We eat here every time we are in Blowing Rock! This time did not disappoint. The staff was phenomenal. Due to unforeseen issues we called about an hour before our reservation and asked if it could be pushed back 30 minutes, and they were so accommodating and said absolutely! The waitress was awesome...I wish I could remember her name. The... More

Being locals, we've eaten there on many occasions. The service is always excellent but of late, the food has been hit or miss. The ambience is excellent, the side sunroom of this old dwelling is the best seating area but the small bar is also quite nice. As stated, the food was much more consistent at one time but is...

We had a fabulous anniversary dinner here. It is a beautiful and cozy restaurant. Great service and great food. The best part of the night was their version of toffee bread pudding. Neither one of us love bread pudding, but had heard good things about it so we ordered it. It was AMAZING. I highly recommend the restaurant and definitely... More

I wanted to take my wife and son out for a special meal and Best Cellar was stellar! Caring service, great wine list, hundred-year-old wine cellar (yes, it's in the cool cellar and yes, you can go see it and even better, book to eat down there), old home with history, nice garden views. The oyster-spinach said was well-presented and... More

We dined at the Best Cellar many years ago when it was in its original location. It was excellent. This year, we were in Blowing Rock for New Year's and decided to eat there for New Year's Eve. What a change. We were expecting another great meal, and what we got was a disappointment. My scallops were underdone with almost... More

A long time institution in quaint, lovely Blowing Rock it'd been awhile since we'd visited the Best Cellar. Service - from hostess to staff - was a delight. Food, spot on. Grouper is a fixture on the menu = a hugh plus for us. Recommend.

Reservations for dinner highly recommended as restaurant is not large. Staff was very friendly and helpful and timely. Had crab cakes--very good. Had oyster spinach salad---excellent. Lobster bisque on a cool November evening could not have been better. Overall has to be best dinner site in Blowing Rock.

We have dined at this restaurant several times and could not wait to bring our family for a dinner there...boy were we there in the wrong day or has there been a management change. We had a reservation for a party of 6 for an early dinner. We arrived a few minutes early, only to hear we could not be... More

While in Blowing Rock every summer, and when celebrating a special occasion or just a "date" night, there is no finer place than Best Cellar. It has a wonderful cozy atmosphere and the food is fantastic. We have always had wonderful service. If you happen to be in town during the summer months on a Friday, make sure you go... More
