Riley's is gone. Stopped there in mid-November 2014 and it was locked up tight, with a for sale or lease sign on the wall. So don't take the 10 minute drive out of town anymore.

On a recent visit to the southern tier we decided to bypass our favorite spots in Ellicottville and continue closer to home before stopping to eat. Saw this place and gave it a try. A Friday, around 4:30PM. A nice rural tavern, got seated right...More
