“Tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Went for dinner during Arthur because it was one of the few places with power. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Service wasn't overly speedy, but we were in no rush to go back into the storm and it was busy.

Food was quite tasty. You have to pay for it as it's not cheap, but I felt like I got what I paid for. I really enjoyed the new decor and atmosphere, and overall it was a great meal. We'll be back.

Glad to hear your meal was A-1, Tridus! We hope you will visit again soon (Arthur, on the other hand, is not invited!) - Tina

“Lovely dinner experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a delightful Atlantic dinner at Issac's - the food is excellent. Scallops & salmon dishes were excellent. The atmosphere is apparently changed on a regular basis as the artwork is sold for charity regularly. There are a few secluded rooms with delightful quotes on the walls for groups, and these quotes are wonderful.

Our server was somewhat lacklustre in her delivery (which was reflected in her tip), but overall this is a very highly recommended place for dinner in Fredericton. Enjoy!

Thank you Dave for your wonderful review of our little restaurant. We also appreciate the comments about service being bland, and we've shared with the staff. Service is SO very important, something we care about as much as the food. Visit us again next time you are in Fredericton! - Tina

“Lunch menu sparce, evening menu is great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

I have dined at Isaacs Way 4 or 5 times since it reopened and I really enjoy the new atmosphere and the evening dinner menu. The lunch menu however isn't great and there isn't even an option for a burger. They also have a patio now however it is a view of the parking lot and it isn't very nice. We actually sat on the patio, got a table, looked at the lunch menu and left. Dinner however is excellent and the beet/goat cheese salad is my favorite menu item.

Greetings, c_sage77, thank you very much for this good review. We are known for our burgers, even at lunch time, however they are unavailable during the weekend brunch as the grill is being used for breakfast dishes. Perhaps that was the day you visited? Thank you for your continued support, and for enjoying the Beet and Goat Cheese Salad! - Tina

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

In town for a reunion and went as we were in the Crowne Plaza next door. Too handy to pass up and we were thrilled with the service, the food and the building. Everything was excellent particularly our happy waitress and the ability to spend time with friends not being pressured to give up our table, even on a fairly busy night.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Great restaurant in Fredericton. The menu has a good range of choices and is excellent value for money. We liked the restaurant at its former location which burned down. The new venue, in the former York County Courthouse is another reason for going. The service and quality of food is consistent and I like the link to Fredericton's past. We have never been disappointed in our meal. Top choices - apple curry chicken or their delicious fish cakes - which one to have is our only dilemma.
