Excellent service, venue, food - very reasonable price!
Rockwoods handled my daughter's wedding reception beautifully! Every interaction with staff leading up to the event was very pleasant, and on the big day they took care of everything so we had to worry about nothing! Many guests commented on the delicious food and I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. Their prices are very reasonable, especially for all the personal attention you get. Fantastic!Sent on 01/26/2020

A Beautiful September Wedding
Rockwood made what should have been a very stressful and detailed event very easy and without any problems. I wanted our wedding to be a simple, but elegant gathering where our friends and family could come and be part of our special day.Sent on 09/25/2020
We were able to celebrate and could not have asked for better service. From the appetizers, to elegant decorations to the officiant who was able to capture who my husband and I are to perform a beautiful ceremony.
When I had needed Rockwood to be nimble at the last minute, folding in a special prayer at my request a day before our ceremony, they were able to accommodate this beautifully.
After the ceremony and dinner, the staff at Rockwood continued to work hard throughout the evening to provide ongoing service to our guests, so that we had to worry about nothing. Our friends and relatives had a wonderful time and it was one of the most stress free evenings I have ever had.
Thank you Rockwood. I would recommend you over and over and over again.
Rockwoods's reply:It was such a pleasure to work with you both! You make a stunning couple and it was an honor to host you for your special day.

I have worked with Rockwoods as a bride myself and also with Katie professionally. I have always been pleased with their services and their timely response.
Professional, friendly, and ready to do anything they can to make your day everything you dreamed it to be. My husband and I hosted our rehearsal dinner at Rockwoods Banquet Center and I was so thankful for a relaxed and intimate celebration with those standing by our side the next day!
This place is a fabulous venue. The food and service is great. Well worth checking out. Kathy
