The Best Cellar is our favorite restaurant in Blowing Rock where we have dined many times and try to visit whenever we are in the area. Located in the picturesque Ragged Garden Inn, they offer a nice variety of entrees including excellent steaks, poultry and fish along with a good selection of wines. They also have a nice selection of... More

We love the Best Cellar. Been going there for many years now. We love the location in the Ragged Gardens Inn. We can walk there from our hotel. The food is always delicious no matter what you get. The service is impeccable. See you next October!

Being a "local", I have occasion to dine at the Best Cellar several times a year. The setting is hard to beat! You dine in the large rooms of an old mansion in the middle of town. Don't wear your cut offs and tee shirt in here, but casual is always okay(you'll see quite a few in a sport coat.... More

We stayed next door at the Meadowbook Hotel and felt like a light supper in a historic location. The inn and restaurant was very historic with the staff very happy to tell us about the home's past. We were promptly seated on a Sunday night. The waitresses were very pleasant. The decor nice. The lighting, was low making it a... More

When you walk through the creaky front door you are not sure what to expect. Is this a bed and breakfast....an old house.....or a restaurant? Walk up a few steps and you feel the warmth of the atmosphere right away. The fireplace is going, comfortable chairs and couches are waiting to be sat in. Sit back and enjoy conversation with...

Food and wine selection was very good and service was spot-on. Reserve the table in the wine cellar for a special evening, but reserve early as they only seat there once or twice per evening.

We stayed at the wonderful inn and were excited about trying the restaurant the first night after a harrowing trip in the fog on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The atmosphere and service was wonderful. The food was the worse we had on our whole trip and the most expensive. Both the lamb and the short ribs were grisly and tough.... More

I am always wary of revisiting a place I had raved about before, as I have been left disappointed in the past. That was certainly not the case at the Best Cellar. Another great experience at my favorite restaurant in Blowing Rock. We arrived at our reservation time but our reservations had been lost. Although they were booked they were... More

My boyfriend and I had the opportunity to dine here on the last night of a week long vacation in Blowing Rock. The atmosphere is great for date night and the menu is very diverse (steak, duck, lamb, scallops, chicken, etc). We shared a crab cake appetizer that we both enjoyed. My Filet Oscar was amazing and my boyfriend loved... More

We have been going to Best Cellar for years but this visit was the first in about two years. This trip was definitely not what we were accustomed to for a finer restaurant. Although we did have a good waitress, everything else seemed to be "way off". The hostess was rude and most of the food was just not good... More
