Cheers: Bartender gave us to go cups, he knew that the drive back to Buffalo was gonna be a "wet one." Outdoor beer garden is a peaceful oasis away from the stresses of life. Exposed brewery equipment to drool over. Kitchen is exposed with open burners at back of the house in case you need to create some of your own flammable excitement. Wonderful wooden bar complete with grantie roller thingy to rest your abcess covered arms on and not contaminate the bar. First bartender put up with my obnoxious ordering friends. Second bartender gave us free growler for inconveniance of waiting for malfunctioning credit card machine. Hop vines for your climbing/swinging enjoyment. Food was enough to feed two, the Reuben had at least a pound of cholosterol laden meat. Bartenders know their brew and how they brewed it.

Jeers: Food is pricey, but if you are able to finish it, you are a pig. Be generous, bring some home for the dog/cat/etc. You most likely don't need the extra 500 cals, plus this frees you up to have a couple more brews, or purchase a growler for the road to adhere to your Atkins diet. Beer garden too serene, could be improved by changing the water fountain into a "flaming fountain." Brewing equipment is bolted down making it difficult to remove in the middle of the night. Free growler was just a growler, no brew. Possible to bump into patrons eating while stumbling back to bar for refills. Friend stressed over his chicken finger plate being "too small" (the plate itself, not the food). Only one urnial could make bathroom vists bladder unfriendly.

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.
