We really do like Izzy's. The food is so fresh and the service is typically great. We eat at Izzy's every week.

Several years ago I went to the original Izzy's on Elm Street. I had the signature Reuben and was not that impressed. However, the potato cakes were so good that I wanted to give them another try. I had the chance a few weeks ago. This time I went to their number two location on Main Street. I had the... More

My coworkers and I have eaten here approx. 3 times. I don't really care for the food but I go along bc my coworkers like the food. Yesterday was by far the worst service we have ever received. It took over 30 minutes for our food to come out. We saw some people leave the restaurant. The place didn't seem... More

Visiting Cincinnati on a baseball ballpark tour. Went to Izzy's based on local recommendations. It was very good. The potato cakes were awesome. So glad we asked someone where to eat. Wish we had an Izzy's in Texas.

I love the "Izzy's Famous Reuben". I've ordered that every time save for once, so I can also say the Cod Reuben is really good. But I went back to the corned beef next visit and since. The "pickle bucket" they bring out when served is a very nice touch. The pickles are excellent dills. If you get it to... More

This is one of the staple food places in Cincinnati, like Graeter's. Everytime I come, I get the same reuben and pancake. it's an EXCELLENT value for the amount of food. I haven't found any place that is even remotely like it.

Most of us over a certain age remember the original Izzy's and the original Izzy and Rose. This ain't it. What's better is the elbow room and consistent pricing (OK, Izzy never really hurt anybody with much more than an extra quarter or so). The food is still fine, and the menu is much expanded from the old Elm Street... More

When I heard that this is the place for the best Rueben I had to check it our. I always try ruebens at all different restraurants and this one takes the cake. I had the ruebenator and it was the perfect combination of ingredients. Then came the potatoe pan cakes and those were also delicious. If you are a fan... More
