      "...For the last 7 years, we have held our annual Duke Energy United Way golf tournament at Rock Barn... We have found the facilities, service and staff at Rock Barn to be exceptional each year.  The team I worked with to plan and execute our event was fantastic.  From the lodging to the catering and banquet services, to the business office and the golf staff - everyone was top notch. They all really made my job easy and I want to pass along sincere thanks on behalf of myself and the rest of the Duke Energy team."

      "... the Christmas Party of 2013 was a success.  Better than any that we have ever had!  Comments on the food were fantastic.  We agreed it was the best food we have eaten (including food at) other establishments and the service was superb.  We couldn't have asked for anything better."

      "Everything went beautifully at our corporate event last night.  As I walked out of the building with my vice president, he commented on how delicious the food was and indicated that he was well pleased with everything.  Your staff was very attentive and yet not intrusive in any way.  Each one of them were friendly and gave me the impression they really enjoyed serving us.  The ambiance of the banquet room was perfect for that particular event which encouraged the group to relax and mingle. I look forward to working with you again."

      "Flame Deal, Director of Banquets & Events, along with her off-site catering team, did an outstanding job for our Women’s Leadership Conference at the 74 South Event Venue at Moretz Mills. They rolled out the red carpet for our 340 women and made them feel special (& full!) from the beautiful breakfast display, salad, soup & assorted wraps buffet for lunch, the vast assortment of desserts, to the cheese & fruit display for our Conference Reception. Many conference attendees even took it upon themselves to compliment the quality of the food and service on their post-conference surveys. Though their first experience as a staff with off-site catering, Flame’s long resume of catering experience and her attentiveness to our specific needs during the planning process put our committee at ease. In hindsight, you’d think they had been doing off-site jobs for years! Thank you Rock Barn team for your partnership on this event!"

    • "Food was great and the service was fantastic!  You have a very attentive wait staff.  They approached me several times to see how things were going and if I needed anything.  When I did need them and would look around, they noticed and came directly over to ask if they were needed.  I have served in the event planning business and so I very much appreciate this attention to detail.  I would say you all exceeded my expectations."

      "The staff at Rock Barn have always been extremely flexible and receptive to our many requests.  We had budget restrictions, timing issues and dietary requirements to meet - each of which would have been an interesting challenge on its own, but combined was a lot to handle.  Yet, the staff made it look easy and did so with a smile.  I really appreciate the extra effort that Rock Barn offers every time we work on a project together."
