Lovely setting, accommodating service, better than average food.

Overall, a very good experience. As always, the grounds were absolutely beautiful. We had reservations on the porch on a Friday evening for their weekly live music on the front lawn.

We arrived early, about 5:30, without reservations. The hostess did not hesitate and seated us by the window over looking a "guest only" courtyard. There were no other patrons so service was fast although I felt as though we were bothering the server. Because we were the only ones there until about 6 it was very quiet allowing us to... More

Everything here is fabulous! We ate here with a group of fabulous friends and everything we ate was incredible! Ordered a sample of every dessert and it was all soooo good.

Attended a birthday party for 16 people in the lower level cellar. Food was delicious, staff super friendly. We loved it. They also have a small private room with a wine cellar theme. Great place for a special occasion

Excellent server, excellent food!!! We went their to celebrate our wedding anniversary, so it was a special dinner for us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for that special occasion. We ate dinner outside on the front porch, which was very pleasant.

This was a first trip for us to both the Friday Night Outdoor Concert Series and dinner. Both were excellent. Our dinner was beautifully prepared. Wine choices were nice. We even had dessert (banana pie) which was out of this world. Our server was excellent and showed great attention to detail. There are so many dining choices in Blowing Rock.... More

We have eaten at the Best Cellar on several occasions but this was the nicest experience yet. Our hostess, Martha, gave us a wonderful seat on the front porch with a full view of the beautiful garden. She brought my wife a wrap because the evening turned a little cool. The server, Lou, took excellent care of our dining needs... More

I chose to eat here for this year's Blowing Rock restaurant week and I am thrilled with my decision. The pre-fixe menu was delicious and a great deal for thirty dollars. I had the french onion soup, crab cakes, and pecan pie. The food was delicious and left me eager to try the other items on the menu! Great location,... More

I needed a special place for a small dinner gathering for my husbands's birthday. Missy at Best Cellar arranged for us to use one of their smaller dining rooms. When my husband and I arrived, everyone else was already there with wine ready for a toast. The hostess did not give any hint that our visit was anything other than... More
