“Nightclub”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

DJ Frank was awesome, we had party of 10 or so went there to have a good night and ended up having a great night, danced to great tunes from Beyonce through David Guetta and even little Bee Gees.

“Beef on A Weck”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Balloons is really a small bar that offers an extensive variety of live music. Dinner was quick. We all had Beef on a Weck (a NY delicacy). The server was very attentive as well as friendly. Food was ok. The band that was there was good, but if you are looking for a quiet evening - this isn't the place to go as it was really loud.

Anyplace in Ellicottville is going to be expensive to eat. FYI. All in all - a nice experience.

“Great vegetarian food”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

They have a great portabello sandwich and the Halloween party was a lot of fun. They also have a good selection of beer on tap.

“A rockin' nightclub with decent music”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Unfortunately, we didn't have dinner here. But we stopped on two consecutive nights and discovered some super musical talent. One band was "Little Sister" and this all-female band was a rockin' and a rollin'. The next night, Balloons featured a blues band and they were just as good. We found ourselves amidst their Halloween party so it was a real hoot. Apparently, this is where it's at for dancing and music. We were told that the "younger set" in Ellicottville frequent Madigan's which is just around the corner. We were told they get a bit wilder there and their Halloween outfits are something else. We were quite happy with Balloons. One point of contention: the bartenders should be on the same page in regards to their drink prices. One charged us $13.00 for two drinks; another charged us $15.00 for the same drinks. So, which is it? It's difficult to argue the difference when they can barely hear you above the noise. But, should we come back to this neck of the woods, we definitely would visit Balloons for a good time.
