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.Sent on 11/09/2018
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!

Stress free wedding planning!!!
From beginning to end, Jerry and the staff at Parkway were absolutely amazing! They are a one stop shop for weddings and I couldn't be happier with the result! My husband and I had our wedding on July 27th and it was perfect. Everything was taken care of for us. We could've just gotten dressed and shown up! That is how much Jerry will do for you! The food was absolutely to die for! We opted for the buffet and the left overs we got to take home were insane!!! Our package included everything and we didn't have to worry about paying this vendor and that vendor. Jerry took care of it all. Cathy replied to us very quickly through Facebook and via text whenever we had a question. Jerry was always flexible when it came to meeting with us (we live about an hour and 20 minutes from the venue). Michelle.... oh how amazing she was. She helped calm down the bride (me) and made sure my husband and I were taken care of all night. I couldn't have done a better job with the wedding if I had done it by myself. This team is amazing to work with and I will recommend them to everyone and anyone!Sent on 08/07/2019

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!
