About Parkway Banquets

Parkway Banquets is a waterside banquet hall located in Ingleside, Illinois. It boasts interiors that are fitting of such a wonderful occasion as well as outdoor surroundings that complement the romantic day. Couples can celebrate both their ceremony and reception here, making it a versatile and accommodating place for their milestone moment.

Facilities and Capacity

Situated along the edge of a nearby lake, this elegant property provides somewhere secluded and bathed in nature for couples and their guests to enjoy. For the ceremony, the couple and their nearest and dearest can gather in a covered tented area. Here, white chairs can be arranged for everyone to sit and watch as the couple says ‘I do’ and exchanges rings. Ideally, the sides of this space can be left open so that a light breeze can drift through on warm summer afternoons. It can also be decorated accordingly with floral arrangements and colorful bows. After the iconic moment has been sealed, the happy pair and everybody else can make their way inside to begin the reception festivities.

Chiavari-style chairs arranged at banquet-style and round tables offer an inviting place for the all-important meal. Dozens of your guests can enjoy a sit-down meal here. With large windows letting in ample light and affording views of the waterway, it exudes a relaxing ambiance. As the evening moves on and the festivities continue, the lit-up dance floor can be populated as moves are busted out. Outside, too, throughout the course of the day, photo opportunities can be taken advantage of with nature offering a multitude of splendid backdrops.

Services Offered

The way this venue marries splendid design with nature makes it a tremendous place to host a wedding. A number of services help add to its already glittering appeal, such as an event planner, get-ready rooms, the fact that is is pet-friendly, availability of event rentals as well as the complimentary WiFi. They are more than happy to recommend certain companies to help the couple’s vision come to life. These include photographers, florists, cake makers, and more. To boost the venue’s appeal, a photo booth can also be made available.

Cuisine

The venue can provide onsite catering, too. Offering a variety of catering packages (Prestige, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Ultimate), they can accommodate both low-key and intimate weddings. With hors d’oeuvres, entrees, desserts, snacks, and more, they serve an array of delicious meals. To complement the culinary delights available here, bar service is also available.

    Highly recommend

    Our wedding was Friday September 6th 2019. Jerry, Cathy, Michelle and the crew were wonderful to work with. Everything looked beautiful. We didn’t have to worry about decor, they have a storage closet full of centerpieces. So much food and we got to take the leftovers home. Thankyou for helping us host our friends and family. I doubt you can find another venue that provides everything for a great price and treats you like family!

    As a wedding officiant I always look forward to ceremonies at Parkway by the Lake. It's a great ceremony site and banquet hall. This budget friendly location has everything you'll need for your big day; wedding chapel set up, bridal suite, scenic lakeside locale, bar service, and much more.

    We absolutely love working with the entire staff at Parkway Banquets And Catering. The service, food and attention to details is as meticulous as mine and would highly recommend them.

  • Eminjayin Productions

    We have worked with Jerry on a number of wedding receptions as have served the same bridal couples. Jerry's attention to detail to ensure a smooth wedding for couples is phenomenal! He has all bases covered! He is easy to work with, accomodating and can relieve strress for brides who really have no idea of how the day should be run. His banquet facility is always clean and inviting, the buffet style food delicious and real (ie. ham is off the bone, not frozen thin strips, prime rib cut right off the bone). The newly created bride room is ablsolutely adorable and a serene sanctuary for a bride who just needs a few minutes alone. I always know that if we are heading to Parway Banquets, the wedding/reception will be a smooth one!
