    Amazing Food

    We recently used Rocky Top Catering for our 150 guest wedding. We had so many compliments on the food and the desserts! We loved how large their menu was when looking for options and we appreciated all the thought and effort that Jeff put into looking at our choices and coming up with the best choices to sample. We so appreciated getting leftovers to take home and enjoy the day after the wedding! Everything is so delicious here!

    Catering - Rocky Top

    Our menu for my daughter's wedding was wonderful! Rocky Top Catering offers a wide variety of foods to choose from. Jess Besselman was great to work with. He is very detailed. All of the wait staff were professional and friendly.
