether you prefer something simple like beer and wine, or want something special like themed cocktails, we make the process easy, fun and delicious.

Our cocktails are crafted with the same attention to detail as our food, with seasonal offerings and fresh ingredients that complement any event.


Every event starts with a good beverage. Make your guests’ first impression the best. We can help you create a bar package perfect for your event, including beer, wine, top-shelf liquors and specialty cocktails. We also offer a great selection of non-alcoholic beverages to complete your menu.

Serving alcohol at an event is a serious responsibility, and Rocky Top Bar Services recognizes this fact.

We have extensive experience in the permitting process and facilitate that procedure so that your event runs smoothly. When paired with our catering, our servers can seamlessly serve both food and alcoholic beverages to your guests, unlike what happens if you have different caterers and beverage providers at the same event.


Rocky Top works with dozens of special event venues throughout Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Wake Forest, Cary and beyond.

We can also provide bar services at companies, private residences, neighborhood get-togethers and family reunions — wherever you are, we come to you. Rocky Top Bar Services can be combined with our catering offerings, or we can simply provide beverage service if that is what you need.

Rocky Top was amazing to work with!! They made the whole process super easy. They have a wide variety of delicious food including vegan options. There was even a box of extra entrees and desserts packed up for my husband and I to take with us after the reception. We thought that was such a nice touch! Everything was so perfect and delicious. We really couldn’t have asked for a better catering company!

Rocky Top catered our December 2023 wedding at The Meadows and overall had a great experience! They fit our budget and were very organized and flexible in making the tasting, planning, and day-of process easy and smooth. We loved their uniquely NC options like barbecue, Cheerwine chicken, mac & cheese, and pimento cheese arancini, which felt true to the food we grew up on and fun to provide for guests from out of town. One guest said it was "the best wedding mac of all time." We thought the food was solid and well executed for feeding 100+ guests with really lovely staff and service. One thing I would recommend for buffet-style dining is requesting to utilize both sides of the buffet if your space allows so that your guests get their food efficiently. Definitely recommend them for weddings and other large events for a reliable caterer with great options, food, and service!

We attended the 2023/24 Rocky Top Catering New Year’s Eve Gala at the Raleigh Museum of Natural Sciences and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The food was delicious, the drinks were fun and abundant and the DJs and overall atmosphere were great! This was our first year attending the event and we are already planning on returning next year. The staff was gracious and did everything they could to ensure everyone had a great time! Yes, some of the lines for food were a bit long but that is to be expected with this type of event and they moved surprisingly quickly. We never had to wait at the bar for a drink. Oh, and the hot dogs at midnight were awesome. We highly recommend the event and Rocky Top Catering! 🥂👏🏼🎉👍🏻


Let’s make your vision a reality.
