Great atmosphere in both the sunny eating room and in the bar (various locals dining for lunch mid-week). Friendly, courteous staff, apologetic for taking a bit longer in getting our first drinks. Selection is impressive and fresh, both on tap and bottled. Food is gloooorious (visions of Buffalo wraps and Pulled Pork wraps are still dancing in my head) and fairly priced. Overall, a wonderful should-visit establishment if youíre in town for a few hours.

Very nice bar. Man was alittle slow serving us, but it was busy, he did a good job of pouring our pints. Lots of beers to choose from. Recommend a trip here for any beer lover.

Went here mid to late afternoon to beat the heat. Crowd at the bar was locals chewing the shit. Large selection of american brewed beers on tap save 2 imports. Service was good an attentive. Beer served in proper glasswear. Food was standard pub grub but well prepared. A bit pricey but all in all a cool spot.

Older place, lots of character. Nice selection of taps and bottles as mentioned by rudolf. Bar owner really looking to bring in some good stuff. Also being right next to Mr. Goodbar you really canít go wrong.

What a great spot. Good mixed crowd, although after 12am it was on the younger side, but what place isnít at that hour? Great tap list with lots of range. I didnít look at the bottle list at all.

Very good selection on draft that is always changing. Including some Green Flash and Bells which is usually pretty hard to find in Western New York.

Went on a slow Saturday night. Initially, service sucked but it got better the longer we stayed. The draft list was pretty impressive and it had many beers I was interested in trying... and that isnít an easy thing to do. Food was very good - high end pub grub. I enjoyed this place quite a bit.

8/13/2009 I went here last week while on vacation with the family. Our visit was on a Tuesday evening for a late dinner. We were there at about 8pm and the place was quite busy, we got one of the last tables in the dining area. It was a long day of yelling at the kids in the car and I needed an attitude adjustment badly. The place is separated into two rooms the one on the right houses the bar area and to the left the dining area which also has a patio for outdoor seating towards the front. The beer menu was about the same size as the food menu and had about 30 taps most of which were stellar. Many great bottles on the menu as well. I had on tap ST Choklat, Weyerbacher Heresy, and a Big Rock Chophouse Sour Cherry Tripel. All were excellent. I had a steak and my wife had a sandwich. My steak was good, my wifeís sandwich was as well. The kids split a sandwich. Points off for no kids menu! Our waitress was slow but attentive. She took the kids meal that they split and put it on two plates without being asked, that was nice. I wish I had more time in Buffalo because I would have loved to work my way through the tap list. Oh and as a tease they listed Oak Aged Ten Fidy as coming soon on tap, they suck :)

Coleís has been an Elmwood fixture for 70 years. Recently theyíve done a serious upgrade of their beer selection. Last time I went there were taps from Bear Republic, Stone, Flying Bison, Rogue, Ellicottville, Wagner Valley, Brooklyn and others. The bottle selection included Rare Vos, Celebrator, Delerium Tremens, 60 Minute and many more. They even had Robert The Bruce and Alpha King! Bar staff is great, they remember you after your first visit and take care of you. The owner came up to IPFreely and I when he saw us drinking 3 Floyds and we talked for a while. This place rocks! Next door to Mr. Goodbar
