I have been dining at the Best Cellar for twenty-plus years, first at their former location and more recently in downtown Blowing Rock. The food has consistently been very good and the waitstaff is excellent.

My wife and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at this restaurant and were seated in the cozy cellar dining room with several other happy diners. I had the duck, my wife had the rib eye, and my wife's sister Oysters Rockefeller and filet mignon (I was paying!) and all the meals were perfect. The menu featured a wide variety... More

Great food with generous portions. Very relaxing atmosphere and right off Main Street. Staff was superb. Tables outside are wonderful and good for quiet conversation! Highly recommend.

Rustic Old "Ragged Inn" Ambience good Service good Lamb chop were obviously not fresh but frozen and not properly thawed. Medium rare was rare and cold after reheat not much better. Oyster/ Spinach appetizer was very good but entrees disappointing.

Very pleasant setting, varied and reasonably priced wine list. Our table had several different seafood dishes, all quite good. These pluses seriously compromised by indifferent and, towards the end of the evening, seriously slow service, without apology or any word of explanation, just a stony stare.

We decided to eat here because my finance had a dinner here with his co workers a few months back and said it was good. So I figured this would be a nice meal for us. Not so much on our visit. Maybe they just had an off night. Or the waiter was new... I don't know but it wasnt... More

This is the second time we ate dinner here. Friends invited us out and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent. Had the seafood sampler. One nitpick was the oyster Rockefeller was a too cheesy. I ordered the duck and it was the best I have had in years. My wife ordered the trout and there was nothing left on... More

My wife and I celebrated our 39th Wedding Anniversary at the Inn at Ragged Gardens in Blowing Rock which is an incredible place and I reviewed earlier. The restaurant at the Inn, Best Cellars, is the best! The ambience was perfect, wine selection excellent, service wonderful, and most importantly the food incredible! I highly recommend the Bone - in Rib... More

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My crispy duck was excellent, as was her filet mignon. The service was also top notch. Highly recommended.

Always a great meal and excellent service. Interesting menu. I had scallops. Asked to have them cut in half and seared--no problem. Our party had grouper and duck. Both very good.
