Jenn and Rocky Top Catering were the most professional, patient, and accommodating catering personnel we could have dreamed of for our wedding reception. Jenn communicated in a timely manner, and followed through on every single request that we had for our wedding day. The food was delicious...our guests loved it! Everything regarding the dinner and bar service flowed perfectly thanks to them! We consistently had a staff member checking on us throughout the night to see if we needed anything. Amazing!

Rocky Top’s staff was incredibly helpful and professional. We were never in want of anything because they were right there before we even knew we needed them. They made our wedding that much more special by making it a stress free day. Never had a worry. We were able to enjoy the night and could see all our guests were taken care of and happy. Oh yea, and the food was phenomenal!!! Our friends and family overwhelmed us with compliments on the quality of food and our menu choices. I have to give all the credit to Jenn and the crew since we really entrusted them with helping us finalize the menu. All we knew was that we wanted to introduce NC BBQ to our northern and midwestern families. Their talent of taking an idea and flying with it is incomparable! Many many thanks to the Rocky Top staff!!!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Rocky Top Catering for my June wedding. Jenn was absolutely fabulous to work with. I felt at ease with her and could sense her professionalism and expertise. She made great suggestions and really understood what we were looking for.

Yainey was a rock star on the day of of our event. He pitched in to help with flipping the space due to weather issues and made sure the wedding party was able to enjoy the delicious appetizers and even sent us home with a to go box to enjoy the food later.

We received a ton of compliments on the food and service and could not have been happier with our decison to go with Rocky Top.

My husband and I were blown away at how well our event ran at 1705 Prime. Start to finish the staff were nothing but knowledgeable, helpful and communicative. They had it down to a science helping us prepare during our planning meetings. They allowed us to come and set up early and they put out all of the place cards and centerpieces for us. From the time we arrived after the wedding things ran like clockwork. Someone immediately helped us with our first concern of seating unexpected guests. We were take upstairs for some privacy where they had appetizers waiting for us and drinks for everyone in the bridal party. Staff were constantly letting us know when the next phase of the event was beginning and guiding us through the evening. They made sure we had plenty to eat and our drinks NEVER ran dry. I think they even refreshed one because the ice had melted in it while we danced. They packed up all the gifts, guests books and cake and no one had to lift a finger to clean up. They even had to-go boxes ready for us to take along for later. I would absolutely do another event there and recommend it to anyone else. What a tremendous value since it was only $700 beyond the cost of catering the food and you got to use the whole venue and staff. Could not be happier.

Rocky Top is an EXCELLENT caterer. We chose to have our reception at the Blue Zone in Kenan Stadium which meant one of our many wedding planning decisions had been made for us since Rocky Top is the Blue Zone's exclusive caterer. Obviously I checked reviews first to be sure this would be a good move and was surprised by how consistently Rocky Top is rated so highly. We worked with Alison for a solid 18 months and she was ALWAYS quick to respond, professional, polite and such a pleasure. As we began putting together our menu, I had some special requests and they were totally willing to whip up a new recipe for us. Alison attended my rental appointment and coordinated everything with that vendor for me. Alison and Ciara put on a fabulous tasting for four of us where they went above and beyond and allowed me to see how my linen/china choices would come together. The week before and after the wedding, they helped tremendously with drop offs and pickups. On the day of, everything went so smoothly and the food tasted so delicious. The staff is fantastic; I even heard compliments on the bartenders - "best drinks ever!" For anyone looking for a dependable and delicious caterer, I have no doubt you will be best served by Rocky Top Catering!

My wife and I selected Rocky Top Catering for the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. From the beginning, our experience was positive. Kevin, De Himer, the staff person we worked with, was very professional and helpful throughout the process. He arranged for us to do a private tasting before committing and signing the agreement. That tasting, along with one of their quarterly tastings that Rocky Top holds for its clients, allowed us to sample a variety of food and helped us to pick out exactly what we wanted. Our guests were highly complimentary of the food for our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The catering staff at our events were very professional and responsive to any individual needs that arose. I would highly recommend Rocky Top to anyone who is looking to host a private catering event!

We used Rocky Top /1705 Prime , Fresh Affairs Florest / Lyn for the wedding Planner and The Grand Marque in Garner for the venue, it was over the top! Kevin was amazing we had signature drinks Watermelon Fiz with gin, bacon wrapped scallops, crab cakes, chicken sliders during cocktails and for the dinner we had sea bass, filets and herb chicken. Everyone went on and on how good the food was. Kevin was so helpful with everything we asked and I feel like I have a new friend. He has a calm gentle nature that is great to work with. He took the stressful party of a wedding and made it amazing! Did I mention I loved working with Kevin! Great company food tasting was fun and can not say enough about him!

We hired Rocky Top for our wedding and if I had to sum them up in one word, it would be: amazing. Jenn was our contact, and she was so professional, responded to my emails within minutes, made sure I had everything I needed. She almost became like a wedding coordinator in that when I had difficulty getting an answer from our (non Rocky Top) venue, Jenn worked out all the details- even making sure my cousin's son had a high chair!

The food was second to none. We did a fusion of North Carolina-English cuisine, as my new husband is English. Rocky Top created a custom menu that reflected that. On the day, they provided us with Yanny, who was our manager. Yanny and his staff were attentive and awesome- they helped us clean up the ballroom and even packed my dad's car for us at the end of the night!

Yanny and the Rocky Top staff always checked in with us and made sure we were ok, if we needed anything and if our guests were happy. Our day was made amazing because of Rocky Top- we're sad we won't be talking with Jenn every day anymore- we'll miss her!

We had our wedding at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences back in May. The venue was absolutely perfect for my husband and I, and we could not have done it without the guidance, support, and delicious food provided by the Rocky Top team!! Leanne helped us plan out the menu, rentals, and timing needed for our wedding, and worked with our budget so well. We really could not have pulled it off without her. In addition, the staff was kind and attentive, and rolled with the flow of the event really well. The venue looked so beautiful, and the food was honestly the best I have ever had at a buffet (and I worked in catering for four years). Don't hesitate to use Rocky Top for your wedding catering! They are top notch professionals and will help make your day run smoothly!

Rocky Top did an AMAZING job catering our wedding this past Saturday. We have a ton of foodie friends & family and everyone, including them absolutely loved the food! We could not have asked for a better caterer. Rocky Top definitely helped make our day perfect. I've never been to a wedding where the steak was cooked properly since they are being mass produced. But Rocky Top somehow managed to cook every single piece of steak, perfectly! We would definitely recommend Rocky Top to anyone looking for amazing food, coupled with excellent service!

The staff of 1705 made our wedding fantastic. We enjoyed every moment of the day. The food was spectacular and our guests (and the bridal party) have been raving about the wedding ever since. I (the bride) woke up with a terrible sore throat on the day of the wedding and throughout the reception 1705 staff checked in on me and brought me the perfect drink to feel better.

Rocky Top Catering catered our wedding reception at All Saints Chapel. We chose Rocky Top because of their excellent reviews and experience flipping the space at All Saints from ceremony to reception. We worked with Jenn, and from the beginning of the process, she was amazing. She was always very prompt when responding to emails and worked with us on our vision and budget. The food was out of this world and we received many, many compliments from our guests. The service was unmatched. I've heard about brides and grooms missing out on their food completely, and this definitely was not the case with Rocky Top. A server brought out a tray of apps for family members while we took pictures after the ceremony. They made plates for us and constantly checked to see if we needed anything. They even packaged up to-go boxes for us at the end of the night. If you want an unforgettable event that you don't have to worry about the night-of, you can't go wrong with Rocky Top.

Using Rocky Top as our wedding caterer was the best decision we've ever made! I met Jenn at a bridal show last Fall and told her our venue (Haywood Hall). She immediately gave us suggestions regarding food, set-up, ceremony, etc. because she knows how DIY Haywood is and they have done many many weddings there, so deciding on Rocky Top was easy. She not only helped decide on a menu, but also with rentals and she even was our ceremony coordinator! Jenn is very easy to work with and very responsive. Kella was also there the day of and she was AMAZING! They really made the day go so smoothly, as well as everyone else on the staff that night. We had a server who basically made sure my husband and I had food and drinks whenever we wanted them. It was awesome. Oh and the food was SOOO good, people are still talking about how amazing it was! Thanks Rocky Top!

There wasn't a second during our reception that either of us needed anything before being asked. Their staff was remarkable in being sure everything went smoothly and we (and our guests!) were well fed! Absolutely PERFECT as far as wedding vendors go!! :)

ROCKY TOP CATERING IS AWESOME!!!! I can't possibly say enough good things about these guys. They are top noch professionals and I highly, highly recommend them for any event. My husband and I had them cater our wedding reception and I think we made the best possible choice. Rocky Top just did the passed appetizers at our event, because the venue we chose (The Pour House Music Hall - also highly recommended) did all of the alcohol in house and we did not do a dinner at our reception. However, if I had needed Rocky Top for any of those things, I have no doubt they would have knocked it out of the park!!

Jenn Carlin and her team at RT were so PHENOMENAL to work with! Jenn was my main point of contact during the planning of our event and she was so super nice and incredibly easy to work with. I feel like I barely had to think about a thing. Which is awesome when you have so much to think about. She gave us great recommendations on the best appetizers during our first meeting, and all of our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was. They also managed to make a very unconventional venue work, and didn't even blink an eye when I told them there was hardly a kitchen to work with. I think these guys could serve food anywhere, seriously :)

During the event, the servers were super professional and nice. They did an awesome job and showed up looking like total pros. They worked their butts off, and delivered great quality service.

When I was planning this reception I was so stressed trying to pick vendors and I spent so much time reading so many of these reviews, debating, reading some more, debating -- and I'm telling you -- if you choose Rocky Top you will not regret it for a second. If I were in your shoes again, I'd choose these guys a million times over :)

Thanks Jenn & the team at Rocky Top for helping make our event a huge success and a night to remember :) You guys rock!!

It was wonderful to have such a professional and experienced group - we really didn't have to stress about anything at all and I'm so glad we trusted them with our big day!

Oh my gosh. I cannot even begin to explain how GLAD I am that we went with Rocky Top Catering for our vendor. Jenn Carlin is AMAZING. My husband and I initially met with her in September 2013 and had our wedding on Nov 30, 2013. For only two months of planning and with my crazy-pregnancy brain, Jenn was absolutely the number one person I had on my team. She offered us so many food options to stay within our budget. We were even allowed to provide the alcohol ourselves and used their bartenders.

Working up to the wedding day, Jenn met with us to pick out our linen rentals. She even was our advocate when it came to changing the linens and dinnerware to match better with our budget. THAT was extremely helpful.

When it came to the wedding day itself, we didn't hire a wedding planner. Jenn was there the whole time to help direct the order of events and line up people to walk down the aisle. Again, I can't say enough here about how fantastic she was. I would absolutely recommend her service and this company to anyone.

She allowed us to have our rehearsal dinner at 1705 Prime the night before. The food was INCREDIBLE. On our wedding day, the food was incredible as well (even though we didn't eat much - busy busy with guests!). People still can't stop talking about the food and it's been two months.

I just want to say if you are worrying about the prices of this catering company, which actually was the biggest expense of our wedding, if you can handle it, do it. It's WORTH it. It will save you a giant headache and you won't have to worry about a thing on your wedding day. I planned my wedding in two months with a baby on the way and felt like Jenn was the number one person I could trust to handle the food, the service, and other wedding details I didn't even think of. Go with this company!! You won't regret it.

There are no words to explain how fantastic Rocky Top Catering was for our wedding. Professional, extremely responsive, accommodating; all around a fantastic catering vendor. I lost count of how many times I heard the exact phrase "that was the best food I have ever eaten at a wedding." I had more than one person even admit they enjoyed our wedding food more than their own.


All night long Rocky Top Catering remained fantastic! As the bridal party stood outside and waited for my new husband and I to wrap up wedding pictures and enter the reception, one of the servers made sure to bring each bridesmaid and groomsmen a drink and appetizers and even made a point to grab a beer for us as newlyweds. When our guests finished 5 cases of Bud Light in half an hour Jenn (our Catering Sales Manager) personally drove from Apex back to Raleigh to re-stock and saved the party. My husband and I loved Dakota, the girl who waited on us, and my family particularly enjoyed the bartender. Everyone one at Rocky Top was professional, the service they provided ensured a formal and classy affair that left all of our guests in awe.

Even during the planning process I used Jenn as a resource many times. She had an answer for every question I could even imagine and made selecting my wedding day rentals so much easier (a task that was particularly intimidating). You will have absolutely no regrets if you chose Rocky Top for your big day. I could go on for days but suffice it to say : they are THE BEST!

There are no words to explain how fantastic Rocky Top Catering was for our wedding. Professional, extremely responsive, accommodating; all around a fantastic catering vendor. I lost count of how many times I heard the exact phrase "that was the best food I have ever eaten at a wedding." I had more than one person even admit they enjoyed our wedding food more than their own.


All night long Rocky Top Catering remained fantastic! As the bridal party stood outside and waited for my new husband and I to wrap up wedding pictures and enter the reception, one of the servers made sure to bring each bridesmaid and groomsmen a drink and appetizers and even made a point to grab a beer for us as newlyweds. When our guests finished 5 cases of Bud Light in half an hour Jenn (our Catering Sales Manager) personally drove from Apex back to Raleigh to re-stock and saved the party. My husband and I loved Dakota, the girl who waited on us, and my family particularly enjoyed the bartender. Everyone one at Rocky Top was professional, the service they provided ensured a formal and classy affair that left all of our guests in awe.

Awesome, awesome experience with Jenn from Rocky Top Catering. My brother and sister-in-law used this company for their wedding in 2011, and highly recommended them. My husband and I are active duty military and moved from one continent to the other while planning our wedding - Jenn from Rocky Top was very flexible and responsive via email and over the phone with menu planning, setting up a tasting and rental appointments, and with processing payments. The coordinated rental service was awesome and saved me a lot of time and effort, it was much appreciated that Jenn handled that aspect for us.

The food was DELICIOUS. Majority of the guests commented on the tastiness of the buffet and appetizers. The bar service was friendly and great. The servers were all professional. Megan, who coordinated our catering on the day of, was responsive and great to work with.

Could not recommend Rocky Top more!

Jenn Carlin and the wonderful folks at 1705 Prime did an amazing job for our wedding reception! We have heard so many compliments on the amazing food and the gorgeous 1705 Prime! Jenn was always responsive to emails, despite how many I sent her!! She was fantastic to work with from the beginning and was flexible throughout the entire process. In fact, we often had difficult schedules and short notice to meet with her as we were planning from out of state, and she went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. We did a buffet dinner and only heard wonderful things about the food! It was delicious -- and yes, I did actually get to eat on my wedding day! Thanks for that!! The whole day went so smoothly and everyone had a great time! 1705 far exceeded our expectations and Jenn Carlin is absolutely amazing!! Would highly recommend their services to any of my friends getting married!

Rocky Top is simply the best! I had attended several events in the past catered by Rocky Top and then was recommended to call Jenn when it came time to book a caterer for my own wedding. Best decision ever! She was so great about making up a menu for our dinner, and incredibly helpful with all the rentals we needed. Our venue came with absolutely nothing and everything had to be rented. Jenn was very communicative and so easy to work with throughout the entire process (and it was a 2 year engagement so she got to deal with me for quite a while!). I'm an event planner myself so I had some definite picky needs and special ideas and Jenn was amazing with suggestions and bringing to life what I pictured.

Oh and before I forget, perhaps the most important thing - SO DELICIOUS! Everything is amazing! I was telling one of my bridesmaids the final menu a couple weeks before the wedding and she literally said, "Oh my gosh, I don't think I've ever been more excited to eat. I cannot wait!" She was definitely not disappointed :)

If you're using a venue that requires an outside caterer you would be doing yourself a huge disservice to not choose Rocky Top. Call Jenn - you won't regret it!

P.S. Donut Flambe Station. Do yourself a favor here. It is a must have!

We were very pleased with the service we received from Rocky Top Catering for our wedding reception at the Museum of Natural Sciences. From the beginning, Seth was extremely helpful, accommodating, and professional, to name a few. He personally went out off his way to make sure our evening was extra special - and it most certainly was. At the reception, Seth and his team provided excellent service and exceptional food and beverage. My husband and I are still receiving compliments to this day. I would highly recommend Seth and Rocky Top Catering. Kudos on a job well done!

My husband and I used Rocky Top Catering for our wedding reception at the Blue Zone in Kenan Stadium and have nothing but EXCELLENT things to say:

Alison Purdee is amazing at what she does - she organized our entire day, met up to help us cart additional items into the reception venue. She reassured us of everything. And due to a rain delay, she was flexible the day-of with rescheduling my husband and my entrance time. I want to have my wedding all over again thanks to her.

Rocky Top Catering is, in three words: delicious, personalized, and professional. Not only is their food delicious, but their menu was open to suggestions and favorites. I loved that my husband and I were able to choose what we liked (Southern food) and make changes - there was no set menu or set price. It felt like our wedding. Finally, the staff we had under Alison was all smiles, professional and just made that wedding evening feel like a dream.

THANK YOU!

Rocky Top Catering wonderful! Jen was like my fairy god mother, and came to my rescue after the catering company I originally contracted with unexpectedly cancelled. Shortly after contacting her and explaining my situation, she had sent over a quote, and was providing almost hourly updates on where she was with securing staff, since it was the 4th of July weekend. Jen and her staff were there and on point as if they had been preparing for the event for months, and the food was amazing. I cannot say thank you enough! I even went to each server and thank them individually, because I knew that they did not have to be there. I will forever be grateful to Jen and her team for their professionalism and readiness, as they truly saved the day!

I had the most wonderful experience with Jenn and all of the staff at Rocky Top Catering. Jenn was always quick to respond to my questions and provided us with a ton of help/advice in preparing a great menu within our budget for the cocktail hour and dinner at our wedding. We have so many of our guests tell us how wonderful the food was and that they experienced spectacular service the entire night. Often you hear about the wedding party not getting to eat the hors d'oeuvres because they are taking pictures or the bride and groom not being able to eat dinner because they don't have time to get their food or eat it due to greeting guests, etc. That was not the case for our wedding! We had servers bringing our wedding party hors d'oeuvres while we were taking pictures during the cocktail hour and ensuring that we didn't miss out on any of it! Jenn and her crew also made sure when we had dinner that my husband and I had a plate made for us and brought to our table, as well as continuously checked on us to see if we needed anything or if there was anything more they could do for us. I just can't express the countless compliments we received from our guests and how pleased we were with all of the services we received from the beginning stages of planning until the end of the reception. It truly was a stress free night and better than we could have imagined!! I can't say it enough...the food was AMAZING, the service and the staff were WONDERFUL and so nice, and we couldn't have been happier!!!

We chose Rocky Top after it was highly recommended by several of our other vendors. Being from out of town, I was hesitant to let my family do the tasting, but the food was absolutely phenomenal. They have an extensive menu to choose from and lots of different options for the format. My now-husband and I literally didn't sit down the entire evening but the staff went out of their way to box up some of everything!! Eating it later, we really regretted not getting to try it at the reception. The staff was absolutely as well- some of the most professional people I've worked with. They were very attentive to guests' needs and even came outside and made sure the bridal party got some of the passed hors d'oeuvres and drinks while waiting to go into the reception. They also made sure the two of us had a fresh drink in hand all evening, which we are so grateful for! They exceeded expectations and we would definitely recommend them!

We had Rocky Top as our caterer for our buffet dinner at our reception. The food was absolutely amazing. Everyone came up to us afterwards saying how delicious everything was. I liked how they offer a tasting night where you can go for dinner and sample certain things that they would serve. The people working the reception were so nice and always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hand :) Jenn was great to work with too!

Superior, Top-notch, & First-rate are words I'd use to describe Kevin DeHimer and Rocky Top Catering. I had the pleasure of working with Kevin DeHimer coordinating menu items, linens, glassware & china for my wedding reception. He was extremely professional, responded promptly to emails & down right fun to work with! On my wedding day my guests were very impressed with the Rocky Top staff and their high level of service. They were very attentive to everyone's needs and the food was amazing!

Rocky Top is GREAT! I can't say enough good things about Kevin and his team. The food was so amazing and the staff was so professional. Everyone at our wedding commented how good the servers were and how fantastic the food tasted. Cocktail hour and dinner ran so smoothly and everyone got their food quickly. Kevin really listened to what we wanted for our menu and executed exactly how we planned. Kevin also personally made sure that we had all of the rental items we would need to serve the dinner since our venue was a blank space.

This food was excellent!!! The service was impeccable! I asked our guests and everyone said that it was the best wedding food they'd had (especially the lyonnaise sweet potatoes side and the Thai chicken salad hors d'oeuvre) and that the the servers and planner were extremely attentive. Our coordinator there took care of so many things that I didn't even think of and just made the whole evening run so smoothly. Kevin DeHimer is awesome!!! I can't recommend this vendor enough--food was top notch, service was perfect, and they went above and beyond.

Rocky Top was wonderful! I can't say enough good things about this caterer. The food was delicious and they ran the cocktail hour and dinner reception so smoothly. We had waiters that came around to the tables to get drink refills and invited our guests up to the buffet so our band didn't have to announce table numbers. My husband and I were taken care of the entire night and they got us plates so we didn't have to go through the line. They were very easy to work with and very professional. They definitely know what they're doing and their chefs rock!!!

The bar service was quick, everything was set out perfectly. Kella worked our event and she made sure that the timeline was kept, which was such a blessing. The employees working our event were kind, impeccably dressed and very professional. I think my favorite part was the cake table up against the glass wine cellar- AMAZING!

He was there for us every step of the way and on the day of our wedding, he made sure everything occurred on time and to our request.

Kevin is an amazing person to work with and always offered suggestions and services that made our wedding food that much better. If you sceptical, go to one of Rocky Top's many open house events. I went with my husband and parents to one of their events in Raleigh and my dad still talks about how amazing the food and entertainment were.

We appreciated the flexibility to bring in our own wines, and they very gracefully navigated within the space of our home to setup and serve our guests. All were very impressed - it's a pleasure to recommend them.

We had an absolutely beautiful wedding that went off without a hitch due to the talent and professionalism of the Rocky Top team. We worked closely with Kevin who helped us make all the important decisions for our big day. Our guests were more than impressed with their delicious food and the lounge area added another level of fun to the party.

As we planned, there was always someone available to meet with us to answer questions or allow us inside the venue to check things out which made our experience very easy and stress free. The venue itself is modern and cozy and perfect for an initimate wedding!

We HIGHLY recommend Rocky Top Catering and 1705 Prime to host your wedding or cater your special event!

I held my wedding and reception at 1705 prime yesterday and was so satisfied that I couldn't wait to post my review. From the delicious dinner to the friendly, patient and super helpful employees at 1705 prime everything was beyond my expectations. At 1705 Prime they make it so you don't have to think. During our photo session outside they brought out hourderves and made sure the bridal party was satisfied and though we did a buffet style dinner they served all of the children at their tables. They also served my husband and I which meant a lot to me as I've heard many stories of the bride and groom missing out on their cake and dinner. They assisted in setup and take down of the Centerpieces and all of my guests were super impressed. I love 1705 Prime and Kevin Dehimer rocks!!!

Kevin was a pleasure to work with!!!! He helped us pick the perfect menu that was unique but still very tasty! Our guests loved the food and as we walked around, all we saw were empty plates. The staff was awesome and very responsive. They made sure that the bridal party got appetizers during the cocktail hour (since we had to take pics) and they were very nice. Kevin and the staff at Rocky Top are absolutely the best!!

Not only was the food delicious, but the service was AMAZING! Our reception felt like a five-star restaurant and our guests raved about the food. Throughout the entire planning process, Kevin was incredibly responsive and helped us with every detail, even arranging for us to have a special Cheerwine toast :) Food is such a major part of a wedding and we were relieved to have had such a professional staff that made our evening flow perfectly.

I just hate that my wedding is over! I highly recommend this venue for any special event that you are planning.

Rocky Top was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Kevin and the entire Rocky Top made us a top priority throughout the entire wedding process. The food was excellent and served in an expeditious manner. Kevin went so far as to assist my planner with picking out linens, etc. They allowed us to make changes even as close to a week before the wedding and were always looking for ways to give us better value for the price. Their appetizers were a hit amongst the guests. I would recommend this vendor to friends, family, and strangers.

We were not really sure what to expect when we used Rocky Top in another venue, and not the 1705 Prime location, but were absolutely thrilled with both the service and the food! Our guests raved about the personalized service at each table, and yet the servers were also very unobtrusive in their efforts to be everywhere at once. They worked hard the whole evening, bringing drinks, clearing plates and were friendly and professional for the duration of the event. The food was absolutely delicious and convinced our daughter that a buffet could be elegant as well as tasty! Thank you again for making our daughter's wedding an amazing day! The Hernandez family

My fiance' and I went to a couple of tastings before we went to Rocky Top Catering. But once we entered Rocky Top, we knew there was something special about the place. After tasting the food and making a personal appointment we knew we had made the right choice. Catering Sales Manager, Kevin DeHimer walked us through the whole process without a hitch. He helped me in every step of the way. From selecting the plated meal to even going with me to pick out the linens, china and flatware. I felt that Kevin acted far beyound the call of his duty to make sure our wedding was perfect! Rocky Top and their staff is the BEST!

Jenn C. was our sales manager who coordinated the whole thing and did everything we asked and beyond, she was so thorough with everything to make the day easy on us. And packed up everything that night for us perfectly to pick up the following day. Very pleased and I would definitely suggest them to anyone.

First and foremost, our wedding reception food was amazing ... two months later and we're still getting complements on the shrimp & grits, filets, and late night snacks (sliders, chips & guacamole!). The staff was extremely easy to work with and willing to answer 1000s of questions. They were flexible and happy to customize the menu to fit both our budget and our preferences. I would definitely use them again.

We fell in love with this venue as soon as we saw it. We love the modern feel inside with the outdoor ceremony location. All the staff were very accommodating and made each of our requests a reality. Our coordinator did change three times throughout our planning process which was a little frustrating but each person was very responsive and attentive. The only small negative I would have about the site would be the location. The busy street corner is a bit noisy but it did provide some comic relief to our ceremony! All in all I would highly recommend 1705 to any couple!a

Jenn, Allison and all the staff were wonderful to work with. Their suggestions were invaluable in helping us get the reception my daughter and her fiance wanted to have and still have it within our budget. The food was AWESOME! We had many, many comments on how delicious the food was! My compliments to the chef. The service was excellent. The staff did a great job of passing the appetizers so that everyone had a chance to sample everything. They also did a great job of servicing the food stations so there was plenty of food for the main courses as people returned for seconds. They were also great about removing finished plates from the tables, offering additional drinks, etc. It couldn't have been done more professionally. I would HIGHLY recommend Rocky Top Catering to anyone!

It is big and has plenty of space for guests to roam and be comfortable. Guests have told me it is some of the best wedding food they have ever had. Creating our menu was effortless and they really do work with you on everything! The staff is wonderful and I always felt I could trust them with everything. In fact, all my other vendors told me how wonderful they were to work with. 1705 Prime and Rocky Top really made my wedding the best I could imagine!

We had our reception at 1705 Prime and can't say enough good about it! The employee we worked with was so pleasant and was happy to address any concern we had in the planning process. We came two days before the wedding to bring some "decorations" and personalized pieces for the reception and expected to be there for a couple of hours setting up. Alison, our event contact, insisted that we leave the items and that they would take care of everything....and the day of the wedding I saw what a great job they did with set-up! Other weddings in my family, we had to do almost all the work at the facilities we used for receptions-down to passing out favors/farewell rose petals,etc. 1705 was a breath of fresh air because we actually felt like guests at our own event. They were so willing to help and take things off of our worry list. The facility itself is unique with contemporary decor. I didn't have to do much decorating because the place is already pretty! I would highly recommend having an event at 1705, the staff was wonderful and they truly helped make our reception enjoyable and carefree.

I cannot say enough amazing things about 1705 Prime (Rocky Top Hospitality) to serve proper justice. This venue and catering made our day PERFECT! We found 1705 and began working with Kevin there and received amazing communication and information. They were so flexible with our travel schedule (we are from out of town) for doing walk through visits and catering meetings. Alison served as our catering manager and perfectly attended to nearly every detail, question and concern we had! They are experienced, accountable, flexible and the food is amazing! So many guests commented that the venue was one of the best & most unique they had been to and was an excellent venue for the cocktail hour and dinner/dancing reception we had. Our guests also informed us that the food was by far the best they had ever had at a wedding before! My (now) husband and I purchased so much glassware and hundreds of candles, amongst all the other reception items, and they were nice enough to store everything for us in advance and set everything up perfectly! After our final walk through, I knew everything would be perfect, and it was. Amazing food, amazing venue and among the best of the best in service!! Our guests couldn't believe how awesome the cocktail, dinner and bar service was!! Highly recommended -- this place will ensure your event is perfection!

I cannot thank Kevin and his team enough. Cannot cannot cannot thank them enough... From menu creation to presentation it was phenomenal. We worked out amazing items, nothing was ordinary. The dishes looked like works of art. The entrees of filet were cooked to perfection; not one single complaint. Guests were absolutely blown away and it was better than the level of perfect I dreamed up in my head.

Just one of a ton of highlights: I asked for "chocolate cones" that fit into champagne glasses and Kevin found them in NYC. He delivered and it was at a very reasonable cost. He refused to say no as I think many other caterers would. It made my wedding unique and he took on the headache so I wouldn't have to arrange shipping or anything.


If I could carry Kevin around with me forever I totally would-- he was THAT fun, easy to work with and dead on with every last detail. And the waitstaff and cooks rocked it. They don't disappoint but a lot of caterers can do that... They went the extra mile and amazed and over delivered. I will recommend them forever.

Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!!!

***MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT WE USED THE GRAND MARQUISE BALLROOM, WHICH WAS AN AWFUL EXPERIENCE, AND NOT THEIR VENUE SPACE!***

My review is more than a year overdue, but having just celebrated our first wedding anniversary I'd be remiss not to share my review on 1705 Prime. Being an out of town bride, I was hesitant and nervous about putting trust into our reception site to work through all the details, but Kevin really put me at ease. He even met with my parents who on my behalf facilitated some of the planning details. We were married in a church 2 minutes away, and had the party at 1705 Prime. 99% of our guests were out of state. The space is laid out nicely, and although it looks like a home from the 1800s, inside is so contemporary - it's the best of both worlds. Plus, the food is divine. Every single one of our guests (no exaggeration) loved the reception - the convenience to hotel/church/airport, food, the space, the layout, the staff, everything. We all loved it that we even half seriously contemplated having another party there just to have another party because it was so much fun. Alison was our event day coordinator, and again I was nervous upon hearing this because by that point I had worked with Kevin for more than a year, and likewise, she put everything at ease. They accommodated vegan meals for a few of our guests and other last minute requests. The staff at our wedding reception were attentive and exceptional. Kevin and Alison took care of a lot of the details, assisting with questions, meeting with us when we were in town to discuss the food, the event day details. They decorated the place as I would have had I been there. Being a DIY bride, I did my own flowers, decor, as well as favors, and I put them into Kevin and Alison's trusty hands to take care of on event day. Our wedding day was special. Our reception fun and memorable. We extend our gratitude to Kevin, Alison, and the team at 1705 Prime for this wonderful memory.

We highly recommend 1705 Prime for anyone looking for a wedding/reception venue. My husband and I knew as we left from our first meeting with the staff of Prime that we had found our wedding and reception site. The staff was very flexible with our menu changes and also gave great insight to helping us pick linens to match the overall decor we wanted for our wedding. Kevin and Alison were awesome and did everything they could to make our day go off without a hitch.

I worked with Kevin and Alison while planning my ceremony and reception at the venue 1705 Prime. The entire process was extremely easy, and Kevin kept me organized the entire time and was very responsive with emails and telephone calls. I also had a few special requests (beer mainly, haha) that they worked in for me so easily and without any problems. And on the day of, if anything went wrong I had NO idea. The service was amazing, and the food was phenomenal. The bridal party had a personal waiter, Todd, who made sure we had drinks and appetizers while we were taking photos outside. My glass was always full. It was a beautiful venue and I cannot say enough good things about my wedding experience with Rocky Top Catering. My guests still rave about the food too, someone actually told me that the stuffed mushrooms we has as an appetizer were not only the best stuffed mushrooms they'd ever had, but the best food they'd ever had period. The shrimp and grit "martinis" were my favorite, best shrimp and grits I have ever had as well. It was the perfect place for our perfect day.

2. The space- unique, chic, and requires minimal decoration outisde of table centerpieces.
3. Affordability

1705 was an awesome reception venue. My husband and I were looking for somewhere different than a hotel or country club that still had an elegant and contemporary feel. The space is amazing, but what really sold me was Maite and her willingness to truly make the reception our own. We had so many options for food, decor, drinks, etc. Maite and her staff were SUPER attentive during the whole planning process, as well as during the actual wedding. Our drinks were never empty and we always had someone checking up on us. I really can't say enough about this place!!

I can't say enough good things about the experience my wife and I received from Kevin at 1705 Prime. He was a godsend to us with how helpful, professional, easy-going, and knowledgeable he was all throughout our wedding planning and the actual reception. The venue itself was beautiful, and is perfectly laid out. Our guests really enjoyed having a separate bar area for the cocktail hour, and our wedding party was very grateful to have their own private waiting room upstairs.

I think the thing that stood out the most to my wife and I was how our every need was take care of in the most professional and quick manner possible. Kevin was very easy to communicate with, as was everybody at 1705 Prime who assisted us. During our wedding reception, Kevin assigned my wife and I our own private waitress, who constantly refilled out glasses, brought us our food plates, etc etc, which was a huge help!

All in all we could not have asked for a better reception venue than 1705 Prime, we highly, highly recommend them! The price was very affordable, especially for the quality of service we received! Thanks to all the 1705 Prime staff for making our reception perfect!

They didn't miss a single detail and instead helped us have an awesome, worry-free weekend. The venue was perfect. The staff was amazing. The food was to die-for (Yes! they even made sure I got to eat!). They even set up all the decor and ran the show flawlessly.

Kevin DeHimer and the entire staff at Rocky Top Catering provided PHENOMENAL catered food, bar service, and help with selecting and setting up our rentals for our wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests about the quality of the food and the beauty of the decor at our wedding in downtown Wake Forest. We were not surprised since we had attended tastings ahead of time at 1705 Prime and knew just how good their food and drinks are. We were thrilled with their service during our wedding as well - they even made plates for us so we could eat dinner uninterrupted at our sweetheart table. I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin's services and Rocky Top Hospitality to anyone.

Working with Kathy White at 1705 Prime for our wedding reception was an absolute pleasure. First and foremost, she helped us to plan every detail of our reception, and had a great eye for details while always considering what I wanted. She is one of the sweetest people. The food was exceptional with a beautiful presentation! It didn't taste like it had been sitting with a food cover over the plate for an hour like food can at some weddings. Service at 1705 Prime was phenomenal as well. As soon as I was done with a glass of wine, there was a server waiting with another for me. I would recommend 1705 Prime again and again!!

Kathy White & 1705 Prime gave me the dream wedding I could only wish for. In the beginning, when I first met Kathy and told her I wanted a short engagement, she was extremely willing to do whatever it took to get me and my husbands every wish for our wedding day.

We had dreamed of an outdoor wedding, and even though 1705 had never held an outdoor wedding, it had always been a dream of Kathy's so she made it happen. She was able to get cocktail tables and chairs for the ceremony, and she coordinated with all of the vendors to ensure that it went perfectly. We were able to have our entire event at 1705, the ceremony, pictures, and reception.The food was absolutely declicious--especially the mashed potato martini bar!! My guests have raved about it since.

The staff at 1705 was extremely attentive and helpful--and were always there when the groom and I needed anything. They had tastings for the bride, groom & family to help with our choices in food, and they also spent a lot of time discussing the bar and how to coordinate the evening in general. The staff was easy to get ahold of and quick to respond to any questions I had. They were an absolute joy to work with and captured the vision that I had dreamed of since a little girl. I honestly could not say ENOUGH about how pleased I was with 1705 for my wedding day and reception!

This restaurant is where Michael Dean's used to be and is now their new catering and events restaurant. It has been remodeled and is so elegant and beautiful. The price is very affordable compared to other reception places in Raleigh. They are very professional, all of the servers were very attentive and nice. The food was phenomenal. The chefs there are very nice as well. I had the wedding of my dreams here and it surpassed all my expectations. I recommend this place to everyone! The only drawback is there Capital Room which is the largest only holds 120 MAX seated and around 200 standing. I had just under 100 and it was perfect. I would have put a 10 out of 5 if I could have!

Rocky Top Catering was a spectacular vendor to work with. From the first tasting we went to we loved the food, and then when we met with Kevin and he was truly trying to cater his service to our favorite foods, and not trying to up-sell us but respecting our price point-- we were sold. They did not disappoint after that either, we had a wonderful tasting of the menu we chose with Will, where he helped advise on the rentals we would need and took care of the booking of those. The reception was a complete success, we chose very specific appetizers to represent different parts of our lives and they were to die for. Everything was set up just like I wanted it and I never had to worry about anything the entire night. Right when I got there they had a plate of the appetizers waiting for the bridal party. The plated salad was delicious and everything ran right on schedule. The buffet ran very smoothly and everyone was raving about the food. Kevin recommended the short ribs to us and I am so glad we listened, they were amazing and everyone couldn't get enough. We had numerous people telling us that this was the best wedding food they ever had. We had plenty of food for everyone, and they did a wonderful job serving the alcohol that we brought, cleaning up after everyone, and had a huge hand in making it the best night of my life. I would highly recommend Rocky Top to anyone who wants to work with great people and eat amazing food :)!!

I worked with Jenn at Rocky Top for my wedding and she did a fabulous job! The food is delicious - much better than most catered food I've had before. They also have a lot of unique options to choose from, which really impressed our guests. The only minor issue we experienced was that there was no gin at the bar when the reception started but they were able to get some pretty quickly. Overall, they did a great job, the waitstaff was very attentive and a fun group to work with. I don't think you can do better than Rocky Top!

This was a great location to have a reception for our guests. Kevin and his whole team really did everything they could to make sure that our day was special for us. I originally picked this venue because I felt that all I needed to do was make sure that there were centerpieces. I was completely correct. The whole team at 1705 Prime ensured that every little detail was taken care of (even if I forgot something). Thank you!

I am Mother of the Bride. My daughters wedding was April 28, 2012. We had the wedding at 1705 Prime and it was spectacular! Kevin was the ultimate planner and managed everything perfectly. 1705 was a perfect Elegant and quaint venue. Impeccable service which is on the top of my list. Delicious food (many guests said the crab cakes were the best they've eaten!!) The venue was clean, the bathrooms were clean and updated. My elderly parents couldn't get the words 'I'm hungry' out before Kevin showed with plates of food at the cocktail hour. At dinner, the servers wrapped up the meal they couldn't finish. My old Italian picky mom was super impressed!! I live in a resort area which is a huge wedding destination area but am so glad that we decided to do it in Raleigh at 1705 Prime, where my daughter lives. I loved that they did all the set up and breakdown for us. Kevin did all the thinking for us!! Best value for our money!!

Go into the event preparing to make a seating chart and make sure that the venue you have picked has plenty of space to accommodate last minute table additions. Also, make sure that you are comfortable with who you are working with at the venue because you will have A LOT of last minute questions and requests!!!

1705 Prime was perfect for our reception! We had a very small guest list, and wanted an intimate feel, and couldn't have found a better place. We chose the salmon and filet mignon for our guests, and both dishes were absolutely delicious! Maite and Kevin were a joy to work with, and definitely helped to make our day very memorable.

Rocky Top provided a catered buffet for our son's rehearsal dinner at the King's Daughters Inn in Durham, NC. The food and presentation were wonderful, along with professional, friendly service staff and bartender. Kevin was prompt at responding to any messages and made himself available to meet with us when we requested it, even driving to the site of the event for our convenience. He even stopped at another site to pick up a lovely "sample" full size cake for my husband and I to sample as we chose a cake to celebrate the bride's birthday which happened to be the day of the rehearsal dinner. Richard from Twisted Fork provided us with a delicious cake to serve 100 and also always made himself available to speak to me about the details. Because of Rocky Top's vast experience catering a wide variety of events, Kevin was very able to offer suggestions to us about timing of the evening events, flow of the guests between rooms, spacing of food, bar, appetizers etc. I would highly recommend Rocky Top for their expertise in helping plan and implement catering for a gathering. We were very pleased and would certainly use them again.

I would definitely recommend Rocky Top Catering for a wedding! They were extremely flexible with our particular needs. My husband and his family are from India, and so we wanted to include a variety of Indian dishes at our Wedding Reception. Rocky Top was very accommodating in trying new recipes and meeting our needs. We also used Rocky Top for a small brunch of sandwiches, cookies, fruit, and drinks earlier that day. It was delicious and went off without a hitch.

The best part about Rocky Top is that they made the wedding planning so seamless! They took care of the linens, and worked closely with the venue to ensure that the days leading up to the wedding were stress free.

I worked, in particular, with Kevin. He was helpful with food selection, as well as linen selection, place setting selection, and room design. He was also very easy to get in touch with.

Kevin and his extended team at Rocky Top did a fabulous job catering our wedding! We wanted people to walk away from our wedding satisfied and full, and they succeeded in this. The chef created so many tasty items (several unique to our wishes)! Everything from mini buffalo chicken pizzas and bite-sized fried green tomato BLTs, to black eyed peas fish tacos and the groom’s mother’s dirt cake recipe. Above the fabulous food, the staff working the actual event were the most professional, courteous, and friendly staff I’ve ever seen (and I work in events). Our guests made it a point to mention to us how attentive the staff was, and personally, they were always on top of checking if my groom and I needed or wanted food or beverage (but not overbearing). I highly recommend these guys for your event!

The team at Rocky Top did a great job with our wedding and reception. The food was delicious and abundant. Our guests really enjoyed the selection and variety. There were just a few items and ideas that we were unable to have because of existing vendor agreements, and that was disappointing, but in the end did not affect our enjoyment of the evening or the experience our guests had. I will say that having spoken with many local vendors, Rocky Top had great pricing rates for the excellent level of services provided. I highly recommend any bride speak with them before choosing your vendor!

Working with Kevin at Rocky Top Hospitality was one of the highlights of my wedding. He helped me tremendously. My guests were very impressed with the food some even told me that it was the best that they'd ever had! Kevin was great to work with, he gave me so much advice that I'm not sure what I would have done without him. He made sure to have extra meetings with me and my mom and went the extra mile when our venue didn't have a working kitchen. Kevin helped me with other vendors as well. We went with all of his recommendations and I was very happy with the outcome. I strongly recommend working with Rocky Top Catering and especially Keven Dehimer.

We chose the drop-off buffet package for our small at-home wedding (60 people) in Durham, NC. This entailed one meeting at the Rocky Top location (which we may have done over the phone if we wanted I bet) where we discussed the options and details with Rocky Top staff. Our contact was very nice and helpful, but did not explain everything in detail. I like to hear about everything that is available or provided, because sometimes it is hard to extract all of that information from a website. To give an example, until the end of our discussion when I randomly brought up tableware, our staff member did not mention that disposable cups, forks, napkins, plates, etc.. were included. And I was going to buy those things that day online! Good thing it came up, because they weren't going to tell me if I wasn't asking. Anyway, the actual day came out great. They delivered to our location 45 min away without a hitch and set up everything. Everything was disposable except for the giant drink coolers (which they told us they were going to pick up but have not three weeks later, I guess we keep them?) The food was plentiful and we made some good choices and some ok ones. Asparagus was not incredibly flavorful although prettily wrapped. The chicken pasta was good, and the salmon roulade was excellent. The gorgonzola pear salad was excellent, too. Some people liked the biscuits and some people didn't so much. The risotto was NOT risotto, more like regular rice, but it tasted ok. Overall, we were happy with the food which was the most important part.

Our reception site was at 1705Prime. Kathy White, the catering director, was a delight to work with. The prices were quite reasonable, and the food was phenomenal! We started with passed hor d'oeuvres, while guests were arriving. Between us, my fiancé and I were only able to try two of the four selections, including a butternut squash soup shooter that was sooooo good. (I got many requests for the recipe…as if I would know it!). Dinner was surf and turf …filet mignon and crabcake. It was amazing. In addition, both my fiancé and I really enjoy artisan cheeses, and so, in lieu of a groom’s cake, Kathy had made up a beautiful “tower” with four kinds of cheeses plus a fig loaf, dates, nuts, grapes, and herbs. It was spectacular. The only complication was the next wedding reception party arrived early so we were moved along quickly to vacate the place (15 minutes ahead of schedule).

The day of the wedding they made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy the day. They made sure that anything we needed was taken care of along with checking in throughout the night. When I said that I didn't get to eat one of the hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour they brought me a plate of them. The only thing I would suggest is for the servers to know what they are serving. I had one tell me that they didn't know what an hors d'oeuvres was on their plate was which is a little frustrating since I know but my guests might not have.

The room was flipped for over 100 guests in less than 40 minutes. The waiters were EXCELLENT. It's like they could read our minds. The guests are still talking about the service and food. We truly felt like a king an queen on our day. Great work!

Rocky Top Catering (also known as 1705 Prime) is a perfect balance of value and quality. Their prices are reasonable, and their food is both tasty and appropriate to a wide range of audiences (read: my "country" relatives liked it as much as my "city" friends).

Their menu is extensive, offering you lots of options beyond the typical wedding fare (because who really wants vegetables and a vat of ranch dressing!?). Their event coordinator is very sharp. She'll work with your budget while still giving you an impressive menu. We did food stations, and they were a huge hit.

Also, Rocky Top lets you buy your own alcohol, which is a good way to save money. Plus, unlike other caterers who I talked to about bringing my own alcohol, Rocky Top didn't make me provide ice, coolers, or anything else - they had that all covered.

They also handled my rentals, which was very convenient. They just pass through the cost from the rental company, but as the bride, you don't have to worry about coordinating delivery, payment, etc. because Rocky Top deals with all of that as part of the catering service.

My only issue was that my day-of event coordinator was not nearly as sharp as Kathy, but everything went off without a hitch, so I'm not complaining.

What a beautiful, intimate venue! These are words I heard a million times from my guests. My experience was phenomenal. Jenn was so easy to work with and took care of everything. It helped me to fell so relaxed and taken care of on my wedding day. In addition to the beautiful space and detail-oriented staff, the food was both delicious and elegantly displayed. Definitely add the shrimp and grits to your cocktail hour!

This establishment was professional from start to finish. From the consultations at the beginning to the excellent service at the end. It was difficult to schedule food tastings, and the biweekly tastings did not offer all of the wonderful items listed on the menu. Although, the food I was lucky enough to try was truly exceptional!!

1705 did my catering for my wedding and besides being kind of moved from person in charge they were great. They have wonderful food, provide free plastic (which is great because nothing to break), and make the bride and groom a special plate. I really enjoyed them and I would have to say that the bartenders were fantastic. I highly recommend the scalloped potatoes.

Rocky Top Hospitality was the way to go for us. We were doing the wedding on a budget and by ourselves. They helped so much with the Catering and the rentals.

Kevin and his team were professional and diligent to our needs. I would recommend them or any event!

I had a lot of trouble with 1705 Prime’s organizational skills. They were reasonably priced, but we had to deal with a lot of stress with this vendor. We were planning a Duke Gardens wedding from NYC and, while every other vendor knew how to work with an out of town bride and groom, they seemed befuddled by it and blamed us for their confusion. I attempted to contact Kevin to figure out what the steps usually are so we could make sure to hit them on each trip (how many meetings there typically are, when we decide what, etc), but it seemed he preferred to do certain things more last minute (which we couldn’t do b/c we were living in NYC). He would give us half-true information and later assume we knew details we did not. He was terrible at letting us know what to expect to the point where, only about a month before the wedding, we had to stop corresponding with him and work with another point of contact. Frankly, that was not that much better - the planning was still confusing - but at least they were trying to make things better by giving us another point of contact when the relationship with Kevin had disintegrated. Laurie tried to be helpful but she was not who we were mainly in touch with. We had a great planner who kept us calm when 1705 would send short, nebulous emails that demonstrated such a profound misunderstanding of - and lack of attention to - our questions and concerns that it almost seemed purposeful.

Now, that being said, the team they sent the day of was FANTASTIC and the food was very good. After the wedding, my husband and I realized that the management was a mess, but the staff was excellent. I had worked with Kathy at the beginning of our relationship with 1705, but she took a leave and we were re-assigned to Kevin. Kathy is actually who gave us our proposal, told us about the tasting and answered all my initial questions about full service catering through 1705 Prime. The difference in Kevin’s skills was apparent immediately. While Kathy had a knack for efficiently explaining things, Kevin seemed almost panicked by questions. However, we were blessed to have Kathy return and be our on-site person the day of and she was a breath of fresh air. We also had Seth, who was there to help me and my husband. He brought us hors d'oeuvres during a break in our post ceremony photo shoot, and served us at dinner so we could be sure to eat. He brought us drinks and made sure basically that we had whatever we needed. Seth was no small part of why we were one of the few couples who actually got to EAT at our wedding! Which was especially great, because we were able to dance and drink all night with our guests without being weak and worn out (our party had a lot of dancing). We also had an amazing bartender - Cole - who was pleasant and fun with the guests and helped us figure out when it was time to make a quick wine run to keep the party going. He was actually there at the tasting we did at 1705 where we signed our contract and we liked him a lot but forgot to ask his name. On our way home we kicked ourselves for not getting his name because we wanted to request him for the day-of, but it worked out anyway!
Honestly, the 1705 day of staff seriously outshines the management. If we could judge 1705 prime for only those we dealt with the day of, they would have our highest regard. However the planning was disorganized, confusing, and stressful. Almost as if the management didn’t want you to ask questions or have an opinion, just shut up and let them do things their way. I expected to work with my vendors to create a special day, but they were the ONLY vendor who didn’t understand how to establish that working relationship. Thank God for their day of team. The 5 stars for service is based on their hard work that day. Hopefully the rest of 1705 Prime can take a lesson from Kathy, Seth, and Cole.
