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 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

As we live in Blowing Rock , we eat there once a year because a guest insists. The food gets worse every year. Had dinner there tonight - one of two only groups in the restaurant. Lobster bisque had not one tiny bit of lobster, although the broth was fine. Some of us ordered a cup, while others ordered a... More

If you are looking for fine dining during your visit to Blowing Rock you will not be disappointed at the Best Cellar. My wife and I have eaten here on several occasions both at the former location, which was destroyed several years back by a fire, and it's present location just a couple of blocks off main street. It is... More

Never been disappointed in meal here. We stay at the Inn, so Saturday night is always our night for Best Cellar. Though tables are limited, reservations can be obtained, as many Inn patrons explore other venues in Blowing Rock. Having said that, I would make reservations as far in advance as you can. They will be busy.
