The food is decent, but nothing out of the ordinary that sets it apart from anyplace else. The service was acceptable. A bit pricey for what you get.....as are most of the restaurants in Ellicottville, unfortunately!

Great wings. I had the cuban sandwich another night it was very good. I've eaten at number of places in Ellicottville and this place had the best service of the places I had dinner at.

Great wings, a great selection of beer and a courteous staff! We went on 25 cent wing night. It was crowded but the service was still excellent!

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.

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
