The best place for big delicious savory wings. The beer is always good and cold plus a nice crowd especially on weekends.

My husband and I have been coming here for over 30 years. We moved away, but a visit to J-town isn't complete without a stop for their wings. Absolutely the best wings ever! We have never had anything else on the menu.

Pavlik's, Faranda's Murphy's..I'm old enough to have tried them all (1963) by far, still the best wing in town. The burgers,pizza,even the soup gives you a great reason to experience a nice neighborhood bar. "Good sports" of all sorts should be their motto. Either before, during, or after a great place to be..It helps if you're IRISH, but not necessary...

Good wings, not your everyday wings. These wings are huge, done to a crispy dark brown, served naked. Frank's Hot Sauce or Siracha is on the table. Paul, the owner, was great, this guy truly believes in making his customers happy!

Great neighborhood bar with the best breaded wings you'll ever find. Big wings and hand-breaded. A Johnstown tradition. We have moved out of the area, but when we return, Murphy's is on the list of places to go to. Many people return home and take wings back with them because you can't find anything like them. We live in Virginia... More

The bar restaurant is nothing to look at, but the wings are amazing. The best of the best. Cheeseburgers are tasty as well.

Famous for their chicken wings, I much prefer the hamburgers. The enormous wings are breaded and fried to a deep dark brown. They are famous throughout the area and people order them 10-12 at a time (you can order just one, if you like.) The hamburgers are grilled on the flattop and served (with your choice of condiments) on a... More
