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

Disappointed the the old piled high corned beef sandwiches here are a thing of the past. I would rather they raise their price and give me the amount of meat they used to.

Izzy's is a great local chain located in and around Cincinnati. There is another location located right across downtown near the Duke Energy Center. Izzzy's is great because of its freshly made sandwiches and delicious potato cakes. The staff is always helpful and willing to recommend items for first time guests. I love their Reuben sandwich which is served on... More
