So we had our wedding ceremony here and it was perfect! The staff was so nice and the food was so good!! It was perfect because it was the perfect setting for us and our guests, right on the water. The fact that we didn’t have to do anything but show up was amazing. The package we choose we got a DJ, a photographer, and a great cake! I was already stressing about everything else, so to know that the venue was taking care of and the decor and everything else was perfect! Jerry and Cathy were the best! They made sure we had everything we wanted and worked great with us when we wanted to bring in our own stuff! I would recommend this place for anybody looking to book their wedding! A huge thank you from the Santiago’s

My husband and I had our wedding reception here at Parkway and it was by far the best decision we made! Jerry and his team worked so hard to give us the exact vison we wanted on our special day! The place came together perfectly with extra decorations and seat covers for no extra cost! He really worked hard to give us exactly what we wanted on our day! We would highly recommend having your wedding reception here! We are very grateful for such an amazing day!

I was so happy to have had our ceremony and reception at parkway. Jerry and his team were amazing to work with! I had numerous questions, and they answered all of them very quickly and even added suggestions. We even had some last minute seating changes, and those got done with no issue. You can’t beat the value and location of this venue. Also, the professionalism, friendliness, and experience of all staff. The food was delicious, and their list of recommended vendors could not have been better. All of our vendors were recommended by Jerry, and we were so happy! My parents renewed their vows at this very location 20 years ago, and I was so happy to have had such an amazing experience at my very own wedding. I cannot recommend this location or this team enough!

Such an amazing man! Parkway banquets was the only place my now husband and I looked at for our wedding, what sold us aside from the amazing looks of the place was how the owner listened to us and gave us suggestions and did not take it personally if we did not take One of his suggestions.
We were over an hour late to the reception and as soon as Jerry saw that we were late he turned dinner down so we would still have a hot and fresh meal when we finally showed up, I have nothing but amazing things to say about not only Jerry but about Parkway banquets!

I can not get over how grateful I am for choosing Parkway as our wedding venue. Cathy & Jerry have been nothing but absolutely amazing through all of this. The past 7 months with the virus going on no one really knew what was going to happen. Jerry, Cathy and the parkway staff made sure our wedding was absolutely beautiful and made sure our family and friends were safe through the ceremony and reception. Cathy helped us pick out menu options, color schemes and just everything. She helped with ideas and ways to make things better. The wedding looked beyond beautiful. I can not thank you guys enough for being so helpful through all of this. We truly appreciate everything you guys have done for us. Making this the wedding we will never forget. Thank you! The food was amazing too!

Just had our wedding here this weekend, and had a great time under all covid-19 circumstances. The venue was very helpful with decorating with our personal touches, worked well with our DJ, the food was great and got good compliments from our guests that it was good. We even got to take home the leftovers which is nice. There was no surprising costs and was at a reasonable price as well. Reception hall was decorated perfectly and more then I expected to look. Bartender was great and she ran the whole day herself and checked in on everyone as well. The staff was great and helpful. Thank you for such a memorable night that me and my husband, as well as our family and friends will forever remember!

From our groom, Dan, via email 7.26.20: 5 STARS!
I would like to take a moment to thank each of you for everything you did to make our wedding this past Sunday a special occasion for us, especially considering this pandemic has forced events like weddings to be anything but business as usual.
Jerry (owner), I had many people tell me how much they loved the setting, views of the lake and the venue itself. Even family members of mine that are not as big of fans of the color orange (as my bride and I are) commented on how nicely everything blended together and how tasteful the look of the place was, from the lighting to the centerpieces. There was even a guest (that will remain nameless) who wanted to take (your) centerpieces home to keep for herself! I had many compliments on the food as well, and we appreciate the items you added to the buffet, as those ended up being the ones that we enjoyed most! Personally, it meant a lot to me to know I could have peace of mind that the whole day would be captured perfectly.
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!
From guest 'AB Entertainment' on Google My Business 2.8.20: 5 STARS!
My wife and I we’re attending a friends wedding at Parkway. I’m old and have been to many weddings. Parkway ranks number three, only because the top two were in exotic locations (not really in the same category). I talked to the owner that night and he knows what it takes to put on a wonderful event for this type of celebration. Over thirty years of doing this.The food was beyond excellent and yes there was plenty for seconds and even thirds. The dance floor was large and the views of the water are the cherry on top. I have never written a review of any kind, but feel compelled to share this place with anyone considering a large or small event.That’s how much this place is worth the recommendation. You will not be disappointed in any way.

We had our Oct 2019 reception at Parkway Salon in Round Lake and even our guests keep saying "Wow!" The hall was large and comfortable with back lighting that set the mood. The food was fabulous and the sweets table was a huge hit! Jerry is the hall manager and is a personable, knowledgeable man who has been in the wedding industry for a long time. If you need other vendors, he's got connections to the best of the best. Jerry went above and beyond for us and we are so grateful we chose Parkway Salon.

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!

Jerry the owner of Parkway and his staff did an excellent job of making my daughters wedding so memorable.

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!

From our bride, Stephanie, on Wedding Wire 9.27.19: 5 STARS!
Best wedding venue! Wish I could rate Parkway more than 5 stars! 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 hors 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 looks nicer. My guests are still talking about how perfect and wonderful everything was and my wedding was on September 1st. It’s obvious that they take a lot of pride in what they do at Parkway and they let you really decide on how you want things so it’s truly your day. It was such a simple stress free process. I can go on forever. I highly recommend Parkway Banquets.
From our bride, Courtney, on The Knot 9.25.19: 5 STARS!
Parkway Banquets in Ingleside was absolutely amazing! Jerry and his staff were phenomenal and helped with the planning along the way. The food was amazing and they had items like center pieces and all the table and chair stuff along with lighting on sight so that was a lot less that we had to have done ourselves. Jerry was very helpful and lead my husband and I in the right direction for the remainder of the items we needed such as DJ, photographer and florist and he has all of his preferred vendors on his website easy to find.
From our bride, Stephanie, on Facebook 9.19.19: 5 STARS!
Had my wedding at Parkway Banquets on September 1st. They went way above and beyond what I expected. It’s pretty much a one stop shop. They venue was beautiful and everything was included from vendors, to centerpieces, photo booth, seat covers, etc. Went with buffet so plenty of variety of foods for all guests and it was so delicious. Their recommended vendors were all fabulous. Jerry, Michelle, and Kathy made everyone especially me the bride feel so comfortable and special. They made the planning so simple that I was asking myself shouldn’t I be doing something, but it was all taken care of. Everything I brought was set up and ready to go. My guests are still talking about how perfect everything was. We chose not to do a rehearsal, but Jerry did a walk through with us so we knew what to expect. With all these amazing things it’s so reasonably priced. Almost forgot to mention the amazing view of the lake from inside also. I highly recommend Parkway Banquets if you’re looking for a venue!! Thanks for making my day perfect and so special!!
From our groom, John, on The Knot 9.12.19: 5 STARS!
My bride and I went to a few places then went to a bridal shower at Parkway. Right from the start ,asking ? of the staff, talking to Jerry,the owner, or the view of the lake. We were sold and booked with Parkway. Weddings were suppose to be stressful,but Jerry and his staff kept in touch and sent us reminders every step of the way. Seemed like all we had to do was ask and Parkway made it happen. Even the day of the wedding. We were well rehearsed everything went so smooth. All I can say is All I had to worry about was enjoying family and friends and especially my bride. Oh and all the guests couldn't help but say how great the food was and how they enjoyed the whole evening. Thanks Jerry and staff of the Parkway for our special day

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. Thank-you for helping us host our friends and family.

My sister got married and had her reception at Parkway banquets in ingleside. I was blown away at the every detail that was met. Jerry assisted my sister and her groom in making her wedding a very memorable and successful event and was pleased to help all of the bridal party and guests too. It was embarrassing but I misplaced my cell phone and he would not stop looking until it was found. The food was very well prepared and we all enjoyed the buffet. The staff was friendly and helpful. This was a very magical and memorable event for all involved and I would highly encourage someone looking for a venue to check this place out. It’s on the lake which made a great place for sunset pictures.

From our bride, Heather, on WeddingWire 8.7.19: 5 STARS!
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 by myself. This team is amazing to work with and I will recommend them to everyone and anyone!

My husband and I got married at Parkway banquets on July 5, 2019. We had a National Park themed wedding using the ultimate fantasy packaged offered. The package included everything for our wedding (aside of our attire and any little personal touches you may want). Even though the DJ, cake, and photographer were included we still got to choose between a decent selection of each, and more importantly we still got to taste all of the vendor’s delicious wedding cakes! Jerry and Cathy were ALWAYS there when I need reassurance on an idea or help with something in general. Cathy was the absolute biggest help (besides my mom and sister!) during the whole year long planning process. She ensured that everything I had envisioned was done and done better at than I could have dreamed. The ceremony space was beautiful and the guidance offered by Jerry to our first time officiant was very helpful. Michelle (the bar tender) always made sure that Chris and I’s glasses were full and treated us like royalty the entire evening. The food, down to the garlic bread, was all fantastic and we were very grateful for leftovers we were sent home with! All in all I don’t think we could have found a more perfect place for our wedding, and I seriously don’t think a better job could have been done anywhere else. Thank you everyone for making our wedding dream come true ❤️❤️

I had my wedding at Parkway Banquets in June 2018 and still reflect on that day as one of the best days of my life. Having been in the wedding industry, I was very particular about what we wanted and Jerry understood our wants from day one. I truly believe Jerry, Michelle and Cathy are the reason it was so perfect. Even a year later, we talk about how much fun we had, the fact that we felt zero stress, and how beautiful everything looked! We still get compliments on our wedding with having enough seats for guests, the flow of the wedding, the location of being on the lake, and the amazing food they served! Jerry and his entire team made the planning process so easy, day of execution seamless and the memories lasting forever. I’d highly recommend having any celebration at Parkway! They’ll take care of you like family!

This review comes long overdue, as our wedding took place in October. We can not give enough thanks to Jerry and his staff, and especially Cathy! Planning, decorating, colors, arrangements, seating, food menu, finding a DJ and Photographer, our amazing cake, you name it- they were there for us! They blew our expectations away! Above and beyond what we could have asked for! Jerry and Cathy were always a phone call or message away. Without those two, we could not have had such a wonderful time because we would have been stressing on all the details! There are not enough words to express our thanks for everything they did for us! I mean, here we are 3 months later and we are still hearing what a great evening it was from our friends and family! Thank you guys!!! Jaime & Nova Navarro
From Lynn on The Knot 1/12/19: 5 STARS!
TEN STARS! I collected info from a dozen venues. Parkway had the best prices and the best reviews re: food, helpful friendly owner/staff, organization skills, flexibility, etc. Jerry Ming, the owner was a dream to work with. He thought of everything. He connected us with the best DJ, cake maker, and photographer. I (mom) worried more than bride (laid back) & he assured everything would be perfect and it was. Didn’t have to make table or venue decor-just had to pick out from their numerous ideas; they have stock rooms of supplies. Saved $. We selected buffet. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, the meats were amazing! All were shocked at variety, # of choices, dessert table, appetizers, omg so much food! I couldn’t believe they wrapped up leftovers and sent them home. We fed so many guests in our home the days following wedding! Accommodated last minute crisis’s, headcount changes, etc. the parkway salon is gorgeous. Had ceremony and reception both held there. It was so beautiful. Dance floor huge. Plenty of room. Bridal ready room perfecto! All of the staff catered to our guests. Everyone gave positive feedback as they hugged me before leaving. My oldest daughters wedding reception was elsewhere in crystal lake. They were 5 stars. Parkway is 10 stars. They went above and beyond for every thing.

My parents had another ‘wedding’ for me and my husband on Sunday October 28, 2018 at Parkway. We originally were married in Florida a month ago and they wanted to have another celebration for us so the friends and family that couldn’t attend in Florida would be able to see us get married. There was no comparison between the events! Jerry @ Parkway and his staff went WAY ABOVE and beyond to make my event amazing! My mother told them about everything that went wrong in Florida and Jerry told her “you don’t have to worry, I’ll take care of everything”. He is not a liar! The food was great, the decor was beautiful but I cannot say enough about the staff. They were amazing! So helpful and attentive!!! The bartender (I think her name was Michelle) made sure my husband and I were taken care of to the fullest. She came to our table and checked on us several times throughout the night. She kept all of the guests extremely happy (and glasses full!) and she had such a wonderful demeanor. My parents had their 25th anniversary party there a few years ago and I remember the event being just as wonderful. Jerry and his staff know how to put on an event and they made us feel so incredibly special and important. Thanks Jerry!!

Jerry and his staff were truly the Best! everything was perfect. He made sure all went smoothly and his staff was amazing! They absolutely were efficient, personable and the nicest people!
We chose the food for the buffet and his staff nailed it! everything was delicious! he even had the wedding cake from Florida duplicated and remade because the Florida bakery had not decorated it correctly.
DO NOT HESITATE to have your event here! You will be delighted.
Thank you to Jerry and his staff for making this a beautiful day!

We're very happy that we chose this facility, we highly recommend it to everyone! Jerry went above and beyond with helpful suggestions and support, which was very helpful during our stressful time of planning and carrying out the wedding. The food was excellent, the facility itself was very accommodating! Over the months that we got to know him, Jerry became like a part of the family. And with the personal care that we received, we felt part of the Parkway family too. :)

From the first day we visited Parkway (nearly two years ago), this was the most obvious choice for our wedding/reception venue. We immediately felt comfortable with Jerry and team. His assistant Michelle made sure that as the bride I felt calm and collected immediately upon arrival. Further into the night guest raved about the food and music (special shout out to Dan with I Wed Solutions!). Because we had so many guests traveling far for our wedding, it was so important to my husband and I to throw them a party they would absolutely love. The staff at Parkway made this the most perfect celebration for everyone. Jerry and his team are true professionals and went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you all!

Wedding of my dreams
There aren't enough words in the world to explain how awesome Parkway Banquets is. We met Jerry after seeing a handful of halls and feeling stressed. It is hard now a days to find a hall for a decent price with everything you need included without feel ripped off. We loved his honesty and realness he brought to the table. He had the bells and whistle without charging a fortune. He made the process of finding a banquet all very calming. He works very hard to making sure you get what you want and really makes you feel like you matter.
I am a very OCD gal and Jerry did his best to make me calm throughout the whole process. He gave us the opportunity to get updates on how the construction was coming along and after months of waiting it turned out to be beautiful. The Salon is the perfect place for a big wedding.
On the day of our wedding, Jerry and his team were outstanding. Stephanie and Sondra were my life savers and helped me with the last minute things I needed done. They made sure that everything I wanted and needed were taken care of. The decorations were amazing, the ceremony was beautiful, the food was delicious, and reception was so much more. If you are looking for an amazing hall that doesn't charge you a fee for cake cutting, champagne toast, with amazing food and the best time of your life you have found your place. Parkway Banquets is the best place for a wedding!

The new Salon venue is so beautiful! Jerry was very helpful and really made everything as stress free as possible! Stephanie was also very helpful with making sure the tables and centerpieces were exactly how we wanted them! Thank you Parkway Banquets for making our day so special!

My wedding was so gorgeous and had so much fun, they cared for us so much and wanted to make sure everything would go perfectly on our special day. They have great spots for our pictures and even have a dock for us to walk out on. I highly recommend a later wedding to get that beautiful sunset in the background.

As mother of the bride I want to state, Jerry and staff of Parkway made planning this wedding a breeze. The choices were outstanding for decorations, photography, music and food. We live out of the area and had no difficulty with getting answers to our questions. We felt right at home in this beautiful venue. Parkway staff made every effort to make sure all our needs were met and we were satisfied. The whole event went off with out a single hitch. Kuddos to the whole staff. I would recommend Parkway for any event and not hesitate to return when given the chance.

Wonderful experience! Our guest couldn't stop talking about how good the food was and how great the staff was. We were so pleased with everything. We didn't have to worry about anything except to have fun. Love Jerry he is awesome!
From Bruce on Facebook 9/5/18: 5 STARS!
My daughter in law and Son picked Parkway Banquets and the location and attention to detail was excellent. They supported so much and the photographer was excellent as well - their suggestion also. The bar was well stocked and the staff could not have been more respectful and supportive! I only wish I'd brought more cash for the tip!
From Kimberly on Wedding Wire 9/2/18: 5 STARS!
All our guests enjoyed the venue and continually mentioned how good the food and service was. Very accommodating to food allergies. Most of all us the bride and groom loved every minute and didn't have to worry about anything except having fun!

We LOVE Parkway Banquets! Jerry, Cathy, Michelle and the entire staff made our special day absolutely perfect. From helping us find the package that fit our budget to recommending a bakery for our cake and making sure everyone in our wedding party was fully prepped, this is a beautiful and amazing location for weddings. Jerry even prepared our officiant and had no hidden costs, fees, or surprises. We are recommending this location to all our newly engaged friends. Everyone is super accommodating and made sure we were happy and Michelle (love her!) was able to keep myself and my mom calm minutes before walking up the aisle. She was also a wonderful bartender and kept checking in on myself and my new husband throughout the night. All my friends and family keep telling us how beautiful the venue is.

It's every bride's dream to have her wedding day go by perfectly. Well, Jerry, Cathy, Michelle and the entire staff at Parkway made this possible for me and my now husband, Brian. Jerry is totally experienced to deal with everything that came our way from helping our officiant find his place, to making sure everyone knew their place at the rehearsal and ceremony. We're SO glad we chose Parkway. This was my perfect wedding, with such a beautiful venue on the lake. Plus, it wasn't stupid expensive. There's a package for every budget and we found out that worked with ours, with no hidden fees or surprises. We are recommending this venue to all our newly engaged friends. Love this place, you cannot go wrong with Parkway.

Jerry and his staff went above and beyond with their dedication to and execution of making all our wedding dreams come true! From the day we booked our date, to the big day itself, everything was flawless! They're a well-oiled machine.
Jerry even gave us some insight to other vendors as well. I COULDN'T recommend him and Parkway enough!!

"Best Day Ever" does not even cover it. From the day I booked the venue leading up to my actual wedding day was quick and smooth. That's all thanks to Jerry for reassuring me that everything will be taken care. On the day of the wedding, people were surprised with how relaxed I was as the bride. Arriving to the venue, there was nothing to worry about because everything looked beautiful! Everything exceeded my expectations.. the Parkway team went above and beyond to ensure I have the best day ever!
From Laura on Wedding Wire 6/21/18: 5 STARS!
All in all this is the best venue in our area! We were married on 6/15/18. Their packages really allow for a smooth and easy wedding planning process. They make the research and meetings a breeze! Jerry is definitely a very busy guy, but always makes the time to speak with you, get things done, and questions answered. Cathy and the bartender (Michelle I think is her name, and also way more than just a bartender) were amazing to work with! They all help put your nerves/thoughts/concerns at ease. Overall a HUGE thumbs up and my husband and I highly recommend Parkway!
From Kelly on Facebook 6/15/18: 5 STARS!
I am so happy that we decided to have our wedding at Parkway! Jerry and Cathy were so helpful with everything. The room looked amazing and they are located right on Long Lake, so the water views were very pretty. I didn't have much to do, since they handle so much for you. The wedding cake, table decorations and even the chair covers are all included. If they don't have what you want, they'll get it. They really go above and beyond to make sure you're happy. I highly recommend checking this place out!
