We arrived at the restaurant 45 minutes earlier than our reservation. We went to the bar and were recommended the High Country Ale brewed locally at the new Blowing Rock Brewery. From the moment we got our drinks our evening at Best Cellar was stellar. We sat in the lobby relaxing in front of the fire and enjoyed small talk with other guests. Then we were led to the grotto or "cellar" area for dinner. Three of us had the blackened rib eye. It was cooked to perfection with a fabulous blue cheese cognac creme sauce. My husband chose the filet au poive in a cracked peppercorn brandy sauce and said it was great. Well worth the price. We will absolutely dine there again.

This used to be our favorite special occasion in Blowing Rock. The menu hasn't changed for years. They no longer serve lunch, which was pleasant. The last time we dined here, I ordered my tenderloin steak medium - first one came out well done and the second one raw and grizzly. Best Cellar is off our list.

We followed the recommendation of the receptionist at our resort and tried the Best Cellar. Excellent food, comfortable country ambience, very good wine list and fine service. Great laid back evening in Blowing Rock.

The outside and upper floor area of the establishment were as charming as it gets. We were very excited upon arrival. The bar area served a nice selection and we all enjoyed our cocktail. We were then ushered to the cellar area. It was not decorated. Looked like an overflow area. The noise level was unbearable. We could barely hear each other. The wait staff was young and we had one " in training". That was certainly fine. The food was very good. Portions small however. Dessert was the best part.

Our hotel recommended the Best Cellar to us. It was fantastic! The food was perfectly prepared, the service was outstanding, and they had a nice wine list. The short ribs were some of the best I have ever had! My girlfriend had the chicken with goat cheese and chorizo which was also superb. Do not skip dessert!
