Really great spot, took a poll at work and Isaacs way was #1 on our list of downtown restaurants. So I tried it out a couple times recently - their reasonably priced lunch was fantastic, my eggs benedict were perfect. Went again for super recently and had an awesome time, the maple salmon + vegies just amazing, good beer list + cocktails. Nice vibe.

Dinner was delicious, as always.
I tried something new, the squash Wellington with mushroom sauce. Very good.
Love, love, love the full bottle of water that is kept on the table for customers to pour for themselves and that we didn't have to ask for water like you have to at some restaurants.
Food proportion was very good.
Definitely a favourite place with our family.

It was good as usual, I did not like my entree choice but that was my personal taste. Dessert was good, service good other than paying for the meal. It was busy and our waitress was not available in a timely manner to allow for paying with cash. We had theater tickets so on a timetable. We usually use this restaurant when attending the Playhouse and we have had good experiences.

Our reservation was for an office Christmas party of ten people before attending a performance at TNB. The reservation was easily made, using the "Open Table" app and I appreciated the reminder email which was a help in confirming that our reservation was made. Our group was placed in the cozy, private room which was the perfect size for our group. The service was great and everyone enjoyed the supper very much. We sought out Issacs Way for its varied menu and vegan/gluten-free options so that we accommodate our staff's dietary preferences.

Ribs were tasty, but dry around the edges, and first cup of coffee was cold. Service was good, but had trouble getting attention of the waiter to replace cold coffee. All around, we enjoyed our experience, and would recommend.

On Nov. 8th my wife and I had reservation`s at your Fredericton restaurant, celebrating a special occasion as first time guests. We were much disappointed, being served luke warm vegetables, and my husband`s steak was tough.I probably will not be returning or recommending this venue to friends.

I really enjoyed the restaurant and our appetizers were amazing. I ordered the Squash Wellington with Vegan gravy. When our meal had been plated and ready to come to the table they discovered their vegan gravy was no good. So I had to choose to eat it without gravy or order a new entree -- but my husband's was ready to eat now. So I took it without gravy, but I really thought it needed the gravy to be enjoyable. It was disappointing. Our desserts arrived and were good but our coffee arrived when the desserts were almost gone and it was stone cold. We sent it back and asked for our bill. This was our first visit and I so appreciate the vegan choices and the healthy menu options but this visit was rather disappointing overall. We will however come back and try again. I believe these thimgs happen sometimes and based on our appetizers alone I know this place has some delicious food.

Service is consistently excellent but even better this time, as our server actually replaced our coffee mugs, which had gone cold over the course of the meal, with new, hot mugs - his suggestion. Really considerate!
I also like this restaurant because it sources local food.

Although, this is my first visit and have not an opinion on what my guests ordered, my husband and I ordered the seafood chowder. Very disappointed in that there was very little potato, and I think the fish must have swam through, because there wasn't much in the bowl. Also, too watery. Like my chowder thicker. Overall taste was okay . Not too salty. Would consider another option if I am visiting again .

To be honest the food was not very good. There were 5 of us and 4/5 found issues with the food. I had the open face steak melt. The steak was very dry, bread was soggy, and the cheese was overdone. Another had the chicken club, it was OK, but there was a bone in the pulled chicken on the sandwich. Two others had the ribs and both said the ribs were very dry and overdone. I usually like the food at Isaac's Way, but this experience turned us off for a long while. But on a positive note the server was excellent, very pleasant.

I’m a fairly frequent visitor to Fredericton but I haven’t tried all the good restaurants. Of the ones I’ve checked out I think this is my favourite. They use good locally sourced ingredients to prepare interesting variations on “comfort food”. The atmosphere is pleasant and fairly casual, the service professional. A nice spot.

I found the restaurant overly noisy the night we were there. There was a children's show at the playhouse the same night so there were a lot of young children there. The noise level was high. I have been at the restaurant numerous times before and everything was fine, but this time a little noisy. Food was great.

Food is an expensive hit or a miss. Red pepper pasta would have been ok if they used more than a spoonful of sauce. Felt like I was eating simply boiled pasta 90% of the meal. Seating on patio felt like I was in a conversation with every table around me making it hard to have a conversation across my table. Service and local beer options were good.

We had relatives in from Ontario and they wanted to go out for a meal and a few drinks before we went out to the harvest . The patio offer was perfect The waitress was exceptional. I wish I had got her name as she was great. Food was great as it always has been in the past. Thank you for such great service
