Unusual menu. I think they are trying to offer a similar fare to Panera's fresh food menu. The sandwiches and soups were wonderful but pricey. Drinks are a little on the high side as well. Overall, a good experience.

The sandwiches were quite good. Pretzel bread was delicious and fresh. Stopped here for lunch before heading to Indian Echo Caverns. Service was slow and disorganized which took away from the overall experience.

Thank you for posting your review! It was a busy President's Day Weekend for us but being in a tourist area we should be more aware of how our service is in the dining room. Matt Hartman, our general manager at this location, will definitely want to hear about this so he can fix this. If you have any additional... More

It was a Saturday afternoon at about 2:30 pm. My husband never visited an Isaac's so we stopped in during our weekend getaway. We stood at the hostess stand for at like 5 minutes-completely ignored. Several workers walked by. Finally, the hostess came up and I told her there were 2 of us. She said it would be a 10... More

We have been coming here for years and we are always happy with our food. My kids enjoy the rainbow bread and the cookies for dessert. I love the pepperjack tomato soup, and the tortellini salad. My favorite sandwich is the bird of paradise, the pretzels rolls are so good. Service has always been pretty good. I appreciate the loyalty... More

Johnny R, Marketing Coordinator at Isaac's Famous Grilled Sandwiches, responded to this review

Thank you for the review! Didjaknow that the Bird of Paradise was part of the original "flock" when we opened up back in 1983? It actually was the sandwich that Phil Wenger, the founder of Isaac's, used to test out different grill/broiler/ovens until he came up with the best one to use for our sandwiches! More

Isaac’s Famous Pepperjack Tomato Soup is delicious. The combo options are nice and one of their soups can be paired with a list of 1/2 sandwiches. Our server was very nice and attentive. Always a treat to eat at Isaac's!

Thank you to Isaac's for the free sandwich you offer to all our active and retired military....we had the Scarlet Ibis and Twisted Chicken Pretzel. Done perfectly and they were busy.

I eat here 2 or 3 times a month. Last visit last Friday night. Two of us for dinner. Ordered the special seasonal butternut squash soup. A bit pricey but truly delicious and complex - hearty with a small spicy undertone. I had Portobello Mushroom Salad and my companion had Roasted Pepper and Avocado Salad. These are full-meal salads that... More
