I stopped in here over the weekend and was quite delighted with my experience. The bar was packed and full of people looking to have a good time. It was well lit and clean with a prfessional atmosphere. The beer selection was nothing special; your typical brewpub lineup. They also had bottled beer to go in bombers and sixpacks.

The service was good; although not the friendliest. The bartender did a nice job and was helpful with information. The food was great. It had some loaded pub fries and the shepard's pie. Everything was top notch. My friends and I engaged a local in some beer talk that was very helpful and enjoyable. I would come here again for sure; especially during ski season.

A nice spot in E'Ville and pretty much the only place with interesting craft available (with the exception of a few local bars with very basic craft offerings from the local breweries). The garden is a nice area to have a beer on a summer night. The quality of the beer varies, but is generally average to above average. Worth a stop if in town.

The best beers they make I never see in the store. Looking past the fruit added beers they're known for, Ellicottville makes some excellent brews. The town, the brewery, the quality of the beers all add to the experience. The cuisine is that of an accomplished chef, good portioned; simply, but creatively flavored, and delicious. This is a rather expensive destination, but worth the money.

Location, location, location. This place does really well, being located where Holiday Valley Ski Resort is. And, the crowds prove it. I don't know what this place is like during the shoulder seasons, but during ski season, it is packed. Still, the service was pretty good and the food was of good quality, for a place like this. The beer selection is large, but of overall average quality. However, I find several that I liked just fine. If you're in the area, it's a must stop for craft beer lovers or those desiring a good burger and fries.

This is one of my favorite stops - during the summer months... During the summer, it is a bustling little town, with a lot of nice events and many things to do.During the skiing season it can be very crowded. The brewery / bar / restaurant is very nice. They just completed a very well done expansion. Good food, good beers, good relaxed atmosphere - try the beer garden and enjoy.

I have been here multiple times in the summer/fall months and not during skiing season. This is a pretty cool place, it has the look of a lodge, with outdoor seating available. The food is good if not a little on the pricey side. The bar is really nice and is a good size.A full bar is available with a really outstanding bourbon selection. The beer is good and above average in my opinion, lots of variety and tasting flights are available and are presented in a really nice way. The beer prices were ok and the servers are generally ok with getting you an extra sample if its hard to make a choice. This place tends to get very busy during peak hours (even during the off-season) so plan accordingly since the wait times can be long.

Overall, I enjoy going to Elicottville Brewing Co. on occasion and would recommend it.

Stopped by for dinner while visiting my grandparents, who live nearby. I didn't even know a town like Ellicottville existed, much less an above average brewpub!

Ellicottville is probably the best resort town in Western NY, very popular with skiers but also busy in the off-season with plenty of things to do and a decent downtown. One of the draws is Ellicottville Brewing Company (EBC), which is located on a stretch of shops and other restaurants. We grabbed a seat in the beer garden, which sat as many people as the indoor area. My wife and 2 year old were along as well, and the waitress brought some crayons and a few toys for my daughter to play with. It was very family friendly - probably 75% of the people there had kids under 10.

The food was okay - my salmon was a little dry but the kobe burger was pretty decent...well cooked. We were surprised at the menu...not your typical brewpub menu...lots of good options.

The beer selection was fantastic - my wife and I were able to try everything by ordering a flight of the "regulars" and a flight of the seasonals/limited. 14 beers total, most being quite good and a surprisingly good blueberry wheat beer that is also bottled. This is a great place in a hidden gem of a town. EBC has been around since 1995, so you know they have been doing great things and will be a permanent fixture for years to come.
