All good. Just what a bar should be, a comfy home-away-from-home. Good food, wide eclectic beer selection, service, atmosphere, decor, live music. Unique and lightly eccentric too, the refreshing anti-corporate feel of what a community watering hole should be.

The title says it all. A throwback neighborhood "gin mill". Great pub food, cool decor, and good honest, service....kind of like you would expect in Mel's diner. Reasonable prices, big portions.

Took a trip to Ellicottville today to walk the shops, made some purchases and decided to stop in at The Gin Mill for drinks and snacks. Husband had a beer which arrived quickly and was cold. I ended up having Pinot Grigio and then Chardonnay....More

A group played on Wednesday when we were there but I do not know their name. They played a bunch of retro songs and were really good. A lot of people danced and the group went into the crowd to get people up to dance.
