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.

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

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.

We went here for an anniversary dinner with our friends. We had heard some reports that the food might may have been a problem; not for us! We had terrific meals - incredibly tasty. The service was excellent also. The restaurant is connected to an inn, but you don't have to be staying at the inn to eat at the... More

We ate here years ago and had a better experience. This time, staff seemed harried and not as focused on service. I would expect friendlier service at such a nice place. Food was good but will try someplace else next time.
