Our server seemed irritated and impatient with our table. I couldn't tell if it was her demeanor or my perception of her expression.

We want to return to sample more of that funky entree menu. So often the menu in a decent restaurant is a matter of reorganizing the dishes offered at all the other establishments, or offering a different take on popular dishes. At Isaac's Way 'different' is a series of tantalizing experiments in flavour combinations. We shared the chili-molasses ribs so that we could indulge in an appetizer and dessert - all terrific. I might have put a bit more chili, but the existing blend is already brilliant.. We were sorely tempted by the squash Wellington - next time.. The restaurant takes full advantage of the excellent local craft brewing. Ambiance and decor is casual/relaxed. Service is attentive without being overbearing (casual/relaxed). Don't hesitate to try this restaurant..!

Fabulous experience as usual. We were a party of eight with 4 children so most of the noise was ours. We had a private room so it was great. Out waitress was amazing and the food was as well. This is one of my go to restaurants when I am in Fredericton.

Service was great, food was average, drinks were good. We had made a reservation days in advance, but once arriving at the restaurant we were seated at a very tiny table for 2 directly against a wall. Table felt small and crowded, especially since we made a reservation in advance.

love the integrity of this business, all locally sourced food - not pre-fab restaurant supply, they give food scraps back to a local pig farm and they support local artists with ongoing art auction of every piece on display. The food is delicious too!

We used the private room for a dinner presentation and the spot was great. Food was fantastic. Service was not great, but not bad. I found that the staff were aloof and more concerned with chatting with themselves then serving.

I love the variety of food and the high quality of the options. We had people with nut allergies, shellfish allergies, dairy allergies and gluten allergies and we all managed to find food we could eat that tasted great for a decent price. I call that a win for a restaurant.

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.
