The owners of this place clearly care about what they're doing. They genuinely seem excited about the fresh ingredients when they describe the menu, which offers a broad selection of choices (from traditional entrees to flatbread pizzas to multiple small side dishes like the onion that everyone talks about). The drink menu is impressive well executed as well. Good food, great service. I guess it can be kind of expensive, but it's worth it if you're looking for a good dining experience in Johnstown.

We were visiting for the concrete canoe competition and used trip advisor to pick a place for dinner. Everything was fresh and local, including the smoked trout appetizer. The mixed drink menu was unique to other places we've been. It's a small but cozy restaurant and the staff was very attentive. We would definitely visit again.

We stopped in while traveling to Johnstown PA. The place is actually just a little neighborhood bar / restaurant but it's nice inside and clean. I have to say this was a bit expensive. The entrees are all "a la carte" and any side dish including bread is extra. Having said that the food portions are quite large and the quality is excellent. Everything was FRESH and cooked to perfection. While enjoying our dinner the chef actually came to our table to make sure everything was o.k., a very nice touch. Our server was very attentive and was quick to refill water or bring us additional drinks ect. Yes this place is expensive but if you want to enjoy something special I think it's worth the cost.

Stopped by on our way from DC to pick up son at IUP.
Excellent service, excellent food and comfortable, casual/elegant atmosphere. You must order the cheesy onion side dish! We will be back. Well done, Back Door Cafe! Did I mention the truffles? A must at the end of your amazing meal.

Reservations on the weekends are a must due to limited seating. Only complaint is that service
is sometimes slow but food is excellent and Denise's martini's are delicious!
