My favorite bar in Ellicottville. With a plethora of stuff on the wall this is a classic après ski bar. Great beer selection with craft varieties from around the state and around the country. The burgers and wings are great as are the hand cut fries. In the evenings they have music.

Outstanding live music...one of the best bands I've ever heard in a bar. Not so awesome food. Not so awesome staff.

Great service, draft and wings. One of the oldest bar/restaurants in Ellicottville. Captures the essence of the town.

This restaurant is great! The food was good and the staff were friendly. The establishment has an arcade in the back and is right on the downtown strip of Ellicottville. The burgers are great and the place didn't feel too packed or busy. I would visit this place again if I ever come back to Ellicottville in the future.

After a day of skiing at Holiday Valley, I really just wanted a good burger and a brew! We'd originally planned to go to Dina's, but I'm so glad that the Gin Mill was our "Plan B". Their Gin Mill Burger hit the spot! We enjoyed the ski decorations on the walls, the many choices of beer and the great... More

The Gin Mill is one of those restaurants that is simply what it is and what it is it does very well. And at what a price! Their burgers are simply shmecking good with good toppings, a healthy order of fries and this place is such a great value it was a wonderful surprise to open the menu and find... More

Fun atmosphere. Good food. A nice place to grab a burger and a beer. Can get get a little loud on a Friday night, so don't expect a quiet meal.

I rated this restaurant poor due to the wait staff and my meal......the owner did bend over backwards to make it a more positive experience and to make things right.....which I give her great credit for and appreciate. We ate there this weekend while in town for a ski trip. In general, our waitress was very curt, short, and irritated... More
