I had the blackened salmon with citrus hollandaise sauce. It was very tasty. Service was good and atmosphere was relaxed.

Once again Isaac's Way didn't disappoint. Great service, good food and nice atmosphere. We made our reservation online..easy to use, received confirmation that our request had been inputted and they were ready for us on arrival. I had made a "special" food request and our server was well briefed on it when she came to take our orders.
We'll be back!

We really only had one issue. One of our meals was late coming to the table. The server explained that it was a mix up in the kitchen. I get that, things happen, I suggested that a complimentary glass of wine to the person kept waiting would help make the wait easier but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. Other than that it was the usual experience, good food at good value

Excellent food sourced mostly from local or regional providers. Staff is very knowledgeable on the menu and was very helpful at walking us through different suggestions.

Menu isn’t large, but it was difficult to make a choice as everything looked great!

Portions are a good size for the price and they have a great local beer list.

We booked our reservation online and where we were seated we felt like we were on top of the guests beside us. It was very noisy and we couldn't have a private conversation. My husband had never been there before and we were excited for a date night for the two of us. The guests beside us were so noisy (not the restaurant's fault) but I do believe the seating arrangement was very poor. It truly impacted out experience and I don't think we'll be anxious to return.

I was a bit disappointed in the food this time...not up to your usual good fare.
One of us had chicken salad sandwich and said he thought he was eating fish!
The carrot soup was just okay!

I have eaten at Isaac’s Way a number of times and always enjoyed it very much. This is the first time I have had issues. I ordered the steak with the “smashed” potato. I have had it before and the “smashed” potato was the highlight. This time, the potato was simply baked, cut open, fluffed up and thrown back in the oven. I was thrown off when my wife asked if we could get mashed potatoes for my daughter and she was told no. The smashed potato I had there before was essentially a mashed potato put back in its skin.

Great spot for a quiet meal. Friendly, efficient service was appreciated. The addition of salmon in the fish cakes and seafood pasta dish sounded great in the menu but sadly did not settle well - will make different choices another time.

Our lunch was fabulous! Every dish was fully enjoyed; the chorizo and goat cheese burger was one of the best burgers I've ever had (and I've had a few!). My five-year old grandson even gave his grilled cheese with hamburger two thumbs up (not just one!). The service was attentive and the art auction items were fun to peruse. A lovely overall experience!

We loved the fact that so many of your dishes were made with local ingredients. The main meal was delicious, however, the desserts were dissapointing. The chocolate cake was dry, the bread pudding was too doughy, and the blueberry crumble/crisp was almost tasteless.
The server, although a sweet young lady, seemed to be overwhelmed by our large party of twelve and that clearly reflected in the service, as well as, in the errors on our bills.
We still enjoyed our evening together and would recommend Isaac’s Way to our friends and family.

Food is always good but noise level often high. We would prefer to pay at our table as paying at front, often means delay when we have concert tickets.

It was my daughter’s birthday so we decided to go for a nice meal. We had a lovely meal and a nice drink and we were chatting after our meal while my daughter finished her wine when we were told that people were waiting for our table. That has never happened to us while we dined at Isaacs Way before, so it did leave a bit of a sour taste in our mouth as we were there only slightly past one hour. We were winding up our meal anyways but then felt we had to get up and leave right away.
