No doubt about it, Rocky Top Catering's food was fantastic! When our guests have talked to us about our wedding, they almost always mention how good the food was -- so a big win there! Also, the staff on the day off were so kind and wonderful! My only disappointment was the process leading up to the wedding. We initially started the process with Vicki, who was great and so fast to get us a quote after our initial call. But then we were passed off to working with Laura, and it would be days before getting a response to my email, or no response and I'd have to follow up. When we went in for the tasting, it felt like any adjustments we asked for were inconvenient or silly. Just not a great feeling. Also, we were not allowed to keep the leftover food, which was a disappointing surprise considering how much we were paying for food. Again, the food was phenomenal, and this could've just been a one-off experience we had during the planning process, but overall grateful for the service they provided the day of!

The wedding was great, service was good, but the one server I noticed that went above and beyond for my family was absolutely hysterical and very professional at the same time. This Rocky Top company is great. Hey Patricia, you made our night that much nicer, thank you.

Patricia from Rocky Top Catering was amazing!!! She was attentive, caring, thoughtful and taking care of everyone. Patricia is an asset and definitely considering for my next event. Make sure you have Patricia on your staff everyone will feel catered to. If Patricia is there she will make the evening a one of a kind experience.

Rocky Top was so easy to work with. They listened to our vision, dietary needs, and budget and guided us through the whole process. TIP: Invite a couple of friends or family members to your scheduled tasting. It was FUN! They took our feedback and made some adjustments to the menu. On the day of - they arrived on time, set up everything, and quickly got to work prepping food. Their servers were gracious and professional and took special care of us (the wedding couple). The guests gave us many compliments on the food! We totally recommend Rocky Top Catering for your wedding.

Karlee and Ashley were super responsive and helpful throughout the venue and event planning process! 1705 E is a great venue with even greater event planning staff.

Rocky Top provided catering and bar services for our wedding and it was truly spectacular from start to finish. Vicki (one of the most positive, vibrant, talented women I've met) kindly and patiently worked with us through our multiple covid-related postponements. On the day of the wedding, everything went as smooth as possible! From the passed hors d'oeuvres to the handheld desserts and everything in between was heavenly - we still have guests tell us it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Rocky Top even ensured that our guests with dietary restrictions were taken care of. Our signature cocktails were an absolute hit and the bar service was impeccable. The best part? The team made sure my husband and I got to enjoy every bit of it! I'm so thankful to Rocky Top for helping us make our wedding day the best day ever.
