Isaac's is a block from the convention center, so one might expect they should be accustomed to crowds! Frustration was obvious throughout our dining experience. These gals were frustrated; harried. The impression they all gave me was one of irritation with diners - not joy...More

I came across while looking for food outside of my hotel and was impressed by the choices. The Ruffed Grouse sandwich is great!

No longer in the original location - but still close to the heart of it all. Fun sandwiches with quality ingredients and the most amazing and varied soup menu. This location also has a bar!

I am hard pressed to ever find anything wrong with an Issac's sandwich - the addition of the pickle dish is wonderful - I love pickles so this was a great treat and they are tasty! Issac sandwiches are the bomb!!

I stopped by for a late lunch. I had roast beef sandwich on a pretzel roll. Yummy. Service was good a fast. We caught the change of shifts, our first waitress came over with our new waitress to introduce her. That was nice.

Searched for a restaurant that would meet children's needs and also have options for adults. We hit peak lunch hour and had to wait 30 minutes. They had a nice draft beer selection plus numerous craft bottled beer- that we enjoyed while we waited. They...More
