Great for lunch, beautiful view of Plymouth waterfront. Prices reasonable and plenty of 5 seconds of summer . Services very good.

I'm seriously concerned with the reviews I've read, where visitors indicated this was a great meal. When you are seated and it takes you 15 minutes to even place your cocktail order, that's an indication of how the rest of the evening is going to go. I asked for a cocktail menu and they do not have one. There is... More

Now I travel for work and I eat in a ton of restaurants. I have been here before, about a year or so ago and it was stellar. The difference I see is that was a Wednesday evening and this trip was a Saturday at 7pm. We arrived a bit early and we were seated in a too on the... More

Cloudy day and busy day. Good food, lots of it. View would have been perfect if not for clouds. Lovely water view. I'd give them a definite thumbs up!

Too bad because that is the best thing about this restaurant . The place is nice and the atmosphere and view are terrific. The food was average at best. That make this place an underachiever in my book. You would think you would be getting the freshest seafood that is well prepared. NOT the case. My broiled seafopd medley was... More

I celebrated my birthday with a lovely dinner at Isaac's. I had a dinner specialty with scallops, shrimp and scrod that were lightly sautéed and covered with a Ritz cracker topping. My meal was yummy with lots of seafood...I will have the other half tomorrow. My husband had Shrimp a la Greque (sp) which was a very generous portion of... More

My husband and I went to dinner recently at Isaac's. This place is quite elegant, overlooking the Plymouth Bay Harbor. We both had seafood but I also had their clam chowder, which is out of this world. We love to travel, I try out New England Clam Chowder everywhere we go, and Isaac's is the best by far.

The food on this evening was terrible,as was the waitress. Of 4 dinners only one was good.The pork loin was so dry and the sauce that was on the side was so thick and tasted like flour. The seafood casserole was also too dry,with burnt breadcrumbs on top. The waitress never came back, to ask how everything was. When we... More

Ate here for our last meal in USA before flying home. Glad we did the place has class. Prices were correct for what we ate - chicken with prawns and apricot glaze, unusual but delicious. Fried clams, prawns and haddock - equally so. Good service, nice ambience and a view over Plymoutn harbour.
