After thoroughly enjoying the place during our last visit; I have to say this visit was a letdown. We arrived with a party of 4, as we brought family along to enjoy the experience. The only table that looked big enough was right out front by the window. The others were small booths along the wall, a very long table... More

Great food service & prices! Great shopping, wine tasting & craft brewing! Please read everything above to avoid expectations that may only apply to the slope/golf side accommodations @ Holiday Valley! If you're not bringing children & want to enjoy the nightlife...stay in the village!!!!

I found The Gin Mill to have a variety of offerings on menu. Decided on veggie wrap with chips. Potion was decent size and quite filling. Really enjoyed meal. Service was very good and it was a pleasant atmosphere. Would recommend and will return again. Casual dining.

Brought my teenage girls here recently during a weekend getaway to Ellicottville. We enjoyed the cheeseburger (it was thick and juicy, comes as you want it!), the house salad, french onion soup, fried pickles and a hot ham and cheese sandwich. Everything came out hot and tasty. The burger was best, but everything was good. The server was attentive and... More

Mid afternoon break. Out for a ride and decided to stop and have a drink and a bite to eat. Had curly fries and a small Caesar salad. Both very good. Relaxing atmosphere, good waiter!

We stopped in late at night for a few beers and listen to the band. This is a hole in the wall bar with a good selection of beer and friendly people. A place where it would be fine to throw peanut shells on the floor (if there were peanuts). A low-lit, jovial atmosphere. Unpretentious. A good hang out.

Our original choice for breakfast was too packed for a Sunday so we went a few doors down to The Gin Mill and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent as was the service (quick and unobtrusive). They don't poach eggs which disappointed a few of our party, but their sunny side up eggs made up for it. The corned... More
