Everything that Rocky Top was fantastic! Kevin and Elizabeth helped us through the process of planning and executing the wedding of our dreams! The food was fantastic- our guests are still raving about the short ribs and sweet potatoes. The servers were super sweet and helpful with all of the little details of our day. They had our plates made and at our tables just as we finished our first dance. We didn't have to waste any time. The team helped with the breakdown of the event so smoothly too! We only had an hour after the event was over to clean up and it was done in less time. Thank you so much!
Our guests are STILL raving about the quality of the food and the professionalism and kindness shown by the staff. The food was as good as it would have been if one small plate was made by hand for each of us. The chicken and waffle passed appetizers were mouth watering and the desserts were out of this world! Pair that with the most professional, clean and courteous staff you can imagine and you have a glimpse into our experience with Rocky Top Catering. They were early, stayed until the job was done and even helped corral all of our stuff which helped with easy breakdown the next day.
The sweetest touch came after the wedding. Cute to-go boxes of food were sent to our hotel room with nice notes of congrats and extra forks for dessert in bed. Thank you so much for an amazing night to remember!
We booked 1705 Prime for our reception venue for our wedding last weekend! The venue space is beautiful, the food was excellent, and the separate bar wowed the guests! The staff was friendly and welcoming to my many questions during the wedding planning process! We couldn't of asked for a better venue!
Love Jenn! She's so helpful and the food is wonderful!!!
Our daughter's wedding reception venue was at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
Rocky Top did an outstanding job with the set-up and menu. Everyone at the reception raved for days about the food and it's presentation. It was everything we wanted and much more! Our crowd had many different food allergies and Rocky Top went over and beyond to address each one. We worked mainly with Kaitlin, who did an outstanding job. She is professional and great with details. She is very pleasant to work with and is passionate about her work.
Best food you will ever have. The staff is awesome. They made so many adjustments for food allergies for my family that everyone had a safe meal which was comforting to me. I would love for them to cook for me every night.
This was by far the best service we have had and our friends have had at a wedding. The food was outstanding and the service was perfect. All our guest commented on theirsefvice to please all guest. We would recommend rocky top to any and everybody. The appetizers were out of this world. Our guest from Boston and up north said the shrimp and grits were perfect.
Elizabeth and her staff at Rocky Top did a fantastic job. I didn't have a menu in mind, and Elizabeth created the perfect menu for my 3:00 reception. They worked with my budget and venue, and created a memorable meal for my guests. I'm still hearing about the food a month later! The day-of service was also great as I didn't have to worry about anything.
PS: The mashed potato bar, salad jars, and sliders seemed to be everyone's...
We worked with Elizabeth at Rocky Top the whole planning of our catering for our wedding. She and her staff were great! We must have met with her half a dozen times before we decided on a menu and structure that worked for us. She was patient and attentive the whole time. She would even follow up with me when she hadn't heard back in a while and made everything was perfect for the big day. The food was great and the wait staff was awesome. Everyone was super friendly and helpful, everyone's glasses stayed full and everyone had a smile on their faces. so glad to have gone with this vendor. You can tell they have done this before and are great at what they do. They are true professionals.
Kevin was amazing! He was super responsive and willing to work within our budget and within our vision. Everyone has raved about his attentiveness at the event, the small details they assisted with and the great food! From the very beginning I was always glad I choose them for the space and for the catering.
I would highly recommend Rocky Top Hospitality to anyone who is looking for a caterer that goes above and beyond to ensure that your experience is one of the best. From the planning process to the day of the event, Rocky Top and their staff were attentive, professional, and courteous. Their catering menu provides a broad range of options in packages that allow it to be customized to your specific event - whether it's butler passed h'ordeuvres, stations, or a full sit down meal. I cannot express how amazing our experience was. Additionally, their catering staff paid special attention the day of our wedding to ensure that my husband and I were taken care of. Plus the food is absolutely amazing. In fact, most of our wedding guests have called to rave about the food and how amazing it is! You cannot go wrong with Rocky Top!
Elizabeth and her team were a dream to work with! They insured our reception went off without a hitch! The food was amazing and they truly thought of everything! I would 100% hire them again and recommend them to anyone!!!!!
The service was amazing! Jenn was incredibly responsive and took care of Chris and I on our big day. The food was amazing! All of our guests felt the same. I would definitely recommend Rocky Top to anyone getting married in the area.

Rocky Top Catering did a wonderful job for our wedding reception. Everything was set up perfectly and the food was delicious. It was a pleasure working with them!
Rocky Top Hospitality was very professional from the beginning (Kevin, Elizabeth & Jenn). During the months of preparation they were responsive to all of our questions, had great suggestions and were eager to help make my daughters wedding the memorable day that we hoped for. They helped with the table layouts so that we achieved the flow that we wanted, their wait staff was very attentive during the reception and I am still receiving compliments on the delicious food from our guests! I would recommend this group to anyone! Thank you all for helping to make my daughter's wedding a beautiful day!
When we started looking for venues for our wedding, we were overwhelmed by the number of places in the Raleigh area. We visited 1705 Prime and met with Jenn, and immediately knew this was the venue we were going to be married in.
Jenn is knowledgeable about everything that happens with 1705 Prime and Rocky Top Catering. She answers all of your questions professionally and provides suggestions for your event. In our initial meeting, we told her the vision of the day, and our desired budget - and she never lost sight of either through the entire planning process. She can recommend vendors that fit your needs and budget, and will blow you away!
The chef and other staff are very professional, friendly, and trustworthy.
This was the biggest day of our lives, and we wouldn't have changed a thing!
Rocky top was amazing! Jenn was so responsive with every email I sent. The food and service was amazing! The server was so patient with us as we were taking pictures. Could not have asked for a better caterer!
Jenn and the whole staff at 1705 Prime were so great to work with! They took such good care of us through the planning process and especially the day of the wedding reception! We had a wonderful time and didn't have to worry about a thing - they are pros at this and have it all covered. We're so grateful and highly recommend them! :)
Incredible venue and food! We were coming from out of town and 1705 Prime made our rehearsal dinner fabulous. The entire evening flowed beautifully. The staff was professional, friendly and very attentive to all our needs. I wish they were in our hometown so we could use them for our wedding coming up in November!
I would highly recommend them!
