My cousins and I were looking for a place to eat after a long day of snowboarding. We stumbled into this place. We ordered wings and it didn't disappointment us as they were awesome wings. Service was great even though it was very busy. They managed to provide us with great service. Anyone in Ellicottville looking to grab a bite... More

Best soup and fried baloney sandwich for lunch! It was a quick walk into town. The service was very friendly as well as the decor. Did not have a long wait.

Never been to Ellicotville before, but will return to explore a bit. Stopped on the main drag for lunch and walked into The Gin Mill. No reason for going there or not going anywhere else, was simply getting hangry. Quaint place, nothing fancy, but I would say it is comfortable. It looks as though it would be a place where... More

Visited from the Holiday Valley resort for some late night ambiance and food. Definitely lots of ambiance, but the food is not the best. They could improve the menu and quality of food for sure. I had a chili and the meat tasted like it was dumped from a can - I expect more from my food I am paying... More

Gin Mill is now serving breakfast! Very good omelets. Corned beef hash and sausage gravy are also excellent. Coffee just $.50 when you dine in! For lunch and later, burgers are a good choice.

Almost all of our group ordered burgers & fries... we were so satisfied! They were just d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s! We were a party of 22, staff was amazing and very patient towards our large group of people. Had a really good time here: great food, good music, a couple of beers, nice atmosphere, typical American Sports Bar decoration... Just what we wanted.

I visited The Gin Mill recently on a trip to E'ville, or EVL as the locals call it. This is a good place to watch a game. It is pretty much just like any American sports bar that I have visited in any city throughout the country. When you walk in the bar is on the right, tables are on... More
