Right in the heart of "America's County", sits the largest sports bar in town. Tailgatez is the final result of two owners with a vision. One owner has an established successful construction company that spans across many states. The other has an established catering business that is popular throughout the tri-state area. Put those two together, add their tailgating parties at various sporting events over the years, combine that with years of traveling and seeing many different bars and restaurants, then throw in the need for a family-friendly-sports-themed-bar-restaurant. Tailgatez is a 6,000 square foot restaurant and bar with a collection of sports memorabilia gathering on the 18 foot high walls. Two indoor-outdoor patios frame this huge building. The glass garage doors offer the ability to enjoy a snowy day while the space is inviting in the summer time with the feel of eating outside. Twenty-one televisions line these walls with satellite and cable channels, including the eight foot by twelve foot projection television that will amaze any sports fan!
The owners of Tailgatez and its employees are local residents. This is a quality that helps give this enormous place a comfortable feel. Although they may not know everyone's name that comes in, they do make you feel at home. This is great for those of you just passing through this picturesque and historical county.
Tailgatez is also a great supporter of the local high school sports teams. The vast walls proudly display the local varsity teams and photos as well as hosting many of their team parties. This is also the favorite hang-out for the Johnstown Tomahawks hockey team!
Although Tailgatez is a brand new establishment, the employees and owners have been participating in local community events and charity events since they opened.
The menu is a large variety of food items with choices that will rattle any one's taste buds! To make the things even more interesting, additions are made to the menu about every three months! A giant smoker that can hold at least 600 pounds of meat, is a standard appliance in this spacious kitchen. Add to that- 21 beers on tap, and lots of craft beers in the cooler! Six packs and twelve packs to go are available too!
Tailgatez is definitely the place to go, for happy hour, dinner with the kids, good times with a group, or just somewhere that feels like home!
