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

We had a wonderful meal here. The pork special with the blueberry barbecue sauce glaze was superb! My only complain was that we were seated on the porch and were too cold. It would have been perfect had they had some kind of portable heating system outside ... Or maybe even just some cozy throws. Brrrr! But overall, we had... More

Came to Blowingrock to have a nice dinner to start the new year. Was looking for something unusual and personal. Definitely found it at the best cellar . The service was impeccable, surpassed only by the scrumptious meal. The setting of our table overlooking the garden was very romantic and made for a wonderful evening. The North Carolina black grouper... 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
