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

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.

The Gin mill was a relief after a good SKU at Holiday valley. The prices were reasonable. The chicken wings were delicious ! they were just crispy enough, and seasoned well, fresh carrots and celery, great appetizers, the bartender was very friendly and the atmosphere is fun for all ages. A little tight fit with the tables and chairs however,... More

Excellent burgers with a good set of choices. Good customer service and an all-round enjoyable location for evening entertainment. The local Wednesday night band has been playing every Wednesday night for 32 years! Very impressive.

Second year in a row we visited. Great burgers and tried wings for the first time this year...the Connor Cajun Butter Garlic sauce and they were phenomenal. Will definitely go back when we visit Holiday Valley again.

Service was very good. Menu choice was limited but decent. I ate there a few times and each time the food was good. Prices are reasonable. I'd go back.
