  • 5 star review  I just want to say thank you personally to Rocky Top. They are beautiful people with such kind hearts. The fact that they came through for people who were struggling to feed their family during Covid 19 is amazing. I work with bridal parties in the beauty industry, but I was in the category of closed businesses for over 2 months. I will definitely recommend this company to brides that I meet or know. The food was great, and any company with that kind of genuine empathy deserves to be blessed. Thank you! 🙏🏽💜

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top Catering provided not only delicious food for our wedding last weekend (November 10, 2018) but also the best service. Before I describe the food, I must say that Vicki Tong is by far the best customer service rep that this company could possibly have. She made the entire experience so easy. She arranged for a food tasting, was able to keep me up to speed on what I owed and what the final invoice would be (most brides get blindsided by vendors) and just allowed me to be flexible with my choices all the way up to the week of the wedding. I could not have asked for a better person to be the liaison for myself and the Rocky Top Catering company. Now...the food....AMAZING! We went with one of their steak and chicken options. I had plenty of "Foodies" at my wedding who all shared the same sentiment that this was by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The mac n' cheese and the potatoes we are so yummy. They cooked their green beans to perfection. The steak was so juicy and the chicken was full of flavor. I cannot ask for a better experience with a catering company. I still receive compliments from my guests about how delicious the food was. I highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Long story short… go to a Rocky Top tasting, ask for Carol, book Rocky Top! People absolutely loved the food & let’s be honest… great food at a wedding is important. Guests complimented us on everything from the short ribs to the asparagus… I even loved the balsamic salad dressing. This is what Rocky Top does; provide delicious food from the main course all the way down to the butter for the bread.

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top is by far the best caterer in Raleigh. We recently used them at our wedding and they were all so kind and helpful, especially our AWESOME event director Vicki who was always available to answer my questions and fix any concerns I had. We had a few original ideas for our wedding that aren’t on the Rocky Top menu, including an incredible beef wellington entree and a crispy pork belly and mini waffle appetizer, and the staff was not only accommodating with our requests, but excited to try something different. They absolutely nailed it and exceeded all of our greatest expectations. I still have guests coming to me and raving about how it’s the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. I would 100% recommend Rocky Top for anyone looking for an amazing caterer!
