No guarantee that you can get the Patio, but we did. Service was very good. We started off with Scallop Fritters..excellent. I had the Sundried tomato cod, found it a little overpowering, will try something different next time. Peter had the ribs, delish, but messy,...had ask for a finger bowl. All in Alla lovely dinner and nite out.More

The menu sounds delish but when the food came was a disappointment Dulce salt on fries all fluff no flavor...Fish was the cheapest cut imaginable but price not reflected in what the customer cost ..they do have some interesting ideas just have to make them...more cost effective and done better. Will say loved the art work on walls and overall décor and the service was good despite the limitations.More

Always love Isaac's Way but since Covid, we have been using take-out rather than dine in. Tonight's meal was simply delicious - Chicken Penne Pasta. Highly recommended, generous amount of chicken, lots of peppers, spinich, pasta and the sauce is to die for. Will be...back for more.More

They offered a good selection of entrees from burgers to ribs to seeafood. It was so delicious, we both agreed to returned the next night. There were so many things we wanted to try. Being August we were able to sit outside and there was...a lovely view of the waterfront. Staff were friendly.More

I’ve tried many things from the menu and have never been disappointed. The pork tenderloin is one of my favourites. The ribs are nice and an exceptional portion considering the price! Most recently I had the maple salmon and I’d definitely recommend that as well.

We have visited Isaac’s way several times since my last review and I feel it gets a little better each time. The main reason for our visit this time is their outdoor shaded patio on a hot evening. The menu has good choices and the...staff is pleasant and helpful. I had the soup of the day, which was squash and apple and it was very good. We both had the fish cakes which were also good. The wines by the glass are expensive for a 5 ounce glass. They offered nice desserts but we opted out as a friend had just given us a coconut cream pie!More
