  • 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!

  • 5 star review  We cannot say enough wonderful things about how EXCELLENT Rocky Top and especially, Jeff Besselman, are. We chose Rocky Top before we even finalized our venue because we knew Rocky Top had top-notch food and an equally excellent reputation, but they KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK for our wedding. Our entire experience from moment one was outstanding. Jeff spent a significant amount of time getting to know us in our consult to make sure that our catering selections matched both our personalities as well as the type of experience we wanted to give our guests. He was always available by phone or email and was super patient with our multiple menu revisions. Our guests kept coming up to us during the reception to tell us how amazing the food was and how delicious the cocktails were. They are STILL talking about it two weeks later! The servers who personally attended to us during the reception were always there to make sure we had something to eat, and a drink in our hand. Rocky Top and Jeff went above and beyond to make sure our day was incredible and they far exceeded our expectations. We would give them TEN stars if we could!!

  • 5 star review  Wow, what a pleasant experience. We had our Daughter's wedding and the Menu was a combination of American & Indian Fusion. I was very skeptical about they handling the Indian dishes and was constantly worried & arguing with my daughter about talk them in to hiring Indian Chef. We had few rounds of tasting and was not much impressed so suggested few things and asked them to go and eat at our favorite Indian Restaurants in the area and boy, what they did was simply amazing. The Chef Boe and his team along with Vicki did a great job with the food served. For other events before the wedding, we had Indian food catered by a leading Indian Restaurant but many guests admitted that the food served by Rocky Top was a better.

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top catered our wedding, they were nothing short of excellent. To this day I have yet to find better tasting food with such a variety of dishes from a catering company. Their food is better then most restaurants in Raleigh. Highly recommend!
