  • Our wedding will never be forgotten by friends or family because of Parkway Banquets. Besides the fact that they made every step of planning extremely easy and convenient, all of our guests raved about the food! My husband and I lived an hour from the venue, but Jerry always made communication open and simple. I still can not believe all the amazing things we had/did at our wedding for such a great cost! I now recommend Parkway to all of my friends who are recently engaged.

  • Jerry and the staff at Parkway Banquets were a blessing to us for our big day!! We looked at many venues and were very frustrated, when we came across Parkway's information on The Knot. It seemed like a good fit, and very much in line with what we were seeking-a one-stop location for the ceremony and reception, catering and decorations included, plus some scenic places for photos. After meeting with Jerry, we had no doubt this was the place! He gave us many options for the room set up, menus, decorations, etc. He was straightforward without being pushy, made suggestions without detracting us from our vision of our wedding day. The organization and support of Jerry, Michelle, Cathy and the staff were invaluable to us. They were supportive, encouraging, helpful and overall wonderful. I would absolutely go to Parkway first for an important event. Many thanks to the staff for everything!!

  • We can't say enough positive things about our experience with Parkway Banquets. It is a very stressful time when you are planning a wedding and the Parkway made everything wonderful for all of us. Jerry handled every detail with such proffesionalism and care. We were able to enjoy yhe wedding to the fullest extent and had no worries what so ever. All the guests raved about the food and the service they recieved. There was no waiting for drinks, food or dancing. If you want a wedding planner, go to the Parkway, they do it all...in style!!

  • I cannot say enough about how perfect my wedding day was because of Jerry, the staff at Parkway, and Jerry's recommended vendors. I was a VERY organized and picky bride, but Jerry didn't let that phase him. He gave me 150% of what I asked for (extra, high end food at the buffet? Yes sir!) Every single one of my guests made a point to tell me that it was the best and most fun wedding they have ever attended! Thank you Jerry!

  • This could not have been better. Jerry the owner did such an awesome job making our night special. He and the entire staff were very accommodating to everything and very professional. The venue is awesome over looking a semi-private lake (very little boating traffic). This made for some great pictures especially as the sun set over the lake. There is an attached tent accessed through double doors which he offered us at no charge to have our wedding ceremony in if needed at the last minute in-case our plans for a backyard ceremony were spoiled by the weather. Inside the bar, seating, bathrooms, and bridal room are all wonderful. And the dance floor was perfect size even with an 8 piece band. They have lots of center piece options for the tables and up lighting surrounding the room with colors to choose from to set the tone for your event. The food... OMG. We had sooo many compliments on the food. We did buffet style which I was a little skeptical about at first but it was definit... Read more

  • I loved this wedding venue! Jerry is so knowledgeable and helpful during the entire wedding process. Up until the week before my wedding I had co-workers and family members calling me "the calmest bride they've ever seen." Why? Because I had nothing to worry about! Parkway provided the linens, the centerpieces, the food, and he works with so many DJs, photographers, and hotels that finding everything I needed for my wedding was a breeze! At our wedding we had over 200 people and we paid for our wedding what my friends have paid for only having 100 guests or less at other venues. Plus, every guest raved about the food (which is delicious), the dessert table (gorgeous), the open bar (the bartenders were amazing) and the overall atmosphere of the place! Jerry and his staff are so great at what they do they can adjust really quickly and easily to any situation. I had accidentally told Jerry that our guests would be arriving a half hour later than what I had put on the invit... Read more

  • I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone and everyone! I really put all of my trust in Jerry and he blew away all of my expectations! First of all, he has an amazing memory. I would call him up and he would remember exactly who I was, even though I know he has at least two weddings every week. He was very accommodating throughout the whole wedding process. He even recommended other vendors (especially our amazing DJ!) During the rehearsal, he took control and helped organize our large bridal party and my aunt who was officiating her first wedding. He made me feel very confident for the next day. On the day of the wedding, me and the bridesmaids got there SUPER early to get ready in the bridal room. Jerry was very accommodating, and all of the tables and decorations were set up before we even got there (and I know he had a wedding the night before). Before the ceremony, the bartender (AKA the bride whisperer) came into my dressing room to calm me down and talk me through the whole... Read more

  • Our morning ceremony and brunch reception at the Parkway was the happiest day of our lives! Our guests are still raving about the food, the fun, and the fabulous venue! Jerry & his staff did an outstanding job!!The ease of the whole planning process was incredible with the "all-inclusive" type of packages they offer. We couldn't be happier with the service. We highly recommend the Parkway of the Lake Banquet for any large event. Thank you Jerry - a BIG thumbs UP!

  • I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Originally I was going to get married on Labor Day which is a Monday. Someone had cancelled for the Saturday before and Jerry had let us know right away and so we got it switched! Which was awesome. We had so many out of town guests coming and it was easy for them to find, and they all loved the view outside. Jerry literally helps the bride with everything. He is great as a wedding planner. He gives great advice and the day of the wedding he is literally your right hand man. I would say if you are trying to watch the cost, DO NOT DO 5hr reception. It is not enough time to meet with all your guests and dance and have a good time. Food, holy moly. So much food. Buffet is the way to go and he gives you so many options.

  • Jerry was phenomenal! He has done so many weddings and has the experience you want. He guides everyone so they know exactly what they should be doing when, and makes sure this day is all about YOU! I'll admit I saw old reviews and was nervous..like anyone would be . But after meeting Jerry knew I could put my trust in him. Parkway is secluded which is so nice not having to worry about wedding crashers. We got AMAZING photos by the lake during sunset. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect day. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Jerry and Parkway staff!!!!
