Facilities and Capacity
Situated along the edge of beautiful Long Lake, this elegant property provides elegance secluded and bathed in nature for couples and their guests to enjoy. For the ceremony, the couple and their friends and family will gather in the only outdoor, covered tented area in the area - rain or shine! Here, white chairs are arranged for everyone to sit and watch as the couple says ‘I do’ and exchanges rings.
A light breeze drifts through on warm summer afternoons, and on a chilly day, the area can be heated and enclosed from wind or rain. Parkway Banquets will decorate the ceremony to match the couple's chosen decor. After the iconic moment has been sealed, the happy couple and their guests will make their way directly inside to the incredble reception area overlooking the lakefront.
With large windows letting in ample light and affording views of the waterway, the reception area exudes a relaxing ambiance. As the evening moves on and the festivities continue, the lit-up dance floor gets the party rockin'! Most common comment by guests" "This is the BEST wedding I have ever been to!!!"

Megan · Married on 10/25/2019
We recently had our wedding here (October 25th, 2019) and were absolutely thrilled with everything! The team at Parkway made sure that every single detail was perfectly set up just the way we pictured it. It was amazing to have the option to have all of the vendors taken care of through Parkway- it was a huge relief to me as a bride to not have to worry about anything except showing up on time! We were very confident that everything would go on just as planned. Jerry and his team are the best and really treat you like family from the moment you walk through the door. Thank you for the amazing experience! 🥰🖤💙Sent on 03/21/2020

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.
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!
