My husband and I were in Fredericton, NB. The first week of November, 2014 and were referred there by other family members. The minute you walk through the door you are greeted like old friends.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. Sometimes it can be a bit of a hit or miss in that if you get the wrong chef your soup might be bland...or one night they told me they were no longer serving salad with every meal, and then the next time I went they were...so in that regard it's kind of...

We had a great pre-Christmas dinner with friends. Service great, food tasty. The menu is substantial for choice.

This was one of my favourite restaurants in the city before the fire because of their fish and chips. The new Isaac's Way still has fish and chips, but they have changed them, and not for the better. They have made some extensive changes to the menu and have gone from traditional pub fare to a fancier type menu. This... More

I love Isaac's Way. The service is always on point, and they have a nice selection of local beers and ciders. The menu is seems abbreviated, it could use 2-3 more entrees. My entree's have been great. My wife has had minor grumbles about hers. Great with kids. Bid on or buy a painting right off the wall! The restaurant... More

Having grown up in Fredericton, it was a treat to once again visit the old court house. I ate at Issac's Way before the fire and had planned on trying the new location out many times but kept forgetting until friends recommended it. We ordered what they recommended, Squash dish and Pork loin dish. Presentation was excellent but taste just... More

My husband and I were visiting Fredericton this Christmas, and stopped into Isaac's Way to grab a bite to eat. From the atmosphere, the service we received and food- it was all enjoyable! I had the goat curried burger, and thoroughly savoured each bite. The side salad was light and complimented the meal! We will be back. Thanks to everyone... More

I had never gone to the old location before the fire, but had heard of all the good works they do in the community and thought I would give it a try when the new location opened. I would have to rate it as "average" as both the food and the service are not as good as a number of... More
