  • Rockwoods handled my daughter's wedding reception beautifully! Every interaction with staff leading up to the event was very pleasant, and on the big day they took care of everything so we had to worry about nothing! Many guests commented on the delicious food and I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. Their prices are very reasonable, especially for all the personal attention you get. Fantastic!
