As mother of the bride, I can say the staff of Parkway made planning this wedding a breeze. The choices were outstanding for decorations, photography, music and food. We live out of the area and had no difficulty with getting answers to our questions. We felt right at home in this beautiful venue. Parkway staff made every effort to make sure all our needs were met and we were satisfied. The whole event went off with out a single hitch. Kuddos to the whole staff. I would recommend Parkway for any event and not hesitate to return when given the chance.Sent on 09/12/2018

Fairytale reception because they really care
Jerry and his staff are the epitome of professionalism! We worried about nothing because they made sure we had no cause to. Everything from the ceremony through to the sweets table was outstanding. It was truly fairytale like with the beautifully decorated to the views of the serene lake.Sent on 10/31/2018
We used them 13 years ago for our anniversary party and knew we could trust and rely on Parkway to make it perfect and they did!

Wedding of my dreams
There aren't enough words in the world to explain how awesome Parkway Banquets is. We met Jerry after seeing a handful of halls and feeling stressed. It is hard now a days to find a hall for a decent price with everything you need included without feel ripped off. We loved his honesty and realness he brought to the table. He had the bells and whistle without charging a fortune. He made the process of finding a banquet all very calming. He works very hard to making sure you get what you want and really makes you feel like you matter.
I am a very OCD gal and Jerry did his best to make me calm throughout the whole process. He gave us the opportunity to get updates on how the construction was coming along and after months of waiting it turned out to be beautiful. The Salon is the perfect place for a big wedding.
On the day of our wedding, Jerry and his team were outstanding. Stephanie and Sondra were my life savers and helped me with the last minute things I needed done. They made sure that everything I wanted and needed were taken care of. The decorations were amazing, the ceremony was beautiful, the food was delicious, and reception was so much more. If you are looking for an amazing hall that doesn't charge you a fee for cake cutting, champagne toast, with amazing food and the best time of your life you have found your place. Parkway Banquets is the best place for a wedding!

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!
