    Excellent food!

    The food from Rocky Top was a hit! People kept raving about how great it was and I was able to enjoy it day of as well. Working with Jeff was so easy and he suggested our menu, which ended up being excellent. Leading up to the event we made some changes, and Jeff was so accommodating. I was also very concerned about different dietary restrictions that guests (and myself) had and Jeff helped me work around them so I was confident those folks would enjoy the food as well. I would work with them again and suggest you hire them today!

    Outstanding!

    Rocky Top provided outstanding food for our daughter鈥檚 Rose Hill Estates wedding! The pre-ceremony food was delicious! Prompt delivery and almost too lovely to eat! Amazing chicken salad! The cheese tray was so tasty! The cocktail choices were perfect! Rocky Top servers did an excellent job of circulating through the guest and even provided for the wedding party as post ceremony pictures were being taken. The dinner was spectacular! Guest said they could have made a meal of just green beans and mashed potatoes鈥t was that good! Oh my, the honey brined chicken with the slaw and corn!!!! Prime rib!!!! Wonderful experience!

    Beyond incredible!!

    If you want food and service that will leave your guests gushing about it for weeks, if not months, after your wedding, Rocky Top Catering takes the number one spot. We literally have asked Rocky Top if they have a restaurant that we can eat at regularly just so that we can enjoy the food again! Vicki, our catering manager, was an absolute all-star when it came to walking us through the process and making sure everything was exactly to our liking.聽聽Our tasting included literally everything that was served at our wedding (which was a lot), and dear lord, I think they had to drag us out of their office because we couldn't stop eating such delicious food.聽聽If you're reading this Vicki, we cannot get over how thoughtful, professional and incredible you are! Our experience with Vicki and Rocky Top Catering was beyond impeccable, our guests continue to rave about how amazing the food and service was!聽聽From carefully thought out details pertaining to meals choices and providing direction on meal delivery, down to the smaller specifics like how many appetizers to have, the results were mind blowing and displayed the highest level of quality, attention to detail, and personalization that anyone could ever ask for.聽聽We joke about renewing our vows as soon as possible just so we can hire Rocky Top Catering again (actually, we seriously is are not joking).聽聽Thank you for such a wonderful unforgettable experience!!
