Fun stop!

We have visited this place several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always good - nothing real "gourmet" - just wings, burgers, salads, sandwiches ,and some entree dishes. All of it very tasty. Love the atmosphere - a little noisy but fun! They have live music on a regular basis... read more

The Gin Mll is very easy to find, located in downtown Ellicottville. Not an overly large venue, it can get crowded but that is part of its allure. Live entertainment in the evenings. No cover charge. The menu is bar food, and they have quite a good selection. Prices are mid-range. I had a Greek salad and was disappointed with... More

lot's of beer on tap - they actually FILL the wine glasses (don't you just hate a giant glass with a shot of wine in it). Live music several times a week - you may catch the locals dancing up a storm!

The Gin Mill is a great little place in Ellicottville to spend an evening. I wish we could build places like this in Canada! Its cozy, full of people and a great place to meet new friends. The beer is cold and the food is good. The burger is awesome! I would highly recommend.

Stopped here for a meal on a driving trip in upstate New York. It is an interesting bar with some great signs and memorabilia and a wide selection of beers on tap. In ski season I am sure this place is a great spot. However we stopped for a dinner and were greatly disappointed. My wife had a hot roast... More

Stopped in for a beer and lunch. Loved the atmosphere -- it made me feel like I was on vacation. Our bartender, Zac, was great!

We just went in for one drink and had no food, but it had great atmosphere. Seems like it would be hopping during ski season.

We made a stop at this bar while out bar hopping on a Friday night, and then again for Bloody Mary's the next morning. I had nothing to eat, so I can't comment on that. It was a cozy place with a very fun vibe. Live music and a variety of beers on tap. The bloody mary was awesome; people... More

The Gin Mill is on the main street surrounded by shops and other dining places. The décor is great and the Gin Mill is very cozy. Wonderful selection of draft beers and even two hard ciders. Nice selection of pub grub and even a few almost healthy choices! A good place to bring visitors to the area.
