Wonderful experience!! Greeted nicely; wait staff-Sally was wonderful; atmosphere was beautiful; & food was phenomenal. My husband had the fillet oscar & I had the roast duck. Absolutely wonderful. Prepared and paired with great sauces. We have been married 28 years and come to Blowing Rock frequently. This was our first time at the Best Cellar (due to trying to... More

On the last evening of our trip to Blowing Rock we tried the Best Cellar for a nice dinner. I tried the Grouper and my wife tried the Pork Medallions. For starters they bring salad and bread. The salad was fresh and the bread very good! Then my entree Grouper with Gouda sauce was amazing and my wife's pork medallions... More

September 1, beautiful night, porch dining romantic. We ordered five appetizers and one rib-eye. Each worse than the prior. Steak was thin and fatty, onion soup too cheezy, butternut squash too sweet and watery. Kale salad OK. Had to wait forever to get bill-had to go into kitchen to find waiter (who couldn't be found). I'm a spoiled NY and... More

On August 18, we had our 35th Anniversary dinner at The Best Cellar. From the time we entered the restaurant we were treated as special guests. After being seated at a lovely window table, our server John provided information, courtesy, and service at the highest level. With his input, we had the roast duck. It was the best duck we've...

I had dinner on the porch at this beautiful restaurant/inn with my friends. The atmosphere was great, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. Together the four of us had dishes of grouper, scallops, and crab cakes. Even the sides were good. Too bad I couldn't clean my plate; it was more than I could eat. This restaurant... More

We couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Michael, our waiter was so helpful in our food choices and allowing us to leisurely take our time as it was a special night for the two of us. We will definitely return to The Best Cellar should we be in the area again. It's worth the trip.

We read reviews for many places in town and many seemed to be almost the same. This one stood out from the rest and we were glad that we tried it. Our waitress, Corey, also made the experience great. She know the menu and helped us select the best options given what we were looking for. We had a nice... More

We have dined at the Best Cellar a number of times in past years and had very enjoyable meals. Our meal this time was good, but probably over-priced. There are many good places to dine in Blowing Rock and this is one. However, there are others just as good but more reasonably priced.

I remember this when it was truly excellent with an exciting menu and excellent food. Since moving to this location, the food is very ordinary and only average. Good thing is that there are other local restaurants that have taken over its previous status

Great service Here is a sample of what we ordered and the costs Diner One - Granny Martini (Stoli vodka, sour apple schnapps, pineapple juice), Caprese pizza (crunchy and flavorful), beef shortribs (so tender it falls apart in your mouth) with potatoes, baked acorn squash (this is...
