“Tired family restaurant & bar”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Family type restaurant and bar that is looking a bit past it's prime, feeling like you are in your grandparents' wood panel basement. Prices are well above what you would expect to pay for the decor and reflective of it's central location in a resort town. For $15 I got a few vegetarian raviolis with what seemed like storebought tomato sauce - did not enjoy and would not return, although your options in Ellicottville are pretty limited.

“Really a disappointment”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We chose this restaurant , mainly, because we could make a group reservation. We waited for close to an hour for our food. The food all came out at different times. The kids were served LAST...a good 20 minutes after all of the adults were served. We witnessed two of the waitresses painting each others nails instead of working (on a very busy night). One of the waitresses was ours. The kids food came out cold. This was, literally, money thrown away (since we really didn't eat...our food was terrible )

“Old Favorite No More!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The food was large in quantity, but not in flavor. We were there on a slow night, not crowded at all, but service was just so so. Our kids liked the French onion soup. Although the beef stroganoff was highly recommended, I would never order it again. I thought it was a bit pricey for the quality. We loved the old Barn, & it was a definite favorite, but next time we will try the Birdwalk again, another old favorite.

“Another greasy spoon”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

If you like greasy spoons, this is the place to go.
My dinner entree, pime rib, was actually ok. My wife had the beef Stroganoff, one of the specials, and it was terrible.
