Hi there! My husband and I grew up near the Rosebud Inn and have frequented the establishment many times. The owners are just plain good people and are dedicated to making their clientele feel special, going as far as sending out a complimentary gift certificate on the month of their birthday. The food is excellent and, we hear, their steaks... More

18 ounce delmonico for $23 sounds too good to be true. But the steak was melt in your mouth tender. The seasoning was spot on and I can't rave enough about it. The homemade house Italian dressing is worth the trip alone. Then add warm housemade rolls and dinner is complete.

Quiet little Italian place. Family owned and operated. Clean and quaint decor. Good Italian dishes--especially the veal parmesan and chicken parmesan. Delicious steaks. Tuesday night pasta special is wonderful!

Wife & I came over from Altoona based upon previous reviews. Average at best with "just okay" service. Would never return based upon this visit. Luke warm fries served with the fairly cold hamburger and veal parmesan sandwich. Burger dry and hard to swallow. Veal was likely from Sam's or another processed supplier with gristle and fairly tasteless. Really hard... More

This is the place to go for the best Italian dishes in Johnstown. It rivals Olive Garden any day from their salads to Italian cuisines. If there is a "best kept secret" in Johnstown, this is it.

Don't let the out of the way location and dated decor put you off. The Rosebud serves delicious comfort Italian food at a surprisingly cheap price. We have visited a number of times and have never left disappointed. The Crab stuffed Scallops over linguine is a favorite: very little filler, large and tender scallops, perfectly al dente pasta. The chicken... More

We had forgotten about how good the food here can be. Stopped in one evening on the way home from visiting family. We've now been back numerous time. The food is high quality and service excellent. Prices are reasonable. The menu has a wide variety of choices that include specials. Staff is very friendly.

The Rose Bud Inn is off the beaten path, and often forgotten by folks when it's time to go out to dinner. What a shame. Offering mostly Italian cuisine, the menu is small but offers a LOT of variety. The Tuesday "Pasta Night" special lets you pick any 4 selections for one low price. And if it's a great steak... More
