  • We recently had our wedding here (October 25th, 2019) and were absolutely thrilled with everything! The team at Parkway made sure that every single detail was perfectly set up just the way we pictured it. It was amazing to have the option to have all of the vendors taken care of through Parkway- it was a huge relief to me as a bride to not have to worry about anything except showing up on time! We were very confident that everything would go on just as planned. Jerry and his team are the best and really treat you like family from the moment you walk through the door. Thank you for the amazing experience! 🥰🖤💙

  • What an amazing venue and an amazing staff! We had our wedding at parkway by the lake last Saturday and everything was perfect. Jerry and his staff are so professional and extremely helpful. They set everything up for the wedding including all your additional decorations. They make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Even when I had a few minor hiccups, Cathy made sure that they were resolved quickly and without me or my wife having to worry about them. The food was equally as amazing. I’ve never heard so many compliments on a wedding venues food. My guests couldn’t stop commenting on it. After the wedding they made sure that all the left over food was packaged up and sent home with us! We had an amazing wedding and I would recommend Parkway Banquets to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding!

    Nick, we are overwhelmed with your kind words here. They mean so much to our entire staff!!! It was a GREAT DAY - for us, too!!! We couldn't be happier that we made you both so happy! And yes, "stuff" happens (like real flowers to be added to the wedding cake not being delivered by a florist...), but there is ALWAYS a way to take care of these things quickly, efficiently, and without drama. Our wish for both of you is for love and laughter that lasts a lifetime. Thank you again!!!

  • My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. Everything down to the finest detail was taken care of for us by Jerry and the amazing staff at Parkway. You don't have to lift a finger except to pick out what you want to eat (which is a ton of food) and your table décor. They do all the rest, Even Clean UP!! You will not be disappointed with the end result.

We wish you a lifetime of happily ever afters full of love & laughter. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

  • Our wedding was Friday September 6th 2019. Jerry, Cathy, Michelle and the crew were wonderful to work with. Everything looked beautiful. We didn’t have to worry about decor, they have a storage closet full of centerpieces. So much food and we got to take the leftovers home. Thankyou for helping us host our friends and family. I doubt you can find another venue that provides everything for a great price and treats you like family!

    Krista! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS NICE REVIEW!!! Yours was such a special wedding for us! We loved working with you both, and will miss all the planning we did together over this past year! We're so glad we made you both so happy. We hope you will have an occasion to come back again soon. Best wishes from the entire staff at Parkway Banquets for a happily ever after that lasts a lifetime!!!

  • Wish I could rate parkway more than 5stars! Parkway was extremely reasonably priced with so much being included from the DJ, photographer, photo booth, centerpieces, chair covers/sashes, cake, having the ceremony there, Dessert table, chocolate fountain, and hor d’oeuvres etc. Jerry, Michelle, and Cathy were so wonderful they made me feel so special and comfortable and Michelle helped me calm my nerves. The also made all my guests feel so welcome and special. They made the whole process so easy. Everything was set up including the extra touch stuff (guest book, pictures, wedding favors) that we were able to drop off the night before and it all looked so beautiful. The food was super delicious and we did buffet style and had so many options of food. The service was amazing. The view of the lake outside was awesome. Also may sound weird but, don't know why I notice at other venues they all have old fashioned ugly carpets and parkway has nice plain carpets I like so much better and lo... Read more

  • 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 b... Read more

  • I had my wedding at Parkway last week. Everything was INCREDIBLE! We had a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding. The whole room looked so elegant and amazing. The food was fantastic, and there was more than enough for everyone to have seconds. The music was great and the venue simply looked amazing. Jerry, Cathy, and Michelle made sure everything looking awesome and make the night go 100% smooth. I would recommend this location for any bride.

  • Jerry and his staff are the epitome of professionalism! We worried about nothing because they made sure we had no cause to. Everything from the ceremony through to the sweets table was outstanding. It was truly fairytale like with the beautifully decorated to the views of the serene lake. We used them 13 years ago for our anniversary party and knew we could trust and rely on Parkway to make it perfect and they did!

    Doris, your words here mean so much to the entire staff at Parkway. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kind words here! What we do is never about us. It's about capturing the dream you have for the perfect wedding day. We look forward to having you back again for another event! Here's to a million happily ever afters!

  • Jerry from Parkway knows his stuff and every recommendation from him was 5 stars! The place is gorgeous with loads of room. They are wedding experts and you will be able to breathe easy the day of because they truly know what they are doing! They helped set up and gave us plenty of time to do so. They helped us through the day-of timeline and it went just as they said. We were married there a year ago and people will still not stop talking about how fantastic the food was. Pricing was VERY fair and we will recommend them to everyone we know with weddings to come! Thank you Parkway Salon for making our day so special!

  • (In short, owner tried to micro manage things and does not follow through) My fiancé and I were very excited about having our wedding reception on the beautiful lake at Parkway. We had read wonderful reviews and my parents had even attended weddings there that went great! Covid hit, and we were promised that everything would be safe and the servers would wear masks. Well, our first issue was when Jerry was holding the cake with his mask half off while talking. We asked him to please put his mask on, and he literally put his hand up and waved us off. One of my bridesmaids had to say “now, we need your mask on.” He was very rude all night as he served the food without his mask hanging down. We continually asked him to put his mask on properly (covering both the nose and mouth). I had to ask a few bridesmaids to remind him every time he came out. Once he said “it keeps falling off” so my bridesmaid offered to give him a new one. He stormed off and we didn’t see him again for a... Read more

    I am sorry you are directing frustrations when you weren't present for some of these discussions.... one of the issues with facemasks is that you cannot see if a person is mad, sad, happy....you cannot SEE their facial expression.......I wasn't ever rude to your guests.....I was not MAD as you reference multiple times......I just do NOT do that......I love what I do here....I ENJOY my work.........but also not sure how you can come to these conclusions for situations you were not even present for......or cannot see thru a mask.... but even so.....rather than go on a rant on social media, please call me....I am more than willing to discuss with you. 1. AS video shows...I am holding the cake in my right hand completely OFF TO MY RIGHT SIDE as I turned other way to talk to you, approx 6 ft away ........yes my mask kept slipping, not off, but below my nose with humidity and that is why I held cake OFF to my right side and talked to you on my left....as video shows 2. No I did not storm off when your bridesmaid confronted me, out of respect to her I went inside and got another mask and dbl sided tape to it so it would cover my nose and not slip down with the high humidity, and I am back helping clear tables 4 min later as video shows....maybe you did not see me? 3. When fiance and I had conversation about weather, the morning humidity was stifling, and I said it might be less humid inside building and I clearly said we will do whatever you want, I was already blowing everything clean in our parking area, so I did NOT grab blower and storm off......please....I was already blowing area clean. Please don't insert mis-truths.... 4. 2 of your people (without masks) confronted me about starting intro's as we stood there WAITING for DJ and I said "we are waiting for your DJ with his sound issues...what do you want me to do"....I was not micro managing, I stood there with all of you waiting for your DJ .....what did you want me to do..??? 5. I suggested doing toasts before dinner, you said keep it as we set it up and we did...I don't care when you do toasts.....but I also KNEW....I KNEW there would be problems with your DJ and his system if we stopped and tried to start again later......even so, I did as you asked...that is not micro managing....I was trying to help avoid what finally did happen..... all night long horrible static and back feed forced your group to do toasts, prayer, speeches with no microphone, every notification of 1st dance or other announcements was ear piercing backfeed....all night long.....and your anger with him becomes my fault???....... your DJ was a nice elderly man, but....you have no idea of the problems he created for us. We worked very hard to overcome these issues, and I would gladly have a discussion with you to review your concerns, but to blast mis-truths or assume things on social media is a bit disappointing I look forward to hearing from you
