Fantastic Supper in the Smokies

We dined with friends on December 30th celebrating the holidays and a birthday. The Best Cellar is a comfortable B&B/Lodge atmosphere with 5 Star food and service. I especially was delighted with the Roast Duck!!! To die for. We'll be back.

John was an excellent waiter and the food here did not disappoint. Both the filet and the chicken were excellent, but the vegetables were equally prepared. Not a single aspect of this meal could have been improved. It's nice to eat in a fine restaurant and see locals sitting around chatting with one another about their holidays. This sweet restaurant...

Ate here years ago. Loved it then, loved it now. Had the salmon special. It was great! Just a cozy place to eat and relax. Fireplace to have a pre or post dinner cocktail. Actually stayed at the Inn we liked it so much.

We had a 7:00 reservation and were seated promptly. Our server came and took a drink order. We had a Hendricks and Fever Tree Ginger Beer to start. The restaurant was very pretty and festively decorated. For dinner we both ordered a Caesar Salad and my wife had the seared Ahi with Hoisin for entree and I had the Lamb... More

Based on several suggestions from locals and friends about where to dine in Blowing Rock, we made reservations at The Best Cellar for our late afternoon Thanksgiving dinner. It was a terrific choice. We arrived on time for our reservation and checked in with the hostess. Our table was being prepped and she said it would be a few minutes.... More

We went to the restaurant for Thanksgiving Day dinner and am SO GLAD we did. From our initial entrance into the establishment until we left about 2 hours later we did not find any fault. The employees, while excellent were still not as 'excellent' as the dinner. We had the traditional Turkey Dinner complete with all the 'fixins'. We could... More

We have been to the Best Cellar a number of times and have always enjoyed it. So we brought our friends visiting from Texas here and were disappointed. The service was adequate and the food was adequate but I expect more for the reputation and the price. I had the Sea Scallops and I can't remember what the rest of... More

Sizable menu and a nice wine list. Wait staff is efficient and although a bit claustrophobic, the atmosphere is generally nice. If you come in the summer, consider dining on the terrace for an even better experience.

4 of us had dinner at this cool venue, and were very satisfied with the meal! Nice wine selection also. Go during a mild season and sit on the deck for people watching!
