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

The tacos aren't tacos in the traditional sense, but still quite good--and huge! Cheeseburger was a bit overcooked but still pretty good for bar food.

Scott is seriously such a nice person and welcomes you heartily when you walk in the door! I would love to support his business more. I will not go back due to the quality of their bathroom and the glimpse of the dirty kitchen I caught while going into the bathroom. The bathroom is disgusting and out dated. The toilet... More

I can't say enough about this place. The food was excellent (tacos of course) and the beer was cold. The owner, Scott, went out of his way to make you feel welcome. Very attentive staff and fairly priced menu. Many of the Tomahawk players came here after the game with their parents to eat and BS about their big win.... More

The tacos here had great reviews so we had to try them. The large is very large! The taco soft shells are hand made and delicious but I wasn't so keen on my filling of teriyaki chicken wasn't as good as I'd hoped but they had great beer!. The owners and locals were very friendly. A cool little place.
