We couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Michael, our waiter was so helpful in our food choices and allowing us to leisurely take our time as it was a special night for the two of us. We will definitely return to The Best Cellar should we be in the area again. It's worth the trip.

We read reviews for many places in town and many seemed to be almost the same. This one stood out from the rest and we were glad that we tried it.

Our waitress, Corey, also made the experience great. She know the menu and helped us select the best options given what we were looking for. We had a nice bottle of wine to start along with some mussels. My wife had the NC black grouper and I had the ancho chile rubbed salmon. Both were outstanding and came with sides. They also served a dinner salad and warm freshly made bread before serving main course.

For dessert, don't miss out on their banana cream pie. It's a very large slice and also well worth the calories.

The service was terrific and we didn't have to ask for our waters to be filled or anything. She even helped give us some local flavor on things to do in the area.

We have dined at the Best Cellar a number of times in past years and had very enjoyable meals. Our meal this time was good, but probably over-priced. There are many good places to dine in Blowing Rock and this is one. However, there are others just as good but more reasonably priced.

I remember this when it was truly excellent with an exciting menu and excellent food. Since moving to this location, the food is very ordinary and only average. Good thing is that there are other local restaurants that have taken over its previous status

Great menu options. The specials are truly special. Outdoor and indoor seating areas. Great service
Here is a sample of what we ordered and the costs
Diner One - Granny Martini (Stoli vodka, sour apple schnapps, pineapple juice), Caprese pizza (crunchy and flavorful),
beef shortribs (so tender it falls apart in your mouth) with potatoes, baked acorn squash (this is so good it should be a desert),
banana cream pie (the best pie around)
Diner Two - Bella Gos Marioni Pinot Noir (good flavor with any back bite), oyster spinach and bacon salad (the best salad
ever, crunchy, crispy and flavorful), grouper tuscan style with potatoes and rice pilaf (fantastic rice) and green beans,
mixed berry tart
Total $150 without tip
Try the oyster spinach salad as it is unbelievable. The Caprese pizza is also a must. The banana cream pie is not to be missed!
