Great atmosphere and service, everyone is very friendly. Can always expect the food to be delicious and consistent. Have never had a bad meal in the 20 years I have been going there. My favorite bar/restaurant in Johnstown.

The Phoenix is hands down the the best place in Johnstown. They have the friendliest yet most professional working staff that I have seen in my travels. Sasha will brighten your day no matter how busy it is or how busy she is; she makes a wide variety of amazing drinks. Opt for one of her many "mules." On the... More

Casual old style tavern. Good home style cooking. Crab soup on Fridays is highly recommended. Simple atmosphere, not classy.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. The description as a casual old style tavern fits us well along with the home style cooking and outstanding crab bisque. Buy, I believe we are classy ( treating everyone new or regular, young or old, lower income or millionaire... with dignity and respect, making them feel welcome and... More

Thanks for the great review. I think you covered all the bases. I honestly do not believe we have a weak item on the menu. Our salad vegetables are so fresh and crisp you can actually smell the freshness. (Can you tell I like salads?) our quesadillas are also outstanding. Thanks again for the great review and I hope we... More

This place really took me back to my childhood days of delicious home cooked meals that we enjoyed every Sunday as a family. I had began my meal with the Crab Bisque that was so savory and rich in flavor I simply couldn't wait for the Baked Fish Dinner I ordered as my main course. It was just as my... More

Thank you for the outstanding review. Sounds like we hit it right on the money with you. You are right, everything you had was homemade. There is virtually no turnover in our kitchen so the staff is well experienced in preparing our food. If ever something is not right, be sure to let me or Sasha know so we can... More

I describe the Phoenix Tavern as the show, Cheers!, where everyone knows your name. The service is incredible, the food is excellent, but most importantly, i like going to a place where the workers are genuinely interested in you and your time at their business. This is my go-to place!

Stopped in before a class reunion. It was a Saturday afternoon. No crowd except for what seemed regulars. As friends started coming in before we headed to our reunion near by, you could tell the regulars and the one bar tender were getting agitated. I turned from the bar to greet a friend and brushed another customer. I said excuse... More

None was filed about this. I interviewed all the staff and posted an open notice to customers asking for any information. No one has any recollection of events similar... More
