I walked down from the Holiday Inn to try it out and was more than pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere and the food was great plentiful. The owner served me and was such a nice guy!!!

Attended a hockey game and this place was recommended. It's definitely a "dump", but in a fun way. It's safe, clean and incredibly inexpensive. Everyone seems to love their huge soft (fried?) tacos, but it was just ok to me--as was my hamburger and salad. Very worth checking out and enjoy the atmosphere.

Very small place that doesn't look like much from outside, but interior is bright, clean and welcoming. Waitress/bartender/cook Autumn had her hands full, but managed to keep up with it all and provide friendly service. Went with the recommended tacos (very good), fried ravioli (also good) and wings (good enough, but nothing special). Hoping we get back to try a... More

I have lived in Johnstown for more than 50 years. The taco's at Scott's by Dam are by far the best in town. They are super size, the shells are very tasty and they are jam packed wth meat & sauce & cheese & lettuce & tomatoes. It is a great stop before a Hockey game!

Scotts has some of the best tacos around. Great small town bar and a good stop before and after a hockey game. If your hungry a large will taco will fill you up with no problem. They are soft shell and hang both sides of the plate.

This was a nice neighborhood bar, clean and friendly, in a sleepy downtown. Everything else closed around 7PM. The Holiday Inn suggested Scott's by Dam. The Pirates game was on the big screen and we had a few beers and a taco, a large taco, which they are known for. The large taco was large!!! and good.

Cozy little sports bar on the edge of downtown Johnstown, near the War Memorial Coliseum. Cold beer. Friendly service. Have ONLY ordered the tacos here - but it's a family tradition now, when we're visiting from FL. We keep going back because the food is excellent and the prices are LOW. Excellent value here!!

While Johnstown's Thunder in the Valley weekend motorcycle festival was going on, my friends and I decided to stop in this place on a Saturday evening to have a few beers and kill some time before we walked down to the outdoor concert a few blocks away. We had drank at this bar many times before and had always had... More
