We had a lot of fun dancing at the Gin Mill. It was very crowded, but we enjoyed the music the band played.

There are lots of really good places to dine in Ellicottville but The Gin Mill is just ok. The food was fine but restaurant was not very clean, especially the bathrooms, service was below par as well.

This place is great. The burgers are fantastic, the fries are bagged frozen. Wish they were better. Had a great waitress. But the pregnant bartender is horrible an rude. I give this place 5 stars cause the good out weighs the bad

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.
