This place is always good. It's pricey so we save it for special occasions. Try the crab cakes, the lobster bisque or one of their specials.

The best of the Best Cellar was the service. The server showed great attention and particularly to gluten free options. The trout and grouper were very good and my Manhattan was well above the cut. We would recommend the Best Cellar.

We are two senior couples that had wonderful meal. The restaurant was very busy, but the service by Otto was excellent. The wives had the salmon and both husbands had the trout. All the meals were excellent, as it always is at the Best Cellar....More

Delicious food in a beautiful setting. We sat on the porch which overlook the gardens of the inn and so enjoyed our dinner. The entrees as well as the sides are top notch.

Friday night means music on the lawn at Best Cellar. However, if you want a great dinner, skip the milling around outside and head in to your table. Inside its cool and cozy. Drinks are well prepared and the wine list is reasonable but not...More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Not overly pricey, but excellent menu choices, great food, and excellent service. We had a ball there and you will, too!

A must place for dinner while in Blowing Rock. Had the Caesar Salad & the special Grouper & it was outstanding. The staff was delightful especially Missy (the general manager) & Sabrina (our waitress)

We've been fans for many years; frequented the former B. C. until it burned. Tonight was magical: my wife enjoyed the Black Grouper and I LOVED the Rack of Lamb (one of the very best I have ever enjoyed). The wine pairings (Chardonnay and Malbec)...More

Our food was prepared by an experienced chef. The menu offers a range of options with fresh vegetables. the flourless chocolate cake is the best I've ever tasted... It's my new benchmark for flourless chocolate cake. A limited but decent selection of wines is available...More

They have a very lovely menu. Unless you are super picky, you should be quite content with the options. I had mentioned previously their vegetarian option because it's rare when it's exceptional as this was.
