We were pleasantly surprised, not a dive, clean, friendly, casual, great drinks and great food (I got swiss mushroom burger and bp, he got calzone). Be sure to buy some house cashews in a container to take with ya! We'll be back when we're back in town.

Right next to the Holiday Inn Express on Scalp Ave. Nice sized menu for a bar. Average priced drinks. Good atmosphere.

The pizza is great, the noise wasn't. We were trying to have a meeting and the group next to us was very noisy. They were celebrating a retirement.

Haven't been here in a while, but the drinks keep getting pricier and the service is very slow. The food is decent, depending on what you get. It could be better but if you're looking for typical bar food with a nice atmosphere it's not too bad.

I thought that I would get a great Pittsburgh steak salad since we were in the area of the 'Burgh. The steak salad was made with Steakums! And it only had about five French fries. Ugggghhh! Service was slow. Luckily the beer was cold.

I work next door to the Alibi and they provide delivery which is what drew me in to try their food in the first place; it's always nice to have other options for delivery besides pizza and chinese!! The past 2 days I have ordered their grilled chicken salad and grilled steak salad and BOTH were to DIE for. It's... More

The Alibi is primarily a bar, with numerous menu selections you wouldn't expect to find in such an environment. So the selection, taste, quality and price of the food, well................. raises the bar for bar food. It's a warm friendly kind of place, and one you needn't be afraid to take the kids or anyone with sensitivities to a bar... More

This is primarily a bar, been in its location (strip mall) forever, but doesn't feel stale. The circle bar is surrounded by booths for dining. We saw several families there as well as single women, who seemed very comfortable. Simple menu, good pizza, full bar... A great place to stop by for a drink or quick bite.

When I'm back in Johnstown I always meet up with friends here. The beer is cold and the food isn't bad. I love getting the breaded cauliflower with cheese sauce! The saff have been friendly everytime I've been there. They have a mid sized party room a bar that's 4 sided and some booths around the perimeter. They have a... More
