We used Rocky Top for our June 2024 wedding and were super impressed! Rocky Top is the partner food vendor for our venue and it is no wonder why. We had an awesome experience with our catering tasting as well as our day-of experience. For passed appetizers we enjoyed the shrimp and grits shooter, chicken and waffles, bruschetta, and pepper steak bruschetta. For entrees we had sundried tomato and ricotta stuffed chicken breast and slow braised beef short ribs. Cheesecake for dessert. All were exceptional! Not only was the food delicious, but the wait staff was very kind, personable, and professional. I am so happy we were able to have Rocky Top as a part of our big day!

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!
