“best deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

great sandwiches stuffed with fillings, and you can swap bread/rolls. Salads are good too. Best are the desserts, such as peanut butter pie. Old fashioned Dr Brown's soda.

“Usually excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Issac's is a cute sandwich place. All their nutritional info is online, which means you can make good choices. Service is usually excellent. Today it was a bit slow - with a wrong order - and our meal was immediately comped. Generally a good kids menu. Pretzel sandwiches are well with it.

“Good Food and Special Touches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Whenever we are in Lancaster, Pa, we always enjoy a dinner at Isaac's. They offer an interesting assortment of sandwiches and the quality is top notch. This time my husband had their classic Rueben while I tried the Finch, turkey breast, bacon and muenster gilled on pumpernickel bread - so tasty.

We wish we could visit more often so we could sample more of the menu - the pretzel sandwiches,for example.

On this visit, we opted for dessert - a flourless chocolate torte, drizzled with raspberry sauce. We told our server, Junior, that we would share a piece, but instead, he brought two pieces on one plate, because he said it was just no fun to share. The cake was so delicious and rich that we ended up taking some home with us.

That kind of service, the delicious food and the free pickle bar, keeps us coming back.

“Never disappointed with this deli.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I really enjoy Isaac's Delis and have eaten at several around the state. I like that you can order a sandwich and change what fillings you want as well as the breads to suit your taste. Our waitress was amazing and didn't write anything down; everything was exactly as ordered (including my list of substitutions!). I also really love their potato chips. Isaac's food and service is consistently outstanding.

“BEST Soups & Sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Even if the description or look of the soup is disgusting I ALWAYS try it because it never fails to be delicious. They have so many varieties of sandwiches but I usually always get the ones on pretzel rolls even though they tend to be a little smalller. They give you pickles at the table - cool bright decor, GREAT deserts, YOU will not be disapointed! If you live nearby sign up for email alerts and get great coupons. No I have no affiliation with this place but ask anyone - this truely is the best lunch place if you want a sandwiche!
