I stopped in here after visiting the Harrisburg Mall for a shopping trip. I must say that I had a very good sandwich here, and also a very attentive waitress who really seemed to care about her customers. She brought out a free pickle plate which was very tasty, and I enjoyed it. My sandwich was very unusual, as it... More

Arrived at Isaac's and the hostess greeted us promptly and showed us to a table. We asked if she would mind if we had a nearby booth and she agreed and cleaned the booth for us on the spot. That's good, attentive service. My wife had a butternut squash soup and a Mini Mallard. I had a regular-sized Flamingo, one... More

Had dinner for family of 4. Trainee waited on us and did a fine job. Food was prepared promptly and everyone was pleased with their sandwich. Have eaten at 2 of these, now, and found them consistent and good.

Yes I said it. If your looking for diner style food you will be better off somewhere else. Service was mediocre. And the food was sub par. Not sub par is that great greasy spoon type place... It's just bad. Hit the Mexican place around the corner.

Hi, Jimmy! Sorry that your visit to our Paxton Street location did not even come close to meeting your expectations. We pride ourselves on making all of our sandwiches to order using fresh ingredients, our soups and deli salads are made-from-scratch on a daily basis and we don't have fryers. If something isn't right, we want to fix it. Please... More

We went around 11:30am on a Sunday and it wasn't busy at all. The hostess was friendly. The restaurant was clean. They had a decent sized menu with a quite a bit to offer. The sandwich we wanted to order had bacon on it and they were out of bacon! So we ordered a southwest "pizza" and it was pretty... More

I go to Isaac's every time I'm in town - for their tomato cream soup. They offer a variety of unique sandwiches too. Such a great choice for great flavor combinations.

Hi, Melissa! Thank you for the review...I think our Pepperjack Tomato Soup is the best, too...although I may be a little biased on that! :-) More

I got a pretzel roll Rose of Sharon sandwich with a green salad and Asian dressing. I liked very much. I would definitely recommend it. Service was also very good.

I am a huge Issacs fan. All of their yummy sandwiches, soups, salads and wraps are delish and named for birds. It's moderatly expensive for a sandwich place but it's yummy so it's ok. The staff is great. It is a local chain and I like that the company treats their employees well (like health insurance benefits for part time... More
