Friends and I spent many hours at balloons having lunch then coming back and getting drinks and listening to the band. Great place, lots of seating with 2 bars. A must stop.

Very enjoyable place to eat and drink. Stopped there on Labor Day 2016 on the way to Alleghany Casino. Had a wonderful lunch and drinks. Highly recommend this place to anyone going to Ellicotville!

It was after 4pm and I had been driving for awhile. A lot of small villages with nothing that caught my eye. This place looked interesting. I ordered Souvlaki. They make it with chicken. I had it in Greece with Goat meat. Their version is basically a Greek salad (green salad with olives, feta cheese, and vinegar dressing) with a... More

When there's live music at night Balloons is hopping and very loud. However, lunch is a good time to go for a quiet meal with good pub food. The new back area of the restaurant is a fun place to eat. The Cuban sandwich is a good choice as are most of the entrees. Great selection of local draft beers... More

We ate lunch there. The quesadillas were terrible...had hardly anything in them. Little bit of chicken and maybe no cheese? French onion soup was ok, but not great. Stuffed mushrooms were bland. We also waited along time to get our food and some tables were getting theirs before us, even though we ordered first. The food prices and craft beer... More

We visited Balloons on a couples fun weekend. We had dinner at another restaurant but was drawn here after dinner due to the fun atmosphere. We had drinks and listened to the band that was there. Everyone working there was friendly and helpful and the other customers were so much fun! Would definitely return to try their menu!

Not sure why I wrote 'disappointing.' It sort of makes it sound like I was expecting something better. I guess I was. Lunch on a Saturday. Wasn't very crowded but seating took a while. Got a seat out side. Nice weather. Atmosphere better outside due to not having music blasting like on the inside. Not live music, just a LOUD... More

I ate at Balloons with a friend while we were in Ellicottville. We ate on the back patio since the band that was playing up front was a little too loud for us. If you like it loud you would love this place. It is nice that they accommodate both types of people. We actually wanted to sit on the... More
