One of my favorite places

The food, atmosphere, and staff are some of the best in Johnstown. Great place to go anytime, but especially before events at the War Memorial since its in short walking distance. The owners treat their costumers so well. It feels very homey and safe. If you go you have to try their burgers or... read more

My friends and I ate here a couple times while in town watching hockey. Scott and his family own/run the bar and are extremely friendly and generous. My friends son plays for the Tomahawks and frequently talks about how Scott feeds the team and helps them out. He really looks after the young men. The bar itself is small and... More

Scott's is a great place to eat and feel welcomed :) Highly recommended - could easily eat there every week. Great items to try are their signature tacos, hot roast beef sandwiches or the bacon and tomato grilled cheese. Yum!

Friendly atmosphere with good food. The bar and seating area was small and seating was tight but was clean and bright.

Scott's by Dam has the best tacos, ever. They are large, filling, and incredibly satisfying. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service at this establishment. It is a great local, family-owned business and you can tell. The family usually waits on you behind the bar or at the tables. They are friendly, talkative, and helpful to... More

Scott and his staff make every effort to make sure that you enjoy your experience. The food selections are simple and excellent. The tacos are the biggest and best in town. Seating is limited. Prices are way past reasonable.

Had the chicken taco, great as always! Went in 2 days later for dinner, ordered a burger, again very good! The service again was phenomenal. Treated everyone like... More
