The food at Isadores is mediocre at best and the service is even worse. Even the Cobb salad was of poor quality. I've eaten here twice and the only thing that was good was the desert. The atmosphere is dark and not especially friendly.

We were greeted by pleasant wait staff and seated quickly. We had delicous apps and dinner. Service was great. They have a brick oven stove they make flat breads in. We had a flat bread and it was outstanding. Towards the end of our meal...More

The atmosphere here is great, but not a great selection of food. Service was acceptable, bar was fully stocked.

Bad service, has a funny smell...like bad feet. Food was average and way over priced. Felt we were rushed out where it was close to their posted closing time. Very under staffed for the amount of business.

Finally tried Isidore and loved the warm setting, friendly atmosphere and service. We each sampled from their extended/upscale pub menu and enjoyed our selections. Will definitely recommend it and return

We ate all the way through the menu and enjoyed all of our meals. The vibe is great for little ole South Berwick. It's refreshing to have a place like this to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and relax. That being said, it's...More

For whatever the reason, the owner feels it's logical to only have one or two servers working at a time, so this means you're stuck waiting for what seems to be forever (and that's just to be seated!) The last time I visited with my...More

Isadore's ihas been in downtown South Berwick for a couple of years now. Parking is a little bit of an issue but there is a lot behind the building (off street) that usually has a spot or two. Isidore's has excellent food. There is a...More
