“Great Burger!”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Had lunch at the Gin Mill during our E-ville stay. Had previously seen a review showing this place had great chicken wings. Wings were ok, but the Gin Mill Burger was out of this world!

“So good that we kept coming back”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

This was our favorite restaurant during our visit to Ellicottville. Located squarely in the middle if the small town, it serves as a great meeting place for the community. The staff are very inviting and offer great advice about all the entrees. The menu is mostly bar fare, but it is excellently prepared and offers great value for the cost. The appetizers are superb, and the bar features a full host of on tap beers. The decor is what you would expect from a ski village bar, and the attitude is completely laid back. You will feel at home at either the bar or corner table.

“Not so great...”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Was recommended to go there....not so great. Cold food, had to send my dinner back. Huge, greasy burgers....only limited pub food selection. Salad was from a bag, not freshly made, pasta was noodles with the artichoke dip on top that they use for their appetizer. Fun atmosphere though....would be better for just drinks
