I won a gift certificate to the Phoenix tavern otherwise may have never tried it as i am not so much a bar/tavern kind of person, but went for lunch and the food was delicious/homemade. Now it is on my radar for a good place to eat.

This place was crowded so obviously there is something appealing to someone about this place. Everything was very mediocre.

When in Johnstown be sure to stop here. Sasha was our waitress and was so pleasant and gave us great info on the food they serve. So many yummy selections. She told me about the homemade desserts.

Thankyou for the great review. Sasha is a superstar. She is my daughter so I may be a little biased. Honestly we receive many compliments about her. She really enjoys taking care of people. This is a family operation with many long time staff members. They take pride in the food we serve and the attention paid to all the... More

Lunch consisted of a tuna plate, a bowl of beef stew and an Italian hogie, all were well prepared and fresh. Excellent service from not only our server but a man who may have been the manager. Small full service bar, reasonably priced, a little short on atmosphere but made up for that with friendliness.

From the outside, and inside, don't pre-judge the food. The building exterior is drab. And the interior bland at best. The food, on the other hand, is great. We ordered the pulled pork nachos as a appetizer. Sweet, juicy, pulled pork, nicely mixed with cheese, scallions and corn chips was a great start. My wife ordered a simp,e salad. The... More

This is definitely a place worth visiting. The beer list is good, and the food was terrific: comfort food with some creative twists. We loved the chicken wing combination. What a great idea, to be able to get a platter of two wings for each sauce! The chicken ball was a taste of home with a twist: shredded tender chicken... More

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.

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