About Us


Parkway Banquets is an incredible waterside venue located in Ingleside, Illinois, about halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee in Lake County, IL. With over 500 5-star reviews on social media, it boasts a waterfront view from amazing picture windows! Located right next to the forest preserve, the outdoor surroundings complement the romantic day. Couples can celebrate both their ceremony and reception here, making it a versatile and accommodating place for any milestone moment.

Facilities and Capacity

Situated along the edge of beautiful Long Lake, this elegant property provides elegance secluded and bathed in nature for couples and their guests to enjoy. For the ceremony, the couple and their friends and family will gather in the only outdoor, covered tented area in the area - rain or shine! Here, white chairs are arranged for everyone to sit and watch as the couple says ‘I do’ and exchanges rings.

A light breeze drifts through on warm summer afternoons, and on a chilly day, the area can be heated and enclosed from wind or rain. Parkway Banquets will decorate the ceremony to match the couple's chosen decor. After the iconic moment has been sealed, the happy couple and their guests will make their way directly inside to the incredble reception area overlooking the lakefront.

With large windows letting in ample light and affording views of the waterway, the reception area exudes a relaxing ambiance. As the evening moves on and the festivities continue, the lit-up dance floor gets the party rockin'! Most common comment by guests" "This is the BEST wedding I have ever been to!!!"
